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

There are some recipes that are, for a lack of a better word, intimidating.  I avoid these recipes mainly because if I mess it up then I really don’t want to have to go down to Subway and settle for a sandwich.  Pulled pork has been one of those intimidating recipes for me because you…

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…

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…

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…
