Reunited and it feels so good 🎶 Enjoyed a slow, chatty brunch with some @hgtvcanada pals and met some new ones. Thanks for having us, @sangita.patel and @smartwatercanada #smartwater

I’ve been ruminating a lot lately on what it means to be gentle. To seek wellness and to be kind to yourself.

This topic seems to have slowly dominated my life, in the most benign and harmless way domination can—and I believe that’s a really good thing. It seems impossible to truly chase and subsequently accept wellness without having it affect all aspects of your life. And for me, being good to myself starts with what I feed my body. So today on my blog I shared my recipe for homemade KIND bars (filled with crunchy nuts, seeds and honey) [link in bio, as always] 📸: Paul Marcus Fuog #PixelsPlacesThings

The Nordstrom anniversary sale is here! TONS of new arrivals hit the shop at mega discounts before returning to their regular prices. So I rounded up only my favorite home decor and clothing pieces and shared them on the blog [link in bio]. But things sell out quick so scurry your butt! 🏃🏻‍♀️💨 .

Shop my closet and sign up using the link in my bio! 💃🏻 #preloved #wiwt

But between my health taking priority in the past year paired with the realization that life doesn't get any shorter or more predictable, easing into things with more grace has replaced nearly twisting an ankle running to the next checkpoint. In the past, down-time meant growing stir crazy and imagining myself loosing skill with each day that passed, but now I realize that the remedy to bridging the infamous gap Ira Glass talked about between work and taste is often the unasked for pauses which force you to evaluate… [read more with blog link in bio] 📸 @shawnlovering #liketkit #LTKstyletip

If you’re like me and obsess over the details in home design (and never tire until you’ve scrolled through every single page on every lighting, tile, fixture site etc.), then you know how hard it is to make final calls and how changing one item can affect another.
So with the build of #SabrinasBathroom underway, I’ve shared a huge blog post chronicling all of the decisions I made, why I made them, the pains in the butt I ran into, and how my heart ache can help you. [ link in bio ] Spoiler: I’m not DIYing this one, guys! Instead I hired @elitesignaturehomes. More on that choice later!

Piper knows that when I make a latte with my laptop under my arm, it means a few hours in the backyard: me working, her eating sticks and patrolling. We're creatures of habit, indeed.
