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…

Easy Entertaining with San Daniele and Mastro Charcuterie

Happy 2017, everyone! I hope you’ve all enjoyed the holidays. It’s been a little while since my last blog post. Between being super busy at the office and spending time with family and friends, I’ve been mentally and physically exhausted (who else can relate?)!

But, I’ll do my very best to bring you guys lots more fresh content for the new year soon, so stay tuned! Well, the holidays may officially be over, but hopefully the…

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!

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…
