Modern Minimalist Touches || It’s a festive bedroom design with @TheBrick #AD

C86D06D0-FF68-4122-8CC7-8F97B22BD2A7Our Holiday home tour continues this season for a glimpse into my favourite room in our house, the master bedroom. I’ve taken a minimalist approach to decorating this year and let me tell you it’s taken a lot of pressure off my plate in the home decor category. I’m loving adding just a few touches per room to get that festive feel. We added cozy flannel sheets and furry pillows to our gorgeous Berlin bed from The Brick. I love the airy light grey linen-like polyester material, it adds to that white Christmas feel I love. We added garland to our favourite reading lamp, the Bean Bronze Metal floor lamp to add more festive cheer.

I found this modern metal “Merry Christmas” banner for our large mounted mirror. It was a subtle touch to an already elegant favourite feature we have in our room. Have you seen the new version of our mirror? Loving the Hampton Mirror for both size and the frame detail.

Finally, we added tiny ornaments and fresh greenery to our International Lux accent tables. I love the smell and the look. Perfect finishing touch to a minimalist Christmas. How are you decorating this holiday season?

I’m so exciting for Christmas this year and I’m completely covered in the gift department. I love to call myself the ultimate “gifter” because due to my job as a blogger, I get to try so many products each year that I start to play favourites. Naturally I find shopping for the perfect gift easy each year. I’ve teamed up with Diana from 204park to bring you our unique must haves from London Drugs this holiday season. Head over to her blog to see what she’s loving this season from one of our fav Canadian retailer. And head to my Instagram for your chance to win a $300 gift card to help get you Christmas ready from London Drugs. Let’s get the gift ideas going, here are my product picks:

ferrero roche chocolates golden gallery

Let’s start with chocolate! I opt each year to have these delicious Ferrero Roche chocolates ready for guests thoughtout the house. And I love to give the massive one as a hostess gift or sticking stuffer.

Next up, my game changer of the year. This Sonicare DiamondClean smart electric toothbrush from Phillips has changed my life! It gives me a dentist clean. And in white and gold… I’m smitten with the design. Add this guy to the practical person on your gift buying list.

biotherm oxygen line biotherm skin oxygen line

We all know I love beauty, so I needed to include the new Biotherm Skin Oxygen line. For both men and women, these skincare products help to correct imperfections created by pollutants in our environments. I’m loving the results and the light fresh scent. Strengthen your skin barrier and clarify your face.

Let’s talk coffee! I had to include my favourite at home coffee machine from Keurig. The Keurig K200 2.0 Brewer in “Sandy Pearl,” has made my day… many days over this past year. I love the look of it on my counter and the flexibly of cup size. 6oz, 8oz, 10oz… you name it! Plus it’s k-cup compatibility with Starbucks at home coffee brews has sold me. I love it! The water reserve is ample, so I don’t need to add water for each use.

The Google Home Mini, is small but mighty. It says that on the box for a reason. It’s way smaller, and more affordable then the original but it’s just as smart. I tell it to play songs, set alarms, tell me the weather, play Netflix and turn on my lights. It’s the ultimate home assistant.  Continue reading

Looking for delicious healthy meal ingredients delivered to your door? || @HelloFreshCA #partner

I’ve mentioned on my Instagram stories how convenient this food delivery service really is but honestly, it’s been a life saver this past month. We’ve been so busy with the holidays and the thought of dragging the kids to the grocery store throughout the week makes me anxious. Hello Fresh has saved the day. We like to cook and eat fresh meals… that’s why we have an ALL Frigde. That’s right folks we don’t have a freezer in our kitchen, just a fridge so we have tons of room for fresh ingredients to cook meals.
