Happy Thursday guys! As some of you may know, we are in the process of dreaming up ideas for our living room overhaul. Currently our furniture is really dark and we haven’t done too much with the decor. We moved into our new home last year, and since then, have been picking away; room by room. I really want to go ‘light and bright’ (like every other area of my house), but still want the room to feel warm and cozy.
Life & Style
As some of you already know, we have a beautiful lavender farm five minutes down the road from us and because it’s in peak season, I’ve been cooking with it a lot. The aroma, the flavour, the health benefits… it’s one of my favourite herbs! I invited some girlfriends over for brunch, so I decided to whip up a batch of Lavender Honey Biscuits. They are such a beautiful touch when entertaining, and the lavender flavour mixed with the honey is perfection!
Looking for a pretty (and delicious) summer cocktail to serve at your next dinner party with your girlfriends? You’re in luck. This Lavender and Cherry Rosé Spritzer is perfect for a hot summer day, and the hints of lavender add a subtle flavour that you wouldn’t normally find in your typical cocktail. I have been OBSESSED with lavender lately.
I just returned from a 5 day business trip at Unico Resort, and it was incredible. Nick was unable to join me due to work commitments, so I took my mom along and it was so nice spending the week together. This was our first mother-daughter trip, and we had a great time. Lots of laughs, cocktails, and sun. Speaking of sun, it was SO hot in Mexico this week. I sweat in places I didn’t realize I could (sorry for the visual).
I am SO excited about this blog post, and I am thrilled that so many of you messaged me with your skincare questions. I know a ton of women (including myself) who struggle with their skin. It’s either too oily or too dry, you’re noticing fine lines developing or dark lines under your eyes. Hormone changes in pregnancy can wreak havoc on your skin (ask my hubby how my face, back and chest looked during my first pregnancy.. I had large welts ALL over, it was awful).
