My life File: Blush Shop

On Tuesday I shared what I wore to a lovely afternoon tea party at Blush Shop, and now is time to take you inside Michele's beautiful shop :) Hope you enjoy them, and if you don't follow her already on Instagram, you seriously are missing out! She has incredible style and her photos are always gorgeous, a must for sure!

Great Finds File: Shopbop Friends & Family

Well, well, Shopbop is having their Friends and Family sale so this would be the time to get anything that's been on your radar, because you'll be saving 25% ;) In my opinion, I'd be getting things you can wear for Summer, like comfy flat espadrilles and cute sandals, totes that would be great for weekends, beach trips, or just farmer's markets; and of course, cute little summer dresses that can be dressed both up and down ;)

This would also be a great time to invest in a classic bag, like a timeless satchel. My choices would be this, this or this. And if you're looking for a statement floral top, this is the prettiest I've seen in a while! Happy shopping ;)

Outfits File: Stripes, lace and leopard

As I was saying yesterday, I had a lovely afternoon at Blush Shop on Sunday, and this is what I wore for the tea party Michele hosted. I have to tell you, this skirt is the most comfortable pencil skirt I have ever had. Both the lace and the lining are stretchy making it feel incredibly comfortable and not restricted at all, so I highly recommend it if you like it, comes in white too, just saying ;)

On a different note, I've been having some issues with my links so I'm including them in photos as well, hoping they will work!

Wearing: Zara top / BaubleBar Maharaja Necklace / Ray-Ban Aviators / Pixie Market Jesse Lace Skirt / Marais Fay Heels / Tory Burch Robinson Satchel (middy version here)

My life file: Eventful weekend

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I had a good one, starting with a fun night out with my Strive Life crew on Friday to see our friends Craig Stickland and Natural Animal perform. These guys super talented and I really recommend you check out their music, so so good! Then on Saturday I celebrated Matthew's 4th birthday (four!!!) with a picnic at the park ;) And on Sunday, I headed to Guelph with Jenny for an afternoon tea party at Blush Shop where we got together with some fellow bloggers, we sipped tea, had some sweets and shopped a little bit (not too bad huh?!) Hope yours was great too! Here are some snaps from last week, including some sneak peeks at upcoming posts ;)

Went to check out Indigo's Summer collection and took tons of photos that I'll share soon (so much good stuff! as usual)

Food File: Crostinis four ways

The other day I had my friends Jenny and Marissa over for a little business meeting, and when it was time for lunch I went with the easiest (yet delicious) fix: Crostinis. There's seriously no science in making these and they make a great appetizer too. All you have to do is improvise with whatever you have in your fridge (hope you got some cheese!) and you are good to go! Here are some ideas:

This is what I made:
One: Ricotta, sliced strawberries, hazelnut shavings, honey
Two: Goat cheese, sautéed mushrooms in coconut oil, fleur de sel, arugula
Three: Mozarella cheese, tomatoes, olive oil, basil, sea salt, pepper
Four: Ricotta, blueberries, shaved hazelnuts, honey

If I would have had brie cheese I would have swapped the ricotta and blueberries from number 4 for some  brie + pear, but as I said, this was totally improvised! Just thought of mentioning it, as it's a another great pairing ;)

Obsessed File: Is it Spring yet?
