Toronto’s Newest Water Park: Wet’n’wild

If you’re looking for a place to get wet and keep the kids busy this summer, you must visit Toronto’s newest water park,  Wet’n’Wild. A place for the entire family to swim, drink, eat and swim some more. Those of you who follow my Insta Stories must have had a glimpse of our fun day at the park. When it comes to amusement parks, whether it’s indoor or outdoor water parks are my favorite.  First, because there is nothing better than being in the water on a hot summer day. Second, because I am not a big fan of thrill rides. Insert all day spent at the lazy river. Read More »

Where To eat In Toronto: Kellys Landing

The Landing Cure

I love discovering new restaurants to eat at in the city. The food scene in Toronto is one of the best in the world.There is always somewhere new to go, something new to try. Last week, I was invited to taste the delicious food and drinks at Kellys Landing Bar Grill Hub located just a few feet away from the Union Station in downtown Toronto. Such a convenient spot for those of us who live outside of the city. The proximity of the restaurant to the Air Canada Centre and Rogers Centre also makes it the perfect place to grab a meal or enjoy pre-or-post-game entertainment. Read More »

Joe Fresh Plus Size Line Review

Joe Fresh extended line- Fall editionWhen I heard the news that Canadian clothing retailer, Joe Fresh was launching a plus size line or I should say extending their line for its fall collection, I was excited, to say the least. I have squeezed myself in many of their pieces in the past so the news that some of the new merchandises will go up to size 3x was absolute music to my ears.

As a visible fat woman, plus size, whatever you want to call it, it’s always a win when a brand decides to add a plus size line or better yet simply extend their original line. It’s an acknowledgment that women like me love fashion and deserve to look good. And….. nothing like a one stop shop, grocery, and clothes shopping will be completed together.

How To Grow Your Own Herb Garden

 We’ve been looking forward to getting outside this month to start gardening and enjoy our new lush green lawn in the backyard. Our plan was to start gardening in early mid-May, but due to my illness and somewhat longer winter that was not possible. I must admit that I do not know a lot about gardening and I have always been so envious of those who have a green thumb.  Since I partnered with Scotts Miracle Gro earlier this year to take care of our lawn, I thought this would be a great opportunity to start my own little herb garden. Cooking is a passion of mine, thus, I have spent a lot of time in the kitchen. There is something so satisfying and magical about walking out to grab herbs that you’ve have nurtured yourself. Read More »

3 SUMMER BEAUTY MUST HAVES

Raise your hand if you are not a fan of humidity. Yeah ! Me either. Those of us with very oily skin have it worse (insert shiny face). Going out in the morning and coming home at night looking like you’ve been dipped in shea butter. Not a good look.

Luckily, I found some amazing products to keep my skin happy during the hot summer months. The good news is all of them are available just a click away on your favorite of site Amazon.ca Read More »

A WEEKEND GETAWAY IN GREY COUNTY

Sometimes the best adventures and most beautiful places are just a few hours away from home. Most days, I dream about long walks on sandy beaches in the Caribbean or a day exploring the souks of Marrakech.  The truth is, right here in our backyard and just a few hours away from Toronto, lies an amazing place called Grey County.

Let’s be honest, traveling overseas or down south can be expensive and with the low Canadian dollar, it makes sense to stay close to home. If you’ve never been to this side of Ontario, I am sure you’ll consider a little weekend getaway after reading today’s post. Read More »

A beautiful cloudy day at the most beautiful location ever! I just came back from a press trip from Grey County Ontario. I never knew such a beautiful place existed just a couple of hours north of Toronto. It was a fun filled weekend and we stopped at numerous places around Grey County including Coffin Ridge winery. For someone who has never been to a winery, I was very excited to say the least. I will share my travel experience with you in the next coming weeks.
