Equal parts traveller, lover of beauty and fashion, pop-culture junkie and fitness aficionado.
I’ve has been searching for the perfect, unspoiled beach and the best red lipstick (sometimes simultaneously) since I left journalism school.
I have travelled to several continents and am fascinated with archaeology, architecture and azure blue seas. I have also spent over a decade working in lifestyle television, producing segments on everything from top beauty products for “The Marilyn Denis Show” to new designers for “Fashion Television” and she has interviewed the likes of Kanye West, to Katy Perry to Justin Timberlake for MuchMusic.
My tastes are diverse and my thirst for pop culture is sadly unquenchable. I love to travel to diverse locations (Machu Pichu is next up on the vacation list) but I also love to read up on the latest BB Cream and gossip about who wore what on the red carpet.
My other love is fitness. As a certified fitness instructor, I’m passionate about helping people attain their health goals.
Writing is a way for me to share some of the discoveries I make in my daily adventures.
Every year around this time, as the thermometer slowly creeps up and magazines covers advertise the latest spring trends, I take a long look in the mirror. The months of cold, dry weather, skipping wo...
Health food shelves are stocked with weight loss supplements promising to help you shed stubbourn pounds. While you would be wise to be weary of ones making wild claims, there are supplements available that have been proven to be both effective and safe. Just head to the spice aisle.
South America's smallest capital packs a lot of adventure within its modest borders. From architectural wonders and world-class art galleries to charming backstreets and picturesque hiking trails; from scientific marvels to religious sanctuaries, Quito has something for all types of travellers.
This past weekend, the main proponents of the path, aptly named the Friends of the Pan Am Path, along with East Scarborough Storefront and Jane's Walk, held a series of walks near Scarborough's Highland Creek that focused on understanding the local waterways.
When families go on vacation, it's a given that parents and children will want different things out of the experience. In an ideal world, parents would want relaxation, luxury, great food and a stunni...
You've likely seen celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels putting people through rigorous workouts to lose weight, but when it comes to shedding pounds, Michaels says diet is more important than exercise. In fact, she says it's critical.
The Honda Indy is a mecca for race car enthusiasts, but what if you know nothing (and I mean nothing beyond that these cars are fast) about INDYCAR racing? My first inclination was to assume I'd be bo...
The best art stays with you. It provokes thought and discussion. It may even be a catalyst for change. With that sentiment in mind, the Friends of the Pan Am Path commissioned a group of street artists to paint a series of public art murals on a underpass of a Toronto highway ramp near city's Don River.
This past week, the Toronto Ward Museum initiated the "Dishing Up Toronto" program with three walking tours in Toronto and its suburbs. Immigrants served as guides and shared their stories and the stories of their neighbourhoods. Rather than use inanimate displays for their history lessons, the guides introduced audiences to their culture through visits to local hotspots and by sampling their favourite dishes.
When it comes to airline fees, knowledge is power. Once you know how to look for the hidden fees and how to avoid them, you can actually benefit from the hidden fee structure. We've tracked the recent costs of additional fees at some of Canada's biggest carriers and "Wow Air," the new low-cost carrier on the scene, so you know what you're up against.
While world events may have factored into Canadian's decisions to stay local, I'd like to think it had more to do with the fact that more of us are choosing to discover just how amazing this country really is. There are so many things to do in Canada and while you may think you've heard of them all, here are some that don't get the attention they deserve.
There has been a lot of praise across social media for Prince since the news of his death. Even as I write this, I can't quite come to terms with that phrase. As he would say, "something in the water does not compute."
