Lykke Li - I Follow Rivers

My love for Scandinavian music runs deep, and Swedish sweetheart Lykke Li is no exception! I heard this single while in Norway and I love it so much, I thought I would share "I Follow Rivers" from her "Wounded Rhymes" album. :) Seriously, the whole record is beautiful! Buy it!

Gotye - Don't Worry We'll Be Watching You

Digging this track today from Gotye called "Don't Worry We'll Be Watching You" from their "Making Mirrors" album. I'm actually feeling the whole album. Definitely check it out!

This track is very cool and you have to listen to it until the very end!  It's amazing and I love everything about it!

Super chill and sexy- perfect for a Sunday song. :)

In Norway! (vlog)

So I am just posting this video for you as I mentioned I never done these before, but that is a total lie! I totally forgot I reviewed a couple things this way - so this isn't so foreign to me ;) I had to talk super quiet because Edie was sleeping! Yes, I have baby hair growing out. Don't judge me. ;)

Eerie Face within the Stormclouds!

This video is insane and just so wicked at the same time! Denis Farmer of Grand Falls, New Brunswick, Canada - filmed a crazy video of what looks like a human face from his backyard.

Watch to the video to see this amazingness caught on camera! Such creepy clouds!

Foster The People: Torches - Best Album of the Year!

I can feel it!  Foster The People will be up for zillions of awards and like Arcade Fire won album of the year this past year, this band will do the same! I cannot rave about this album enough!

The production is amazing and the lyrics make my heart melt and the tracks are all around, wicked.

MGMT comes to mind when it comes to vocal effects and a little bit melodically - but I feel a little more passion and hookie-ness from these boys!

My soul just dances listening to this Los Angeles, California-based band. I am going to post in here - my favourite tracks :) (I'm sure you have all heard their single "Pumped Up Kicks") ;)

You HAVE to buy this album if you haven't already. Seriously.



Miss You - (beautiful lyrics too)

NO idea why "Broken Jaw" didn't make the actual album but you can purchase it on the itunes release which I did and LOVE!

Helene Beat (of course)

DODOcase Made in San Francisco!

Loving my DODOcase in front on my birdfeeders! 

Some of you my know my brother and his wife live in San Francisco and I wanted to pay homeage to such a lovely place by purchasing an iPad case made right in the city!

I have been eying this DODOcase since the first iPad came out, hoping it would live up to my expectations, and it has far exceeded them! The bamboo wood is highly durable, and the case in general is very slim in form and gorgeous!

It looks like a giant Moleskine journal which makes me heart it even more. The inside material is customizable in colour - as you see I chose a light pink which reminds me of tea and old Victorian tones.

I can't rave about this case enough! If you own an iPad, iPad 2, Playbook or Kindle - you should really consider this case! If you want to stash things like money or something - I suggest buying the DODOcase too! ;)

Birthday Loveliness!

Even though today Edie officially turns 11 months (insane!), I just wanted to share with you my birthday loveliness and surprise!

As most of you know, I tweeted a bunch of pics as my day went on, starting with my mom and I hitting up Fayez Beauty Spa for a manicure and pedicure to get ready for my brother's big day!

I received some lovely earrings by Stella & Dot from my mom and dad (pictured above)!

I also was blessed with cute Chloe sunglasses from Endoplasmic and Moxy that I already wrote about a few months ago in this blog.

Love them so much!

My Norwegian family got me a gift card to use while I am visiting in Norway to shop anywhere in the town of Stavanger - and I am uber excited to hit up Moods of Norway, Wolford and Ilse Jacobsen!

So excited to use it! Such a cool idea that all the stores get together to use one gift card.

I also got a cute surprise from my Norwegian sister-in-law as she knows how much I love tea and got me this really cute tea strainer from Denmark (where she presently lives) and it just makes me smile to look at. That she thought of me was really sweet!

There is this local designer that makes these really cool garden creatures using a torch - and it just has this haunting, Tim Burton-esque - very cool effect!

It's so weird that Sockboy and Mandiemoon thought of me when they saw this little Bunny in Stratford one day. I love him so much!

He reminds me of the killer bunny from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".

Love! :D

Because we are leaving soon and my number one stress for traveling is with Miss Edie, so to make things easier I got the same diaper bag as Mandiemoon (with a different pattern of course;) from Petunia Pickle Bottom called the Wistful Weekender in Rambling Rose, because it had loads more room, not to mention it's loaded with style!

So I don't have to lug more than that one bag around while we take the long-long journey. :) I am sure it will make life a little easier, as it already has for the last couple weeks of owning it!

So with me buying that bag, I was pleasantly surprised that I actually received anything from the hubby on my day! He said we were going to go on a long ride and brought a rope with him that his mother spun herself the day before at Pioneer Village (random fact that I will talk about it another post).

I was a little nervous with what he would do with a rope and driving me miles away ;)

We ended up stopping at Milestones for a nice birthday lunch a tasty dessert, and then went for a long drive ending up at a gas station in Goderich.

I thought hmmm... What could be here? This lady said "You're here for the bike!" A bike?! I softly screeched in excitement. With smiles galore as they pulled out this beautiful Norco Rio Vista to my view.

The hubby found on Kijii what seemed to be last year's model and the girl who was selling it had bought a car and no longer wanted her bike. It was in beautiful shape with a basket included! It was perfect for what I needed it for - getting little groceries for nightly dinners up the street, as walking can be a lot sometimes :)

It was such an awesome surprise as I had no idea! The crazy thing was that it was the same colour as my bike I received when I was 9 years-old, my 15-gear Supercycle bike called "Storm". That time they hid it in the trailer we had at the time and that was also a moment I will never forget - so it was nice to relive something like that again :)

I have such wonderful family and friends and just so blessed. Thank you :) xoxo
