Snorkelling, Sailing & Paddleboards. Oh, my!

When you’re swimming in the pool bar with a fresh (and oh so delicious) piña colada from a smiling bartender, surrounded by beautiful people who you’ve just met but already feel like your best friends; it can feel impossible to get up and force yourself to do something other than relax. But when there are so many activities (not those ones!)…

Living the Butler Life

It’s back to life, back to reality in my world but the past four days have been the absolute best. We arrived at Sandals Montego Bay on Thursday afternoon, after passing through customs we were met by our butler who brought us beer and had a car ready to take us to the resort. PRIVATE CAR AND A BUTLER?! From…

When Travel Plans Change

As any frequent traveller knows you can’t guarantee anything and plans are often broken or at least altered, it’s all part of the fun. So when I received a call from my friends at Sandals Resorts letting us know that our trip was changing to a new location, I decided to go with it. I’m going on an epic trip…

Treat Yo Self, Today!

Today in honour of their 10th birthday The Ten Spot will be offering FREE (seriously!) quickie mani, pedi, and wax services to everyone who walks in the door from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. The only catch? You only get one totally and completely free service. It’s a tough life, isn’t it? If you’ve never visited The Ten Spot, it’s a…

Sandals Here I Come!

It’s no secret that I have been dreaming of flying away to the Bahamas to meet the swimming pigs! I even suggested that people start calling me ‘Bahama Mama’ which didn’t quite catch on (sad!). But was has been a kind of a secret, if you haven’t been paying attention to my Facebook and Twitter,  is that I’m heading to…

All you can eat & Drink… for the Children

Ten rock star chefs. Ten rock star local brewers. One exciting night featuring UNLIMITED food and drink samples. With all proceeds going to War Child. So, basically, I’m asking you to drink for the children. Your desire for delicious local brews paired with lip-smacking creations designed by some of the best chefs in Toronto will help children in war-affected communities…

Bucket List – Pig Beach

Crystal clear waters, over 2,000 islands and cays to explore, and pigs that swim! Travel bucket list, life bucket list, Christmas list, birthday list, the Bahamas are on my mind lately and not just because I think I’d enjoy it if people started calling me, “Bahama Mama!” (I like nicknames a lot, guys). Nestled in the too-beautiful-for-words waters of the…

Bucket List – TradeWinds

My travel bucket list is pretty much a map of the world but there are a few places and adventures that are on the top of my list; taking a luxury yacht charter with TradeWinds is definitely in the top five right behind taking a tour of lemur island (known by cartoon loving children and people not obsessed with lemurs…

Travel Deals: Myrtle Beach

I’ve never been to Myrtle Beach, the only Myrtle memories I have are being jealous of the kids headed to South Carolina in a loaded up mini-van with their families during March Break – I went to camp, it was less cool. Since then Myrtle Beach has been on my American cities bucket list, residual effects of my pre-teen fomo. With…

Seinfeld Pop-up bar Coming to TO!!

You, better believe it, buddy! This summer Toronto has a brand new pop-up bar, a pop-up bar about nothing. Rumour is you’ll even be given a bro and a pair of white Nike sneakers upon entry (I might have made that up). The pop-up bar is set to open with a launch party on July 15 somewhere near Dundas and Dufferin,…
