1. SHOP by Monika Cuddle Cushion
I posted a photo of this cushion over the weekend of one of my favorite new additions to our home - the "We Should Probably Cuddle Now" cushion. I just think that's it's too cute and totally suits the contemporary eclectic vibe of our condo. Shop by Monika always has the cutest finds and this one is no exception. Check out some of her other goodies here!
2. Lauren Conrad's Floral Arranging Tip
When it comes to arranging flowers I am the worst. For someone who considers herself pretty crafty and design savvy I totally miss the boat when it comes to florals. I love this tip of using tape to separate your arrangements and have a bit more control over the overall look of the arrangement. Read here for a further breakdown and feel free to share any of your own tips!
1. Pouf Ottomans
There's nothing cuter and more 'now' in home decor than these fab pouf ottomans. They're available online, or, even better if you live in Edmonton, they're at the oh-so-wonderful Jilly's Boutique that we always brag about. These bad boys can be used for extra seating, a place to rest your feet, or as a side table to hold your cup of coffee. Oh, and they look awesome too!
I'd never tried Joe Fresh lipstick until last week, when this colour caught my eye and I had to buy it. At only $6 a pop, I wasn't afraid to try it and I'm happy I did! The texture is drier than my usual MAC favorites, but it actually acted as more of a stain than a lipstick and I liked the effect! It might be a good idea to have some lip balm on hand when wearing this though, as insurance against the over dry look that's never cute.
1. Red Ox Inn
For years now this has been my favourite restaurant in Edmonton. Nestled away just off of Conner's road, the cozy atmosphere of the Red Ox is my boo and I's #1 pick for a date night. After over three years and an ever changing seasonal menu, I have never had a dish I did not love, or a bottle of wine we didn't polish off.
2. Redken Heat Activated Texturizer
To make your waves or curls last for days and days, mist a healthy amount over your strands before heat styling. The texture is perfect, never crunchy, always shiny, and easily brushed through to give full next day waves. I'm nearly through my first bottle and this is definitely a re-buy.
