This & That Fridays – September 18


So I’ve decided to add a new weekly post to my blog.  It’ll be called This & That Fridays and it’s basically just going to be sharing whatever I enjoyed/saw/tried/did over the last week.

Lately I’ve been feeling that my posts are pretty long-winded.  So I’ll be keeping these posts short and sweet and relaxed – perfect for Fridays.  Because these are so simple and quick to write, I’m going to commit to doing them EVERY Friday (#noprocrastinationallowed).   So I hope you enjoy them!

Now, on to post #1!

I made this Sun-dried Tomato Pasta recipe this week and it was delicious!  I made a few modifications – substituted plain greek yogurt for the cream, did a quick blend of the sun-dried tomatoes into the sauce (not the point where they were fully blended, just so they were in smaller chunks) and used a basil and tomato chicken sausage instead of the suggested andouille sausage.  It’s a relatively easy one so I’ll be adding this to my recipe rotation for sure.


My new favourite drink from Starbucks is the Cinnamon Dolce Hot Chocolate.  I can’t drink coffee or caffeinated tea (gives me the shakes!) and the chilly weather we’ve been experiencing lately has me gravitating towards warm drinks in the morning.  I get it non-fat and no whip and it’s not too sweet or too rich.  I see they also sell the mix in store, might have to give that a try for when I’m craving one at home.


When I was in New York a few weeks ago, I treated myself to my very first Kate Spade handbag. I’ve been eyeing it for months and waiting for it go on sale.  And so far, I’m really liking it!  The colour is so vibrant and bright and I love the girly bow on the front.  It makes me happy!


I’m sure you’ve heard/seen that Sephora released their holiday box sets…and there are many enticing options.  Coveting this and this.

I need some ideas to store my make up brushes – I’m loving this idea via Pinterest.  Time to hit up Dollarama and Michaels!

Speaking of weekend, I cannot wait to sleep in and relax!  I literally had the week from hell.  Work was extremely stressful, as were some personal things going on in my life right now that were also stress-inducing.  I can’t wait to forget about it all for 2 glorious days…

And on that note, I think I’ll sign off.  Feel free to share your faces of the week with me!  And have a great weekend!

    Mmm… that pasta sounds delicious! Especially with the substitutions since greek yogurt is more of a staple in my fridge than cream. Great idea for a weekly series, looking forward to next week’s post! 🙂
