Perfect Easter Dresses – 2019

Breaking down my picks for Easter dresses…

Easter Dresses

Ok guys Easter is coming up so I’m breaking down my favourite dresses for Easter. Whether you’re heading to church, brunch, dinner or chasing after kiddos at an easter egg hunt there’s something here for everyone.

Classic Green Floral Wrap – Green is one of my favourite colours to wear in spring and summer. It’s so bright and beautiful. This wrap dress is a classic look for Easter. And it’s just a great dress to have in your closet. Perfect for wedding season!

Feminine Pink Ruffles – This dress is seriously sweet and perfect if you live somewhere warm since it’s short sleeved. This dress is so sweet, trimmed with ruffles and pretty pink florals.

Sleeveless Green Wrap – Again a perfect dress if you live somewhere warm! This dress is stunning and perfect for brunch. I seriously want to drink a mimosa and sit in the sun on this press. Plus that wrap style hides the food baby after eating a few too many waffles!

Blue Wrap Dress – Seriously perfect Easter dress. For me this it the perfect church dress. It’s sweet and spring appropriate. I especially love the pleating in the dress. It adds such a great visual interest. It’s also perfect for a Pacific North West Easter since chances are there could be a bit of rain!

Classic Lace Dress – I love Eliza J lace dresses. I wore one to my bridal shower last year and can’t wait to add more to my collection. They are such high quality beautiful dresses. I think this pink one would be great for Easter brunch or dinner.

Sweet Sundress – Ok this dress screams Easter egg hunt to me! I think this dress would be especially perfect if you’re chasing after littles and helping the pick up eggs. It’s a great length for bending over and the high neck prevents any possible wardrobe malfunctions!

Ok guys now get shopping!

Fresh Easter Decor – 2019

Today I’m sharing a few of my favourite finds for Easter. I am slowly creating holiday decor collections for our home. I like curating my decor over time. I’ve already started buying a few new pieces for Easter. So today I thought I would share some of the items I’m loving for Easter!

Floral Dinnerware – I love my classic white dinnerware, but I like adding fun plates and glasses to refresh my table for every season. I’m in love with these floral plates! I think buying half a set and placing them at every other place setting would be the perfect way to infuse fresh florals into your table scape without breaking the bank!

Egg Decor – Ok I loved decorating eggs when I was a kid but that’s not really my cup of tea anymore. So I’ve started collecting glass eggs to display around the house. I love these pastel ones!

Linen Napkins – I love a cloth napkin! I know it’s a little extra but I love them. Both of my Grandma’s used them and I loved rolling them and setting the table. I got linen napkins as a wedding gift and we use them all the time. I think these pretty pink ones would be perfect for Easter!

Pastel Candles – When I came across these tiny tapers I fell in love. I’m not much of a taper fan, but these may have just converted me. Seriously cute and along a long table. Perfection!

Candy Dish – I love a festive candy dish! And without one what would you put the mini eggs in? That’s a serious question. I think this is super cute and functional!

Place Card Holders – Ok I’m a fan of a seating plan. I’m kind of a master of them! Not to brag but many people told me how good I planned the seating for our wedding. I think it’s fun to put out name cards for holidays and events. Simple printable cards are what I use, so a fun festive holder is a must! Bunny ears! How adorable! I also love the mix of natural wood with the pastels whites and florals.

Ok guys, there you have it, my picks for Easter decor!

The sun is shining, the temps are rising and I think my parka is officially away for another season. I’m very excited to brighten and lighten our home and my wardrobe! So today I’m sharing a few of my favourite things for spring!

Dresses – Seriously excited to ditch the heavy pants and knit dresses. I’m excited to break out all my lightweight dresses and even add a few to my collecting. Like this one from Gal Meets Glam!

Wreaths – Wreaths are not just for Christmas! I love boxwoods for spring and summer. They really brighten the front door! This one is a great price!

Dining – I love to break out some fun dinnerware for spring, it’s so fun and perfect for the patio! I think it’s the only way I can get pink in my house without my husband making a stink! I love this ceramic little market collection!

Pillows – I love changing my pillows for Spring! This one is perfect for spring without being too bright and flashy!

