Be a pineapple- stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside! I love pineapple quotes and I love eating pineapple but I think wearing adorable pineapple tops is my absolute favourite! I spotted this shirt at The Bay a month ago and immediately fell in love with the print and shoulder bow! While I normally opt for tighter fitting tops (it’s all about accentuating the waist, right girls?!?!) sometimes you have to make exceptions when items are real ‘wows!’
Growing up Blum’s Coffee Toffee was my favourite dessert! The recipe belongs to my Grandma Merritt who lives in Vancouver. As a kid, every time we travelled to BC to visit, my grandma would ask us to send out a list of foods that we wanted her to have ready for us when we arrived. Blum’s Coffee Toffee was always #1 on my list. I really enjoyed making this dessert last week and reflecting on all of the fond memories I have of eating this dessert with my grandma!
Part whip cream icing, part chocolate coconut crust, part pudding-ish middle… it’s hard to describe exactly what Blum’s Coffee Toffee is! The unconventional combination of ingredients and textures makes it hard to categorize- it’s not a cake, it’s not a flan, it’s not an ice-cream or a custard…but it’s definitely delicious! Give it a try- I’m sure Blum’s Coffee Toffee will quickly become one of your favourite summer desserts, too!

I like to store this dessert in the freezer, because that's how my grandma always did it! I'm not sure why, but it tastes SO good semi-frozen! The original recipe says "store in the fridge"...so I guess either one works!
Make sure you invite friends over to help you eat you new favourite summer dessert! ;)
Gingham has been all over the place this year and I couldn't be more thrilled! It's a print that strikes the perfect balance between fun and classy, so needless to say, I'm obsessed. When I stumbled upon these shorts in Top Shop I loved the feminine frill and the high waist. I wasn't sure if I'd love how they looked on me, but when I tried them on I was pleasantly surprised! Instead of adding bulk to the thigh area (which I was afraid of), these shorts did the opposite! WOOHOO!
