Wedding Venue and Catering It was a priority for us to have our wedding ceremony and reception at the same venue so our guests wouldn’t have to drive and travel twice. But we also wanted…

    OneZo Tapioca: New Favourite Bubble Tea Shop in Toronto

    If you know me, you’ll know I love bubble tea. It’s probably not healthy (who am I kidding..) but you’ll find me sipping on one at least a couple times a week. And I’ve finally found my favourite bubble tea shop: OneZo Tapioca! They offer a great assortment of bubble tea drink flavours from milk teas to fruit teas, and the best part is their bouncy chewy tapioca! OneZo Tapioca recently opened up a new location in Richmond Hill at Commerce Gate. It’s a small shop with only a few…

    Cafe Bon Bon Review: Modern Chic Restaurant with Beautifully Plated Food

    Cafe Bon Bon is a restaurant located in Richmond Hill serving brunch, dinner, desserts and a wide assortment of drinks. Their dishes are colourful and fresh. Each ingredient looks delicately placed making the plate very inviting. When you first step inside, you’re greeted by a chic and glamourous interior. We visited on a late Saturday afternoon and they were pretty busy but there were still tables available. Choosing what to order on the menu was hard, so many items sounded interesting! But with just the two of us, we had…

    Tips & Lessons Learned from a First Time Buyer: Pre Construction, Tarion, Toronto Real Estate

    Let’s talk about real estate in Toronto and the GTA. My husband and I purchased a pre-construction townhome in Toronto in 2014. We took occupancy in 2017. Last year, we sold it and purchased a new detached house. We were first time buyers and first time sellers. There was much to learn during this whole real estate ordeal and the learning curve was steep! So I wanted to share my experience as a real person, not a realtor or builder trying to sell something or earn commission. Buying Pre-Construction from…

    Must Visit Restaurant for Matcha Lovers in Toronto: TSUJIRI

    TSUJIRI is one of my favourite places to go to for a light refreshing dessert or drink. They are a Japanese traditional tea brand most well known for their eye catching matcha desserts and drinks. It’s not surprising to see lineups out the door on weekends with some of their popular items already sold out well before closing time. Their North York location recently opened up a full-service restaurant on the second floor where they serve hot, savoury menu items along with some more elaborate desserts. I made sure to…

    Disney-ify Your Home Decor with some Princess Magic

    I love having things I adore all over my house to reflect some personality. When one of those loves is a cartoon, it gets a little harder to ‘hide them in plain sight’.

Cinderella is my favourite Disney princess and these are the fancy pieces I can display on a shelf in the living room. Bonus points for items that are practical!

    Afternoon Dim Sum at Skyview Fusion Cuisine in Toronto

    Once in a while my husband and I like to start our day with a dim sum date! Chinese dim sum is great, you can have so much bite-sized variety! We wanted to try a restaurant we haven’t been for ‘yum cha’ before. Skyview Fusion Cuisine came to mind because we’ve had dinner there and the food was good so we had some expectations. We went super early on a Monday around 9:30am and were seated right away. The place was surprisingly packed already and we were seated in a…
