Home Spring Wish List With Amazon Canada

I am so excited to announce that I have partnered up with Amazon.ca to share with you some of my favorite finds all toward the year of 2017. I buy a whole lot of things on Amazon including but not limited to beauty products, perfumes, toys, household items and electronics. The only thing I probably have yet to purchase is a piece of furniture. This Spring might just be the time since I am redecorating part of the house.

Turn your Pillow cover Into Art

Turn your Pillow cover Into Art - more on mycurvesandcurls.com

Our guest bedroom is slowly coming together. I can’t wait until the big reveal day ! In the meantime here is a little sneak peek of what the bedside will eventually look like. I say eventually because this girl changes her mind all the time. By the time you see the final product the little spot might look different. I recycled the 2-drawer chest from the boys bedroom and added to some handles to make it look a bit more expensive. This was one of my favorite and simplest Ikea hacks ever. Read More »

Great Wolf Lodge – Grand Wolf Suite review

 Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls rooms (Grand Wolf Suite) see more on mycurvesandcurls.com

Over the holidays, we traveled to Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls. After hearing so much about this amazing place, we finally decided to take some time off to have fun with the kids. December is a birth month of my first son, what is a better gift than having a good time an entire weekend in a place that is geared toward kids. I can’t wait to tell you all about our trip in an upcoming post, but first, can we talk about our fabulous room? Read More »

Co-working-space-toronto0-mycurvesandandcurls

As more and more people start their own businesses co-working spaces are becoming mainstream. For those of you who are not familiar with co-working spaces let me break it down for you. These are spaces where entrepreneurs can rent/share a desk and or an entire office space. It’s pretty much being able to work in an fancy office without the price tag. Read More »

11 Beautiful White Kitchen ideas

Beautiful Kitchen ideas

A white kitchen sounds like a good like a good idea right ? Ever since we’ve bought our second home 3 years ago, I’ve been thinking about remodeling our kitchen. By remodeling, I mean changing the tiles, add some granite, pendant lights and off course paint everything to white including the cabinets. Although I love bright colours, there is something so simple and relaxing about white indoors. I find that it’s also easier to decorate your home when you have  just one colour all across the board. I cook a lot and to be honest, I am not sure if a white kitchen is made for that. Don’t you wish you had two kitchens in your house? One for cooking and the other one just to make the house beautiful. Read More »

DIY Mudcloth Pillows + 5 places to get your own

DIY Mudcloth Pillows- where to buy
I have been wanting to share our little family room with you for a while now. Ever since I posted a few pictures on Instagram, I’ve received quite a few emails requesting a room tour. I was holding back, because this room is not complete yet. The gallery on the wall is complete, but as you can see the frames are still empty. Blame me it on procrastination and lack of time. This is pretty much what your family room will look like when you have no idea what you’re doing and or can’t make up your mind. So yeah ! it’s not your typical blogger family room with beautiful peonies and perfect  styled coffee tables. I always wanted a part of my house to remind me of my Malian roots and I think this room is doing a pretty good job.

My office Tour

 

I am so excited to share my little home office space with you guys. Many of my Instagram and Facebook followers had questions about where I got some of the items from. I seriously cannot give you any decorating advice because I really suck at it, but one thing I can give are tips on how to achieve the same look with things you have and on the budget. You don’t need anything fancy. If you’ve been a reader of this blog you might probably remember how these shelves used to look like a few months ago. When I looked back, I kind of shrugged a little bit. I used this little spot for a long time to take some of my outfits pictures during our long winter months.

My office used to be in my dressing room, which you do not want to see right now because of the mess. I moved my table only because I really wanted a lot more light. I  wanted this little space to look as cute and simple as possible. Somewhere I can work and also relax. We already keep all of our ugly books in my husband office (yes , he got the real one). The other side of my office (not shown) is where I keep all of the kids books. I am in the process of putting that spot together. While I am working they can also do some reading. If you do not have any books, use magazine holders, or even magazines to fill up the shelves. I get almost all my magazines for thrift shops for .99 each. Most of the time, they are only one or two months old. I utilize the magazine holders to store all my junks to keep the space free of clutter. You can also add some fun and colourful binders, or add a few of your accessories that you do not use all the time. I am currently thinking of adding an inspiration board and I also got my eyes on a few prints from Stephanie Sterjovski and Anna with love. I can’t wait to share the final product with you.
