Savoury Bites and Flights Tour with Crush on Niagara Wine Tours!

One thing I love to do in the Summer, and Fall is head to Niagara-on-the-lake for a wine tour. My husband, and I love wine, so it makes a perfect date day! Last year for our anniversary, we booked a tour with Crush on Niagara Wine Tours and did the Breaking Bread and Building Brix Tour in Niagara-on- the-lake in the summer. You can read the post, here. It was a full day, and we loved it so much!

This year we wanted to try something different, so we booked a wine tour in the Fall with some friends in the Bench, which was an area in Niagara that we have never been before. This tour was called Savoury Bites & Flights which was 1/2 day, and consisted of 5 stops in total- 4 winery visits, and a Cheese company.

First up was Flat Rock Cellars. They had one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen at a winery. You walked in, and straight ahead was a gorgeous view of Lake Ontario, and a balcony overlooking their vineyard! While sipping on wine and enjoying that view, we moved on inside and got a tour of their green geo thermal facility.

Next we stopped at Upper Canada Cheese Company. Here we got to sample a variety of cheese including an artisan cheese made from a herd of prized “Guernsey” cows.

At Di Profio Wines, we got to sit out back under a gazebo enjoying the view of their vineyard, and snacking on a couple of charcutiere boards they provided. They gave us a little history on the winery, while we tasted a few of their delicious wines.

From there the next winery we visited was Back 10 Cellars. Here we got to sample 4 of their wines- some red, and some white.

Finally our last stop of the day was Vineland Estate Winery. The grounds of this winery were so beautiful. They had a great selection of wines to sample. We also learned they have a restaurant, and a bed and breakfast on site which we will definitely take advantage of next time around.

It was such a great tour. I couldn’t believe how beautiful, and quiet the Bench area was. Way less touristy!

The tours are also in small groups as well. Nothings too big. They also offer complementary pick up at their central pick up locations.

I’d have to say the best combo for Fall in my opinion, is a skirt with over the knee boots. I just love that look so much. I actually bought 3 skirts from Forever 21 the other day, and this was one of them. I love the checkered print- especially in those colours. I also love the buttons on the front! I have a few pairs of over the knee boots, and this skirt will actually go with all of them. So, I am going to get a lot of use out of it.

My over the knee boots are a taupe colour, and have a block heel on them so they are very comfortable to walk in. I paired it with a cream top, and my round straw bag. Such a cute look for Fall!

This week has been a busy one, and is going to get busier for me. I have a ton of work to do, two events I need to attend to, and I leave for NYC on Friday.  I also need to head to the mall at some point to pick up a few last minute things, and pack! Send Help! Happy hump-day!

Packing up for a getaway using my new Tracker Expedition Luggage!

If there is one thing I love to do, it’s travel. It doesn’t even have to be by plane, I am even up for a road trip if it means we are heading somewhere fun, and exciting. I try to book 1-2 family trips per year, 1 girls only getaway, and of course a couple of romantic staycations with my husband.

Next year we already have 2 family trips planned, and in a couple of weeks I am heading on my annual trip to NYC for a fun girls trip. See, I’m always on the go. lol

Just recently my husband and I had a little staycation in Niagara for the weekend, after a wine tour we did.  I was so excited to take one of my new luggage pieces from Bentley with me!

Bentley Tracker Expedition Softside Luggage set review on Livin' Life with Style

 

I got this beautiful 4 piece luggage set from Bentley, and I absolutely love it! This set is called the Tracker Expedition II, and it comes in 4 colours including this purple colour that I picked out. You buy all the pieces separately to make the complete set. There is a large 28” luggage, a medium 24” luggage, the carrying luggage is 20” and there is a Duffel bag as well.

Bentley Tracker Expedition Softside Luggage set review on Livin' Life with Style
My old luggage was so heavy. What I love about these pieces is that they are so light weight! The large size luggage only weighs 7lbs! They are all on wheels, and have retractable handles so you can easily move them around. They also have 2 front zipper pockets on them for extra storage.

