70s Maxi Dress | Pattern Review

One thing I love is trying out the styles of different areas as each has different things that describe them perfectly so I chose the 1970s.
The 70s seem like an era of smooth, clean lines and flowy garments and fabric patterns that are out of this world. I especially love the long, flowing, fitting designs of the dresses, that look like they should be worn at a beach or in a desert. The pattern that I chose did not disappoint in all of these accounts. 
It was an easy sew, it flowed and the fabric was paisley pattern, practically 1970s ready!

Let it Glow Vox Box | Influentster Review

About a month and a half ago I was accepted into the Let it Glow Vox Box campaign, my first Influenster box ever. This vox box was centred on taking care of yourself and letting yourself *glow* in these dark, cold days.
I tried out all of the given products and afterwards decided to write a review here on what I thought about the products and their results and if I would buy them.

Sewing Resolutions for 2019 | hopes + plans

Now that we're less than two weeks into the New Year and I've been thinking about what I will sew this year. Will I make pants or skirts? Russian patterns or English ones? So many options but so little time since I'm at school and have other pressing things.
I decided to write this post as a way for me to remember what I'll be doing throughout the year and to plan ahead. I do not have any firm sewing intentions because like always they can evolve over time.

In my last post, I wrote my blogging goals and plans for this year but since I am a sewist too, it made sense to do some sewing related resolutions for this year.

My 2019 Blogging Goals and Plans

Happy New Year! It is now 2019!
How was your Nouvelle Anne fĂȘte? I sincerely hope that it was filled with food, family and fun. Now that a new year has begun (2019!!!), it means it is time to plan the next year ahead to be able to get the most out of it possible. I'm a firm believer of planning ahead instead of just guessing along the way (but unfortunately sometimes I forget that)

Achievements of 2018 | Year in Review

Only 5 days till 2019! Can you believe that this year is coming to a close and soon we'll be saying 'bye-bye' to 2018?!
This year has definitely been different. Though I started blogging in 2017, I didn't get serious until this year and many a thing has happened.
After thinking for a while I decided to do a post on all of my achievements in 2018. More as a reminder of all that went right and well this year, instead of focusing on all of the negative. I think it's important that people remember the positives/achievements of the year, for one will never relive the time again.

Little Phrase in House Ornament | DIY


So it's less than a week before Christmas! Can you believe how fast time has flown and the new year is nearly upon us too!?
A couple of weeks ago I was at the mall (my only free time) when I stumbled upon an ornament made out of wood that was so cute and creative that I thought of diy-ing it myself. I call it my phrase house ornament for it looks like a little house with a phrase in it.
I thought of posting this craft earlier this month but school got in the way (again).

Christmas Tag | 2018

Hi, there!


I know that November passed and yet there were no posts and for that I'm sorry. Like I said in this post, school has been harder than expected and I've been having a hard time managing it all.
I thought it'd be cool to do a Christmas post of sorts and a fellow Canadian blogger did a tag post and so I've never done one so I wanted to try it out!
