I hope you all have exciting plans for the weekend- we are on our way to sunny Florida for some family time 🙂

Last night I got a chance to catch up with a girlfriend over a peppermint mocha-one of my favourite holiday drinks!

I also purchased Ghirardelli peppermint bark- another favourite. Do we see the trend here?

silver & gold

Silver or Gold?

I often tend to accessorize or decorate with silver as my metallic. I like the look of it and I think look better on me style-wise. I am often asked if the two can go together and I definitely think they can!

I was asked this question again recently and I was inspired to share this trend with all of you.

Here’s some inspiration for mixing silver & gold

What do you guys think about the all white ornaments? I really like the way these pieces come together with some whites, cremes and sparkles!

I tend to place the ornaments wherever they fit- in no particular way or order. This person had a plan! the diagonal rows of white red and green and awesome!

Today was one of those cool yet sunny days. After a busy day at work it was so nice to come home and have one of my favourite comfort foods. Chili with homemade garlic bread- yum!

Here’s the recipe I used:

Real Simple’s Southwestern Chili with Corn (we love this in our house! this time we used ground turkey and it was delicious)

And here are a few more you may like:

Beef & Beer Chili

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Cincinnati Chili (another favorite!)

Chili Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Chili Mac (I made this a few weeks ago and it was a big hit!)

There are so many great variations to this list of ingredients and they are all so tasty.
