Clay offers a select, seasonal menu featuring fresh, local ingredients. They’re open for brunch and lunch. I was invited to check out the new space, and immediately fell in love with the clean, simple design. (more…)
Monsters You Should Know is a delightful little book chock full of monsters from around the world that you may or may not know. I’m a big fan of folklore and legends, so I knew I had to get my hand on this book. It’s a beautiful hardcover book with full colour illustrations by Emma SanCartier. Inside there are 17 monsters brought to life with charming illustrations. (more…)
Kikkerland is such a fun brand. I’ve been a big fan for a long time. I first discovered the brand through their travel gear (super handy luggage scales and packable laundry bags have been a lifesaver!). Now that I’m a homeowner, I’m finding fun and useful ways to use Kikkerland day to day life.
This is the tool that I didn’t know I needed until I discovered it. I have a mini herb garden that’s constantly producing basil, oregano, mint, thyme and parsley.

It’s up to Buffy and the gang to get to the bottom of this musical mystery before everyone dances themselves to death.(more…)

Luckily, Buxom has come out with a new lip powder called Pillow Pout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder. Since it is a powder, the product is a lot lighter. I received the colours Cozy Up, Spoil Me and Kiss Me. This product has a unique sponge applicator, with the powder kept inside the cap.
Urban Barn has a gorgeous fall collection that’s hitting stores now! It’s incorporating everything that I love right now. Dark florals paired with “millennial” pink, geometric shapes, mixed metals and more. Did I mention the incredibly comfy looking chairs? Check it out!
