My Favourite Things This Week

I live a pretty balanced life for the most part.  As hard as I work, I take just as much time for myself (gasp!  I know right - so selfish!), for every timbit (or box) there is clean and healthy eating and for every day that I sit and work at my computer you can be...

My Favourite Things This Week

Like clockwork, every few months I hit a wall of exhaustion complete with a side order of "illness" usually in the form of aches, pains, fever, cold - you know, the works.  It always arrives the minute that I let my guard down after pushing through whatever it is that...

One of a Kind Show: My Favourite Finds

The Spring One of a Kind Show in Toronto has officially kicked off and runs until Sunday, April 2, 2017 at the Enercare Centre, Exhibition Place.  I know - as soon as you hear "the Ex" you instantly start thinking all things delicious like Tiny Toms and deep fried...

My Favourite Things This Week

Let me be entirely honest with you (get ready to hit the repeat button) - I never intended to become a Blogger.  My vision was to actually bring together women, do amazing things for great causes and basically surround myself with inspiring beings.  We sometimes have...

Spring Vibe: Creating More Space

"Just beneath the clutter - the stuff, is an Oprah "ah ha" moment waiting for you in the form of emotional space", Susan Elstob Spring is about rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal and re-growth (not a huge fan of this word but you get the point).  It is the one season of...

My Favourite Things This Week

A few years ago (ah hm, my reference point for just about anything that was at least a decade ago) I went to a fundraising tea event in Toronto.  There was something about it that had be completely intrigued.  From the way the day was laid out, to the food that just...

The Things I Love

Happy Valentine's Day!  Yep, there are some of you out there today who are rolling their eyes with the mere thought of getting "sucked into" a revenue-generated holiday.  Here's the thing, I think the idea of Valentine's Day is a good one - and one that you should...

My Favourite Things This Week

Well, this week has reminded me yet again that although I love the idea of Winter, I really only love it up until New Years.  I'm a believer that as of January 2 we should start to transition right into Spring kicking those snow pants, salt and dirty boots to the curb...

My Favourite Things This Week

Every Friday am I grab my phone and start to flip through pictures from the week, like a re-cap of sorts starting to highlight all of my favourite things, moments and experiences.  This has become such a routine that the kids get in on it and they start to talk about...

Bringing an End to the Mom Wars

It is a feeling we are faced with as moms every day. You know the one, its called judgement. The judgement that we put on ourselves and in turn, the judgement that we put on other moms, thus creating a perfectly set stage for the Mom Wars to ensue. The thing is, none...

My Favourite Things This Week

I've decided that I like winter up until January 1 - and then, much like the Christmas Tree it all needs to go away until next season.  Yes I agree that there is magic and beauty with the wintery season - but only when its attached to a holiday cocktail, presents...

Gingerbread Cookies

Don't get TOO excited - these cookies are not to be confused with our other famous cookies that we make a la the Starbucks Ginger Molasses Cookies which will remain in the vault (you know, like a Disney classic) but they are however the ones that we use for all of our...
