Cleaning with the Dyson Cyclone V10

Now that our kitchen renovation is complete moving to the yellow house has begun. Moving is such a daunting task, I’m sure some of you can relate. A little help from my new Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute vacuum is making my move so much easier. I moved around a fair amount in my 20s, back then […]

Vote for Fynes Designs in the Jeffery Court Renovation Challenge

Things got real this week, demo week is here! After a hours of hard planning, said ‘plans’ got completely turned upside down and started to snowball. I had plans to move a thing here and put a thing there, until it grew, and it grew, and it grew. I mean that’s the thing about renovations […]

Bathroom makeup vanity

Ever spot a room that is just all kinds of wrong? Well, let me introduce the blue bathroom. It was a 9.5 on the bad scale for me, like wrong on so many levels. With just a few hours to spare I gave this bright blue space a much needed bathroom makeover… with a little spa like […]

I’m really lucky that without too much hassle I can get my kids to help in the kitchen. Since the time they were small, I had them right alongside me in the kitchen, whether it be at home or restaurant. However, during the summer we’re rarely home, so not many meals grace our table. With […]
