[Haul] — Pink Kitchen Accessories

Sharing a home accessories haul with you all. I’ve been looking for pink containers ever since I moved into my new place. I had no luck. I wasn’t about to give up because I like things in my home a certain way.

I was so thrilled to find these pink microwavable containers at One’s Better Living. The larger containers were at $6.99 for 3 and the smaller ones are at $6.99 for 6. This is an amazing deal! I’ll be picking up more soon. Now I can throw out the old containers!

Also I picked up a new can opener and a few pairs of chopsticks at T&T Supermarket. I’m easily satisfied when I see things matching! Am I weird or what?

Have a HAPPY day!!!

[Review] — Zwilling Sol II, 10 Pc Cookware Set Review

It’s about time to review this set of cookware I received during 2016 Christmas. It’s my very own set of cookware. With such an OCD person I am – I like to have a matching set instead of pieces from different brands. I’ve used this set for a good 4 months already.

They packed this set very sturdy. Let me tell you – this set of cookware is VERY heavy. I should of known how heavy it is before I purchased it but I didn’t think of it. It came with 10 pieces plus a free frying pan (picture right below). This set was on sale at 40%off and it came with a free frying pan.

Reason why I choose this set instead of the other sets is because I like the details on this set. I didn’t like the shiny glaze on it. Do I love it? I have to say – the only thing that throws me off is the weight of it! It’s heavy! I am used to holding pans and pots in one hand. I had to adjust to the weight but overall – this set is a pretty decent set. Also – I love how I can put these pots and pans in the oven to finish off my cooking. Which is convenient for me since I like to do both.

The sale at Kitchen Stuff Plus told me that Henckels Zwilling has a lifetime warranty – which sold me on it. But would I really keep this set for a lifetime? I think I would get bored of looking at it for the next 50 years lol. But for sure – sturdy! if anything happens to the handles – I can just call Henckels. This set comes with everything I need – no need to go buy extra pieces. I would recommend it – only if you don’t mind the weight of it.

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Organization] — Kids & Babies Toys & Gadgets

 

Here’s a before photo before I changed up the play area again. At first – I was thinking maybe we should have a baby section and a kid section – so they both have their own area. But than – that wasn’t a good idea because toys were going literally everywhere. Especially when Munchkin#2 knows how to crawl.

Here’s an updated version of our play area as of now. I decided to combine the toys and have it in one area instead. Much easier to deal with instead of having it in 2 separate spots. They can play together too. Well – sometimes Munchkin#1 enjoys playing with baby brother.

Here’s the extra toys inside Munchkin#1’s room. At first – I didn’t like the idea of having toys inside a child’s room because who knows what they will be doing in the middle of the night right? But it turned out not a bad idea – our son never gets up to play toys. When it’s bed time – it’s bed time.

My kids are very fortunate to be gifted with many things during Birthdays and Christmases. We are very blessed. I cannot wait to get rid of some toys and bring in the bigger toys left at my in-laws place. I didn’t grow up with a lot of toys when I was a child – so my kids are super blessed with so many things to play with. To me – that’s what a childhood should be like.

Have a GRATEFUL 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!!!

[Organization] — Ikea Shelf Bins Organization

g0286

Being organize is my loving hobby! Yes – what better way than to live in an organize home and knowing where everywhere is?

I’ve lived in our new home for over an year now. I feel ultra-ly comfortable living in our new home and sometimes I don’t even want to step foot out of my home. The comfort of my home is everything! Especially with my family!

When we moved into our first bought condo – I was almost two months pregnant. At that time. I could barely organize anything with morning sickness and an almost 4 year old to take care of. It was so tough. I ended up just stuffing everything into these Ikea clear cabinets. Just to get it out of my sight at the time.

g0287

I picked out these clear cabinets instead of the solid fabric ones because it looks more stylish for my dining area. I do have the fabric cabinets in my son’s room – they are great to store anything! The fabric one is cheaper too!

Since I got the time – I fore-took this project of cleaning out these cabinets – it was a project for me. Categorizing things and throwing out things. Took about a few hour to clean out but definitely worth it!

It feels amazing after everything was organized – I know where everything is now. I wonder what is my next project? Won’t show the after progress because there’s too much to show. Stay tune for more!

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!

