[Celebration] — Jayden’s 5th Birthday Part 1

Munchkin#1 had an early mini birthday celebration with the relatives on February 20th, 2017. Usually we would have them over after his actual birthday party after the kids’ leave. But since it was also Family Day – we decided why not have a lunch and have our kids bond with their relatives right?

Nothing much – I made a small lunch, catch up, sang Happy Birthday, and played monopoly!

We had so much fun playing monopoly with the relatives. It was actually our first time playing together! We had quite a good laugh and glad everyone enjoyed it! Hubby and I ended up winning the game by luck. This game requires a lot of luck!

After a 2-3 hour game of monopoly – we headed for a very early dinner. It was such a fun day and I think we should have it much more often! Both our boys behaved very well. Munchkin#1 got to spend quality time with Great Grandma when we were busy playing.

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!

[Haul] — Indigo Home Valentine’s Day Haul

Here’s a little pink Valentine’s splurge! It’s very hard finding ‘pink’ quality things for my home – so when I saw these pieces at Chapters/Indigo – I waited for the after Valentine’s sale. Why pay full price when you know exactly it will go on sale the next day right? I ordered everything online with free shipping. From what I remember – after $49 – its free shipping.

I picked up 2 of these ‘LOVE’ pink jewelry travel. Intended for jewelry but I am using it in the bathroom & my kitchen. Am I weird? It works though!

Picked up 2 of these oversized teacups because its about time to get rid of the red large mugs I have. I always wanted to get pink cups but its nowhere to be found. I did end up returning these though. One being – it was broken & the other one had a mark on it. They were originally $18.00 and mark down to $9.00. Which makes it a $50%off.

Although I like the teacup design above – I realized I love these more. These only had a 25%off at $10.50 each. I still picked up four of them. I couldn’t help it. Its just way too cute. I think if it had a teapot to match it – I probably get that too.

Last but not least – I got this pink ‘Love Bug’ jewelry tray at 62%off. So $20.00 went down to $7.50! What a steal right? I’m debating if I should get a few more but I’ll need to figure out where to put it first.

Here is my little splurge. Love everything I picked up! I’m such a ‘pink’ kind of girl and I cannot help it when I see something ‘pink’. Pink makes my home warm and loving. Stay tune because of these purchases – I ended up picking up a set of pink dishes at Ikea too. I’ll share that soon! Are you a lover of pink stuff?

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Home] — Christmas 2016 Decorations

It’s the most wonderful of the year! Christmas is the best holiday to decorate for because everything’s so sparkly and cute! Plus I can leave them up for 2 whole months!

Our new set of Christmas stockings from MerryStockings.Com

It’s the most wonderful of the year! Christmas is the best holiday to decorate for because everything’s so sparkly and cute! Plus I can leave them up for 2 whole months!

Got this new glittery banner at Dollarama

I love decorating! Most importantly my son loves looking at all these festive decorations too. It lights up his face when he sees it. I love watching him learn all the Christmas-ty stuff!

Favor boxes filled with candies, 2 new nutcrackers, and a silver Christmas tree from dollarama

I didn’t get a lot of new stuff this year. Every year I get a few pieces of new decors to add into my collection and that’s it. My theme this year is red, green, and silver. I decided to take a break from my Rilakkuma bears and pink ornaments. Just wanted to change it up.

Here’s how our Christmas tree looks like this year – it has silver cross’s on it too but you can’t really see it on the picture. I have box on each of my doors – that’s about 6 bows total. I had to get 4 extra this year because of course everything’s got to match in my world right? 😉

Yes – I did decorate my switches by putting these glittery shapes on each set of switches. There’s snowman and Christmas trees as well. I love decorating! I think next year I can get my 5 year old to help with the tree decorating. He’ll be old enough but that’s it he wants to help though. Haha.

I take photos of my yearly decoration because I’ll know what I have and what I’ll be using for the year. When do you usually decorate for Christmas? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more daily updates – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for stopping by!!!

[Haul] — Winners HomeSense Haul • Affordable Prices

g0170

A bit late for this blog post – just found these photos on my album on Facebook – so had to share. The outfit on the left was for my son’s Halloween outfit. We bought it quite early. Picked up 7 photo albums, kitchen spoon, rain boots, kitchen towels, and a organization basket. All were at amazing prices. When you visit Winners HomeSense daily – you can sure go bankrupt because they have new stuff daily.

g0171

Here’s a close up – I visited 3 different Winners HomeSense to find 7 photo albums. These photo albums are for my kids photos. I need to find a couple more but so far out of luck right now. Do you like shopping at Winners HomeSense? Stay tune for more daily updates – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time. Thanks for dropping by!

