Friday Finds 17 // Candy Corn Blondies, Crochet 101 and Fashion Week Braids123

Hey friends! Just stopping in to say a hello, because this morning I’m off to Toronto! I’m attending Buffer Festival with a few work friends. What is Buffer Festival, you ask? It’s a three-day festival, celebrating Youtube content and it’s creators through theatrical screenings, video premiers, a red carpet, followed by a gala with the Youtubers and special meet-ups. Some familiar attendees will be Shaycarl, Jacksgap, Rhett & Link, CTFxC. Anyone heard of them, or am I just super nerdy? Anyways, I’m very excited for the weekend to start (despite a 5 hour bus ride – boo), and to meet some of the people I have been watching online for years. It’s weird because it feels like we’re all friends. I guess that’s what the online community is all about, right? Do you guys have anything planned for this weekend? I hope you all have a good one! xx

As I grow older, I yearn to discover and experiment with different flavours in a variety of  dishes. The recipe I’m sharing with you is a lemon herb twist on a classic dumpling recipe. Keep on reading to find out how to make this hearty and impressive dish!

A Day at the Apple Orchard

A Day at the Apple Orchard // Mocha and Moccasins

As the days get colder, there are fewer activities to partake in outside. No more swimming or tanning, but the weather is perfect for apple picking! Throw on an extra layer, and you’re good to go. Don’t forget about warming up with a cup of fresh, hot apple cider when the picking is all done. We spent over $40 on apples, but it was so worth it – hello, apple pie for weeks! I shared a sneak peak of the day on my Instagram, last week.
