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…

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…

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….

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…
