Cacao 70 – A Bit of Chocolate and Ice Cream Heaven

By | July 27th, 2018|Canada, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

So far this summer, soft ice cream appears to be my new favourite treat. Well, that and chocolate. But in all fairness chocolate has been a favourite a bit longer than just this summer. I’m trying to mix the two together now though which is new for me. In my search for ‘unknown to me’ [...]

Getting Around London – With A Few Basics to Help Plan

By | July 23rd, 2018|Europe, Travel|

London as a town, city, and major port was established by the Romans almost 2,000 years ago but settlements have been there for something like 6,000 years. To say London has experienced everything probably isn't even an exaggeration. It survived the plague, tyranny, many wars, and it has survived a lot of growing pains. It [...]

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Subscription Box Review

By | July 12th, 2018|Subscription Box|

I think I was even a bit more excited than normal about the FabFitFun Summer 2018 subscription box. Not only because I wasn’t as impressed with the Spring box as I normally am but also the first spoiler released was awesome. Then I received the email to customize my box and make my choices. Once [...]

Things to Do in Victoria, BC – Including a Few for December

By | May 30th, 2018|Activities, Canada, Food, Travel|

Between the drive and ferry rides, Victoria is only a few hours away from Vancouver, BC. So it is possible to do for a day trip. If you can though, it makes a wonderful weekend away. I find during the Christmas season places take on a magical feel to them with the special events and [...]

One of the many things I love about summer is all the festivals that are put on in the Lower Mainland. There are quite the variety too.

Soft Peaks Soft Ice Cream, Tantalizing Taste Buds with Surprises

By | May 14th, 2018|Canada, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

I have to admit the reason I tried Soft Peaks soft ice cream in Burnaby (conveniently located across the street from Metrotown) was because I saw they created a sundae style treat using Tim Tams as a topping. Tim Tams (two chocolate biscuits with chocolate cream icing between them and the entire thing is coated [...]

FabFitFun Spring 2018 Subscription Box Review

By | May 7th, 2018|Subscription Box|

Well, this was a first for me. The FabFitFun Spring 2018 subscription box was the first box I have received from them, that I was only about 60% happy with. Don’t get me wrong, the box was filled with great products, there were just more things I didn’t want than I was expecting. Oh well, [...]

Cookie Challenge of 2018 in the Vancouver Area

By | May 4th, 2018|Canada, Events, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

Over the years I have heard of different food and drink challenges taking place around the lower mainland but I never looked into them let alone participated. Until this year when I checked out the Vancouver Foodster website to see what he had going for 2018. There are a lot of different challenges offered throughout [...]

Mink Chocolates and the Best Hot Chocolate I Found So Far

By | April 12th, 2018|Canada, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

I don’t know what to tell you. Maybe it was the way the sun was shining that first time I visited. Or, it was the way the wet, cold snow pelted my face on my second visit. It could have been the way the rich, dark chocolate attacked my senses and my taste buds before [...]

Hot Chocolate Festival in Vancouver & All Year Treat Enjoyment

By | February 21st, 2018|Canada, 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 [...]
