Adult colouring books are all the rage these days. I’ve been super intrigued by the trend of colouring in the lines again as they bring back nostalgia of my childhood days. I loved to color as a kid with my rainbow array of pencil crayons on hand. My niece still uses them to this day! But what does it mean to follow in the same activities as a 5-year-old?

Build your own beautiful gallery wall.

So I’ve talked all about the reasons why you need to have a gallery wall in your home. You’ve thought about it a little bit, done some research, looked at the blank space on your wall and have finally committed. You’re hanging own up your own beautiful photo gallery wall.

MBF’s “I Wanna Make It With You”

Nutella Brownies

I’ve beeen on a bit of a role with my foodie posts lately, so I figured I’d keep up the trend with a look at another recipe. This time around, I focussed on a delectable dessert – the brownie. I was inspired to make this sweet treat when the fabulous Dinner with Julie shared her super simple three ingredient recipe for Nutella brownies.

Now, I’m not sure what it is about Nutella that makes people lose their minds. It even happens to me and I don’t understand it. There’s just something about this hazelnut spread that makes you both happy View this Post

Broccoli cheddar quinoa bites

I’m writing this blog as I’m watching the season premiere of Masterchef Canada on my PVR. The show reminds me of the great home cooking I have been doing lately (if not exactly Masterchef worthy lol) and I’m excited to share with y’all. One of my life resolutions this year is to try out new foods and recipes. I’ve been finding my cooking inspiration View this Post

Calgary Brewery Tours brings cheers for beer lovers

Craft Calgary Brewery Tours

Calgary’s love affair with suds and brews can be seen far and wide with the endless number of beer halls, restaurants and local breweries that have been bubbling up in our city’s beer scene. Drinking local has never been so much fun – that is until you take part in one of the Calgary Brewery Tours.

This new local and tourist attraction is exactly as it sounds – a tour of Calgary breweries with many sips to be had with other like-minded fellows. I took part in a condensed preview version of the tour to see exactly what it’s View this Post
