Bavarian Christmas Market

I spent the weekend in Germany and had enough time to sneak in a visit to the beautiful Christmas market in Augsburg, the third oldest city in Germany.

London: The Christmas Edit

Every year my family and I go to our home in Florida for Christmas, so I always find myself needing to get my chilly holiday fix in before I swap evergreens for palm trees. From skating at the Swarovski Ice Rink to  braving Oxford St. to see the Christmas lights, check out what I've been up to this November!

Grab the same pair of personalized stockings here!

Birthday Decor

I celebrated my 25th birthday over the weekend, and wanted to share some of my birthday party decor with you - all picked out by my lovely roommate Sara! Our little celebration was shades of peach, pink, gold and silver.

Munich Oktoberfest

I just got back to London and I've had a pretty eventful September. Having spent the most of the month in New York and Toronto, I was ready to come back to Europe again - and I was even more excited knowing Oktoberfest was just around the corner!

If you're planning on going to Oktoberfest, know that the Sch├╝tzen-Festzelt is a great tent to spend your day drinking in! We had an amazing time there, however the only thing I would recommend is to reserve a table before going, so you're not walking around looking for a place to crash for the day.

Copycat Ikea Meatballs

It's raining and pouring in London. Which means it's time to stay locked inside, cozy up by the fire (if I had one), drink a glass of wine and nosh on some deliciousness aka... comfort food.

Copycat Ikea Meatballs.
Yes you heard me. Yes they are delicious. Now go and create them at home because they're quick and easy to make!

Review: Her Majesty's Pleasure

I've been home in Toronto for the past week, and today I opted for an after-work treat at Her Majesty's Pleasure, a spa/cocktail bar hybrid in the heart of King West Village.

A Weekend in Switzerland

The last two weekends have been jam-packed with music festival activities!

Last weekend we hopped on a quick flight to Zurich for Streetparade, and then this weekend we found ourselves in NYC at Electric Zoo.

Along with the usual festival shenanigans, we brunched... a lot. And we ate bagels... a lot. See the pictures and resto details after the jump!

Currently Craving

1. A trip to Zurich! It's next on my hit list at the end of the month.

2. Dorm room decorations. August has me thinking back-to-school everything (even though I am no longer a student).... Also, check out these dorm rooms you'll never see on the campus tour. Yikes.

3. I think my mother would appreciate this mug.

4. A test tube flower chandelier (that's a mouthful) might seem unnecessary, buuuut I need it. This would also look fab as party or wedding decor.

5. I'm still in Berlin, so a scoop from Anna Durkes would make me pretty happy on this 38° day.

6. MEETING MARLIN!!! In 7 weeks, I'll be able to meet this little guy and my family will be bringing him home to Canada! You can follow Marlin and his ten littermates on their puppy blog.

Italia! Portofino, Lake Garda & More...

We just got back from Italy and we had the perfect holiday. I definitely have post-vacation blues!

We began our trip in Milan, then made the trek by car to Portofino, Santa Margherita and Sestri Levante. A few days later we headed to Lake Garda, and then we ended our holidays in beautiful Verona!

As usual, I have highlighted where we stayed, played and ate at the bottom of this post. Happy reading!

Travel Diary: Berlin

I've been to Berlin more times than I can count on my fingers and toes! Most of my favourite restaurants are in Kreuzberg which is where I used to live. My favourite street in Berlin is Bergmannstrasse (closest subway stops are Gneisenaustrasse or Mehringdamm) and you will definitely find something very delicious there.

My favourite restaurants on Bergmannstrasse are Pagode (cheap Thai food!), Good Morning Vietnam (this one is a bit hidden off the main street, but once you find it they have a beautiful terrace on the roof. It's perfect for a summer night.) and Parlamento Degli Angeli for Italian.

Currently Craving

1. Double-bar sunnies from ASOS.

2. A Greek holiday. Stat.

3. A beautiful ring from Tamara Gomez, who I had the lovely opportunity to meet at an Etsy seller studio visit this week.

4. A taste of these new frappuuccinos. So what if it has as much sugar as a litre of Coke

5. Another Moroccan pouf! Mine is from Wayfair (yes, this is a photo of my bedroom in London!) but there are some wonderful albeit more expensive options on Etsy. The print above the bed is from RachIllustrates.

6. My new summer staple. Starry-eyed sandals.

A Weekend in Paris

We went to Paris for the weekend at the end of May, and here's a quick recap of the trip! Since it was our first time in Paris, we hit up all the touristy spots - The Louvre, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower and Arc De Triomphe just to name a few. We also got to see the love locks before they were taken down. Check out our highlights below!

PS: One of our favourite food spots was brunch at Le Fumoir. Go!!!

Palm Island Life

Some photos from my recent trip back to my second home, Palm Island, Florida. I've been going here since I was a kid and it was so sweet to be back to that old Florida feelin'.

Some fresh grouper & a dark n' stormy from my favorite Floridian resto, Temptation.

Southwestern Deviled Eggs

A great alternative to traditional deviled eggs, these southwestern deviled eggs are packed with bacon, cheddar and sour cream. They're perfect for a special occasion -- I made these over Easter!

Review: Cheeky Parlour

I think I've found my favourite mani-pedi spot in London! I give you... Cheeky Parlour.

A mani-pedi will set you back £41 at this joint, which I first thought was ridiculous (coming from NYC where you can literally get both for $25), but I am now finding out the true costs of London life. This really ain't that bad, plus, you get a free glass of wine with the combo. And it's just so girly and cute.

Time for Tea

I recently had the chance to go to the famous afternoon tea at Sketch, which had been at the top of my list for quite a while. You can checkout the menu here, but my favourites had to be the mini blueberry ├ęclairs and the cucumber ricotta sandwiches. All I can say is, my mouth is watering again as I write this post.

How cute is the ceramic tableware? I've been seriously inspired to go find some goodies like this for my own home, since the originals by David Shringley are a touch over budget for me. Check some cheaper options below! 

1.  This Seahorse cup from KinaCeramicDesign might be for kids, but that doesn't mean I can't have one too, right?

2. I need to host a tea party immediately. This tea set will be the guest of honour. Enough said. 

3. This mug with gold spikes is currently sitting on my desk at work. The spikes protect your hands from getting too hot AND act as mini hand massagers. It's a win-win.

4.  Your guests will definitely do a double take when your bring out the tea in this doll head cup by ENDEceramics.

Columbia Road Flower Market

Hey! How are you? Thanks for stopping by, and welcome to my very first blog post! I moved from Brooklyn to London in November and apart from the rain, I am really diggin' it here. 

Every weekend brings a chance to explore something new in a city that is not yet familiar, so on a beautiful Sunday I decided to hit up Columbia Road flower market
