Toronto Parks That Aren’t Trinity Bellwoods

Most of you know what happened during the weekend of May 23rd here in Toronto but for those who don’t, our city contributed to those videos that are getting passed around on social media of people being obnoxious, irresponsible and careless in public spaces during a GLOBAL PANDEMIC. I just don’t understand how 10,000 people…

My First Juice Cleanse Experience

Hi! If you’ve found yourself on this page, it’s because you’re interested in hearing about my first time experience with a juice cleanse.  We’re coming up on 3 months of social distancing, self quarantining and WAY too much baking, so I figured this would be a really good time to try one of these cleanses….

My Top 10 Book and Show Recommendations to Get Through Self-Isolation

Looks like we’re going to be self isolating and social distancing for quite a while longer, which means, constantly finding ways to keep occupied and entertained.  I wrote a post about Things to Do in Self Isolation recently but what I have been learning over the last few days is that it’s also okay to…

Things To Do During Self-Isolation

We’ve officially hit the one month mark of physical distancing and self-isolation, and I don’t know about you guys, but I am running out of things to do. I’ve actually started creating messes just so I have something to clean! Jokes aside, it can be hard to occupy ourselves when we’re used to leading a…

Reflecting Back on 2019

In case you haven’t already been told, it’s officially the end of decade!  Where does the time go?  Admittedly, New Years is not my favourite holiday.  It feels like a day of forced fun with high expectations to do something “memorable” and resolutions that are made and kept only till February 1.  I prefer to…

Christmas Gift Guide

Christmas is around the corner and hopefully you are making your list and checking it twice!  I like to get my shopping started nice and early so that I can keep an eye out as I shop and grab that perfect gift.  This year, I’ve put together a list of some of my favourite things…

Things To Do in Toronto (Updated Weekly)

So I’ve tried this a few times now but I think this might be the best way.  A consolidation of events by week in ONE place.  Phew.  Hopefully, for those who have been asking, this will be a central spot, similar to my Toronto Drink Deals Post, that will be a one stop shop for…

A Weekend in Montreal

There was no better way to cap the summer off than taking a weekend trip to Montreal.  For those who don’t know me, I was actually born and raised in Montreal and moved to Toronto with my family when I was 15 years old.  Yes, this means I was fluent in French and may or…

Sun Protection Basics

Summer is here which means the temperatures are warmer and the sun is stronger than ever.  I have to admit, I took sun protection for granted for a really long time.  I wouldn’t wear sunscreen and would just assume that because I already have darker skin, that I wouldn’t burn or be affected.  Well that…

Shook Kitchen Review

Feels like a minute since I did a good ol’ restaurant review!  Its been something you guys have been asking for more of so I will try to do a better job at writing and posting full reviews of the meals and restaurants I experience. Last week I got to check out the newly opened…
