Making Grand Events

It’s always the little things that count. Especially when it comes to planning a good event, little details can turn out to be the ones that matter most! You gotta give props to good props. For any type of event, whether it be conference, daymeeting, banquet, team building or wedding, subtle touches to the decor add your personalized flair, and [...]

Niagara’s Bounty

I went to the grocery store the other day and had my attitude adjusted. Thought I’d pick up a bag of milk – it was $16.00 for three liters. Yup. And the bottle of ketchup I looked at was $14.99 – no kidding. And three, tiny, pale triangles of under-ripe watermelon on a Styrofoam tray? A stunning $3.99. Where was [...]

Sounds of Summer

The Sounds of Summer are alive and well in Niagara this year…perhaps even a little bit louder than usual. After a big kick-off that saw the Tragically Hip playing a Canada Day concert in Niagara-on-the-Lake to a crowd of over 30,000 people, Summer 2012 shows no signs of letting up on live music. If you find yourself on a short or [...]

Wedding Cake Pops

Having a beautiful cake, with a bride and groom sitting at the top gazing adoringly at each other is a steadfast tradition at a wedding. But a new cake trend is popping up at weddings in Niagara this summer. Move over 3-tier wedding cakes and get out of the way delicate cupcakes because now, cake pops are taking over the [...]

S’UP? Yoga…

Waikiki is for surfers. From the minute the sun peeks over the horizon in the morning to when it dips down over the mountains in the evening, they are there. Waiting. For that ubiquitous and yet elusive next wave. They are poetry in motion. Their bodies may be the finest display of core training there is (without a single abdominal [...]

Shaw Fest Best

Ragtime is playing at the Shaw Festival Theatre in Niagara on the Lake this year and as White Oaks Resort is one of their tourism partners, I was lucky enough to get an invite to their Tourism Night! I love musicals of any kind, being a former music student, back in my youth…way back, I might add. Yes, way, way [...]

Summer Skin Shine

Summertime is the undisputed seasonal champ for kicking-back and relaxing. The warm weather, the longer days, and the glorious sun!  For Canadians, after a long winter hibernation, summer sun is more anticipated than the next iPhone release. And as you spend hours basking in its warm glow outside, whether lounging or playing, your skin is being exposed to some not [...]

Patio Mojo

Can you feel it? The need to get outside and take in all the rays, breezes, buzzing and chirping possible? Outdoor living is hotter that ever. I think, mainly because of all of the cool furniture and décor you can buy, but also because of global warming (so do cut down on those disposable plates). I resisted the outdoor mega-trend [...]

Return of the Daredevil

Feel as if you’re having trouble finding balance in your life? Try trading places with Nik Wallenda. On June 15, Wallenda, the 33-year old Florida stuntman will saunter across the Niagara gorge, from the U.S. to the Canadian side, balancing on a two-inch wide tightrope. Although there have been other tightrope walkers who’ve challenged Niagara, none have gone straight across [...]

Meant to Run

We were meant to run! Now that spring has arrived and it’s getting a little nicer outside, more people feel like enjoying the outdoors by going for a nice jog. Many people, on the other hand, don’t want to run, because it puts too much stress on the knees, there’s too much pounding, or they give some other excuse of [...]
