Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Well, looks like winter has reared its ugly head and we’ve been hit with a couple of major snowstorms over the last two weeks. Even though I was really hoping (actually, praying) for a NON-white Christmas (does that make me sound like a scrooge?), I think the white stuff is finally here to stay! Sometimes I swear that I was born on the wrong continent because my body really isn’t made for this weather! When it’s winter, I literally feel the chill deep down in my bones, and I avoid being outside and any type of outdoor activity like the…

The One Superfood That’s Part of My Daily Routine

Working as a lawyer and a blogger means that my schedule is different from day to day and my meals can be pretty unpredictable. In terms of blogging, each week, there can be multiple events to go to, and there are always new restaurants to check out or review. I talked about the effect of this on my body in one of my last blog posts and how I’m determined to get back into shape. I have such a Type A personality, so a little part of me dies inside whenever I have no control over my eating. But the…

Miraj Hammam Spa: The Perfect Place to Get Pampered in Toronto

If heaven is a place on earth, then the Miraj Hammam Spa at the Shangri-la Toronto must be it! Imagine a beautiful oasis in the heart of downtown Toronto. We’re talking lovely, Moroccan-inspired décor and service that is nothing short of exceptional. This is the place you go, if you really want to be pampered! The Hotel I’m a huge fan of the Shangri-la Toronto. The hotel is gorgeous, Momofuku is one of my favourite places for brunch in the city, and Bosk is also outstanding. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen that I was treated…

Why I’ve Given up Drinking Until the New Year

Truth be told, I have a love-hate relationship with alcohol. I’ve been known to enjoy a nice glass (or three) of wine every now and then; and although I’ve been consuming alcohol for more than a decade, I still can’t seem to strike the right balance. So, starting on November 5th, I decided to kick drinking to the curb until the new year, and here are the reasons why… Physical Health First and foremost, I promised myself that I would get back to my ideal weight before the end of the year. Food blogging has taken a toll on my…

Middle Eastern Brunch at Souk Tabule

The Toronto food scene is so abundant, and each month, there seems to be another new place popping up. With so many great restaurants in the city, I think in order to attract (and keep) customers, restaurant owners have to put thought not only into their food, but also into their interior design. Now don’t get me wrong, beautiful décor could never make up for bad food. But, since we are so spoiled for choice in Toronto, we now expect a restaurant to hit all the marks, if it’s going to impress us. We are millennials after all – demanding,…

10 Reflections on Blogging, After My First Year as a Blogger

The launch of the Kenzo x H&M collection a couple weeks ago was a humble reminder of this time one year ago, when I was so desperate…errr, excited, to shop the Balmain x H&M collection that I did one of the craziest things of my entire life: camping out at the mall. I waited in line for more than 13 hours, including sleeping on the freezing cold Toronto Eaton Centre floor, just so I could be one of the first people to get dibs on the exclusive merchandise…or so I thought. I later learned that some lucky fashion bloggers got…

Why Making the Switch to LED Light Bulbs is a Bright Idea

If you read my last style post, you’d already know how I feel about the fall. Another thing that I detest about this time of year is that the days are so much shorter. I wake up in the morning and it’s still pitch black, and the same goes for when I leave work in the afternoon. Plus, there are so many rainy and gloomy days; it’s really depressing. Because our place faces north and we have no windows to the east and west, we have never typically gotten a lot of natural sunlight coming into our home. So, I…

3 Reasons to Visit Oro di Napoli

If you are what you eat, then I’d be a large, thin crust sausage pizza with extra sauce! Pizza is my guiltiest of all guilty pleasures and the hardest thing for me to say no to when I’m on a diet. Speaking of diets, I’ve been trying to get rid of all these extra pounds that I put on in the last year from food blogging for THE longest time (more on that in another post). But, since October was National Pizza Month (yes, that is a thing), I figured I’d wait until this month to say buh bye to…

Transitional Dressing with Bench Canada

Oh fall, everyone’s favourite season! The leaves change colour to beautiful hues of orange and red, the pumpkin spice latte makes its return (not that I care), people indulge on generous portions of turkey and stuffing for Thanksgiving, and go overboard with the costumes for Halloween. Autumn also happens to be the season that my birthday, which I celebrated last week, falls in. But, believe it or not, fall is my least favourite time of year. Why, you ask? Well, that’s because fall is the beginning of the end. It’s a signal that winter is right around the corner. Most…

Diwan at the Aga Khan Museum

My fiancé and I recently had the pleasure of dining at Diwan inside the Aga Khan Museum*. Unfortunately, Diwan seems to fly under the radar on the Toronto food scene and does not have a big presence on social media. I’m really hoping to help change that through this blog post because we were really, really impressed by our meal there! Just a short drive north on the DVP from downtown Toronto, the Aga Khan Museum is known not only for its art exhibits, but also for its amazing architecture and beautiful Aga Khan park grounds. The modern, clean lines…
