Spicing things up, organizationally

More creative in my life and only one project at at time, my goals for this year.

I decided to start small with a task that I've been wanting to do for awhile: the spice cabinet.  Our builder put in these awesome spice drawers/cabinets on both sides of the oven.  I love them, but I haven't been using them to their potential.  I hate having to pick out every single spice every single time in order to find something.  Change needed to happen.

So I bought some cute little glass bottles (3 for 1$, yay!) with white lids from the dollar store and set out on my task.  My goal was to be able to write the spice name on the lid then have them sorted so it was much easier to find what I was looking for.

Observations
I didn't buy enough white capped bottles.
I have way less clutter now that it has been organized.
There is rhyme and reason to my madness.
I didn't organize the other side of the stove because I couldn't find anything to put there, will work on that for next week.
I like having little projects.

  1. Those drawers are so cool. Someday when we remodel our kitchen I want to put those in. I see basil and nutmeg - two of my favorite spices - this is why I like you so much!

  5. Genius to label the top of the spices! I'm quite jealous of that spice rack!

Sunshine inspired fashion

Today I'm showing you the first outfit I got on my trip to Scotland/England and it just happens to be in one of my favourite colours....yes, yellow.  I also put together some of my fave yellow picks on the interwebs for you in the above link.

I have posted a few of my fave yellow pieces before like the one with the blazer  or the one with the yellow shoes and jacket and then there is also this bag that I got in Vegas last year that always makes me swoon....


Anyway, I'm rambling....today's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it. Muahahahahha...here's sneak peak.

A blogger meet up in Toronto

It was like a weekend long blind date...... e-Harmony but for friends..... Possibly one of the craziest things I've done..... But I spent the weekend with 10 other women whom I met online. Well, except for my real life bestie on the far right. We have a group of 14 bloggers who have been collabing since the spring of 2014 and what first was simple blog fun has quickly become a sisterhood.   Last year we met in Vegas, this year we settled for Toronto and had 11 members.
Trip highlights include a bus trip with wine and Niagara Falls, a walking tour of downtown Toronto, plenty of great meals, a shopping adventure and rooftop hot tubs at night.  I could go into the details, but for me, the actual trip to Toronto wasn't why I went...the Jays weren't even playing. What brings me the most joy about this trip is the fact that women from all walks of life, all ages (we had 30, 40 and 50 somethings) with a gamut of different interests took a leap of faith and traveled to meet women…

London 1

Sunday/Monday was a blur.   It went from cruising around Toronto (that means shopping) with the little group of Blended Bloggers that were left over to heading to the airport to meet Dan and the kids then to an overnight flight to Dublin and then another 2ish hour flight to London.  At least the kids slept an hour or two, but I couldn't do it.   Currently in zombie mode.   When we got to our hotel (MalMaison Charterhouse Square) we had to nap. Well I had to anyway before I started losing it.   After an hour long family nap, Dan headed to work and I decided to take the kids out on an adventure in the neighbourhood.  We're only 850 metres from St. Paul's Cathedral and I hadn't visited it last time I was here so it was an easy pick. First I had to devise a plan to keep them engaged and because Pokemon is all they ever want, it was an easy bait.  The deal was that if they came and learned something with me, they got to have some Pokemon time in the area. It worked like a …
