I have a slight obsession with sun glasses right now… I want them all! And I’m feeling the need to pick up a new pair after an incident a few weeks back. My favourite glasses slipped off my head and into the can at Starbucks…. Blast! Plus, it’s sunny outside! And what better reason is there than that?
Here are my top picks for this summer…
What sunnies will you be wearing this summer?
I’m baaaack… Not to assume I’ve been missed but if you haven’t noticed, it’s been a while!! A lot has happened since my last post. Biggest news of all, I have left my job to move to beautiful British Columbia so the kids and I can be with the hubs. YAY! Although the weather out here is cray ray, I love being out here on the West coast… it’s so nice being close to the mountains and the fresh ocean air and most of all so amazing having our family together again. I miss everyone back home, but I know we will be back in Ottawa eventually. In other news, our daughter turned 4… YAY! I turned 30… BOOOO! My sis found out she is having another girl (due in a few weeks)… YAY! I got my first tattoo… YAY! And so much more to be thankful for…

So my sister and I were talking rugs the other day… she wants a new one for her living room to make it a comfortable place to gather since they don’t often use the space but would like to start. So, I suggested this Moroccan Shag rug… similar to the beautiful but expensive Beni Ourain rugs but very affordable. And guess what? IT’S 75% OFF TODAY!!!! Let’s do this, sis.

These Beni Ourain rugs can cost upwards of $5000!! I don’t know about you but that ain’t in my price range… get the Moroccan Shag for less than $350 while the sale is on!!

Her interiors always stand out but I am the biggest fan of her home collection line.
Are you going to add Rhapsody to your Christmas wish list?
I am really slacking on here, aren’t I? Sometimes life can get so busy it’s hard to find a minute. And last week was the worst! All of us took a turn with the flu and it was nasty!! Now that fall is upon us, I’m hoping I’ll have more time to work on the blog:)
Anywho… here are some amazeballs pics of rooms decorated by Pal + Smith. I love their use of textures, colours and prints.
Oh and Pal+Smith has a great collection of furniture – check it out here. I want this…
I think Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine’s Hollywood home is my favourite celebrity style so far! I love the classy bachelor pad look and I love all the retro pieces. And holy moly, look at that view!!

Pretty awesome, eh?
Wow, it’s been 2 weeks since I last posted… I am getting pretty lazy over here! Actually it’s hard to find the time some days/weeks.
Here’s yet another fabulous interior featured on Vogue – the home of Camilla Freeman-Topper, the woman behind fashion label Camilla and Marc. So girly with hints of edge and I love the pops of neon here and there!
