Tomato Bruschetta

So after a trip to Italy, I was inspired to make my own tomato bruschetta. It looked relatively straight forward and after Google-ing some recipes online, I created my own (as I didn't have any basil at home).

Here is what I used: 
Makes 2 pieces
1 hot house tomato
Small piece of garlic (minced/mashed)
Fresh or dried parsley and thyme (as much as you desire)
2 pieces of light rye
Olive Oil

How to make it: 
1. Chop your tomato into small pieces
2. Using a garlic press, mash up your garlic
3. Combine tomatoes, garlic, parsley and thyme together
4. Add a sprinkle of salt
5. Toast your two pieces of rye
6. Lightly butter
7. Spoon tomato mixture on bread
8. Drizzle small amount of olive oil over toast
9. Enjoy!

Europe Haul!

So if you red some of my previous posts, you would of figured out I was in Europe. I traveled to Paris, London, Venice, Milan, Florence, Pisa, and Rome. It was absolutely amazing! Shopping was mainly pretty expensive, however I did pick up some stuff! Heres my haul! 

In Paris, I picked up something from Chanel, and some skincare products (I will reveal what I bought at Chanel soon!) Paris had some great deals on skincare products! I bought my usual Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum for 40 euro ($51 Cdn!). Sephora sells the exact same serum for 90$ in Canada! I also picked up some Bioderma moisturizers which are not sold in Canada. 

In London, I bought my favorite Earl Gray tea No.42 from Harrods and the Cath Kidston mug was gifted from my lovely cousin. 

Florence, I found some great deals at Prada which I will reveal in another post as well and the vintage Chanel button necklaces which I have shown in a previous post!    

Hope you liked my haul!!

Vintage Chanel

Yesterday I told you guys I found some unique things in Florence. Here it is!! I am in love with these two pieces!! I found them at this little vintage boutique by the Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Florence. Both necklaces are made from authentic vintage Chanel buttons! I am especially in love with the black one, which has a gradient effect and a patterned CC. I wanted to buy all her pieces, but just didn't have enough money to do so :(! But I will definitely drop by the little boutique next time I'm in Florence. For those who are interested, here is her address: 

Boutique Nadine 
Lungarno Acciaiuoli 22r 
50123 Firenze 

She also sells very cute headbands, bracelets and earrings all made from vintage Chanel and YSL buttons.

Hi! Sorry, I haven't posted anything for a really long time as I have been working and travelling a lot. Currently in Florence, Italy, where I'm burning in the sun! I am definitely going to turn "bun bun" when I get home. 

Did some shopping at the outlet and around town. Found some good deals and very unique pieces that I will share soon!! 

Cheers :)!
