ROGERS CUP IN THE CITY

Toronto and Montreal are home to Rogers Cup. Both of these cities interchange where women and men compete for the coveted cup. It’s also where tennis fans like myself get the opportunity to see our favorite tennis stars close to home. I have been a tennis fan since I was a child. My mother signed up both my brother and I at a local tennis club on the west coast. I remember waiting for over a year until they had two spots available for the both of us and basically flying through the classes because of the countless hours I spent practicing at…

FINDING YOUR INNER PEACE WITH LOLË

It seems like over the last few weeks I tended to spend a great deal of time either behind my computer or out and about running from one event to another. In between working on my projects during the day, attending previews and going to restaurant launch parties, I hardly have the time to take a time out and regroup. In fact, before the day is over I feel drained and need a cup or two to help me make it to the end. The only time I didn’t feel drained before the end of day was when I would visit my folks…

BRUNCH AT THE DRAKE HOTEL

One of my favorite meals of the day is brunch. It’s at the perfect time where you can combine your favorite items from both breakfast and lunch in to one meal. What makes brunch even better is when you have some good friends to enjoy it with so that it is filled with laughter and some fun stories. My friend raved about The Drake Hotel because of their chicken and waffles. According to her they are the best in town. Now in all honesty, I couldn’t try it because I was on a pescetarian diet but the scent I got from…

BEACH BOUND

If you live in Toronto and are looking for a perfect spot to soak in some rays and feel warm sand crystals under your feet, Sugar Beach is a place you have to check out.

If the heat gets too much, there is a water feature right by it for you to run around and let the refreshing spray cool you down. Today I hit…

SUMMER LAYERS

I have a love and hate relationship with summer. During winter, I cannot wait to ditch my heavy layers for something lighter. In summer, I get all excited with the heat up until the temperatures hit a scorching 32 degrees. Even then, I have a weakness for layering and will always wear my favorite trench coat over anything. I got this cute white shorts  and navy cap sleeve top from JACHS NY and they are perfect to help keep me cool in this scorching temperature. I originally got these shorts because I knew they would look perfect to wear over my bathing suit for our…
