HOW TO MAKE POUR OVER COFFEE

Caffeine is life and it’s a work from home essential, so I wanted to pass on the knowledge I recently gained on how to make pour over coffee at home! Pour over coffee accentuates the flavors & aromas of coffee and allows you to really personalize your perfect brew. Funny story: When I was a student at university, I used to take my coffee with 4 milks & 4 sugars (crazy right?!). I partially blame the coffee at the accounting firm I worked at, it was weak & tasted horrible so the milk & sugar was a must. But, overtime,…

SPRING

Flowers for Spring?! Groundbreaking! Did you know that having flowers in the house generates happiness and instantly elevates your mood, which in turn reduces stress & anxiety? I decorated my living room with fresh blooms this Spring to bring in some of that positive energy and felt the benefits 1st hand. Every time I look at the bouquet, I smile and can’t help saying out loud: “they’re so beautiful”. They bring a sense of of peace and calm in my living room and they perfectly complement my Cozey couch and the entire living decor. When picking flowers, I tend to…

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEAS

In case you’re in need of some Mother’s Day Gift Ideas, I put together a list of my top favorite gifts! Mother’s Day should not be the only time we cherish our mamas, we should do it daily – calling them, texting them, sharing our lives with them and showering them with gifts whenever we get a chance, but I think that having one day dedicated to celebrate all the selflessness, all the energy, all the love and all the amazing things our moms have done for us over the years is extremely important. Personally, I owe everything to my…

WHITE SOFA

Thinking of getting a sofa? Considering a white sofa perhaps? I already introduced you to my new Cozey white sofa in this post here, but it’s been 6 months that I’ve been testing it out and I wanted to give you guys an honest review of this sofa, which will hopefully help you with your search. Style: This Cozey sofa is beautiful & the ivory color and fabric texture look and feel very luxe. It’s definitely the focal point of the room and the 1st thing your eyes gravitate towards when you enter the room – it’s a shining star,…

HOLIDAY DINNER

The Holidays are just around the corner & even though they will look a little different this year, we can still share in it’s joy & magic by cherishing the time spent with close family through an intimate Holiday dinner & gift giving! I’ve partner with William Ashley to create a table setup with some entertaining essentials that you can find in their Holiday Gift Guide. I chose these stunning Lenox Set of 4 chargers in light brown wood as the base for this table setup. They are luxurious and really elevate the entire look. I’ve been obsessed with white &…

CAR – LEASE OR BUY

Car – Lease or Buy? That is the question! I bought my 1st car in 2010 and it was one of the happiest days of my life – not even kidding. At the time, I was working as an auditor at an auditing firm and I was visiting clients daily. Not an easy task when you don’t have a car, trust me! There were times when I had to take a subway & 3 different buses to get to my client, dragging this brick called a laptop with me (they did not make them so light and airy back then)!…

COZEY LIVING ROOM

Toronto is the land of small spaces! However, after living in this city for a couple of years, you are forced to become creative, think outside of the box and learn how to maximize the space! Ultimately, the key to making it work is finding the right furniture & decorate it so that it looks bigger. I’ve been looking to upgrade my sofa for some time now as the one we owned was outdated and frankly way too big for the small condo we moved into this year. The problem was that I could not find the perfect size white…
