12 Places to Check Out in Colorado

Mountains, big cities, national parks, red rocks, hot springs, outdoor adventure parks – if you’re a nature lover, then Colorado is the place for you! I was invited by Colorado Tourism earlier this year with a group of 4 other creators (Raymond of Travelling Foodie, Bella of xoxoBella, Danielle of TO Foodies, and Craig of Big Daddy Kreativ). In 7 days, we visited 6 different cities – enough time to see some of the highlights of the state! As a first-timer to Colorado, I had no idea just how diverse the state is! While famous for its first-class ski resorts…

Vancouver Travel Guide | Weekend Anniversary Getaway

Alex and I just celebrated our 2-year wedding anniversary on July 8th (where does the time go?!). To honour the occasion, we decided to travel to Vancouver—somewhere that’s been on my bucket list for ages! We started a new tradition of taking a big trip for our anniversary every year, instead of buying each other gifts. We have our sights set on Asia for October (fingers crossed!), but until then, we thought a little jaunt would do the trick to tide us over! As someone who previously assumed the journey was about 6 hours, I was so pleasantly surprised to…

#CheerstoRosé! | Summer Rosé Picks at the LCBO For Under $15

It’s no secret that I adore rosé. While excellent to drink all year-round, it’s my absolute FAVE in the summertime! Since it’s meant to be served chilled, in my opinion, there’s nothing better or more refreshing to have while sitting on a patio (or a beach) in the summer than a delicious glass of rosé. This year, the LCBO actually introduced more than 17 new rosés in its stores. These are great additions to its already impressive and ever-growing rosé collection (trust me, I know – I’m what you’d call a ‘loyal customer’ 😉)! LCBO’s Rosé Cabana Lounge & Rosé…

A Scavenger Hunt Road Trip with Buick Canada

Would you ever round up a group of girlfriends and go on a road trip, without knowing exactly where you were going? Would you ever embark on a scavenger hunt that could take you into unknown terrain or to places you’ve never been? Well, 4 of my girlfriends, Anna, Karen, Soheila, Solmaz, and I did exactly that a few weeks ago! The only certainty we had was our means of transportation: a 2019 Buick Envision. Truth be told, I have two sides to my personality. While I have a huge sense of adventure and like to be spontaneous, I also…

The Importance of Taking a Break

How many times a week do you give yourself time to take a break? In North America, there’s such a pervasive culture of go, go, go – of “busy” and “productive” being good for us. Many people derive a sense of importance from how much work they have, and to them, taking a break may be seen as counter-productive or a luxury. I am definitely guilty of the above a lot of the time! Because I’m self-employed, the more work I take on, the more money I earn for myself and my family. When you have a mortgage, bills, and…

Metro’s New Online Grocery Service

We all have good weeks and bad weeks. There are some weeks when I’m so completely on top of it – when my husband and I can get all our groceries, meal planning and prep done, cook a couple nights, I crush all my work goals, and somehow make it to the gym 5 days in a row. Then, there are other weeks, when I feel like I’m glued to my desk and working ‘round the clock, or am recovering from travel exhaustion, and I barely have enough time (or energy) for anything, let alone meal planning and grocery shopping….

A Moroccan-Inspired Citrus Party

Entertaining is one of my favourite things to do, especially once the weather warms up! There is nothing better than sitting outside in the backyard or on the patio with friends, enjoying good food and drink! Wouldn’t you agree? Are you more the entertaining type, or the type that prefers to be entertained? I’m definitely the former, and I’ve shared a few entertaining guides in the past. I always look at entertaining as a way to get creative and experiment with a new theme or a new recipe! It can also be a great way to collaborate with a friend…

How Best Buy Helped Us Adapt to Our Changing Needs | Dyson V11 Absolute Review

It’s funny how much can change in a couple years! I wrote this post about how our Dyson Ball Animal 2 helped my husband and me live happily ever after. And now, fast forward to almost a couple years later, and our family of two has grown to become a family of three (I’m referring to our little furbaby, Douglas, btw. Don’t worry, we aren’t expecting!). As with any expanding family, our needs have naturally changed. Consequently, how we have to do things around the house has changed too (which is why we are thankful for Best Buy Canada, as…

How to Spend a Weekend in Southwestern Ontario

I’m a big proponent of local travel. Not only can you plan a trip for the whole fam that doesn’t break the bank, but you can also discover what’s in your own backyard and support local businesses. Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of local travel within Southern Ontario. I’ve visited Grand Bend & Sarnia, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Prince Edward County, and just spent another weekend in Southwestern Ontario (London, Essex County & Point Pelee, to be exact). All four were easy weekend road trips, and each destination is suitable for families, couples and/or groups of friends. Ontario’s Southwest has SO much…

11 Things to Do in Prince Edward County

This year, I’ve been traveling a lot more than is usual for me, and am totally loving it (while grateful, at the same time)! Thus far, I’ve been to Jamaica, Disneyland, Los Angeles, Miami, and now, Prince Edward County. As I publish this today, my husband and I are en route to explore another destination, which I’ll be writing about in an upcoming post soon. While I love to travel to exotic destinations, it’s not always in the cards (or budget) for people. Living in Canada, we are totally spoiled with so much natural beauty in our provinces. Within Ontario,…
