TORONTO STUDIO APARTMENT TOUR 2020

Last year I published my first Studio Apartment Tour which continues to hold the #1 spot of the most watched video on my channel (157k+ views!). The layout was ideal for relaxing after a tough day at work or entertaining a couple of friends on the couch. I decided to rearrange my apartment to be more “social isolation” friendly. I pushed my bed in front of the TV because binge watching Netflix is now a past time and I carried my desk near the window so I can look outside from time to time while I work from home. I love the new layout, but let me know what you think! Enjoy my updated Toronto apartment tour below.

10 EASY APARTMENT DECORATING IDEAS

You’re at home a lot (hopefully) and likely procrastinating when it comes to hanging up wall art that’s been chillin’ on the closet floor since 2018.. you know who you are.  Time to dust it off because IT’S THEIR TIME TO SHINE! Decorating the space we spend the most time in is SO important for our productivity, mood, and mental health. Every art piece, photo, and plant in my studio apartment makes me “feel joy” (lol, thanks Marie Kondo). Even though my living space is essentially one big room (the fridge is only an arms length away from the bed) I love that it is intentionally decorated in a way that is bright, airy, and makes me feel ok with being a homebody. In the video below I show you tips and tricks on how to easily add colour, art, and inspiration to any size space.

WTF I’VE BEEN DOING DURING SOCIAL ISOLATION

Hello friends, how are you? ❤️ It’s been a tough time over the past few weeks, COVID-19 has literally put the whole world on pause. Nothing feels normal and there’s nothing normal about this situation (this is a daily reminder to myself, wanted to remind you too). It’s wild to think that we’re living in history and everyday people have been losing their lives, jobs, and.. well.. their sanity from social isolation. Before I get into it, below is a creative I think is important to share from @bethdrawsthings. I’ve been staying inside, trying to keep busy as much as I can but also giving myself permission to just chill TF out. Twice a week I’ll go for a run in the morning and that usually makes me feel accomplished and starts my day off on a good note. I’ve been staying with Mark at his place (my boyfriend) for the past week or so and it’s nice to have the company. We just finished watching McMillions which is a documentary series about the McDonald’s …

MODERN MAP ART: TORONTO

Whenever someone asks where I’m from, which is often, I say with all of my Canadian pride: TUR-ON-OH! They nod their head and say (in a few octaves higher to sound slightly more interested than they actually are) “oh cool!” and proceed to comment one of the following.. Aren’t people really nice there? Do you know Drake? How much snow do you get in the winter? Did you play ice hockey? You have a cute Prime Minister, what’s his name again? The questions might get repetitive but, I don’t mind. I truly get warm and fuzzies when I talk the diversity of the city I love, how shitty our hockey team is, and the greatness that are timbits and double-doubles. Last month, Modern Map Art reached out and asked if I would be interested in a print of one of their city grid maps. My heart skipped a beat. YES! YES I DO! The sleek, matte design now hangs wonderfully above my desk and every time I glance at it *cue* all the feels. I’m thousands of miles away from the …