Inside has a ton of storage as well. It has shoe pockets (I actually used one for my curling iron), an interior mesh pocket with a zipper which is where I keep all undergarments, and a large section for all my clothes and toiletries. I always put all my toiletries in a toiletry bag, and all my makeup in my makeup bag. I like to keep those both separate. Bentley has a great selection of Toiletry Bags if you are on the hunt for one.
To keep everything all tight, and secure, I always use the compression straps. Whenever I get to my destination, and I open up my luggage, everything is still in place because of those straps, so I always make sure I use them.

Creating a elegant table for Thanksgiving Dinner

I am so excited for Thanksgiving this weekend! Not just because of the turkey dinner, and pumpkin pie, but because I will be hosting Thanksgiving dinner for the first time in our home. Usually my mom hosts all the holidays for our family, but this year I offered to do it. I thought it would be nice to give her a break from all the prepping, cooking, and cleanup for once, so she can relax and enjoy the company more.

With Thanksgiving less than a week away, I wanted to create the perfect table for my family to admire. So, I headed to Kitchen Stuff Plus to pick out everything!

Walking into Kitchen Stuff Plus, and seeing all the variety they had to choose from, I knew I wasn’t going to have any trouble picking up what I needed for my table.

To dress up my table, I got this beautiful table runner in the colour linen. I also found matching napkins that I picked up as well. To add a little glitz, I found these pretty gold beaded round placemats, and matching napkin rings for the napkins. I love how the gold makes the white plates pop! The placemats, and napkin rings also come in a silver, and pewter colour.

The very first thing that caught my eye when I walked in the store was this Tuscana Fluted Bakeware. I am going to get so much use out of these! They can go straight from the oven to the table. Perfect for lasagna, chicken and potatoes, or apple pie. The list goes on, there are so many things you can bake with them.  They are also microwave, and dishwasher safe as well.

I picked up 2 sizes for my table. The large white rectangle, and the large white square one. They have other sizes and colours you can choose from if you prefer smaller ones, or in another colour.

These A La Carte white diamond plates are hands down my favourite thing I purchased for my table. They are so gorgeous! I used 2 sizes- the dinner plate, and the side plate. I am actually going to go back and buy a few more, so I have 8 of each. I love that they are very simple, yet stylish, and perfect for everyday use. I have been looking for the perfect white plate for a while now, because the set I have is very dated. I am so glad I found these!

To go with the plates that have the Diamond cut design around the edges, I found these pretty glasses that have a triangle design on them. The triangles are back to back, which create a diamond pattern which match the plates nicely.  These glasses come in a set of 6, and would make any table look elegant.

Finally to complete my table setting,  I wanted to add some decor to the table. I found these glass stem candleholders, which made the perfect centerpiece.  They come as a set of three, but I only used two. They give the table some height, and will add great ambiance in the evening, once the candles are lit.

I hope you liked how I am going to set up my table for Thanksgiving this weekend. For more information on any of the products I have used, visit Kitchen Stuff Plus website, here.

I took the summer off from working out, so I could spend more time with the kids while they were home. Now that they are back in school, I have started getting back into my regular fitness routine, and it feels great! I have to workout in the mornings or else I’ll never do it. So, after I drop the kids off to school, I head back home and work out right away. I am re-doing BBG 1.0 again, and already find it challenging since I haven’t worked out in so long. If you guys want a blog post on what BBG is all about, and my fitness journey so far, let me know and I can do one!

I love this Adidas tank so much. It’s nice and light, and I love to layer it with a black sports bra. These Zella crop leggings are my new favourite. They are high waisted, and have a moisture-wicking fabric that keeps me nice and cool during my workouts. They are nice and stretchy, and so comfortable. I think I need to buy another pair in another colour!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember me talking on stories about my new water bottle that I bought on Amazon. It’s a motivational water bottle, with time markers on it to help you keep track of how much water you’re drinking. I have been using it for about a month now, and I can’t believe how much more water I am drinking because of it. It’s awesome, and I totally recommend getting one!
