Mother’s Day Giveaway!

I don’t know about you but I have yet to buy a gift for my mom for mother’s day. My sister and I usually both pitch in and give my mom something together. My mom is easy to gift so we will just have to brainstorm a little and find that special gift for her.

If you are looking to buy something for yourself (yes it is ok to gift yourself!) or your mom for Mother’s Day, Etsy is a great place to shop. For those who are not familiar with Etsy, it is an online marketplace where you can find some great handmade gifts.

So for those of you who have waited to buy something (procrastinating can have some pros!), you are in for a treat. I have collaborated with two awesome shops to hold a Mother’s Day giveaway on Instagram.

Clay N Wire creates some amazing modern and unique polymer clay jewelry.

Etsy Market @ Evergreen Brickworks

1695_Brick-Works_Market_Social_R1v1 (1) (2)

Etsy in partnership with Evergreen is bringing a unique collection of handmade and vintage Etsy shops to a market at Evergreen Brickworks. There will also be a farmer’s market and local food vendors alongside the Etsy market. Let’s not forget the 11th Annual Cask-Conditioned Beer Festival that continues on Sunday as well. Beer + Handmade + Local + Fall weather will make for one great Sunday outing.

We have curated a collection of 16 artisans that will be participating at the Etsy market along with us. Some of them were our neighbours at the August market at Evergreen Brickworks. We met Rovena from Handmade by Rovena there. She is back this Sunday with her unique collection of handmade paper goods including her chemistry inspired cards.


We came across others like Lola’s Pocket at a handmade market here in Toronto. Their scrabble key chain caught our eyes instantly and it hangs alongside my husband’s car keys now. They will be back as well with all their “darling little things.”


Yet others we have featured here are new to us but still part of the Etsy community. Etsy shop Dainty Bits And Pieces donates proceeds towards cat rescue. We love gardening and eating organic food and if you do too, then Etsy shop Cubits might interest you. Felicia, the artisan behind Citchen Candle Co. creates all natural soy candles and organizes a local market called Trinity Bellwoods Flea here in Toronto.

You can find links to all these curated finds here on Etsy.etsy-at-evergreen-brickworks

See you at the market! You can find more information about the Etsy market here.

On Trend ~ Cactus Inspired Fashion

A few months ago my husband and I took a trip to Grand Canyon in Arizona. I was instantly mesmerized by the canyon’s immense vastness and simplicity. It was easy to get lost in the minimalism and beauty of the desert landscape.


It does not come as a surprise that cacti and succulents are trending right now. Fashion has also taken inspiration from these desert plants to create some cactus friendly prints this season. Here are my ten picks for cacti inspired fashion chosen from some beautiful Etsy shops.

Crop Top By So Effing Cute

This crop top really is effing cute! The lime green cacti print is eye catching and fun.


Cactus Earrings By LLL Designs

These hand painted earrings are a perfect mix of quirky and cute.


Cacti Swimsuit By Summer In Italy

Italian made one piece limited edition swimsuit has a cutout back and a unique design. Can we say bold and beautiful?


Cacti Tattoos By Smash Tat

Going to a summer festival this year? Why not accessorize with these temporary cacti tattoos. Set of 5 for some boho charm.


Cotton T-Shirt By Yeah Bunny

Yeah Bunny, a shop from Poland has some bold and fun prints in their shop including this white and black cacti print T-shirt.


iPhone Case By Field Trip

Why not have a phone case that is full of friendly prickly pears? Made by a fellow Canadian located in British Columbia.


Maxi Dress By Thief And Bandit

Tote Bag By Amelie Mancini

This bag effortlessly combines linen and leather for a great summer look.


Cacti Leggings By Simka Sol

Look fabulous and get a great workout in these cacti print jersey leggings.


Statement Necklace By Fable and Lore

The maker of this necklace said it best, “Friendly and prickle-free, this hand-sawed cactus is a statement piece that’s equal parts adorable + badass. From road-trippin’ to coffee-sippin’, this cactus friend is up for sartorial adventures any day.”

How To Pull Off An Anchor Inspired Outfit
