Whole Foods Fall Recipes


Whole Foods Fall Recipes

Fall is in the air and as much as we've begun to miss the warmer weather we are welcoming our boots and warm knit sweaters with open arms. Here are some fall foods that will help you through this transition.

Butternut squash bisque













Ingredients:

1 Large butternut squash

5 Large carrots,
5 Cloves of garlic,
Big pinch of dried thyme,
Salt & Pepper to taste,
Small pinch of Nutmeg,
Medium pinch of cinnamon,
Couple liters of vegetable stock,

Remember the best base to any soup contains celery, carrots, and onions.

Peel, wash and rough shop all vegetables. Starting with the onions and garlic, sweat in olive oil until translucent, and then add in the rest of the vegetables. Stir in the remaining ingredients, except the stock. Saute until the vegetables are shiney and have just begun to soften. Add stock, bring to a boil, reduce to simmer for 1 hour.

Puree, season and enjoy.

½ bunch fresh thyme
2 apples, chef’s choice, diced and tossed in lemon squeeze.
Splash of Olive Oil

Hottest Makeup Trends for Fall/Winter 2013-14

It's that time of year again where we sadly pack away our summer dresses, cut-off tops and shorts and pull out our warmer clothing-- not that we're complaining.....we love that boot season comes with the cooler weathers. As our clothing changes so does our complexion and makeup trends. We've made it easy for you and have come up with your 2013-14's hottest and trendiest looks for Fall and Winter.


1. The no makeup look

Less is best when it comes to day-to-day office wear and even an afternoon date. To create this look you must find an amazing base foundation for flawless skin. Fill in your brow with a shade darker than your hair to achieve the bold brow look which is so hot this season. Using a shadow makes for a more natural application as pencil can look a bit like magic marker if not applied properly. Add a little hint of peach blush followed by a soft petal stained lip like the model to the left.




2. Wine and Pouty Red Stained Lips

There's nothing sexier and more alluring than a woman in red! Red is the colour for passion and intimacy so this will be your best friend to the holiday party or for your first dinner date with your partner. Use a matching lip liner for stay power and the perfect lip line. Add a gloss to add shine or keep a sultry matte look.







3. Bold Feline Flick

This look is still hot this season! Can be paired with a nude lip or spice it up with a wine coloured stain. Bold is sexy! Get this look with a liquid or gel eyeliner on a nude based eye lid for daytime wear and play it up in the evening with a light golden shadow or sparkle.








4.Smokey Eye
This look is always in! The colours for Fall are bold greens, purples and blues! Turn heads at your next holiday party playing up these colours for a sexy smokey eye paired with a petal lip stain or matte lipstick.

Fun in the Sun at Boots & Hearts

The C&C girls attended the sold out 2013 Boots and Hearts Music Festival in Bowmanville, ON for the August long weekend which headlined amazing acts like Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert. The girls enjoyed a weekend with fellow cowboys and cowgirls decked out in cowboy boots and hats while two-stepping to some of the finest in country music. The weekend was a true country party that included tailgating and two-stepping in the mud to some amazing karaoke contests and Canadian Country showcasing acts… I can’t think of a better way to spend the long weekend!


The Festival started off strong Friday night with amazing performances by Autumn Hill, Dean Brody and headliner Jason Aldean (our favourite performance of the weekend), followed by fireworks and a dance party hosted by KX country FM. It was “My Kinda Party”. Saturday we were up, close and personal with the handsome Chad Brownlee who took the main stage followed by Joe Joe Joe Diffie, The Band Perry, and Rascal Flatts who capped the night off. The crowd was massive and the party took a new level of fun as the camp grounds had finally dried up. Rain or shine the weekend was a hit and had fun by all.  


The crowd got a glimpse of the hottest country singers as they entered and exited the premises some flown in by helicopters or waved from there bus. By Sunday the parking lot party was going stronger than ever that we even invited Miranda Lambert via twitter to join our picnic of fried foods and beer and wine.


 Sunday morning started with a Gospel Brunch with Duck Dynasty followed by memorable performances by Canada's own Jason Blaine, Tate Stevens, Dierks Bentley with headliner Miranda Lambert. Miranda Lambert was the best female act of the weekend. She's so powerful and really knows how to entertain a crowd with her "crazy girl" mentality.  I can guarantee everyone left with a stronger bond and love for country music. Overall it was a memorable weekend and can't wait to hear the lineup for 2014.  We want to send out a big thank you to the volunteers and media crews that organized this amazing event!
