My Favourite Places To Shop in Canada

I’ve been hanging out in Toronto, Canada for the last 2.5 months and it’s been a full two years since my last visit here. There are so many people and things that I’ve missed and I wanted to shed a spotlight on some great brands and stores that I love in Canada.

We will be leaving in less then 10 days to drive BACK across the country with our pup BINGO while stopping to see a few clients on the way. It feels fast, but we’ve been back in Toronto since the start of December and we’re both super eager to get things started. (more…)

During my seven-year career as a DJ, I had the chance to work and attend 400+ weddings all over Toronto and the GTA. I’m always paying close attention to the food, service and how well I am treated (even as a staff member – these are the people who will sing your praises).

A few of them stand out in my mind, so I’m sharing my most favourite and unique wedding venues in Toronto as an industry-insider:

Light, Healthy + Delicious at The Pickle Barrel – Toronto

A sponsored post.

I’ve been trying to eat healthy all month, but eating out is SUCH a challenge for me because I usually default to something fried and greasy. Does anyone else here do the same thing? My poor choices usually ends up derailing my diet and will lead to more junk food all week.

So what’s a girl to do?

Giving up on eating out is just not an option.

I met with Rose Reisman – a leading health and nutrition expert, cookbook author, caterer, and media personality who had some great advice for me. She suggested: (more…)

Have you been meal prepping like a maniac?

I’m one of those people who like to make New Year’s Resolutions and this year I opted for a Dry January and to stick to my Reducetarian Diet. We’re nearing the end of the month and it’s been so far, so good! (more…)
