Happy Bday Diana!

Diana celebrated her birthday this past Wednesday.
We threw a dinner for her Saturday night: spaghetti and chicken parmesan and toasted with pink sparking wine. Homemade Red Velvet Cupcakes were served for dessert. Yum!

Happy Birthday Diana!!!

Mmm... Birthday Cake

Happy Birthday René!

Chocolate fudge cake with buttercream frosting and crumbled Oreo cookie edging.

Check out this website for awesome recipes and ideas. Her butter cream frosting is so simple and so delicious. This weekend I'm whipping up the Red Velvet Cake for my other brothers birthday. Mmm!

So it's not fashion related but who doesn't love cupcakes!? I made these bad boys this past weekend for my family - fluffy chocolate cakes with butter cream icing and colorful sprinkles (proudly decorated by my man). Yum yum!

Elle Show 2009

YSL beauty booth, noon fashion show, Adrienne working the Balmshell booth

Diana and I were at the Carlu today for the Elle Show 2009. There were lots of beauty and jewelry booths around. The only fashion were the runway shows at noon and then again at 3:30 pm. (They were presenting the 3 finalists from Project Runway Canada.) We kept busy chatting with the girls at the Balmshell booth where we both picked up some of their moisturizing lip gloss. I also bought a pretty bracelet at the Echo Jibe booth (first pic on last row).

We grabbed our goodie bags and lunch boxes and headed to a coffee shop across the street to eat and drink tea. Mmm...
Those who live here know that it was a beautiful warm, sunny day in Toronto. After lunch we ditched the remainder of the Elle Show and walked around the city for some window shopping.

Purchases: Echo Jibe bracelet (shown far left), Diana's Marc Jacobs Body Splash in Rain, Nathalie's new Joie top worn with Current/ Elliot jeans and Steve Madden sandals

We stopped by Sherway Gardens on the way home. Diana dragged me to Holts where she bought the Marc Jacobs Body Splash in Rain. (This is kinda cool - the 10 oz. bottle came with an empty purse sized bottle and a funnel to filler up!) I got a pretty Joie blouse that I've had my eye on all season. It finally went on sale - how could I resist? We combined our receipts and got the $25 gift card from the promo Holts is having this weekend.

All in all, great afternoon.

Happy Easter


To make your own birds nest cupcakes just bake regular cupcakes, ice them, dunk them into shredded coconut and decorate with chocolate eggs. Do this on a freshly iced cupcake and the coconut and eggs will adhere nicely.

Happy Easter from Nathalie and Diana.

Prints and Silks

prints and silks

Left to right: Twenty8Twelve silk blouse, Jacob sundress, Marc by Marc Jacobs silk apron dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs silk Ace of Spades dress, Wilfred silk dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs silk blouse, Lux silk dress.

I adore feminine printed fabrics, in particular, silk. I'm looking forward to a warmer spring so I could pair my favorite prints with cute sandals. As much as I love them, I'm ready to retire black opaque tights until next fall.
