Get “Spring” Ready!

“Winter is when an ocean of miserable water falls from the sky. Spring is when an ocean of miserable water gushes out my face.”

Although it legitimately pains me to accept that winter – or whatever warped smorgasbord of weather we were just subjected to over the past three months – is coming to a close, I am hesitantly excited for spring/summer & what it has to offer. I say hesitantly only because spring – for lack of a better word – SUCKS in my personal opinion, due to overly glutinous levels of rain, mud & all things “yuck” – it’s sole redeeming quality is that my birthday just so happens to be in April, & for those who’ve been following along for a while now – well, you know this is my absolute favourite day of the year! Anywho – I’m doing my best to embrace all things spring by looking forward to new styles & trends, because with a change in season, comes changes in our health & beauty routines!  Weather definitely has an impact on our skin & obviously plays an influential role in our style selections, so with a few minor adjustments here & there, I’m showing you how to be “spring ready” come March 20th(more…)


Valentine Dessert Roundup

“A party without cake is just a meeting”

Julia Child

I honestly can’t say that I’ve EVER blogged or written so much about Valentine’s Day in such a condensed time frame! And to be quite frank… I’m more than one hundred percent sure that I’ve exhausted all semi-witty intros I can possibly think of. Which is just peachy considering I oh so willingly decided to dedicate this entire month to literally the one, single “day” that is Valentine’s Day. Le sigh. Anyways, enough whining from me – I just felt you needed a little “disclaimer situation” for future posts this month – onto the good stuff! Valentine’s Day Desserts… but ones that are actually good for you!! EEP! (more…)


Spook-tacular Spirits… Literally

“Drink up witches”

The single best day of the whole entire year is a mere four days away… I seriously wish I could just press pause on this whole situation called life & soak up every single last ounce of this haunting time of the month. Alas, the powers of Click are regrettably reserved solely for Adam & the big screen, & I’m left attempting my very best to bask in all of Hallows Eve glory whilst it’s still socially acceptable to… because I literally celebrate Halloween all year round! SO, why not raise a glass to all things horrifying with these three Spook-tacular “Spirits”… do you see what I did there? (more…)


Summer Swaps – “Better For You” Cheese & Charcuterie Boards

“I was supposed to have a nice body for people to look at this summer. There’s just one small problem, I like food better than I like people”

I truly love all things food. Food is amazing. One of my more recent food obsessions (along with seemingly everyone else on Planet Earth), is the ever so Insta-worthy delicacy that is Charcuterie Boards! They’re the perfect staple for any summer soiree, however they’re not always the most “healthy” of dinner party options! So today, I wanted to include a “better for you” alternative, because let’s face it… they’re way too good NOT to eat! (more…)
