St. Lawrence market

I hope this post wouldn't make you feel hungry. I went to St. Lawrence market during the weekend with my sister. I don't go to St. Lawrence market very often, but when I do, I LOVE it!!

We had lunch at Buster's Sea Cove. I had grilled tilapia with salad. They have the freshest seafood I've ever had!

My sister's classic haddock fish & curly fries

Before we left, I decided to take a photo of the shop for my blog. This kid made a goofy face when he saw me snapping a photo of the shop. LOL!

Have a nice day!!!

Fabulous finds { Cavotagoo in Mykonos }

If there were heaven on Earth, it would look exactly like this. Breathtaking ocean view with your own private pool? Yes, please! Cavotagoo is a five star hotel in Mykonos, Greece. I accidentally found their website while during research about our honeymoon next year.

My hubby went "WOW WOW WOW" when I showed him the website :)

The architecture and interior are just stunning. I love the contrast between the white walls and deep blue ocean. I can't take the pictures off my mind!

Visit their website for more information.

Fabulous finds { Cute Stationery }

I'm a sucker for cute stationery. Tapes, lace ribbons and rubber stamps are my favorite! I love finding stationery to make my shop packaging looks nicer (I'm glad to hear lovely comments when customers love a little extra effort I put on the packaging). Nothing elegant is one of the cutest stationery shops on etsy.

Check out their shop here.

Lovely + Inspiring { Inspiration boards and walls }

Good morning readers. How was your weekend? On Sunday, I decided to make an inspiration board to keep me inspired (I find it very important to be inspired! cliché, but true!). I found amazing inspiration boards and walls from various places, some are from designers and artists. Amazing, aren't they?

Lovely + Inspiring { Beth's lovely home cottage }

Decorating small spaces can be very challenging and fun! I personally prefer small space homes. I love how functional it is and that everything in the house is full of details. I'm amazed by Beth's lovely home cottage. She has done such a great job on her house.

Shop n' Promotions { Vintage stud earrings }

Lots of new vintage stud earrings this week. I made a visit to a vintage button store around Queen street and I couldn't resist to get my hands on these vintage goodies.

They were originally buttons from the 1960-1970's. Absolutely stunning, I decided to turn them into stud earrings.

Visit my shop for more info!

Beard Papa's Cream Puff

Finally, Beard Papa's (funny name) is officially opened in Toronto. I didn't get to try it on my last trip to Japan last year. I'm happy they have a franchise in Toronto since cream puff is one of my favorite sweets!!

New week & New month!

Happy new month! How was everyone's long weekend? I made a super easy and delicious meal for my family over the weekend. Everyone voted for baked pasta and baked sweet potato.

The best thing about this baked sweet potato was the dipping sauce. I got the dipping recipe while watching Giada de Laurentiis' cooking show. Just added some chopped garlic and squeeze a little lemon juice on the mayonnaise! I also sprinkled some curry powder and salt on the sweet potato while baking. It made a huge difference! It's one of my not-so-secret recipes :)

Got lots of orders over the last weekend. I'm off to the the post office!! Have a great day :)

Shop n' Promotions { Athens, Greek inspired feather ring }

Good evening! It's so rare that I'm blogging in the afternoon. I just finished making a new batch of my new ring, Athens, Greek inspired feather ring.

The Greek goddess bracelet that I blogged about last week sold out very quickly! I'm so glad the customers love my designs! The bracelet will be available again by next week, and I use raw brass material this time. I find raw brass more charming as they create slight patina while using. I love the vintage, distressed look!!

I hope you have a lovely weekend :)
