DECORATING FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Happy Friday!  We are officially sixteen days away from Christmas. Even though our tree is out, the kids want us to try a real tree this year. I am not sure if it’s worth it since our Christmas trees are picked the first business day after Christmas by the city. So we won’t enjoy we won’t be able to it enjoy as much. I might end up buying a little one for their bedroom because the holidays are all about making everyone happy and merry.

I don’t know about you but every year I like to change things up a bit when it comes to our holiday decor.This year, I’ve gotten rid of a lot of stuff that I’ve not used over the past few years and picked new ones from Amazon.ca. The prices are just unbeatable and even lower now that Christmas is fast approaching. Thinking of getting this 9-foot tree for our dining room for next year. Below you will find a list of items I’ve purchased and a few others I am sure you will love. I am adding some storage items there as well because the seasonal decors have to be stored somewhere right? Also if you are an Amazon prime member you can receive these items in no time. Read More »

How To Wear A Monochromatic Outfit Like A Pro

How To Wear Monochromatic like A Pro

How to wear monochromatic like a pro? I don’t think I am a pro at this, but based on the few times I’ve worn a monochromatic outfit I think I can share a few tips with you. I wore this beauty a few weeks ago, edited the photos and forgot about it until I had a conservation with a friend today about pleated skirts. If you ever thought you could not wear them because of your midsection, I am living proof that you can. Here is the thing, I always get my pleated skirts from straight size stores such as H&M or Zara. Why? because the skirts have a lot to give but take me in at the same time. Read More »

It’s very hard to scroll through my Instagram these days without stumbling on a photo of Prince Edward County.

Life Simplified with Texture

Life Simplified with Texture- Assa cisse

Brought to you by Texture and TheCo.

When you live in my world no two days is the same. There are days I am running errands and taking the kids to their respective activities but today is just not one of those days. It’s only 12 pm, I’ve started dinner (crockpot is a lifesaver), the house is clean and the laundry is completed for the day. I’ve got a few more hours before the kids get home. This is the window I use to plan future blog posts, respond to emails, find inspiration for home decor, outfits and plan the menu for the week.

Talking about inspiration, where do you find yours? Blogs? Magazines? As a content creator and a mother, I am always looking for inspiration. I love reading blogs but magazines are still my favorite. Many of you may have noticed that through my photos. I am absolutely guilty of buying two to three magazines a month. The worst part of it all; I do not like to get rid of them even when they are a few years old. Hey, you never know when you will need that steak Panini recipe again right? Read More »
