Valentine Do's and Don'ts

Hi friends,

First up, DO invest in some astonishingly beautiful flowers to celebrate the occasion


DON'T buy cheap flowers that are dead upon arrival



DO put up handmade decorations like these:



DON'T choose confusing decor for the occasion like this



DO make these yummy Valentine's treats for you loved ones


DON'T make playfood to celebrate the occasion like this

So there you have it. The Valentine's Day Do's and Don'ts from my house to yours. Any that I missed? Please do tell :)

Little Sister Resto + Guestroom Bedding

Hi friends,

Hope the weekend was good to you.

I had a fun night out with friends at Indonesian Tapas restaurant in Toronto. Called Little Sister, it is a hip bistro that serves up authentic Indonesian food in a modern / industrial, super chic decor.

Here are some pics so you can see what I mean:

We asked the waitress to recommend dishes for us to share and she didn't disappoint. The spicy sweet dishes were to die for. The exotics flavors were the perfect combination for the tropical cocktails. Yes, a few may have been sampled ;)

In other news, I have setup the bed in our guestroom. I picked up some cute, inexpensive bedding last weekend at Target (I mentioned earlier that had to get my fix before the stores close for good).

Here's how it looks:




Next up, I will be moving our end tables and lamps into this room. The perfect excuse to buy news ones

I am thinking green

Welcome to the weekend!

I for one am very excited. It's the best time of the week. Today I am sharing a round up of green goodness from Etsy. I know its winter and all but my thoughts have gone to all things green. I am captivated by thoughts of mossy greens, terrariums, and nature. Etsy is just the place to get this goodness.

Thanks for stopping by!
