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…

Bake Sale

Recently, I was asked to provide goodies for a bake sale and I quickly agreed to do so. Bake sales really take me back to my childhood: my elementary school would frequently hold fundraising events and I remember bringing a handful of change so that I could indulge in a sweet treat during recess. I was racking my brain trying…

What’s In Your Purse? My Coach Cross-Body

This season, I’ve been noticing more of my “minimalist practices” when it comes to packing my purse. I’m known to carry around rather large totes and being equipped with items for “worse-case scenarios” (band-aids, granola bars… the works).

Joe would describe each piece of chocolate before I unwrapped and popped them into my mouth (they really took him back to his childhood). I realized that the…

DIY Lip Scrub

I am one of the first to admit how beautiful of a season autumn truly is. Problem is, that the “crisp feel to the air” can really play around with my skin and lips. In my neck of the woods (Montreal, Canada for all of you who are wondering!), the sudden drop in temperature causes my lips to get pretty…

Long Silver Dress

Over the summer, I was running around the city trying to find the perfect clothes for my honeymoon in Spain. I managed to purchase most of my “honeymoon wardrobe” during a week-long venture and while on my shopping spree, I spotting this maxi-dress by Pink Stitch. You could have called it love at first sight (sorry, Joe) because I knew immediately…

Nutella Crepes

When Joe and I went to Spain, we noticed that there was an abundance of crêpe and waffle stands. They were stationed in front of our favorite restaurants, so it was easy to grab a dessert to-go and munch on made-on-the-spot treats while taking walks along the beach. I like to play a game of repetition when it comes to…

My Neon Skirt

I kicked off our honeymoon (spent at L’Escala, Spain!) with a new piece in my wardrobe that I’m incredibly excited about. J.Crew always nails their skirt game so when I saw this neon a-line hanging in their sale section, I grabbed it without thinking twice (so yes, it was an impulse purchase). I decided to pair it with my newest chambray shirt,…
