Hey everyone, I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend and are taking advantage of this beautiful weather. Here in Ottawa it’s absolutely beautiful! It’s going to be 28 degrees Celsius (I think that’s in the 80s for you in the US.) It’s been pouring rain here for a few weeks so we deserve some sunshine!!
I’m riding shot gun today with the he 3 kids sleeping in the back. We’re headed to the lake for the rest of the weekend for some quality family time. Is it just me, but does the time fly by when you spend the weekends at home. Between trips to the park, to naps, to playdates and nursing, before you know it it’s Monday morning. It’s crazy! As a new mom I’ve really learned to take care of me and that means being around family and friends that can help out so I can get a few minutes to myself. Whether that’s painting my nails, reading a magazine or simply catching up on sleep. That’s my number one advice to moms. Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed, because you’ll soon resent your lifestyle and that’s no good for you, your partner and most of all the kids. That’s why we go up to the cottage. My sanity. Plus it’s beautiful. Hopefully I’ll be able to do a post on home decor at the cottage this summer. My mom did a great job decorating it and so I HAVE to share it. Stay tuned for that.
Holy ramble Isabelle! Ok now back to business haha forgive my rant!
So, let me get back to what I came on here for. Straw bags. Who’s not a fan right? If you’re in instagram or follow any fashion bloggers, you know that straw bags are in right now. I’m obsessed with them and have a few myself. This trend is one that will last throughout the summer, that’s for sure. Perfect for moms on the go, beach bums and pretty much everyone! Even Adèle is sporting a cute one this summer that holds all her stuff. They come in all shapes in sizes and most have cute accents to them that’ll make your outfit pop! I’ll show you later which one I’ve picked for myself!
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
