Have a look at this cute owl trio I picked up from my local Winners. They’re a perfect summer touch in fresh white. And they’re pretty smart too, reminding me to see no evil, hear no evil, say no evil. That’s good advice from these wise guys.
We had a chance to catch a show at the legendary BB Kings Blues and Jazz Bar, NYC the other night. It was pouring rain out, so the idea of staying in was kind of appealing. The Rising was performing, a well known cover band for Bruce Springsteen, one of my all time favorite […]
Outdoor movies, music and food – sounds like the perfect summer night out. In its third year, Open Roof is a not for profit outdoor film festival whose mission is to highlight independent filmmakers and artists from Canada and around the world and to provide a great way to enjoy summer nights with friends. Have […]
If you have hair, you need to get Kevin Murphy Powder Puff Volumising Powder. I was introduced to this cute little pink ball by my twins – the hairdressing twins who have been styling my hair for years. Although only one of them actually cuts my hair, I tend to lump them in together since […]
Another not to be missed locale in Williamsburg is Bedford St. This uber-cool destination is the perfect place to take a stroll, have a drink, eat a great meal or explore the many vintage shops and street vendors. Have a look and make sure it makes your Brooklyn to-do list. streetside vintage local eateries […]
huge subway mural Great weather in NYC this week, perfect for our favorite pastime here – walking around and exploring the city. No matter how many times we get the chance to visit, there is always something new going on around the corner. The other day we ventured out to Williamsburg, Brooklyn. So much […]
Today we have a guest post by the lovely and clever IsaStar, who is giving us her teen perspective on the new Spider-Man movie. Do you have kids? Want to know how they think? Read what IsaStar says in her great stream-of-teen-consciousness style. We don’t want to insult all the professional movie critics out there, […]
I had a chance to check out David Chang’s Williamsburg outpost of milk bar yesterday. What a brilliant concept. Anything that combines the childhood love of cereal, milk and decadent desserts is right up my alley.
Look what my dad gave me today – it’s a garlic bouquet! Hand delivered by my dad himself, along with other goodies from his garden. He actually wrapped some twine around the garlic and tied a bow. If you know my dad, you would know that this might be a once in a lifetime thing […]
IPhone IPhone IPhone!!!!!!! Happy dance! Jumpy claps! This is the start of a new era for me here at Lifeovereasy. Blogging on the go! Instagram! Videos! Sooooo sexy looking. And sleek. Such whiteness! More happy dance moves that my kids would be embarrassed by! I have been waiting soooooo long!!!!!! I just need to take […]
Here’s a little snippet of the beach scene in Nice, France. Just hanging out on a regular weekday on the main beach strip on the seaside part of the city. Note, I didn’t add the music, the beach comes with it’s own DJ. Wish you were here – seriously!
Sounds decadent, non? Even a little naughty. Really, it’s all about a walk in the park. In Japan they call it shinrin-yoku, the practice of spending a short, leisurely time in a forest setting and “taking it all in”. Everyone is familiar with the great feeling you have after a walk in a beautiful forest. […]
I love old movies. When I was a little girl, I used to get up early on Sunday mornings and creep down to the basement before anyone else was awake to watch the “vintage movie of the week”. I sat enthralled, falling in love with old movie icons, incredible fashion, gorgeous set design and nostalgic […]
I was out for a walk today in the east end’s Beach neighbourhood and stopped in at Nesters, a delightful home décor shop that I have been meaning to check out for a while now. They offer a great blend of vintage and traditional, with a dose of modern and rustic thrown in, and show […]
Garlic is serious business in my family. When to plant, when to pull, where to get the best planting cloves, how its growing, when to cut the tops – I could go on. It’s a constant topic of conversation in my family (check out my post from earlier this year when the garlic first sprouted […]
I am still a little speechless. After watching last night’s performance of War Horse from the second row, I felt almost immersed in the story, and I could not believe how much emotion a puppet could generate. For those of you who haven’t yet had the privilege of seeing the show, it tells the story […]
what I wake up dreaming about on Saturday morning I love going to the Brickwork’s Market on a Saturday morning. It is one of my favorite farmer’s markets in the city and I always do my rounds to visit my favorite farmers and pick up my favorite things (there are many, stay tuned for more […]
Real tomatoes. From my garden. Actually, just from 2 pots I have on the patio, but still… WE HAVE TOMATOES! All thanks to Costco and the amazing deal I found there of giant tomato plants, complete with tomato cage and several large green tomatoes that just needed a tiny bit of TLC to ripen, all […]
I was introduced to this drink by one of my oldest friends, Vania. Vania is a Euro-phile. Or a European-ophile. Or something like that. Basically she spends lots of time in Europe, hanging around cool people. She probably discovered this drink while sitting in some outdoor café chatting with a soccer star. Or with a […]
pizzas waiting their turn for the oven – what a lineup! I’ve just returned from a long trip and upon my return believe it or not, all I wanted to do was cook. Yup, I will confess I did shed some serious tears while in Europe – at a couple of markets on more than […]
I tried these tonight on a whim while I was bbq’ing for dinner and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I’ve been crushing on jalapeño poppers, but these are a much healthier and simpler alternative. These apps are super yummy and can be made in a flash.
Our canoe was the first possession my husband and I bought together, back in the early days before we were married, before kids and responsibilities and mortgages, when we were still young and foolish. We were driving up north along Highway 28, saw it for sale on the side of the road, and pulled a […]
Wishing you some good friends, good tunes and good times on this Canada Day. Cheers!
