Ladies of London
This new Bravo show is right up my alley! The aristocratic society of London, England is documented and the drama is great!! I love all of the Real Housewives, so this show is perfect for me. It’s very similar to the Housewives series. The show airs on Mondays at 10:00PM. LOVE IT!!

Rachel Talbott YouTube Videos/Vlog

Rachel has the best vlogs out there! She gives great advice on many topics- her beauty hauls and the “get ready” videos are my favourites. J I have used many of the products and items she recommends and I have really liked the suggestions overall! You have to check her youtube videos out!
Here is the link to her YouTube page:

Maria Menounos EveryGirl’s Guide to Life
Maria Menounos’ Everygirl’s Guide to Life Book is by far one of the most informative and best overall book that I have read so far. It has information on everything you could imagine (Fitness, Food, Organizing, Beauty Tips, etc.). I recently gave this to my mom to check out and she really enjoyed the book as well. J I would definitely recommend the book to anyone!

Maria Menounos ‘ Everygirl’s Guide to Fitness 

This is the second book that Maria has written and it is all about diet and fitness. The book is quite straightforward but gives great tips and reminders about losing weight effectively. I really enjoyed this book; it gave me some great tips to apply to my everyday life. J

Your Tea Tiny Tea Teatox 

I AM OBSESSED. This is the BEST tea EVER!! It helps reduce bloating, it clears up your skin, and it tastes AMAZING. I love this brand!! You are supposed to drink the tea before each meal 3 times per day, and it is a really great aid in weight loss. I have noticed a huge difference in the way my clothes are fitting and the way I feel. I’m so glad I found out about this brand!

These are my current favourites, and I hope you guys get to check them out!!

Banana Muffin Recipe :)

Hey everyone!!
I hope the start of the week is treating you well!

I started this rainy/stormy week off with a great recipe given to me by my mother-in-law (original recipe was from her mom).
I’ve heard about this famous banana bread recipe from my hubby pretty much since we started dating. It’s his favourite childhood recipe that his grandma and mom used to make and he was thrilled when I decided to make a large batch last minute for him. It was very stormy out and it was the perfect stay at home weather, so while I was keeping dry indoors, I wanted to be productive and make a large batch of these amazing muffins.

They turned out great and I have to admit, these are the BEST banana muffins that I have ever tasted!! Another amazing thing about this recipe was how easy it turned out to be! It didn’t take me very long at all- and the end result was perfect! J

What you will need:

2 Bananas
1 Egg
½ Tsp Baking Powder
1 Cup Flour
½ Cup Sugar
½ Tsp Baking Soda
¼ Tsp Salt
¼ Cup Melted Butter


Mash bananas; add sugar and slightly beaten egg.  Add the melted butter.  Add the dry ingredients and mix well.  Place in Muffin tins (with cupcake papers if desired).  Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.  Makes 8 large or 12 smaller muffins.

FYI: I wanted to make a large batch of these so I could freeze some, so I tripled the recipe. J


Enjoy!!- I also wanted to include a picture of the crazy storm that was occurring!

Thankfully the power didn't go out while I was baking these muffins!!

Favourite Friday- Brand Edition

Hey guys!!
I can't believe it's already the weekend AND Favourite Friday!

This week went so well! It was the perfect summer week. We did get a bit of rain but overall the weather was so nice! :)

I have recently become obsessed with the Kate Somerville Skincare Line. I love how it works great with my sensitive skin, and how each of the products that I’ve used have transformed my skin in so many ways. I find that my skin is now blemish free, hydrated, and glowy since I started to use this line. I purchased the line at Sephora.

Favourite Friday- Best Overall Brand Edition 

Here are the products from Kate Somerville that I have and that I’ve fallen in love with:

Quench Hydrating Mask

I LOVE this mask!!! It is by far the most moisturizing mask I have ever used! You leave it on for 5-10 minutes and your face feels amazing afterwards.

Oil Free Moisturizer
This moisturizer is great for daily use. It isn't heavy, it absorbs quickly and my face feels hydrated all day.

Nourish Daily Moisturizer
I use this moisturizer every night before bed. It's a bit thicker than the oil free daily moisturizer, but it definitely is not heavy. Love it!

Gentle Daily Wash
This face wash is amazing! It is so gentle and it makes my skin feel like silk! It doesn't make me break out and it seems to brighten my skin. 

I  hope you guys enjoyed this post, and I hope that you get to try this amazing line!

Good morning, happy monday!

Happy Monday!

I hope your weekend went well! 
My best friend and I went to a local arts festival on Saturday morning and we had a great time. I love going to local events like that! I found a few neat items, and I purchased a lavender linen spray that I am LOVING right now!! Such a soothing scent! 

I am starting my week off with a little bit of Coldplay playing in the background. Their new album just came out and I'm pretty much obsessed with the song "Magic". 

Here's the youtube video of their song.
