February – Things To Do in Toronto

I”m going to start a new monthly series!.  There’s so much going on in the city at any given time which is what I love about living here but sometimes it can be hard to narrow it down.  Every month, I’m going to try and help.  I’m not going to make this list long or…

How to Set Goals and Achieve Them

Happy New Year you lovely people!  I hope you all had a relaxing, food filled holiday season and had a chance to reset and refuel for the new year ahead.  I know that you have probably been flooded with New Years resolution posts so I’m sorry to add another one to the mix.  I hope…

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…

City Life: Hosting Parties in a Condo

I love to host parties.  Let me rephrase that.  I love the IDEA of hosting parties.  Living in a condo can make it hard to throw the kind of party I want because of the limited space.  I’m slowly starting to get better by hosting smaller groups but even so,  it can be a lot…

City Life: Christmas Decorating for Condos

Oh condo living.  Love it or hate it, it’s the reality for many who live in the city.  I’m finally at a point where most of the big decor ideas for my space are done.  I have a few small things to do and then I’m really DONE.  The holidays are right around the corner…

Food & Drink Deals in Toronto

Who doesn’t love a good deal? When it comes to Happy Hour in Toronto, the options are abundent 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…

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: The Ten Spot Gel Mani/Pedi

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…

City Life: 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…

City Life: How To Design Your Condo Balcony

My balcony is tiny.  I mean, it’s miniscule.  If I were to lie down, I’m pretty sure I would fit perfectly within it.  Needless to say, I’m not throwing any day jams out there but I still wanted to have a space that was decent enough to hang out on, have my morning coffee, read…
