Our Stinson Basement Apartment

Ok! We’ve got a house, we’ve got internet (only took a week. Which was actually really hard. Haha. What have we become?) I’ve got a bunch of posts lined up about the new house. But first things first! Before I packed everything up in Hamilton, I took photos of our apartment there. So let me show you where we lived before we moved. For those of you who don’t know, when Dan went back to school 3 years ago we had the whole problem of still needing to pay our... Read The Rest →

transitions

[outfit details]  shirt//Levi’s [Marshalls]  jeans//Levi’s [Girl on the Wing]  necklace//handmade [Clyde’s Rebirth]  bracelets//gifted, vintage, H&M  toque//old [my parent’s infinite winter accessories basket]  boots//vintage [thrifted]  bag//handmade with added tassel from a vintage purse [Hands&Feet Handmade] It’s that time of year, huh? Changing over of the seasons. Eagerly awaiting Spring. (Although, seriously, that was the easiest Winter ever. So I don’t want to hear you complaining, ok?) I’m excited every day to see what’s popping up in my garden though. Because I am that person now. Not sure how it happened, but I’m... Read The Rest →

at home with Elissa&Jay

Hey there! It’s been a couple weeks. I had a final project due in a class I’m taking, so I got a little distracted. But I’ve got a great home tour for you today, so I promise it was worth the wait! I got to visit Elissa a few weeks ago in the home she’s made with her husband Jay and their pup Wendel (his full name is Wendel Bark, how good, right? He’s even got his own insta account.) They moved to the Crown Point neighbourhood about a year... Read The Rest →

at home with Zac&Mieke

I’ve been meaning to stop by my friends Zac and Mieke’s place to take pictures for a while now, but for some reason just never got around to it. And then they told us that they were putting their place on the market and Mieke texted me to see if I could take a few pictures of their family in their first home before it got listed. So this is a little bit family shoot, a little bit home shoot. These things are always so bittersweet, aren’t they? As exciting... Read The Rest →

Grown Up Pants

[[outfit details]]  trousers with suspenders//vintage [thrifted]  top//old [Vera Moda]  necklace//vintage [The Edit]  booties//vintage [thrifted] I just want to say, I’m pretty excited that I’m finally able to say that I own trousers. It just feels right. How else could you even describe these pants? See? Calling them pants just doesn’t them justice. I was excited when I saw them at the thrift store, but also very skeptical. I figured they would look terrible, but I’m all about equal opportunity (and going into the change room as few times as possible)... Read The Rest →

at home with Jentine&Matt

I got to visit Jentine (Yen) from The Edit last week in the home that she shares with her husband Matt and two kitty babes, Kyle and Bec. They’ve lived in this house for 6 years, but Yen has lived in Hamilton since her family immigrated here 27 years ago. Funny story, they moved into their current home the same weekend that we moved into ours and they live just around the corner from us, but we weren’t friends yet so we had no idea. But now we go on... Read The Rest →

at home with Abby&Andrew

Sorry for the brief hiatus friends! I’ve been working on getting ahead of my game, lining up photo shoots and what not, but in the process took an unintentional blogging break. I have lots of good stuff coming up in the next few weeks though, and I’m excited to kick it off with Abby and Andrew’s minimal and cozy space. I met Abby through volunteering at 541 Eatery&Exchange. She moved to Hamilton with her husband Andrew about 3 years ago and shortly after getting here, Abby started volunteering at 541,... Read The Rest →

at home with Ben&Kira

One of my favourite parts of the holidays was having time to stop by a friend’s place for a nice lazy coffee for an hour or two. Everyone is off work (or school) and in slow down mode. We got to stop in at Ben and Kira’s cozy attic apartment just before Christmas and everything was festive and cozy. Ben made us delicious cappuccinos and Kira had just baked shortbread. I mean, seriously. It was pretty perfect. Their kitten Marvin was scampering around, but also doing some serious posing for... Read The Rest →

It’s a New Year.

[outfit details]  Pendleton Blazer//vintage [thrifted]  fur collar//vintage [thrifted]  jeans//Levi’s [GOTW]  Doc Marten’s//vintage [gifted]  knuckle ring//Studio 205   So it’s the New Year. Well, almost anyway. What are you doing New Year’s Eve? Mostly the only thing I like about that question is the song. Or even better, this song. Other than that, I mostly don’t care when it comes to the New Year’s party thing. Maybe because you feel like you have to do something? I just don’t like it when people tell me what to do. I want to... Read The Rest →

Merry Christmas!

[outfit details]  dress//vintage [thrifted]  leather pants//Danier [thrifted]  booties//Clark’s [thrifted]  necklace//vintage [The Edit] Here we are again, Christmas is almost upon us. Hope you guys are all enjoying or looking forward to time spent with family and friends, or, more importantly, taking some precious time for yourself to really enjoy the season. I know it’s a busy time of year, and there’s really nothing we can do to stop that. But you should also take time to just read a book, sit back with a coffee, catch up with a friend....
