The Bite Before Christmas @Bite_Bar
December is less than a month away, which means the holiday season/Christmas are like tomorrow (not really but you get what I mean.) So seeing as it’s already freezing cold like the holiday season, and Christmas is right around the corner; I vote that the holiday season starts now. And what better way to kick off the holiday season than with something sweet and Christmasy!
Nisha, found of Toronto’s premiere bite-sized dessert bar Bite Bar, recently invited us to a tasting preview of the Bite Bar Holiday menu. If you’re a dessert lover like me, you can only imagine how excited I was to get there, and get to tasting ALL of the sweet treats! The menu was mouthwatering, featuring items like Naughty and Nice Bite sized chocolate cookie sandwiches with Bite Bar’s signature raspberry vodka buttercream, Candy Cane Chocolate Cheesecakelettes, Bite Bar’s Cranberry Apple Spiked Cider and more! Our night was made even sweeter as we got to hang out with some of our favourite bloggers; and you know it was only a matter of time before we were laughing, taking selfies, as well as tweeting, instagraming, and Facebooking all the decadence that we were being treated to. It was a deliciously fun night 🙂 Okay enough talking, more pictures. Enjoy!
Some of my favourite things about the Bite Bar preview? I enjoyed all the treats, but I loved loved LOVED the Candy Cane Chocolate Cheesecakelettes, the Bite Bar Cranberry Apple Spiked Cider was the bomb, I absolutely adored the Bite Bar wall, and of course it’s always fun times hanging out with some of my favourite people! Oh I also love that I was able to eat as many different treats as I wanted without feeling full and/or sick, all because of the cute (and tasty) little bite sizes! Bonus!!
A big thank you to Nisha for inviting us and spoiling us rotten with delicious treats and drinks. We had an amazing time as you can see!
@CrabtreeEvelyn Festive Gifts Have Arrived!
I’ve been a huge fan of Crabtree & Evelyn since I can remember. Their luscious bath and shower gels are always on my wish list during the holidays and their gift sets are always at a great price point (meaning there’s no excuse to not gift me during the holidays, haha!).
This upcoming holiday season, Crabtree & Evelyn are unveiling a brand new range of goodies, such as their peppermint-scented holiday soaps (all $5), shaped as Santa, snowmen or beautifully decorated stars. I love them—these are definitely going on my wish list in December!
But my favorite addition to Crabtree & Evelyn’s collection has to be their holiday home fragrances. I’m a bit obsessive when it comes to candles and fragrances so I was over the moon when I received my Gilded Chesnut Home Fragrance in the mail. This new scent combines roasted chestnuts with warm spices, ripe autumn berries and whipper butter with musk and a sweet cream accord.
It’s a soft, cozy and definite Holiday fragrance I’m loving in my apartment this time of year. It’s a paraffin wax blend and the candle comes in two sizes, small ($12.50) and large ($35). The small candle burns for 20 hours and the large (which I have now) burns up to 50 hours. That’s a lot of burn time, but I’m shopping for more because I can’t stop lighting this one!
Crabtree & Evelyn has also carried their Gilded Chestnut scent to fragrance oil, fragrances botanicals, porcelain diffusers, and even a fragrance spray—yes, please!
Stop by your local Crabtree & Evelyn store to pick up some of their seasonal goodies or shop online at crabtree-evelyn.com.
