If you follow along on Instagram, last week you may have seen that VictoriaGaby and I had a little pre-Christmas baking session. We made Gaby’s Grandmother’s Spitzbuben Cookie recipe, also known as Swiss Jam Sandwich Cookies. Let me tell you, these are D-E-L-I-S-H!


You can find the recipe on Gaby’s blog. We used Christmas cookie cutters to make these more festive, but Gaby’s recipe includes another option of an icing sugar topping. Both are super yummy!

I’m so excited to share the 2nd of 3 posts wearing my favorite dresses from the Jill Jill Stuart Fall and Holiday Collections. It was really hard to choose my top pieces from the collections, but as soon as I saw this stunning hand-cut floral strapless dress, there was no question in my mind that this was at the top of my list. It fits like a glove, and the color is just so pretty. I wore this to a holiday party last week, and I couldn’t stop looking down at all of the gorgeous little flowers.


Since we had so much snow last week, Gaby and I slipped into our favorite cupcake spot to take these photographs. If you are ever in Toronto, Desmond & Beatrice is a must visit for the best cupcakes you’ll ever eat.

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I took these photos 2 weeks ago when I was visiting my hometown for our annual family reunion. My Mother has a very large extended family, and each year, over 60 of us gather together for a delicious Christmas lunch. I usually dress a little more festively, but I was antsy to wear this fabulous faux leather skirt, so classic black and white it was.
