Lip Balm & Summer Vibes

Epic Blend - Lip Balms - Vegan Peach - Green Apple More Moisture - Hemp Coconut - Okanagan Made

The sun has been out these last few days and we are absolutely loving it! It’s been a long winter here in the Okanagan and the pets were starting to go stir crazy! Thankfully the clouds have dispersed, the skies are blue, the birds are chirping, and we’re getting beautiful sun streams of warmth throughout the house (which by the way, both pets fight over every.single.day…) I am seriously feeling the spring and summer vibes and cannot wait for the days of flip flops, sunglasses, and beach trips!! Neither can the pup, he’s such a beach bum! I can’t wait…

Lavender & Sweet Orange

Epic Blend - Lip Balms - Salt Soak

I recently got some of this salt soak from Epic Blend and was waiting for the perfect opportunity to try it out. After a week of more snow and chilly temperatures a bubble bath with some Lavender & Sweet Orange Relax Salt Soak was calling my name. And it was absolutely perfect. Honestly, I’m more of a shower girl and find I just don’t seem to get around to drawing myself a bath that often. But after a long winter and a couple stressful weeks a bath and a glass of wine was exactly what I needed. Cheers to self…

Homemade BBQ Pizza

Homemade BBQ Chicken Pizza - Lake Country - Okanagan - British Columbia - Pizza Dough

Friday night is all about pizza at our house. It’s something we look forward to at the end of a long week, and has turned into a bit of a tradition over the last few years. It started because my hubby loves pizza, especially when paired with his favourite drink – Okanagan Spirits Rye. If you haven’t tried it he highly recommends checking them out. But… I’m a picky pizza eater… it just wasn’t my favourite (i know… gasp!!) Whenever we ordered pizza I would stick with basic pepperoni (and it had to be the small pepperonis!!). Anytime I would…

I met Maggie a few months ago over coffee and we’ve been working together since. She is the sweetest soul, wife, mother of two beautiful girls, boss babe, and is always such a pleasure to be around. I am absolutely honoured to capture her stunning jewellery pieces and am so grateful for her support and trust in my abilities. We got together to photograph some more of her jewellery and I actually had to buy one of them before someone else did! Like, the moment I saw it I knew it was mine. Haha! Can you guess which one I…

Sweetheart Smoothie
with Farmer’s Fruit & Produce

Sweetheart Smoothie - Okanagan Lake Country

This sweetheart smoothie is a great way to start Valentine’s Day! Especially since it happens to fall on a weekday this year. It’s light and refreshing, and has a nice pink colour from all the strawberries. Top it with some Coconut Whip and you get a pretty sweet treat. I picked up all my ingredients from one of my favourite stores in Lake Country, Farmer’s Fruit and Produce (@farmersfruitandproduce). They’re usually my first stop on grocery run days because they have just about everything I need. They bring in organic/non-gmo chicken as well as other high-quality meats. They sell dairy…
