How to Preserve Your Wedding Flowers

Flowers designed by Dawn Dust Florals | Photography by Daring Wanderer One hard truth about wedding expenses is that flowers add up more than you think they would. I learned that years ago when I worked in the wedding industry, and I was certainly reminded of that when planning our own mini wedding. I consider …

Something New: My Flower Veil

Photography by Daring Wanderer Wearing flowers in my hair on my wedding day was pretty much an absolute guarantee. As I'm sure you've picked up by now, I am a petal-happy flower child. Once I Said Yes to the Dress, accessorizing my bridal look with a floral headpiece was the next step. But when I …

Maid of Honour Proposal

It's only natural that my first blog post of 2020 would be wedding-related because...we've officially started planning our wedding! 😀 But even for a list-making, multitasking, detail-oriented Virgo who’s worked in the wedding industry for four years and can whip up a mood board with my eyes closed...I gotta say, I'm learning a lot.  Despite …

Dark Moon Empress Halloween Costume

Halloween costumes are a favourite on this blog. From unicorn costumes to Ariel costumes, I always look forward to this time of the year to post about what creative direction I decided to venture into for Halloween. This year was particularly fun because I got to be in my usual colourful costumes, and I also got …

Framed Pressed Flowers

One thing that I've realized about myself is that I often feel the need to be surrounded by environments that ignite inspiration. If a few days go by without anything stimulating me creatively, I feel a need to seek it. Those environments can be many things; seasons, cafés, nature, old homes and even images on …

Homemade Room Spray

There was a time in my life when I was obsessed with scented candles and room sprays. Whenever Febreeze came out with a new fragrance, I was always curious to test it out  and whenever Bath & Body Works had a candle sale, I stocked up like an apocalypse was nearing us ("Warm Vanilla Sugar” was …

Enchanting Unicorn Costume

I wish it was socially acceptable to dress up in a costume at any time. Like, if I woke up one morning and decided to wear fairy wings to work, I'd want that to be okay with HR. But until that happens, it seems us costume-and-makeup enthusiasts will have to embrace Halloween as the designated …

90 Years Loved: Handmade Gift Idea for Milestone Birthdays

I think there’s a certain aspect of romance to old family photographs. I don’t mean the old family photos at Chuck E. Cheese birthday parties in the 80s. I’m talking about those black and white photos of our maiden mothers, our newlywed grandmothers, or our handsome great uncles in some sort of distinguished uniform. It’s …

Making a Bar Sign Using Stick-On Tiles

I have acquired the nickname "Crafting Owl" because my creative ideas seem to come to me late at night. I've been known to sporadically pull out my craft box and try to create whatever my mind is visualizing at that very moment, and it always seems to happen between the hours of 10pm-1am. I can't …

Tutu Skirt for a Baby High Chair

A couple of weeks ago, I styled the First Birthday party of my best friend's baby daughter. There were many elements that I loved about this party, the birthday girl being the main one since she is a scrumptious little bunny doll that I wanted to smush every chance I got. Additionally to baby Chloe, …

Two Easy Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs

This year for Easter, I really wanted to step up my egg game. The past two years I've kept the Easter decor to a minimal, gracing our space with only a vase of fresh tulips and a small bowl of Cadbury Mini Eggs. But let's face it, the tulips never lasted and certainly neither did …

Gallery of Vintage Travel Posters

The bare and beige wall above our couch desperately needed some colour. After browsing uninspiring wall art in home decor stores and online, we had the idea of creating our own little gallery of travel posters. Not just any travel posters - we wanted our gallery to represent the destinations we've ventured off to in …
