Hi! I’m Aliyyah, an island girl from Trinidad & Tobago.

Currently, I live, work, and play in Toronto, ON, Canada with my husband, Tom (who pops by the blog from time to time to share his Tom’s Picks).

I’m a self-taught baker, born with a creative flare, and have a schooling background in interior design.  My “me” time is often filled with hitting the gym, getting creative in the kitchen, artsy projects, reading, or catching a good movie.

Flour + Paper was created to inspire you, through sharing a little bit of this + a little bit of that from my daily life happenings and all the neat things I discover along the way.

Flour + Paper, at times, uses affiliate links and banner ads. If you click on or make a purchase through one of these links, either via this site or our other social media platforms, flourandpaper.com may receive a commission from your click or purchase.

I will never endorse an idea, person, product, or brand that I don’t wholeheartedly believe in or love. Having said this, being Canadian, I love discovering homegrown brands and artisans of unique handmade goods and products, especially one’s that show a vested interest in the love and care for our planet and make the best ethical choices they can make for the environment.
