The Perfect Outfit for a fall morning!
While doing my morning blog scanning this morning, I came across something that caught my attention and now I want it! This cozy, cute nightshirt by Kayce Hughes that seems like the perfect item for fall to curl up with, drink tea, read a book...I'm convinced this needs to be added to my very sad pj collection.

Weekend Re-Cap: Pasta & Ballet

Another weekend flew by. Dinner with friends, ballet class for my daughter, some picture hanging (we moved to a new home recently) a trip to the park and family pizza and movie night on Sunday. Here are a couple highlights of what I'm lovin this weekend to share: a simple pasta recipe that's always a success and a picture of my daughters first ballet class. It was momentous and hilarious! Enjoy...

Janice's Tomato Sauce (trust me, try it)
- Saute 1/2 onion in olive oil
- Add a big tin of whole tomatoes and break them up
- 6 tablespoons of tomato paste
- Salt and Pepper (more the better)
- 2 tsp dried basil
- 2 tsp sugar

Simmer for 40 minutes. You can add meat to this dish as well or a side of halibut or crab cakes is perfection!

And a picture to melt me heart...

A ballerina in the making!

Don't discount Roses!

White roses are my colour of choice right now!

A single rose displayed in small vases is a perfect little touch!
Discounted the rose? I used to. I thought this was only a flower that a guy paid 3 times the price he should on valentines day. Now, I see this as the must have flower in your home. Cut them short, put them in small vases, display them on your kitchen table, powder room and don't forget your bedside table - what a nice way to start the day. Give roses a second'll be love it.

The Gap is Back - Lovin That!

About 5 years ago, I purchased a lot of my pants and basics from The Gap. Over the past couple years, I've gone there to purchase items for my 2 year old daughter but left empty handed for myself. That's all changed. The Gap is Back! Loving the basics and my new fav Lovin That is the Real Skinny Black Pant. It's my new "go to."