[Organization] — Kitchen Snack Cabinet Bins

g0283

Here’s my little haul from Kitchen Stuff Plus. Since these Ashley storage basket was on sale for $7.50 each – I decide to re-organize my son’s snacks. The little aqua blue jar is for my son’s hot lunches for school.

g0284

My son doesn’t snack on much variety of snacks – he has always enjoyed gold fishes, cheerios, and bear paws. Occasionally I’ll give him a bag of chips but only once a blue moon.

g0285

All organized! I wish my cabinet was a little wider – so I can add 2 extra storage baskets. But overall – very satisfied with these baskets – very sturdy and you can stack them up to however many you want. Do you have them? Love them or hate them? Comment below & share! Stay tune for more organizational ideas & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

Have a GREAT day!!!

[Celebration] — Our 2016 Christmas Morning

Still catching up with Christmas events! I finally got things settle and am back to my regular schedule! Woohoo! Anyways – this was a very special Christmas for all of us. It was our second son’s first Christmas & It was the first Christmas that we introduce Santa to our first son. He was believing in everything – he even saw a little clip with Santa on a sleigh and reindeer flying in the sky. It was SO magical for him! It was so amazing to watch! I love it! I never got to know or experience Santa’s magical fairytale and I am so glad my boys get to experience it!

Christmas morning is just for our family only – it’s a day where we spent it opening presents in the morning in our matching pajamas. It’ll be one of our traditions that started last year. My heart is so warm and happy watching my boys grow and be happy.

This Munchkins’ 1st Christmas – look at that cheerful boy! We had an eventful morning – Santa brought everyone presents! Munchkin#1 helped with opening baby brothers’ presents too. I don’t need anything else because I have my family – they are my everything! Can’t wait for 2017 Christmas in about 10 months! Are you excited for Christmas in 10 months? Lol – I must be a little crazy!

Have a BLISSFUL 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!!!

Their stuff is just too cute! Can’t wait to use all the food stamps! I can be lazy at making my own food stamps this year! Hehehe. What are your Christmas hauls? Comment below to share!

[Kids] — Christmas Gingerbread House 2016

We decided to do our annual gingerbread house at home this year since I couldn’t find a class at Loblaws for it.

We bought a kit at No Frills for $10 bucks. The pre-built ones are more expensive but since we can never keep the house up – I decided it’s best to get the pre-built ones. Just easier for us.

We had fun decorating – Munchkin#1 helped with decorating the roof while we did the rest. Munchkin#2 helped by just watching and not crying lol.

Look at how concentrated he was! I have to say that this year he is more excited and enthusiastic in all these Christmas activities!

I think we’ll just buy the kit every year – so we can spend family quality time at home. Maybe next year Munchkin#2 can help too! What kind of festive activities did you do with your kids?

[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.

[Organization][Home] — Kitchen Cabinets Organization • IKEA 365+ Containers

g0140

Before Picture

Since my first born started school – I have a little more time to do things in peace as in I can get things done in one go instead of stopping 20x in between to do one thing. I’ve been wanting to organize ALL my kitchen cabinets for awhile. I couldn’t organize them when we first moved in because I was having severe morning sickness than life got busy. So here it is – I’m only showing two cabinets because I totally forgot to take ‘before’ photos of the others.

g0139

After Picture

I had my entire kitchen redone before moving in and I love how the inside of the cabinets can be adjusted very easily. Before shopping for new containers – I had everything measured out. Containers jars can be so expensive – I found these containers at IKEA and it’s the 365+ series. I love the look of it but wished it can be a little wider.

Left Cabinet: Top) All pastas – I fitted about 6 large containers. Middle) All my soup ingredients. Bottom) Where I store all my different size bowls.

Right Cabinet: All my baking ingredients. They look so much neater when it’s all in one cabinet instead in 2-3 different areas.

Organizing makes me so happy for some reason – it’s so therapeutic and fun! Spent quite a bit on the containers but I know I’ll be using it for a long long time unless I accidently drop them and they crack. Which is not gonna happen! I love how they are clear – no need to label them. Do you enjoy organizing too? What is your organizing tips? Comment below to share.  Stay tune for more hauls and reviews – this blog is updated regularly! Thanks for dropping by!

Have an AMAZING day!!!
