So as many couples know, in a relationship, the man is often referred to as ‘Mr. Fix It’ or the ‘Handyman’. But we all know that women are just as capable of doing good handy work and even those who steer away from getting their hands dirty can benefit from having power tools (or components used for them) around the house.
Are you still stopping off at Timmy’s, Starbucks or Rotten Ronnie’s on your way in to work for a quick bite? That $5 a day could go towards better things if you make your own breakfast burritos, at a fraction of the cost. We’ve done this a few times now and ours only cost about $1.50 each and are made with fresh ingredients - here’s how!
At this point of the year, Ontarians are starting to prepare for what’s to come. Those of us in southwestern Ontario have had a bit of frost, but no snow… yet. It’s a good time to do a check-up, not only for tire safety, but for emergency supplies too.
Fall is my favourite time of year! The beautiful colours captivate me, especially while driving through the back roads where there’s lots of changing scenery. I’ve had the pleasure of exploring in a few different places near home recently and strongly suggest that you get outdoors too before these vivid colours get wiped out by Old Man Winter arrives.
Last weekend, I was pleasantly surprised with an experience to photograph the Birds of Prey at Mountsberg Conservation Area in Hamilton. I have slowly been taking up recreational photography and everyone who knows me knows I love animals, so this was a great way to combine the two. My better half not only gave me a new camera last month (a Canon Rebel T5i) for our monthiversary, but planned a surprise for me to partake in this special opportunity and practice my skills – I’m so lucky!
I recently had the privilege of joining a group of ladies in wine country for a bachelorette weekend, and I think it’s safe to say we were all very impressed with our wine tour. It was well organized, educational and fun! In this post, I’m going to outline the tour inclusions and share my thoughts on the private wine tour that we experienced.
Halloween isn’t just a good excuse for dressing up and eating candy – it’s a good excuse to get creative too! Like any [unofficial] holiday, decorating is part of the fun. Here’s some inspiration for your Halloween décor, and all for under $5! Whether you’re the artsy type (or even if you’re not), this DIY technique will work for you.
Important Things to Remember:
Most Toronto-area locals know of the outlet malls in Markham and Mississauga where you can get some great deals and avoid paying retail prices. But there are a few times of year that some of the big names (like Zwilling J.A. Henckels) host a warehouse sale and these are sales you don’t want to miss.
This summer has been one of the wettest summers I have ever experienced (and definitely the most unsuccessful one ever in terms of results from my backyard garden). Fresh veggies are some of the best ‘healthy’ treats one can have, but this year has been a bust for backyard vegetable gardens… I can’t even imagine what it’s been like for the farmers who do this for a living!
