fall has arrived

So the snow is melting and it looks like some beautiful fall weather is in our forecast. For those not from Canada. I’m serious. It was snowing two days ago and now it’s supposed to be sunny and warm. I love everything about this outfit. From suede to leather it has it all.

Small Space, Big Improvement

Hi there! Here to share a few of my tips for organizing a small space into an organized useful space.

Here the space I started with…

Simple hall closet but was being unutilized to its full potential. I start by taking inventory of what needs to go back into the space.

When everything is out and lined up it’s much easier to see what you have and to decide what needs to be kept. You most often will find when you do this that you discover things you completely forgot you owned!

I then turn to storage. Bins are a great idea to organize like things. These brown bins are full of winter apparel (blah). Out of sight, out of mind right?

There is also this hanging storage compartment. Adding more vertical storage to the space. 20140901_185750841_iOS

All coats are facing in the same direction for a cohesive look. It’s important to get the basics organized but also to be aesthetically pleasing.

Everything now has a place and it’s easier to maintain that way! Hope these tips help a bit and you get motivated to tackle that small space :)

Sunshine and Lace

I absolutely fell in love with this dress the moment I saw it and saw the price tag!  I adore the white, the lace, the shape and it was only 15$ from H&M!

Please ignore the mess in the below picture. I swear it was cleaned after this photo op..

I kept accessories pretty simple with my “accent” color being pink! It was just the perf combination with the white.

Hello. Happy Monday friends.
Today was the usual with work and then I went to a yoga class taught in a park around here. Weather was beautiful and I was able to work on my tan as I worked on my downward dog! Perfect combination. Yoga has been so therapeutic and helpful!

When I got home I was somehow in the mood for more so I went for a run. Living in the country you get the most amazing trails and paths to run on. I discover new things and different ways every time. It felt amazing to get the endorphins pumping. They work wonders!! Right?! Came back and lifted a few weights!

My grandpa is here for a visit from Ontario. Got to catch up a bit and watch Catching Fire. Am I the only one in this world who hadn’t seen it yet? It was fantastic as I suspected!

Sorry this is so wordy and zero pictures! Still trying to figure blogging out but let’s get through this phase together!

Til next time
