How To Rock A White Party



From yacht club dinners to P Diddy's annual bash, white parties are a visual splendor to attend.

There's something so gorgeous about seeing throngs of people dressed head to toe in classic white. Add champagne, a picnic, a DJ and some gorgeous lighting and you have an incredibly elegant affair.

After attending a few of these events, here's my tip on how to rock your white party in style, and have the most fun while doing it!

Factory Resetting Your Life




Do you know those weeks when you're just feeling overwhelmed?

You don't seem to be eating right, you're stressed (and getting a pimple!), you feel bloated and gross, you just aren't sleeping and nothing seems to cheer you up?

Don't you wish that you had a factory reset setting so that you could just clear your slate and get back to normal?

Well, lately I've been feeling a little bit of that.

Friday Wine Down!



Happy Friday!!!

It's been very quiet on the blog for the past two weeks! I've been taking a little bloggy break to focus on some other stuff in my life.

Also it's just been so gosh darn hot outside that all I want to do is wallow inside an ice bath.

Before I get to that though, let's Wine Down this week!

Recipes Worth Trying - Sweet and Savoury Cheese Dishes!



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!

Recipes Worth Trying - Lavender Summer Treats!


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.

Friday Wine Down


Happy Friday!

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!
