Brunch @ The Country General

The County General is the Southern, free-spirited sister of Splendido. Everyday of the week, the restaurant offers libations and good eats… including Mondays. To most, the first day is typically perceived as the black sheep and the least favourite child in the working-weekday family. However, at The County General (936 Queen Street West, Toronto), they’ve showered […]

High Energy and Diversity on TROVE’s Debut Album

TROVE’s self-titled debut marks the beginning of something big for the Canadian four-piece rock band. They have gained a bit of a following over the past year, playing open mics and cover gigs, and also opening for big name acts like Anvil, Stryper, Nektar and Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash.

Nivea Gentle Foaming Cleanser for Dry or Sensitive Skin

My skin is a bit wonky because in the summer time it’s very oily and acne-prone but in the winter it’s terribly dry, sensitive and itchy. When the cooler temperatures started creeping in a few weeks ago, I noticed an instant change in my skin. Within days my face was dry and I was developing […]

It’s one of the most easiest yet delightful things to make and eat, so I thought I’d share my recipe with you. If you’re looking to help out in the kitchen this weekend for Thanksgiving dinner, I highly suggest […]

Strange Phobia Exposed

There is something strange about me that most people don’t know. It’s definitely a great “tell me some interesting about you” conversation starter and weird enough to arouse a few chuckles. I am deathly terrified of caterpillars. Yep, you read it right, CATERPILLARS! It’s a rather serious phobia that cripples me and my activities as soon as […]

The Dirties Offers a Clear View of Bullying

The Dirties is a realistic story of the lead up to a school shooting by two friends who have been bullied by a group they call “The Dirties.” It looks at the subtlety of bullying today and it is this subtlety that draws the audience in and makes them a witness of bullying. “The audience is put into […]
