It’s almost the weekend… treat yo-self!

Everyone, I have done it again. These little pillows of delight will make you fall in love. They are soft, fluffy, flavourful, sweet, and full of lemony goodness. Top with some fresh nectarines, blueberries, and honey? That’s winning in my books.

Having treats is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle (really.) I mean, if you cant have any Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes on the weekend…. what is even the POINT?? So make sure you are indulging every once and a while, it keeps things in balance. 80/20 people!

If you guys have seen my other pancake recipes, you already know I am a huge cheater. Or, said more eloquently, I like to take a simple recipe and elevate it with a few key ingredients. (AKA make the pre-packaged pancake mix and add some stuff to take them from ordinary to extraordinary. Nobody will know, promise 😉.)

Lemon Poppyseed Pancake Ingreds:

  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon rinds
  • 2 tbsp sugar (I used vanilla bean infused sugar in these and it was BOMB. You can get it in the bulk section at Whole Foods.)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 cup packaged pancake mix, today I used this kind


  • Organic honey
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Nectarines

Hereeee we go!

Step 1: Combine your lemon juice, lemon rinds, sugar, and vanilla in a small bowl. 

Step 2: Follow the directions on your pancake mix package, and mix together all the ingredients they require. It;s usually just milk and a few drops of oil (I like to use coconut milk and oil.) Once the pancake base is all ready to go add the prepared lemon mixture and poppy seeds. **Make sure to not “over-mix” your pancake batter. If there are a few chunks that is okay!**

Step 3: Heat up your frying pan to medium heat. Melt some coconut oil in the pan, and use a ladel to measure out equal portions of pancakes. 

Step 4: When the pancake is cooking, you will know it is ready to be flipped when it starts to bubble in the middle. Once this happens, flip away! And let cook for a few minutes on the other side.

That’s it! Such a delicious way to start your weekend. Not to mention these pancakes are an easy way to seem impressive in the kitchen without really doing much 😜

What do you think?! Will you be trying out my Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes this weekend?

Dress: Aritzia

Oh yes yes yes. I am all about dresses in the summertime. They are the perfect solution to not sweating to death (seriously though.) Wearing jeans in the summer heat is literally my definition of a living hell haha. Your legs feel like they are encased in two sausage-like incubators that are progressively getting hotter and hotter, with the end goal of baking you from the inside out. No fun at all. Anyways, you get my point. Dresses are the best way to go to fight the summer heat and look damn cute while doing it. 😉

This past weekend I spent my time hanging out in Austin, Texas. Can you tell it was humid by the size of my hair? It was almost as bad as when I was in the Philippines over Christmas this year. My hair was mostly contained in these photos, but the second we stepped outside to go for dinner I looked like Monica from friends when they went on vacation (<– click that link you won’t regret it 😂)

What do you guys think of this little dress? How do you beat the summer heat? Comment below ❤️
