Happy Monday, friends! It’s a new week and I have some exciting news to share with you.

4 Common Sense Things Every Bride Needs to Do Before Getting Married

My whole life, I’ve been pretty organized. I like to be on top of things and I live by spreadsheets and to-do lists. But, blogging, working full-time AND planning a wedding at the same time has thrown that for a complete loop. I haven’t been able to give wedding planning the attention it deserves, and it’s literally made a part of me die inside. Nevertheless, until I have kids, my wedding is going to be the biggest and most important day of my life. So, here are 4 common sense things I’ve made sure to do before getting married, to feel…

My ‘Jacked Up’ BLT Recipe

Warning: this post may contain scenes of extreme deliciousness (which may be unsuitable for those who do not enjoy bacon). It is intended for mature carnivores only. Viewer discretion is advised. Bacon lovers, rejoice! Did you know that National BLT month is a thing? …Yeah, me neither.

National BLT month is during the month of April, and I’ve teamed up with duBreton to bring you my very own, mouth-watering BLT recipe. It’s a classic BLT sandwich  with a couple…

Eating My Way Across Ontario with Metro – First Stop: The JUNO Awards

Anyone who knows me well knows there are 3 things in life that I love the most (aside from my fiancé and pizza): food, travel, and music. So, when Metro offered to take me on an adventure this past weekend to Ottawa for The JUNO Awards—giving me an opportunity to get a HUGE dose of music, food, and travel all at the same time—I was like, “Hellllllll, yessss!” How Metro is Celebrating Canada’s Sesquicentennial In celebration of Canada’s sesquicentennial (which is just a fancy way of saying 150th anniversary), Metro is putting together a series of 7 local events, called…

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!

I’ll be writing all about my experience in an upcoming blog post, so make sure you’ve subscribed to my blog.

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…
