It’s very hard to scroll through my Instagram these days without stumbling on a photo of Prince Edward County. Could it be because of the gastronomical delight, wineries, the antique shops or the art galleries? I must say it really piqued my curiosity. I have lived in Ontario for ages but never visited that side of the province.

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 »
