Wednesday Wish List (Stay Warm Edition)

I know I have said this in previous posts before “that it’s cold outside“, but this time I mean it when I say it’s bloody cold as hell out there!!! -40 with the wind chill! Come on mother nature!!! Now that’s extreme!
Stay warm this winter with the following essentials!!!!!!

These leg warmers from Roots are adorable!

Chill out at home with these Granny Slipper Socks and keep your feet warm and toasty.


Run home from work and cuddle up with your loved one under this wool throw. When it’s this cold out its expected to sit back and relax on the couch!

And while you’re sitting there under that blanket you best be enjoying something warm. Kusmi Tea is a great treat, try the detox one – we all know we could all go for a little detox after the holiday indulgence.


Oh and what comes with cold weather? Yup, SNOW. Oh the joys of shoveling snow….NOT! Yes, shoveling snow is a great workout, but it also leaves you with sore muscles thereafter. Especially, when you got to go outside a few times a day. Apply this heat rub to the affected areas and your pain will be sure to go away.



Apply Keihl’s lip balm throughout the day. Our puckers get super dry and chapped with the winds and cold weather.

20140108-225820.jpg Since we are on the topic of splurging – ya Canada Goose costs a lot, but your hands will be thanking you for the protection and warmth. These down-filled mitts are going to keep your hands dry all winter season!

Stay warm!

Wish List Wednesday

Happy 2014!!

This year’s resolution is going to be about organizing and making my house feel more like a home. In order to achieve this goal I’m going to have to declutter (a lot) and add some sparkle to my place.
I think the following items will help me achieve my goal.

Oink oink! Love the gold pig book ends
Adding art to the walls adds warmth to any home. I heart these prints


You can never have too many pillows. An array of pillows will brighten any room.

I picked up a lack shelf from Ikea recently and I know it’s going to help me organize and display some nic naks.

D.I.Y painting project! How stunning would this pattern look in your home.

Let me know what resolutions you have made and share your organizing tips with me.

Wish List Wednesday (Gold + White Edition)

Have you been noticing the new colour combo of gold and white lately? Are you hearting it as much as I am?

The combo is modern, elegant and classic, in my opinion.
If you are still not convinced you like the duo, here are some items that may change your mind.
