Love & Olive Oil is the blog of Lindsay and Taylor, a regular couple crazy in love with cooking. They offer their readers recipe ideas and gorgeous eye feasts – stunning pictures.
To add to that, they have 2 small businesses to run, just launched a book called Breakfast for Dinner, and started challenging themselves in the cooking department as well (it’s always easy to stay in one’s comfort zone, ain’t it?). Busy couple!
SO MUCH to browse, go crazy! :P
Well, since it’s my bday, I’m treating myself with this blog post.
But first, I’m gonna have to go all out with a secret revelation: I’m a manicure/nailpolish/nailart freak. Ok, it’s said. lol!
My favorite blog on the subject is called Pshiiit! The talented lady behind it is in France (and so, yes, the blog is written in French (but pictures say a thousand… ideas)). I’m always amazed at her end results, sometimes simple, sometimes crazy complex!
Always great to see what a new color looks like before actually buying it, as well as idea as to how use it. Also very practical, a few animated-gifs tutorials!
Enjoy, ladies! :)
Bonus below: My Bday nails today! Had fun! :D
Sometimes the most perfect blog names are those who just tell it straight to your face. Just like I am a Food Blog, Sophie’s outlet for her love of food and photography, over in Vancouver.
A bold and crisp look, beautiful pictures and detailed recipes. You basically can’t ask for more. That is, after you realize you can’t just lick your screen to get a taste. :P

I love this blog called Spoon Fork Bacon. For it’s photographs (Woah! Gorgeous!) and also for the occasional animated gif’s, too.
And for the recipes of course. Altho I haven’t tried anything yet, all in all, most seem simple enough to be attainable by most people. Recipes are diversified, with a little bit of everything from appetizers to deserts.
And of course, a couple of recipes with bacon, like Salted Caramel and Candied Bacon Ice Cream. Oh yeah.
Nom nom nommmmm! :P
Wood and Faulk offers high quality craftsmanship items (bags, belts, camera straps) made of mainly leather, but also sturdy cotton canvas fabrics. I bet these bags will outlast yearsss of heavy duty use!
You should also take some time to check out Matt‘s journal, where he explores other designs (including some tutorials, nice!), and other materials, like wood (*faint*). Oh, and fashion purchases (shoes, anyone?) as well as everyday subjects (kubb? or upholstery?).
All of his pictures are always insanely beautiful, too.
Can I marry him?
Ok ok, ’nuff said. lol :)
My friend Paule suggested that I look at this beet cake video recipe by Tiger In A Jar that she found on Bess’ blog yesterday. What a beauty!!
Turns out Matt and Julie made plenty of other great little motion pieces (some including stop motion) for everyone to look at on their Vimeo! Various subjects are treated, all visual gems, if you ask me! :)
Go snoop around their blog (you’ll also find awesome photography there!), you wont regret it!!

Since I’m on the subject of videos (a subject I don’t visit often, huh?), my friend Christine Chevarie is working on a little video on my work right about now!
She came to film last Friday (above, featuring my oh-so-chill cat, Kobe), and I CAN’T WAIT to see the results! Her boyfriend and herself even created a little tune, sort of in the Angus and Julia Stone style, for it! Just so awesome! I’ll let you know here of course when it’s ready!
Meanwhile, check out this little video (it’s in French, but worth it even if you don’t understand!) she made on canning tomatoes (below). Half of these people are my friends, and the little guy, Hubert, is the child of my oldest friend Emilie, and he apparently loves me. He offers me his firefighter trucks (his favorites) every time I see him. If that isn’t love, I dunno what is. Yep. hehe :)
I wanted to let you know that I’ve started a new blog called icon vault. It’s about images! Inspiration quick & easy, short & sweet!
Of course, this blog will remain and when I feel like writing on my new discoveries instead of just showing them, I’ll come straight here! :)
Now, head on over and follow it!! :P
