We’re well into winter, but the mild weather and the fact that we live on Lake Ontario means that it wasn’t until recently that we finally saw snow — and it all came at once in a flurry! Thankfully, we were clever enough to get our new set of snow tires before the big onslaught of fluffy whiteness which makes me feel pretty warm and cozy inside. Speaking of warm and cozy, this…

Finally, A Gluten Free Lasagne That Tastes AMAZING

Dinner/Food by

This ones for all of my gluten-free pals out there! One of my FAVOURITE homemade meals in the world is lasagne, but finding a gluten-free option that actually tastes awesome is next to impossible. Most taste like a gluten-free pasta — which isn’t necessarily bad, it’s just that all we really wanted was a lasagne that tasted like white pasta, with the freedom of being a gluten-free option. Catelli has…

Stains Don’t Have To Mean The End

Fawned Finds by

I’ve always been anxious about white laundry. When I was a kid, I rarely wore white and if I did it was immediately a disaster. I’m amazed my mother didn’t just dress me in head-to-toe black just to save on doing so much laundry. I was very into getting dirty and mucking up my clothing with crafts, and I never cared too much if the knees of my pants were…

I love how something as simple as a smell can transport you back in time. When I was a little girl, some of my favourite memories were standing by my mom’s side in the kitchen, leveling off the measuring spoons as I helped her bring recipes to life. I learned so many things about food just by standing on a chair beside her as she mixed and stirred and worked…

The food we feed our families is something we, as parents, are thinking about all the time. We strive for the best produce, to find the brands we can trust, and for myself, I try to buy organic when I can. Does it happen for every single product? Of course not, but in my eyes, every single little bit helps. It’s good for me, for my family, and for the farmers…

Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Our Favourite Pirate Finds Because It’s Talk Like A Pirate Day! Yarr!

Fawned Finds by

One Halloween, when I was in elementary school, we were doing our Halloween day parade — the younger grades would dress up in their costumes and walk around the school to visit all the classrooms — I saw a friend wearing a pirate costume and I thought he was the coolest. From that moment I’d already decided my costume for the next year and my mom went all out to make…

Wanderlust by

I crossed a few items off my Life List this year, including two just this summer. First, I got my G license (yay!) and that night, actually, I got to sleep in a yurt for the first time ever — something I’ve been wanting to do for YEARS. Of course, it wasn’t just me. We ALL went to Bingemans for a three-day/two-night stay in one of their awesome yurt, while…

Fall fashion, for me, means finally getting to wear all of the coziest bits of my wardrobe that end up tucked away over the hot summer. For the last week or so, I’ve been gazing longingly at my leggings and sweaters and boots, dreaming of the day when the humidity finally takes a hike and I can bust out the layered styles I love so much! I recently shared my favourite…
