Easy Ways to Give Back

It’s that time of year where giving back and supporting our communities is top of mind.  I’m a big believer that we should find ways to keep the spirit of giving alive all year and not just when the need is at its highest.  I also understand that it can be hard to choose a…

Food & Drink Deals in Toronto

Who doesn’t love a good deal? When it comes to Happy Hour in Toronto, the options are abundant but sometimes the timing doesn’t make sense (who does happy hour from 2-5PM??). After a little bit of research, meaning eating and drinking, I’ve compiled a list of daily food and drink deals at restaurants and bars…

Review: Farmr Eatery and Catering

Living in the city can get hard sometimes.  Don’t’ get me wrong, for the most part I love it, but being at a distance from family can be difficult.  This Thanksgiving was particularly hard because I had plans to go home but got sick and ended up staying in the city.  Seeing everyone’s family dinners…

Brunches with Bottomless Booze

Update:  November 21, 2018 Not on the list below are also: Marben – $29 for a two-hour Mimosa Service on Saturday between 11-3PM It’s me again, talking about my favourite thing.  Brunch.  I’ve been asked a few times why I enjoy brunch so much and I don’t know if I have a simple answer.  I…

Travel: 24 Hours in Prince Edward County

I can’t believe that it took me this long to get out to Prince Edward County, otherwise known as PEC.  I was always so envious of the photos I saw on social media and of course, of all the wine tasting.  A few friends and I were talking about doing a quick weekend getaway so…

CHL Announces Partnership with Kia Canada (SP)

If you live in Toronto, you probably have a love hate relationship with hockey.  But when it comes to Canada’s unofficial National sport, there’s no doubt that everyone can find something to love about it.   I grew up watching hockey with my family and getting up ridiculously early to watch my brother play, so even…

Review: 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…

Recipe: Chia Seed Pudding

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…

City Life: 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…

Review: Noce Restaurant

If you’ve asked me for a restaurant recommendation lately, I’ve probably suggested you try Noce.  Over the last year I’ve been there a few times, both spontaneously and for official tastings.  Each time I have left more impressed with the food, the team and their commitment to creating an authentic Italian dining experience in Toronto….
