Ever since we signed our lease back in March, I have been dreaming about this day! I have had so many ideas on how I want to fill my massive bedroom, and it feels amazing that all of my ideas have come to fruition! I finally have my DIY Headboard and my beautiful fashion illustrations up on the wall! I wanted to share the whole process of putting it together, and made a little video for you to watch! Let me know what you think!
When I was in residence, my friends and I used to get together to make costumes for parties and decorations for our dorm rooms. We called these happy gatherings “Crafternoons” and the name still lives on two years later! My roommates and I have been talking about bringing more plants into the house for a while now, and we finally went out and bought some last weekend. I had such a lovely time drinking tea and potting these plants with my friends. I believe we managed to put at least one plant in every room, and it really brightened the place up!
The end of the summer has come and gone. I’m just barely a week into classes and my free time is already being swallowed up by work and assignments. Summer really was too good to be true. However, there were so many high points this summer that I really cannot be too sad that it is over.
I have to say that my favourite part of the whole summer was our trip to the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton. I was blown away by how unbelievably stunning it was.. The entire trip was a series of mind blowing views and many, many stops along the way.
I am running on a bit of an adrenalin rush because I uploaded my first YouTube video last night! As I mentioned in the video, I wanted to include more information about prices and where I bought things here on my blog. I hope that this little list will help you with your own shopping!
I am very excited to announce that I am starting a YouTube channel! I was hoping to use this blog to showcase my decorating process for my new house, but I decided that I wanted do more than just write about it. My new channel will feature styling and organization videos, DIY projects, and tips and tricks about styling on a student budget!
It seems like this is the summer of driving to and from Halifax. I got back from my latest trip to Halifax last week, and only have about a week before I am going back again! If that wasn’t enough, after two weeks in Halifax, we are flying back to Toronto for Adam’s National Lawn Bowling tournament for a week and driving back to Halifax with some friends. Can I just lay it out there and say that two trips there and back to Halifax equals 7,220km or 68 hours of driving…. All I can say is thank god for all the awesome country music out in the world right now, because I don’t know what I would do without hours and hours of music to listen to!
I have to say, I love watching 50 facts videos on YouTube. There are so many unique talents and hobbies out there, and it is always inspiring to hear about them. Everyone has little quirks that makes them unique.. and personally I am always curious to learn new things. I hope that this quick list of things will help you learn something new about me!
While I was staying with my Grandparents a few weekends ago, they brought out this gorgeous old Smith-Corona typewriter that belonged to my Great-Grandfather John.
Sometimes I feel like I’m always waiting for something to happen. Whether it’s something as small as waiting for the weekend, or as big as waiting to pack my bags and move into my next temporary home; I never quite feel like I’m in the present.
