Lee’s Kitchen and for a Celebration

The Lee’s Kitchen that I am about to describe and review below is not a franchise, nor is it a standalone restaurant.  It is in fact the kitchen, heart and talent of my good friend Rebecca Lee (@rl026) who puts together a phenomenal meal and event for very special occasions.  Last night was the celebration of our good friend Rieko who is getting married in the next couple of weeks.   ... >

Spirit Twin

Meet Marcus. He is my “Spirit Twin”. Funny Guy! We all must have someone out there on us who is destined to be your spirit twin. What is this preposterous thing called a spirit twin you ask? Basically it is someone out there in this world who is basically the same person as you on many levels (emotionally, psychologically, possible even physically to some extent).  If you have ever se ... >

Impromptu Visit to Montreal

Life is always fun when you are spontaneous here and there.  Last Friday night, my friend Alex and I hit the road to Montreal. As the title suggests, it was somewhat impromptu, but not really. I have a lot of Type A tendencies. A couple of days prior to Friday, we had decided we would go to Montreal.  However I allowed myself to be spontaneous with the restaurant that we ended up eating at. Afte ... >

The Reverse Surprise Party

Who doesn’t love a surprise party? We all know how they go. Lots of planning and logistics are done without the lucky recipient knowing. And then that special moment when they walk in the door and SURPRISE! Well last weekend, we had a funny incident occur. The lucky recipient surprised the guests! I was the main coordinator and missed the key cue for when the Birthday Girl walked in the door ... >

Say Yes to Overalls

Overalls are not just for the tradesmen/women or farmers. They have evolved overtime to become a classic, easy to wear staple fashion piece. Classic full length overall. Shorteralls or Overalls. Whatever your preference, they are a great addition to any wardrobe. A couple of Sundays ago, with a little encouragement and stamp of approval from my roommate, she assured me that I looked awesome in my ... >

Don’t Wash Your Denim

Ok that seems pretty extreme. But to put it in a realistic sense, don’t wash your denim that often. I am not making this up.  The CEO, Chip Bergh,at Lev’s  backs me on this one.  He tells everyone to actually not wash denim at all in a recent interview, as he is wearing year old denim that have never seen a washing machine (Watch the video cleip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v ... >

The “Side” Effects

Trends and fads come and go. For some reason, the concept of the “side” effect or trend put my head spinning in motion recently and I had a brainstorming session with myself on all of the different variations this has evolved into. Below I have recreated my internal brain storming session into an organized list. Let me know your thoughts on them. Note that some of these side trends are ... >

What’s Your Pick?

If there is a local farmer’s market near you, it is certainly worth a gander to. I keep driving past the one closest to me everyday on my way to work, and I made the conscious decision and effort to check it out today. And I am glad I sure did! Farmer’s markets  range in size. The one I went to, the Parkdale Market in Westboro, was on the smaller side, but it was busting in size with ... >

Some Legs, Back and Vogue

I have a very artistic, talented, creative and amazing roommate.  She is just wrapping up her program at Algonquin College in Ottawa.  Next, she will be headed off to the prestigious OCAD (http://www.ocadu.ca/)  in T.dot. Along her journey, she has asked me a few times to be her “project” if you will, and my face in some shape or form has become a part of her portfolio.  The most r ... >

This is Not a Toy

Yup, that’s right! “This is Not a Toy” is this awesome art exhibit happening right now at the Design Exchange near Union Station. (http://www.dx.org/). You can see how I just wanted to poke, prod and squish this thing, but it probably would have resulted in my getting kicked out by security. As the marketing pamphlet describes it, “This Is Not A Toy was conceived as a pres ... >