Baskets – Spring means spring cleaning and spring organizing! So give me all the baskets to hide my crap! This one is the exact size I’ve been hunting for and it goes perfect with my house!

Ok guys! There you have it my must haves for Spring!

Ok guys this is my very last gift guide before Christmas! I’m a little sad since I’ve enjoyed making these for you. I hope your Christmas shopping is going well and you’re not too stressed! If you need more gift ideas and missed the other two gift guides check them out here, and here. Now let’s get into it!

one / two / three / four / five / six

Just like the last gift guide everything on this list is either something I own and love or something on my own wish list!

  1. This book teaches you a super scientific method of cooking, and although I believe it having fun and not stressing and throwing out the rulebook in the kitchen. I think a book like this will help anyone tighten up their skills take a typical home cook to the next level. Also the friend chicken sandwich in this book is heaven, it worth it for the sandwich. The Food Lab.
  2. I love Joanna Gaines, her style, her personality and her family. And I love that she is a home cook sharing her favourite recipes. I think it’s really fun to see a home cook come out with a book like this.  Magnolia Table.
  3. No cookbook gift guide is complete without including Chrissy Teigan’s second book. Not only is she a girl after my own heart with her love of cheese. But it’s the perfect book for pop culture lovers. Even someone who doesn’t cook would enjoy this book.  Cravings Hungry for More.
  4. This is a super fun cocktail book. All the drinks have fun literary based names! Plus who doesn’t want to try a new cocktail. This is a perfect hostess gift too! Tequila Mockingbird.
  5. I got this book at my bridal shower along with my cast iron pan, and thank goodness! I was terrified to start using the pan until I read this book and understood how to treat my new baby. And on top of all the cast iron care tips I love the recipes. It really expands your mind as to what you can do with cast iron. Cook In Cast Iron.
  6. No list is complete with out the queen Ina! She is impeccable in every way. I watched her cook like a pro series and loved that she shows you how to use your skills as a home cook to wow guests. It helps you thin outside the box when entertaining. And I just love Ina, Jeffery and her roast Chicken! Cook Like a Pro.

Ok that’s it! My last gift guide for 2018! Now go finish your shopping!

Ok guys we are talking gifts for the baker today. This is the second post in my gift guide series for 2018. I can’t believe we’re getting so close to Christmas, but there is still time to finish your shopping! So let’s jump right into the gift guide!

one / two / three / four / five / six

Just like the last gift guide everything on this list is either something I own and love or something on my own wish list!

  1. I love cake stands! I think they are so fun and this one with the wood and glass dome would be perfect to leave out on your counter full of muffins or treats! Libby Wood Cake Stand
  2. A Kitchen Aid mixer is a must for any baker! I think this is the perfect model for a home baker. For our first Christmas my husband (then boyfriend) bought me a Kitchen Aid Classic mixer. I cried on Christmas morning I was so happy! I had wanted one since I was a kid watching Martha and Ina! (totally normal right?) Since mines a Classic model I have taken to upgrading its attachments over the years, but  if I ever have to replace it I will buy this one! KitchenAid Artisan Series
  3. I love decorative bakeware and Emile Henry makes beautiful pieces. I can’t wait to add to my collection. Fluted Loaf Pan
  4. These cookie sheets are perfection. My Grandma always used AirBake cookie sheets, so I use AirBake cookie sheets. I swear it’s impossible to burn your cookies. AirBake Cookie Sheets
  5. So this one has been on my list for a while… since I saw Martha use them when I was 8. Why didn’t I watch cartoons? Anyway, I would like to be a bit more green in 2019 and one easy way to do that is cut down on the amount of parchment paper I use. So I will be switching to Silpat, and fulfilling my life long dream to be more like Martha. Silpat Baking Mat
  6. I got this french rolling pin as a bridal shower gift and I love it! It’s so easy to use, it’s light, super affordable and it’s chic. I think Ina would approve (ok this is turning into TV chefs I admire). French Rolling Pin
  7. This USA sheet pan with cooling rack is probably one of my most used kitchen items. I use it for many recipes from making bacon in the oven to crisping up leftover pizza and it’s a must in my BBQ-less BBQ Chicken! I am slowly but surely getting all my friends and family to buy this awesome sheet pan combo! It’s easily my most used wedding gift! USA Sheet Pan and Rack
