this product belongs on every book lover’s wish list

I consider myself an avid reader. Whether I’m invested in a novel on my daily commute to work or find myself flipping through a magazine come Sunday morning, words are always present. It goes without saying then, that losing your place on a page (and proceeding to skim over the same sentence at least five times) doesn’t exactly make for a thrilling read. Good news: I’ve come across a product that will solve this book burden forever more.

trim your tree with these adorable ornaments

Growing up my family tree (real, never fake!) was quite a mishmash of decorations, decorated with pretty much every ornament my brother and I made as children, mixed with gorgeous glass ornaments my mom collected over the years. It was a little bit glam (stunning pink glass bulbs are still my fav!) and a little bit not-so-glam (picture popsicle stick reindeer and pinecone/sparkle grade 2 masterpieces). These days I’ve been starting to collect ornaments for my own tree and am always on the hunt for some whimsical pieces. I’ve picked up vintage glass bulbs from markets over the years but continue my hunt for those ‘cute’ additions – reminiscent of my younger years, but with less craft glue involved! Here are some of my fav. picks.

decor vs. fashion: girly pink bows

Have you seen the Kate Spade New York for GapKids collection? The limited edition pieces are bright, pretty and ideal for the upcoming holidays. I adore the girly flourishes like bows, gold glitter and shiny graphic letters, and was super-excited to spot a coordinating toss cushion from The Land of Nod.

So, which would you choose for party season: a toss cushion with a pink bow or a crossbody bag?

easy ideas for a sparkling wine and fondue holiday party

When it comes to holiday parties, I veer toward the approach that simpler = better. Parties that take minimal effort to pull together not only leave the host feeling relaxed, but guests, too. This year, I’d like to invite my friends over for a sparkling wine and fondue party. Inspired by a Jackson-Triggs après ski party that I attended, here are four easy steps (and two recipes).

fun etsy find

I was recently trolling photographer Paul Costello’s website and found these fun quotable banners/art prints from Jimmy Marble. I love the sayings and the way the typography is done. Christmas is coming and this is a great gift for the person who has everything or wants a little sass on their walls! My favourite has a profanity in it so I didn’t think it would be appropriate to show here, but check out his website!

take a look inside reese witherspoon’s $14 million dollar home

If you loved getting a glimpse inside Sarah Jessica Parker’s New York brownstone, then you won’t be disappointed by Academy Award winner, Reese Witherspoon’s Spanish-style estate in Los Angeles. As part of Vogue.com’s 73 Questions web series, Reese answers rapid-fire questions while showing off her beautifully decorated 6,956-square-foot Brentwood home. From the moment she opens the large wrought iron front door, you know it’s going to be good.

removable wallpaper for renters

I rent my Toronto apartment, so I’ve never considered putting up wallpaper. But these removable wallpaper tiles from Hygge & West are amazing – and WAY less of a commitment. Wouldn’t the wallpaper be lovely in a powder room or entryway wall?

colour of the year – benjamin moore

I recently went to a media event for Benjamin Moore‘s new colour line for 2015. Not only did they launch a collection of colours, but they also picked a colour of the year – no pressure there icon wink colour of the year   benjamin moore I’m not one to dabble in colour – grey to me is a colour, but I was throughly surprised with the new palette and actually thought that I might be able to incorporate colour into my own, yes my own house!! My favourite colour was the colour of the year – Gilford Green HC-116 – part of their historic collection. Here are some images of it incorporated into rooms.
