I’m fully in packing mode and feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment. Posting might now be sporadic. Urg. Anyways, I am looking forward to a fun weekend: music in the park, party and a fancy night out (with lawyers?). Anyways, I’ll be juggling my to-do list so we’ll see how the posting goes. Have a great one. xx

I guess I was inspired by the tacos Tanie served me last weekend but I’ve definitely got them on my mind. There is a reason for the seemingly-universal Taco Tuesday: they are quick and everyone can zhush up their own. But still they can get predictable. If you are feeling stuck for ideas, here are just a few that have caught my eye lately.


6 Veggie Taco Recipes

green tacos with lentil walnut taco meat // roasted butternut squash, quinoa and jalepeno chimichurri tacos
mushroom lentil tacos with tahini yogurt sauce // quinoa tacos with guacamole
hearty veggie tacos // spring vegetable tacos with cauliflower tortillas

Street Style Inspiration: 1 // 2 // 3


Well here’s another 90s trend that I am full heartedly in favour of: the slip dress. Truth be told during a certain era these were pretty much all I wore. But even though I have been there and worn that, this is one trend I think is forgiving enough for a second round. I always love a mix of masculine and feminine and obviously a slip is pretty perfect for that (as the above ladies demonstrate). They are also pretty great for layering (ie. fall!). So there you go: slip dress round two.

Things I Love


The easiest way to decorate by far is to make the stuff you own look good. There are many ways to do that of course but as far as books go most people line them up in a bookcase and leave things at that. But there are a millions other options. Stacks, backward spines, artful piles – so why not create something interesting while you’re at it? It makes a world of difference.
