For our one year wedding anniversary, I knew that I wanted to do something special. I’ve had a long standing goal of going to every province and territory in Canada. I’ve been to. For our one year anniversary, it was time to put another one under my belt. Being from Ontario, I’ve always been captivated by the east and west coast. (more…)
It’s no secret that ECCO is one of my favourite shoe brands. I have tons of shoes,and can’t resist adding a few more to my collection each season. Some shoes I only wear once or twice because they hurt too much. I can usually break in a pair of ECCO shoes after just one wear, and the quality is always excellent. (more…)
Have you ever wished that you could drive your dream car for more than just a test drive? There’s an app for that. Turo is like Airbnb but for cars! Car owners can rent out their vehicles to make some extra cash when they aren’t being used. Car fanatics, or someone looking for an alternative to renting a car through a big box service, can choose their make and model and book with a swipe. Before you can use the app, you need to sign up with a valid driver’s license. After that, we were able to search for the make and model of the car we wanted. Each car/owner also has reviews, so you can make sure previous renters have had a good experience. After selecting the car you want to rent and making the payment through the app pickup details are be provided. (more…)
Maple syrup, liquid gold…whatever you’d like to call it, it’s delicious. We’re lucky to live in Canada, the land of maple syrup. Virtually all maple syrup is produced in Canada. There’s a few pockets in the USA that make syrup as well, but the vast majority is here. Right now, we’re in the heart of maple syrup season. Muskoka is celebrating with a Maple Syrup Festival that runs from now until April 20th. I spent the weekend exploring Muskoka and trying delicious maple products. Thanks for hosting, Muskoka Tourism.
We spent the weekend at the Lone Pine Inn. I stayed in a patio suite that had beautiful picture windows, a cozy living room, and a full kitchen. It was like staying in a cozy cottage. We were greeted in the best possible way, with a 6 pack of local beer from Sawdust City Brewing. (The owners of the inn actually own the brewery as well.) (more…)
Spring may be around the corner, but snow isn’t going anywhere, at least not for a little bit. Why not enjoy the crisp cold air and fluffy white snow? I spent a weekend exploring Grey County.
Checking Into the Falls Inn
When we first arrived, we checked into the Falls Inn at Walter’s Falls. This beautiful Inn is located right beside Walter’s Falls, and many of the rooms have a great view. (more…)
When people say that there’s nothing to do in the winter, it baffles me. There’s so much to do! Whether you stay in Toronto or go a bit further to neighboring regions, you can definitely find a way to enjoy the winter.
For me, one of my winter goals for the last few years has been to go on a sleigh ride. Last month, in Grey County, my sleigh ride dreams came true! (more…)
One day, while at Pearson Airport for a press trip, a woman walked by me with a beautiful blue Heys suitcase. It was love at first sight! I admired it and went on my way. A month later, I was walking past Bentley and I noticed the suitcase in the window! It was fate.
I’m very particular about my suitcases. You’ll never catch me with a plain black suitcase. First of all, it’s really hard to spot on the luggage carousal. Second of all, I like to make a statement when I travel, and this is an easy way to do it. My current collection includes a polka dot suitcase, one covered with Canadiana illustrations and now, this one! (more…)
