Fabulous Friday Find! it is, once again that good buddy ol' pal-Friday!  I don't know about you, but I REALLY didn't want to get out of bed this morning, but somehow I managed:)  Yes, it's all about the bed these longer days and nights & I love a layered, fluffy bed that you can hardly find your way out  This is the dreamy picture that started the inspiration:

So today, for many reasons, I am really loving this bedding from Eileen Fisher Washed Linen Collection from Garnet Hill.  The colours are to die for and remind me of a retreat somewhere...ahhhh...

These beds make me happy♥

Happy Friday!

Sapadilla Soap Co. Giveaway!

Today I have teamed up with Sapadilla Soap Co. to give you an amazing eco-friendly & fantastic smelling giveaway!  If you haven't heard of the Sapadilla Soap Co. you are in for a treat, because not only are they locally made right here in Burnaby, BC., but they are members of the 1% for the Planet group which basically means that 1% of their sales are donated to a network of over 2700 environmental organizations worldwide!  So you ask, what are their products and why are they so great?  Well let me count the ways...

  • Made with 100% pure essential oil aromas which not only smell amazingly wonderful, but have powerful antiseptic properties and mood-lifting benefits
  • Contain plant-based, biodegradable and non-toxic ingredients like palm and coconut oil, and vegetable glycerin to name a few, which are both environmentally & skin friendly. 
  • Keeping it simple is what they do best.  From ingredients to design to selection, simpler is better.  Why spend time trying to find a cleaner for every room in your home?  The All-Purpose Cleaner is just that for a reason. 
Self-proclaimed "Kind-Lifer", Alicia Silverstone even offers the Grapefruit & Bergamot cleaners to her readers and fans, and chooses this as her "kind" cleaner of choice!  I personally have been a user since 2011 when I discovered these products at my local grocery store, and am now a user for life♥
With four great products to choose from, I have chosen to give away their Countertop Cleanser & the All-Purpose Cleaner, paired with my Jac&Jil dish cloths!  I am happy to let you know there will be two winners!  I couldn't decide on which scent to giveaway, even though there are three heaven like scents, but I decided on the Grapefruit & Bergamot with my NEW Tangerine dish cloths as one giveaway and the second will be the Rosemary & Peppermint with my NEW Sage dish cloths.

Grapefruit & Bergamot

Rosemary & Peppermint

To win all you need to do is like us on facebook here, follow our blog and leave a comment below for each!  You must check out the Sapadilla Soap Co. website here and tell me in a separate comment what you like the best about this company.  That's it!

The giveaway closes on March 29, 2012 at 12:01 PST and the two winners will be chosen at random and announced here on the blog March 30, 2012!  

Good luck and who knew green cleaning could be such a beautiful thing?

Dippity Do!

Right now I am loving all the wonderful Spring colours that are popping up, both pastels & neons and I'm happy to say (this IS coming from a "WHITE SPACE" lover don't forget), that I'm finally embracing colour people!  I will be definitely adding some of these gorgeous hues around my home and in my life♥.  If you've already made that step and aren't afraid of colour, I applaud you...Yay!!  For me, I'm just dipping my toes in it for starters (not literally)...I'm talking about this current obsession of mine-the dipped paint kind!  It's a great place to start for chickens like myself, lol...Don't judge me!  Dipped spoons, cups, furniture, fabric & even jewelry...the possibilities are endless-take a look!

What would you dip?

Stick it out and don't give up!  Enjoy your weekend and here's to you all!♥

The Closetnista

If only my closet will look like this when I'm done...sigh...

  As you know, I am working on my closet makeover right now.  I definitely needed a bit of help in the wardrobe organization department...gulp, yup I did.  With hoards (get it?), of articles & how to's out there, I came upon the lovely ladies of The Closetnista.  I hit the jackpot!  It was like the universe answered my exact questions and issues that I had had and a huge weight felt like it had been lifted.  Yippee!  

I love their steps on how to organize, and they couldn't be simpler~and I LOVE simple!  Anyone can do this!  Click on the video below for their great tips and tricks they share with their readers.  

Additional tips from Tara & Liz:

1. Don't put your suits together.  Hang the pieces separately so you can actually get use out of all the pieces.

2. Hanging necklaces & bracelets as art on the wall can free up space in the actual closet, keeping it clutter free and looking pretty.  

3. Lighting.  Use soft lighting, not harsh fluorescent bulbs which really will illuminate the things you probably don't want to.  

4. Hang a floor length mirror or lean it up against the wall so you check yourself and look your best before leaving the house.  You don't want to put on that skirt inside out!  

Be sure to check out The Closetnista website for all their great advice.  You'll be glad you did!

Fabulous Friday Find

I've been thinking about my walls lately.  Well to be more precise, ART on my walls in fact.  I came across this amazing artist and her watercolour prints recently, just by fluke and absolutely love her vibrant and quirky prints.  She does a bit of everything.  From abstract to portraits, she is one very talented lady in my opinion and can I just say...very funky!  You can take a look at her website here to find out more.  

These are some of my favourites of Marta can't help but be happy looking at these!  

Have a great weekend!  

Happy Friday!

Fabulous Friday Find

My head has sort of been in the clouds this week to be honest.
Image via Pinterest

Not much has caught my eye that I really wanted to share for today's FFF.  Sometimes it's just like that, accompanied by a lot of ups and downs.  Too much on the mind, and not enough finds.  While we're on the subject of finds, I have found some pretty interesting stuff on Pinterest-which is sort of like design porn (can I say that word here?)-just not enough FAB this week for me personally though.  If you have the slightest curiosity about it and haven't checked it out yet, I highly recommend heading on over.  Yes, obviously you can find me there somedays.  

I do hope to come back with a bang next week & share some absolutely FABULOUS finds with you...until then, have a great great weekend!  

Happy Friday!
