Essentials: Scandinave Spa in Blue Mountain

“Great skin doesn’t happen by chance, it happens by appointment”


I did it. I finally realized my life long dream of receiving a rubdown at the Scandinave Spa last week. It was everything I imagined it would be & so much more! Andrei practically had to pull my nearly comatose body from the Eucalyptus Steam Room because there was no way in h-e-double hockey sticks that I was going to leave that place on my own free will. It was pure magic – everything from the massage to the saunas to the hot baths & EVEN the cold plunges (which yes I TOTALLY did… multiple times!) was absolute perfection. I would go back in a freakin’ heartbeat, but there are definitely some things that I would bring with me next time to enhance my Scandinave experience just that much more! (more…)

Canada Day Cottage Essentials

“If a Canadian falls in the forest & no one is around… does he/she still apologize?”


Ps. The answer is undoubtedly always yes. HAI there my fellow crazy Canucks! What are your plans to celebrate the big “150” this weekend? I personally plan on commemorating this special occasion by planting my pretty little keister in a Muskoka Chair lakeside, with a ceasar in one hand & a…. oh heck, who am I kidding – with a ceasar in the other one too… because obviously. Well, considering lakeside Northern escapes are kind of our jam here in the Great White North, I felt it apt to share a few of my favourite beach/dock/pool essentials – however I’ve tailored them slightly to accommodate Canada Day celebrations!!!! Enjoy, & have a happy Canada Day!!!!  (more…)

Airport Essentials

“Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly away”

Frank Sinatra

Folks… I am Big Easy bound for the long weekend, & I could NOT be more excited about it! Truth be told, New Orleans has always been on my “wanderlust” radar so when on of my recently ring’ed up girlfriends suggested we go for her Bachelorette, I was MORE than on board! Now because I have this utterly relentless need to share/document almost every minute detail of every event in my life… I naturally felt it necessary to share some of my NOLA airport essentials with all of you today! Which I’m sure many of you (I hope) will find useful considering the May Long Weekend is a biggie in the travel department!  (more…)

Drive-In Essentials

“Cinema is entertainment, & people go to the movies because they want to feel good & forget about everything”

Vincent Cassel

My boyfriend & I try to get to the drive-in at LEAST two times each summer! It’s one of our absolute favourite things to do this season [aside from heading up North every possible chance we can get!!!!], & if you’ve never experienced the magic that is a drive-in… I seriously suggest that you give it a go! I’m obsessed with watching movies under the stars, I’m obsessed with the glorious scent of the vintage concession stand, & I’m obsessed with the 1960’s commercials of animated hot-dogs & bags of popcorn dancing frivolously about the screen; signifying the end of intermission! I’M OBSESSED WITH IT ALL. So in honour of “nostalgia month” here on HHH, I’m listing off my go-to, drive-in essentials! (more…)

The HHH Beach Bag Essentials

Post by, “The Contributors of HHH”:

“Life is Better at the Beach”


There is seriously nothing worse than getting all the way to the beach, only to realize that you’ve forgotten an essential – personally, I cannot deal without sunglasses… squinting does not look cute on me. I therefore thought that it would be a fun idea for the HHH team to put together a list of our “Top Beach Bag Essentials” (with some health tips thrown in of course)! ENJOY! (more…)
