Hey girls!

Happy Thursday! As usual, I’m sharing a short Q & A sesh with you guys, with answers to some of the questions I get in my DMs on Instagram!

Can you share a hair tutorial? Do you have any favourite products for your hair?

Yes, I will absolutely share a hair tutorial soon! I will make sure to do a post on all things hair, and I’ll share my favourite products in here as well. Subscribe on the right hand side to get on my email list so that you don’t miss the post!

I’m new to blogging and I’m overwhelmed. I’m in the lifestyle niche and I don’t know what people want to see. Suggestions?

Starting a blog can be so overwhelming. My biggest advice is that you really listen to your audience and figure out what they WANT to see from you. How can you add value to your community? Even if you only have 500 followers, pay attention to what they like. Get to know them better. Ask them questions in your insta stories to get a better understanding of their interests! There is nothing more important than trying to SERVE your followers, and they are the best people to listen to when trying to decide on content creation.

What was your job before you started blogging?

I graduated from University with a Psychology degree and worked in the mental health field for about 6 years. I loved it and thought I would stay in that industry for my entire career. I then went on maternity leave when I got pregnant with Mila, and continued to stay at home raising my girls for four years (I started blogging last year, when I was still a stay at home mom). Once I started my blog, I became incredibly interested in Social Media and took a position as a Client Campaign Manager while building my own blogging business on the side. I’m so glad I made that leap!

What’s your favourite thing to do in your spare time?

There are so many things I like to do in my spare time (which, lets be honest, is few and far in between when you’re a mom)! With that said, I love going out for a nice dinner with friends and family or entertaining in our backyard on a nice summer evening. I actually really enjoy working out. I find it’s such great ‘me’ time and I always feel so good once I’m finished. 

I love being busy. Sometimes I wish that I could sit around and completely relax, but I have a hard time with this. On the weekends, I like taking the girls to different places and filling up our day (Nick very much prefers being at home, relaxing). 

Where is your shed from?

When I have this shed in my insta stories, I get this question asked a LOT. This shed is from Home Hardware, and we painted it a dark blue from their Beauti Tone paint line (and used white trim for some contrast). I really didn’t want it to resemble a typical shed, and was more-so going for the look of a cute little house. 


Thanks again for all of your constant love, support, and questions. Email me or contact me on Instagram for future questions or comments. I love connecting with you!

Lots of love,

Alexandra XO

Happy Friday everyone! I can’t believe that Mother’s Day is only a week away! Before I had kids, I used to be super prepared for these types of holidays. I would have gifts picked out months in advance, and well now that has completely changed. I have become the last minute shopper, it is what […]

The truth is, Brielle has always been a brutal sleeper. Unlike her older sister, she has never been a great napper and still wakes throughout the night. So, when Nested Bean contacted me and asked if I would try their Zen Sack (developed to promote a restful sleep), I was hopeful. Brielle has worn sleep sacks […]

Let’s face it, there are so many infant products on the market. Sometimes the over abundance of gadgets, toys, and infant care can make it nearly impossible to figure out what products are worth buying. After going through the infant and baby stage twice, I’m excited to share five of my go-to baby products that […]

I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally share with you Brielle’s nursery reveal. It’s been a few months in the making, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Some of you may be wondering why I decided to “transform” Brielle’s bedroom now…I mean, she is already 18 months old. Well, Brielle was […]
