Last Thing Thursdays

4 Oct

It’s Thursday, which means tomorrow is Friday, which means today is a good day. Take my advice and just go with it, deal? Okay good!

The Last Thing…

I Made. This One Earth Chia Chia Coconut Cookie Mix

Holy was it good! You know me, I like to bake, but it is almost always from scratch. I was a little bit skeptical about these wheat free cookies, but my goodness was I wrong. They were delicious. They had a slightly different texture than a regular cookie, but it was by no means a bad thing, they were moist and chewy, packed with fiber, and had great flavor . Not only will I make them again, I can’t wait to try more One Earth products, specifically the Banana Quinoa Granola Bar Mix.

I Wanted to Make. This!

Pinch of Yum‘s Butternut Squash Mac ‘n’ Cheese with Bacon, Caramelized Onions, and Apples. Enough said!

I Downloaded. The VSCO CAM App. And let me tell you it’s worth every one of the 99 pennies it cost. Here is a before, and after of a photo I took.



You really want those carrots, I know you do! The VSCO Camera app has quite a few more settings, and editing capabilities in comparison to other camera apps I have used. I was able to edit this photo, save, and then upload it to Instagram without adding any additional filters. I think I am in love.

I Ogled on Etsy. The On Your Case Store

How Cute are these iPhone cases, I want at least 6 of them, that’s normal right?

Thought was Genius. Thanks to Ashley, my coffee will never go cold again.

Use a candle warmer to keep your coffee or tea warm, genius I tell ya!

I Pinned. This beautiful home.

The ceiling is absolutely amazing, so rustic. I dream of having a home like this! Speaking of homes, Diary of a Jewell is giving away two pairs of tickets to the Vancouver Home and Design Show, Oct 11-14. Head over to our Facebook Page and share it for a chance to win, contest ends tomorrow!

I Was Looking Forward to. Today!!! Why you ask? Because I am so excited to see Carrie Underwood in concert.

Yes, I have seen her before, but who cares?!

I hope that the evening you have planned is as enjoyable as mine! It’s all a matter of opinion right?! If not, well…revel in the fact the weekend is almost here!



Last Thing Thursdays

21 Jun

Yesterday was the first day of Summer and amazingly Vancouver was fortunate enough to actually see some sun…thank god! On that note

The Last Thing I…

Was baffled by. My fortune after Chinese food the other night…definitely not what I was expecting! I even checked both sides to make sure I didn’t miss something.

Awfully demanding, wouldn’t you say?

Did. Visited an iconic Vancouver attraction I haven’t been to in years. I have been at a conference for work the past couple of days and I was lucky enough to attend an event at the Capilano Suspension Bridge (thanks Vancouver Coast & Mountains!). Check out the new Cliffwalk…what a view!

Gave myself a fail for. Not re reading my text prior to sending and then realizing it said perverting instead of Pemberton. Damn auto correct!

Wanted to buy. The COCO bfriend bracelet. I adore the bfriend bracelets, they are so freakin cute! The pearl and gold combo totally sold me and I love the fact the designer Monika of The doctor’s closet is a Vancouver girl.  How awesome! You should buy one…just sayin’

Pinned. This dress, I want it. That it all.

Made. These classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

And yes they taste as good as they look. Just ask Andrew he ate at least 17 of them. The recipe is on its way…promise! I gotta have something to keep you coming back don’t I? Baked goods are usually the answer.

Oh, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway for designer band aids. All the cool kids are doing it.

You’re scabby knee could look this awesome!
