This artisan cheese festival is all weekend long, and tickets include tasty cheese samples, seminars and more! I can’t think of a better way to spend the first weekend in June, can you?

You’ll get a chance to meet over 40 artisan cheesemakers, enjoy cheese and wine pairings, and much more!

Get your tickets here and enjoy a cheesy weekend in the country.

 

Canada’s African & Caribbean Wedding Show

I’ve been enjoying being engaged, and attending a vast majority of wedding shows! I’ve attended small indie wedding shows, lavish Indian wedding shows and massive north American wedding shows. I’m really happy that there’s a Caribbean and African Wedding Show! I’ve been struggling to find a bridal hair dresser, and I know that I’ll be able to find vendors that can do my hair and much much more. Canada’s African & Caribbean Wedding Show is this Saturday April 1st at Daniel’s Spectrum. Tickets are $35, and includes:

  • a welcome glass of champagne
    50 elite exhibitors
    Two runway fashion shows (1pm and 4pm)
    Tropical music lounge with refreshments
    Fabulous door prizes

Cheap & Cheerful Winter Date Night Ideas

16593730_594329454775_1798260407_o

It’s starting to get a little bit brighter outside, and milder weather is definitely on the way! That being said, the Toronto winter weather has been known to return with a vengeance! Winter is definitely sticking around for the next few weeks.

I love being downtown all the time, but I am a sucker for an impulse buy. That bakery has a new matcha croissant? Sold. There’s a sale on a cute pair of shoes? Don’t mind if I do! Now that I’m saving up for a wedding and a condo, I need to stop these impulse buys. Loan & Go has some great tips on how to avoid impulse buys!

Another way I’m trying to save money is by going on thriftier date nights. There are lots of great cost effective ways in Toronto to still have fun, but save some cash. Here are some ideas!

Catch the Toronto Light Festival at the Distillery District. Not only is this totally free, but it’s romantic and tons of fun! My favourite is the coloured rings installation.

There’s something bright to look forward to during these dark winter months! The very first Toronto Light Festival has arrived in the city. Until March 12th visitors to the Distillery District can enjoy 21 light installations nightly until 11pm. The installations range from interactive to fun to awe inspiring. The festival is free, and they have several booths offering up warm bites and drinks. Visitors can find booths selling mulled wine, hot chocolate, soup and more. I checked out the festival, take a look at my photos! http://www.torontolightfest.com (more…)
