Song So the Black Keys’ new album was leaked this week and I LOVE everything on it, including their new song “Weight of Love” (thanks to Stefan for the recommendation!).     Food Riley introduced me to the Big Mac pizza at a Enzo’s Pizzabar on Queen West…dead.     Pinterest Finds     1. Refinery29 did a feature on watercolour paintings of dresses from the 2014 Met Ball…stunning! 2. Comfy, cozy decor…my favourite kind. 3. My new phone background. 4. I need to make these chocolate peanut butter parfaits! 5. Everyone needs some stress relief! This would be a cute… View Post

Queen’s University offers an exchange experience at the Bader International Study Centre…better known as “The Castle.” I made the decision to go to the castle for 6 weeks last summer in order to travel and take a few courses. One year ago today, I left Canada and traveled to Herstmonceux; nervous, alone, and unsure what to expect. Little did I know that the experience in store for me would change my life. This #tbt is dedicated to my castle family and the memories we share. ♡ The BISC is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. The castle sits… View Post

May has arrived, and hopefully it will bring warm weather. I am SO over this damp, chilly, windy business! With the beginning of a new month comes new beginnings for this girl; a new place to live being the most notable. It’s time to start fresh and begin shaping my home, at which I can spend time with the people I love and create a space that is entirely my own. I am looking forward to blogging about the moving process and my new endeavours. In the meantime, enjoy your weekly dose of Carly tidbits. ♡ Song I LOVE me some Ariana… View Post

One of the things I’m most looking forward to about being done university is having time to read. I know I speak for many of my peers when I say that the volume of academic readings we did throughout university made it very difficult to want to sit down and enjoy a novel. That being said, now that I am done with school, I can’t wait to start reading for enjoyment again. I feel like I haven’t read a book in forever! Below is a list of the top 10 novels that I am looking forward to reading this summer…some old, some… View Post

I am officially done my undergraduate degree (provided I passed my finals…fingers crossed!!)…I still can’t believe it. With summer approaching and no concrete plans, I’m left with a blank slate. It’s a scary (yet oddly blissful) feeling to have. I’m so excited to do whatever I want…find a job, move into my apartment, and do things that I love: spend time with the people I adore, read more, learn to cook, watch too much Netflix, and with the recent induction of focus on my blog! I can’t wait to see what the next chapter brings and where I’m headed. This week… View Post

    Earlier this month, I found a website that gave instructions for DIY lace doily bowls. I have never been an outstandingly crafty person, however once in a while a craft catches my eye that I can’t refuse! This project is super easy…the hardest part was finding the lace doilies! Heads up: Michael’s doesn’t have any, and neither does Fabricland. Riley and I ended up finding some doilies at Value Village, and we decided they would have to do! Ours didn’t work out nearly as well as the ones pictured on the original blog, but I think that they’ll still… View Post
