Summer Sundays

We took Taylor shopping in downtown Edmonton last Sunday. Whenever we're in the area we love to visit Coup, Who Cares?, Holt Renfrew, and Club Monaco. - J, K, & T Outfit Details:

Friends, Food, & Florals

Summer has finally returned! After YEARS weeks of rain in Edmonton, we finally got to enjoy some beautiful weather. We got together on the weekend and pigged out on Kaila's backyard patio.  The table was filled with peonies, truffle popcorn, white chocolate scones with strawberry cream,
macarons, cucumber sandwiches, croissants, biscotti cookies, and passion iced tea.

Oak + Fort Grand Opening

Oak + Fort is a great new store on Whyte Avenue and the corner of 104st. Although the store has been opened for a few months now, Saturday was the official opening.  The store offers clean cut, simple pieces in Alexander-Wang-esque silhouettes. They also have an AMAZING jewelry and accessories collection.  The majority of their pieces fall in the $20 to $120 price range, which makes their stylish items affordable for many people. We had an amazing time at the opening with the great DJ, amazing food and treats, and of course the clothing and accessories!

The Macaron

Green Tea Macarons with Chai Buttercream Filling
Many people are hesitant about making the macaron, however I found a foolproof recipe that produced excellent results! My friends and I did a twist on the basic batter and added green tea matcha powder to create the shells. For our filling, we created a chai flavored buttercream based on this recipeI am definitely going to try making other types after this successful turn out! Really, any flavor can be made into a macaron. Macarons make an amazing gift, and they will make everyone believe you are a french pastry chef from the realms of Ladurée! - K
