Holiday Family Traditions || #hannaJams #giveaway #gotitfree

I said to my husband two years ago that I was feeling like we didn’t have many holiday traditions. I loved growing up with consistent events and activities this time of year. It was something I looked forward to and now look back fondly on. From Christmas morning hikes, to oranges as the final piece to our stocking; I loved the little festive details my parents created. When Ally was born, I would consider our first Christmas as a family a completely write off. He was only a few months old and I was just trying to survive the new born exhaustion. But now that the kids are getting bigger we wanted to start our family traditions for them.

One of the traditions I loved is our Christmas Eve Pyjamas. Each year in the evening on the brink of Christmas day, we let the kids open one family gift. It’s always new matching family jams. We then lounge together. I love this holiday tradition. The cozy feeling, matching makes us feel like a unit and it helps to transition to bedtime!

Thank you Hanna Anderson for sending us this matching set. They are such great quality. I will say, that has been one of the struggles this fast year is a) trying prints in all sizes b) finding material that I’m actually okay with on my kids sensitive skin. Hanna is by far the softness and most durability family jams I’ve tried. Plus they are crafted with the very best organic cotton.

DIY White Christmas Village || How to paint your way to a minimalist holiday

When I first shared this concept on my Instagram Stories in October, I had tons of interest in how it went but I also got a handful of concerns. So I thought I’d address those right off the hop, no I am not painting family heirlooms or priceless collectables. We do have a lite Christmas village that I would never think of painting and YES it’s my biggest pet peeve when influencers paint everything white… including things that are of value or priceless vintage finds. I assure you these houses are cheap and not collectable! With that being said, let’s chat about my DIY spray painted white minimalist christmas village project. When I say more neutral houses spring onto the decor scene last year from Pottery Barn and Homesense, I knew they would fit our mantel so well. BUT the price tag was too steep and unfortunately they didn’t go on major clearance after the holidays last year. So I decided to find a few cheap tea light christmas houses from Kajiji to paint myself. I bought these for $5 and under… but I know if i had been proactive I could have probably found a few in garage sales over the summer for less. Less detailed options can sometimes be found at your local Dollar Store too.

I used half a can of Rustoleum Painter’s Touch 2X in a flat white / satin finish. I felt not using gloss kept them more modern and minimal in appearance but that’s just my preference. These are sprayed in “blossom white” or a flat white. 2 coats were applied.

Style || All The Fall Feels

8590F506-BD73-4A14-A975-A815C3A5E576

I live for Fall fashion. It is by far my favourite style season for more ways than one. I’m so excited to partner with SoftMoc styling these moccasin flats. They are furry on the inside, perfect for keeping me warm for school pick up and drop off but so stylish too. I love the bow detail on the toe. With 125 stores across Canada you gotta visit to see all their Fall offerings this year. They carry brands like Ugg, Sperry, Converse, VANS, Blundstone, Sketchers, Dr. Martens, my fav Hunter and so much more! I know you’ll find the perfect pair to help you stylishly crunch through those lovely Fall leaves. What are you Autumn wardrobe must haves?
