Travelling from Vancouver to Victoria by Ferry

By | August 4th, 2017|Activities, Travel|

In all the years I've lived in Vancouver, I have never experienced travelling from Vancouver to Victoria by ferry, in July or August. I guess I always thought it would be too busy. I was missing out though. BC Ferries (website here) even has a really cool special feature just for the summer. Plus, there [...]

FabFitFun Summer 2017 Subscription Box – Review

By | July 5th, 2017|Beauty, Subscription Box|

The FabFitFun Subscription Box has so far not disappointed me. Actually the summer 2017 box is my third box and I have been very impressed with each of them. The value of products are always so much greater than the price of the box. For the first time, we were able to choose two of [...]

Swami’s Yoga Retreat – A Review of My Stay

By | June 12th, 2017|Activities, Lifestyle, Travel|

I climbed out of the car, stepped on the soft grass, felt the heat of the day in the air as it touched my skin, and suddenly the most incredible feeling of calm and peace settled over me. This was my immediate impression upon arrival of Swami’s Yoga Retreat (website). It didn’t leave me for [...]

I have LOVED grilled cheese sandwiches my entire life. I actually have two favourites in Vancouver that are my go to when I really need a fix.

Papier Mail – A New Subscription Box – CANCELLED

By | June 8th, 2017|Lifestyle, Subscription Box|

Unfortunatly Papier Mail Subscription Box cancelled their planned launch due to not enough pre-launch signups to make it work. I have this sort of weird love for paper products. I've had it since I was a small child. I can’t explain it and I have no idea when it began, but it’s still with me. [...]

Amsterdam – Where The 2016 European Museum Tour Began

By | June 5th, 2017|Activities, Fashion, Food, Travel|

One day at work I opened my emails, and there was a beaming one (maybe it was just beaming in my memory). It was from WestJet, offering a new route to London, England. There was also an amazing introductory sale price that worked out to be about $700.00 return after everything was calculated, for the [...]

Airbnb Accommodation: The Pros, Cons and Tips for Renting

By | May 30th, 2017|Travel|

Accommodation is probably the largest expense when you travel.  Hotels are the more expensive option and hostels or camping are obviously the cheaper options. Smack in the middle of those choices now though is Airbnb (website). Not only is Airbnb cost efficient but you choose the location, the accommodation type, the extras you have access [...]

My Favourite Romance Authors With Humour & Strong Females

By | May 16th, 2017|Lifestyle|

Being single means you have to either be a strategist and/or read minds. I play the ‘Easy as Pie’ level of Sudoku on my iPhone. So you know, I haven’t found someone permanent yet. I love men. I love the way they sometimes look. The way some of them walk. The way some of them [...]

My Two Day Road Trip to the Daintree Rainforest from Cairns

By | April 26th, 2017|Activities, Food, Travel|

First of all, let me give everyone a necessary piece of advice. Cairns is a tourist city. Everyone rents cars in Cairns. Don’t wait till you arrive to rent one, book it in advance. I had booked myself a place to stay in the Daintree Rainforest which is only accessible via car. I waited till [...]
