September marks the time of Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Last month, the city was hustling and bustling with celebrities and film makers as they proudly walked the red carpets and premiered their fine works of art for the first time. I had the distinct pleasure to attend a number of events hosted by Nespresso, including Coffee with Creators and the premier screening of “First Man”, starring our very own Ryan Gosling!
Food & Drink
I can’t believe it’s the last week of August! I’m holding onto that last bit of Summer by filling my weekends with road trips and roadside picnics with the help of the 2018 Ford EcoSport. Earlier this year, I had the chance to celebrate the launch of this crossover SUV at the Ford Life Hack Academy event in New York City.
Do you prefer a Girls Night In or a Girls Night Out?
Back in my twenties, I’d make any excuse to have a Girl’s Night Out. I loved getting dolled up and heading out to the latest hot spot in the city. But my, have times changed! Finding a date to hang out with the girls has become a challenge in itself due to busy schedules and competing priorities. When we finally manage to set a date, I much prefer a Girl’s Night In, where we can sit back and catch up over yummy food and drinks, without having to worry about waiting in long line ups or last call!
What’s more refreshing than an iced coffee to kick off a hot summer day you ask? A Coffee Iced Pop of course!
Since the launch of Nespresso On-Ice capsules, I’ve been conjuring interesting ways to enjoy them. I recently acquired a set of vintage style ice pop molds and figured out that while iced coffee is already awesome as is, freezing it then dunking them into a glass of milk, is ever so yummy! Plus, they just look so darn cute and perfect for parties!
Summer is just around the corner and I’m ready for some outdoor entertaining!
Since we live close by the beach, inviting friends over for food and refreshments after a day long in the sand has got to be one of our favourite weekend rituals during the Summer. Ever since moving slightly further from the city, I much prefer laid back nights at home. But just because we don’t desire partying all night long these days doesn’t mean we don’t want to have a good time, whipping up delicious bbq marinades and concocting a few specialty cocktails for our guests is my idea of a good time!
Hello! Greeting you this morning with a scrumptious homemade granola recipe that requires absolutely NO skills at all. If you know how to mix ingredients in a bowl, then my friend, you’re all set!
I always have granola stocked in my pantry because its one of the simplest breakfast dish when mixed with milk or yogurt and if I’m feeling adventurous …
I’ll find an excuse to treat myself to a yummy frozen treat any time of the day. This particular one combines my love for greek yogurt, coconut milk, and coffee and guess what, healthy enough to enjoy for breakfast!
Happy Good Friday! Every year when Easter approaches, the house is stocked with loads of (unnecessary but delicious) chocolates. Cadbury mini eggs has got to be my all-time favourite. But…
Which Nespresso machine is right for you?
As a proud owner of five Nespresso machines (yes, I said five), I quite often get questions from readers, friends and family on which Nespresso machine they should buy. Well, that’s a good question! Honestly, each coffee machine is unique and can offer something slightly different from another. But if you’re in the market for only one (most people are), then I would focus on what is most important to you. For example, are you looking for a machine that offers you the kind of coffee you want to drink daily? Or are you seeking for one to entertain guests? Perhaps you’re most keen on the design and style of the machine.
Who doesn’t love a life hack?! A few weeks ago, I was invited to join Ford Canada at the Ford Life Hack Academy event in New York City to celebrate…