[Home] — Ikea Photo Frames Wall Collage • DIY Project

g0097

Been wanting to put up a collage of photos on this wall for quite sometime now. Never really had the time to think about it before till now. Before doing anything – I had to draw out what I want to put up and how I want it. Everything I do has a meaning to it and keep reading – you’ll understand why I did what I did. I’m quite proud of what I did and I love it! This wall is in front of my dining table.

g0098

I put up these four frames first – these four frames will have my kids birthday pictures from 1 year old to 6 year old. They each will have 6 photos. It wasn’t easy putting these frames up – so much planning – so much measuring too. I’m very OCD when things are off – but now it’s perfect!

g0099

Almost complete! Okay – so the bottom right where there is 4 little frames – those are first Christmases of both my kids and their baptism. You see the 2 empty ones – its because Cayden hasn’t experience his first Christmas & baptism yet. The left & right columns are for vacations that we go to. When the rooms are running out – we can add 2-3 more columns on each side (left and right).

g0100

Completion! Yes – finally done after hours.. I don’t even know how many hours. The top left has 2 large photo frames – a picture of us on our wedding day & our first family picture. I had to visit Ikea once more to complete this wall. It’s not really complete because we can always add extra frames on the left and right side. But overall – it’ll just be vacation pictures and birthday pictures we’ll be adding. My empty wall feels so different now with these frames on it! Feels more complete! I call this my “Wall of Love”. I LOVE IT! I’m so blessed to wake up to all these wonderful memories created every day! Life is such a blessing! Thanks for dropping by – stay tune for more updates – this blog is updated regularly!

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Organization] — My New Beauty Shelf

e289 e290

Decided to get this bathroom organizing shelf for my beauty care and jewelry display. It took me awhile to decide what I wanted next to my vanity table.

Since this shelf was having a sale at $20 off – I decided to get it. I like the silver bar and clear glass. The price was $47.99+tax.

Not a huge shelf but this will do for now. Got my jewelry box on the top shelf. Lip sticks and display boxes on the second layer. The last two layers I stored all my beauty masks.

This looks much more tidy and organized now. I’m thinking of purchasing a second shelf when it goes on sale again. I still have quite a lot of makeup products to store and display. How do you like my organization? I love it! Stay tune for my hauls and reviews – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Home] — Halloween Home 2016 Decorations

g0076 g0077

Last year we were renting a small condo unit – so I missed out on decorating last Halloween. Here it is – to our new place and my first time putting up Halloween decorations up. I miss decorating! I cannot wait till Halloween is over than I can put up my Christmas tree and lots of festive decorations. Not a lot of Halloween decors this year – I will be purchasing a lot more for next year. So far – it’s not too bad right?

g0078 g0080

This year we’ll be hosting a Halloween party for kids and trick or treating too. Hopefully the weather cooperates! Ever since 2012 – the weather was NOT good – it rained every year! Plus its freezing every year too. I have all the costumes ready for my kids since last month. I like to plan ahead to avoid any unnecessary stress! Plus if you don’t buy the costumes early – there’s not much choices after.

g0081

That’s all the home decors I’m putting up this year – there a few I didn’t take pictures of. I’ll be making loot bags for the kids at the party & loot bags for my son’s classmates soon – look out for that post! Have you decorated your home? Ready for Halloween? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more daily updates – see you soon! Happy early Halloween to you all!

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[Home] — Kids Minion Bedroom Theme

f076

Here’s a little peak in my son’s bedroom. It’s not completely finish yet. I still want to add two Ikea wall shelves above the TV to display picture frames and his Air Jordan shoes collection.

I know most find it ridiculous to put a TV in a 4 year old bedroom. No – the TV is not plugged in or used. We just have an extra TV and have nowhere to put it. We don’t plan on letting him use the TV till he’s old enough. Which I’m not sure when is that. 5-8 years later?

f074

We decided on the Minion theme because it was just easier to find Minion stuff instead of Thomas the Train decors. Minions stuff is a bit cheaper than Thomas.

I ordered these Minion stickers on Aliexpress for less than $2.00CAD. Which was perfect! My son loves them.

We purchased the Minion set of beddings for him for last Christmas. From what I remember – it was about $100-$120 for the entire set.

f075

These Minion dolls were all purchased second hand. From what I remember they were $5 a piece. What a steal right? They were in excellent condition as well!

These Ikea shelves are very spacious – stored a lot of things from clothes, shoes, extra bedding, extra pillows, toys, stuff toys, and more. The black boxes were from Ikea as well.

Last but not least – this Ikea shelf next to his bed side is mainly for books.

We will be sticking to this Minion theme till one day he tells us he wants a change. Hopefully it will be for a long while. He’s not too picky about things like decorating and matchy matchy things like this. Stay tune for more daily reviews & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Home] — My Little Office Nook

f028

My little office nook area is located in a little area in my living room. Since we only have 3 bedrooms in my home – there’s no room for an actual office. Got to make do on whatever space there is left right? No complain at all because to be honest – even if we had a room for an office – we are barely in it. I like sitting on the couch with my laptop.

f029f031f030

Anyways – not much in my little office. Just a laser printer, paper shredder, some supplies, and my laptop. Since I do everything on my phone now – laptop is only been use even less these days. Only to design, edit photos, and edit blog posts. That’s really it. The convenience of Smartphone’s! Even typing on a Smartphone is faster and easier. That’s really it for my little office nook.

