A casual trip to Chapters, nbd…. Except when I go with the intentions of a good book + find myself perusing through their home collection section for an hour! Chapters – why do you do this to me? Just when I think, okay I’m safe – there’s nothing to buy here but books! I am sadly mistaken by beautiful prints by the oh so inspiring + talented Stephanie Sterjovski, cheerful tea cups or bright pretty stationery from my favorite Rifle Paper Co. .. geez you can’t even escape a good statement necklace! Whoever is doing the buying over at Chapters is doing their job because by the time Christmas rolls around I’m going to have quite the list for Santa.
On a frosty Monday morning, there is one place in particular I’d rather be. In bed! So since I’m still day dreaming of my warm, cozy covers I figured it would only be natural to share some of my favorite spaces to catch a wink.
With less than a week to go until Hallow’s Eve is upon us, it’s time to start planning the perfect party! (I’ll take any excuse). I’ve shared some really fun, creative ways to entertain with Halloween in mind.
Zara has announced their launch into a Home Line Collection (Yipee!). I have to tell you, I am a Zara-lover, often adding + admiring pieces from their clothing line regularly so I am beyond thrilled to see that they have made the leap into the home division (to include us in North America).
The line covers all your home needs, offering everything from bedding to stemware to chic accents + accessories.
While my first impression of the site is mediocre, my personal opinion being that they could have styled their lookbook more effectively to create more of a unified ‘Zara-esq’ impression of the brand online – the photos & styling done on the Zara Home website doesn’t scream as loud as the voice of potential inside me. However, my opinions are my own & I have every faith that the line will be a huge success + the pieces themselves will live up to the hype when adopted into our own homes.

As much as I love classic white, modern interiors I also have a profound love for rustic pieces that bring a unique charm + feel to a space. Much like my life, I admire + often adore high-end labels + glamorous style + decor. On the other hand I love the gifts that nature provides, the beauty of the outdoors, often spending my down-time on Vancouver Island basking in the beauty + simplicity of the ocean, trees, sun + sky. Blending these two worlds is completely unique to me, an imprint of my own personality.
