"Sweet" Impressions, you hold the key to my red velvet heart

A huge shoutout to two ladies who have pounded pavement ... and flour ... for almost 10 years
Owners Krista & Aynsley have brought us the most adorable cookies, cupcakes and treats since 2008



Moving from St.Boniface to Stafford Square proved to be a fabulous move as the team added decorating classes, birthday parties, and a dedicated wedding section with ,  Oh My Gosh, A Donut Wall


I love the idea of custom cookies for teacher gifts, and with their "Nut Free" environment, you can feel free to supply the entire class with these sweet treats

Ladies, Congratulations on almost 10 years! 
I love you, I love your goodies, and look forward to indulging in your   red velvet cupcakes over this holiday season

The absolutely beautiful decor of their shop on Academy Road sent a yummy sweet sensation from my eyes to my belly before I even looked at my options
 I knew I was in trouble when the colour palettes of the baked goodies made me want to jump up and down in anticipation of what I was about to delight in
macarons, cupcakes, cookie sandwiches, chocolate covered cake gems,


 truffles, cake slices, mini cheesecakes and more

This Saturday indulge and support St Norbert Farmers Market

A few weeks ago, Lar and I went to St Norbert Farmers' Market and indulged


we enjoyed freshly squeezed lemonade ,  apple fritter from Bronuts , farmer burger & spring rolls


the following week I took my sister and stocked up on locally grown vegetables,  jam, deserts, and grass fed meat 

I wouldn't consider myself a great cook but these fresh greens sitting on my counter inspired me to make zucchini lasagna...and it was amazing (very surprised)


fresh flowers, honey, waffles, dog treats, wood carvings, pies, gluten free, grass fed, organic spices, jerky, hula hoops, plants, popcorn, pizza & live music

go early, check out the market, take the time to sit and enjoy some grub website for info St.Norbert Farmers Market  or St.Norbert Farmers Market facebook

Add a little "Sugar" to your summer

Even though the shop's gone, I'm always looking for great finds to add to my wardrobe
one thing I've been looking for is fun jewelry
sugar blossom jewelry is not only local, it's super cute
those who know me, know I only do black grey and white and almost all of my t-shirts have sayings so this line is perfect as it's customizable 

i love this gift idea

layer a few,  throw on a hat, grab your sunnies, and head to the beach

Aevi on Taylor carries a good selection or click on the website www.shopsugarblossom.com

this sugar makes me scream, "It's sweet to be a woman"!
