Artemano Family Moments

Growing up, some of my fondest memories revolve around the family room of my parents’ house. In my toddler stages, I remember being chased around and around the coffee table. It only took me a year to realize that running in between and through the legs of the table and not around was what it took to win the game of cat and mouse. Fast forward several years later (think of a 7 year old me), and I was the one chasing my younger brother around the table.

Fast forward again a couple more years, and I’m using the coffee table as a support to prop up a meter stick, which was then used as framework for a bedsheet tent. My brother and I would spend hours crawling around in between the tunnels made out of makeshift bedsheets draped over top of a meter stick in between the couch and the coffee table.

Which is why I’m so happy to be partnering with Artemano to share the Artemano Family Moments. Beyond the rustic nature of Artemano’s decor, I love their brand mentality of creating closeness, connection, and community. Looking back on my past, the furniture in my house played a large role in creating the bond of family. This collection of moments really iterates just how integral furniture is to our home lives, and how wonderful memories are created with this pieces, yet the furniture is never given much credit.

For those of you who are currently in the process of making over your home, or simply looking for some additional pieces of furniture to update your decor, Artemano is offering a $10,000 makeover contest – and entering is ridiculously easy. To enter, all you have to do is:

  1. Visit an Artemano store and take a picture of the Artemano treasure you want to bring home (or select online).
  2. Share on social media and you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to win the $10,000 makeover contest when using the hashtag #myartemano.
  3. Show a member of the Artemano team to automatically receive 50% off that treasure.
  4. Repeat weekly for additional entries into the $10,000 makeover contest.

And as a little bonus for me (because I’m always curious), I’d love to hear how furniture impacted your life and family growing up. What are some of your fondest moments in your house? Best of luck!

DIY At Home Spa

We’ve made it to Friday! T-minus almost 24 hours before I fly out to Vancouver for a week! I have this ritual that I perform before every big trip that I have – to give myself an at-home spa. Some girls may glam themselves up for a hot date, I like to glam myself up for a big trip! Since tonight will be another big night of R&R, I wanted to share some of my favourite at-home spa products that I’ve been loving lately.

I was tasked with the goal of putting together and styling an office appropriate outfit that complemented my personal aesthetic. I’m so excited to share with you the outfit that I pulled together and the thought process that resulted in the pieces that I selected.

The Nordstrom Warehouse Sale Treasure Trove

May 13, 2016

Treasure Trove

Dress – L Space // Heels – Vince

I’m a sucker for a good sale – as are most people. But a good sale to me isn’t just 30% off, a good sale to me is being able to get quality pieces for a good price. Sure I love my H&M and Zara, but the quality of high street fashion is sometimes still difficult to justify – even with a sale. Would you believe me if I told you that this entire outfit from Nordstrom would have costed me over $700.00, but I got it for less than $80? Dreams really do come true.
