LIFESTYLE NOTES

tabletop updates

There is something about dining tables that I love, or more so the act of gathering around a table after a long day to relax, laugh and enjoy the company of friends and family. For as long as I can remember I’ve never really had space for a personal dining table. When I lived in London it was in mostly in shared housing, or in an apartment where the coffee…

Christmas Dress Ideas

The Christmas season is upon us! Last year I set myself rules stating that I would not watch or play any Christmas music until December 1st.

I don’t have any regrets with that of course, as I’ve had the opportunity to travel to so many great places this side of the world like…

MY HOME

Bathroom Update

I still have a lot to learn about interior design but I am enjoying the process and I love…
