spring giveaway! Win $75 PayPal Cash

Today officially marks the first day of spring! And despite only having moderately spring-like weather here in Ontario, we are slowly getting closer to enjoying some above freezing temperatures. I'm not much of a winter fan, so I definitely am looking forward to finally being able to ditch the heavy winter coats and boots, slip into my sandals and bask in the glory of not having to wear socks.

To usher in the new season, I've partnered with some blogging buds to giveaway some cold hard cash! You can do whatever you want with it as long as you have fun doing it (ie: grab a venti unsweetened iced coffee with light ice and milk and head to DSW for new sandals).  But this isn't just about a giveaway (although who wouldn't want $75?), you can also link up any of your favourite Spring posts, whether they are recipes, crafts, home decor, outfits, or anything that you love about the season!  Now meet your beautiful hosts...

round-up: 10 spring-inspired diy projects

I recently became a contributor for Mode's Tend column and have been having a pretty good time compiling some of my favourite DIY projects and inspiring interiors into round-ups for their readers.

This week I was inspired by the warmer-than-usual weather we were experiencing in southern Ontario (although today that feels like a distant memory!) and rounded up ten fun and fabulous projects that reminded me of those long-lost sunny spring days.

From handmade soaps to paint-by-number thrift store prints, these ten projects will leave you, your home and your Instagram feed feeling like it got a much-needed hit of spring.

Get the full list of projects here.
