Jumpin’ jalapenos, it is snowing like CRAY outside (or at least in my area)! I hope you are safe and warm and snuggly as you read this post, friend! #frozenshouldjustbeamovienotanenvironment
Here’s a little peek into what I’ve been up to lately, in no particular order! Most of the photos are from my Instagram, but some either never made it onto Insta or will go up at a future date! Leeee’gooo! 🙂
*photo heavy post warning*
Love this quote! It’s from Inception, one of my all-time favourite movies (HELLO, Leo DiCaprio!), and I think it captures exactly what I’ve been feeling lately!
One of my friend’s from school, whom I love (Hey Jackie! :)), recommended this drink from the “secret menu” at Starbucks to me a few weeks back…and I can safely say that it’s one of the best drinks I’ve ever had! SO AMAZINGLY GOOD. It’s the “Warm Sugar Cookie,” if you were wondering, and you start off with White Chocolate Mocha as your base and add 1.5-3 pumps of both hazelnut and vanilla syrups and get them to top it off with a little Cinnamon Dolce sugar. Oh my, so tasty. It is quite sweet (I only had 1.5 pumps of each in this first try and it was still a bit too much for me), but you can cut it down to suit your taste. Totally going back for another sometime soon! 🙂
If you know me at all, you know that I love coffee, any shape, any form, any kind. What’s better than pretty nails to hold your pretty cup with your pretty (tasty) coffee in it!? #nothing
Spring is in the air at Holt Renfrew! 🙂 Dreaming of warmer weather and pretty albeit way too damn expensive and probably never going to happen but hey, Siobhan, dream big — Manolo Blahniks! ♥
I cooked up some completely homemade ravioli made from whole wheat flour and stuffed it with a butternut squash and sweet onion filling and my oh my, was it delish! Let me know if you want to see a recipe or walk-through!
As a gal who loves looking at and reviewing any kind of campaign or marketing strategy, but especially those of the beauty realm, I’m always in my element when at Sephora! I spotted this lovely product display when I was last in good ol’ S-town last week and I just love it! Natalie Portman looks stunning, and I need me some hot pink pumps now to spice up my casual outfits!
Though I would never see the movie, I’m always in awe when I look at the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey nail polish collection in person; my Ana, what gorgeous nail shades you have! 😉
Speaking of nail polish, WHY ESSIE WHY!? Your new Cashmere Matte collection looks fabulous! Such pretty pinks and nudes! I might just have to put my finger on one or two (haha, get it, FINGER…like fingerNAIL!? No, nobody? Awks….)!
I saw this lovely table arrangement at Bowring when I was in there with my mom the other day and holy loveliness, it is GORGEOUS! This will be the look and vibe that I strive for when I have my own place and/or do my own entertaining! #perfection
Favourite mug, for so many reasons. The proud, smart and driven woman in me cringes at that admission, but the lazy part says OH YEAH, baby, only 2 days away! *cheeky grin*
Ingredients for a perfect Sunday: tea, pretty china, macarons and a Downton Abbey marathon. Score.
It’s March, which means a new page in my Lily Pulitzer agenda! Love this quote for the month, and it is exactly what I plan to do!
Winter means cold weather and lots and lots and lots of layers, but it also means killer sunrises that the inner photography geek inside of me relishes and savours.
Brunch with my favourite bunch, the parental units. Always a blast 🙂
No, that’s not a loofah, it’s a Romanesco Broccoli Cabbage that I saw this weekend while in a local health food store with my parents. OMG, so weird!
Last week, it got so seriously cold, that we not only broke records here in Canada, but the wingmirrors on my dad’s car literally FROZE after he got a car wash! :O Now that’s cold.
Finally, I’m going to show you two photos from when I was fortunate enough to accompany my family to Toronto for a weekend of fun and splendour, and CHECK OUT THIS AWESOME VIEW!
Total magic at sunset on Lake Ontario. And if you have incredible eyesight, I will answer your burning question: YES, that is a HUMAN who was SKATING with his or her friends or family on the lake in the mid-left and bottom right sections of the above photo! UTTER. MADNESS.
I have a thing for night landscapes, so obviously the above photo had to happen. Toronto sure is a beautiful city, especially at night! 🙂
Oh, and before you ask, don’t you worry, a whole post on what to pack for an overnight adventure and some photos of this incredible experience will be up shortly on the bylaws! YAY! 🙂
So, what have you been up to lately!? Let me know down below, I’d love to hear (or you can tag me on Instagram @Siobhan0x so I can see for myself)!! 🙂
Please note, there will be no post for tomorrow as I have a blood exchange scheduled for the afternoon and won’t have time to write the post I planned to have up, but fear not! I’ll be back on Thursday with a highly requested post! 🙂 #getexcited
Stay safe and lovely until Thursday.
Oodles and oodles of love,
