My Love for Garden Centers

It's that time of the year where garden centers are in full swing and there are gorgeous plants everywhere. I shopped on a weekend, so many items had been picked over, but once I laid eyes on these babies, I was sold.

Berries Blue and Red

I somehow hoarded a bunch of free product coupons...enough for 14 boxes of berries. Thanks Special K! I redeemed them all in a span of a week, so needless to say there ended up being an abundance of fruit. I got some 2lb boxes of strawberries, some 1lb and pints of blueberries. I thought about getting rasberries, but I've got those growing in the backyard and they're taking over.

Elle Canada 2015 Beauty Grand Prix

This past February, I was sent a hefty box filled with full sized skincare and cosmetics from Elle Canada to test and evaluate them. The products were all concealed with pretty holographic stickers so they remained brand-less to keep reviews unbiased, but if you're a regular shopper, you'll recognize most of the packaging. As a first time juror, I was thrilled. It was like Christmas in spring!

Mother's Day, Paper Flowers

Better late than never, right? Happy (belated) Mother's Day to moms and mother figures out there!
I spent it having family dinner with my grandmother and made Rich's mom a little bouquet of paper poppies, a lemon poppy seed bundt cake and a card. I've been feeling crafty.

Late Night Shenanigans Downtown

I can't remember the last time I wandered around downtown until the wee hours of the morning and took the "vomit comet" home. Our evening started at 4:30pm, when we took the train down to Yonge and Dundas.

*Excuse the phone photos. Movie screening = no real camera.*

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and often veganize recipes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's really cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!
