Easy Holiday Entertaining Guide with the PC Insiders Collection

My husband and I kick-started the holiday season by throwing a little party with a couple of our closest friends last weekend. We love spending quality time with our friends during the holidays, but it can be difficult to get everyone together closer to Christmas. So, we figured we’d start a bit early, and with the help of the PC Insiders Collection it was a total breeze from start to finish! If you’ve never heard of it before, the PC Insiders Collection is basically a lifesaver! It has pretty much every thing you ever needed to throw a party, from…

It’s Not Too Soon to Start Thinking about Aging, So Here’s What You Can do About it Now

Last week, I had the pleasure of sitting down for breakfast with Jeanne Beker, Tosca Reno, Lynn Spence, Dr. Janet Tamo and Dr. Kucy Pon at a roundtable hosted by Proctor & Gamble at Oretta. Not only are some of these ladies icons in their own right, but they are also all incredibly nice people! Needless to say, joining them at an intimate breakfast to discuss some of the most important issues facing women was very humbling and inspiring! The focus of the discussion was on health, wellness, and beauty for the aging woman, particularly women who fall into the…

Audible Comes to Canada

Hands up, if you don’t make enough time for reading in your life! …Guilty, as charged. I’ve shared on my Instagram that reading isn’t something I’ve typically made time for, but I aspire to do more of. I know, I know, the benefits of reading are innumerable – like reducing stress, stimulating the mind, and generally carving out time for yourself to escape your daily stresses and pressures. You don’t have to sell me on it! But I truly get caught up in the ‘go, go, go mentality’, especially as a self-employed person, that I find it difficult to justify…

Getting the VIP Treatment at the 2017 Rogers Cup

Last Wednesday, I was given the VIP treatment at the Rogers Cup, courtesy of National Bank, the presenting sponsor. I had the absolute pleasure of being able to host my very own VIP party for myself and 8 of my closest friends on the rooftop of the National Bank Booth! I love going to the Rogers Cup – it’s always so exciting and entertaining! Every year, I attend as a regular spectator. But this year’s experience was obviously extra special. The Rogers Cup was held this year between August 7th and 13th at the Aviva Centre at York University, which…

Soundpays: The Newest Revolution in Mobile Shopping

When Shazam came out, I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread! I could be anywhere and hear a song I needed to know the name of, and I could find out at the simple press of a button. As a music lover, this was like pure magic! You know what else I love besides music? Shopping. Now there’s an app which is basically the Shazam for mobile shopping, and it’s called Soundpays. Soundpays is a new mobile wallet app, but it’s unlike any other mobile wallet out there. Based in Toronto, it’s Canadian innovation at its finest…

There’s No Place Like Home: My New Hair Collaboration with Toni & Guy

I’m not afraid of commitment. I mean, I’m happily engaged to be married (we’ve been together for nearly 4 years), I’ve had several long-term relationships before my fiancé, and I have friendships that have lasted more than 30 years. But for some reason, I’ve never been able to commit to certain essential service providers, like a family doctor (I haven’t seen the same doctor regularly since my pediatrician) or a hairdresser. My ‘hair history’ is actually quite embarrassing. I used to go for a haircut max two times a year; and, other than my phase in high school when I…
