Food: Honey

Did you know that honey is the only food that doesn’t spoil?

I learned this tidbit of information at my friends’ wedding this past weekend (Congrats Catherine & Steve!). A friend of theirs is a beekeeper and prepared little jars of honey as favours. Sweet, right?

The Friday Five: Food

I just love when food – desserts especially – are beautifully presented. These five sweets look delicious and are perfect for sharing with friends and family.

Canadian Design Bloggers Celebrate

Canadian design bloggers have really got it going on!

Last weekend I had the pleasure to meet and mingle with an amazing group of design bloggers at the Canadian design bloggers meetup held at Brassaii in Toronto. Vitania of Verdigris Vie & Daniella of Dress Design Decor organized a most beautiful event with the help of generous sponsors (IKEA, Delta, CIL, as well as House & Home, Crate & Barrel, Style at Home, Kravet, and Rowenta). The party was full of style.

The very stylish Tommy Smythe shared some photos and stories from his recent trip to Scandinavia and kept the crowd laughing (photos here).

IKEA + prosecco = two of my favourite things

The event was beautifully organized, very well-attended, and it was an inspiring evening to say the least. I’m already looking forward to the next meetup – as I know many of the bloggers I met are too!

Happy Birthday Mackenzie!

It’s Mackenzie‘s birthday today! Hooray! I hope it’s full of glitter and fun!

Bring on the Bubbly!

The past couple of weeks have been full of good news, exciting events and reunions with far away friends.

You know what that means chez moi, don’t you?

But of course, champagne!

Hope your days are full of celebrations too!
