Today I took the time to bake some Lavender Cupcakes using the Wholesome Chow mix, which I found at Winners. This baking mix is quite easy to make, as all I added was almond milk, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and oil & it is also wheat, soy, egg, nut and dairy-free! This mix has me OBSESSED. I have to be honest – I’m obsessed with anything containing lavender, but these surpassed my expectations. The light and enjoyable flavour of lavender is so delicious, and the cupcakes are so moist for being gluten-free! I am very impressed, and will definitely be on the lookout for more of these mixes to try!
I decided to make a lemon glaze, as I love mixing the flavours of lavender and lemon together. After I dribbled on the glaze, (consisting of lemon juice, icing sugar, sugar, almond milk, and vegan margarine), I grated some lemon on top for some extra zest. It really enhanced the lavender and added something extra delicious to the cupcake!
I present to you, my favourite album of the month! I know what you’re thinking, I listen to other artists besides Fleetwood Mac and Meat Loaf? What? However here I am with this months favourite: The Beach Boys by The Beach Boys. I recently dusted off this record and while it was playing I couldn’t help but dance around and be filled with pure joy. Since then I think I’ve almost worn it out with the amount I’ve played it! The Beach Boys have that irresistible upbeat summer vibe that I can’t get enough of. Songs like “It’s Gettin’ Late” encompass a sound that breathes life into my soul.
2016 Hottest Haircut – Saskatoon Style
Here I am alongside Capelli Salon Studio to help model this years hottest haircut the Lob, (short for long-bob), in the Saskatoon Style segment. I was joined by Lisa, from Global News Saskatoon and Alicia and Kassy from Capelli. These ladies are always such a joy to be around, and it is always a pleasure working with them. Watch for a how-to tutorial for beachy waves! I sure wish I had these ladies on hand to help me do my hair every morning!
Will you join the Lob squad?
Extended thank-you to all those to helped make this happen!
