Mac and Cheese – Yes Please!

Do you ever get into those moods where you are hungry and know you should eat but don’t now what to eat? Laziness often kicks in and the thought of making a ruckus in the kitchen just doesn’t sound like a good time. I am not a good cook by any means, so these feelings and thoughts cross my mind quite often. I have learned to discover my neighbourhood more and am finding out which place ... >

Christmas Socks Instead of Christmas Sweaters

Socks
The Holiday season is one of my most favourite times of the year. It’s special because it marks a time of when many of us reconnect and catch up on things we have done throughout the year.

Make Your Own Indoor Garden

Air plants displayed in an artistic way.
Mother Nature has nothing on me as I am outsmarting her and making sure spring has sprung, at least inside at my house with my indoor garden. She has been playing games with us by dangling a carrot in front of our noses by giving us only hints of spring. Living in a condo and concrete jungle, it does not bode well for trying to sustain an outdoor garden. The beauty of an indoor garden is that you ... >

Filly in the City

When you combine the horse world with the fashion world in an urban downtown setting, you get Filly in the City.  Christine Curtin, the owner of the store, combined her passion for horses and previous work experience to bring Filly and the City to life back in mid December.  On a recent trip back to Toronto, I had the opportunity to speak with Christine after she kindly invited me to take a look ... >

Let’s Go Back to School – Review

I would go back to School in a heart beat.  The kind I am referring to is not the educational institution setting, but the hip, fun and trendy brunch spot in Liberty Village in Toronto.  What better way to end a year and begin a new one than with great company and delicious food? Back on December 31st, after a flight from Ottawa to Toronto, I had a scrumptious lunch at School with some friends. ... >

It’s Time to Get Dirty with Frank
