Summertime… ladies, it’s time for lighter wallets and larger waists! Can I get a WOOT WOOT!! This summer’s Toronto food festival circuit is bigger and better than ever with a ton of food truck fests, street fests, beer and wine fests, and rib fests. The only thing that these festivals share in common is the love of all things edible – but just like the city itself, Toronto festivals showcase the unique food palettes and culinary talents of chefs and restaurants that we have to offer. Don’t expect the same food at each fest – each draws on differing tastes from across our culturally diverse city!

Summer baby? Stop complaining about your birthday. If you’re one of the lucky few that are able to celebrate your birthday in the summer in Toronto, I envy you. You really do not have any justification to complain. Zip. Nada. As a January baby, my choices for birthday venues are extremely limited and usually require hand and boot warmers.
Toronto’s weather has been all over the map lately. We just can’t seem to settle down and get good and hot days in a row! The weather teases us with one or two days of sunshine and then turns cloudy, cold, and miserable the next. Last week we got a couple of true summer days, and as true Torontonians, Jessica and I made the most of it by wearing sun dresses and claiming a couple of seats on a patio for a working lunch. Then we rounded up the crew for even more patio time at the Porch for after work drinks. Patio life!
No trip to Orlando is complete without a visit to the happiest place on Earth! Disney World in May is hot hot hot. The temperature soared to 36C (97F for the yanks!) and the sun was stronger than anything we get in Toronto. Comfort and style are the two key ingredients when it comes to planning a Disney World outfit. Jessica and I kept our outfits basic but we made sure we had a few twists to keep things on trend and super cute.
Have you ever been to Celebration, Florida? It’s pretty much, well, the perfect place for a celebratory dinner when you visit Orlando. Jessica and I (with the hubs and hubs-to-be) met up with our family for a quick trip down south and a bit of a family reunion. Orlando is pretty much a touristy fam-jam dream. Big old chain restaurants full of families, minivans and kids line every road around Disney, Celebration is our go-to for a more grown-up night out.
