Lifestyle Personal Posts Scenes from my Week

scenes from my weekend


dinner at Defina | organizing our friends new condo | post-move beverages
his & hers tea | organizing our own cupboards 

The fact that we were recruited to help our friends move on Saturday (at 8:30 am no less) meant that we were given a free pass to do absolutely nothing of serious value the rest of the weekend. And so that’s just what happened. All of the unpacking and arranging that ensued on Saturday encouraged us to get our own apartment in shape (which to me is the equivalent of a good time. I love me some organizing). We, of course, made sure this was balanced out with a delicious dinner out (me) a Jays game (Justin), a nap of epic proportions (for the both of us) and a silly movie (The Five Year Engagement: hilarious!) All in all, a really great weekend. How was yours?

      Thanks Molly! They were a houswarming gift, but I believe you can pick them up at Umbra (they’re very inexpensive and the perfect size)

      Thanks Tiffany! Not only does it make better use of the space, but it looks prettier and it allowed me to go through everything and make sure we hadn’t doubled up on anything!

      It was hilarious. I really enjoyed it – but I might have a secret crush on Jason Segel

    That sounds amazing.. I love a good organisation too! If I start though, everything has to be just so. So I just don’t start, as I’d never get anywhere! Beautiful grey and yellow bowls, my sisters pregnant at the moment and they’re not finding the gender out before hand so everything’s grey and yellow, it’s cute :) xx

      I’m the exact same. When I do start I need it to all. happen. NOW. It’s not the best way to function
