Amsterdam – Where The 2016 European Museum Tour Began

By | June 5th, 2017|Activities, Europe, Fashion, Food, Lifestyle, 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 [...]

My Two Day Road Trip to the Daintree Rainforest from Cairns

By | April 26th, 2017|Activities, Australia, Food, Lifestyle, 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 [...]

By | April 8th, 2017|Food, Lifestyle|

Trying out the SodaStream machine not only allowed me the convenience of fizzy water whenever I wanted it in the comfort of my own home, it also helped curb my sugar cravings when I gave up sugar & sweeteners. When I was told by my Naturopath that, for my health, I had to cut sugar [...]

Melbourne – Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate, a few things, and oh yah, Transportation

By | March 18th, 2017|Australia, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

Melbourne is a big city that has history, art, shopping, food, architecture, culture, coffee and chocolate. The one thing that stood out for me walking around Melbourne is the fact that there is so much chocolate. So very much chocolate. I’m not normally a big chocolate fan but even I fell into the rabbit hole [...]

By | November 28th, 2016|Food, Lifestyle|

I’m not going to lie to you. I just ate almost half the container of this Roasted Garlic and Dill Hanes Hummus (click here for the website) with potato chips. It was amazing! And I didn’t even feel like I was eating a healthy form of junk food, it was just so very good! I [...]

I was at the car dealership the other day with my S'well Stainless Steel Insulated Water Bottle (website) when the receptionist told me she’s been seeing everyone at school with one.

I’m pretty sure if you have lived in North Burnaby for any length of time, or even in other parts of the Lower Mainland, you have heard of The Valley Bakery (check out their web-site here).

I was out and about today, stopped at Starbuck’s, and was checking my Facebook while waiting for my half sweet, coconut milk, hot chocolate when I saw a post about the Luke’s Diner pop-ups to promote the new four episode season of Gilmore Girls coming on Netflix November 25th. I figured I would read it [...]

Some Healthy Chocolate Items (not an oxymoron)

By | October 26th, 2014|Food, Lifestyle|

A few years ago I was sitting on the couch watching TV. It was close to Christmas, pouring rain outside and I was bored. So I did what everyone does in today’s society. I checked my Facebook news feed to see what people were doing. Don’t lie to yourself. We all do it. We’re standing [...]
