An Easter Table for Two

Easter Table Inspiration

I don't know if it's because Easter holidays finally mean warmer weather on the horizon or because I have such great memories of decorating Easter eggs and then hunting to find them, but I have such a fondness for this holiday. Thinking about this I was inspired to create a simple Easter table setting for two, where I could share a lovely brunch with my sweetheart. The soft green and yellow were the perfect colour palette for my Easter table setting. I wanted to keep it simple by layering Continue Reading »

Inspired by London

Inspired by London

This city...every time I go back, I fall more in love. There is nowhere else like it...truly. Our trip was packed to the brim but I still had time to just sit and soak up this incredible place. What I love most is the perfect balance of old and new. Its like the whole city is a juxtaposition. Our hotel was right next to the old Roman wall and you could stand next to it while still taking in the brilliant new buildings in the cityscape. We spent time seeing the sights...the Tower, St. Continue Reading »

Lamb Kebabs with Heavenly Homemade Tzatziki

Lamb Kebabs with homemade tzatziki

 It is no secret that I love to eat...but when it comes to cooking, I find it really hard to find the time and energy. Especially when it comes to cooking well (no burning allowed!!) and healthy. How many times have I simply opted for another frozen pizza, you ask?? Well, I won't go there. So when I spent some time with my cousin Jacqui in Canmore, I was blown away at her culinary skills. Ryan and I hadn't eaten that well in ages! And now, (drumroll please...) you all (including myself, yay!) Continue Reading »

And the Award Goes to…

The votes are in! We had a great time watching the Oscars last night and celebrating the fashion bests and worsts along with the incredible films from the year. We had to weigh in today on our thoughts for the night. We all agreed that the best dressed goes to.... Naomi Watts! She looked head to toe amazing. Love that she kept her hair and makeup simple and adorned her dress with a statement necklace. This to me is elegant, poised and timeless.  And special congrats goes to Jared Leto Continue Reading »

The best of Best & Buys at Crate & Barrel

Crate and Barrel

Since we opened a Crate and Barrel store in Edmonton, I have gone in so many times, buying little trinkets here and there. I  have drooled over a lot of bigger items but, alas, the prices were always a bit too high for my budget. But recently, I was pulled into the store when a gorgeous blue green sofa caught my eye and when I saw the price I was pleasantly surprised! It was a part of the new Best & Buys collection! Have you checked this out yet?? There are some really great items...that my Continue Reading »
