#LoveAHeart 4

It’s almost here, #LoveAHeart 4! I never could have imagined that an event that started as an idea in a coffee shop would last four years and raise more than $30,000.00 for The Heart & Stroke Foundation. It’s been an amazing ride and I can only hope that it lasts for many, many more years. This year, as always, we’ll…

When NOT to Tweet…

This morning I woke up, hit snooze, wandered to the shower 10 minutes later than I needed to and eventually made it out the door; a completely mundane morning that I was able to enjoy because many years ago men and women put on uniforms and fought for what they believed in. As a social media strategist/community manager/citizen of the…

Michael’s on Simcoe

Finding a dating spot in the city can be impossible, sure we’ve all got our favourite spots but finding somewhere that is the perfect mix of romance and good food is never easy. Last week I joined several other Toronto bloggers and media folk at Michael’s on Simcoe for the launch of their new menu and after an incredible meal…

Soya Skin

Thanks to the team at Tdot TV and their unbelievable TIFF lounge last month I was introduced to Soya Boutique. Soya is a skin care brand developed by former model, and downright stunner, Melani Chong. Melani worked as a model for many years and found that the frequent travel had a terrible effect on her skin, so she started making her…

Ice Ice Amish, Baby!

On Tuesday I headed to a special pre-screening of DIY Network’s new show, Vanilla Ice Goes Amish. Yep, that’s a for real show and that’s really the name. I went assuming that I would probably enjoy mocking Vanilla Ice being ridiculous and, hopefully, rapping about the difficulties of Amish life; I left with an appreciation for the Amish people and…

#TDotTV Lounge Experience

This weekend was all #TIFF all the time, seriously guys it was amazing and exhausting all at once. I usually work TIFF because my clients often sponsor events and lounges but this year I got to do a little TIFFing on my own; I hit the CFC BBQ, a Hollywood Reporter Party, the Melissa DiMarco suite, the Mongrel Media party…

#TDotTVLounge

How excited am I for TIFF? Very. Seriously a lot. ALL OF THE EXCITEMENT. I love how Toronto comes alive during the festival, I love the fashion, I love the energy but most of all I love that my city becomes the thing of legends and stories. On Saturday I’ll be hitting up my first TIFF gifting lounge thanks to the fine folks…

#DLTCanada

In a post cronut burger world, some brands still aren’t afraid to have a little fun with food or at least Taco Bell isn’t afraid to. Today Taco Bell Canada announced the launch of the Doritos Locos Taco, if you’ve been absent from the internet for the past year the Doritos Locos Taco is a taco shell made out of…

#MeetMotoX

Yesterday evening I joined several friends at the #MeetMotoX launch party for the all-new Moto X from Motorola. I’m a huge fan of Motorola and Android, last year I was gifted a Motorola RAZR at a similar event and I still use it to this day. I’ve gotten in more than one fight with friends and Apple fanboys alike about…

Facebook Listens… No Really!

Today Facebook announced that promotions on brand pages no longer have to be administered via an app! Woot! This is great news and I may have definitely sent an all staff encouraging my team members to rejoice and toast things with libations. In other news I’m incapable of announcing anything in any way other than the most dorky of ways.…
