How to Look Stylish in a Rain Coat

Happy Monday everyone! These last few days of winter has been definitely full of rain here in Vancouver. Sometimes we don't even want to think what we are going to wear, but just to layer as much we can.
Believe it or not, I'm wearing three layers underneath this coat. Starting with a camisole, a cashmere turtleneck, and a sweater. I hate freezing whenever I'm walking, I always try to be enough covered starting with my ears, hands and toes. 

My point in here, is we need to be creative with what we have inside our wardrobe and pull it out. This look is super casual, cozy and perfect for this season. Finally, I put on my leather leggings and a raincoat from VIPshop, this coat is a must-have as it is water resistant plus the navy color is one of my absolute faves!

Wish you all a great week!

An Afternoon in Dowtown Vancouver

These winter days have been definitely my favorite, those who live in Vancouver may know that having sun in here is almost a miracle! during this kind of days and specially in this season I love walking around the city with my friends and definitely grabbing coffee and pastries. The good thing being in Downtown is getting to know all the amazing coffee shops and bakeries nearby, I certainly don't have one favorite place to go because I enjoy meeting always new places and tasting new things, Yaletown and Gastown are great locations for plans like these.
Lastly, we went to the new Prada pop up store at Holt Renfrew, if you are in Vancouver you definitely must go and check this out. This is such a fun plan to do with those friends who love fashion!

Thanks for reading.

Baking Madeleines for Valentine's Day

These are the cutest madeleines made from home, I bought the pan from the grocery store. This is such a great recipe, fun to cook and incredibly easy! 

These little cakes are perfect for hosting a brunch, as an entry, dessert or as snack, they are simply 
so g o o d !

What I simply did, was:
 I took -1/4 cup of regular flour
- 1 spoon of Caramel extract
- 1 large egg 
- 1 spoon of Coconut Oil
- Honey or Stevia ( Spoon size is optional )
- 1 little spoon of Baking Powder

I put the eggs, coconut oil, caramel extract and honey on one side and the flour mixed with the baking powder on the other, then I combined both until getting a thick mixture. The rest is just to add the blend to the pan and let it inside the oven for 25 minutes until they are ready! 
This was my breakfast on Sunday and I loved it

Wish you all a great Valentine's Day!
