Belle Vie / 23

2. Some of our plant babies. My jade and cactus are not doing too well right now, there just is not enough sunlight in our apartment. But Ryan is such a good plant papa, I’m not too worried about it.
3. On Tuesday, Meaghan and I went to the Canadian Whisky Cocktail Competition at The Drake to support our friend Lindsay who was a finalist in the competition. The Drake is a rather famous hotel/restaurant/bar in Toronto. But it’s the sort of place I avoid most of the time…If you live in Toronto, you understand. I normally only head there for fun events…Oscar viewing party, watching the gold medal game for hockey in the Olympics…that sort of thing. And now a cocktail competition. It was so much fun, and I now have a much greater appreciation for bartender’s craft.
4. Lindsay doing her thing! It was so neat to watch her craft her drink – she put a lot of work into her cocktail. I’m just sad that I didn’t end up getting to try it. Meg and I got to try most drinks because we stationed ourselves right at the front of the bar, but her drink didn’t end up getting passed in our direction.
5. The cloud baby. So thankful for this guy each and every day.

The Trees They Grow So High

Processed with VSCOcam with n1 presetI’ve been trying to make more time for creative endeavors recently. This bleak winter has not been kind to my creative mind and I feel I’ve been a bit lazy for some time now — a whole lot of ideas, and not a lot of follow through. It’s hard to stay motivated when not much around you feels very inspiring. But I’ve got some exciting things in the works which has got me feeling positive again. I want this space to be wholly me and not just posts that fill in the gaps when I don’t have something of my own to share (although I do love supporting the amazing designers, artists and brands that I share). I’ve been rethinking the blog’s image, and the content I share. Maybe a name change? Or maybe it’s not ready for that just yet. I definitely want to introduce a little more uniformity to it. When Meg and I started this blog we had a weekly routine of posts we would share, but it got lost in translation over time. This space has changed so much since then. It is only me and my voice now, so it makes sense I leave some things behind, keep the idea of reoccuring content, but with more of my own original ideas. As most things are, it’s a work in progress. But I do hope you continue to follow along and this space can continue to grow in a positive way.
