VINTA's Fall Party

Back in October, VINTA (my mom's baking and event design company) held a promotional autumnal event at a local neighbourhood cafe in Glyfada. My mom decorated the cart in true autumnal style (leaves, pumpkin, burlap... You get the picture.) and served up homemade chocolate chip cookies, brownies, fudge, warm apple cider and three flavours of my own homemade coffee syrups.

We had so much fun preparing for this event and I loved creating something from scratch with my own two hands. The coffee syrup flavours I chose were caramel, chocolate mint and gingerbread. My inspiration, of course, came from Starbucks' own holiday flavours. More on the coffee syrups later.

I had so much fun taking pictures of the event. I even made a promo video which you can see here.

A few of my favourite things

Movies & TV: Someone please stop the trend for senseless remakes of classic 80s movies. They're fine just as they are!

Music: I hear this FUN. song every time an ad for The New Normal comes up on FOXlife and I've kind of become addicted to it.

Books: Game of Thrones pop-up book. Enough said.

Food: My cousin is doing a sugar detox, taking her cues from Sarah Wilson's 'I Quit Sugar' book and website. I'd be interested to try this; I just need to mentally and psychologically prepare myself for a life without dessert.

Travel: Travel Prep Pointers from the beautiful Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere

Blog: As soon as I'm done with being pregnant I'm SO starting the monthly fitness challenges on You can follow Cassey on Instagram too for an added jolt of inspiration.

Etsy: One of the most original iPhone cases I've ever seen. Want.

Brain Food: Things all noughties teenagers will remember. This list is very much geared towards teenagers who grew up in the UK.

Science & Tech: I just downloaded A Beautiful Mess' Lightroom Presets and I'm so thrilled with the way they look! I used the Lillian preset for our Easter pics which you can see here.

Have a wonderful week!
