Right now all I want is to be in a space that is clean, sparse, and minimal. Not cluttered with dog toys sprawled over the floors and pee pads in every nook of the house. I swear one of these days I am going to do a huge purge of my (and Dave’s) belongings and live like a Scandinavian.

It’s been way too long since my last post. Many things have happened since which are the reasons to blame for the long hiatus; new job, home renos, and a new puppy and probably more but less significant events. I’m not completely back to blogging regularly as I’d like but I’m going to try my best to keeping this up-to-date with some of my weekly finds that are worth talking about.
That aside, I decided to start a new ‘blog’ of mine… It’s more of a personal diary of images that I have taken with my phone. A common theme of photos at the moment are my dogs Marty (1 y/o) and Bruce (10 wks) since they keep me so entertained. I’m by no means a photographer but I thought it would be a good idea to treasure some of life moments and be able to view them in a gallery of some kind. So voila! Jo Snaps!
Holy smokes. If I had Heidi Merrick’s Spring 2012 collection, I think I would be pretty much set for life. I particularly enjoy all the bright yellows and camels, hot pinks, and oranges. My favorite look by far are the bright colour block dresses, I want em both. This is just half of her collection (my favourites are shown below). See more at Heidi Merrick’s .

Even though my own wedding is over, it’s still exciting to come across wedding related topics such as dresses. These beautiful gowns designed by Parisian wedding dress designer, Laure de Sagazan, are refreshing, simple but elegant. Perfect for a outdoor, summer bohemian chic themed wedding.

Adeline Adeline is a bicycle boutique situated in New York City that sells some really pretty bikes. There is something kind of fun but romantic about strolling into town on a vintage inspired bicycle like these. They bring cycling back to where its not only for taking you to point A to point B, but for a relaxing ride for pleasure. I will need to spruce up my cycling skills before I invest in something like this but for now, I will continue dream.
