Delicious coconut blueberry popsicles

Coconut Blueberry Popsicles

You would not believe how incredibly easy it is to make your own popsicles at home. In fact, the most difficult part about making popsicles at home is having enough patience to allow them to freeze for long enough! That was certainly the most difficulty I had in making these coconut blueberry popsicles. Ever since my husband and I served ice cream sandwiches and popsicles as a late night snack at our wedding, I’ve been obsessed with popsicles. I feel like I’m cheating on my first love (ice cream). After being inspired by the Happy Pops popsicles at our wedding…

Getting the VIP Treatment at the 2017 Rogers Cup

Last Wednesday, I was given the VIP treatment at the Rogers Cup, courtesy of National Bank, the presenting sponsor. I had the absolute pleasure of being able to host my very own VIP party for myself and 8 of my closest friends on the rooftop of the National Bank Booth! I love going to the Rogers Cup – it’s always so exciting and entertaining! Every year, I attend as a regular spectator. But this year’s experience was obviously extra special. The Rogers Cup was held this year between August 7th and 13th at the Aviva Centre at York University, which…

Brussels Sprout and Pancetta Mac and Cheese

Mac and cheese is the ultimate comfort food – can we all agree?! So, you might be wondering why I’ve decided to post a comfort food recipe in the middle of the summer. Well, if you live in Toronto, then you’ll know how rainy this summer has been. I can’t think of a single week that we’ve had consistently good weather. I don’t know about you, but I feel like I actually need more comfort on rainy summer days than during the winter, when we all expect to have bad weather! So, I reserve a bowl of mac and cheese…

Coconut and Chia Seed Smoothie Bowl

I must admit, I was a little intimidated by smoothie bowls at first. I had no idea what the heck they were when I started seeing them pop up all over the place. I used to think they were just a ‘trend’, and that you could only get them from healthy restaurants, like Kupfert & Kim or Impact Kitchen. In terms of making them at home, I thought that was only for health nuts and nutritionists because I didn’t think the average person would have a stash of chia seeds and all the superfoods necessary to execute one of these…

Guide to Ontario Lavender Fields

A bouquet of dried Lavender, could there be anything more fragrant and pretty? Yes, actually. How about ENTIRE FIELDS full of Lavender?! Rows and rows of the gorgeous purple plant in full bloom – it’s probably one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen, and a total Instagrammer’s paradise! It’s been on my bucket list for a while to visit the bountiful Lavender fields in Provence or England. But I never realized that we have so many Lavender fields right here in Ontario! I discovered that there are actually more than 20 Lavender fields within driving distance of Toronto!…

Entertaining Guide: How to Host a Chic Picnic at Home like a Pro (Without Being One)

It’s all in the detail! Whether it’s a wedding, birthday party, or even if you’re just having friends over for a night in, the details are almost always what matter most when it comes to throwing an unforgettable party! Whenever I go to a party and the host has made an extra effort to impress through little details, I always find the experience to be so much more special. In my recent blog post, I showed you our romantic chic picnic in the park with Boursin. Today, I’ve teamed up with Boursin Canada again to elevate the chic picnic experience!…

Easy Shakshuka Recipe

Tomato, tom-ah-to, potato, pot-ah-to, shakshuka, shakshouka (gesundheit!). It’s a dish spelled a few different ways and that sounds a bit like someone sneezing! Its origins are still subject to (sometimes, heated) debate, with some sources saying it dates back to the Ottoman Empire and some saying it originated in North Africa before being brought to Israel by North African Jews. It’s a very popular dish in Israel, Palestine, Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco. Either way, I think it’s safe to call it a Middle Eastern slash North African dish, and it’s absolutely delicious! Traditionally served for breakfast, I can…

Trio of Crostini with All-Canadian Cheese for Canada150

Canada’s 150th birthday is just a couple days away! In my last style post, I mentioned I’d be keeping the celebrations going this week with a Canada150 food post.

Soundpays: The Newest Revolution in Mobile Shopping

When Shazam came out, I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread! I could be anywhere and hear a song I needed to know the name of, and I could find out at the simple press of a button. As a music lover, this was like pure magic! You know what else I love besides music? Shopping. Now there’s an app which is basically the Shazam for mobile shopping, and it’s called Soundpays. Soundpays is a new mobile wallet app, but it’s unlike any other mobile wallet out there. Based in Toronto, it’s Canadian innovation at its finest…
