I must admit I am not much of a baker, but I have been making a conscious effort lately to try new things with my little girl. After being a lover of Banana Bread for many many years and sampling a few recipes, I have perfected my own recipe and want to share it with you guys.

INGREDIENTS  ( Makes 1 Loaf ) 
  • 3 Ripe Bananas mashed
  • 2 Eggs
  • 13/4 cups of flour 
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of butter melted
  • 1 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • ]1/2 cup of pecans (optional)

DIRECTIONS

Combine the oil, eggs, sugar, milk, vanilla and mashed bananas.

Add the baking soda and flour.

Combine well for 2-3 minutes.

Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake in a preheated 325 degree F oven for 1 hour 20 minutes.



This banana bread recipe is so decadent and moist. There is nothing low calorie about so indulge wisely.

If Carrie Bradshaw taught us one thing, it’s that you can wear anything anywhere when you completely own the look. The iconic (and fictional) fashionista we loved on Sex & The City was a pro at breaking all the fashion rules. From masterful print-mixing to pairing tulle skirts with t-shirts, Carrie set trends that have outlasted the 6 seasons of the show, and the 14 years since it ended. One thing is for sure, she could rock the hell out of a tulle skirt. 

I recently had my Carrie Bradshaw moment with this beautiful multi-layered Tulle Skirt from the Atlantic Pacific x Halogen Collection. My huge love for playful Tulle Skirts is quite obvious and this one is ABSOLUTELY perfect.

You've be living under a rock if you've never heard of mega influencer, Blaire Eadie of Atlantic Pacific Blog. There is so much to love about her and I am inspired by her polished, yet playful style everyday. She recently collaborated with Nordstrom & Halogen to create a capsule collection of some of her favorite pieces and the collection is to die for. I was able to snag a few pieces from the collection like this matching blouse and skirt combo.This combo is so versatile and can be worn many different ways. I love the different colors of the floral print and can't wait to mix and match this outfit in future posts Do keep in mind that the collection runs a little big so it's best to size down on everything.  There are still lots of  pieces left from the collection.

I decided to step out of my comfort zone with the style of pictures that I take to try something new. This vintage leather jacket from Joyce's Closet has been on repeat. So versatile, chic and adds a bit of edge to any outfit. Getting these shots was a little risky ...lol It was shot in Balzac in -4 degrees Celsius with major traffic, but I think we captured the mood. 

Enjoy! 


The new Central Library in downtown Calgary just recently opened and I got an opportunity to check it out in person. This architecturally stunning structure, designed by Noway architecture firm Snøhetta is a sight to behold. The interior is just as amazing as the exterior,  with lots of resources than just books. 

The new library is equipped with lots of Calgary's history as well as resources for just about anyone. It has an impressive kids section, equipped with a play area to keep any child engaged than just reading. 


A visual and audio recording studio that can be booked for a 2 hour time slot using your library card at no COST. There are also experts at hand to help you with any questions that you might have. 

There are lots of scenic and quiet reading nooks all around the library with a coffee shop in the middle and bottom floor of the library that serves up all of your coffee shop favorites + WINE which makes for the perfect place to have a meeting, wind down after a long day at the office or to meet up with a friend. 

One thing that stood out to me and that I absolutely loved was the private inter-faith room that welcomes everyone religion to come together and pray. There is so much to see and I would highly recommend you check it out at some point.

My Daughter's entire outfit is from H&M and her shoes are from Zara Kids. 


My little girl is growing up so fast and not so little anymore. She is a bundle of Joy and has so much energy. She reminds me of myself as a child. Some days, her favorite spots to hang out is on the dining table and kitchen counter and other days she can be found rummaging through all the cupboards in our home. She is funny, sweet and has a mind of her own just like her father. On another note, I love the change of seasons and all the colors of FALL. This skirt, leather jacket and vintage Chanel flap bag are all beautiful vintage pieces in my closet for FALL that I absolutely love and have been on heavy rotation. My love for Vintage has grown lately from running a consignment shop because of the quality and craftsmanship of how things were made back in the day. 

What are some of your FALL must-haves?

It's been a while since I last blogged , but I have had quite a lot on my plate. It's a tough job trying to juggle everything I have going on all at once, but I have been working really hard to manage it all the best way I can. Calgary has been having pretty temperate FALL weather the last couple of weeks and I am enjoying every minute of it. Although FALL is my favorite season, I am savoring the last few days of the nice weather before the crisp air rolls in.

Fashion is something I live and breath and it's amazing to see that my little girl is following in my foot steps. I blinked and my little girl is no longer a small baby. She is a true Gemini with a personality that lights up any room. She is constantly on the go and keeps us quite busy. I try to steer her from trouble while still keeping her looking cute and stylish. We recently collaborated with a local ethical kids clothing brand wyloandco. They make the cutest unisex kids clothing made out of organic and natural fibers. Their F A L L collection launches today and I may or may not have purchased every piece from the collection. Check out the collection below.








Although my go to style is more feminine, I sometimes enjoy a more relaxed, care free look. These jeans are my absolute favorite from H&M. They have been through a lot as you can see, ripped beyond recognition, but I LOVE em and think it adds character to them. It's been a busy summer trying to juggle running a growing business, while still being a wife and a mom but I am some how getting lots done and enjoying every moment of it. 

August is finally here and my goal is to enjoy the last few weeks of summer, take more pictures with my family and spend more time outdoors.

Thanks for stopping by

xoxo
