• A Beau-ti-ful Life

    Hot cocoa and a Sunday fire, galloping in an open field, the cedar surf, an African sunset, freshly baked panne au chocolat, starry sky dancing, silk and cashmere, slow braises and red wine, eggs for dinner, gallivanting around the world, newly oiled tack, being upside-down, ice cream at the boardwalk, pink single speeds, lavender fields, heirloom tomatoes, clapboard cottage, thundering ocean, flannel pajamas, fresh cut flowers, standing at the edge of the cliff.

It’s A Beautiful Life

Hello again. So much has happened since I last posted. I’ve broken the golden blogging rule of not abandoning your site and readers, and for that I apologize. But there are times in life where this is a necessity, and the past year of my life have been a whirlwind. I’ve been on an incredible … Continue reading


Sunday Mornings Were Made For These

Home Made Egg and Bacon English Muffin Yes it’s indulgent, and no you don’t want to have these every other day (although you’ll want to).  Super high protein and high in fat but oh-so-good.  Make sure you get only the best bacon (sodium nitrate free) and organic, free range eggs.   And timing is everything … Continue reading

A Magical Stay in the Yurts at Wya Point, Tofino

We were greeted by a smokey scent of cedar as we approached the check-in at Wya Point Campground.  Located between Tofino and Ucluelet, Wya Point is a First Nations operated and owned camping site near Ucluth Beach.  We were here to stay in the beachfront, Mongolian styled yurts.  I listened to the wood burning stove crackle … Continue reading


Turning Two

Hard to believe but my little pup is turning 2 today! She’s a whopping 75lbs (perfect for her breed) but she still insists on sitting on my lap.  Besides pretending to be a lap dog, here are some of the more peculiar things she does: -sticking her butt up and pushing her face onto the … Continue reading


My Secret Garden

I set out a goal this year to learn how to grow my own organic vegetables.  I had some limited experience of various success before  growing herbs and edible  goodies at my home but I had never taken on my own plot at a community garden.  So I signed up for a farming workshop by … Continue reading


Insta-What? My New Love is CINEMAGRAM

I can’t stop using the iPhone app Cinemagram.  The photographers from the exquisite blog From Me To You popularized this animated technique with their somewhat haunting yet highly stylized moving images that teased us with the gentle sway of an earring on a girl, or a swish of a lady’s dress while the background seemed frozen … Continue reading

Red Tide and Happy Canada Day

Red is definitely having it’s moment and there’s no better day than on Canada Day to showcase some of my favourite picks in this fire hydrant hue. This Alice + Olivia Boxy Shift Dress is very Bizou Bizou a la Megan on Mad Men. Speaking of mad, I’m crazy about mini purses and this red … Continue reading


7 Questions With Canadian Artist Jessica Gowling….And A Giveaway!

I met Canadian artist and printmaker Jessica Gowling last December at the One Of A Kind Show.  I was immediately captivated by her etching of two wolves who seemed to stare right through me.  Being a nature lover, I was drawn to Jessica’s subjects which often consist of birds, bears, deers, hooves, and of course, … Continue reading
