With mid-January just approaching, we are nearly a month away from one of the most controversial holidays of the year; Valentine’s Day! I have never been a person who loves to go all out for Valentine’s day. I used to see guys bringing their girls flowers and gigantic teddy bears at school and nearly gag- what was the big deal about?

I could count on both hands the number of people in my life who are not huge fans of receiving actual cakes for their birthdays. Whether its because of the icing, they can’t decide on chocolate or vanilla, or they are on a diet 24/7 and don’t want the extra carbs; there is always someone who would prefer not to have a cake.

If you’re anything like me, you absolutely hate, and I mean despise, having to hit the gym and embarrass myself for a good 45 minutes in front of people who clearly know what they are doing (I do NOT).

Before I even begin writing the content of this post I just want to express how much I LOVE weddings. I was the typical little girl walking down the pretend aisle in my mom’s wedding dress, with the groom waiting at the end of the aisle in the form of my teddy bear. To this day, I love going to weddings, talking about weddings, planning weddings, etc. I seriously considered becoming a wedding planner twice and I almost enrolled in a weekend course but couldn’t produce the funding at the time. So even though I love weddings, I still think the wedding industry squeezes aRead More →

I don’t know about you guys, but giving Christmas gifts are 100000% my favourite part of Christmas. You get to see the expression on someone’s face when you hand them that gift that you just KNOW they have been waiting for. I’ve always been one who likes to give personalized gifts, especially handmade cards with pictures plastered all over the front of the awesome times you have shared with that special person. I have made so many personalized gifts over the years, I thought I would share my favourite DIY gift ideas! Personalized  Card What’s better than grabbing a regular piece of paper and jazzing itRead More →
