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 […]

Mini Getaway to Viamede Resort

I spent the weekend at Viamede Resort about two hours outside of Toronto; the food alone was worth the trip. If food doesn’t excite you, consider being able to take your dog for a walk while he chases frogs during sunrise, or knowing that your cottage has a wood stove (with limitless wood) and delicious food just […]

Review: Boston Pizza’s Pizzaburger

In April of this year Boston Pizza introduced a new menu item: the Pizzaburger. According to the original press release, it was an attempt to “pizza-fy” their menu, making their burgers and sandwiches bun-less. Thus, the Pizzaburger was born. It is a half-pound prime rib burger, with mozzarella cheese, pepperoni and bacon wrapped in their hand-pressed pizza dough. […]

Personal Thoughts on Religion

This is one of the dinner party deadly three: War! Politics! Religion! All of these things we’re not supposed to discuss are more important today than they have ever been. Whether it be for spiritual guidance, the development of value systems or community building, religion serves a purpose in society. To bring this all to the forefront, equally, I […]

Recap of #TacoTweetup at La Mexicana

Last Friday evening a *small* group of Twitter friends got together for #TacoTweetup at La Mexicana. New friendships were made and some old ones reunited over delicious mojitos and Mexican food. It was the first time James and I co-hosted a “social” event and we couldn’t be more happy with the turnout. The capacity we initially […]

Taste of the Kingsway in Etobicoke

This past Sunday (Sept. 8, 2013) I took Frenzi for a walk up Bloor Street West, a few blocks with the cursory knowledge that an event called Taste of the Kingsway was happening, an annual gathering held by the Kingsway BIA. It was an enjoyable walk-through, I had no idea what to expect. Taste of the Kingsway was […]

Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish For Summer (& giveaway)

Just like any girl in the world, I love to paint my nails. I love it even more when the colour lasts, un-chipped, for more than three days. What makes a polish even better is when it dries smoothly and fast without leaving little bumps or smudges. I discovered Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish around Christmas […]
