Eclectic spring home tour

It’s finally spring, and while the world is unstable, our homes are more than ever out safe and calm spaces- and so I think that decorating for spring is even more important than ever! So today I’m sharing my spring home tour in collaboration with some of my blogging friends ( make sure to check their homes!)

This year I decided to embrace my romantic decor affiliations, and add flowers literally everywhere- including on the furniture! While I know this is not for everyone, me and my kids we love being surrounded by colours and flowers!

When you’ll step inside our house you’ll be greeted buy our colorful entryway- I have recently painted these doors pink, and decided to add a wreath inside our entryway this year. Now every time I pass by I have something to smile about! I found these decorative surface tatoos in Dollar Store last week, and while I wasn’t sure at first what I’ll do with them, now I’m so happy I decided to get them. It took me thirty minutes and a total of 4$ to transform my entryway drawers chest for spring! Let me know what you think of this furniture!

In the living room I switched winter pillows for lighter pink spring onces and I added more flowers! Also, my mantel is now my favourite home vignette.

Then in my kitchen I have simply cleaned my open shelves, I added more tulips and a fresh new kitchen towel. I’m all about keeping things fresh, adding more pink accessories and keeping things simple in my kitchen this season!

I hope that my home tour can inspire you to decorate your home for spring too now! And please make sure to check my talented friends beautiful homes too!

Spring looks for less

spring looks for less

Spring is finally here! And for us living in Canada it finally means we can switch those winter boots for a cute pair of peep toes and big furry coats for light bomber jackets!

Though to be honest, fashion was something I disliked since having babies: I didn’t fit in the “perfect body” standards, suddenly I got a muffin top and I had to buy nursing-friendly tops only ( at least I’m over with that part for now!). And I had so many other expenses! So I lost the pleasure in dressing all together.

But since I try to be more mindful in my everyday, I realized I can still find outfits that’ll make me feel good. And that dressing our bodies is also an important part of self-care! So if you too feel stuck, I say start with the little things that’ll make you smile, look for colors that make your soul sing, and accessories that make you want to go out!

So I have partnered with Giant Tiger to bring you two spring looks: for less. Two looks in which I feel ready for spring and happy, and I’m sure you would too!


Le printemps est finalement arrivé! Cela veut dire qu’on peut finalement échanger nos grossses bottes d’hiver pour de mignonnes chaussures de printemps, et remplacer les manteaux chauds par de légers « bomber jackets » à la mode.

Mais il faut que j’avoue, lorsque je suis devenue une maman, j’ai arrêté d’aimer la mode. Mon corps a changé, le ventre a poussé, il a fallu que je porte des hauts pour allaiter ( au moins ça s’est fini!). En plus, avec des enfants il y a tellement d’autres dépenses!

Mais récemment, j’essaie de prendre plus soin de moi et j’ai réalisé que s’habiller joliment a un impact important sur comment je me sens. Et que s’est une partie importante du bien-être général. Alors, si toi aussi tu te sens coincée, commence par de petits détails qui vont te faire sourire, cherche les couleurs qui te rendent heureuse et les accessoires qui donnent le gout de sortir plus! 

Alors, en collaboration avec Tigre Géant, j’ai préparé deux looks printaniers pas chers.  Des agencements dans lesquels je me sens bien et prête pour le printemps!  Et vous le serez aussi!

I just love the details on that blouse! And this long skirt the powder pink shade of the season is the most comfortable and soft piece I have tried in a while! And you just can’t go wrong with florals , pink and a bit of bohemian flair for spring! Also, bomber jackets are the bomb of the spring!(Pun intended!) And Giant Tiger has so many to chose from!


J’aime tellement les détails sur cette chemise! Et cette jupe de couleur rose de saison est la plus confortable et douce que j’ai porté depuis longtemps! En plus, on ne se trompe jamais en combinant motifs fleuris, un peu de rose et une touche bohème. Et le « bomber jacket », c’est la bombe du printemps ( hihi) et Tigre Géant a une belle sélection!

And I love how spring fashion this year is full of bohemian prints and accessories! Be it that white shirt, or these earnings, I’m so happy I could have find so many lovely bohemian options!


Et je dois dire que cette année, j’adore tout simplement comment la mode du printemps est pleine d’inspirations bohème. Quelle chance d’avoir tout ça pour un si petit prix.

And as for this tunic, it’s my new go-to choice! Thanks to that belt, it gives you the illusion of waist, while being most comfortable piece of summer clothing! I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing it throughout the summer with sleeves rolled up too! And my new favorite: this blue cross body bag! I just love the punch of color ton the strap! And it goes with literally everything!


Parlons maintenant de cette robe tunique! C’est mon passe-partout en ce moment et je suis certaine que je vais la reporter pendant l’été aussi ( en roulant les manches!). Elle est très confortable et parfaite pour toutes les silhouettes! Et aussi: cette bourse, qui je vous jure, marche avec tout tout tout!

Honestly, I know too well the struggle of dressing that mama-body, and of staying within a budget! But I also know now, that our bodies are the vessels of our souls, and that dressing yourselves in comfortable, and pretty clothes is such an important part of self-care. And when it can be done on a budget, then I call it a win-win!


Tout le look: Collection Lily Morgan, exclusive à Tigre Géant.

Honnêtement, je connais très bien la difficulté de s’habiller après avoir eu des enfants, et à l’intérieur du budget familial. Mais si notre corps est le vaisseau de notre âme, alors s’habiller joliment c’est prendre soin de soi. Et si on peut le faire avec un petit budget, je pense que c’est une vrai victoire.
