“Love the wine you’re with”

Pinterest

You GUYS… I am currently writing this from quite possibly the best Airbnb – EVER! Seriously. I realize that this is somewhat of a bold statement, but if you follow me on Insta & happened to be viewing my stories over the weekend, I am more than confident that you would 100 hundred percent back my claims. It was legit magical – like movie magical – & I am more than happy to share the details today so that you too can bask in all of the glory that is this particular Airbnb(more…)

Pinterest

Okay, I know, I know.…. I’ve done literally a MILLION Bucket List posts on both this blog & the Ambrosia Blog but truth be told I’m kind of OBSESSED with them! SUE ME. Also, to be honest, this week has been a bit taxing in terms of deadlines & workloads so a short n’ sweet Bucket List blog post is literally just about ALL I have time for, & can handle this week! So thanks in advance for bearing with me my lovely little readers! I promise to be a tad bit more innovative & creative next week 🙂 (more…)


The Perfect Ginger Beer Fall Cocktail

“Cocktails are like a present you give to yourself”

@tandjdesigns

You GUYS…. In case you weren’t following along on Insta over the weekend, one of my very best friends got MARRIED this past Sunday! It seriously could NOT have been a more perfect day – the decor was honestly so fabulously dreamy my iPhone Camera nearly exploded with pure & utter joy at what it had the PLEASURE of being exposed to that day! Also there was lots of love goin’ on, & I suppose that is also pretty great too 😛 Now seeing as how I’m still in somewhat of a “celebratory mood”, & also because tomorrow is the first OFFICIAL day of fall – SO MUCH TO BE HAPPY ABOUT – I thought I’d share this incredibly delicious Fall Cocktail with all of you today! ENJOY! (more…)


Tips for Decorating a Small Condo for Thanksgiving

“I come from a family where gravy is considered a beverage”

Erma Bombeck

There are many warranted concerns people have when transitioning into condo life; small living space, loud neighbors, high utility fees, & minimal storage are all GREAT examples of such completely warranted concerns. Being filled with sheer & utter dread that you won’t be able to decorate said “small living space” for the holidays? Yeah… not SO warranted! However this concern was legitimately at the very tip top of my list when Andrei & I signed the lease for our 600sq. foot condo in Toronto. I am obsessed with any & all holidays (although Halloween undoubtedly comes in at number one) & the mere thought that a perfectly carved Jack-O-Lantern or a neutral, rustic Christmas tree would not be within the realm of possibilities was just way too much disappointment to bear. No… this little scenario was simply NOT an option. I therefore made it my MISSION to find pieces that work in small spaces, yet still TOTALLY accomplished that nostalgic, holiday vibe I was so, so SO, craving! First up on the holiday list? Thanksgiving! Enjoy! (more…)


Festive Fall Water Infusions

“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall”

Oscar Wilde

A couple of weeks ago, I went to a cooking event for LARABARS with Ambrosia & they served the most amazing cinnamon & apple infused water! Like it was beyond, & totally inspired me to try out a few different fall flavoured variations of this quintessential summer refresher! (more…)


Fall & Thanksgiving Nail Picks

“A woman is helpless only when her nail polish is drying”

Quotes Gram

New season… new nail trends, & because I’m positively OBSESSED with having my nails done every second of every minute of every day [chips are most definitely NOT tolerated], I wanted to share my top three picks for Fall & Thanksgiving appropriate nails. (more…)


Fall Bucket List

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower”

Albert Camus

We’re a mere four days into October & I’ve literally crammed as many October/Autumn themed activities into the past 96 hours it’s almost nauseating. If you follow along in any of my social media antics, I’m sure you’ve noticed that fall has essentially thrown up all over it, especially my Insta Feed [& I kind of absolutely love it: #sorrynotsorry]. SO… to commemorate my favourite time of the year, I’ve put together a Fall Bucket List that you simply MUST try before winter rolls around! Get on it people! (more…)


Beet, Carrot, & Ginger Soup

I’ve got a thing for beets. Correction, I’ve always had a thing for beets. You know when you’d go visit your grandmother as a kid & she’d make your absolute favourite dish? Baked apple pie, waffles, cookies… pretty standard stuff. Well my dish of choice was pickled beets. Yes. This week I wanted to pay homage to one of my favourite fall foods so the post is: beet, carrot, & ginger soup. It’s un-BEET-able! Hehe. (more…)


Apple & Cinnamon Smoothie

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away”

I love all things fall. Fashion, weather, food, festivities.. I love it all! Call me crazy, but I’m not one to complain when summer comes to an end & the leaves begin to change because fall just so happens to be my absolute favourite season (winter.. now that’s a whole other story). One particularly treasured fall tradition among us Canadians happens to be apple picking, which is why I’ve dedicated this week’s smoothie to apples. (more…)


Ginger & Pear Smoothie

Summer’s coming to an end & as tans & temperatures begin to fade, so does our body’s immune system. Yes fellow health nuts, cold & flu season is fast approaching armed with sniffles, coughs, & various bodily fluids of all different colours, textures, & smells. But just because the weather is taking a turn for the worse doesn’t always mean that our health has to follow suit. (more…)
