It’s summer here in Vancouver and all I want to eat is fresh and light food. This traditional Lebanese tabbouleh recipe with fresh mint and parsley is so so refreshing! Mission accomplished! To prepare this recipe, you need to be armed with strong eyes that don’t cry easily and patience. Yes, chopping parsley and mint leaves takes a lot of time....

And another dress outfit on the blog! This one reminds me of the 1920's because of the square neckline, the fitted waistline and the light fabric. I don't know if you can see it but the dress has a delicate flower print (tiny blue, white and red daisies). This summer dress is perfect for hot summer days and I accessorized it with my blue bag Pliage by Longchamp and blue wedges.
I don’t think anybody really needs directions on how to have a great time on a beautiful island, especially if they are in good company and the weather doesn’t play tricks. But let me tell you about my weekend on Salt Spring Island (I went there for the long weekend of Canada Day) and how you could spend a fabulous time if you decided to sail there.

The great news is that pomegranates are back in season! Yeahh!
What happens when you go to the best Italian restaurant in town (I’m talking about “Ask for Luigi” in Vancouver) and you get a grasp of how delicious their olive oil cake tastes because your hubby lets you have a spoon or two (for the record, I did not order dessert because I thought I was full)? Well of course you want to try and see if you can bake as well as Luigi!
Mascara is the first beauty product I ever bought and I remember quite vividly the shopping trip that led to my first makeup purchase, including the fact that my parents were very reluctant to give me the permission to go shopping on my own. But who did not experienced that?? Since then, mascara has... Continue Reading →
Chia seeds pudding is the perfect answer to your sweet cravings! My first attempt at baking chia seed puddings was with cherries and it turned out quite well. That’s why I decided to make a different version with even more red fruits and apricots. Since I live in Canada, I’ve discovered so many new ingredients and recipes and I couldn’t be more grateful.
