Pumpkin Patchin’ It

fullsizerender-18A couple of weekends ago the weather was beautiful, sunny and Saturday ended up being a perfect fall day so we decided to take the trip to a local pumpkin farm. This isn’t something I had done when I was growing up but I knew that once I had kids of my own it was something I wanted to do with them. Continue reading

Bow Week | Shop #4 | Petite Prairie

img_6250Lastly, to round up Bow Week I am featuring a company that’s from right here in Winnipeg, Petite Prairie Kids. Katelyn is the face behind the company and has a little girl of her own so she definitely has experience in the bow department! What’s unique about Petite Prairie is that they not only make bows for your little girls but they also make bowties for your little boys! They also specialize in these gender neutral cute wild prairie child onesies, pom pom toques (perfect for fall!) and lace kimonos for both babes and mommas! Who doesn’t love to twin?! I know I’m guilty of it almost everyday.. ! 😉

Bow Week | Shop #2 | VONBON

IMG_8608The second shop I’m featuring for Bow Week is called VONBON. Not only do they make super comfy headband bows but they also make a huge range of cute kids clothing! Shop owner Jennifer just released her fall collection and I am seriously crushing on this new floral print. They also make some really adorable baby blankets. I purchased one in an older style before Ems was born and it’s the perfect weight for everyday use.

Bow Week | Shop #1 | Elle Bowtique

img_6206One of the most asked questions I get on social media is where I get Emsley’s bows from. You might notice that I very rarely post a picture of her on Instagram without a bow on her head because honestly, she is always wearing one! She has recently learnt how to put them on herself so that has also been working in my bow-wearing favour! Since we found out that our little pumpkin was going to be a girl at 20 weeks pregnant, I made it my mission to find the best bows I could for her. We have collected our fair share of bows since then and after getting the chance to try them all out over this past year I feel like I can finally share my favourites!

Each day this week I will be sharing one of my favourite small shops who make bows, because I have never actually purchased a bow from a large company store. Etsy and Instagram have been my world to find the best made bows for Emsley!

A Thanksgiving Tablescape

img_6197Last year we hosted our first Thanksgiving dinner at our house. We had never prepared a turkey before last year but since we had figured it out then, we decided that we could do it again! My husband is a great cook and is always willing to take on the majority of the cooking which allows me to really enjoy the decorating. When I created my Thanksgiving tablescape last year, I shared it on here so I decided to share this years too! Continue reading
