A Perfect Find

While searching for what to wear to my birthday dinner party, I found a piece that I will hold onto and cherish forever. At shopbop in the sale section, let me clarify .... the 70 percent off section, I found a Haute Hippie top that is out of this world. Originally $495 I purchased it for only $148.50 less an extra 15 percent because of a family and friend promo. It was like it was meant to be, there was only one left and it was in my size. It was a risk to order online without ever trying it on but when you know, you know. Even if I never ended up wearing this piece I was ecstatic just to have it in my collection.

Trend: Straw Bags

A sign that Summer is close...finally! Straw bags are in right now with Spring here and Summer around the corner. A straw bag is perfect with its roomy space inside for a picnic in the park, the beach, the pool, an overnighter, or even an everyday bag. Whether designer or not you can't go wrong with the natural look. The sight of a straw bag makes me excited for the fun times ahead beaches, pool parties and backyard summer BBQ's. A straw bag can be brought everywhere and while looking super cute you will also be prepared for endless amounts of fun.

Its the perfect jacket for summer dresses and skirts and I love the short cropped fit. The gold watch is my prize possession, a statement piece bought from the Michael Kors store in Soho, NYC. If you haven't tried Moroccan Oil yet, you must, no questions. You will know what I mean after your first time. Do it!

Hemp Heart Power Smoothie

My boyfriend and I have finally mastered our perfect power smoothie. It has taken us a few years to finally create something that we absolutely love, tastes good and is super healthy. A close friend recommended Hemp Hearts to us and this became the most important ingredient. Not only does it taste good but it supplies you with tons of energy, nutrients and protein. Whether added to a smoothie or sprinkled on a salad or sandwich the delicious raw nutty taste will not disappoint;) The other thing I love about these Hemp Hearts from North Coast Naturals is they are Canadian made.

You can personalize the smoothie to anyway you like, here is what we like to include...

Ingredients for 1 Hemp Heart Power Smoothie:

1.5 scoops of Raw Hemp Seed Hearts
1.0 scoop of Greens + Multi by Genuine Health
0.5 scoop of PhytoBerry Powder by Progressive
Fat Free Organic Vanilla Yogurt
Dabble of Juice
Handful of Frozen Berries
1/2 Banana
1 Tsp Honey
Touch of Cinnamon

Here it Goes...

Victoria Secret $9

So I have done it ... created a blog! I have been feeling a little hesitant about the whole idea but decided right now to just ago ahead and do it. I new that I wanted to blog about any and everything to do with fashion, cooking, baking, home decor and travel, but I had no idea of what I wanted to call it. When I was thinking of names to call my blog....words like sweets, satin, lace, lemon drops, velvet, and vanilla kept coming into my head. It was not until I sprayed my favourite scent of body mist that night that it came to me...Vanilla & Lace, the name on the bottle of the most amazing smell ever.
