#12DaysofHygge – Day 6: Stove Top Almond Milk Hot Chocolate + My Favourite Vancouver Hot Chocolate Spots!

Hot chocolate or hot cocoa. However you call it, it's the perfect winter treat when you're out and about, or when you're having an evening in. It is a very hygge beverage in my humble opinion. I used to be indifferent to this marvelous hot beverage. Likely because I'd only ever had it as the …

#12DaysofHygge – Day 5: Tuesday Night Supper + Recipe for White Bean & Kale Soup with Sausage

One of things that makes me feel most hygge is a small dinner party, eating family style with favourite people. I have been eating at Karen Dar Woon's 1920's oak table since I was 16 or 17 years old. She was one of my dance moms (referred to as Ballet Mom in this post) and …

#12DaysofHygge – Day 4: Roasted Fennel & Butternut Squash Soup

There's a frosty bite in the air, which means it's officially hearty soup and stew season. With that, the next few #12DaysofHygge posts will be all about hearty food and beverage!

Tuesday Night Out with My Mum

Over the weekend, I won tickets to see the award-winning show, Jersey Boys. I can count on one hand how many times I've won a contest. On the rare winning occasions, it's always been a lovely prize, and this time was no exception. The giveaway was put on by local coffee shop chain, Blenz - …

My Favourite Vancouver (and Area) Brunch Spots

Brunch. The Goldilocks and most hygge of meals. Yes, it's Thursday morning and I'm already thinking about where to have weekend brunch. If you're like me, you might like to plan things out and want to make a reservation. That doesn't always fly as many restaurants in the city don't take resos during brunch time, …

Sunshine Coast Road Trip – Where to stay, eat and explore in Powell River

With the goal of unplugging and getting our hygge on, the Brit and I went on a Sunshine Coast road trip this past Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend. While it was odd not having a turkey dinner, we had the best time exploring the area and being with each other. I was doing an Instagram takeover …

Finding Hygge in the Chaos of Moving House (+ Creamy Tomato Basil Soup Recipe)

I can hear the rain outside and I have a cup of tea. As I type this, I'm bundled up in my sweats and a blanket. It's officially soup and stew season. My favourite. But 99% of my kitchenware - so,  everything - is packed up. Naturally. A couple weeks ago, I wrote about beginning a …
