My March Favourites!

🍀 Happy March! 🍀 It’s been a very busy and tiring month for me with work, so I haven’t been able to blog much, unfortunately! But in the spirit of the month, I’m feeling incredibly lucky to be healthy and happy. 🙂 I wanted to share some of my favourite ~lucky~ things from March with you all:

TV Shows: Kim’s Convenience (CBC – now on Netflix), which is a hilarious and heartwarming show about a Korean family in Toronto who runs a convenience store. It takes a couple of episodes to get into, but you’ll fall head over heels for them. Ok see you!!

And I’m binging Nailed It! (Netflix) as we speak – as a brand new season of the best worst baking show just dropped!! Okay, not such a filled-with-luck kind of show.

Food: I’ve been enjoying these Jumbo Veggie Dogs (vegan) from Yves Veggie Cuisine! They taste just like the real thing according to my carnivore Dad and Brother.

Also discovered a brand new world thanks to Torani Coffee Syrups! They come in dozens of delicious flavours – my favourites so far being French Vanilla, Salted Caramel, and especially for this month: Irish Cream! I like to add them to my ice coffee, but work on hot coffee, ice cream, whatever! Hard to go back to “plain” coffee now!

March 14th was Pi Day! Sadly, made no pie (because I forgot to buy the ingredients :’)) Sugar, the margarine aficionado, was displeased.

Video Games: Animal Crossing, again! It’s the ONE YEAR anniversary of Animal Crossing New Horizons. I will soon share an in-depth catchup of my island!

Happy 1st Birthday, Cupcake Island!!

Websites: MyHeritage. I’ve been on a genealogy kick lately, which started with my 23andMe results in January. I have been building out my family tree and have learned so much about where my family has actually come from. You realize that these people aren’t just names and old years, but your family. I didn’t realize that my Dad’s side of the family (mostly) immigrated from Ireland to Canada in the 19th century – so this St. Patrick’s Day has even more meaning now.

Purchases: I’ve been redecorating my house a bit this year. I’m moving towards more of a shabby chic look, rather than the bright neons it’s been for many years!

I’ve been on the hunt for a nice floral area rug for my living room, and hit the jackpot with this beauty from Nourison (available on Amazon for $182 CAD)! I haven’t had a chance to take a picture of it in my living room yet as there is stuff everywhere (*blush*!) But the quality is surprisingly plush and lovely for the price tag.

Lots of changes around here and it’s getting bright and happy inside! Hope to share soon.

Love and luck, Erika and Sugar!! 🍀

♡ My February Favourites! ♡

Hope you have all enjoyed a super sweet February filled with floating hearts, delicious candies, and lots of love for yourself! Here were some of my favourite things over the past 28 lovely days.

TV Shows: The Office (US) – finally gave this one a go after apparently my coworkers have been relentlessly quoting this for years and I’ve been clueless! It looks dry and muted and WAY too much like my real office so maybe that’s what’s been keeping me away! It’s a fake docu-comedy like Parks & Rec, which is one of my favourites – and it’s a surprisingly nice escape for a show about well… office life!

Music: I’ve been on an indie-pop kick again and have been getting back into some of my favourite bands from 2013-ish like CHVRCHES, Bastille, Hurts, and Florence + the Machine… One of my current on repeats:

Food: Still eating vegan and LOVING IT! I would love to start being even more conscious about what I’m eating and make sure it’s sustainable and cruelty-free. My favourite go-to meals lately are this super Saucy Ramen Noodle recipe and vegan pizza – which uses soy cheese.

Video Games: Pokemon Shield ~ it honestly took me a really long time to get used to the play style and how linear the storyline is. But after a year, I’ve fallen in LOVE with it! It has amazing graphics (I know other people would beg to differ), and plays really well on the Switch’s tv features.

Websites: I have been spending a lot of this brutally cold winter on Duolingo learning German and Neopets Classic!

Purchases: Funko has released retro Barbie Funko Pops of three of the most popular Barbie dolls from the 80s. They are way too cute for words! Can’t wait for mine to ship because they will fit right in here at my little pink house!

October Blogging Challenge! Day 16: Link LOVE!

Today it’s time to share my favourite links and internet explorations! I’ve been working from home for seven months now, and I most definitely have not been surfing the web more or anything like that. 😉 I’ve found and refound a bunch of fun web things that I wanted to share.

Duolingo ~ thought I’d give another go at learning Japanese and Duolingo is a great website for language learning! Though honestly, I’ve been procrastinating a bit on my lessons (sorry Mr. Duolingo Owl!) But it’s a great website. I used it many years ago when I was studying German in university and it was very effective, just need the motivation again!

Tuxedo Unmasked ~ This is a Sailor Moon blog with amazing and well-sourced details about the characters and the making of the show. I can fall into a void and read this site for absolute hours at a time and uncover infinite amounts of moon power wisdom!

RoomClip.jp ~ I am absolutely OBSESSED with unique, eclectic, absolutely adorable home decor!! RoomClip is a Japanese website where people share pictures their room decor and it’s a complete dream come true!

Sport Pepper the Kitten on Twitter ~ Sugar and I LOVE the adventures of internet cats! We love following the antics of a little (well rather huge!) kitten named Sport Pepper, who was a stray found at a Chicago hot dog stand. He is the baby brother of the Bitches the Cat crew, a hilarious and politically smart cat family. They are also on Instagram!

PLEASE let me know if you have any sites to share! I LOVE to go on internet adventures and fall into colourful little rabbit holes that I never knew existed!

October Blogging Challenge! Day 5: Favourite Movies

Day 5 of the October Blogging Challenge is all about favourite movies!! I’ll admit that I tend to not be overly adventurous with movie watching, and I would prefer to watch my favourites which I have seen hundreds of times rather than trying to find something new. Favourite movies fill you with great memories and take you back to a good place even when current times aren’t that way.

I tend to lean towards whimsical, fantastical, fun movies with light plots and a splash of humour. Hopefully some of my favourites bring you a bit of nostalgia and happiness like they bring me!

My Neighbor Totoro

Matilda

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Alice in Wonderland

The Goonies

Things I’m LOVING this September!

Pretty sunrises, fawns, Nescafe Rich instant coffee, knitting, watching Superstore on Amazon Prime, the smell of fresh baked bread, wearing cozy sweaters, cuddling with Sugar on chilly nights, the long weekend ahead, pretty face masks, and of course good health!
