By | November 3rd, 2018|Lifestyle, Subscription Box|

The FabFitFun Fall 2018 Subscription Box was one I was really waiting for. I didn’t see any of the spoilers for it but once we were able to make our choices, I knew. I was really going to like the contents of the Fall 2018 box. The items that sold it for me were the [...]

By | October 20th, 2018|Canada, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

As part of my unexpected foodie year this year, I’ve been visiting different cafes, chocolate shops, ice cream shops, bakeries, and pretty much anything else that serves treats. While I’m trying places all over the Lower Mainland, downtown does have a lot of options. One of them is Thierry café and chocolate shop (website), pretty [...]

By | October 4th, 2018|Europe, Fashion, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

London is a massive city with so much to offer, it is impossible to list everything. But what I can do is list a few of the places where I have spent time shopping and eating in London. I can also try to share a bit of information on what is available and what you [...]

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’ [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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.

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
