Foodie Friday – Where I’ve Been

I took a break from blogging but hat doesn’t mean I took a break from eating and exploring the city (two of my favourite things). Recently I’ve been to iHalo Krunch, Sud Forno, Ricarda’s, and Baro. After seeing black and purple ice cream on my Instagram feed for months, I decided to see if myContinue reading “Foodie Friday – Where I’ve Been”

Seeking Value

After watching a minimalism documentary on Netflix and rereading The Minimalists first book, I’ve become obsessed with the role things and people play in my life. If something or someone doesn’t add value to my life, what’s the point of keeping it around? I’d been playing around with the idea of getting off of InstagramContinue reading “Seeking Value”

Foodie Friday – The Buccella’s go to Batch

Last week Alex and I headed to Batch located on Victoria Street in Toronto.  Alex happened to find them after Googling best brunch in Toronto. It was a beautiful morning so we took our time and enjoyed the drive. I couldn’t help smiling when we walked into the restaurant; it was bright, clean, rustic andContinue reading “Foodie Friday – The Buccella’s go to Batch”

30 Before 30

After reading La Petite Noob’s 30 Before 30 List I felt inspired to create one of my own. I’ve spent the last few months adding and editing this list, curating a balance between things I’ve always wanted to do and things that I don’t want to do but should. Since today is my 28th birthday,Continue reading “30 Before 30”

Foodie Friday – The Lockhart

If Fred and George Weasley opened an underground bar for underage Wizards on the Hogwarts grounds, I like to think that it would look something like The Lockhart Cocktail Bar on Dundas. It’s small and dark, filled with numerous trinkets and antique-store finds. It has character and warmth. I’ve been bugging my husband to takeContinue reading “Foodie Friday – The Lockhart”

Foodie Friday – Girls Night

Whenever I go out for dinner I try to head to the city, but last Friday I  wanted to stay close to home. A girlfriend of mine and I had loads to catch up on so I wanted to go somewhere with great food, good prices, and the understanding that they wouldn’t kick us outContinue reading “Foodie Friday – Girls Night”

the unbreakable Vanessa schmidt.

Yesterday Alex and I binge watched The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix. I instantly fell in love with Kimmy’s character. Her happiness, determination, passion and positivity is infectious! She reminds me of a younger version of myself; specifically when I interned at Random House. When I was doing everything and anything I could get myContinue reading “the unbreakable Vanessa schmidt.”

Anxiety Update – Back with a Vengeance

I don’t want to write about this but I should because sometimes a step back means taking a leap forward. I hoped that my previous post about anxiety would be my last. I truly believed that I had gained control over it, that I would never have to deal with the severe heart palpitations, nausea,Continue reading “Anxiety Update – Back with a Vengeance”

Foodie Friday – Carbs & Cake

It came to me in a moment of panic. I was sitting at my desk on a Friday afternoon contemplating my next move (something I tweet about regularly) when it hit me. I have been surrounded by food my entire life and nearly every job I’ve had has been connected to the food industry. IContinue reading “Foodie Friday – Carbs & Cake”

The Bride’s Diary – In Retrospect

Although my day as a bride has come and gone, I want to share one more instalment of The Bride’s Diary. One more blog post to document the three regrets I have from the BIG DAY. I wish I hadn’t asked the seamstress to make my dress as tight as humanly possible. As mentioned in my previous post, itContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – In Retrospect”
