Take Me To Spring //

Tuesday, 26 February 2013








































Happy Tuesday! Have I mentioned that I'm beyond excited for Spring yet? Yes, I totally have. I know it's still February but hey, a girl can dream! I love waking up to the birds chirping and sun rays beaming on my face through the window, oh and spring fashions of course. One of the biggest trends that hit both the runways and the streets for Spring is the military trend. I am loving the look of just a touch of camo print (whoever thought that would come back?!), or a splash of army green. Which is why I am head over heals for this perfect 'transition to spring' outfit. Combining a hint of all my favourites; army green, leather, cobalt and rhinestones. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Tuesday!

Cake Batter Cookies //

Monday, 25 February 2013


























When I was a little girl, I had the biggest sweet tooth. I used to love being in the kitchen with my mom, helping her bake cookies, cake, really anything with sugar. Some of my first baking experiences included creating a delicious masterpiece out of a box, so these cake batter cookies were the perfect trip down memory lane. If you are like me and while growing up enjoyed your fair share of confetti filled, boxed cakes and cupcakes, you are going to fall in love with these. 

I followed this recipe to make these little delights. My only piece of advice would be to ensure your cookies are well spaced (they spread quite a bit), and I decreased the baking time to nine minutes as my first batch were a little too crisp. Pair with a cold glass of milk and a fun straw.














































And congratulations to entry number 13, Mae! You are the winner of the SS Print Shop Giveaway!

The Lust List //

Friday, 22 February 2013




















































It's Friday!! Time to go shopping! Usually throughout the week I'll spend a little.. okay a lot of time browsing online shops and searching out lust-worthy items. I've decided that every week, throughout the week, I will muster up all of my musings and lusts, gather them all together and share them with you at the end of the week! So, this is my first Friday Lust List. 

I'm still head over heels for the hint of leather look, so this Asos cardigan is simply perfect. I'm also currently on the hunt for an iPad case and this Ted Baker glittered bow case is beyond adorable, perfect for the girly girl! I'm also kicking myself as I was just at Holts and somehow missed picking up this Sir Elton John & David Furnish candle, which smells delicious, burns evenly, and fills the room with it's yummy scent! 

Until next week, thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Friday!

Hair Trends to Try this Spring //

Thursday, 21 February 2013



















































I came home from work today and immediately put on one of Danny's sweaters, made a hot cup of tea and turned on the fireplace. There is no doubt it's still Winter in Vancouver, it's cold, and today is no exception. Even though it's dreary and wintery outside, I have my mind set on sun and Spring! I spent all last night browsing Spring trends and getting super excited for the warmer days to come. I can't wait for Spring florals, sun-kissed skin and easy, slouchy spring hair. The deep side part is one Spring hair trend I'm excited to try, super easy, feminine and fun. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Thursday.

Sweet Potato Chips //

Wednesday, 20 February 2013




























My days off normally consist of sending out shipments, instagramming way too many photos and spending more time than usual browsing Pinterest. Yesterday while doing the usual, I stumbled across this recipe for homemade baked sweet potato chips, a (somewhat) healthier alternative to regular bagged potato chips. I followed this recipe, and they were super simple and more importantly very yummy.

Danny and I enjoyed these while relaxing on the couch. They would also be perfect with a crisp, cold beer. 

Enjoy!































Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday.

Springtime Sunnies //

Tuesday, 19 February 2013

This morning I had to go with Danny(oh yes, you'll probably hear of him lots, he's my darling boyfriend with whom I live) to pick up some supplies for his company. I dropped him off, hopped around to the front seat and was on my way. However, in that moment that I stepped outside I had a wonderful 'ah hah' moment, if you've never had an 'ah hah' moment, it's wonderful, and I'm sure you will soon. Either way, in that single moment, the sun was shining(a rarity in Vancouver), the birds were chirping(another rarity), and for that single moment I was happy and peaceful. It was a moment of bliss and it gave me a sense of excitement that Spring is just around the corner. Seeing as sun is so rare in our city, this Spring I will be taking every opportunity to shield my eyes with the perfect pair of sunnies. Numbers two and three are sunnies that I currently own and love dearly, one and four are on the wish list. 


Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Tuesday.
