Happy Good Friday! Every year when Easter approaches, the house is stocked with loads of (unnecessary but delicious) chocolates. Cadbury mini eggs has got to be my all-time favourite. But…
Food & Drink
Which Nespresso machine is right for you?
As a proud owner of five Nespresso machines (yes, I said five), I quite often get questions from readers, friends and family on which Nespresso machine they should buy. Well, that’s a good question! Honestly, each coffee machine is unique and can offer something slightly different from another. But if you’re in the market for only one (most people are), then I would focus on what is most important to you. For example, are you looking for a machine that offers you the kind of coffee you want to drink daily? Or are you seeking for one to entertain guests? Perhaps you’re most keen on the design and style of the machine.
Who doesn’t love a life hack?! A few weeks ago, I was invited to join Ford Canada at the Ford Life Hack Academy event in New York City to celebrate…
I love a little spice (or sometimes a lot!) in my food. I find spicy foods so warm and comforting. With the dreadful temperatures we’ve been experiencing this winter, all I can think about is snuggling up to a cozy, spicy bowl of stew or perhaps a hot spicy beverage such as this Chili Chocolate Latte for a change!
Got a Coffee Lover in your life?
We’ve ALL got a coffee lover in our lives. If you’re still racking your brain on Christmas gift ideas, here is a great last minute, yet impressive option. Gift boxes and baskets have really stepped up their game in the last several years but guess what, you too, can curate a beautiful one without having to spend hundreds of dollars.
Ready for some delicious festive coffees?
Holiday season aka the best time of the year is finally upon us and I’ve got so much fun DIYs, decor and lifestyle inspired content planned for you! First up is a selection of delectable festive coffees.
Nespresso recently released their holiday variations – Confetto, and these flavoured capsules don’t disappoint! The collection is nothing but fun and you can really experience the originality behind the design of the collection, through the flavours, the names of the capsules and the bold and colourful packaging created by globally respected artists, Craig and Karl.
Are you a coffee lover?
If so, when you sample a new coffee you’ve not yet tried before, is there a tasting ritual you deploy, much like that of wine lovers: swishing the glass, and examining the colour and texture? I do. Though I have my usual list of Nespresso capsules I drink on a regular basis, from time to time, I’m given an opportunity to experience new and exciting releases. And when I am drinking a type of coffee for the first time, I like to close my eyes, smell the aromas, and as I’m consuming my first sip, I like to imagine being transported to the hidden origins of these special creations.
There is nothing more fabulous than being able to enjoy terraces and patios extending into the Fall season. When you’ve spent so much time and energy putting together a tranquil outdoor living area, you certainly want to prolong the use of it as much as you can.
I find Fall evenings a great time to entertain outdoors. With the help of some extra comfy cushions and snuggly blankets, your terrace can transform into a cozy and welcoming sanctuary. And guess what, serving up your favourite wines, help too!
I love pumpkin spice but haven’t tried it in a latte.
The weather is getting cooler which means cozy and hot bevvies are making their way back! “Pumpkin spiced” everything seems to be quite popular during the Fall season and to be honest as much as I enjoy a delicious pumpkin pie, I’ve always been a little skeptical of infusing my coffee with pumpkin.
With the launch of Nespresso’s Limited Edition BARISTA collection which has been specially crafted to enjoy with milk, I obviously took the opportunity to attempt my very own homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte. And let’s just say… I think I’m hooked!
Just how many ways can you enjoy coffee? Lots!
Last weekend, I hosted my two fellow Nespresso babes, Dani from Girls of TO and Esther of This Wild Heart for a fun (and coffee) filled afternoon at my home! I adore these two ladies, they often fuel my inspiration and I am so thrilled to collaborate with them on this month’s post. The three of us have been concocting all sorts of delicious Nespresso recipes via our respective blogs, but we really wanted to push the envelope this month and decided to join forces and see just how creative we can get! As we near the end of Summer, we wanted to center our recipes one last time on the limited release of Nespresso On Ice.
