[Win it!] $50 Shoppers Drug Mart Gift Card & more!

Valentine’s Day remains my favorite holiday. I make a point to break out all of my heart patterned items in preparation (skirts, tights, socks, purses, water bottle, hairclips….hmm, could this be problem? Nah. Never.)

What’s not to love about a holiday devoted to love and chocolate? I plan to spend this Valentine’s Day devouring fondue and watching Zoolander. I’m happy to kick off my week of giveaways with Shoppers Drug Mart and Quo!

One reader will win a Valentine‘s Day Gift Basket from Shoppers Drug Mart!

Win it!

Indulge someone special with a basket of treats from Carnaby Sweet and a $50 Shoppers Drug Mart gift card so she can shop for new beauty products to fill her Quo Cosmetics ‘love’ makeup bag. (more…)

Let’s Go to the Ex…Win Tickets!

The Canadian National Exhibition opens this Friday, August 17th until September 3rd! Going to this local fair is a yearly tradition for me. Here are some of my highlights for the 2012 CNE!

The Sky Ride

As a lover of the Ferris wheel, I’m really excited for the new Sky Ride! The Sky Ride is new for 2012 and is 40 feet above the ground. It carries you across the CNE grounds and kinda looks like a ski lift. You can ride it for free with a Play All Day pass or buy individual tickets.

Food at the Ex!

The Toronto Star Food Building is always a huge draw. So many places to eat, so many different cultures all in one building. This year comes with some new surprises. You can try deep-fried apple fritters, Dutch Krokets (a fried roll with mashed potatoes and beef with rice or noodles, coated in breadcrumbs and deep-fried), and finish off with some new cupcakes from Sweetness bakery.

Last but not least….The weekend of August 24 to 26, the CNE will host a huge food truck rally just inside the historic Princes’ Gates. The Food Truck Rally will feature Food Trucks including: Blue Donkey Streetery, Buster’s Sea Cove, Canuk Pizza Truck, Fidel Gastro, Food Dudes, Gourmet B1tches, Hank Daddy’s Barbeque, Gourmet Gringos, Hogtown Smoke, Mike’s Dog House, Per Se Mobile, Pretty Sweet, Rollin’ on the River, Roman Chariot, Stuft, Sweetness Bakery, Texas Tornado, The Urban Smoke, Tiny Toms.

Of course, there are many more things to do at the Ex. Catch a musical performance, nab a deal from the various buildings or win a prize from a games booth. Thanks to the CNE, I’m giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets to the Ex! All you have to do is follow the instructions below, and enter before Friday August 10th.
