NOTES TO SELF: 01.15.18

EAT: Butter Tarts
I'm not much of a sweets person but one thing I can never resist is a delicious raisin-filled butter tart! Some recipes involve pecans, walnuts and/or raisins but I am a tried and true raisin-only fan although any of the three can be substituted for the other. Not only are they considered a truly Canadian treat but they are THE comfort food your body craves during the colder months. I've never met a Canuck who didn't immediately feel better about our 6 months of winter after devouring a butter tart! 😄

DO: 5 DIY Tricks for Fuller Lashes
I have a real love/hate relationship with mascara (I love the look of lush lashes but hate the raccoon circle smudges that I get about an hour after putting it on). Maybe massaging my eyelids might do the trick!

READ: Manners and Misdemeanors
They say no one understands 'good manners' like Town & Country and since I loved their last collection of essays on modern civility, I had to pick up their latest tome on how to manoeuvre through this modern life with a little bit of grace and a slightly new set of rules.

WEAR: Nail Trends
I rarely expose my feet during the winter months. The truth is it's too darn cold in Toronto to risk freezing off any of the little piggies just to look like one of the cool girls who run around the city sans socks but my aversion to frostbite doesn't mean I think dropping the upkeep of the tootsies is up for discussion. The winter foot needs to be pampered even when it's out of sight and yes friends, even the foot likes to be trendy so I'm treating it to one of the season's hottest nail colours at my next spa visit!!

The weather has been so cold and truly rotten in the GTA that I have been living vicariously through the sunshine-filled Instagram feed of this gorgeous Swedish lifestyle blogger who just so happens to be living proof that blondes DO have more fun!
