Weekend Edition

Espresso coffee cupAlthough this persistent cold doesn’t look like it’s giving up any time soon, I don’t care…it’s the weekend!!! As long as the sun is shining and I’m fortified with a strong, hot cup of java, it’s time to fight the winter doldrums and enjoy myself (until Monday at least).

In this Weekend Edition, I’m including a few links that are helping me get through this season.

  • The white stuff and sub zero temperature show little sign of stopping. Head over to PureWow for 7 Smart Ways to Break Your Winter Rut.
  • If braving the outside has you shivering already, travel to a warm destination without leaving your couch. Christine has the most beautifully serene blog post from her trip to Chefchaouen in Morocco.
  • And if my London readers want a bit of travel closer to home, St Thomas is having their annual Railway City Arts Crawl starting tonight, February 26th. Well worth the visit…and snagging some affordable, original art!

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

With temperatures this weekend showing some signs of warming up, it’s the perfect time to head outside and explore. The boy and I love finding ways to celebrate local art and culture, and after receiving a tip I knew I had to share this with all of you!

Just 15 minutes outside of London, a FREE winter event will spark your creativity and imagination. The St. Thomas Railway City Arts Crawl features 40 artists in a dozen locations displaying paintings, installations, scultpture, and even jewellery. There is nothing more exciting than meeting talented people who produce original artwork and having the opportunity to chat with them in person.

The event starts tonight from 6 -9 PM and runs until tomorrow afternoon 11-5 PM. Be sure to pick up the event passport, which also serves as a guide to the venues and artists, and collect stamps at each location. A stamped passport will qualify you to win some amazing prizes!!!

And if that wasn’t enough, a firework display and a deliciously catered After Party with live music at the Midtown Tavern will cap off the night! So I urge you to find some FUN in FEBRUARY and head out to the Arts Crawl!
