Vanessa Ægirsdóttir: Beautiful Fur Jewelry

Vanessa Ægirsdóttir opened the doors of her Whitehorse shop in 2018. I noticed her beautifully crafted fur jewelry a year or so later when we followed each other on Instagram.  My husband and I received a few of her pieces as wedding gifts and I was instantly smitten. Vanessa creates beautiful jewelry using Yukon furs and copper and silver.

“It is important that I use furs that are sourced from Indigenous traplines in the Yukon so that you can be assured that every fur is traceable and ethically harvested.”

Love That Bag: Salvatore Ferragamo Tan Mini Fiamma Crossbody review

“I like my money right where I can see it… hanging in my closet.”

– Carrie Bradshaw

I’m a bag girl at heart. Shoes, while nice, don’t really do it for me. I like coats as well, but a gorgeous handbag really makes me swoon. For years, and years, and years I’ve pinned and Googled and stalked second hand sites in search of my dream bag. I don’t know that I’ve found it yet… maybe I have more than one dream bag?

Lush Christmas 2019: a review of a few of the goodies from the holiday collection

Hello!

Hello! It’s been a minute. Let me tell you why. Last year I pushed myself to produce one blog post per week no matter what. I accomplished that with one or two exceptions. The problem is that it started to feel like a chore, rather than the fun hobby I want blogging to be. As soon as something starts to feel like work I lose interest. I’ve decided to change my approach to blogging this year. This year I’m only going to write a blog post when I feel inspired and enthusiastic about it. That way I feel that I will be able to produce better content without getting overwhelmed or burned out. I do have some fun posts planned for the near future so stay tuned! In the meantime, if you are desperate for a Poutine fix, I post fairly regularly on Instagram so feel free to head over! With all of that said, welcome to my second post of 2020 – a review of some of the products from the Lush 2019 Christmas Collection (even though, dear reader, it is March)!

The Green Holiday Gift Guide: sustainable gifts you can feel good about giving to everyone on your list

I enjoy putting gift guides together, and I enjoy reading other bloggers’ gift guides. However, I am aware that there is some controversy surrounding them. With that in mind, I decided to put together a green holiday gift guide including experiences, sustainable fashion, sustainable beauty items, and a few other bits. I hope you find this useful! Let’s dive in, shall we?
