KATRINA VS RECIPES: Pink Goji Sangria!

Patio season is finally upon us and of course that means BBQs! Last summer this sangria was my go-to treat to bring along for an outdoor party. It’s incredibly simple, incredibly delicious and takes less than 15 minutes to make.

KATRINA VS RECIPES: Chai Guarana Oatmeal

Spicy and sweet chai guarana!

Anyone that knows me can vouch that I can talk about tea for-pretty much-EVER! One of the perks of working in a tea shop besides drinking as much as humanly possible throughout the day is being exposed to an endless collection of unique ingredients and flavours.

My co-workers and I started up this little recipe tumblr for all the fun things you can make with tea called The Daily Steep. My first post is a delicious recipe for an energy-boosting breakfast!

What I Wore: Mexico Edition!

Here it is! My very first "What I Wore" post. In an effort to be a little more accountable on what I wear and  how I express myself, I really want to use this as a recurring feature on my blog. At least once a week!

I'll be more prepared in the future, but for now I really wanted to showcase an outfit that I really loved and had so much fun in!

I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Mexico with my boyfriend`s family and friends to celebrate his sister`s wedding. It was one hell of a party! The weather was absolutely perfect and the sky was clear. The ceremony was held on the roof of the resort and the cocktail hour was on the beach. You can safely assume much champagne was involved in these pictures.

An Introduction

If you've found your way to my online journal then I'm sure you would like to know a little more about me!

My name is Katrina, I'm a 25 year old Canadian girl/woman just trying to navigate my way through life.

I'm a part-time psychology student as well as a part-time tea shop asm and aficionado! I love movies, playing with my dogs and singing poorly in the car.

As I'm writing this, I'm really not sure what I'll be posting here! I'm a believer in just seeing what happens. I hope my little online home will grow into something substantial and creative.

"Life has been some combination of fairy-tale coincidence and joie de vivre and shocks of beauty together with some hurtful self-questioning."
