When I’m not blogging for Curious Citizen, I love dedicating time to another one of my passions, interior design. I’m always honoured when I’m asked to help plan or make over a space, especially when it’s a project near and dear to someone’s heart. This was definitely the case with my most recent design project – a nursery for the imminent arrival of a new little bundle of joy. When my friend Sheri asked me to help design the nursery for baby #2 I was super excited, but also a

No matter how many years I’ve been out of school (and let’s not dwell too long on that actual number, lest I start to wrinkle before my very own eyes), September always feels like the time to start class. And though I may not be a full-time student any longer, there are always things to learn, so this year, I’m putting on my thinking cap to attend Blog Podium. This one-day conference, held at the end of September, will see design and lifestyle bloggers from across the nation converge on downtown
Anyone who’s ever tasted a pretzel M&M can attest, sweet and salty is, hands down, one of the ultimate flavour combinations. I’ve found this sweet spot in chocolate chip cookies dotted with sea salt, or in McDonalds french fries dipped in a hot fudge sundae (don’t knock it til you’ve tried it).

I have several vices in life (most of which I will deny in public), but one that I feel totally comfortable revealing is my addiction to greeting cards. I love a great greeting card. One that’s beautifully letterpressed. Or hilariously random and funny. Or touchingly sweet. Or just too pretty to pass up. I have an entire box at home, full of cards that I’ve picked up along the way, always at the ready for birthdays, babies, weddings, holidays, sympathy, or just to say hello. I think it’s a habit
