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 [...]

VIM & VIGR Compression Socks – Most Unique Pattern & Review

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

When I flew to Europe last year I noticed my black compression socks were stretched and no longer in their original shape. They didn’t have all of the elasticity left in them. I knew I needed to get myself a new pair for flying to Australia and New Zealand. Obviously I needed a pair in their [...]

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 [...]

Ohhhh Melbourne. I’m not sure what I expected but being able to do so much for free sure wasn’t in my mind. Melbourne is a big city that has history, art, shopping, food, architecture, culture, coffee and chocolate. Oh so much chocolate.

Castlemaine, the Small City with a Big Heart

By | January 3rd, 2017|Australia, Events, Travel|

Before I left Canada the only thing I knew about Castlemaine was that a longtime friend from my hometown lived there with her husband. Now I know that it is a small city, in a lovely part of the country, where the gold rush happened, and amongst other little towns that all offer wonderfully friendly [...]

Canberra, Australia or CANburra to Australians

By | December 13th, 2016|Activities, Australia, Travel|

Wow! I wasn’t sure what to expect from Canberra because you don’t hear much about it other than the fact that it is the capital of Australia, but it was an absolute delight. The people were so very friendly and helpful, even if it was because, like I was told, I have an accent. Canberra [...]

S’well Stainless Steel Insulated Water Bottle

By | November 28th, 2016|Australia, Canada, Europe, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

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 interpreted that to mean, I had to tell her how wonderful it was. And it is wonderful. I bought the S'well stainless-steel insulated [...]

The Valley Bakery is Worth Your Wait and Your Walk

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). It was even in the locally shot VIFF movie I attended (and reviewed here) called Marrying the Family. If [...]

Spongelle My New Favourite Shower Accessory

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 [...]

Vancouver International Film Festival 2016 – Movies

By | October 9th, 2016|Activities, Canada, Events, Travel|

The Vancouver International Film Festival is in the process of its 35th year right now and it is going smashing, in my eyes.  Normally my schedule conflicts with the schedule of the movies at VIFF, that I want to see, and I am left feeling as though I missed out and I want more.  This [...]
