Mix together a love of Halifax, Cape Sable Island, movies, books, Audrey Hepburn, and all things retro, and you've got Jess in a Yellow Dress.

At the Halifax Public Gardens today.
The end of a great week: The Bohemian burger from Relish Gourmet Burgers. Swiss cheese, sliced avocados, citrus cranberry compote, and bacon.
Last night walking past the Courtyard Marriott Hotel on Salter Street.
Audrey Hepburn’s back…in a chocolate commercial. It’s more CGI and body double than true Audrey, but it’s cute and fluffy, and definitely something Audrey would’ve approved of.
Someday I’ll host a fancy grilled cheese party and it’ll be the watershed moment of my adult life.
And the loft/condo I host my fancy grilled cheese party in will be painted in mid-century colours.
If anyone needs me next week, I’ll be at one of these fine restaurants gorging myself during Halifax Burger Week.
One of my favourite cocktails is the Scarlett O’Hara. Another favourite cocktail is the Holly Golightly. Are you detecting the pattern?
Not even a month after this year’s Oscars there’s already buzz about Nicole Kidman’s turn as Princess Grace of Monaco. Not gonna lie, totally excited about this movie.
After reading this blog post from Unlost, I now want to drive along the Pacific Coast Highway and eat at Neptune’s Net.
Anybody want to buy me a plane ticket to North Carolina so I can see this Gone with the Wind exhibit?
The New Girl loft has replaced Monica and Rachel’s apartment as my dream apartment.
I’m in love with all these modern Titanic-inspired outfits.
Dad treated me to macarons from Le French Fix during his weekend visit. Delicieux!
Black currant, passion fruit, and rose. The rose was a specialty flavour for Valentine’s Day, and is such a unique and delicious taste.

The things you notice when you look up.
Happy Halloween from Jess Spinelli!
A plate full of delicious delicious macarons from Le French Fix yesterday afternoon. For my money, these are the best macarons I’ve tried in Halifax.
From the selection above (clockwise from top: vanilla tea, chocolate espresso, pistachio, mango, raspberry), my favourites were the raspberry and chocolate espresso macarons.
Goodbye September. You were full of sunset and night time walks, moviesl, food, and fun.
A slice of my mother’s visit (supper at Relish Gourmet Burgers — easily the most filling, and the most unique offerings of, burgers in Halifax).
