Floral Pants & Puppy Love // I Love Tyler Madison

After being away from home on a road trip to Wisconsin last week, I have been seriously missing my puppy Nova!  One of my favourite parts of working from home as a blogger is that I get to hang out with this fluffy cutie all day long.  Although, he doesn't make it into blog photoshoots very often, I knew I wanted to include him in this post (and not just because I missed his adorable Samoyed smile!).

The gorgeous floral pants I'm wearing come from a wonderful Canadian company called I Love Tyler Madison (it just so happens that Tyler & Madison are the names of the owners' rescue dogs... adorable right?!).  The label is not only cruelty-free, but they also donate a portion of their sales to help animals via the ASPCA and SPCA.  While their spring/summer collection includes plenty of wardrobe basics, I was instantly drawn to the bright florals of their "jardin de fleur" print.  I opted for a pair of pants since it's still quite chilly here in Winnipeg, but ILTM also has shorts & skirts available in this pretty floral fabric that will be perfect for summer!

Oh, and I have wonderful news, the team from ILTM is giving Pretty Little Details readers an exclusive discount code to go on your own mini shopping spree!  Just use the code "JA25" at checkout to get 25% off your entire purchase!

Happy Shopping!

Darling let's Dance // Red Maxi Dress at the Park

I love wearing clothing that has movement!  There is something about a soft chiffon that swirls in the wind that just makes you want to dance.  This dress, is definitely one of those pieces.

The online shop where I found this maxi dress has some seriously sexy dresses. But this one was perfectly classy and the beautiful full skirt drew me in.  I wore it with some simple leather & gold accessories for a casual date night with my husband but it could very easily be accessorized for an upscale evening out.

Cinco de Mayo Dinner Party

It all started with my husband and I wanting to invite some friends over for dinner... except when you are a blogger, you can't handle just hosting a potluck like a normal person. Instead, I wanted to spoil my guests with a four course dinner and I decided on a mexican theme to unite the menu.  Of course, I got a little carried away ended up planning an entire Cinco de Mayo dinner party fiesta complete with mini piƱatas!

Oreo Layer Cake with Chocolate Ganache Drip

Last week, I shared a peek into my dining room, and there just so happened to be a delicious looking Oreo cake sitting on my table.  I promised you guys I would share the recipe, so here it is!

My husband has a huge family and every month we have a birthday celebration for all the the birthdays that fall within that month.  I'm not lying when I say we have attempted to fit 11 names into the "happy birthday" song in the past!  Anyways, I made this Oreo layer cake for our February birthday celebration.  I wish I would have snapped a photo of what the inside of this cake looked like with the layered chocolate and vanilla cakes, but I promise you it was delicious!
