Happenings

Can you believe it's mid-November already? I can, because it's damn freezing outside! Time to bring out my Canada Goose parka. Sob. Bright side? The holidays are around the corner! I don't feel ready yet, but here we are—with only weeks to go before Christmas. Last night the kids and I got the house ready and put up some holiday decorations, so now things are starting to feel festive inside.

It's been an incredibly busy time for me, and I am so excited that I have partnered with Urban Barn as their Brand Ambassador and Spokesperson as the store expands in Ottawa with a second location in Kanata.

I love Urban Barn—and I am always inspired with all the stuff they sell, from the bedroom and dining room sets to the home accents. I want to re-do my entire house with everything Urban Barn! I had a fun segment on CTV yesterday where I talked about different looks for the holidays, from hosting a New Year's Eve adults-only party, to how to make your dinner table look festive if you're doing a traditional dinner at home.



I also had so much fun hosting the Urban Barn twitter party the other night, in celebration of Urban Barn's Kanata location opening—especially the part where we were trending in Canada. Wow!

I'll be hosting an in-store Holiday Style Session on Sunday, December 7th, from 10:00-11:00 a.m.,  at the Urban Barn Kanata on Hazeldean Road, and you're all invited to attend! I can't wait to share my tips and tricks with you on how to make your home holiday-ready. (More to come on this soon.)

After CTV I headed over to Daytime Ottawa (where I always love co-hosting the show with Derick!) to talk about how I turned my blog into my business. (Here's a hint: determination, passion, love, and a lot of hard work!) 



Other great news to share: I am the new Community Manager and Online Editor for Momstown Ottawa! I'm thrilled to have joined this awesome team, and I truly love Momstown. It's such  great website and resource for moms, and I'm happy to have been hired in this role. I love Ottawa and I love being a mom, so hopefully I'll provide the kind of quality content people have come to know and love when visiting Momstown.ca. 

Lots of good things going on right now, and busy is always a good thing. I hope you're having a great November, too!
