One of my favorite things to order when eating out is French Onion Soup. When I used to design restaurants, I was lucky enough to sample new menu items and I became quite the French Onion Soup connoisseur. It wasn’t until this past year that I attempted to make it myself, and it turned out to be so easy.

I have a major thing for homemade canned goods- canning is a great way to celebrate the harvest and savor the seasonal flavors. Most of the cans you see above are items from my Aunty Mary's garden, but my cousin Tori does beets every year and Granny also does some great red pepper jellies. I use most of these in my cooking!

Victoria: Hi Jillian, I am about to move into a one bedroom apartment and am excited to start investing in pieces that I love (vs. carting around hand me down furniture etc). Do you have any suggestions for the first things I should purchase? Any great websites/stores you would recommend that would ship to Canada?Read More

Happy hump day my friends! I’m enjoying a few days of downtime right now and I’m so excited to start the holiday decorating in my new place- I know- already?!
Here’s a handful of wonderful things I’m loving right now:
Travel tip of the week: I love my Travalo Perfume Atomiser- I have three!
Dilemma of the week: So I made a promise to my mom that I wouldn't buy any clothes or shoes until January. Well, I've also been looking high and low for these Hunter boots in my size and what do you know... five minutes after I make the promise I found them!
But, I was thinking... I have a pair of black rubber booties.... what If I just glue buttons on the side? Stay tuned for the results.
Curtains crush: I am attempting to make curtains exactly like this for my new place… photos to come.
Chairs of the week: amazing chevron upholstery!
See anything inspiring? Leave me a comment with your favorite item of the bunch!
