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 [...]

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, Europe, 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 [...]
