If you haven’t heard, Canada is turning freakin’ 150 years old this year. I’m almost 1/5 of that age. Needless to say, there’s a LOT going on in Vancouver now for Canada 150 (but I’m also just really excited for the long weekend.) There’s also a lot of specialty items created for Canada’s 150th birthday; TWG Tea Canada is currently serving the Jubilee Tea Set and you don’t need to be Canadian to enjoy the flavours in this!

After eating days of crappy park food in Disney World, I said I’d stay away from fried protein when I went to New York City. The only exception that deserved to be an exception was Fuku, a fried chicken shop that is part of the Momofuku chain. (I really wanted to go to Momofuku Ko, but given the price and USD to CAD exchange rate, it just wasn’t worth it. It is on my bucket list though, ever since it was mentioned in one of my favourite books, The Rosie Project.) I went to Momofuku Noodle in Toronto and I think I will continue to try different Momofuku’s in different cities! [Read more…]
Lately, the stress eating has been real. I hope none of ya run into me in real life because dem face pudge is going to wave hello before my hand does!! I should be making 10,000 steps per day listen on my Fitbit but there’s been days where I’m less than 2000 steps. One of my more recent food adventures was at Notch8 Restaurant at Hotel Vancouver for their Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale Afternoon Tea.
For all those who know me personally, I complain more about going to the gym than actually going to the gym. Yet, I seek out carbs, sweets, and meat like kids seeking for that golden ticket in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. When I was offered to try SkinnyMint Ultimate Teatox I was sold by reading the words “kick that bloat.” Four years ago, I was constantly bloated and had a heck ton of stomach issues thanks to the little f*cker called H. Pylori bacteria, and eating hasn’t really been the same since. Tea has been one of my long time go-to’s for helping my stomach to calm down from any fatty foods or indigestion.
Love is in the air and I’ve been way too much in love with my new Playstation 4; a slight distraction at the moment. But. whether you’re single or in a relationship, we all got to eat on Valentine’s Day. This year TWG Tea Salon & Boutique is celebrating with a Valentine’s Day Menu that is infused with teas to reflect this season. I was invited to a tasting of it and I hope you fall in love with the photos.
