Brunch at Bar Reyna

Surprise, surprise, I got up to some more brunching – this time, at Bar Reyna, with blogger friends, Anna, Camilla, Didier, Karen, Kirsten, and Tiffany. One of the best things about brunching with lots of friends is that you can order the entire menu and share. But, if you’ve ever seen us in action when we get together, you’d know that we can create quite the commotion (bless the poor souls of all the other folks trying to enjoy their meals). Case in point: our brunch at Bar Reyna – one of the newest hot spots in Yorkville, and in my opinion, one…

Setting Sail with Bombay Sapphire

For the past few weeks, my Monday nights have consisted of ordering UberEats and watching Bachelor in Paradise with my fiancé. But last Monday, I had the privilege of setting sail with Bombay Sapphire Gin and being one of the first people to sample their new gin blend, Star of Bombay, along with an intimate group of about 100 other people (including my fellow blogger friends, The Curious Creature, Simply Teee, EatNMingle, and Hypebelly). For a couple hours, we were ‘gone with the gin’ (haha, get it?!), as we cruised around the Toronto harbour on the Tall Ship Kajama. Bombay Sapphire spared no…

STC’S New TASTE MRKT

This past weekend, I checked out Scarborough Town Centre (STC)’s newly launched #TASTEMRKT with my fiancé and some friends, including The Stylish Foodie. I grew up in Scarborough and STC is a mall that I was all too familiar with when I was a kid. I was what you’d call a “mall rat” back then because I’d spend most of my Fridays after school loitering around the mall. So, it was a pretty surreal experience to go back and see what it looks like now. The old food court is long gone and TASTE MRKT is a total (and beautiful) transformation…

10,000 Hours – Featured by Peace Collective

It’s not every day that an awesome Canadian brand that you respect and admire approaches you because they want to do a feature. So, when Peace Collective contacted me and said they thought that it was pretty cool that I was both a lawyer and a blogger at the same time and they wanted to write an article called “10,000 Hours” about me, I was actually beside myself! Sit down to interview me about my life and career…what? Photo shoot, mood board for my story – whaaatt?! Is this even real life? I have been proudly working with Peace Collective since about March of this…

Care-Free

I shot this look with Tiffany (@littleblackpearls) on a gorgeous, sunny day earlier in July. That day, on our agenda was: visiting a new coffee shop (for the coffee and the photos, of course), shooting at Sugar Beach, and then meeting some of our other blogger friends for brunch and ice cream. Coffee, shooting, brunch, ice cream – sounds like the perfect Sunday to me! Looking at the images for this blog post of me twirling and frolicking around in the sand (even though we were technically still ‘working’) makes me appreciate even more those care-free weekends when my time belonged completely…

Grey Goose Boulangerie Bleue x Jamie Kennedy

A little while back, I was invited to attend Grey Goose Canada’s Boulangerie Bleue pop-up event. I can safely say it was the event of the year! In fact, it wasn’t just an event, it was a whole experience. Boulangerie Bleue is being held in many major cities around the world, including Paris, Ibiza, New York, London, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Milan, and Madrid, to name a few, on various dates between June and September. Just peruse the many photos with the #boulangeriebleue and #flybeyond hashtags on Instagram to get a flavour for what it’s all about. The Toronto edition was held at Spoke on the Water at the Island Yacht…

Gusto 101

Consistency is key, and I think the people over at Gusto 54 Restaurant Group must have clued into that a long time ago. They’re the restaurant group that owns neighbourhood staples, like Trattoria Nervosa (which just celebrated its 20th–yes 20th!–anniversary), Gusto 101, Pai Northern Thai Kitchen, Felix in Los Angeles, and soon to be opened Chubby’s Jamaican Kitchen and Gusto 501. I can’t tell you how excited I am that another Gusto location will be opening up in my hood at 501 King St. E.! While I’ve seen many restaurants come and go in the King West, Toronto neighbourhood, Gusto 101 (located at 101 Portland St.) has been around…

Celebrating Our Engagement

My fiancé, Alex, proposed to me on December 12, 2015 and it was magical! Whenever people ask me how he proposed, I always ask them how much time they have to listen to the story! I’m truly not exaggerating when I tell you that our proposal was like something out of a movie! Alex pulled out all the stops by planning an entire day full of surprises, including asking me to marry him with 4 framed pictures in an art gallery, a surprise lunch with our friends, dinner at my favourite restaurant, and a helicopter ride around Toronto! We were lucky enough…

Bailey Nelson

Who ever said premium glasses had to cost a fortune?! The wonderful people at Bailey Nelson aspire to bring everyone the same quality glasses and sunglasses as all the luxury brands at a fraction of the cost, and I appreciate that! They started in Australia in 2012, and they now have locations all across Australia, New Zealand and the UK, and a total of 6 stores across Canada, including Vancouver, Ottawa, and Toronto. Breaking away from the same supply chain that other designers use and thus saving you all the mark-ups, Bailey Nelson manufactures their glasses using quality materials and craftsmanship. They’re striving to change the glasses industry and…

Day Off

Have you ever taken a day off to just explore and be a tourist in your own city? I think it’s not only important to do that every once in a while to have fun, but I’ve also felt the necessity of doing that more so in the last 6-8 months (when I’ve had to deal with the additional pressure of blogging while maintaining a full-time job). I normally use my vacation days for actual trips, but since my fiancé and I are saving for our wedding and therefore not travelling much this year, I figured I might as well put my vacation days to good use…
