There are only two reasons this girl gets excited for a Tuesday in the year. The first, half-price Tuesday movies, and second, PANCAKE TUESDAY! A.K.A Shrove Tuesday, A.K.A Mardi Gras, A.K.A Fat Tuesday. You get the picture. It’s a day when all the stars align, and we are shamelessly allowed to dig in, dig deep, and pig out, with no ragrats!

Hello lovelies! Have you ever been to afternoon tea or high tea? It’s quite a big deal across ‘the pond’. In fact, one of our dreams is to go to a good old fashioned High Tea in London town. Until we have the opportunity to visit the UK (hopefully soon!) we satisfy our cravings for big cuppas‘, buttery flaky scones, clotted cream and lashings of jams in Toronto. In fact, by the looks of the number of local bakeries and restaurants that are launching new versions and varieties of scones, Toronto is becoming a mini-London! I’m certainly not complaining!
Hurrah! This past long weekend had us all jumping for joy as temperatures climbed to 12 degrees in the downtown core. As soon as it’s warm enough to start wearing cute clothes again, Lauren and I get a serious craving for patios and spring-time walks in the city.
After a very indulgent Valentine’s Day, Jess and I wanted to get back on the right track with a good clean lunch. We went in search of somewhere new in Toronto that would offer a quick healthy lunch on a busy day. We found a hidden treasure – Xo Bisous!
Have you ever heard of this day? Unless you are a big Parks and Recreation fan, the answer is probably no. Galentine’s Day is a holiday Amy Poehler’s character created that occurs every year on Feb. 13, the day before Valentine’s Day. On this day, you celebrate the female friendships you have in your life… obviously the best day of the year.
Weekday dinner planning can be tough. Most days I spend my commute home taking a mental inventory of what ever is left in my fridge and trying to find a yummy, healthy, easy, quick, fresh recipe on pinterest for dinner. It’s a tall order. One of my boyfriend’s favourite meals is Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps inspired by the awesome Gordon Ramsay. This was one of the first recipes we cooked together! Since then, we’ve adjusted and customized the recipe to make it perfect for us. Now I want to share it with you guys!
Valentine’s Day is upon us once again! Hurrah! For most ladies (and gents) with a special someone, Valentine’s Day matters. The fact that V-Day matters really isn’t debatable my darlings. For some, February 14th is just another day, but for others, Valentine’s Day is the best day of the year to say “I love you” in a special way.
