Sheer Sunscreen Joy

Finally, summer is here and we are getting some beeea-u-tiful weather! What better way to enjoy it than to get outside and soak up that sunshine. My summer activities include concerts, concerts and more concerts – all outdoors of course. We all know that it is extremely important to protect your skin on sunny days but one of the biggest [...]

Niagara Winery Bike Tour

I’ve lived in Niagara my whole life – well most of my life, minus 6 years spent in Toronto – and I have just this year gone on my first wine tour. Can you believe it? I can’t. Why did I wait so long?! Although, I use the term “wine tour” loosely here, it was more of a “wine adventure.” [...]

Superfoods – Down the Rabbit Hole

Dirtiest Day of My Life

I think it is safe to say that I am a clean freak. Everything in my house has its place.
