My Intentions for 2021

New year, new chapter? I dunno…so far, 2021 feels very much like an extension of 2020. With the way January’s been unfolding, it doesn’t seem like we’re getting off this rollercoaster anytime soon! That being said, it does feel like a ‘fresh start’ for me in many respects and I’m capitalizing on that where I can. At the start of every year, I try to set the tone for the year by creating intentions for myself. These intentions are normally a reflection of what worked and what didn’t work in the previous year (you can read my 2020 intentions here)….

White Christmas Cookie Cocktail

Folks, we are in the home stretch and Christmas will be here in less than 2 weeks! After literally working overtime hours for the last 3ish consecutive months, as of last Friday, I’m officially in holiday mode! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to put on the Christmas tunes, my stretchy paints (not that I haven’t been wearing them all year, haha), and start whipping up some delicious food and drinks for the holiday season! When asked a few weeks ago about the kinds of recipes they wanted to see me share for the holidays, my Instagram community…

3 Easy Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Canadian Thanksgiving is in just a couple of days. But if you’re anything like me, you’re still in last minute prep mode. We have planned a beautiful Fall harvest themed tablescape for our Thanksgiving décor, as I shared here. Our main protein has also been purchased and is thawing in the fridge. Check, check. However, the side dishes are still a bit up in the air. Each year, I have a general idea of what ingredients I’d like to use (cranberries and pumpkins go hand in hand with Thanksgiving, in my opinion). But I like to try to incorporate traditional…

A Fall Harvest Tablescape for Thanksgiving

Presentation is just as important as flavour. As the oft-quoted saying goes, we eat with our eyes first. But outside of how we present our food when entertaining, in my opinion, one of the most critical aspects of the Thanksgiving experience is décor. Have you started getting ready for Thanksgiving? Honestly, there are few holidays I get as excited about! Mainly because Thanksgiving involves gathering with loved ones, expressing our gratitude, and breaking bread. While the occasion will undoubtedly look a little different this year, I do hope you are still able to celebrate in an intimate setting. Alex and…

Fall Home Essentials 2020

Work from home has never looked so chic. Fall is in full swing, and I’m starting to think of ways to update my home and office to channel the best of our season. As you may know, over the past few months, I’ve been refreshing my home with new pieces – both big and small. This gave us something to look forward to during lockdown. I’m now repurposing some of these pieces and matching them with new accents that I’ve recently picked up to create a Fall inspired look for my home. With that, a few of the multipurpose pieces…

Okay, so we’re about 7+ months deep into this pandemic. Maybe you were already a working from home pro before it started.

And with an impending second wave, it looks like we will have to buckle up for this ride for a lot longer. As someone who has done this for the last 3 years, I feel confident in being able to share these tips on how to successfully work from home with you….

My Downtown Toronto Condo Patio Makeover

The time has finally come for me to share my rooftop patio reveal with you guys! This was such a long time in the making. TBH, although my husband and I finished this a couple months ago, we wanted to just enjoy the fruits of our labour once we were done. There were too many beautiful days this summer for us to pass up the opportunity to selfishly relish in what we’d done. So, #sorrynotsorry this blog post is a bit overdue! The Before & After I guess you can say the overall vibe we were going for was a…

5 Tips to Take Your Barbecue Game to the Next Level

As you all know, I take food very seriously. In fact, I’ve always loved to cook. However, one thing I’ve admittedly been happy to give up the reigns to has been barbecuing. Why? Not because I don’t enjoy it or think it’s a man’s job (believe me, I love a good hash mark as much as anyone else, and I don’t subscribe to gender roles). But because I know barbecuing is a whole ‘nother ball game. When I do something, I like to do it right; and if I don’t have the time to commit to something, I prefer not…

Strawberry Floradora Cocktail Recipe

Another beautiful summer week, another beautiful summer cocktail! I’ve been absolutely LOVING discovering and experimenting with new cocktails this year! TBH, had we not been in our current circumstances, I don’t think I’d have honed my bartending skills as much as I have. Today, I’m sharing a original fruity cocktail that has the loveliest pink hue: a Strawberry Floradora (made WAYYY easier with the help of Georgian Bay Strawberry Smashed Soda). What’s a Floradora? “What’s a Floradora?”, you ask? Well, the short answer is a pink drink typically made with gin, lime juice, raspberry syrup or liqueur, and ginger ale…
