Holiday Entertainment

The end of November marks the time when I officially get into the holiday spirit. This means I’m racking up my brain with gift ideas, performing endless baking sprees, and hosting loads of dinner parties. I’m all about holiday entertainment, so I always look for ways to create a full holiday ambiance in my space. Together, Joe and I have…

Our Wedding Photos

I still can’t believe how fast two months can go by. Joe and I tied the knot in September and our wedding was exactly how I envisioned it to be. We can’t help but ohhh and ahhh over our wedding photos. Every time we browse through our collection (which happens quite often), our eyes well up with tears because it…

Sweet Potato Pie

I made a promise to myself that for this autumn, I’d get the hang of perfecting my homemade pies. With colder days quickly approaching, I figured that a sweet potato pie would be the best way to wrap up the season. I did a lot of work comparing different recipes and quickly learned that a combination of evaporated milk and…

Sparkly Pumpkin

Even though the temperatures have significantly dropped in my neck of the woods… it’s still technically autumn, right? Lush’s Sparkly Pumpkin was the next product to try in my bath time mini-series and it certainly gave me that feel-good, Fall vibe. Sparkly Pumpkin Although I’ve started a Bath Bomb review, the Sparkly Pumpkin technically falls under Lush’s Bubble Bar category….

Book Review: Our Turn

How wonderful to have picked up a book that touches on subjects that I hold close to my heart: women’s success in the workplace, social media, family and relationships, and the entertainment industry. Seriously… all wrapped into one. What’s even more wonderful is that I decided to read it during a very exciting period of change in my life. In…

Wild Mantle

I received this product for review and was not financially compensated for this post. All opinions are based on my own experience. Having been born and raised in Montreal, Canada, I know what it’s like to live through harsh, freezing winters. My closet has to be sectioned off in very specific seasonal-wear, and while it breaks my heart to not…

Homemade Tiropita

My dear friend Ciara married into a Greek family and now, her homemade Greek cooking is on point. I’m not really surprised: Ciara’s culinary skills are very impressive and she can go from Greek cooking to Russian dishes all the way down to whipping up a number of Irish plates. Ciara comes over every week and we literally spend hours…

Pink Bath Bomb

I have been shopping at Lush for years. I remember back in my college days when I’d have long breaks between classes, I would often hop onto the subway and head for the closest Lush store to pick up a few bath and care items (shampoo bars, face masks, hand creams… the works). I guess it’s safe to say that…

What’s In Your Purse?

I know lately I’ve been talking about being as hands-free as possible when it comes to carrying purses. There’s just something about a minimalist approach to carrying things around and running errands while still looking fashionable. When I spotted this Faux Shearling Backpack from Indigo Books & Music, I fell in love (apologies to my husband… but at this point…

Fabulously Scalloped Potatoes

When it comes to side-dishes, I’m all about using potatoes. They’re versatile and inexpensive and so we always have a bag at home. Recently, I put together a couple of servings of scalloped potatoes. My take on this side-dish was inspired by dauphine potatoes (one of Joe’s childhood favorites) and the gratin that my mom used to make when we…
