2017 Fall & Halloween Bucket List

“The only thing getting lit this weekend are my fall scented candles”

Pinterest

Okay, I know, I know.…. I’ve done literally a MILLION Bucket List posts on both this blog & the Ambrosia Blog but truth be told I’m kind of OBSESSED with them! SUE ME. Also, to be honest, this week has been a bit taxing in terms of deadlines & workloads so a short n’ sweet Bucket List blog post is literally just about ALL I have time for, & can handle this week! So thanks in advance for bearing with me my lovely little readers! I promise to be a tad bit more innovative & creative next week 🙂 (more…)


Haliburton Life – “Get off the Dock”

“Wander without reason or purpose”

Pinterest

I am a total creature of habit, with a proclivity toward the mundane & a staunch devotion for anything involving routine. It’s honestly just my jam. I wake up each morning, hop on the subway, start the 9-5 work day, walk the hour & a half home – fittin’ in that fitness, obvs – & then proceed to work on the blog or any outstanding freelance pieces that are seemingly always on the go these days. On repeat… 5 days a week.

Galaxy Photoz – The Uber of Photography

“Photographs open doors into the past, but they also allow a look into the future”

Sally Mann

I think it’s safe to say that me being neurotic about photos would be a gross understatement – heavy emphasis on both “gross” and “understatement”. And when the time eventually comes where I’ll have to book a photographer for some of life’s major milestones… I can’t even imagine, nor do I want to, the amount of stress & annoyance I will inevitably place upon both myself & those nearest & dearest to my heart. Looking for a photographer within your budget, taste & availability is HARD, so when I was approached by Leanne Ferguson, founder of the new Canadian based, photography app Galaxy Photoz Inc to collaborate, I knew that I immediately had to accept! Why? Because the service that this particular app provides will literally save my future self & the poor souls that will have to deal with me, a whole HECK of a lot of grief! (more…)


2017 Restaurant Trends

“I just don’t want to look back & think… I could have eaten that

Pinterest

Okay so, to be quite frank, as of this past Sunday I had absolutely ZERO planned for the blog this week…. like literally nadda. Insert: semi, slight panic attack. That was until my grandparents took myself & Andrei to this outrageously delicious restaurant called Paradise Farms Bistro for brunch. Have you ever been? Well if NOT, you should really go ASAP because it is freakin’ amazing, & seeing as how this month is dedicated entirely to Forecasting 2017, I thought that it would be rather fitting to profile this magical bistro as part of a “Restaurant Trend” post for the upcoming year! Problem solved… whew! 😉 (more…)


Halloween Themed Walks & Runs in Ontario

“It’s as much fun to scare as to be scared”

Vincent Price

Call me crazy, but I LOVE being scared! In fact horror movies & Gothic literature are my absolute JAM… during my stint at Western University, I even enrolled in a few elective courses specializing in this very genre! So when Halloween rolls around, I completely immerse myself into all things horror. I therefore found it appropriate to also incorporate a little spooky, festive fun into my fitness routine… & yours! Below I’ve compiled a list of some Halloween themed walks, runs & hikes across Ontario to help keep you active during this ghoulish month!

Best Beaches in Ontario

“A little sand between your toes always takes away your woes”

– Unknown

We’re nearly at the end of our “beach-themed” month of May & how could I NOT include a post all about the actual beaches themselves?! SO I tried to do a quick roundup of some of my favourite beaches in Ontario! (more…)
