SPACES: Love is in the details

Well it is February so I couldn’t pass up the one time of the year where it’s totally acceptable (and expected) for me to chat about love, hearts and anything pink. As far as the love dept. that’s pretty much non-existent in my personal life…..but that’s why we have home heart decor! Or maybe you’re head […] Read more…

DIY Modern Wreath Wall Hanging

A little while ago I was asked by the fine people at Makeful TV if I would be interested in hosting a holiday-ish DIY workshop for their first ever blogger event. Gimme a craft and an audience and I’m ready to go. They were open to me choosing my own project, which is awesome, and I […] Read more…

Almond Snowball Christmas Cookie Recipe by The Sweet Escape

Almond Snowball Cookies Recipe

Don’t let their simplicity fool you. These little snowball cookies are jam packed with nutty almond flavour. Like throwing a snowball, you can’t stop at one. It’s impossible, I’ve conducted an extensive study. My Italian family makes very similar cookies, in fact you may see/hear them referred to as Italian cookies or Russian tea cakes. Those people don’t […] Read more…

Dell Inspiron 2-in-1 laptop review by The Sweet Escape

Pretty Tech: Why I dig my new Dell Inspiron

If tech nerds were like chicken wings I would say that I’m mild-medium heat. The nature of my job kinda forces me to know about what’s going on but I wouldn’t say that I’m on the cutting edge or know what the upcoming latest and greatest piece of tech is. I do appreciate the conveniences […] Read more…

Merry & Bright with Hot Pop Factory

Today I have something for both the craft and tech nerds out there, myself included.

When the cool people at Hot Pop Factory reached out […] Read more…

Drink up: Holiday Sangria Recipe

So I admit it, my favourite part of the holidays is the shindigs – the good, the bad, the ugly, I love them all. It’s the only time of the year where you can actually wear those outfits you bought “for that time when I need to get dressed up” and over indulge on food […] Read more…

Miss Fresh Meals delivered to my Door

I’ve been hearing about home delivery meal services for awhile and I’ve wanted to try one but part of me felt guilty and lazy for not doing it myself (single, no kids, what’s my excuse?!) and the other part of me felt cheap I guess. I’ve discovered they’re all totally lame reasons.  When Miss Fresh reached out […] Read more…

SPACES: My Loft Living Room Makeover

I hate to admit it but I realized that I’m one of those people that will get 80% of a project done super fast then drag my feet getting the last 20% done. It happened with my kitchen makeover and now with my loft living room update. The good news is that it’s done and […] Read more…

GOOD EATS: Honey Glazed Apricot Plum Galette

I love to bake and cook all year round but there’s something about the fall weather change that really brings it out in me. Plums are one of those fruit that I admittedly don’t love eating on their own but they are so perfect for baking. I think it’s the balance of their tartiness with […] Read more…
