Recently, two of my friends celebrated their sixteenth birthdays together, and had a little party. Those of us who were invited all pitched in some money for each girl's present. The two girls actually gave me permission to photograph the gifts before I wrapped them, so I thought I'd share the presents that we ended up getting, because I'm personally really happy with the quality of the presents we bought, and I know that my friends that we gave the presents to are very, very happy as well!

Whether you eat them for breakfast, brunch or dinner, pancakes are a delicious treat that are fun to make at home. I love making brunch foods, and I find it really interesting to see different countries' takes on pancakes, because they're enjoyed all over the world!

Anyone who's gone through a week of exams—whether they were really hard or not that bad—knows how stressful it can be. I actually have exams coming up in less than a month, but I'm not to the point of studying a whole lot or stressing out... yet. This kind of "pamper evening" seems to be really popular on the internet, but I personally have them once in a while to de-stress and relax, and also to remember to care for my personal well-being and my skin. If I ever get stressed out about something, I tend to neglect "pampering" myself, so it's nice to set aside an hour or two on a not-so-busy-night and just indulge in some relaxation time!

Canadian winters are really cold and snowy, so I'm usually wearing so many layers that it's hard to care much about fashion. Today, I was inside all day, but I felt like being a bit more dressed up than my pyjamas and robe, so I put together a simple outfit of the day :)
