It was Sunday morning and I woke up craving a nice homestyle Sunday Brunch.
After finding out the local restaurant was closed, I ventured around the corner and found the Crossing’s Pub & Eatery.
It resembles a Victorian farmhouse converted into an “inn style” pub, complete with seating on both the main and upper levels of the building. Our server mentioned that the top floors could be reserved for more private dining and parties. The overall atmosphere was welcoming and felt like “Home”.
It was a difficult decision, but among all the delicious options I decided to order the hearty flat iron steak and eggs. When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised by the presentation, the steak was cooked to perfection and full of juicy flavourings, the scrambled eggs were fluffy and the added touches of fruit and garnish added charm to this handsome looking plate!
This is a great place for anyone from family to business, their customer service made my stay pleasant and welcoming. I highly recommend this restaurant for those Sunday Brunch cravings and I can’t wait to go back to try their dinner menu.
It’s Sunday and the week is officially over and I couldn’t be happier. I had an unusually productive week that lead to a relaxing weekend. I’ve been making my Christmas lists and planning out the colour scheme of this years Christmas. Being in the new house makes this year extra special and makes me more excited about all the holiday activities I have planned for the kids.
I’ve been editing and uploading new videos to my YouTube channel more regularly and I’m enjoying the routine. I’ve been working on some projects with my sons and we’ve all been having such a great time. My kids never cease to amaze me with their fabulous ideas, they inspire me every day!
I hope everyone has a fabulous day, much love to you all! 😉
I received the LANEIGE VoxBox, a couple weeks ago and it was a complete surprise, so it’s safe to say I am #lovingLANEIGE!!
I have been trying the Brightening Sparkling Water Foam Cleanser by LANEIGE over the last few weeks and it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time as I was in the market for a face cleanser to add to my daily skincare routine.
Just like hair styling mousse, you simply shake the can and spray a small amount on your hand or fingertips, then rub it evenly over your entire face and neck. The scent is fresh and sweet, similar to the smell of lemon meringue. The foam formula melts down releasing all the oils and makeup from my skin. It even removed my waterproof makeup with minimal effort.
After a thorough rinse, my face ends up feeling and smelling refreshed without any product residue.
Since I’ve been using this product, I can see a visible change in my skin. My skin tone looks a lot more even, smooth and moisturized.
Since the kids have been back in school I’ve been running around keeping up with their schedules as well as my own. My deadlines are coming up quick and as I was rushing around to get to appointments; I realized that I ran out of some key makeup products: eyebrow pencil and mascara.
I headed to Walmart to pick up some items and picked up a few items to try out.
I haven’t purchased drugstore products in a few years so I was very interested to see how far along their formulas had come. I found some false lashes during my search so I decided to try them all exclusively for the upcoming weeks.
Brow Artist Designer by L’Oreal
At first I found the pencil to be really stiff, however I warmed up the product with my fingertips and it glided on nicely. It isn’t a very pigmented product but that also helps for those who are a little heavily handed with brow pencil applications. The attached spool brush is so handy especially for travel purposes.
*Tip: Use short strokes with a light hand alternating the spool brush to distribute brow product evenly
The Super Sizer by CoverGirl What drew me to this particular mascara was the brush. It is a thin rubber brush with short bristles which makes getting into the root base of my lashes effortless. The formula is like a gel consistency and it surprised me with it’s staying power. It survived my 12 hour day without flaking nor running.
*Tip: The formula takes a little longer to dry so wait 5-10 seconds after application to ensure the formula is fully dried.
Demi-Wispies by Ardell
I chose to try these out after they caught my eye with how pretty the curl is in each false lash. In comparison with my pairs of lashes from the Premium Luxe Collection by House of Lashes, these lashes have a much thinner band and are easier to apply. The design of the lash flares out in length and width as it approaches the outer corner of the eyes making the eyes look more flirty. This is a great affordable and versatile lash that you can easily transform any look from day to night.
Nothing can humble a parent more than when they require an operation. Although it was considered “minor” the powerless feeling was so overwhelming when they wheeled him out of the room in a steel crib that resembled an animal cage.
The newest hospital improvement is now a random number attached to the patient’s name. The waiting room has a huge monitor to watch and track the patient’s whereabouts. It’s a lot like the airport monitors where one searches through to look for their flight number. He stared at me with his great big eyes and it took everything I had to not breakdown and cry.
The whole hospital visit took about 5 hours.
It took about 3 days for the pain to finally subside and his appetite has finally come back. I’ve been awake on 24hour on-call nurse duties so, I’m happy that he’s back to his sleep schedule.
Now that my son is healing, I’ve been able to film and edit so you will be seeing much more of the video projects I’ve been working on as well as my radio show shenanigans.
