We had a great time last night at the Opening Night Preview Party for The Artist Project, a 4 day art fair at the Queen Elizabeth Building, Exhibition Place. Music, Absolute cocktails, gourmet nibbles, transvestites and girls in neon hair helped create a great vibe while we toured the show. This juried event showcases over […]
One of my secret food addictions is the sweet potato fries at Fresh. Maybe not so secret since I have been dragging my family there to eat for years just to indulge my cravings (although I don’t really have to drag them because they love Fresh’s food like I do!) I always have these fries […]
Here’s a new beauty product we can’t get enough of. Sugar Tinted Lip Treatments help protect and nourish your lips while leaving a sheer blush of colour. I have the
While flying through Zurich last year, my husband stumbled across these exquisite Swiss gems and surprised us with a box. They have since become one of our absolutely favourite desserts in the world. The hubby has been back once more since then so we were able to get another taste of the
I love “accidental” traditions, things you start doing without much thought that end up creating lasting and meaningful memories. The Playmobil Advent Calendar is a great example. I happened to find one
My husband is originally from Colombia, so we are always on the lookout for authentic Colombian food which is not always that easy to find. We stumbled across one bakery/restaurant in Montreal that is fabulous for serving authentic Colombian dishes and have fallen in love with one specific specialty. We can’t visit the city […]

I love Golla bags and have acquired a couple over the years. My camera bag and a computer messenger bag are just a few of the Golla products we have purchased in the past. Despite the price tag, we love the contemporary and geeky designs from the Scandinavian based company. Imagine my delight when I […]
BabyCakes NYC is an award-winning , gluten-free and vegan bakery in New York. Proprietor Erin McKenna has been kind enough to share her secrets for delicious and health conscious baking in her first book, BabyCakes, that was published in 2009. The recipes are mostly gluten-free and sugar-free, but more importantly
I’m always on the lookout for lunch inspirations and better lunch solutions. It’s hard enough to make a brown baglunch daily, and it sometimes seems impossible to change it up and make it yummy too. I love to make hearty salads
The best part of our recent visit to Harrods was browsing through the new Boulangerie and Patisserie section in the Food Halls. This department only just opened in September, so our timing was
I have written before about my ongoing love affair with kitchen accessories (for that matter kitchen anything) and this is no exception. Every time I go on a trip, one thing I always come back with is a little reminder of the local cuisine. Some time ago, my husband, (then boyfriend) and I traveled to […]
I am a Winners junkie. I literally get a rush every time I find a great deal there, which tends to be a little too often. This past month they have started to stock their boot selection (another addiction) and I spent some time perusing a couple of my favourite local Winners for my winter […]
Despite hearing that the Food Halls at Harrods are over the top, I was totally unprepared for the sight as I wandered in. I kept expecting Willy Wonka to pop out. The huge choice, quality, and variety of foods
Afternoon tea at the Ritz is a must for anyone visiting London. Reservations are hard to come by for the traditional time slot of 3-5 pm, so make sure to book early. We were happy to take an
Wandering into the food stalls area of Camden Lock Market, we were overcome with a sudden urge to eat. And eat and eat! There were piles of
Shoes, bags, vintage, goth, band t-shirts, and lacy clothing – it’s all there, and more. Wander around the maze of
Camden Market, one of London’s best known market areas, is a great place for a weekday stroll. It’s really a collection of markets spread out over one area. We had a great time browsing through the stalls away from the chaotic weekend crowds. It’s gritty and colourful, with a great
The first thing we did when we landed in London was hit up the Saturday market on Portobello Road in Notting Hill. This 300 year old market is a London institution and a well known tourist destination. There are many great markets in
I am a big fan of Italian pop music legend Zucchero, and as much as I hate to date myself, have been since high school. As a matter of fact, after so many (uh.. hmmm…) years, I used my fav Zucchero song from high school at my wedding. It was a delightful experience to finally […]
