Life as a Thrifter- Holly is thrifting her way through home decortaing one great re-do at a time. I love seeing her latest finds and what she chooses to do with them. One of my favourite things is that she is always switching up her mantle with new thrift store finds and personal craftiness!

Kyla Brown Photography- Kyla is a genius when it comes to lighting and photography. Her photos always offer something interesting to look at and a perspective I wouldn’t have thought of. I really like her wedding shoots and the landscapes around Invermere, where I live. 


Aside from reading many blogs, I follow several bloggers, Etsy shops and other Mamas on Instagram. I love instagram because you don't have to devote a lot of time to sitting down and actually reading a post. My instagram feed is a quick check in filled with pretty home decor pictures, baby style ideas, pictures of my friends and relatives doing their daily things and an extra little glimpse into the lives of my favourite bloggers.
