Weekly loved + links- 09.03.21

Hey hey friends and happy Fri-yay. This week was a really productive week in our household with interviews, appointments, and downsizing filling my time. I’m happy to have the weekend to kick back and take a breather. Lets keep things nice, light, and sweet today with a few things I’m loving right now.

ONE | where has this book been all my life? If anyone needs to calm the fuck down and stop worrying all the damn time, it’s me.

TWO | these 90’s inspired pinch waisted shorts are a great summer to fall transition piece and they’re on sale for $69.95 down from $148

THREE | dark wash Levi jeans that come in four different colours and are totally retro-inspired staples

FOUR | I love the maroon colour they used for the New Balance logo, paired against the overall neutral colour of the shoe it’s right on trend for fall

Oh Sundaze // 07.18.21

Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend and the weather stayed nice wherever you’re reading this from! I figured we were long over due for a catch-up and while I’m at it I owe you guys an explanation as well. Grab a cuppa and curl up for a catch up with ya girllll.

Over the past two weeks I haven’t really been posting on my regular scheduled dates because I’ve honestly lacked the motivation & inspiration. I told myself this summer will be “slow” by choice. I plan to spend the next two months living and working at a slower pace, writing and creating when I feel inspired, but ultimately listening to my body and resting/ relaxing when I need to.

Advertisements

I’ve explained in this post the ways that I’ve been slowly but surely improving my mental health and changing bad habits. I think that taking this summer slow really plays into that process and hopefully I’ll be able to carry forward what I learn into my everyday life even once summer has faded. So with that being said – I’m still here! Just takin’ it a little slower these days.

pup-date

You all should know our baby Penny by now. She’s a red Boston terrier and we just love her so!

Our plan was to get her fixed ASAP like we did with our other animals however covid (and the universe) ultimately had a different plan. Since everything was forced to shut down the backlog it caused for the procedure was astronomical and after a ton of research we’ve decided we are going to breed her within the next few months!

Tristan grew up alongside her Grandpa raising and breeding huskeys so she’s extremely passionate about doing this and we couldn’t be more excited for puppies!!

school update

In my last oh Sundaze post I told you guys that I took a huge leap and enrolled in the real estate program through Humber College. It’s been going really well so far although it is a ton of information to get through, my brain has been tired lol. I’m happy to let you all know that I passed my first exam (one of four) and I’m not onto the next step in the learning process!

I’m so excited to launch myself into this new career with an amazing established team to support me. I’ve managed to sign on with a brokerage and this past Wednesday we had a ‘new’ agent team meeting and I both loved & soaked up every minute of it. I’ve never been apart of a team of people so warm, welcoming, and ready to help with anything and everything they can – and when I thought I was briefly in the past I got royally fucked over. And on that note – onto bigger and better things!

Team zoom meetings

date night at the drive-in

Things are finally starting to return to normal and restrictions are being lifted here in Ontario so of course we took advantage and went to the drive-in movie theatre! It was such a fun night, we made a little bed in the back of Tristan’s hatchback, added some fairy lights, loaded up on snacks, and watched two amazing movies.

We saw Black Widow, which as a huge marvel fan was highly anticipated, and Cruella. Both were phenomenal and I honestly couldn’t pick a favourite if I tried, however I have to give it to Emma Stone for her portrayal of Cruella – she fucking killed it and the level of talent… I can’t even.

I also made a cute little Tiktok of our date night if you wanna check it out HERE 🙂

severe weather

This past week there was a devastating tornado that passed through the south end of my town and destroyed multiple homes. We were very lucky to not be effected nor have any loved ones effected however it was still a traumatic event and our hearts go out to those who were.

In our end we just got extreme showers and thundering/lighting, with a little bit of wind but nothing we haven’t ever seen before. No one expected it but so far there have been no fatalities and our community has come together to support the families without a home right now. It’s beautiful to see the outpouring love and donations! #BarrieStrong

joined the Apple Watch club

I’m not someone who jumps in line to get the latest tech releases, generally using what I have until it breaks – if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right?

Although Apple watches have been around for what seems like forever now [how did we live without them before??] I’ve never had the privilege of owning one… until now!

My amazing MIL was gifted a new series six and she was kind enough to pass her series four down to me! I’m still getting the hang of it and figuring out the nifty things I can do with it but so far I absolutely am obsessed! I can’t wait to buy some cute bands, send me your suggestions!

currently reading

A few weeks ago I updated y’all on my progress with the Goodreads 2021 reading challenge and since then I’ve picked up the seventh book in the Outlander series: an echo in the bone. So far I’m loving it! This will be book 6 out of the 10 I’ve challenged myself to read this year.

Obsessed: mirrors, mirrors & more mirrors

Mirrors are multipurpose – they looks amazing as decor pieces, you can check yourself out before you leave the house, and it can play illusions like making a space feel taller or brighter. Lately I’ve been hearting a variety of different styles and living vicariously through those who own the Anthropologie gleaming primrose mirror. One day that mirror will be mine but for now I thought I’d share some tips that I’ve learned when it comes to styling a mirror and my fave picks! Let’s dive in.

Advertisements

add some light

Don’t have a lot of windows in a room? Hang a mirror on a window-less wall to give the illusion of a window. This works because light bounces off of the glass and reflect the elements surrounding it!

Here’s an awesome farmhouse inspired window mirror:

+ another great option for an arched pane window mirror from Walmart

Advertisements

add height + length

The easiest way to make a room appear longer or taller is to add a mirror, IMO. To make a room look taller the goal is to draw the eyes upward, so think full length mirrors. If you want the allure of a longer room, stick with floor length but make it twice as wide so that the mirror takes up the majority of the wall.

Modern & Contemporary Full Length Mirror
by: 
@Wayfair North America
modern and contemporary full length mirror // comes in 4 different finishes and 3 sizes

See how this mirror brings your eyes up almost all the way to the ceiling? This makes the room feel taller because it gives the illusion that the wall is taller than it appears.

Abad Simple Oversized Thin Aluminum Alloy Modern Full Length Mirror Latitude Run® Size: 71" H x 24"

@Wayfair North America
simple oversized alloy mirror // comes in 2 different finishes and 2 sizes

An oversized mirror hung horizontally can transform a space and make it appear wider or longer due to the reflection.

mirrors for decor

There are tons of mirrors that are designed to be more of a statement piece than an item you actually utilize and although to some that might seem silly – let me change your mind with these adorable finds.

This adds so much flare and personality to whatever space you bring it into! This mirror is sold at Target and currently is out of stock however you can get notified as soon as its back.

Josephine Mirror
by: Anthropologie
@Anthropologie (US)
josephine mirror in size mantel

Oh Anthropologie, you know how to make a girls decorating dream come true. Whether placed on your mantel or hung on the wall, this traditional piece displays age-old sophistication. This gorgeous mirror also comes in a floor length option!

Another super cute Target mirror! This decorative round leaf wall mirror in gold is very affordable ringing in at only $40! The intricate flower and leaf design would go great paired in with your eclectic home decor. 

+ if you’re style airs more on the side of simple yet modern check out this black circle oversized mirror

That’s all I have for you today – what did you think about the mirror round up? I hope it inspired you to add one or two of these items to your shopping carts!
