So swooning over the new moulding 🤩 I don’t share a ton of interior projects and DIY on here but if you guys want to see more of that let me know! This mint cabinet was also a DIY upcycle! I’d love to share more home shenanigans if you guys are interested 🤩
There is nothing, I repeat nothing people (!!!!!) that I don’t love more than a purty cactus in a matte blush planter. It is SO easy to spruce up a boring old corner in your home, with any cactus, leaving you an instant Cali vibe🌵

I think there’s often a notion that for artists, painting or creating is where there is always joy, success, and satisfaction. That’s totally something I had idealized for myself when I started painting. Even looking around in Instagram at artists I found inspiring, I imagined perfectly imperfect studios and a masterpiece always on the easel. And of course it was a given that they were painting every day with calm and ease. I think one of the main things I know now is despite the formulas social media tell us, the behind the scenes for every artist is entirely unique. I can’t always bring myself to paint every day. Some days I can paint for hours. During one session, I can feel completely defeated and ready to look for a job with healthcare and benefits, and during the best ones, everything feels like magic and I can’t imagine wasting my life on anything else. This summer I’m signing up for a six week abstract acrylic course and I want to dig in DEEP. Abstract to me is all about the process, throwing your whole body and soul into each mark. I’m super excited about the class but I’m also giving myself a little grace, because knowing my own process I won’t be able to give all of myself every time. But that’s ok! I’m learning to let things fall outside of my (often strict) plans for myself because art is not the place for that. 📷 @sarahbeckerphoto
This space looked SO different a month ago. The round mirror, white frames and new light fixture make it feel fresh, more modern, and it just feels good to love a space that you used to ignore day after day 😂 I used my budget money for the light, cash for frames and mirror, and most everything else I already had, it just wasn’t being used! Crazy!!
We’ve been toying with the idea of getting a King size bed for months now, between the two pups and us, our Queen is feeling mighty cozy and you know I can’t kick the pups out... 🤦🏻♀️. Only problem is our bedroom may be a bit tight with a King and side tables... do it for the aesthetic or for the comfort? Haha
Though the goal is to reduce indoor toxicants as much as possible, sometimes this becomes difficult due to budget, timeline, resources, lack of awareness or the reality that many of these exposures, such as EMFS, are ubiquitous and out of our control. In a previous post, we discussed ways to reduce EMF exposure, but for those sources not within our control, diet and lifestyle become an important component in protecting our bodies to its damaging effects, particularly in children in which developing nervous systems are more susceptible, and will have a longer lifetime exposure than adults. Studies are showing that intracellular calcium increases with exposure to EMFs, which leads to cellular damage and puts us at risk for various chronic diseases and disorders. As magnesium competes with calcium, increasing magnesium-rich foods (swiss chard, beet greens, spinach, dark chocolate 🍫 ) or even supplementing with magnesium is a great way to regulate calcium levels. Stimulating hormesis, through sauna use, exercise, or foods that boost the NRF2 pathway: omega-3’s, sulfur compounds from allium veggies (garlic, onion, leek, chives) as well as cruciferous veggies (🥦broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower, brussel sprouts) are also important to incorporate into your lifestyle. Our homes are a way of setting up the kind of lifestyle we want to lead - by the food we bring home, the devices and technologies we use and the way we install them, as well as what we incorporate into our space to support healthy living. • • • • • #homedetox#holisticdesign#holisticnutrition#interior#interiordecor#design#healthyhomes#toxicfree#wellnessathome#customhome#livewellfeelwell#whealthyandco#toxicfreeliving#wellness#health#livegreen#lifestyle#tcmlivingwell#wellnesstrends#iamwellandgood#ecohome#emfprotection#cleanliving#apartmenttherapy#howyouhome#emfdetox#pursuepretty#torontovibe#luxuryhomes
2nd most embarrassing moment of my life: at my wedding, saying my vows, I said “I DEREK TAKE THEE SUSANNE” and didn’t realize what I’d said until my officiant asked if I wanted to try again HAHAHAHA and then to top it all off my husband dipped me a little too low on the kiss and *literally* almost dropped me. Sigh. Anyone else have a super embarrassing hilarious moment they’d like to share?? Please??
