Absolutely love this info-graphic, simplifying major statistics. Reminds me how lucky I am to live in Canada with access to clean water and food.

I’ll be debuting a Wedding Jewelry Line very soon, just in time for the wedding season! The line will be a little bit different from my regular line, being a little more classic in style. However, there will always be my special twist to some pieces that will cater to alternative brides. Here is a small sneak preview of my line, a pair of classic teardrop pearl earrings.

I’ve been really getting into baking as of late, but have yet to try a cheesecake (which is my favorite dessert!). SO, when I saw this recipe on Pinterest I definitely wanted to try it! I’m going to make these this week or weekend and I’ll let you know how it went. Have any of you tried a cheesecake (or any other cake) in a jar? they would make pretty good christmas gifts!
