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…

National Oatmeal Day With mixit.ca

I haven’t been hopping on the “National Day” bandwagon lately. I missed the memo about National Coffee Day (September 29), and I would have totally used the celebration as a passive excuse to outdo my normal caffeine intake. Today marks National Oatmeal Day and I’m celebrating with mixit.ca. As a tween, eating oatmeal was practically a chore, but Mix It…

Book Review: The Little Prince

I was about eight years old when my uncle gave me a copy of The Little Prince by Antoine Saint-Exupéry. I’ll fully admit that it took me up until my adult years to finally get through the story in its entirety… and while I couldn’t get past the idea of a boa constrictor inside an elephant as a child, I…

Candied Pecans

Today, I decided to put together some candied pecans because of its simplicity and the sweet aroma it gives our home as it slowly bakes into a crisp perfection. What I love most about this recipe is that it can be served either as an autumn or winter dessert. The blend of cinnamon and cayenne pepper gives it that spicy,…

Subtle Halloween Decor

Shortly after tying the knot, Joe and I realized that we have quickly outgrown our space and that by next summer, we will be seriously looking for a larger home. As exciting as this is (a triple “yay” for more bedrooms!), I was a little discouraged to buy more decorations and furniture for our current condo. It didn’t take me…
