I love cheese!
Unfortunately, growing up my Dad was a cheese hater so we never really ate a lot of it. Now in my adult years, I have tied myself to a wonderful man who also hates cheese (seriously... wtf) so once again I find myself not cooking with it very often.
Great for the waistline, but not always good for the soul.
Luckily, many of the wonderful women in my life LOVE cheese, so when given the opportunity to buy and cook up something delicious and cheesy, I jump at it!

I love picking a new recipe to try.
Cookbooks, newspaper clippings, pinterest finds; a great new recipe means a fun day in the kitchen for me!
This past weekend I dove into one of my FAVOURITE sources for great recipes, the LCBO Food & Drink magazine, where the theme of so many great recipes was lavender.
I picked two that looked incredible and got to cooking. The Lavender Raspberry Mojito, and the Lavender Lemon Curd Tarts.

It's a hot one in the Toronto area this week. Hydration and keeping the shades drawn are the name of the game right now.
I can't say I mind too much though, it's lovely to have the heat! I know I'll miss it when it's gone.
This weekend I'm hoping to spend lots of time outside by the lake working on my tan and snapping pictures (maybe catching a few Pokemon...) so let's Wine Down this week!

It's been a while since I've done an outfit post, but I'm just so happy with some of my new purchases that you can expect a few in the coming weeks!
I love business casual attire in the summer. It's brighter and more versatile than it's winter-time counterparts, with light fabrics that keep you cool while looking très chic.
