These Beau Coops for karen walker shoes are killing it for fall. Even better, they're available at Chasse Gardee in Toronto. Speaking of, a couple of weeks ago I wrote about how much I love Chasse Gardee and a few other Toronto spots for Vitamin Daily - check it out here.


More snacks in the backyard while the evenings are still nice. I could obviously eat cheese platters outside for every meal and be the happiest.

Some new beauty products atop an old (and favourite) Acne Paper cover:
Red wine lips and stormy nails to bring me into fall.

I also love, love, love this picture from Into The Gloss of Jacquelyn Jablonski wearing Givenchy's Fall 2011 makeup collection. I don't ever wear gloss, but I'm definitely making an exception for this one. See ya next summer Schiap.


Fact: dinner's more fun when it's an outdoor salad party.
Caprese Salad with the freshest tomatoes
cheese + olives on our new slate plates

And speaking of salads....this post is CRAZY! Perhaps I'll give the Rubix cube fruit salad a try next time.


On Saturday, Carlos and I met my parents in Niagra-on-the-Lake to celebrate their anniversary. Such a nice day it was: peaches, beautiful weather, delicious meals, and wiiiiine.

Enjoying my time at Peller Estates, post wine-tasting.

Marzipan break. I never eat marzipan, but it's kind of the best. As a child I used to love to get it when we came to Niagra-on-the-Lake.
At the end of the day, my parents treated us to tons of produce. Carlos and I were armed with bags of peaches, plums, tomatoes, green beans, and nectarines on our way back home. I want to make peach cake! Recipes?

I brought two of these fruit bags back from Merci (one for me, one for Mom).

And here's Carlos looking fresh, as always.


Saw this yesterday and I can't stop thinking about it. Thoughtful and beautiful - go see now.
