well, that’s something I never expected to see …

Yes. That is my photo in that poster above. 🙂 I’m terribly embarrassed to post this, but at the same time quite excited and honoured. I have been invited to be a speaker in a series of talks hosted by Telus and Samsung.  I will get to share some of my insights on home decor, talk about how I’ve gone about decorating my home mixing highs and lows, how I use my smart phone as part of the process (hellooooo Pinterest and Etsy!) and, if that wasn’t enough – I’ll give out a list of my favourite shopping spots around Toronto. Even my Value Village locations. Yup. Priceless.Obviously, if you read my blog you’ll know I don’t take myself too seriously and I don’t consider myself as an expert by any means on anything. Howeverthere are certain things that I have a passion for – renovating and decorating are at the top of that list.

There will be 3 dates across Toronto (one in Oakville, The Beach and at The Shops at Don Mills). The first one is May 21st in Oakville, and if you’re in that area and want to come, I’d LOVE to see you. I’ll post when the other locations have sign ups, but if you’re in Oakville, sign up!

Ps., The fact that I’m on a poster kind of made me giggle. I’m seriously going to steal the posters from the locations. Kidding. (No, I’m not kidding) 

P.P.s., I don’t really look like my picture above. I usually have my hair in a bun. I’m usually in jeans and a sweatshirt. So depending on how Oscar is that day, you may get my “fancy / professional” self as shown in the photograph or, me in my Mom jeans and Starbucks coffee stains on my shirt.

christmas recap in photos

Christmas 2013 likely will be remembered as one of my most memorable Christmas’s yet.  I’m still soaking in all of the time I have with Oscar and Aubrey, not feeling the pressure (yet) to work. But before the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, I wanted to recap in photos the last week. Ice Storms, loss of heat, electricity – but all of the moments with family and thankfully, everyone is healthy.  The next post will be in 2014 – I hope you all have a wonderful New Year’s Eve.Santa really focused on Oscar this year – but a certain fellow may have bought me some beautiful pearl earrings and some lovely Lancome products. Are we the only people that say to each other that we’re not going to do gifts and then totally buy gifts? It always works out that way for us.  I gave Aubrey this. Because we adore that man, and that song.

See you in 2014! xo Lindsay

gift show

The gift show this weekend was a success. In terms of work and stress, it was so much easier being the second time – I knew what to expect, and also I tweaked the product line based on what I knew sold well last year. Above are some pictures from the show that I thought I’d share. I am now hunkering down to respond to e-mails and focus on orders. Just a wee bit stressed but nothing coffee won’t fix. 😉 xo Linds
