{Playing with Food} Domo-Kun Toast

{Playing with Food} Domo Kun Toast

For those who do not know, Domo-Kun is a mascot of Japan's public broadcaster NHK, usually shown in a short stop-motion animation. This cute little guy is a small brown open-mouthed monster who lives with a wise old rabbit underground. He also really likes TV.

Every morning I look at this bread, it reminds me of Domo-Kun so I just have to bring it to life.

{Outfit of the Day} Stripes and Peplum

{Outfit of the Day} Stripes and Peplum
I seriously have a love for stripes, whether they are vertical, horizontal or diagonal. However, I'm also aware that a lot of people share the same affection as me so the pattern becomes quite common on apparel. I adore this peplum strip pencil skirt. The tiered peplum extends the pattern in an irregular way which makes the piece far more interesting. I found out I like subtle design change that makes a plain piece unique, such as the ruffled sleeves on my top, the cute bows on my shoes, the side zippers on my clutch and the asymmetrical design of the necklace.

Gimmicky Food for the Win! {TO Food Fest}

{Liquid nitrogen fresh berries ice cream by Ice Volcano Ice Cream - $5}
I came back again for more great eats after my first visit at the TO Food Fest last year. Like previous years, the event brings together aspiring chefs, local hidden gems and top reviewed restaurants in Toronto. Just when I thought this year's is going to excel last year's to bring in a more diverse culinary experience, the high level of creativity is what attracts the crowd and excites my taste buds.

Here is a list of the food I've tried at the TO Food Fest this summer.

Location: 5183 Sheppard Avenue East, Scarborough, ON M1B 5Z5, Canada

{Outfit of the Day} for the Blue Jays game

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of baseball and I don't really follow the sport or our team as closely as my boyfriend. But, when he decided to bring me to the game one day, I decided I'd show some support in my own way. Go Blue Jays Go!

Forever After Book Cookies

I was delighted to take part in making some cookies for a bachelorette party held at Ben Mcnally Books store recently. The entire party was based on the notion that the bride-to-be loves reading books on her leisure time. So I made the cookies around the theme as party favours. The design was an open book with the initials of the couple and a story telling-esque phrase "forever after". The sugar cookie acts as the binding of a book, whereas the white fondant on top resembles the pages (duh). Originally, I wanted the cookie to read, "happily ever after" as how classic fairy tale stories usually puts it, but the words are too long to fit nicely in one line across the two pages so I had to settle for a shortened version. Still works, I think.
