Winter Fun in the City

If you haven’t figured it out by my posts, photos and Instagram stories, I’m a sucker for those cozy, comfy, lazy nights in.  But there is a part of me that feels I should take advantage of the cold, discover some of its beauty and maybe even have a little fun! I mean it is…

Wine & Whisky with Wayne

If you know me, you know I love my wine.  I’ve graduated from the days of chugging 2L bottles of zinfandel to appreciating the sipping, smell and swirl of a really good glass. I was recently invited to a VIP experience at The Wayne Gretzky Winery and Distillery in Niagara-on-the-Lake and I couldn’t turn it…

Diner En Blanc 2017

You’ve definitely seen the photos.  Dinner at dusk, long white tables with drinks, food and ornate center pieces, beautiful people dressed in their best, crispiest white attire, twinkling sparklers and dancing under the moonlight. Who wouldn’t want to be one of the lucky ones to be invited to an event like that right?  So, when…

Skating at NPS

Wow. Its been almost 4 months since I last sat down and wrote a post.  I’m going through all the reasons I didn’t make the time and none of them are good enough.  It really makes you appreciate those bloggers and publications that put out content daily.  Its HARD.  I will try to be better….

St. Lawrence Market Summer Series

What do you get when you combine one of the finest food markets in Canada and the culinary creativity of the Food Dudes? You get the first edition of the Summer Series at the St. Lawrence Market.  I had been hearing about this event all over my social feeds and on a few newsletters I…

Movies Under the Stars

This past August long weekend I got a chance to really explore the city like a tourist.  I went to Centre lsland for the first time, rode a bike around the waterfront and FINALLY crossed off something from my Summer bucket list that I’ve been wanting to do forever.  Movies in the park!  And much…

Distillery Christmas Market

How is it already December?  I don’t know about you guys but the last few months have been a blur and I still can’t believe there are only 2.5 weeks left in the year!  Usually by this time I’ve put up my Christmas tree, bought and signed my cards and even baked up some treats….

Shangri-La High Tea

There’s no way to deny it now.  We’ve officially had our first snow storm of the year, which means that the holidays are right around the corner. Side note – not a good time to be stranded at my parent’s house and forbidden to leave.  So aside from all the comfort food that is naturally…

Friday Nights Live @ the ROM

Remember those grade school field trips to the museum that we all dreaded and just used as an excuse to get out of the classroom and create trouble with our friends?  Well believe it or not but the museum is now actually a hot place to be! Thanks to the Royal Ontario Museum they’re giving…

CNE

Although the underlying meaning of the CNE opening in Toronto is that summer is over, you really can’t resist the kitschy carnival rides, overbearing game stalls and the smell of over buttered stale popcorn and sweet funnel cake. Although as a commuter I am NOT a fan of the traffic on the lakeshore – 2…

The Rogers Cup

I’ve been a tennis fan and player for as long as I can remember and I grew up watching the Sampras/Agassi rivalry which made Men’s tennis so exciting and truly fueled my passion to keep playing and improve my game. I learned this year that since 1881, the best in men and women’s tennis have…
