forty days

Forty days without shopping!  Whew.  No trips to the new H&M.  No trips to the new American Apparel.  And worst of all... no trips to my favourite store, the F21 online shop.  Now that Easter's past and Lent is over, I think it's time for a little retail therapy!

Speaking of Easter, what were you guys up to?  We took advantage of the beautiful weather that we've been getting these past few days.  I organized an Easter egg hunt, had a small-ish picnic brunch with some friends (featuring crepes, red velvet and vanilla cupcakes, and some of the best homemade Skor bars I've ever tasted!) and enjoyed a delicious duck dinner with my family.  Overall, a lovely way to usher in the spring.

Fresh berries & crepes ♥
Caught red handed - our guest of honour was the lovely Mr. Squirrel, who made off with an Easter egg! 
Mmm.  Must. Have. Desserts.
Banana Mousse Cake with White Chocolate Genoise.  I don't understand the cake decorator's obsession with gooseberries?  They don't taste very good...
Ahhhh!  The strawberries are leaking!

Happy Easter - I hope each and everyone one of you had a wonderful weekend!
