Score big with brunch at Score on King

Caesar cocktail lovers eagerly welcomed the Score on King to Toronto. This new pub hails from the west coast, and are known for their massive, over the top Caesars. However, this neighborhood spot is much more than a few fancy drinks. The Score serves up pub food with a twist and huge portions.The menu that they serve is identical to their Vancouver location. When they aren’t serving brunch, they have an all day menu with nachos, fried chicken, avocado fries, pulled pork mac n’ cheese, sushi sliders and other staples. (more…)

Get up and out the door this summer with UP! pants

I’m so excited that we’re heading into warmer weather. It really doesn’t feel like it, but I promise that it’s right around the corner! Last week we had a warm 20+ degree day, and I took the chance to wear my new UP! pants.

Bratwurst, beer and bites at the new Steam Whistle Biergarden

 

Bremner has been changing over the years. First we got the Ripley’s Aquarium, then the amazing Rec Room, and now, delicious eats. Steam Whistle Brewing has been in the brick roundhouse on Bremner for a very long time. In 1999 Steam Whistle took on a lease at the roundhouse to open a factory on-site. The rest is history. Steam Whistle has been brewing up fresh pilsner every since. In 2018 they expanded their operations to include another brewery. Now only 40% of Steam Whistle beer is brewed in Toronto. The rest is brewed in Vaughan.

Don’t be sad, this has freed up some space for some pretty cool things, including their new 2,500 square feet European inspired Biergarden. The restaurant is decked out in green and white with glowing neon signs and fresh plants. It has a very casual vibe, diners go to the green shipping container to place their orders. The goal was to create a traditional beirgarden that reflects the beauty of the ones in Munich, Germany. The restaurant can seat 100 people in bench style seating. When it warms up, 50 people will be able to dine on the patio.

Fresh Summer Scents

Summer and fall have the absolute best scents. When I think about summer, I think lemons, mandarin and other fresh, bright fruits.

This summer, I’m trying a new scent: Nest Wild Poppy. Poppies are such beautiful flowers, but I’ve never thought of them in a fragrance. That being said, I’m totally in love with their Wild Poppy Eau de Parfum. It’s an intoxicating mix of pear, raspberry, and apricot with hints of Himalayan jasmine and Rose de Grasse. I didn’t realize how stunning poppies were until watching the behind the scenes video below!

Ever since I made the switch, I’ve been getting lots of compliments and questions about where I got my perfume. It’s my official scent of the summer.

As for my home, I’m ushering in fruity scents with my Velvet Peardiffuser and candle. This lush scent is gentle and refreshing.

This understated fragrance blends velvety Anjou pear and crisp apple with bright, crushed lemon leaves. Hints of peony accented with white musk and amber round out this scent, creating its lush, flavorful appeal.

Nest fragrances are available at Sephora.
