NEW Biz Cards!


HS7   HS7

Hey friends!

Part of my portfolio course was to design business cards for myself. When I saw that MOO now offered gold foil, I was so excited!! I didn’t know if I would be able to do a paint splatter in gold foil or not but that was the hope. All the way up until the end, I wasn’t sure how it would turn out but I am so in love with them!! They are absolutely perfect!

I tried a number of different options but this was the light/dark combo that both D and myself liked the best. Did I mention how easy they’re system is to use?? This post is totally not sponsored, I just really liked the outcome and the entire process was so simple.

Anyway, you can print so many good things on their site. I can’t wait until D and I are able to get our co-owned biz in order and possibly a small shop so that I can get brand collateral in all shapes and sizes printed.

Have you used moo? Did you like it??

Gift Guide | For Her



I can’t believe Christmas is only 1 week away!! Time really is flying by, 2015 is just around the corner. I usually try and get a few things purchased in advance but I always end up having last minute gifts to buy. I’ve been doing a lot of online browsing and decided to compile some of my favorites into a gift guide for her.

Gorgeous square zip wallet from Everlane.

Unique Napkin sets from Nell and Mary

I’ve had my eyes on these bonsai scissors for a while.

Cute little pouch from Baggu.

My new favorite beauty products and the prettiest packaging I’ve ever had my hands on.

I seriously cannot believe that Christmas is almost here! Where does the time go? Even though I generally do not love the low temperatures, I’m really excited about this winter season. Bundling up, watching it snow, it’s all very cozy. In the city it only snows a few times so everyone stays home and get their snowboards/skis/sleds out and take over the roads. It’s really funny to me because I come from a town that snow A LOT so it’s nice to have a different perspective on snow-days.

I wanted to make my own gift tags and wrapping paper this year so I decided to share them on here as well.

Stay warm and enjoy! xo

I’ve made variations of this smoothie everyday for the last two weeks. I seriously cannot get enough of it! It is so delicious and healthy to boot. It’s prefect for a quick refreshing breakfast or lunch. I’ve been experimenting with different ingredients but I think the ingredients above are my favorite. Throw in some maca powder, chia seeds, different kinds of milk, etc. and see what you like the best.

I decided to create an illustration and I’m hoping to commit to doing them more regularly to challenge myself and to up my illustration skills. I used to be faster at it but I haven’t had time as of late. I need to change that asap. Fall Term starts Monday so we’ll see how it goes!

Is it friday yet??

Hi Friends,

Here are a few pictures from the overnight trip we took to Vancouver a few weeks ago. We definitely did not spend enough time there and can’t wait to visit again. The weather was lovely, we ate some amazing food and it was overall a lot of fun. So much to do, so little time.

Hope you had a refreshing weekend!

Cheers! Heather




I don’t know about you but I am so excited for June!! The sky is beautiful, temperatures are perfect and the colors are overwhelming. June is one of my favorite months and this year is no exception. We are only on the 2nd day and I love it already.

Here’s to a great month! xx, heather
