Studio update.

Sorry for the radio silence on these parts, but we've been so busy this past week, but it's been for a good reason: we are happy to announce that we finally got the keys to our new studio! That combined with all of our Easter gatherings, we didn't have a whole lot of extra time kicking around. We can hardly wait until we can paint, and move the rest of our stuff in, but until then we will give you a sneak peek into our new space.

We are on the third floor and it overlooks our first store on Albert St! The amazing natural light and original hardwood floors are what sold us the second that we walked in the door. There's so much potential in this space!

First things first, we took a trip to Ikea and stocked up on the necessities: good shelving, cozy area rugs, fun chairs, and wine glasses of course. 

Here's a peek at some of the colors we will be incorporating into the new space. Lots of white, but also lots of color. These pieces were all from Ikea and we are absolutely in love with them!

We left our door open and immediately made a few new friends, including this sassy cat- Princess Cardamom, who also answers to Chicken. There's also a three-legged cat named Tom that is somewhat of a wanderer in the building.

Ok, that's all for now, sorry again for not posting much in the last week, but not to worry, we have SO many exciting things that we will be announcing and doing over the next few months and we can hardly wait to share them with you guys!

Good things on Good Friday.

We can't believe it's already Good Friday! April is whizzing past and it still doesn't feel much like Spring around these parts. We hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend. Ok, now back to my bowl of mini eggs for breakfast...
How pretty are these colors?

Pineapple crush. Good looking drink with a cute name. Find the recipe here.

Nothing lasts forever, not even Winter.

I absolutely love these drop chairs.

Such a pretty Instagram picture.

Homemade Easter treats.

Instead of just buying the usual mini chocolate eggs this season, if you are feeling ambitious why not try baking some of your own Easter treats? Here are a few recipes that will satisfy your sweet tooth that we have been dying to try:

Not only is this grapefruit custard pie pretty to look at, but it also sounds so unique and delicious (and is also gluten free.)

 Whoa. Salted Caramel Cups. I didn't know these existed but I can already tell that they will be my new favorite.

Continuing on the salted caramel theme, these Salted Caramel Blackberry Brownies look pretty darn incredible. That sounds like a very interesting flavor combination.

Obviously anything filled with Nutella is a winner.  Get the recipe for these yummy looking Nutella stuffed doughnuts here.

This recipe for Big Bad Carrot Cake with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting seems like the perfect spring dessert.

Happy baking! XO

Make Time.

Our lovely friend Jasmine from Make Time Products here in Winnipeg was extremely generous and sent us some of her home-made skin products a few weeks back. They are all raw and organic products and feel so fresh and amazing on your skin!
We got to sample the "Lip Time" which smells like peppermint and feels so great on your lips. We also got a jar of the "Tea Time" which is a raw organic matcha green tea facial mask. You apply the mask, and then keep it on your face for 30 minutes and then wipe away with a warm, wet cloth. It detoxifies your skin and fights acne. 

Face Time is a raw organic face moisturizer and was our favorite of the products we got to use. It smells like peppermint and makes your skin feel silky smooth! You don't need to apply much and it's also really great as make up primer. It's antibacterial, fights acne and helps fade scars too. We will definitely be buying more of this when it runs out!

Sugar Time is a raw organic body scrub that smells so good you're going to want to dip a spoon into it! It's made with organic cane sugar, coconut oil, vanilla extract, peppermint oil and vitamin E. 
Bring this stuff into the shower with you and give yourself a good scrub down and it will keep your skin feeling like butter. 

How cute is her packaging?

You can shop other amazing products from Make Time over here. Honey Time, and Coffee Time look so good too! If you live in Winnipeg, you can place an order and they will deliver to your door! 

We are completely in love with these products, and love supporting fellow creative people who are passionate about what they do!
