Don't Call It A Comeback (I been here for years)


Hey guys! A quick post to check in on my rather neglected old blog to say "what's up?"

I've had the best of intentions about updating here with recipes and outfits and stories, but it just hasn't happened. I may be back at some point, but these days I've been spending more and more time over at Instagram and at my photography blog on my professional website Tracey Nolan Studios.

My hope is that I may start posting some of the content you're used to seeing here in those two places, so I hope you make the leap and hang with me there once in a while. I'm not ready to pull the plug on this old girl just yet, but for now let's all just assume things will remain pretty sleepy in these parts.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lots of love,
Tracey xo

Recipe: Roasted Sweet Potatoes


🍠 Here's what happened to these bad boys:

They were tossed (skin on!) in olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and smoked paprika and then roasted in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes (and turned halfway through).

They were a revelation. Why? Two reasons. Leaving the skin on made them chewy in a way that peeling them never has. Seasoning them with an eye to the savory side of things (rather than with cinnamon and nutmeg) just sent them over the top. Good grief. Try it, you'll be glad you did.

It's for real this time.


It's currently 19 degrees celsius and sunny in the 6ix. Spring is here! There was a while there I didn't think it would happen at all. Like we'd wake up one day in August, have a really hot week and then it would snow again on Labour Day. The way things have been going, and considering how dependant my mood is on the weather this was, in my mind, a legit concern.

I kind of feel like I'm emerging from a long hibernation, singing What'd I miss? Which is silly because it's been a busy few months. There was a a trip to Nola, a new work contract that's kept me super busy, a memorable evening with one of my favourite musicians ever and a CD release party for Lenny Jumps In

Even after all that, Spring is giving me new life...the Raptors are in the Eastern Conference Finals, I'm prepping to plant my vegetable garden and I finally started using a foundation brush. Things are looking UP, y'all.

This weekend is Victoria Day in Canada. I'm going to celebrate Queen Vee's birthday by sharing some of my favourite quotes of hers about babies. 

Girlfriend had some OPINIONS on babies, y'all.

"I don't dislike babies, though I think very young ones rather disgusting."
"Being pregnant is an occupational hazard of being a wife."
"An ugly baby is a very nasty object - and the prettiest is frightful.

She's OVER it.  Over. It.

Hope y'all enjoy the long weekend and the glorious weather with as many or as few babies as suits you by your side. I'm taking mine to the beach to do some digging in the sand and to Starbucks where she can smear a cake pop all over her adorable face.

I can't wait. xo

Is that even a word?


Hey guys! I've got a lot of fun stuff I'm dying to talk about here on the blog (so many recipes especially!) but the reality is I'm just too busy at the moment with work and various other things to give this old girl the attention she deserves. I hope to be back from my self-imposed blog sabbatical (blogbbatical?) once late Spring hits. Just in time for warm weather recipes, warm weather fashion and fun things to do around Toronto in the, you guessed it, warm weather. Stay tuned! In the meantime, don't forget that I'm all over social media. Let's connect on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Love you, mean it!
