happy weekend! what’s happening in your world this weekend? i’ll be hitting up the season opener of the local farmer’s market on saturday (is it crazy how excited i get for this?!). after that, we’ll be attending the EAT! vancouver food & cooking festival – i was invited to cover the event as media am i’m excited to check out the demos, meet some celeb chefs and eat some delish food. i’ll also be bugging my boyfriend to help me hang the office shelves that have been hanging around on the floor for six weeks – tragic! cross your fingers for me that we don’t find something more interesting to steal our attention away… as usual.

have a great weekend and enjoy a few sparkles over coffee!

happy mother’s day to all of you lovely, selfless ladies out there! i’m so lucky to have a wonderful mother, and like many of you, think she’s the BEST one there is. this weekend, as mentioned, i’ll be hosting a full brunch for both families to celebrate – i’ll let you know how it turns out!

if you’re in vancouver, stop by the EPIC expo – it’s a trade show that focuses on conscious consumer¬†lifestyles featuring the latest trends in fashion, food, health, beauty, home & garden, recreation, and transportation. i’ll be over in the epicurean corner on saturday with erin ireland sampling her delicious, artisan and to die for banana bread – so stop by and say hi if you’ll be there, too? (we’ll be in bright yellow – can’t miss us!)
