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…

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 abundant 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…

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…

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…

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…
