I know you’re probably sick of seeing the snow on my style posts but it’s my reality. Spring comes late to most Canadians, so I’m embracing the chilly and still styling my fav winter pieces. The one thing I will say is a positive, everything winter is on final clearance. I snagged this Teddy coat from H&M for $30! Now that’s a deal. I never like to spend too much on a trendy piece like this. Are you embracing spring? Or are you still frozen in fashion?
It’s my favourite time of the year! Winter is slowly melting but there’s no harm getting a jump on spring decor in our house to lighten the mood. Bring on Spring! Throughout the year, I’m joined by a fantastic group of Canadian bloggers as we share glimpses into our homes each season. At the end of this post, I’ve linked up all the spring inspiring home tours for you to view. Let my spring home tour begin!
This year, to add spring to our living room we played off the amazing gold handles on our fav toy storage cabinet The Adept from The Brick. I love the combo of gold accents, whites and pinks. It’s a subtle fresh look you can add easily to any room.

Continuing with the blush pink, white and gold color palette. We add a few subtle touches to our Bari set from The Brick. I love the side century feel to this stunning dining set. It’s easy to add seasonal accents to change up the look when you have a dining set this classic.
This beauty post is a long time coming. I love dry shampoo, not only because I’m a busy mom but it is a time saver for everyone. But I have a confession to make… I quit Dry Shampoo a year ago! Why? Because I was sick and tired of the white residue. There were a few on the market that were designed for darker haired individuals like myself. Then the residue to be brown but it was still residue! It looked gross in my hair and left it feeling grimy/dry/ brittle to the touch. And if I used the basic white residue dry shampoo, I looked like I was 90 years old! So dry shampoo and I parted ways…
Fast forward a year…
Luckily, brands have heard our complaints and stepped up with invisible residue free formulas we’ve been asking for! Finally I’m back on the dry shampoo train. Here are my top 6 completely invisible beauty game changers:
