Make | Benchic’s DIY Chocolate

Benchic_2

I have a friend who makes the best chocolate. Like, you’d have no idea it wasn’t from some crazy chocolatier. (She actually started up her own company but it was too much to deal with in addition to her day job and if it were up to me she’d start it up again. Ahem…Megan!)

But no matter. Because even if you’re not gifted in the chocolates department, you can gift in the chocolates department (see what I did there?).

Benchic

LA’s Benchic Chocolate just launched chocolate-making kits complete with a reusable mould, organic Peruvian cocoa butter, wild California Honey (from near Long Beach), organic Peruvian Lucuma Powder, and the like. They’re not cheap — $79 USD before shipping — but you can’t put a price on chocolate-flavoured fun.

Style | Wear It Well

Global 9

Knitwear is having a moment. And I whole-heartedly endorse that, especially the luxe head-to-toe knitwear worn by the likes of Gigi Hadid.

Global5

So to kick off Wear It Well, a new segment I’m doing with Global Television and Metropolis at Metrotown, I celebrated all things knit.

Global10

What if you’re petite? What if you’re full-figured? What’s on trend? Viewers asked and I answered here.

The work look on the left is from LOFT, the Gigi Hadid-inspired look in the middle is from Roots and the long cardigan and jeans (tough to see in the above shot, I know) are from Bench.

Thanks, Hayley, for the photos!

Pinstagram | Orange You Glad I Didn’t Say Pear?

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver).

juice and tart

Juicy. A thirst-quenching treat from Commodity Juicery + a pear tart.

Walls

Climbing the walls. My little monkey on the world’s coolest climbing wall + adorable wallpaper, which isn’t actually custom wallpaper made of that kid’s art, but the work of Gael Davrinche.

dog pic

Throwback. A print from a campaign I creative directed that hangs in my living room (read more about that campaign here) + a home so full of windows there would be no place to hang art at all.

office

The dream vs. the reality. My office always looks insane when I’m in the middle of a project + an office where everything is — enviably — in its place.

P.S. There are more photos where these came from so follow @KelseyDundon on Instagram.

Hey, baby!

W and E

It’s been busy — and sleepless — around here. But it’s also been really cute and cuddly so I’m not complaining.

Florals

In a cinch. A #tbt to when I wore elastic-waisted pants because I wanted to and not because I had to (vest c/o Patagonia, jacket from Danier, pants from Anthropologie) + a floral dress with a cinched waist.

Paint and art

Artiste. A painter in her studio + a pop art print.

Usher

Yeah! The best wedding-themed card I’ve ever seen (at Front) + electric love.

Bioderma

No-makeup look. My favourite after-segment ritual is taking off my stage makeup (Bioderma is such a drugstore miracle!) + beautiful bottles.

tutu

Come as you are. A Halloween costume made entirely of my kid’s everyday wardrobe + a little one with similar fashion sense.
