I'm so excited to be taking over the McArthur Glen Designer Outlets instagram page this week! This centre is so special to Danny and I and we are so excited to be sharing our Valentines approved day date with you! Be sure to pop over to their instagram page and give them a follow because we will be giving away some Valentines approved goodies on the 14th - a Michael Kors charm bracelet for her, and a Tom Ford cologne for him! I will be taking over the page until the day of love is here which is also when we will announce the winners of the giveaway! Can't wait to celebrate Valentines with you!

There's nothing I love more than a cozy night in with Danny, Gigi, good food, and even better wine. With Valentines Day coming up, I love the idea of staying in and making a night of preparing a delicious meal with your loved one.

Red Rooster offers so many delicious varietals to pair with whatever you plan to cook for your special night. To begin the evening I always start with white wine. The Red Rooster Reisling is the most delicious sipper to have while you're prepping and chopping - it's fresh, clean, and the perfect combination of sweet and tart - I can't think of a better way to start your Valentines night in! 

Fresh homemade pasta is such a natural fit for Valentines and so fun to make with your special someone. The Red Rooster Merlot is an amazing wine to have on hand for nights like this as it pairs so beautifully with food. We made a simple fresh pasta with a delicious marinara sauce, grilled chicken and vegetables, crisp parsley and fresh parmesan - amazing with the smooth, aromatic merlot.

To end the evening - simple homemade chocolate chip cookies are the perfect dessert and pairing for the Red Rooster Merlot. There's something so comforting and loving about chocolate chip cookies, they're so indulgent on a day like Valentines day - they will also make your home smell amazing! Bring a plateful and the rest of your merlot over to the couch and spend the rest of the night snuggled up with a good flick!


Thank you to Red Rooster wine for collaborating on this post.

Lately Le Château has been speaking my language with all their gorgeous blush and neutral hues. When I started picking up pieces to bring to Mexico this gorgeous cardi was a must! So perfect for throwing on at night and lightweight so I can easily pack it in my carry-on. I also picked up a couple super cozy camis that are a great must have for either wearing out, to the beach or even just to throw on while you're getting ready!

We have been as always, loving Cuernavaca so far. It's always nice to come back and visit friends and family. We went up to Mexico City yesterday to go to six flags - I never thought of myself as a scaredy cat when it comes to rides but apparently I am. We went on a crazy tall rollercoaster called superman and Danny said he'd never seen such fear in my eyes before.. you should see the pic they caught of me! It was probably also because my phone was in my back pocket and as we dropped it fell out, so I spent the remainder of the ride (drops, loops, etc) frantically pressing my back against the seat so it wouldn't fall to it's death - luckily I was able to grab it and all is well. Lesson learned.

With the start of a fresh year, there’s no better time to get a jump on your personal health and really dive into your goals and focuses for the upcoming year. One of my priorities every year is taking proper care of my eye health and making sure I take the time for proper check-ups and exams. Not only are eye doctors able to provide you with the proper prescription, but they are also checking for diseases and are able to evaluate your eyes to determine your overall health. January is the perfect time to book an exam and treat yourself to a brand new pair of specs - New Year, New Look! 

Being in fashion, I love options. What I love about is that they supply gorgeous eyeglass options for a fraction of the price which makes it simple for anyone to be able to switch up their look with their outfit / setting! I embrace the fact that my eyes aren’t perfect because it’s so fun being able to pick and choose my specs with my look - when I’m feeling a little more casual and relaxed, I opt for an easy plastic tortoise frame, when I’m feeling playful, I switch it up to a petal pink frame, and when I’m feeling a little more trendy and edgy I opt for a round gold metal frame. 

One of the things I did even before the new year began was I sat down and wrote out my goals for 2017, with my healthy eyes and clear vision I’m able to step into the new year with a fresh outlook and ready to take on all of my goals in design, photography, and family. 

Cleary has three locations across Canada to help you with ensuring your eyes are healthy and ready for another year! They will also help you pick the perfect frames to get you feeling gorgeous and excited to tackle your 2017 goals! You can also take 40% off lens upgrades until February 15th with code ‘TESSA’.