[Home] — Ikea TV Entertainment Shelf & Organization

f016

Here sharing my living room entertainment shelf slash storage slash organization with you all. This is actually three separate shelves that I put together. They are all from Ikea from I believe the Billy’s collection.

f017

By the way – this is how my rug/floor in front of the entertainment shelf looks like in a daily. Welcome to parenthood! Lol.

f018

Starting from the left top shelf. A very sentimental area for us – displays most of our wedding memories. Envelope box, wedding gold pens, base of our wedding cake, ring box, wedding jewelry box, champagne glasses, 2 hair tiara pieces, and my flower bouquet. I love how everything fits neatly.

f019

Next below is my Rilakkuma bear collection. It’s kind of stuffed up but they are still cute! Love them!

f020

Next below is just some of the books I read and a family photo frame. Plus a Precious Moment jewelry box.

f021

The two bottom shelves are just photo albums. Yes – we have a lot if photo albums. Half of them are empty for us to create more memories.

f022

On to the right top shelf. Our alcohol collection. Well not really a collection – it’s where we store our alcohols – so the Munchkin can’t reach it. The tiny bottles were from our first vacation from 2009 May – we bought them on a cruise.

f023

Next below is our Mickey Mouse collection. We collected these Mickey Mouse’s during our dating years. On the right is a vase full of sea shells. Some we picked from the beach and some we bought. All are from our first vacation back in May 2009. Oh and in the middle is a musical globe I got two Christmases ago (December 2014) from a friend.

f024

Next below is a music system we own for a few years now. Next to it is a few Thomas the Train DVDs my son loves!

f025

Bottom shelves are stored with a vintage Nintendo system, DVDs, video games, and more photo albums. Photo albums on the right are from Engagement shoot, Bachelorette and Wedding day.

f026

Middle shelf is mainly DVDs. Behind the two Rilakkuma bears are DVDs. We have an crazy amount of DVDs but we do re-watch it sometimes when there’s nothing to watch.

I think that sums up my organization on this post. I like how everything has its own area. No clutter or mess! Hope you enjoy this post – stay tune for more home organization and daily hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by! 

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

f139

Here’s an updated nursery tour for you all! Yes finally complete and I love how everything went. It wasn’t hard setting up his nursery – just a lot of organization.

f140

Beddings and wall sticker is all Winnie the Pooh too. Cute aren’t they?

f141 f142

Look at all these pooh bears! They belong to me when I was a child/teen. My little collection.

f143

I didn’t know what to do with all the ultrasound photos we surprised our family and friends with – so I decided to make a collage instead of throwing them out.

f144 f145

Changing table with bathtub and more diapers under. & Some of Jaydens old shoes that Cayden will be making good use of :).

f146

This shelf is just for storage – nothing special. Diapers, wipes, and extra stuff.

That’s really it for this nursery! I already thought about how to change it to a big boy room in the future. But that’s not till 4-5 years later. Overall a very fun project! Stay tune for more daily updates. This blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern time! Thanks for dropping by!

[Baby] — Nursery Themes For Boys

e294 e295

I know there are quite a few themes to pick for when you’re having a boy. But I’ve come down to two themes!

When I had my first born – I had only one theme in mind and that’s Winnie the Pooh. All his bedding, wall sticker, and decoration were Winnie the Pooh. It was easy.

This time around I’m having another boy. I’m debating if I should keep the same theme or go for something new. Since it is the year of the Monkey – it would be cute to have a monkey theme nursery.

Anyways – I thought long and hard about it. Instead of wasting money on buying new beddings and decorations – I will be sticking with the Winnie the Pooh theme. It just makes more sense when I have everything already. All i need to purchase is the wall stickers! So stay tune when I have everything put together – I will be doing an updated nursery tour for you all! Stay tune for more updates – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Baby] — Nursery Set Up

e404

Here’s my before baby nursery set up – yes when we moved in to our new home. We basically store everything in here. It took me a few days to clear everything out and place furniture where I wanted.

 

It’s not completely finished yet – I still need to decorate and a little more organization.

 

So far – I placed all the baby clothes into the drawer. It was super easy because having another boy means I didn’t need to go out and shop for new things. I had my son’s old clothes stored in boxes and organized in sizes. I’m planning to re-wash all the newborn clothes one month before due date.

e405

When all the wall stickers are in the wall and things complete – I’ll do a proper updated tour of this nursery. I can’t wait to wash all the bedding and have it all set up as well! Stay tune for more daily updates – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!
