She’s a real pretty one! Gold, pink and glitter is the perfect combination, if you ask me. For my sixth day of my 12 days of ornaments, I chose this beauty from Hudson’s Bay that has a very romantic, vintage feel to it. Handmade by Silver Owl, each ornament is one-of-a-kind (and dated and signed so you know for sure there’s not another one like it), which makes it extra special.
Looking for the perfect stocking stuffer for a cocktail-savvy friend? This Wishbone Bottle Opener from Anthropologie would be a great gift! Love that it’s brass, so chic! Gone are the days of boring stainless.
With just a few tweaks to the good ol’ gin and tonic, you’ve got a drink that’s both timeless and trendy. Mixologist and co-owner of Bent restaurant (not to mention son of chef Susur Lee) Kai Bent-Lee shared the recipe with us. Check it out below!
Did you know that Canadian Living is Style at Home’s sister publication? Well, now you do! And I always love to see what amazing treats they’re coming up with over there, especially during the holidays. This amazing recipe for Chocolate Cherry Cups looks like a sure holiday hit. I think you’ll want to add this to your Christmas recipe repertoire!
A little glitter never hurt anyone, did it? I love how these letter ornaments from Pottery Barn feature a German glitter finish. I thought that they’d bring something unexpected to the tree by writing out family members’ initials or a holiday sentiment – and that’s why I chose them for my fifth day of my 12 days of ornaments series.
Can you image anything more extravagant than going to breakfast at Tiffany’s? I had the pleasure of doing just that this morning for their annual Holiday Press Breakfast. Check out my pictures from the Breakfast at Tiffany & Co.’s new Canadian Flagship store, located at 150 Bloor Street West in Toronto.
With the weather getting colder and colder, I am starting to make my favourite Rustic Vegetable Chickpea Soup again on a more regular basis. The recipe is from Jennifer Pallian’s fabulous food site called Foodess. It is super simple, healthy and relatively fast to make. Oh, and incredibly delicious! Great for easy dinner parties or to make for one (and enjoy the leftovers throughout the week!) Full recipe from Foodess below.
This isn’t just my favourite green smoothie, it’s also my favourite smoothie to balance holiday-induced binging. So go ahead and eat, drink and be merry – just be sure to chase your sugar cookies and rum-laden egg nog with a detoxifying green smoothie the next morning. You’ll feel so much better because of it!
Of all the drinks that handsome mixologist Kai Bent-Lee made with the magic SodaStream touch, this one was my very fave. Not only for the pretty presentation, but also for that quintessential ginger-lemon taste that seems synonymous with winter. Even better? It’s easy peasy to make, and we have the recipe below!
