By | April 21st, 2017|Australia, Canada, Europe, Fashion, Lifestyle, Travel|

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 [...]

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).

By | October 31st, 2016|Australia, Canada, Europe, Lifestyle, Travel|

Ahhhhh, the warm, sweet fragrance of Bourbon Vanilla. It is a subtle scent that makes you feel cozy and comfortable, but also that you are loved and safe. A clean scent that wraps you in a big hug. Coconut Verbena on the other hand reminds you of the hot sun on your face and warm [...]

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.

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 [...]
