The Monday Blues - N°2

Happy Monday All!

Due to all the requests we have been receiving from our previous The Monday Blues post, we have decided to bring you The Monday Blues...well...every Monday :)

We will be changing it up and featuring different items of blue each and every week.  So be sure to come back next week and see what we have come up with. 

This week we decided to help those of you dealing with the winter blues and head for the seas of blue! 

There are so many beautiful places all over the world and travelling to all these places would well...cost a FORTUNE.  So, since I am not swimming in a vault full of money like Scrooge McDuck, I will have to sit back relax and enjoy these beautful sights though pictures, and add these locations to my ever growing list of places to visit. 

Enjoy!!!

Artemis' Top 5 Pinterest Finds of the Week - N°1

So after a very productive day of work, re-shooting product photos for our Etsy Store and brainstorming upcoming blog posts. Apollo and I came up with the grand idea of turning our top 10 Pinterest finds into Top 5 finds secretly chosen by each of us...Reason?...Well Apollo and I have the scary habit of picking and liking the same items :-) so as a running test, we want to see how often we picked the same item!!! (But for your sake we won't show you the same item twice :-) We just like seeing how often we are right!!! I guess that's why we work really well together! We will be sure to keep you updated on our running stats!:-)

So here are my top 5 finds of the week..enjoy!!!!

It's a Hairy Situation

Everyone has it, unfortunately some have too much and some don't have enough. If yours is curly you want straight and if you have straight you want curly....what am I talking about....HAIR of course! There are so many different things you can do with hair; braids or ponies, short or long and everything in between.

This season there seems to be a huge range of styles that are in, from centre parts to loose waves to the "wet look" which I simply don't understand how that is a look???.  I am happy to say however that fringe is still in.  Whether you go side swept or opt for a full  fringe there are many different fringe styles for all face shapes. Check out some of my favorite hairstyles with fringe. 

Seeing some of these just might make you get the itch, to book an appointment with you stylist and revamp your look in time for spring.


My two all time favorites styles right now couldn't be more different.

First off Michelle Williams with her adorable pixie cut and short sideswept bang.


And of course Zooey Deschanel's long wavy hair with full fringe. 
I am absolutley in LOVE with her style not only her hair but her clothing choices as well.

Before and After - Kitchen

We moved into our dream home almost two years ago now and one of the first things we wanted to change was the kitchen. We didn't want to do a whole kitchen remodel, as the bones and layout of the room were fine. So to change the room and make it suit our needs and style I decided to grab my paintbrush and get to work. By painting the walls the cupboards and backsplash with CIL Realife Paint, changing out the hardware, changing out the window treatments and adding in the bar stools as well as the island (which was a gift from my parents) we were able to completely change the look of our kitchen. For approximately $250.00 (not including the island which was $699.00 from ikea) our kitchen went from drab and boring to modern, hip, clean and fresh...exactly what we were looking for!

BEFORE

AFTER

I purchased the clear acrylic bar stools from Bouclair.  However the first store that I went to only had one stool.  So the helpful sales lady called another store for me and all they had left was the floor model, so they set it aside for me and when I went to pick it up and got it for HALF PRICE!!  What a great deal!


I made the curtains out of fabric I purchased from one of my favorite stores....IKEA.  It was an excellent price, I think it was only about $5.00 a metre at most. 

Next on the kitchen redo list will be the lighting...so stay tuned :)

Romantic Mini Victorian Cottage

Through my many travels...on the web that is :) I came upon this absolutely GORGEOUS Mini Victorian Cottage.  This little "cottage" is only 9'x10', was previously a hunting cabin, and is hidding inside a spectacular getaway retreat! 

This little jewel has a sitting room, dining area and a lovely bedroom loft.  There is no kitchen or bathroom, but who needs that when you have all that beauty to look at.  The owner used vintage columns, flooring, and windows to complete the look and did all the carpentry herself.  Most of the stunning pieces in her cottage (like the chandelier and mirror) were flea market and garage sale finds.  And to top it all off the only way to gain access to the cottage is across rocks strategically placed across a running stream.










 

Now after seeing this I don't want to hear anyone say that their home is too small to pull off an exceptional look.  If this can be achieved in an area as small as 9'x10', anything can be accomplished if you put your time, energy and passion into it.  If I am ever lucky enough to have a little girl in my future I would love to be able to create her a little cottage like the one seen here.  I know when I was a child I would have given my arm and leg for a play house like that!  Heck, what am I talking about, I would STILL give my arm and leg for a little getaway like that :)  Simply Stunning!
