Review of Chez’s Restaurant

College Street is probably one of my favourite streets in the city and the one where I have the most memories.  When I was fresh out of school, I used to party on College ALL the time and then ironically, a few years later, I landed a job right on the main strip.  8 years…

Chia Seed Pudding Recipe

There’s no denying it.  I have a sweet tooth, and a pretty intense one.  This is why if you ever come to my home, you’ll probably never find any treats because a) I try not to buy them and b) I’ve probably already eaten all of them. Now that summer is winding down and comfort…

TIFF ’18 My Movies to Watch

Being a local while TIFF is happening in the city can be really interesting.  Even more interesting when it’s happening down the street from you.  In some ways I feel extremely proud that my home city is hosting a world renowned festival that has been around for almost 40 years (I know!) and attracts the…

The Ten Spot Gel Mani/Pedi Review

Hair done, nails done, everything ‘did.  Yup, it’s in your head now. I try not to be too high maintenance when it comes to beauty upkeep, but the one thing that is a must for me is having my nails done.  I’m one of those weird people that is quite conscious of their hands.  God…

My Summer Skincare Routine

A short disclaimer.  I am not a dermatologist or any kind of skincare expert.  I have built my routines on research, reviews that I’ve read and of course some good ol’ trial and error.  This is also NOT a sponsored post.  These are genuinely all products that I have bought, used and live by. Living…

A Weekend in Medellin, Colombia

In my head I know that Winter only lasts a few months, but after the haze and flurry of Christmas it feels like a lifetime before we get to have sunny warm days again.  If I can get my act together, I usually try and plan a little getaway between January and March so I…

Cook It Meal Kits

You guys know that I’ve started cooking a lot more at home.  It’s an easy way to stay healthy, save money and appreciate the joy of cooking.  Living in the city gives you so many options for take-out and dining but sometimes you just want a nice home cooked meal. In the last few years…

Dinner at Do Not Disturb (CLOSED)

When someone tells me that I will want to “order everything on the menu”, I can’t help but get a little excited about what’s in store for dinner. Do Not Disturb is appropriately (and hilariously) located inside The Beverley Hotel at Queen and John.  I’ve been to this boutique hotel for drinks on their adorable…

How To Create An Epic Superbowl Spread with Sabra Dips

Superbowl time means one thing for me.  Indulging in saucy, spicy, cheesy, finger licking delectable food.  And the half time show of course.  I have seen some epic spreads in my time for the big game, so I figured this year would the perfect opportunity to put my own take on a crowd-pleasing menu. Lately…

Bring on 2018

Happy New Year my lovely readers! I meant to publish this post much earlier in the week but since we’ve been living in Elsa’s Frozen universe, I have been dealing with a nasty sinus cold which had me down for a few days and unable to look at screens for very long.  Still not 100%,…
