A Weekend in Scottsdale

There’s nothing like a trip to a warm destination to get you ready for the summer months, especially if you live in Canada where we’re pretty much begging for the heat at this time of year.  If you’re following me on Instagram (@thecityismineTO) then you know that I recently took a long overdue girls trip…

SoSo Food Club Review

I haven’t done a solid restaurant review in what feels like months and by the sounds of it, it’s something you lovely folks are interested in seeing more of.  I will try, I promise.  This most recent food adventure took me to SoSo Food Club, a spot that is only about a year old and…

April – Things to Do in Toronto

Well friends, it looks like we might actually be done with Winter.  Who’s excited? This girl is.  The snow is melting, the sun is coming out which means I’m also coming out of hibernation! I was so done with Winter that I couldn’t even get myself to put together a list of March events.  Yeah…

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…

Travel: How To Pack a Carry-On

When it comes to packing, I have to say that I’ve developed my own Marie Kondo-esque system.  I used to be that girl who had to take a massive suitcase with her anytime she got on a plane.  Whenever I returned home, I realized I didn’t use or wear HALF of what I had taken…

Recipe: Slow Cooked Pulled Pork

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…
