My Christmas Time Nespresso Moment

Food, Recipes










Hello lovelies! Since it is the festive season, thought I’d share with you all about this amazing limited edition Banana Bread Nespresso flavor. It is to die for! We only just recently dove into the Nespresso scene, and snagged ourselves the VertuoLine Nespresso Machine. For someone who doesn’t really prefer a strong cup of coffee, I was definitely hesitant. But thanks to Nespresso’s new recipes online I have been mastering a few specialty coffees, and kicking up my hostess skills. It’s been exceptionally cold these past few weeks, so coffee by the fireplace has definitely been my jam! I have to say I like to make it fancy, using the Nespresso milk frother to give it that specialty look. Then top it off with a dash of cinnamon and I couldn’t be happier. In winter time I definitely live for my Nespresso moments. The best conversations are shared over a cup of coffee, and it creates rich, priceless times together! So don’t hold back this Christmas season. Make time for those special moments together with friends and family <3

Ultimate Holiday Gift for the Procrastinator

Beauty, Fashion

Hello lovelies! December is well on it’s way and I know there are many of you who still have a few people on your gift list… so I thought I’d put together some of my favorites for this year to get you inspired. I’ve thrown together a lot of chic, on-brand items, as well as some total cozy, snuggly pieces for this freezing winter weather we are having right now. For us this year we decided to do a secret Santa gift exchange. It was so fun being able to put all the thought and creativity into one gift – really go all out! However, if you’re not doing secret Santa this year, it can become quite tricky to think of gifts for everyone in the family! So I did a bit of digging online for the best creative little gifts I could find that are absolutely to die for! Not only are these great options for gifts, but there are a few fabulous stocking stuffers in there as well. Those stockings are all I had left on my to-do list for this holiday, so it was well worth the search! Hope you enjoy these as much as I do, and don’t forget to soak up all the holiday cheer out there <3

A Birthday Brunch With The Ladies

Food, Recipes









Hello my Loves! Now what is better than a weekend brunch?? So over the weekend I organized a wonderful birthday brunch to celebrate with some of the amazing ladies in my life. For the event, I booked us in at The Farmer’s House for a lovely intimate brunch. The place is an absolute gem and such a great little spot. The house was built in 1912, so it has a real rustic feel with separate little rooms that are great for private events. To start we enjoyed a few lattés, cappuccinos, and americanos. The special for the day was a Beef, Feta and Artichoke Frittata, served with a side of salad or potatoes. This sounded amazing, so I opted for the frittata with the salad, which was delicious and fresh. Others ordered the Farmer’s Breakfast Egg Sandwich, which was available with a choice of meat; chorizo sausage, bacon, or ham and can even be enjoyed with a side salad or soup. They also have a great selection of gluten free options, sourced from a local bakery. We had a lovely time, and enjoyed the cozy atmosphere of the old house. Couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the morning together <3

The Bird Print Dress Divine

Fashion, Outfits






Hello lovelies!! Just so crazy about this dress, that it found it’s way back onto the blog :) For those who know me well, I am the kind of gal who tends to go for all things neutral, beige, or even somewhat vanilla – which happens to be one of my favorite flavors! Don’t judge… But this bird print dress is just what I needed to step out of my usuals and get some color in there. The best part is that it is great to wear, winter or summer. Just pop on a warm, cozy scarf with some leggings for winter, or pair it with sandals in the summer. But of course, for winter my favorite are these Steven Madden boots with gold detail. The gold theme goes so well with this look, and I definitely would add that statement watch to seal the deal. Now, I couldn’t stay away from my neutrals completely, which is where my staple Michael Kors bag comes in. It does the perfect job of balancing out the bright colours, yet still makes it’s appearance. Don’t be afraid to be bold in your outfits this winter. It’s a great way to make you smile and can put an extra bounce in your step <3
