Friday Wine Down

Happy Friday!

Oh what a week it has been. Work has been insane these past few weeks so I haven't had much free time to blog.

I'm working on posts here and there, but not with the consistency I would like.

BUT! I'm home this weekend and have some free time, and I am hoping to get allll caught up on blogging, friends and other stuff. Please be patient with me!

In the mean time, let's Wine Down this week and get all caught up.

Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Wings

I love chicken wings.

Seriously, I do. One of my favourite date nights with Kris is going out for chicken wings and beer before seeing a movie.

Letting Go Of Your Hatred

Today, I want to do something that I don't often do on this blog, and write about something off the cuff that I can't get off my mind.

This wasn't the post I wanted to write today, but it's itching to get out so it's the post you're going to get.

Today I want to talk about hatred.

Friday Wine Down

Happy Friday!

It's been two weeks since my last Wine Down (this is becoming a habit), I've been pretty busy with Work and Birthdays. 

This weekend I'm heading up north for some relaxation and hopefully a lot of blog post writing (yay!), I'm also hoping to take some time to read the stack of books that are piling up on my night stand.

Before all that though, I'm gonna Wine Down this week for you guys!

Wednesday Pinspiration: Father's Day Gifts

Father's Day is around the bend!

Coming up with an idea for Dad can be tough. A man can only use so many gadgets and tools after all.

When it comes to gifts for my Dad, I always like to err on the side of simple and personal. He usually goes out to buy things he really wants for himself, so Father's Day is really just about showing him I'm thinking about him.

When looking for some inspiration online, I came across some of the following items that do just that: keep it simple and personal. 

Here's some Pinspiration for Father's Day Gifts! Click on the images to be taken directly to the pin.

...Oh and Dad, if you're reading, none of these are your gifts, but nice try :P

British Virgin Islands - Natural Wonders & Activities

One of the coolest things about my trip through the British Virgin Islands were all the excursions and activities we got to experience.

When you control the boat and your own schedule, you can really make the most of your trip and see a lot of really cool things!

I keep a pretty detailed journal when I travel; reading it over after my trip I counted 16 remarkable things we did, not including restaurants or day to day activities. That's a lot of stuff for 7 days at sea!

Some of the coolest things we did though were the natural wonders of the BVIs. Hidden coves, enormous caves, pirate islands and fabulous snorkeling spots. 

Below is a list of my favourite things we saw that I urge you to visit if you find yourself in the BVIs

British Virgin Islands - Bitter End Yacht Club

One of the highlights of our trip to the British Virgin Islands was our stay at the Bitter End Yacht Club on Virgin Gorda.

About half way through our trip, we made a reservation to dock overnight and take advantage of all the activities and amenities that BEYC offers.

It was one of the best parts of our trip!

Wednesday Pinspiration: Summer Accessories

It's June It's June! We are in the final stretch to summer and I couldn't be more excited.

With long lazy days in the heat stretched out before us, it's time to take stock of your summer wardrobe and decide what you need to round out your collection.

To me, summer time is all about simplicity. Shorts and a simple tee, capris and a short sleeved blouse, a breezy sundress. But just because your outfits are simple, doesn't mean you can skip on the accessories!
