Fall Nails

Tuesday, August 30, 2016



Have you heard? This rather moody and beautifully dark inky-looking green shade of nail polish is said to become one of the ‘it’ hues this autumn. Supposedly its dark and versatile undertone makes for the ideal fall accessory.

I’m totally on board, you?

P.S: Nifty manicure tip.
P.P.S: Plus, tons more...

Yogurt Cherries

Monday, August 29, 2016


Quick, before they are all gone! Dip some end-of-season cherries in Greek yogurt mixed with a dash of vanilla extract, then lay them out on wax paper and freeze. After about 30 minutes, you can enjoy the most scrumptious snack ever!

Try it, it's SO good:)

P.S: Also, this cherry nice cream.
P.P.S: Plus, here is a nifty cherry pitting trick that you might like.

Early Autumn Accessory: Backpack







Can you feel the slight season shift in the air? I love this time of the year when it still feels like summer, but something's already telling us that crispier times are coming.

Anyway, somehow each year around this time, I tend to reach for a backpack instead of my usual oversized tote or the worn-out farmers' market bag. I don’t know if it’s the old back-to-school routine still holding onto me or September always proves to be busy, but just last night I took out my backpack and I’m ready to roll.

Above are a few sassy inspirations if you fancy embracing this rather comfy style. Any favourites?

P.S: Two sassy ways to tie your scarf this fall.
P.P.S: Plus, plaid with plaid (and more plaid).

Fresh Flower Tip


Sometimes I get a beautiful and fresh bunch of peonies, dahlias or tulips - with a few buds still firmly closed - in hopes they will blossom any day now, but a few days later instead of opening up fully, they start wilting.

Hmm, so after a bit of research, I took Carly's advice and now I always encourage my freshly bought bunch by cutting its stems on an eagle and then placing them in a glass filled with warm water for just a minute before moving them to a vase filled with cold water. If you do that your fresh blooms will open to their maximum size. It's amazing!

P.S: Also, this.
P.P.S: And that.
