Glamping.

As summer is slowly winding down, I find myself wanting to go on one more camping adventure… or more accurately, ‘glamping’ adventure. I like to rough it as much as the next person, but don’t you think it would be so fun to stay in one of these tents or yurts?! I would love to stay in a yurt on the Oregon coast, which I believe they have lots of. It just might end up being more of a Fall trip because it looks like they are all booked up for the rest of summer. Oh well, until then…

A Montauk Surf Shack

Tepees on the lawn, vintage lawn chairs and lanterns hanging in the trees?! I am loving the campy feel of this Montauk surf shack.

Gone Camping.

Happy Friday friends! Do you have any exciting weekend plans? I am going camping today and I won’t be back until Tuesday! I am so excited to relax in the great outdoors for 4 whole days with people I love. And it’s going to be HOT! Woo.

This means that Twig Home is closed today. However, if you still feel like shopping, why not grab a cupcake at Tracycakes (Abbotsford or Whiterock) and check out my vintage furniture and accessories while you’re at it?!

 

Camping and Macaroons.

Happy Tuesday friends! How was your weekends? I had an amazing weekend camping with my husband. It was so refreshing being away from technology and people and spending time in our beautiful country, which I often take for granted. We spotted so many wild animals, it was crazy! 3 different bear sightings alone made me a happy girl.

We actually ended up coming home a day early (but still pretended to be gone, hence no blog post yesterday). On Monday we spent the day in Vancouver where I was determined to try a macaroon for the first time! They have been everywhere in the blog world for the past couple of years and I still had yet to try one. I googled until I found a bakery who sold them. Unfortunately, they only sold pre-made mini macaroons (no big ones) – but maybe that was a good thing, as I was able to try many different flavours. They were quite delicious, light, airy and very sweet! But I am told that no macaroons can compare to the famous Laduree ‘Les Macarons’. Until one day when I get to Paris, I suppose I will have to dream. Do any of you know a good local place to get macaroons?
