I created this DIY for my submission to I Like Her Style Vancouver and absolutely LOVE it! Was so thrilled to see it accepted and published in their magazine and can’t get over how amazing it looks from just a few simple supplies.

Julie came over with not one but THREE treat bags, some with candies and other with chocolate pretzels and cookies. Each of the bags are a little different but all so cute, she has them sorted from easy, easier to easiest in her blog post. Which would you do?

These cute little things were one of the treats that Julie made. They would work great inside a little treat bag like she did above or on their own how we styled them on our candy charcuterie spread.

4. Hanging Heart Wreath

This craft would be so perfect to do with kids. Keisha shares how she created this heart wreath on her blog and within another Valentine’s Day inspired party (It’s featured on BC Living here!) We used the wreath in our decor resting on the shelf, thought if you created a few it would look super cute as a backdrop hanging off the wall too.

5. Chocolate Covered Popcorn & Sprinkles

The hardest part is melting the chocolate, the rest is pure enjoyment. You have to make sure when melting chocolate you get it just right, not to hot or it will get hard again and won’t be easy to work with or taste as good. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the spread out popcorn and then top with sprinkles to add a pop of colour. Simple and delicious!

6. Blush Pink Heart Free Printable

Another previous year’s Valentine’s creation is this simple free printable heart. Created in my favorite colour you can print and frame for literally instant home decor, be it Valentine’s Day or any other day of the year.

One of my Instagram partnerships is with SodaStream and I put together this Italian Soda Recipe to share there. It turns out to be such a pretty shade of pink, tastes like a milkshake and satisfies all the sweet and creamy cravings all in one.

8. Valentine’s X & O Banner

This post was a guest post a few years back from some girls that I connected with on Instagram. It’s still one of my favorites as it’s super simple to make and such a pretty look when it’s finished. See photos by clicking the link below.

Two years ago Keisha planned a Valentine’s Day party with a handful of other local bloggers. I created some heart shaped chocolate covered strawberries and skewered them to make arrow hearts. For this little party we kept it simple and changed the recipe, using coconut oil instead of marshmallows. The main differences are the taste and the chocolate and oil combo melts a lot quicker.

10. Vegan Heart Sugar Cookies

I may or may not have snagged these from my friend The Cake Mama a few days before this party. hehe! She was speaking at a Vancity Business Babes event I attended, had the most amazing sweets tables and at the end of it all somehow still had some left over. So, when you can’t do it yourself, confide in a friend or local business to create the perfect treat for you.

  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada

  • Looking at the calendar like.... it can't actually be Father's Day this week can it? For anyone still looking for a gift, I have a deal to share! @sodastreamcanada currently has a bundle promotion running on their website until June 16th where you can save $20 when you bundle a FIZZI (your choice of colour), Soda Press Co. Pink Grapefruit flavour and the 'Love Your Planet' Bottle. For everything our Dads do for us, the least we can do is get them a gift we know they’ll love. See direct link in my stories for promotion details!
.
I also created a super yummy drink for you all to try. Inspired by Father's Day, I put together a mixed drink using my SodaStream FIZZI + their Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to create a Pink Grapefruit and Gin Cocktail (or mocktail) recipe. Here's how to make it:

Ingredients:

Flavoured sparkling water using 2 tbsp of the Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour by @sodastreamcanada
1 ounce gin (optional)
Sliced grapefruit
Rosemary Sprigs

Directions:

Use your SodaStream to turn regular tap water into sparkling water in just a few seconds. Once carbonated, add 2 tbsp of SodaStream’s Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to sparkling water and mix. Fill glass to the top with ice. Pour in gin (optional), then fill glass with Pink Grapefruit flavoured sparkling water. Enjoy!
