Joyful by My Daughter Fragrance Giveaway!

I am soooo very excited about this giveaway! You may have seen the Joyful perfume ad on my sidebar before, and I am thrilled to share more about it today. Joyful is a scent by My Daughter Fragrances, which is a company started and run by a local Edmonton mom. Janey is probably one of the sweetest ladies out there and she has created an absolutely stunning scent. 

Not only was is dreamed up by Janey, but she literally hand cures, filters and bottles all the raw materials that she gets from France. Every bottle is a labor of love, and I can promise you that it shows. The scent is fresh, vibrant and happy. Joyful is the perfect expression to describe it.

Life in Paradise

Sorry for the radio silence guys! My laptop died over a week ago and I am making the transition to Mac (I'm sure it will be great, but I don't deal well with change!). No sooner had my laptop bit the dust than we hopped on a plane to California for some much needed rest and relaxation. We had so much happening in March with at least two bouts of flu, countless trips to the dentist between all of us, and my endless hunt for the next flip project (and a fun upcoming announcement I will be sharing in a few weeks that I've been working on) it seems like the whole month went by in the blink of an eye. 

So we are slowing down for the next couple weeks. And while I may not have a slew of decor related posts I will have no shortage of pictures of warm weather and lush palm trees. Which is exactly what I've been longing for after our endless winter.

Is there anything more fun than cannon ball contests? I think not.

And now I am off to pack up for our rendez vous with Mickey Mouse for the rest of the week.
toodles!

Dreaming of...

We aren't really close to worry about it, but when you have wood floors you will inevitably have to refinish them. Our floors are so dark they almost border on being black and I've always loved the contrast against all our white furniture. But lately I've become enthralled with the idea of going white!

I know, I know. They aren't for everyone, and they do require upkeep. But when you see the loveliness of these rooms you may not think I'm entirely crazy. Close, but not entirely crazy.
