My Dapper Chap

Posted on

Today I’m going to do a quick little post of my dapper man. Today he got all dressed up for his first day out in the field. He decided to wear his new vintage wool vest I got him last weekend. He’s wearing vintage hat, boots, tie and vest, along with Nudie denim jacket, and J.Lindberg pants.
I must say he looks pretty damn good: D

Fish Tacos

Posted on

This week me and my man decided to try a few new recipes.  I decided to share this one with you as we really enjoyed it, and it is nice and healthy. 
We got the recipe from the monthly Alive magazine.

Not the best presentation but they sure tasted good.

Here is the recipe for the tacos. We didnt make the pickled shallots nor did we use cilantro. We used chives instead and we also added some hot and spicy salsa.

GADABOUT

Today was another dreary day outside but I took full advantage of my Saturday.  I started at the gym, then hit up the annual Maple Cottage vintage sale and then headed over to one of my Toronto favorites.  This is truely a magical place for any vintage lover.  Not only does this store have any vintage knickknack you can imagine. It also has clothing from the Edwardian era to the 1970s (some 80’s). Not only do they have all these great things but they are also categorized by waist size (this is very rare) If you havent checked this place out I definitely recommend you do. And when your done shopping you can go across the street for a nice cold beer at Ceili Cottage.
