Gift Alert: JORD Watches

“Dear Santa… any chance of grading on a curve?”

Pinterest

Well folks…. The countdown to Christmas is officially, officially ON! Feeling the heat? Not going to lie, I one hundred and ten percent am. Every single year, I pledge that I will complete all of my Christmas Shopping before December 1st & every single year, without fail, I always manage to absolutely do this NEVER. I’m the one frantically pushing my way through the merciless hordes of panicked mall crowds on December 23rd in utter desperation, whilst attempting to cross off everyone on my list. It’s a horrible, horrible position to be in… yet I do it to myself ALWAYS. However, I think I’ve managed to solve my little Christmas Conundrum this year because – spoiler alert friends & family – I’ve pretty much decided that almost everyone on my list will be receiving a JORD Watch! REJOICE!

In case you hadn’t heard the news that I’ve obnoxiously plastered all over social media…. Andrei & I are ENGAGED!!! We got engaged at sunset on the beach down in Florida. I can only assume it was all very romantic & magical…. tbh I cried throughout the entire thing so it’s actually somewhat of a blur! I wrote this travel guide on the plane ride down to Florida – before the proposal – so I thought I’d just add this little preface to share the news!!! Anywho – ENJOY!  Read More


How To: Host a Secret Santa Party

“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, but if the white runs out I’ll drink the red”

Pinterest

I am very uncharacteristically excited for Christmas & the Holidays this year. Like it is almost out of control. Normally, at this point in the month of November I would still very much be in mourning over the loss of the amazingness that is Halloween. However my consumption of various eggnog flavoured confections & horrifyingly cheesy Christmas movies up to this point has proven otherwise… & is honestly quite concerning. I’m convinced that shacking up with Andrei has something to do with it – I feel like having our own space to decorate to my taste & getting to share the holiday months with him this year is totally at the root of this newfound obsession. Like I seriously want to celebrate ALWAYS, & I’ve been racking my BRAIN trying to think of ANY excuse to have anyone over to celebrate in some way, shape or form… & I think I’ve settled on throwing a Secret Santa Party!

But who’s counting… Read More

Halloween Cocktail & Bar Essentials

“Hocus Pocus, I need wine to focus”

Pinterest

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been logging an inordinate number of hours to prep for my third annual Halloweekend Party up in Haliburton! A seriously unhealthy number of hours might I add. Guys, I literally treat this party with utmost seriousness. Like more serious than Christmas, my Birthday, Valentines’ Day, Easter & Thanksgiving combined. It is the REAL friggin’ deal. Now without a doubt, one of my very favourite things to research for my party has GOT to be the Halloween Cocktails – or “spirits” if you will! HOWEVER, I’ve always been wildly intimidated to actually try them out for myself! But THIS year, I’ve decided to throw my big boy pants on, & take on FOUR Halloween cocktails for my party – & I could NOT be more excited: they are so so SO on theme! So to help you guys also get into the spirit of things, I thought I’d share a few SPOOK-tacular Cocktail & Halloween Bar inspirations with all of YOU today!  Read More


Kitchen & Dining Room Inspirations for Thanksgiving

“Thanksgiving is an emotional time. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often”

Johnny Carson

You GUYS! I have been both mentally & physically prepping my body, mind & soul for the obscene glutinous journey it is about to embark on this Thanksgiving Weekend. All of my stretchiest of leggings & my flowiest of shirts have been laundered, pressed & packed for the cottage & I’m literally counting down the MILISECONDS until 3:01pm this coming Friday afternoon! The excitement is literally so real. Now… I wanted to do something a TAD bit different on the blog this year to commemorate the holiday, & because Thanksgiving IS heavily centred around food & that infamous big Turkey Dinner – AKA you’ll likely be spending a TON of time in the kitchen & dining room – I thought I’d share a few of my favourite kitchen & dining room inspirations, accompanied by some of my personal kitchen entertaining tips for Thanksgiving!!!
