I’m heading to France on an outdoor adventure! Sunday, I’m leaving with 5 other bloggers on Air France’s Dreamliner plane (that’s aviation speak for big, fancy new plane - see why here) and we’re heading to Paris (where I was in May - read about that trip here), but after that, we only find out ...

Martinique Gourmande 2017

With the aftermath of Hurricane Irma in The Caribbean, the best way to support the islands, is to go be a tourist there as soon as things clear up and the airports are back in operation. If you can't organize a Caribbean getaway for now, you can certainly take part in Martinique Gourmande, a culinary festival ...

Dandy Cocktails

Making cocktails is a lot like cooking, you look in your fridge to see what ingredients you have and then, if you’re like me, you Google a recipe based on the key ingredients you have. If you don’t have quite all of the ingredients required in the recipe that you want to make, you improvise. ...

2017 Orford Music Festival

For many of us, summer means vacation, but for those who have to work most of the summer and still want to go on mini getaways, I suggest you check out the Orford Music Festival. I always enjoy a nice dinner followed by some form of entertainment, like the AML dinner-cruises that I wrote about here. That's why I agreed to attend the opening concert of the ...

Inspired by the French Riviera, we sipped on classic vodka martinis (with a twist of lemon) and enjoyed fresh-shucked oysters in the garden at the Field & Stream Club in Dorval. The cocktail was followed by a traditional French picnic on blue ...

Grand Prix Activities – From a Little to a Luxe

Grand Prix, for me, is all about the parties and the excuse to go all glam over the course of an entire weekend. I started attending F1 parties 5 years ago when the Ritz-Carlton first invited me to their prestigious Grand Prix party. Knowing that this year’s event at the Ritz is beyond most people’s ...

Spoon Cafe

Another great little spot for coffee in my neighbourhood is Spoon Cafe on Crescent. The little coffee sister of the Soupesoup group was designed with the help of local photographer, Ali Inay. Ali has an eye for coffee and great places to find your caffeine fix which led him to launch the Instagram account @mtlcafecrawl ...
