Lovely & Unrelated


Though I know we still have a solid month of summer left, Labour Day will forever and always mark the end of the season for me. And although Fall is technically my favourite of the bunch, I still like to take a moment to bid adieu to those warm, easy-breezy days. I’ve yet to fulfill even a fraction of the things I had unofficially added to my summer bucket list, but I am definitely excited for what’s ahead! I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend, and I’ll be back on Tuesday with more goodies! While I’m gone…

Late Summer Salad


I’ve been making this ridiculously delicious fig and mozzarella salad for a while now, and have been meaning to share it forever. So last week, I went out and picked up all the ingredients. And then life happened. And by the time I got around to actually making it my figs had gotten so sticky and icky that they were completely unusable. Out of sheer luck (thank you blogger gods!), the basket of fresh Ontario peaches I had purchased that same day were at the most perfectly edible consistency. Ripe and sweet and juicy and perfect. So I tossed them in, in lieu of the figs. And honestly? It was just as good, if not better, than the original recipe. It’s healthy, flavourful, versatile (apparently!) and makes for the perfect late summer salad. Plus, look how pretty!

One Piece, Two Looks: A Shibori Headboard

In all honesty, I had an entirely different post lined up for today. But while searching for some new accessories for our apartment the other evening, I came across this shibori headboard and all bets went out the window. Can you even handle the pretty? I immediately started daydreaming up a million and one scenarios in which this beauty played a staring role. But in light of brevity, I’ve narrowed it down to two favourites:

So let’s take a vote! Are you on team coastal or team contemporary? Though I’d do unmentionable things for that contemporary lamp, if I had to choose, I have to say my feet remain firmly on team coastal.
