Dreaming of (non-dairy) Desserts

Ever since I cut dairy out of my diet, my skin has been SO much better. I went from a face full of painful breakouts to relatively clear skin. But eliminating dairy hasn't been easy...so many things are out of the question now. Going for brunch? I have to make sure they don't add milk to the scrambled eggs. I steer clear of baked goods because they probably have milk/butter in them (no more donuts or pastries or cookies!!!)...the "avoid" list goes on and on!

When it comes to breakfast/lunch/dinner - I can usually find delicious non-dairy alternatives...but the one department I really feel like I'm missing out on is dessert. Yes, I know fruit is "nature's dessert"...but sometimes (often) I want something indulgent. So in today's post I'm sharing my top non-dairy dessert options.

Everything is Coming Up Marigold...

Some colours are trusted friends - these are the safe colours that make you feel happy and confident when you wear them. My trusted colours are white, cream and blush pink. THEN there are the colours that you've always wanted to try - but are not 100% sure that you can pull off...

This beautiful shade of Marigold falls in my "uncertain" category...I always like it on others - but am not sure if it works for me. When Morning Lavender contacted me, asking if I wanted to try out one of their dresses - at first I was going to opt for something like this blush pink beauty - which is firmly in my comfort zone.

Lace Dresses I Love - the Pink Midi

You all KNOW how much I love lace dresses...I can't even count how many outfit posts I've shared wearing them. And guess what - I still have several more to photograph and share - so stay tuned for lace dresses in yellow, white and red.

But let's start my "Lace Dresses I Love" series with this pink midi dress. Here's why I'm obssessed with it...it's a beautiful shade of pink...it has trendy flared sleeves...and it's the perfect length! It's hard to find a dress with the right amount of coverage - I usually have to add a cardigan/jacket or leggings.

Hacking off my Hair!

So I have a confession to make...I kind of hacked off my hair last week!!! I was thinking - wouldn't my hair be so much easier to curl if it was slightly shorter? And when it comes to my hair - I'm very impatient ...as soon as I decide to make a change (cut, colour etc) - I want it done immediately!

Since my hair is cut in layers - I was going to ask my stylist to cut it up to the length of my longest layer. And then the dangerous thinking began...how hard could it be to trim it myself - I'd just use my layers as a guide.

Stepping Into Spring with Marks

I've found the perfect pair of shoes for Spring! They have a classic gladiator/cage design that works well with both jeans and dresses. They're tan - so they complement light-coloured clothing.  And of course - my favourite part - they're VERY comfortable to walk in!

How comfortable are they? Well, it honestly feels like I'm wearing flats. The thicker heel provides stability - while the laced-up design and textured sole ensure that my feet don't slip around inside. I love that I get the height boost of heels without the discomfort!
