In Bits + Pieces

bits + pieces no. 20197


We escaped the Toronto cold and headed off to Mexico to Paradisus La Esmeralda. The pricing at this particular resort has been more than we could afford the last few years but in a moment of “get us out of the cold or I’m going to die” during the winter, I searched up the resort and there were some crazy deals so we jumped on it and booked. All inclusive is not my favourite type of travel, but it certainly is the easiest and good for the whole family. You know what you’re paying, no one has to drive from point A to B, and the hospitality is awesome. If you’re looking to book, we recommend Katherine Lewis who has handled most of our vacations. We booked this one on our own because we stumbled on a sale and didn’t want to loose out – but if you’re planning ahead, an agent like Katherine is awesome.

I went to a sound bath in a salt cave at a new spot in Toronto called Hoame. I went to one in California last year and found it so helpful – Meditation and mindfulness has helped me immensely over the winter with leading a healthier lifestyle and taking the occasional class like this are little treats. I wish I could do it more often but it can all add up to be expensive. The nice thing is – it’s like a little refresher class to get you practicing meditation at home – all of these things you can do at home for free, but sometimes a class is a nice way to spend an evening.

Serena & Lily Spring Design Event

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 /
9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15

Heads up! Serena and Lily are having their Spring Design Event! Staring today, March 19, 2019 and through to March 25, 2019 you can get 20% off in stores and online with the code INSPO. We’re looking for outdoor furniture for our new back deck, so I have my eye on a number of pieces in their outdoor collection, and I’ve also always coveted the Carson side chair, and am considering them for the eat in kitchen when we revamp that in a bit.

I’m always obsessed with the lighting options at Serena & Lily and above are some of my all time faves – some for the house, some for my imaginary beach house where the rattan would fit in for a Kennebunkport vibe. If you haven’t yet, do check out their outdoor collections because I am ob-sessed.
