Delicious bacon wrapped recipes for bacon lovers everywhere!

8 Bacon Wrapped Recipes (Because Bacon Is Pretty Awesome)

Food/Snacks by

Do we really need a reason to share a collection of bacon wrapped recipes? Probably not. We just want to try them all! Some of these are on the slightly healthier/paleo side of the bacon spectrum, while others (like the hot dog) are just decadent for the heck of it. Either way, these recipes are totally making us drool. Onward to the bacon! As a kid, I LOVED Brussels sprouts…

Fall Picks For Girls From Joe Fresh

Fall Picks For Girls From Joe Fresh

Littles by

Shopping for back to school clothing is pretty much my favourite reason — both when I’m shopping for my daughter AND for myself. Fall fashion, IMHO is the best of the whole year and I’m always psyched to grow my wardrobe come September. Joe Fresh became a fast favourite for us when we were living in Peterborough because it meant I could shop for Gretchen’s clothes while I was grocery shopping.…

Cool Back To School Lunch Gear!

Fawned Finds by

Anyone else counting the day until the kids head back? Ok, so maybe it’s the last week of summer vacation and I’m getting a little antsy, but I LOVE this time of year — the weather, the newness, and the fact that my daughter’s been asking to go back to school since July means she’s DEFINITELY psyched about the start of a brand new year! Since many of us are about…

The cutest Star Wars earrings!

May The Force Be With Your Ears

Fawned Finds by

There’s a bit of a friendly divide in our household. I’m firmly a Star Wars girl, while Rich has been hooked on Star Trek since childhood. We’ve both dabbled in each others’ worlds, but we’re pretty stuck on our own side. It makes for some seriously nerdy conversations around the house, but I love every moment of it. Either way, if you’re a Star Wars fan, you’ll probably think these…

Get Tweedz And Stop Fighting With Your Headphones

Fawned Finds by

Tangled headphones are pretty much the worst. I can’t stand reaching in my bag to pull out a garbled mess of earbud cord which, no matter how nicely I’d wrapped it when I put it away, has been tied into a riddle of the Sphinx-esque knot that’ll take me 8 1/2 minutes to unravel. Grrrr. Tweedz is a company that totally gets your earbud frustrations and knows all to well the tangled…

Treehouse Big Day Out 2!

We Want To Send You To The 2nd Annual Treehouse Big Day Out!

Wanderlust by

I grew up watching Treehouse with my little brother. The channel launched two weeks after he was born, I was 11, and I would watch all of the cartoons with them — secretly loving them on my own, even if I might have been a little too old. Shows like Little Bear, Franklin, Postman Pat, Zoboomafoo, and so many more — it was a bit of a tradition that we’d cozy up together…

There Are So Many Ways To Use Almond Fresh… Come And See!

Fawned Finds by

When I was very little, my mom took to doctor after doctor, trying to figure out the source of my severe stomach pain. Many years and tears later, after seeing specialists in different cities and my mother being completely worn out trying to get to the root of the problem, a lovely, elderly German woman at a health food shop said, “Oh, just stop giving her dairy.” Desperate, my mom…

Healthy Ice Cream? It's A Beautiful Thing, My Friends

Healthy Ice Cream At Home? It’s A Beautiful Thing!

Fawned Finds by

Back when I was trying out as many paleo recipes as I could get my hands on, I learned about the secret of making ice cream from bananas. I tried it a few times, but I never got the awesome, creamy texture that I’d seen all over Pinterest. I had pretty much given up on the idea when the folks from Yonanas contacted me to see if I’d like to try…

Pardon My French, But I Might Need This Mug For My Collection

Fawned Finds by

I have a big of a thing for mugs. We have an entire cupboard at our house dedicated to mugs (and one to tea and coffee, actually) and though it’s been sorted through and pared-down each time we’ve moved, there are still enough caffeine vessels in there to sink a small ship. However, when I see a mug like this in my travels — aka when I was at Chapters…

Fawned Friday

Fawned Friday by

Good morning, mes amis! After a few crazy nights of extreme humidity and one of the hottest days on record in our town, the air is finally a bit more crisp and pleasant this morning! I just got back from scooting across the street to grab a coffee from our nearest cafe and now it’s time to get down to business. It’s hard to believe that there’s just a few…

"Where Did You Get Your Glasses?"

“Where Did You Get Your Glasses?”

Fawned Finds by

Many of my friends who are glasses-wearers have made the jump to contacts, but as someone who has only been wearing glasses for a few years, I’m still LOVING the fact that there’s a whole new bit of my wardrobe that I get to play with each day. Without fail, when I’m travelling or even just running errands around town, someone always remarks on my glasses and asks where I…
