Staying Sane in November & December

So.... did you guys know that Christmas is only 40 days away?! Did anyone else's heart just stop or was just that mine?! I remember when I was a kid, Christmas was SO exciting and the wait for December 25th was excruciating, it seriously felt as though Christmas would never get here. However, I'm finding [...]

Homemade Limoncello

Homemade Limoncello

I am not ashamed to admit that one of my favourite things to do a Sunday morning is watch Food Network and get some ideas for meals for the week ahead. I'm even further unashamed to tell you that one of my current fave shows is Valerie's Home Cooking I have tried so many recipes from [...]

Winter Boots (for those who hate winter boots)

Winter Boots (for those who hate winter boots)

November 4, 2017 was a big day in my life. For the first time since I moved to Canada 20 years ago, I bought my first pair of actual winter boots! I have always been a more "style over practicality" type of person, and although a pair of boots won't change that about me, I [...]

Celebrating Halloween with Bloody Sugar Shard Cupcakes

I can't believe I haven't posted in over two weeks! I thought things were crazy before but the past couple of weeks have just been insane! Originally I was happy to see the end of October arriving, but November is looking to be just as crazy, if not more so. At this point I'm just [...]

Surviving Cold Season at Work

Surviving Cold Season at Work

This post is my third in my "How to survive work" series (see #1 and #2 here) Remember that cold I mentioned having in Friday's post?? Well it's now Monday and it's still kicking my ass! I haven't had a cold in years so I forgot just how inconvenient they can be and just how miserable they can make you [...]

Friday Favorites – Lush

Friday Favorites – Lush

Today's Friday Favorites post came at a great time because I just came down with an wicked cold and I definitely need some pampering time! I used to be a huge Lush fan about 10 years ago, but I became so obsessed with it that I bought too much, received a bunch as gifts, and then [...]

Spiced Apple Bundt Cake

Something that you might not know about me if you’re new to my blog is I love baking! Something about transforming ingredients into something tasty makes me feel accomplished and relaxed. It’s always a huge bonus when people enjoy what I bake too. It feels like my contribution and I love that. This past weekend [...]

Friday Favorites: Bare Minerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor

Due to the Writing Challenge last month, I didn't do any Friday Favorites posts and it feels like forever since my last one so I am super excited to share this one with you! One look that I really love is bold lips, but I have never really had the confidence to pull it off. [...]

Online Shopping: Vici Dolls

Online Shopping: Vici Dolls

You guys, I have to share one of my favourite stores with you! Vici Collection has two store fronts in California in Newport Beach and Walnut Creek, and a huge online store. They also have the most stylish, drool-worthy Instagram account (which is great for my closet but not so beneficial to my bank account)! I have shopped [...]

30 Day Writing Challenge Review

I know I'm a few days late, but I promised I would complete a review of the 30 Days Writing Challenge, so here it is! I actually really enjoyed the writing challenge and I definitely learned from it.
