Like I said it was my birthday this past weekend. We had some people over to celebrate mine and one of my best friends birthdays, so I hung the birthday banner my sisters and I made for the occasion.
My Mother-in-law took me shopping so I could pick out a few presents. So naturally we headed straight to Anthropologie. I picked out this cream cookie jar that I have been eyeing for a while. I am not much of a baker so I won’t actually be using it to hold cookies. I put it right beside my Keurig coffee maker and put all my k-cups in it!
I also got these measuring cups, mostly just for looks. I have them on my counter to look pretty!
Apparently I have a thing for colored pants. I love this pair because they go with pretty much everything! I paired them with a loose fitting black blouse, brown kitten wedges and a brown clutch.

It was my birthday on the weekend, and I got some really nice presents! Including a new camera lens which I took these photos with! My Mom knows how much I love anthropologie and she got me this dishtowel that I have been in love with for a long time now! Because I love it so much I don’t want to use it and ruin it, so I decided to hang it on one of the walls in my kitchen. This is what I had hanging before..
And this is the dishtowel hanging with some bakers twin and small clothespins!
Polka dots are showing up everywhere lately, and I’m loving it! These pants from the Gap don’t scream in your face with a really bold pattern, but the pattern is still there enough to make them a little different. I paired them with a loose tank (with a bralette underneath it) and some summer sandals.

I have a good friend named Tess. She got married in Mexico at the end of January, and it was an amazing trip. There was a group of 62 of us that went, including friends from work, my sister and her husband, and a whole bunch of other friends. When Tess asked me to make her bouquets with her I was ecstatic! My sister Chelsea and I made the bouquets for my wedding and it was so much fun. We went to a store downtown Edmonton that sells the most beautiful silk flowers, and we put them together. The best part about having a silk wedding bouquet is you can use it for more then just your wedding day. Tess has her bouquet displayed on her coffee table in her living room!
These next photos are done by my other friend Erin Walker Photography. These where all taken on Tess’ wedding day in mexico.
I often go to antique malls and spend hours looking at all the old treasures. The last time I was at an antique mall, I saw a dreamcatcher that was made with a doily and some ribbon. And we all know how much I love doilies from this post, Doilies make my heart happy! So I gathered up my art supplies that would work for this project and went out and bought some feathers!
I hung it in one of the spare bedrooms on the wall when you first walk in!
I tried to use some feminine colors to brighten up the bedroom! Pretty cute, right?
I love sparkles and sequins on clothing, especially on shirts you wouldn’t expect them to be on. This sweatshirt material t-shirt is so comfy, but yet it is still cute with its little bit of sparkle.
My favourite Michael Kors bag.
