TRAVEL | Unexpected Anaheim

We just got back from a 4 day whirlwind adventure in Anaheim. Like many in BC, prior to our trip, all I really knew about Anaheim was Disneyland (sorry Anaheim locals!) I've since learned there IS SO MUCH MORE!!! I've never really spent much time in Anaheim itself. In the past we've been there for a day or two to see Disney and I've never had the chance to explore much else.  Those of...

BEAUTY | Guide To Laser Hair Removal

Recently, I posted a little insta-story on instagram showing a quick video of me getting laser hair removal on my legs. Social media is a funny thing, sometimes I share things that I think people will be interested in and they’re not, and other times I share something thinking no one will care and they REALLY do! Ha! This video was one of them. I got SO many private messages with questions that I...

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. Over the years, we've done trips to the island and we wanted to do something we've never done before. After some research, we decided to book a trip with Wild Rock Adventures! I invited my sister and her 2 kids and the 5 of us hit the road to Ukee! ^^ my...

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...

ACTIVE | How To Start Running

Being someone that works long hours from a computer, usually 6-7 days a week, I have found it very hard since starting KV Bijou to incorporate regular exercise in my life! 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...

It's no secret that we have a love affair with the great outdoors and seeing these picturesque mountains in Austria stirred up our wanderlust for sure! The shoot took place along...
