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

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

Hi Lovelies :) It’s recipe timmee! Today I’m sharing another AMAZING recipe by trainer, BreeAnn Cox, from Body by Bree – the Balsamic Mustard Chicken Marinade. As it gets colder outside, my body always wants warmer foods! This recipe is a great way to add some flavor to your meals and adding delicious garden veggies. For the marinade, add 2 1/2 tablespoons mustard, 3 garlic cloves, 1/4 cup olive oil, and a 1/4 balsamic vinegar to a Ziplock bag. Rinse off the chicken breast, season with salt & pepper and add to the bag to marinate for at least 3 hours (or longer!). Once the chicken is nicely marinated, cut up some of your favorite in-season veggies, and roast them in the oven. Brown the chicken breast in a hot skillet, and then turn heat down and let them simmer until fully cooked. Serve with the veggies for a beautifully flavored meal <3

Hello lovelies! Hope you are having the most amazing week. Today I thought I’d share some memories from our recent trip to Banff. We spent a lovely weekend away with the family, shopping, hiking, eating a whole lot of delicious food, and getting some good old fashioned fresh air :) One of my favorite hikes to do is Tunnel Mountain. It is located right in the heart of Banff, perfect for a great morning workout. Once you get to the top the views are spectacular, overlooking the city of Banff and all the way around. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place, and it is great to take advantage and explore all that nature has to offer. It was definitely a bit of a chilly hike, so I always throw on something for my ears, and definitely can’t live without these North Face gloves. They are my go-to for winter runs and getting active outdoors. At the moment, the best running shoes for my feet (and body) are these New Balance 880v6 runners. And of course, my favorite athleisure brand is Lululemon! They have the most functional pieces that give an incredible weightless warmth for these cold November mornings, while leaving you absolutely gaga for style! I can’t wait to get my hands on one of their amazing winter run vest for Christmas – an absolute must-have for the season! Happy hiking, loves <3

Hello loves! Today I wanted to bring a fun little fall shoot to the blog. We have been having such a warm fall-winter transition that I am never really sure how to dress! However, this striped Ralph Lauren long-sleeve is perfect with this in between weather. A wardrobe isn’t complete without a few striped shirts. I am obsessed with the little details in this look, especially the elbow patches. With this top, the elbow patches add such a great piece of detail to contrast the look of the stripes. I have to admit, I don’t often change it up from my classic gold Michael Kors watch, but the Reva gold tone Tory watch has become one of my go-to’s if I’m in the mood to switch it up. I absolutely die for the perfect accessory :) To round it all off, I paired with this cozy Rudsak scarf for a bit of extra warmth and a brown boot to compliment the elbow patches. I absolutely love this combo, and can always pair it was a leather jacket or even a cozy vest – the possibilities are endless! <3
