Pre Christmas Christmas evening

IMG_1684.JPGThe new year will soon be upon us. And with that, the dreaded resolution. So let’s skip that and head right to planning. For some time now I’ve felt like there was a bigger window of expression for me to entertain, my motto has always been that style is not about fashion. It’s how you live your life. Wholly. So that being said, there will be some additions. I’m going to post on fashion, food, decor, arts entertaining and more. So I thought, what the heck, nothing says entertaining more then the holidays, and so I thought I’d share with you my party that I hosted last weekend. 16 people took a bit of planning, a lot of prep and a delicious smelling home

Decor is such a matter of taste, but one thing I know for certain, Christmas does not have to be red and green ;) not even a children’s table. Find a little way to add moments of magic and glitter that offer something unexpected not same old

It might be a bit of a surprise to know, that cooking and baking are a passion of mine. And something that I pride myself on. I’ve always felt like they can provide such crucial moments to create memories. I look forward to sharing more posts with you. But for this first, quite long post, I’ll keep it to the minimum with a few stars of the meal

This asparagus walnut tart is so fulfilling!! And although learning a puff pastry from scratch is daunting. It almost always is so satisfying and if you have the time I highly recommend.

Dining does not have to be fussy to be fine. Some of my favourite foods are those classics that are just made well with good ingredients. So homemade potato chips with lovely dips are totally acceptable at the appy bar. Really just monitor the heat of the oil and adjust. Otherwise the only real helpful tool in this is a mandolin which can be a lifesaver. There’s nothing better then a perfectly seasoned crunch. And if kids are there. Create little cones so they feel like they have there personal bag of chips. They’ll think that’s pretty cool

Desserts are the Crown Jewels and these two did not disappoint. But I would be amiss to not totally fully wholeheartedly endorse how amazing this gingerbread bundt cake was. The most moist cake I have ever had!!And the salted butter apple galette provided a comforting classic. Neither disappointed but I will be making the cake again. Very soon :)

In closing, I still wear my heels, and wear my tattoos, but I’m very excited to share more of me with you. And yes, I really did wear these shoes to cook. I also will be visiting physio this week;)

Happy holidays and I hope that any of these ideas or recipes might provide you with the same enjoyment they did me and my family.

Yes those are culottes and other news…

I got a bee in my black hat about culottes and the only answer was to find some;) ok I swear they are making a come back. Regardless if they aren’t, you can look like the french and such until then. Very freja, avec Lou doilon. A dash of coco too.

In other news, bullet will soon be evolving. For quite some time I’ve wished to share my other endeavours, decor, food, and entertaining. So I will start doing as such and look forward to announcing some changes in 2015

Fall Must Love’s

I have to tell ya, I’m so impressed with the goods coming out of Van these days. It’s just kind of awesome how many of these things are fast becoming my favourites aside from the fact that they’re mostly local. So here’s a little roundup of what I’m loving right now.

Fall has, fallen

IMG_9263.JPGIt always hits us like a ton of bricks, that feeling when we suddenly realize, summer is over. But alas one of the best parts of fall and winter dressing is the jackets and coats oh my. Here is my newest favourite jacket of the season by GLAMOROUS UK. The perfect piece to get me in the cozying mood.

Arriving on the Sunshine Coast to the beautiful Rock Water Resort. We were greeted with the most beautiful of last days of summer. If you haven’t been to Rock Water, it’s a must. Secluded, romantic, serene. It’s an absolute Gem. And leave it to FP to select a destination like this.

We kayaked
