Pin-Spiration: Holiday Outfit Guide!

It's the most wonderful time of the year: Party Season!

With the holidays all around us, the champagne corks about to pop to signal the start of a new year, and everyone around you getting engaged, there are SO many parties to attend!

Work functions, shindigs with friends, family dinners and visits, church sing alongs, and good old fashioned "meet up after work drinks"!

Whats a girl to do but make sure she stays prepared?

Rosemary & Honey Crusted Pork Loin

The word "crusted" doesn't delight the senses in the same way that the words "bubbly" or "juicy" or "savory" do.

I am bound and determined to change that.

I love cooking pork loin. tenderloin, center loin. This delicious section of pork can be pulled, baked, medallion-ed and, yes, crusted.

A crusted pork loin is not only easy to prepare and delicious to eat, but it presents beautifully! This particular recipe with the rosemary crust makes for a beautiful green presentation, why not garnish with some sauteed red apples and rice around the holidays for a festive Sunday meal?

Friday Wine Down

Happy Friday!!!!

It's been a busy couple of weeks for me, I didn't even get to writing a Wine Down last week (I'm SORRY!) so I am very happy the weekend is here!

I'm off tomorrow for the day with my Brother's Girlfriend Dana for some Christmas shopping in Niagara on the Lake (We were there six months ago for her birthday). But before that holiday fun can begin, it's time to Wine Down the past TWO weeks!

Tips for Styling Really (really) Fine Hair!

Today I want to talk about something that is an ongoing struggle in my life: my incredibly fine hair.

Since my teenage years I've been struggling for more volume, curls, beach waves, fancy up-dos... anything to make my hair look photo shoot gorgeous. 

I get SO SICK of reading "sure fire ways to boost your volume" from girls with nice textured hair; these tips NEVER work for me.

If you can relate to this, hopefully you'll enjoy the tips in this post... if you can't you can at least laugh at my struggles!
