As a vegan, it can be be tough trying to monitor the ingredients in everything you buy. Sure, you don’t have to worry too much about your food when you make all your meals fresh, but what about your drinks? Because as weird as it might seem, your favourite drink might have more than just alcohol in it! Brewmasters, winemakers, and distillers often include animal ingredients in their products directly, or use them in the processing and filtration. Additionally, dairy products are often added to the final recipe—and you won’t find any of these ingredients on the label!
There’s nothing I love more than crawling into crisp, cool, sheets after a long summer day. And summer is the perfect time to break out the pretty floral prints. I use white bedding year round, since it’s the ideal canvas for bed styling to suit your mood, allowing you to switch up your throw pillows and blankets to change the look whenever you want. I typically prefer the Scandinavian, black and white aesthetic, but nothing says summer like floral prints (and my new favourite, palm print!)
With inspiration from Parachute Home, I have put together 2 ways to try summer bed styling, including lightweight summer bedding, summer decor, and tips on how to cool down and unwind on those hot summer nights.
I recently received two eco-friendly rug pads from the lovely people over at Rug Pad USA in exchange for writing a review on See, Love, Covet—and I love them! Rug pads are a functional item that are often an afterthought, but they’re a secret weapon when it comes to decorating. If you’re taking the time to pick out the perfect rug, then it is important that you take the time to pick out the perfect rug pad to keep it in place! With Rug Pad USA, they make picking out the perfect rug pad easy, and best of all they’re eco-friendly, meaning their products are made with chemical-free materials. So their rug pads are good for you, and your home!

This past Friday I celebrated my 25th birthday, and got to enjoy a wonderful vegan birthday cake that my sister made for me. Adapted from This Rawsome Vegan Life, she made a stunning, raw, vegan strawberry “cheesecake” with a dark chocolate ganache drip (you can grab the recipe here).
Sorry for the delayed post my friends! I’ve been absolutely swamped with freelance work and the job search, since leaving my former design gig at a local firm. And I just got back from a lovely trip to Toronto to see Lana Del Rey in concert, and catching up with old friends. But now that my mini vacation is over, it’s time to put my nose to the grindstone with blogging and portfolio updates.
Aside from all the changes happening in my professional life, I am about to cross an important milestone—my 25th birthday! Although my birthday is not until the 22nd, with all my my friends and family buzzing in my ear asking me what I want for my birthday, I’ve decided to make another round up of some of my favourite things that I am coveting this month (most of all Emily Shuman’s new book, Cupcakes & Cashmere at Home!)
So here is my birthday wishlist, which will hopefully serve as inspiration for gift ideas for her—whether it be gift ideas for your girlfriend, best friend, sister, mother, or any other important women in your life.
Lately everyone is going crazy for Sarah Hyland’s style on Good Day New York back in early May. She was the picture of perfect spring style in an ASOS knitted crop top with an open back detail and an A-Line skirt by Boden, with a beautiful floral print. She topped off the look with navy statement heels, and a black Lady Dior purse.

First off, I am sorry for the delayed post from last week — I have been super busy filing my taxes, and juggling my full time graphic design job with my freelance gig, all while getting ready for my trip to Mexico next Monday! In speaking of Mexico, I’ve been planning my vacation wardrobe for my 7-day trip, and with inspiration from the insanely gifted Anuschka from Into Mind, I have put together my dream capsule holiday wardrobe. Using her formula as a template, I have outlined a 7-day wardrobe using 3 shirts, 2 bottoms, one dress, and 2 pairs of shoes.
I love Jessica Alba’s style, especially this bold, cheetah print number that she wore while running errands in Santa Monica. I love the simplicity of this ensemble, which is as effortless as throwing a boxy, black tuxedo blazer over a leopard print dress. And the addition of semi-opaque black tights makes this a great transitional outfit as we move into spring.
