Master Bedroom Reveal

When we bought our home in 2009, we tackled many of the main spaces... the kitchen, powder room etc, but 8 years later and our master bedroom looked the SAME as when we moved in! Even though I painted most of our home by now, the master remained untouched. Life gets busy, you know the drill. So I did my best to tell myself I was fine with the dark chocolate paint from the...

TRAVEL | Wild Rock Adventures, Ucluelet

After my incredible trip this past winter storm watching in Ucluelet, I knew I wanted to come back with Terry this summer.

INSPIRATION | Loft Living

This year we've been doing some renovations on our home and like usual, it has me browsing pinterest for inspiration. Lately I've had an obsession with lofts. I don't know if it's because they feel like a childhood tree fort, or because they are so open and airy... but they are inspiring for sure! I love the idea of an industrial loft with lots of mixed textures and neutral colours. Here's some favourites..  Images...

I'm sure many of you can relate to that. With all the things that have to be done around the house or with work, it's usually me that comes last. And recently I decided that's enough! There's never actually time and to be...

TRAVEL | San Ignacio, Belize

In the first part of our Belize Travel Guide, we shared our experience traveling around the cayes off the coast of Belize. Belize is such a diverse country with so many unique landscapes and this is partially why we decided to head into the jungle. Not as many tourists take their time to head into central Belize towards San Ignacio, but we were certainly glad we did!  San Ignacio is located right on the...
