Holigiving at Lee’s Kitchen

A few of us were fortunate to be invited back to Lee’s Kitchen for Holigiving. What is Holigiving one might ask? It is a gathering held on the American Thanksgiving weekend bringing together friends, food and good cheer in celebration of the Christmas holiday season.  All of us work such crazy schedules and long hours, especially those in retail leading up to Christmas. This was the perfect ... >

Review of Sushi on Bloor

Sushi on Bloor is the spot for some delicious and fresh sushi. Confusing name, (I know, I was perplexed myself initially) but that is the name of the restaurant and conveniently, its location. Sushi on Bloor is situated right in the heart of the city near the intersection of Bloor and Bathurst.   Night view of Sushi on Bloor.

To fauna or Not to fauna? That is the Question…

Starbucks….an addiction…

Mmmmmm Starbucks…… A constant life addiction, and an instant comfort. It never ceases to amaze me how much of a cult following Starbucks has created, myself included. They have me hooked with their Starbucks card and the iPhone app. When I was in Japan, I was obsessed with collecting tumblers from every city I went to. Not only that, I was in love with the exclusive Mango frappacinos ... >
