Highlights

It's been a chilly couple of days here - but with a bit of cold and snow usually comes some gorgeous frosty trees. I've loved how magical the backyard has looked each morning and how wide Layla's eyes are when she sees it! ⁠ ⁠ I'm sure half of you will think I'm crazy for asking this, but what's your favorite thing about chilly days?⁠ ⁠ Every time we get a cold snap I realize how much I love winter - and what a little snow baby Layla is, too! Let's hope baby #2 doesn't mind the cold, either! ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ Parka: @outdoorsurvivalcanada⁠ Boots: @sorelfootwear⁠ Sled: @canadiantire - where else?!

Baby Gates For A Modern Home

If you’ve read any of my other blog posts about having a baby in our home, you’ll know that I don’t want my home to look like a daycare I knew as soon as I saw the Lascal KiddyGuard Avant Retractable Baby Safety Gates that these were the gates for our home. My BIL and his wife have a stunning Modern-Scandi style home with a little one and a new puppy and these are the gates that they have installed. I know that a baby gate can only have a certain degree of style, but I didn’t want something that looked like cheap plastic or like it was from the 1990s.

Since my own kitchen is currently in the stages of being reassembled, I figured i'd feature this lovely show home kitchen to inspire you until I reveal mine! ⁠Have you been watching it all unfold on my stories?⁠ Today is quartz counter install day with @granite.brothers.yyc!!⁠ ⁠ It feels weird to share a kitchen that is a little bit opposite to what I'm doing to my own - I've got dark cabinetry that I'm pairing with white counters! ⁠ ⁠ The sconces on either side of the stone-clad hood are kind of a neat touch. It's something I'd never considered doing, and they add a lot of ambiance on darker days. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ 🏠: @wolfcustomhomes Watermark Show Home

Speedy Sourdough: Homemade Sourdough Without a Starter

Homemade sourdough bread seems to be all the rage these days, but finding or creating a starter can be really tedious, and to be honest, ain’t nobody got time for that! I can’t be bothered to remember to feed and stir a starter as many times as it requires and if I want sourdough bread, I probably want it today (not a week from now). Here are the simple steps to making homemade sourdough bread without a starter: Cover your dough and leave to rise/proof in a warm/room temperature place or proofing drawer for 2 hours. Line a clean, dry bowl with parchment paper and put the dough on parchment paper, cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for another 1 hour.

Happy Friday, Sparklers! It's gonna be a big dusty weekend over here of kitchen demo and some drywall work! Any fun (and less messy) weekend plans at your house?⁠ ⁠ I've been getting asked where I find all of my home inspo lately. The truth is I still get a lot of it from magazines like this one, show homes, HGTV and sometimes just inside my own head. I of course follow IG accounts that inspire me, too. ⁠ ⁠ Do you have any fave home accounts or magazines? Tag them below! I'm always looking for extra places to look! ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ Sofa: @article #OurArticle⁠ Sweater: @lewistonlabel

A Holiday Getaway at Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff, Canada

Having some space to move around when traveling as a family is ideal and the newly renovated King Suites at Buffalo Mountain Lodge are perfect for this! One of the major changes in Buffalo Mountain Lodge’s King Suites are the newly renovated bathrooms. Buffalo Mountain Lodge offers many on-site amenities including a newly renovated hot tub area. If you feel like venturing a little further, Lake Louise, Lake Minnewanka, Two Jack Lake, Bow Falls and other places to experience the fresh air and beautiful scenery are only a short drive away, too.

It's International Sweatpants Day today! ✨ Although that's basically the case every day in our house, today it's an official thing! 🥳 We're celebrating in style, with our faves from @roots of course! ⁠ ⁠ I've been asked a ton lately about which ones we love. My faves are the Slim Cuff and Original and Van's faves are the Park Slim Joggers - he lives in them! Layla just loves anything snuggly and soft! 🥰⁠ ⁠ If you want to know which are right for you, they've got a Fit Guide that you can check out, too! ❤️⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #InternationalSweatpantsDay #RootsCanada #Gifted #TrueComfort #polartec #PolartecxRoots

Gifts For Guys: Gift Ideas For The Men In Your Life

know if it’s that when men see something they want, they just buy it for themselves or that they only want the “practical” things but those reasons right there are why I like to share a selection of gifts for the guys in your life! They offer items like quality dress socks that come in fun patterns without being tacky, gorgeous ties and a selection of other men’s accessories. I find that decanters are gorgeous on a bar cart or in a home bar and now you can find decanters that aren’t too “froofy” or elaborate but rather a more classic and modern, clean-lined version.

I've gotten a lot of messages like "I totally forgot you were pregnant because you never talk about it" which I guess is kind of true. So let's talk about it! ⁠✨ Ask me anything in the comments below!!!⁠ ⁠ Here's a few things to get you started...⁠ ⁠ ✨ ICYMI I'm having another girl and they will be 16 months apart. I'm almost 31 weeks pregnant 🙈⁠ ⁠ ✨ I'm due mid-end of March which gives me a little under 2 months to get my sh*t together (which I am in the process of trying to do). Kitchen reno, Nursery, I'm sure a few other things, too...⁠ ⁠ ✨ My pregnancies have been fairly similar, although I'm carrying a little lower this time which is a bit tiring/heavy. It does mean that I haven't needed to buy shares in Tums!⁠ 🤣⁠ ⁠ ✨ I feel like I've left more to the last minute this time than I did with Layla (i.e. nursery, specifically). I'm finding it harder to make nursery design decisions this time but I think I've finally got it figured out!🤞⁠ ⁠ ✨ I'm an only child so the idea of having 2 kiddos is interesting to me. I'm excited for them to be so close in age and see what dynamic adding another person to our family will bring. ⁠ ⁠ ✨ I don't know if we'll do a babymoon this time. Thoughts? Things are a little harder with restrictions but I'm wondering if we should just forge ahead! ⁠ ⁠ ✨When I was pregnant with Layla we embarked on our Pantry, Mud Room, Laundry Room renovation, renovated a main bath in our home and installed new storage in our garage so renos while pregnant are just what we do I guess! ⁠ ⁠ Credits:⁠ Pearls @parisjewellers⁠ Cardigan @jcrewfactory @jcrew⁠ Skirt @chicwish

⁠How do you feel about black walls? I personally LOVE them if the other features in the space are right. ⁠I think they can be moody, luxe and elegant. ⁠ ⁠ My favorite places to use deep moody hues like this one are a powder room or a feature wall, but I'm kind of loving this hidden little office nook. The white oak floors and ample natural light don't make this space feel like a cave but rather classic and inspired! ⁠ ⁠ I'm also loving the way the marble tables and caramel saddle leather furniture fit so nicely in this little hidden nook!⁠ ⁠ ⁠ 🏠: @wolfcustomhomes Watermark Show Home
