SO LONG, SUMMERTIME

This Summer flew by!  Not entirely sure if it’s a reality of age (it’s so true what they say) or how intensely busy this season was for me, but it feels like the past few months passed in the blink of an eye.   Read More

FRUITY CHIA SEED PANCAKES

I mean who doesn’t love pancakes? I have to admit when I find a healthier baking recipe, I usually have low expectations since I find a lot of substitutions can affect taste. This recipe requires no added sugar or dairy but there is zero sacrifice on flavour. Read More

AUGUST BEAUTY: SUMMER ’16

As far as I’m concerned, Sephora is the candy store for grown women & little else gets me so excited as a shopping bag of new products.  Things change so quickly in the beauty industry & I’m always on the lookout for what’s new and exciting.  Even though I LOVE trying products, it can be expensive and difficult to know what works and what doesn’t.  For this reason, I often reach out to friends or people I know who are experts in this field to make recommendations before purchasing.  If this sounds like you, you’ll love my new blog series.  Each month I’ll be sharing new or time tested beauty tricks I love, some from yours truly & some from sources I put full faith in.

MIXING TRENDS

I must say I am loving the trends this Summer & decided to mix a few together for a Summer evening stroll. At the beginning of the season, during my semi-annual closet purge, I came across a pair of denim overalls I acquired during my Guess girl days (still kind of a Guess girl at heart), tried them on and thought “EW.” Since then I’ve had a change of heart!
