Monday Must Knows - Kari Skelton

I've been a bad bad bad blogger. I'm honestly shocked my sister hasn't fired me yet. (Thanks Lindz!) 

I'm not sure what you want me to write about. This winter that never ended really took a toll on me. I'm so glad the warm weather is upon us. But to be honest, I have a hard time generating content when I feel like everything has already been done before. I don't want to rip people off. Especially when most of my day is spent just cleaning, playing ponies, and wiping tiny butts. So until I get my rump in gear, here's the gorgeous Kari Skelton telling us about herself! Thanks Kari!


kari Skelton , Edmonton blogger, kids decor Edmonton,

Hi, I'm Kari! I'm a mom to Wyatt who is 2.5 years old and to our dog Moses who is almost six. I'm in love with a guy named Ryan (my husband). I'm a blogger at and I'm also a personal shopper and stylist. I worked in radio and television for 13 years before going on maternity leave. I had always wanted to start my own blog to share ideas on style, parenting, and adventure. So, when we decided I was going to stay home and raise the babies, it seemed like a perfect time to start my business! I love to have fresh flowers in our home all the time and I eat cake at least once a week. 



1) Personal Record of days of dry shampoo? Seven. Dry shampoo and hats are some of your best friends when you're a new mom. 

2) Personal Record of shows watched in one sitting? (how many hours? What show?) Suits a few years ago. 10 episodes in a row. When I was a kid I watched Teen Witch 25 times in one year and when I was in my early 20's I used to leave parties early to go to Blockbuster and rent Sex and the City. I watched the whole series in two weeks (I can't believe I'm admitting this.) *editors note: OWN THIS SHIT GIRL I AM WITH YOU*

3) Longest time between grocery trips? (for home, not business!) I go to the grocery store all the time. I'm one of the weird ones who enjoys grocery shopping. 

4) Favourite story your spouse/partner tells about you at parties? The moment we met in a media scrum (we both used to be news reporters). We were interviewing the Minister of Municipal Affairs (at the time). He describes what I was wearing and then we bicker about who owned the scrum and asked the best questions. *editors note: WHO WON?!*

5) What food do you effing hate? Like if someone fed it to you, you would spit it out on your kid? (obviously we are joking, please do not spit on your children.) Raisins. I think it's the only thing I don't like to eat. Used to eat them all the time when I was young but now I can't stand them. 


Thank you so much Kari! You're a gem!

Until next time...

Monday Must Haves - Ear Worms

Happy Monday everyone! Since I'm pretty sure you don't want to listen to me talk about the My Little Pony soundtrack or Cardi B, I enlisted the help of the beautiful, amazing, and talented Randee Armstrong! Have I mentioned she's a babe? Seriously. Randee is the manager extrarordinare over at The Skinny (who recently re-opened in Southgate Mall!) Randee always seems to have the best taste in music! Thanks Randee! 


Being it’s January and I’m feeling those winter blues I’m going to recommend songs that hopefully have a little more pep then they make you want to stay in bed all day. But also! Given the woman’s marches that took place this weekend I’m going to make this an all female theme as well, because they kick ass. 


So let’s start with my number 1, Slacks by St. South, it’s easy and it’s breezy and it’s got the perfect beat to get your feet off the bed and onto the floor.

Number 2 is a song called Low Tide by Drama Duo, her voice is super smooth and easy to listen to, it’s a morning drive to work go to.


Number 3 is a song i just discovered yesterday actually, this is a good mid morning sip your coffee and sing along while trying not to spill coffee on your white blouse (Randee move). Bellyache by Billie Eilish.


My number 4 is a bit more of a take a breather in the back if you find yourself annoyed by coworkers, customers or perhaps even those closest to you ;) Take a seat and some deep breaths while you listen to Perfect Grace by Kwamie Liv.

Number 5! I’m only giving you 5 songs so i should try to make this one good... let’s see, this can be your drive home from work, because that’s always exciting and this allows you just enough beat to dance in your seat without putting other drivers in harms-way. Touch by Shura. She also gives me Solange vibes... and i love Solange.

Actually you’re getting 6! Because this song is all about being a women and has lots to do with what went on this weekend!

Woman by Rosie Lowe!

Happy Monday everyone!! Hope you all have a beautiful week.




Ok, so I legit downloaded all of these! Randee linked the spotify links and I added the iTunes links since I use apple music. Seriously SO GOOD. Thank you so much Randee!!

Until next time peeps!
