Currently Coveting – A Spring Party

Currently Coveting – A Spring Party

I don’t know what it is (possibly the weather taking so long to change), but I have a mega craving to bake up a celebration-worthy cake and host a vividly pretty party for a close few.  I love the neons, pastels, and the cheekiness of all things spring, and would love to abuse the occasion […]

We’ve had family staying with us for about a month now, and this past week the man’s brother flew in from Vancouver to meet baby boy.  With his presence, came an onslaught of treats, gifts, and sweet indulgences from his local Wholefoods (a store I’m openly obsessed with – one of which we don’t yet […]

Easy Treats – Blood Orange Curd

Easy Treats – Blood Orange Curd

Set out this afternoon for a doctor’s appointment, only to return hours later in a haggard state.  Boy am I tired! Been enjoying the many delights of food and family as of late, boarding myself in and hibernating before things get crazier around here.  Pancakes, muffins, jams, teas, chocolate, kettle chips… hearty and sinfully indulgent […]

Insta-Recap – Love, Patience & Creativity

Since the mom-in-law arrived, I’ve finally been able to slow my momentum down a few levels.  It’s been wonderful, but there are times when I fear the return of reality when daily life resumes.  I’m trying my best to indulge without letting myself get lazy and bored.  For the most part, makeup-less days, cooking romps/lessons […]

Fashionista Finds – Saatchi Art

If you follow my instagram account, you’ll know that the man and I are big art buffs.  Ever getting carried away in documentaries showcasing the talents and eccentricities of the masters (Bacon, Basquiat, Warhol, Rothko, Soulages, Pollock… you name it, we’ve seen it), it’s no wonder we approach our own ever-expanding collection with the same […]

DIY Design – 3D Paper Liquorice Allsorts

My grandfather eats them like chips (inhale may be a better word).  They are gorgeous in colour, and design-wise are as imaginative as candy come.  When I saw these paper printables, and read that they’d make for a cool kids mobile, I had to share.  What a fun afternoon activity (I’d even keep these as […]

Want To Make – All Natural Red Velvet Beet Cake & Goat Cheese Thyme Icing

I vowed not to go out today. Then my dad called. Within a twenty minute span, I was dressed and in the car with him, on the way to lunch.  Once ready for the day, I like to make the most of it.  Downtown shopping, a tea meetup with the man, and a snowy stroll […]

Foodspiration – Mama Eats Plants Feed

Today was a culinary treat. Went out to one of my favourite french lunch spots for authentic Parisian cheese fondue and hot chocolate fondant.  Everything on the menu looked both hearty and delicious (a la french onion soup, spicy dijon, and those little pickles you always want there to be more of).  The past two […]

Insta Recap – Countdown To Baby Boy

Insta Recap – Countdown To Baby Boy

Welcome to the weekend beauties! Looking forward to a few caged in days making toys (I’ve acquired a felting obsession over the course of an evening), blood orange curd (found the simplest, most delicious-sounding recipe), and listening to Phil Collins classics (Do You Remember is pretty much my mood as of late).  A few things […]
