Our Staycation in the Penthouse Suite at The Thompson Toronto

As if getting to staycation (yes, it is a verb) in a suite at the Thompson Toronto wasn’t cool enough, you can only imagine the look on our faces when the girl at the front desk told us on check-in: “you’ve been upgraded to the Penthouse Suite”! Well, our eyes probably lit up brighter than a Christmas tree! The Thompson Toronto is one of our favourite places in the city and this staycation couldn’t have come at a better time—with a mere 3(ish) months before our wedding and when the last 6(ish) months for me have consisted of day in…

Same, Same, But Different

It’s the weekend, everyone, and I’m extra excited! As I type this blog post, I’m actually sitting on the #JunoExpress, a Via Rail train jam-packed with people heading to Ottawa for the Juno Awards! It’s my first time going to the Juno Awards, and I’m so happy to be one of the bloggers going with Metro Ontario. I’ll be writing all about my experience in an upcoming blog post, so make sure you’ve subscribed to my blog. And if you’re reading this blog post and not already following me on Instagram, make sure you hit “follow”, since I’ll be showing…

Lambretta Pizzeria & Wine Bar: A Hidden Gem in Roncesvalles Village

I don’t spend enough time in Roncesvalles Village (“Roncy”, for short), although I should! It’s Toronto’s original Polish neighbourhood, and it underwent a significant revitalization a few years ago. It’s home to some pretty cool spots, like the original location of La Cubana, Reunion Island Coffee, and Barque Smokehouse and Butcher Bar, to name a few. But today on the blog, I want to share a pizzeria that I recently discovered, even though it’s been around for a couple of years: Lambretta Pizzeria & Wine Bar (See? This is why I need to spend more time in this neighbourhood. I’m…

What’s Old Is New Again

Hey friends! It was about time that I posted an OOTD, as it’s been a while! For today’s outfit, I’m featuring something old and something new…but nothing borrowed or blue (we’ll save those for the wedding day 😉 ). Of course, I’m excited to talk about what’s new on me (there are actually 2 things). But, I think it’s equally as important to draw your attention to what’s old: this Balmain x H&M jacket that I picked up in November of 2015, which I still swoon over. The quick backstory on this jacket is that I waited in line at…

5 Simple Things All Millennials Should Know About Saving Money

The other day, I had a HUGE wake-up call. I went into Meridian Credit Union* to meet with a financial advisor and I learned that I would need to save approximately $2.9 million for my retirement! That amounts to about $10,000 per month at my current age!!! Once I picked my jaw up off the ground, Gloria (the Meridian financial advisor I met with) told me not to worry! This was just an estimate and there were many other factors to consider in my retirement plan. Gloria then spent the next hour reviewing my finances with me and helping me…

How Mentorship Has Impacted My Life and How I Said Thanks to My Mentor

So, it’s been several weeks since my last blog post and I apologize for falling behind! It’s been so busy at work, we’ve been doing a lot of wedding planning, and I’ve been super focused on my physical fitness (as you can probably tell if you follow my IG stories) …and well, you really can’t do EVERYTHING, even though you can try! But I’m excited to be sharing a new post with you today on Valentine’s Day about a topic that is very near and dear to my heart: mentorship. I recently had the opportunity to say a big “Thank…

4 Tips For Sticking to Your Goals in 2017

In my last blog post, I talked about the danger of making new year’s resolutions and the difference between goals and resolutions. I explained that it’s better to have goals, because they’re directed towards results, rather than being abstract thoughts or intentions. So, once you’ve considered what some of your goals (rather than resolutions) may be for 2017, here are my 4 simple tips on how you can actually stick to them: Make sure they’re realistic. Everyone is different, so set short-term and long-term goals that are within reach for you. If your goals are too idealistic, you’re setting yourself up…

The Danger with New Year’s Resolutions and Why You Should Avoid Them

Without fail, the ushering in of a new year brings with it a stream of new year’s resolutions! Gyms get filled, people sober up or go on detoxes, and so it goes. But, about a month or two later, this trend of people doing what’s really, really good for them and avoiding what’s really, really bad for them starts to taper off. Why? Because resolutions don’t last and aren’t the same as setting actual goals. Goals vs. Resolutions So, what’s the difference? A “resolution” is a firm decision or determination to do/not do something. A “goal” is the result or…

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…
