Life Lately: The Calgary Renovation Show, Ashy Brown Ombré, a Smeg Kettle + More

I DIY-ombre’d my hair at home and it turned out… not so amazing (see above photos up top). So I went to Christine at The Cutting Edge in Milton to get my hair coloured for the first time in my life and am lovin’ it.

I’ll be speaking at the Calgary Renovation Show next weekend (on January 14th at 11am and 2pm on the main stage, to be exact)! There’s still tickets available if you’re interested–and get $5 off with code ‘SABRINA’. I’m so happy to be in good company among Sarah Richardson! If you care to know a bit more about my talk, here’s the Cole’s notes:

As a multi-disciplinary designer and curious creative, Sabrina Smelko’s DIY mentality has guided her through industries from illustration and design to tech and teaching, and has now led her on-screen through her roles as co-host of HGTV Canada’s Save My Reno, Designer on Home To Win and Cityline expert. A guiding statement, a holistic action, a suggestion, and a steady theme that has marked her life and design career, Sabrina will leave you inspired to think Big Picture and empowered to tackle your own home design with confidence.

I just booked my flights to Thailand for my yoga teacher training (which I’ll be doing at Vikasa)! The manuals and required reading ave arrived and I’m just in the thick of brushing up and getting my pre-studying on.  If anyone has any recommendations for must-see spots to visit in Thailand, please email me:

I’ve been Pinterest-crazy lately. So if you’re on there, hit me up!

I’ve been having a ton of fun filming Home To Win (S3). I honestly cannot wait until you can all tune in (and enter to compete to win) in just a few months!

I got a new Smeg kettle and love it. That’s all. Buy it from The Bay (Canadians) or Wayfair (US).
