8 Places to Eat & Drink in Vancouver

I was blown away by the food in Vancouver – and not for the obvious reasons, like sushi and seafood. On my first visit to Vancouver earlier this year, I was pleasantly surprised to see how diverse, cutting edge, and exciting Vancouver’s gastronomy scene really is! Check out my Vancouver Travel Guide here, which has recommendations on where to stay, a comprehensive list on what to do (and what not to do), and a handy list of things to know before you travel to Vancouver. Vancouver’s culinary scene is truly reflective of its diverse population. Naturally, there is a heavy…

6 of the Best and Most Instagrammable Places in Chicago

Chicago is such a great city! I’ve been there twice. The first time was with my husband about 3 years ago. You can find my comprehensive travel guide to Chicago here. Fun fact: that was actually my first ever travel blog post (oh, what a long way I’ve come since then!). A few weeks ago, I joined the Butterball team on a press trip to Chicago to attend Turkey University (yes, it’s a thing!). We were only supposed to be there for a day and a half. But unfortunately for us, mother nature had other plans and our return flight…

15 Things I Would Tell My Younger Self

It’s my 37th birthday, which means I’m officially past my early thirties and am now inching my way towards the big 4-0! On this occasion, I first feel incredibly grateful for the countless good things and people in my life, for my health, and for another year on this planet. I also can’t help but think about all the ups and downs over the years, and about all the lessons I’ve learned. While I don’t regret past experiences, there are definitely some nuggets of wisdom that I’ve picked up over time. And I’m sure that these nuggets—had I known them…

Why I Decided to Get CoolSculpting®

This post was done in partnership with Allergan. But as always, all opinions and thoughts are 100% my own. Self-love and self-improvement are not mutually exclusive. It took me a while to reconcile those two concepts. With all the competing messages we’re constantly bombarded with, it can be hard to know what to believe. I am 100% in support of the wave of body positivity that has been ushered in in recent years and am so happy to see diverse body types finally being represented in a real way. But I’ve also felt conflicted because, if we’re encouraged to “love…

Stop Trying to do It All – Hire a Professional Cleaner!

If it’s one thing the women’s movement has taught us, it’s that we can do it all! But while we truly can do it all, the real question is: why would we want to?! Time is finite, and it’s also a commodity. How we choose to spend our time has a direct impact on our happiness and mental health, physical health, and relationships with our family and friends. I think it’s pretty common for women to feel like they’re constantly juggling a million things (does the above scenario look anything like you?). In my case, since quitting law and starting…

Why I Decided to Give Freedom Mobile A Try

Is it just me or have you also grown tired of all the downsides that come along with big wireless companies? I’ve been a customer with one of them for about 9 years – which, admittedly, may seem like a long time and imply I’m happy. But, while there are things I have liked, there have been many things I’ve disliked – particularly when it comes to my phone plan options. Not to mention the price per month! Truth be told, Canada’s mobile plans are some of the most expensive in the world. And since the big carriers have all…

3 Comforting Appetizers Using Prosciutto & Grana Padano

Is it weird that the thing I get most excited for about fall is the return of comfort food?! Forget the pumpkin spiced lattes, cable knit sweaters, leaves changing colours and all that other autumnal stuff! I just care about having the kind of food that feels like a hug, about the prospects of entertaining (and being entertained) for Thanksgiving, and about cozying up under a blanket with a bowl of warm soup! During the cooler months as we hibernate, I also find myself back in the kitchen more often. Are you the same way? Since I’m always looking for…

Born to Let Go! | Girls’ Adventure in Québec

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. – Neale Donald Walsch When’s the last time you did something outside of your comfort zone? Like, reallllly outside of your comfort zone? When I travel, I’m adventurous when it comes to food (I did eat grasshoppers and crickets on my trip to Mexico City) and am totally down to do a couple ‘soft adventure’ activities. But, I can’t say that I’ve ever gone on a trip that was dedicated solely to adventure. So, when this opportunity with QuébecOriginal arose for an adventure in Québec, I was all for it! Why?…

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…
