Overall Dress: Thu- Thu, Shoes: Forever 21, Long Sleeve top: Joe Fresh

Pretty much obsessed with these leather overalls that were designed by my good friend Thuy! She is so insanely talented and I couldnt be more estatic when she arrived from London with a suitcase filled with all of her new stuff. Hosting her was ridiculousy fun but getting to wear all of her designs...just an amazing bonus. I'm sure you will see some more of her stuff on her in the next little bit

You will also see a new blog look on here! My new site will be launched on Monday and I couldn't be more excited. I always like making changes in the fall so it's a perfect time for this to happen. Can't wait to share!


Last Halloween was not only my favourite Halloween of all time but it was also my favourite NIGHT of all time. I had SOOO much fun that everytime I think about the night I could honestly cry. 

My friend and I decided to be the "Sun and the Moon" and definitely got into character. We began our night in the moonlight at the Hollwood Forever Cemerty ( which as creepy as it sounds is one of my favourite places in LA) and ended our night as the sun was coming up. 

The bash was hosted by Adam Levine and included open bar, Patron Toss, In N Out Food trucks (you know where I was at 3AM), Tom Yorke DJ'ing, bumper cars, photobooths and an obscene amount of celebrities to lurk on. 

We made our costumes a few weeks before and got all out of items from Santee Alley ( a cheap market in downtown LA!). I made my headband out of styrofoam pieces, painted them gold and glue-gunned it to my metal band.

I am very excited about Halloween again this year, even though I know it won't compare! Ugh.

You can check out some other Halloween costumes from previous years HERE and HERE

Northern Paradise

For starters, I just want to apologize for the lack of posts over the last two weeks. I am working on switching over to Wordpress and giving my blog a face lift while doing so and there has been a bit of a delay on the switch over! 

Secondly, I had a friend visiting from Europe for two weeks so have been busy hosting her and showing her around Toronto and the vicinity! One of her main requests during her visit was being able to go to Muskoka. At one point during dinner a few days before taking off I caught her on her Instagram smiling and I asked her what she was doing. "Oh nothing " she replied with a smirk. After taking a further look at her phone, I saw that she had hashtagged "Muskoka" and was looking at all the photos that had come up. Excited was an understatement!   Although we got rained on, it was still a fun two days taking in the numerous fall colours, eating a delicious meal, playing old school board games, sipping on wine (a lot of it), taking the canoe out when the rain subsided and feeling peaceful after a few busy days in the city. 

Made in America: THE VIDEO

I posted about my time in Philadelphia at the Made in America Music Festival HERE and HERE but I also put together a little video that sums up our trip pretty nicely! Since I watched the Miley Movement last night, I thought it was a good time to post this!

I really want to get a good video camera where I can video tape some of my experiences instead of always using my iPhone. To my family reading this, my birthday is in two months!

No Dough Pizza

Pizza, to me, is essential in life/considered a food group. In the summertime, my family and I (fine- just my mom) make homemade pizzas every Sunday and it is my favorite part of the summer. Paired with a glass of Merlot or Malbec, that my friends, is my definition of bliss. 

As much as I would love to eat Pizza everyday, I am not one of those girls that can eat whatever she wants and not feel/see the consequences. When I saw all the hype surrounding Cauliflower Pizza, I decided I HAD to try it out!

-2 heads of cauliflower
-A few dahes of Oregano
-1 few dashes of Parmesan Cheese
-Slices of Cheese ( I used mozzarella) 
-1 cup of Tomato Sauce ( I made fresh tomato sauce!)
-2 Eggs
-1 tablespoon of Quinoa Flour
-2 Tomatoes
-Cut up Chorizio
-1/4 of an Onion
-1 tablespoon of Garlic Powder
-A few dashes of Salt & Pepper
-1 tablespoon of Chia Seeds

*You can use any toppings you want, I just decided on Tomatoes, Cheese and Chorizio


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Chop up your cauliflower into small pieces and place it in a blender! I used a magic bullet so had to do little bits at a time. I also added a few drops of water to get things moving. Blend until it is pureed. 
3. Place the pureed cauliflower mixture onto a plate and place paper towels over it to get rid of the excess water from the cauliflower. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART! ( I went through a lot of paper towels!)
4. Let the cauliflower sit with the paper towels over it for about a half hour
5. Discard any left over cauliflower liquid by turning the plate upside down with the paper towel on top of it
6. Move the purree mix into a large bowl, add the eggs, a few dashes of oregano, salt and pepper, garlic powder, some Parmesan  the Quinoa flour and the Chia seeds ( the Chia seeds are necessary but I found that they helped to thicken the dough) 
7. Mix together until it is blended in
8. Spread the “dough” into either 1 large pizza shape or 2 small pizza rounds on a lightly greased (coconut oil) pizza pan 
9. Do not spread the  “dough” too thin as the moisture will cause it the crack. 
10. Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Once you see the top turning a bit of a golden colour, you can take it out!
11. Remove the crust from the oven and let it sit for about 10 minutes. 
12. Add all of your favourite toppings! In my case, tomatoes, mozzarella, chorizio!
13. Place the pizzas back into the oven for another 15 minutes! During the last few minutes, change your oven settings to BROIL to make sure the top is thoroughly cooked. 
14. EAT UP!!!!

LA to San Fran

If I had to pick my favourite drive in the entire world, it would be this one. I didn't think it was possible to fall more in love with California but then we took a road trip from Los Angeles all the way to San Francisco stopping in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Big Sur, Carmel, and Santa Cruz. I fell head over heels in love and if anyone is dabbling with the idea of doing this drive- I could literally not recommend it enough!

Big Sur alone is a magical place that fills you with serenity and peace. It's no surprise that many artists escape here to get their creative juices flowing! Other favourite stops along the way included The Madonna Inn (weirdest and best place ever- I felt like I was trapped in a 60's horror film but in a good way), Julie Prrfeer bridge and the Santa Cruz boardwalk.
