Green is a fabulous colour for everyone to wear.  I love all types of green (army, hunter, emerald, teal, mint), you name it.  I love pairing green with neutrals such as cream, black, or beige.  It’s the colour of harmony and peace, something we need more of in this world.

Lobster Salad

photo-2 photo-3 photo-4

My oldest son, Jeremy, requested me to make his favourite lobster salad.  The first time I made this salad was two years ago.  I thought it was pretty average but Jeremy loved it.  Either the salad was spectacular or he’s a lobsterholic.

Although I love Ina’s recipes, I’m not too crazy about this one.  BUT this time around, it wasn’t too bad.  I love the tart flavour which is then balanced by the sweetness of the lobster and corns.  Everything is worth a second chance, right?

If you don’t have lobsters, you can substitute it with crabs or prawns.  I love the vibrant texture and creamy taste.  It was super easy to throw together; however, it took a few hours to chill.  This is a satisfying dish that’s perfect for the summer.

I love knitting and crocheting but I’ve to say I love knitting more.  My mom taught me how to knit when I was a little girl and I love it!  I used to knit scarves for fun, no sweaters for me.

I also love crocheting.  I always wanted a crochet dress in my wardrobe but it’s challenging to find a decent one.  Although this dress is from Forever 21, it look a lot more expensive.  The Art Deco inspired pattern and gold glimmer makes it look so much prettier.  It came with a white slip but I feel it didn’t complement the dress.  I ended up pairing it with a nude slip which looks so much better.

I love it when my photographer (aka my son) is willing to accompany me to a nice location for a photoshoot.  We decided to go to English Bay since it’s one of my favourite spots in Vancouver.

English Bay is beautiful.  There are tons of restaurants, coffee shops and bars.  It’s a great place for a stroll, watch the sunset and listen to the waves.  In the summer, English Bay is the host to the Celebration of Light (a fireworks competition) which is something that you can’t miss.  I’m so blessed to live in a city surrounded by beautiful scenery.

I have always love cherry prints.  They are so cute and whimsical.  This dress is the epitome of a classic cherry print dress with a twist.  I plan on rocking this retro chic dress all summer long.  Have a fantastic weekend!
