Fall Decor: Kitchen Edition || It’s all about the little things || @TheBrick #ad #partner

Fall decor is my jam, I love adding tiny autumn details throughout the house. With that being said, I’m not big on clutter or decoration overload. For the kitchen’s seasonal refresh with The Brick I kept it simple. I added pops of metallic with these silver pumpkins, add seasonal scented soap to my sink and started burning my favourite fall candles. It’s all about the little things to update a space. Don’t feel the pressure to spend a lot of money to get some seasonal decor impact. Go with what you’ve got, find some tiny seasonal trinkets at the grocery store or head in-store to The Brick. Just like that you’ve entered into the fall.

Home Decor || Sleeping like a baby… || Bedroom Oasis Tips & Tricks with @TheBrick #ad

Many of you noticed on my Instagram stories last week that we changed up a major part of our master bedroom, our bed. I don’t know what it is about Fall but every year it makes me have the same motivation… purge, organize and complete decor projects around the house. It’s like I’m preparing for hibernation, I’m kidding but not kidding at the same time. One of the major projects left in our master bedroom was changing out our mattress and bed frame. We have owned the same ultra firm California king mattress for over 6 years. The size made it difficult to find any sheet sets in Canada that I liked, strike number one. Not to mention, both my husband and I were so over the hard surface. Flash forward 10 months! Yes, it took us that long to finally pull the trigger on a new mattress. Here we are, sleeping on a cloud… it makes me wish we had done this years ago.

If you are in the market for a new mattress, here are the reasons why we went with the Beautyrest Hotel Diamond 6 plush king mattress set from The Brick. Exclusive to The Brick, the bottom layer of springs features Beautyrest’s Evolution pocket coils to reduce motion transfer between sleep partners. Not to point fingers, but “someone,” not me… moves a lot in their sleep. So the pocket coils were a key feature we needed with our new mattress.

Our last mattress was far too firm for both of us. So this time around we wanted to invested in something both plush and supportive. The soft foam and cooling gel is just what we were looking for, designed to help alleviate sore muscles while cradling you in supreme comfort it’s like sleeping on a cloud that hugs every inch of your body. This mattress was exactly what we’ve been searching for, feels like we are on vacation at an expensive resort.

My tip for creating a Bedroom Oasis: Go in store to The Brick, lay down on every single mattress and let your body make the final decision. The moment I lay on the Beautyrest Hotel Diamond 6 plush I knew it was the one I needed in my life. An amazing sleep is worth it, treat yo self! There are very few purchases that are this life changing, why wait?

New from the @Netflix #streamteam // The Ultimate Birthday Hack!

IMG_6083My little guy turned 4 this past week! I can’t believe how fast times go. We had an amazing time at The Rec Room for his pizza and arcade game party. I’ll be including more party details in the coming weeks. But for now visit my youtube video on our experience with The Rec Room.

The one thing I was so excited about this year was the personalized birthday song from his favorite Netflix show.

 

Like the success countdown to New Years feature, this was just as great. Netflix is granting parents the ultimate birthday gift with the launch of 14 Birthdays On-Demand featurettes. Starring the characters in your kids’ favourite shows like Beat Bugs, DinoTrux and even Pokemon, your kids will feel like the characters are singing just for them.

It was such a success in our home, I’d thought I’d share this birthday hack with you! Happy Birthday!

The “Grown Up” Bellini Recipe || Babes Who Brunch || Tips & Tricks with @204Park

I remember the days we used to get cheap pitchers of Bellini at our local Joey’s or Earls… packed full of sugar with that gross dyed grenadine. Well years later, my love for a good Bellini lives on but I want a more refined adult flavour. This may be the simplest recipe you’ve ever seen and if you’ve traveled to Italy you’ve probably seen one of these on a 4 o’clock aperitif menu.

Here’s one of my favourite Girls Brunch drinks with my blogging bestie Diane of 204 Park.

Pour peach purée into a glass (I like about 1 oz)

Top with prosecco (2-3 oz to taste preference) 

Garish with a wedge of peach, ice optional.

Pro Tip: If fresh peaches are not in season to make your own fresh purèe, most grocery stores will carry glass jars of “peach nectar” in the juice isle. It’s a thicker, less processed versions of juice. It’s perfect for this recipe. If you are local to Edmonton, The Italian Market in Little Italy carries it and tons of bitters for other cocktail adventures.
