Fire Roasted

Not a combination of flavours that I would normally gravitate to, but I was feeling a bit adventurous. Verdict – delicious! A smooth dark chocolate centre held surprising bursts of sour watermelon flavour. I think it woke me up more than the cappuccino I ordered alongside. It’s my new favourite way to start a morning.

Weekend Edition

Purple flowers London, OntarioAs summer rolls on I’m taking the time to stop and smell the flowers.  Here are a few more stops I’ll be making this weekend. Hope you’ll enjoy them too!

  • Illustrator Jamie Lee Reardin combines two more of my favourite things – fashion and art in a quirky, colourful manner. I love her perspective!
  • Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith. F*** it…going to New York (FIGTNY) is a photo blog that sums up the sentiment in minimalist style.
  • I try to live my life in balance and the newest aid in my arsenal is Joyous Health. The gorgeous Joy McCarthy is a glowing example of “practice what you preach” and her beautifully simple recipes make my tummy growl.

Where am I?

Downtown London OntarioEvery time I step out my door, I feel magically transported to the elegant leafy sidewalks of Brooklyn Heights, New York. It’s charming and serene, and for the briefest moment, makes me feel like a tourist in my own city.
