Mini Home Decor Haul- Paris theme!

Hi everyone!

Below are a few pieces I picked up to decorate my bedroom. Right now my theme is Paris so don’t mind all the references!

“Paris is always a good idea” Mug from Chapters. $9.99. Can also be found on the indigo website. I’ve been wanting this mug for quite sometime but it was always sold out. Once it was back in stock, I had to snatch it up.

Silver Eiffel Tower from Walmart. $9.99 I’ve been looking for the perfect Eiffel tour for months. I wanted a white one originally but when I came across this one, I fell in love.

resh Water Lily Candle from Chapters for $2.50. I found this candle in the sales section after waiting for months. I refused to pay $10 for it. The good thing about Chapters is that their items go on sale very often. I’m glad I waited. The scent is absolutely refreshing!

I’m also in love with the glass jar that it comes in. It fits perfectly on my dresser and looks beautiful.

~Perfume Collection~

Hello!

My Instagram followers kindly asked me to write a post on my perfume collection. My collection has grown over the years, but it didn’t really begin until I quit my last job. At my previous job we were not allowed to wear perfume due to allergies. Now that I work from home, I can indulge in these delicious scents! Lastly, I tend to alternate scents through out the year, during the fall/winter seasons, I like to wear D&G and Chanel and in the spring/summer time, I tend to wear Fame and Daisy. is that weird? Nope!

IMG_4556
Fame by Lady Gaga. I’m really in love with this scent. The only downside is that it wears off really easily.  Besides that, the scent is breathtaking,! I bought this perfume online for $30 I believe.

IMG_4557
Chance by Chanel. This is definitely in my top 3 favourite perfume list. I usually wear this perfume when I know I’m going to be out for a long time. This scent lasts throughout the whole day/evening. The scent is very sophisticated, as cheesy as it sounds, I feel very confident when I wear it. Girl power!

IMG_4558
Daisy by Marc Jacobs. How cute is the bottle? When I first smelled this scent, I fell in love with it. It’s feminine and playful, and if you love floral scents, this is perfect for you! $85 at Sephora.

IMG_4559
Rose the one, by Dolce & Gabbana. This perfume is a gift from my sister and lovely addition to my collection. Also can be found at Sephora and most department stores.

IMG_4560
Last but not least, Lola by Marc Jacobs. This is the first perfume I ever purchased. It came in a pack with  hand lotion and roller. I believe I purchased this pack at Winners for $40. It was a great deal!. This perfume is one of my favourites, every time i spray it, it brings back memories from my teen years. Absolutely love it.

Birthday Festivities: Montreal part 1

My wonderful boyfriend decided to take me to Montreal for my 27th birthday. I’ve always wanted to visit Montreal so when he told me, I was super excited. 7 hours later, we arrived at our destination, we stayed at a air B&B which was inexpensive and much nicer than we anticipated. We ended up spending 3 nights there, below are some pictures I took along the way

Cheers to the weekend!

Another beautiful day, and what goes hand in hand with a beautiful day? Patio season! For today’s outing we went to Mothers, a restaurant that opened up in May. Since we have been to pretty much every restaurant in our area AND it was a beautiful day, we decided to check out their patio. Quick review, the food was delicious, the service was incredible and I highly recommend it!

DYI Thursdays: Fun and easy wall decor!

Hi everyone!

Lately I have been crafting a lot. Today I want to show you a canvas that I am planning to hang up in my room. It was really easy to make. There are 3 steps: Tape it, paint it and peal it!

20140605-172117-62477433.jpg

What do you need?

A canvas of your choice. This is the one I used, it cost $3 at my local dollar store. You also need paint, I ended up using paint that I had left over from my previous project.

20140605-182003-66003512.jpg

First step: Tape it. You can do this however you want, I did not plan where I was going to place mine ahead of time.

20140605-171654-62214135.jpg

Second step: Paint it. Paint  within the lines of the tape, make sure to press the tape down firmly or the paint will bleed through.

Thirst step: Peal it and voila!

20140605-171655-62215005.jpg

And that’t it! It’s a simple project to work on. A couple suggestions, let the paint dry before you add your second coat. I also recommend paint sealer so the paint doesn’t bleed through, I did not use any therefore I had to re-do some of the shapes that bled through.  That’s it for todays DIY, I hope you enjoyed it, if you end up trying it out, let me know how it turned out!  Thanks for stopping by!

DIY Thursdays: De-potting candle jars

Hi everyone!

For today’s DIY, I am going to write about how I depot my candles. There are two ways you can do this, the first way is what I did and the second way is by running the jar under hot water. I’ll explain both, but first, let me show you how I de-pot my jars by freezing them. There aren’t many steps involved. I stuck the candle you see below in my freezer over night.

20140528-201521-72921992.jpgI then took a knife and carved around the edges, once I did that, I put the jar upside down and the wax came out.

20140528-201522-72922231.jpgOnce I got rid of the wax, I cleaned the jar with warm water and used a cloth to get rid of the residue. I also ran the bottom of the jar under hot water to get rid of the sticker.

What do I do with my empty jars?

Since I love nail polish, I store my go to nail polishes in one of my jars. I also like to store bracelets and necklaces for decoration. The great thing about this project is that you can customize it however you like.

20140528-201522-72922723.jpg
Besides jewellery and nail polish, I tend to reach for my cotton balls a lot when removing makeup. This is a great way to store your cotton balls. Since these jars don’t take up too much space, I leave one in my bathroom for convenience.  If you guys want to see different ways to decorate jars, leave them in the comments below and I will make a post on it!

20140528-201522-72922980.jpg

I mentioned earlier that there is a second way to de-potting your candle jars. If you don’t want to put it in the freezer all you have to do is run it under warm water for about half an hour. It depends on how long the it takes the wax to loosen up. Once  the wax loosens, take a knife to carve out the edges and pop the wax out. Clean the jar with warm water and a cloth.

Both ways work fine, I found putting the jar in the freezer caused less mess when removing the wax. That’s all for today, let me know if you found this DIY helpful!

Every Thursday I’m going to try and post a DIY, I’m hoping to make this a regular thing since I love to craft!

Another day at the park :)

The world that she lives in is just magical, one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.

Another beautiful day, of course I went on a photo session and made my wonderful boyfriend come along.  We did get the chance to walk around and enjoy the scenery before taking all these pictures.
Once again, I used my iphone 5s camera and none of these photos have been edited.
QOTD: What is your favourite thing to do on a beautiful summer day?
