8 Things I'm Loving Now

Life has been crazy the past couple months with work and our home renovations (blog post to come). In an attempt to not go crazy looking at hundreds of faucet options, I've been focusing on things that put a smile on my face. It's amazing the difference the below have made:

MOST COMFORTABLE PAJAMAS

These are the most comfortable pajamas I own. That's no joke - no one likes pajamas more than I do. I ordered these a long time ago and they finally arrived this past week. Yes, they are oh so cute, but I have to say I am happily surprised with the fabric quality and softness. They also come with a very adorable garment bag for traveling. Thank you, Jillian Harris!

MY GRADUATION DRESSES, REVAMPED

I'm sure most prom dresses either get donated or collect dust after the big day. Both my grade eight graduation and high school prom dresses were taking up valuable closet real estate so I finally got motivated enough to do something about it. I brought them to Lucy's Dressmaking in Oakville to get them shortened and added a sweetheart neckline.  My next step is to re-dye them (after photos to be shown after this step!).

BUBBIES PICKLES

Anyone that knows me well knows my love for anything pickled. I recently found Bubbies at Whole Foods. While the price is a bit steep, I promise they will change your life. Instant addiction upon opening.

SWAROVSKI PEN

This pen originally caught my eye when I was having an one-on-one with my previous manager. For some reason, I was just instantly drawn to her pen and decided to buy one when I got my new job back in December. It writes so well and the refills are only one dollar. Its makes me feel a little more girly in a corporate world.  

LULULEMON'S ALIGN PANTS

I had some gift cards that were burning a hole in my pocket so I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and wander down Queen St. I don't remember the last time I bought anything from Lululemon because I've been finding Nike and Pink (by Victoria Secret) more affordable for workout clothes. However, my old pair of Lululemons were looking quite tired so I decided to go in. I tried on these align pants and it was like stepping into a whole new world. They seriously feel like a second skin and I have literally been living in them. 

CHERRY BOMBE MAGAZINE  

I've probably mentioned my interest in this magazine in previous posts. However, this magazine is life-changing. I've been searching for a food magazine that is both stylish and creative. I love the articles and it's a great read for anyone that loves food and pop culture. For example, they feature icons like Karlie Kloss, Chrissy Teigen and Lena Dunham on the cover. I purchase it at the Good Egg in Kensington Market (the Toronto destination for cookbooks). I've managed to score all of the issues and nothing makes me happier than seeing the entire collection on my bookshelf. 

NANA

It took a serious renovation for us to discover this delicious Thai restaurant. A couple weeks back while we were on the last stages of packing up our condo, we decided to try Nana. We couldn't believe how amazing it was and how much we craved it afterwards. I enjoyed it more than the other popular Thai spots in the city. We ended up getting takeout twice in the same week from here. My favourites included the spring rolls, pad prik king with chicken and pad thai. 

BLOGGING

I know that it's pretty unusual to put this on my list but it's brought me so much happiness lately I couldn't leave it out. Training in a corporate environment can be tough so I've really been able to rely on A Dash of Tash to get my creative juices flowing. Recently, I've been networking with more bloggers across North America and signed up for Blog Podium and TSOS Chapel Hill in the fall. I can't wait to see what this passion of mine brings over the course of the year. Thank you for those who read A Dash of Tash!
