Hot Chocolate Festival in Vancouver & All Year Treat Enjoyment

By | February 21st, 2018|Events, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

I don’t drink coffee or tea so my warm drink of choice, is the comforting hot chocolate. Actually, I feel I am a bit of a hot chocolate connoisseur really. I love both a hot, rich, chocolatey drink that isn’t too sweet and I also love a hot, creamy, sweet chocolate drink. I also enjoy [...]

Literary Box Subscription Box by Quarterly – Review

By | November 13th, 2017|Books/Authors, Subscription Box|

With the subscription boxes coming from the USA up to Canada, you must decide if the shipping and dollar conversion are worth it for you. While I like the many different subscription box options offered by Quarterly Co., when I ordered the Fall 2016 Literary Box at $49.00 USA, I had no idea that between [...]

Eagle Creek Doubleback Carry-On Wheeled Backpack – Review

By | November 7th, 2017|Lifestyle, Travel|

When I went to Europe last year, for what became The 2016 European Museum Tour with my cousin, I needed a new bag. Never one to just make a purchase randomly, I researched. I needed something that would be sturdy to survive cobblestone streets but could also be used as a backpack if I needed [...]

Things to Do in Paris that Aren’t Museums

By | November 1st, 2017|Activities, Travel|

Paris is Paris. By that I mean you don’t go to Paris to only stick yourself in museums. There are so many things to see and do in this amazing city. Sure there are the standard tourist sights, but there are also a few slightly different things that can still be touristy. Or maybe even [...]

A Layover in Guangzhou, China with China Southern

By | October 24th, 2017|Activities, Travel|

Last year I was reading emails when I saw one that said flights to Australia from Vancouver were something like $660 return. Turns out that was USD but still I jumped at the opportunity and booked myself a flight for $845 CND return. It meant I had two long haul flights with one stop each [...]

The 2016 European Museum Tour Continued in Paris

By | October 19th, 2017|Activities, Travel|

Europe is one giant tourist dream with so much to see and do everywhere you go. One of the best aspects of Europe is the history. There is so much of it, and while countries and cities continually modernize, they value their history and reuse it. Paris is no exemption. Palaces, hotels, train stations, all [...]

Cairns and the Surrounding Area in Australia

By | October 10th, 2017|Travel|

Having never been to a tropical weather location previously, I was quite shocked by my week in Cairns and the surrounding area. I thought I knew my body and understood it’s functions. The how and when of my body sweating. I did not. (Turns out I was visiting the area at the hottest time) I [...]

By | October 6th, 2017|Beauty, Subscription Box|

Thank you FabFitFun. Thank you for once again impressing me with your quarterly subscription box. The FabFitFun Fall 2017 box has a bit of a keep warm theme, depending on what you choose, because once again there were some options we were able to pick. I’m actually really enjoying this feature where we get to [...]

Visiting the Alice Springs Area – And The Cockroach That Won

By | August 14th, 2017|Travel|

When I booked my flight to Australia, I knew I was going to be there for Christmas. I was really looking forward to my very first warm one. Instead I got one that reminded me of Christmas in Vancouver. It was wet. The way things worked out, I ended up visiting the Alice Springs area [...]
