Suzy Homemaker

19.7.10

This past weekend was declared a weekend for lazing around the house. I baked, cooked, cleaned and then baked some more. I had to stop myself when I realized the fridge was stock full of food that could possibly go to waste. And with just my sister and I there to eat the food, I was on the road to creating a nuisance. I love food. I love cooking and baking. I love watching cooking shows. As a matter of  fact, I think the shenanigans began while I was watching the show Come Dine With Me. If you haven't seen it yet, I dare you to watch just one episode. It will have you laughing out loud while you make plans for your next dinner party, or perhaps head to your kitchen to perform some culinary experiments. Dave Lamb (he does the commentary) is so perfect for the show; I find him so effortlessly witty.

 shirt dress: zara; shoes: miz mooz; socks: british airways; scarf: vintage; watch: tommy hilfiger; necklace: h&m

I was able to take a break from playing Miss Suzy Homemaker long enough to head to the cafe to read, and then to church yesterday evening. If you live in the Toronto area and need a break from Starbucks, Second Cup or Timmies, then I would highly recommend the Dark Horse Espresso bar. There's a location on Spadina/Queen, and it has the nicest vibe. The perfect little place to read a book while sipping on some iced chai.
I thought this shirt dress was perfect to hide the bulging belly after all the eating I did over the weekend. I'll be sure to share some of the recipes with you soon.

Hope your weekend was more eventful than mine. What did you get up to?!

Bisous,
Abs

Your shoes are adorable. They look really good with the dress... Maybe I should invest in a shirt like that for some of my gastronomical adventures!

Hahah what a cute outfit! I am amazed at how wonderful the shoes look against the socks. <3 The scarf in your hair is a nice touch. :]

Yay for cooking. Love your shirt dress. So pretty.

I'll definitely check that place out. Is it on Spadina though? And the place has huge windows? I think I've seen it.

Let me guess, you're at Sid Smith? I hate that building with a passion.

Ps. oooo Yay go VIC! What year are you in? I'm going into second.

such a cute dress :))
i love your blog!

Abi-Anne said...

Merci, merci, merci! :)

@Jenni: I would highly recommend this dress. No one has to know what you do in the comfort of your own home ;)

@sU: yeah, they're kitten heels. So comfy to walk in.

@rebecca: I agree "nearly almost worth it". Feels good when, until you realize you can barely move.

@Ruta: I think you might have seen it too. It is exactly as you described. Right on Spadina, a little north of Queen.
And yes, I'm at Sid Smith. Spot on. Why do you hate it so? How's your experience so far? I'll be going into my final year :)

@jemina: oh, please move next door to me. I'll be sure to bring out my best stuff ;)

@style-haus: I absolutely agree. They help me relax. Maybe it's just looking at all that food. Takes your mind away from everything else.

@My Republic of Fashion: woot! I'm not alone in this. It's possibly one of my favourite shows on television :)

@Audrey Allure: now, that's the spirit! some healthy pigging out once in a while does the body/mind/soul good.

@Lisa Lisa Lisa: a woman after my heart. Maybe I'll challenge you to a cook off one of these days? The only problem? How shall we judge?

@Sarah: isn't he just?!

Constance said...

Very pretty!

Ashley said...

Yes! This is so great. It's like the perfect oversized men's shirt...and I LOVE how you paired it with socks and heels (one of my most favorite combinations).

I love baking too and did a lot of it this weekend...hate the clean-up, though.

@Ashley: I agree cooking is fun, but that's out the door when you realize you've used up every single cooking utensil in your kitchen and have to clean it up.

@veronicca: Thank you :)

@Morning Cloak: I made some lasagna, fried rice, summer fruit tart and cookies.

Martha said...
