Snacktember - Burrata Stuffed Tomatoes


Snacking is a really funny thing.

Sometimes, when you're craving a small snack, something chewy and chocolaty is all you need. Other times what you really want is something piping and doughy.

And then there are the times when you just crave something FRESH.

Having got the first two cravings sorted in recipes earlier this month, for this #Snacktember post I want to talk about my go to snack when I want something more refreshing and satisfying than chocolate, doughy treats.

Burrata Stuffed Tomatoes.

10 Products To Use Daily (Laura's Favourite Things!)


It's amazing all the STUFF we use on any given day.

Nail files, pasta spoons, band-aids, sun hats, candles... ok that's a weird list but you get the idea!

Ultimately though, you gravitate towards certain items, things you just couldn't do without on a day to day basis.

Today I want to talk to you about the top 10 items in my life that I use every. single. day. The things that make my life better, easier or just plain happier. Kind of like "Oprah's Favourite Things" except I can't afford to give anyone a car...

A Summer of Instagram!


Can you believe it's already September?!

I woke up this morning feeling like summer had just flashed by before my eyes. It seems only yesterday we were opening up our family cottage, enjoying long hot days and making bucket lists of activities.

Well the days are shorter and cooler now, the bucket list is (mostly) ticked off and I'm already starting to see signs of fall everywhere.

I know we have a few more weeks of summer, but for many of us I think the upcoming labour day weekend is really summer's last hurrah.

So today I've prepared some sensational Instagram photos that I've liked over the summer. Pictures that through colour and feel, completely represent everything that is the season of heat and fun. Good times with friends and family, getting outdoors, hitting the beach or pool, indulging in bright and delicious foods, and of course FASHION.

I hope you enjoy the selection. Clicking on each will launch the original pic in the Instagram browser window. 

Goodbye summer 2016! You rocked.

My Experience Going Gluten Free (So Far...)


This is a hard post for me to write because, in general, I am very very against fad diets.

If you want to Whole30, eat paleo, avoid peppers or load up on meat and protein, that's your call. Everyone has the right to do what they think is best for their health.

Personally, I've always believed in eating everything in moderation. I'm not a vegetarian, but I try to eat vegan a few days a week to load up on veggies. I don't follow the Whole30 cook book, but I practice some of what it preaches in my day to day life.

Eat well, cook your own food, avoid too much fat and sugar and enjoy your meal. These are the food standards I try to live by.

So it is with a LARGE helping of crow in my mouth that I admit to having gone gluten free for the last 4 weeks.
