allkindsoflovelyblog the lazy girl's guide to gardening: buy hanging flower pots in your fave pink colour at costco (no need to adjust your screens folks, they're NEON pink!) ️ empty aforementioned hanging flower pots into your own standing planters ️ add extra soil & water ️ stand back & admire your ingenuity. tell yourself: you got this, girl. ️ run into the house screaming like a banshee two minutes later when an irate looking wasp (didn't get a good look at his face but i'm pretty sure he was pissed off) comes around to admire your work ️ immediately head to canadian tire to buy a fake wasp's nest 2d

allkindsoflovelyblog it was tough work but i handled it like a pro & tried 9 delish gelato flavours tonight! ready? here goes: lemon ginger (my fave!), blueberry basil, mango mint, vanilla whisky, milano cookie, apricot champagne, malted chocolate straciatella, tangerine peach & strawberry coconut. i rode #josephinepinkytuscadero to & from the gelato party, which makes my gluttony perfectly acceptable, right? @cravingsgelato #gelatolovelaunch 4d

allkindsoflovelyblog hey peeps! we're baaack! i had wanted to post photos from our trip to mexico (surprise!) in real time but wifi was slow as molasses and connecting & being present with my mom became infinitely more important once we arrived. here's a sneak peek photo from our vacation blog post, which i'm hoping to have up tomorrow night. that is, if i can stop procrastinating and watching crap tv like married at first sight (which i love). #allkindsoflovelyinmexico 1w

allkindsoflovelyblog scott surprised me yesterday with the news that he's sending me & my mom on a trip somewhere warm for a week. he planned this because he wants me to be relaxed before we have our embryo transfer. we leave *this* saturday morning & i won't know where we're going until we get to the airport! crazy, right?! so i thanked him the best way i know how, with a tasty caprese pizza: bocconcini cheese, fresh basil & plum tomatoes drizzled with balsamic glaze on a homemade crust. p.s. you can read more about the surprise (& see my new bathing suit) on my blog. link in profile 4w

allkindsoflovelyblog after an indulgent weekend, this is tonight's dessert: dragon fruit, mango, pineapple & strawberry salad. my version of a fruit cup. if you're not sure about buying dragon fruit, go for it! it has a very mild flavour & tastes like a cross between pear & kiwi. i like drizzling it with mint, lime juice & honey to make the flavours sing! sounds super duper cheesy, but it works. 4w

allkindsoflovelyblog my new fave treat (perfect for a sweet tooth): homemade yolos from @ohsheglows, a healthy riff on rolos. instead of caramel, these are filled with medjool dates & a smidge of peanut butter, then dipped in dark chocolate & topped with pink salt. #vegancandy 1mon

allkindsoflovelyblog my mom & i had a much needed pedi date at @thenailkeeper salon today. we had such a fun time chatting & laughing with our estheticians, vivian & heidi, who told us many of their clients don't interact much with them & instead are on their phones for the duration of their appointments. that's when it hit me -- how lucky i am to have a mom who taught me that the connections we make with others is what makes us human & is also what brings joy into our lives. we can't understand each other if we don't know each other. needless to say, an hour into our appointment and my mom, in her sweet chatty way, managed to get us an invite to vivian's upcoming wedding. haha, sure do love that mama of mine! p.s. after much consternation, i picked the bright fuschia 🏻 1mon
  •   thenailkeeper Beautiful message @allkindsoflovelyblog. Our ladies enjoyed your company just as much #goodconnections 1mon
