vintage mason jars diy

If you’re like me, you probably love the beautiful colours of vintage glass. I’m not a big antiques collector, but I do happen to love old mason jars. So simple, yet so beautiful. Especially the ones that have gorgeous blue and green tones! However, they can be pricey or hard to find.

I don’t know about you, but cleaning the bathroom is my least favourite chore. It’s a job I need to constantly stay on top of and no matter how diligent I am, it always seems to need work. (The biggest drag is my dark hair on my white tile floors. Ew.) My best tip for keeping my bathroom clean is to wipe the shower down after every use. I keep a squeegee on the ledge in my shower and remove all the excess water after every shower, then do a quick wipe with a towel. This not only keeps the shower looking good until cleaning day, it’s a small investment of my time that will keep the grout in the shower clean in the long run. I’ve got small subway tiles in my shower so there’s lots of grout that cannot be ignored. Wiping the shower down daily prevents the grout from becoming grimy.

wine and cheese at cafe taste

I often find it difficult to choose a place to eat or grab a drink. Not because there’s nowhere to go, but because Toronto has SO many options it’s hard to pick just one!

I love discovering new places and my latest adventure was to Cafe Taste.
