Tasting Toronto

Tasting Toronto

Before our weekend came to a close, Jessica and I enjoyed one last dinner in Toronto at Kiin. After a day of wine tasting, we opted for these delicious mocktails. The Sweet Pea (front) was made with hibiscus water, seedlip garden, egg white, pineapple, lemon, simple...
A Weekend in the County – Day 2

A Weekend in the County – Day 2

On Sunday we woke up to weather nice enough for dining outdoors with this pretty view of the lake, and blankets in case we got chilly. On our way to some wineries (I know, I didn’t know Toronto had a wine region either), we stopped by MacCool’s Reuse which was chock...

A Weekend in the County – Day 1

Last weekend I flew into Toronto and drove up to Prince Edward County. Joining my best friend Jessica and her friend Emily (who lives in Toronto), we were celebrating Jessica’s birthday. We were shocked when we arrived at our bed and breakfast, At the Lake...
Bloghouse Scottsdale – Day 5

Bloghouse Scottsdale – Day 5

I was fortunate enough to have time for an additional night at the Andaz Scottsdale. This also allowed for a final familiarization tour with Experience Scottsdale (so this post is sponsored) before heading home. This Purple Power bowl with lightly brûléed bananas,...

Bloghouse Scottsdale – Day 4

My experience at Bloghouse Scottsdale has been quite the four-day journey. At the end of the first day I was so overwhelmed I wondered if I should just give up blogging altogether. Now, I am raring to go with a new niche, brand, and a to-do list a mile long. It’s been...

Bloghouse Scottsdale – Day 3

A beautiful agave plant on Andaz Scottsdale’s property. We were served a tasty and healthy breakfast (croissants are practically a staple in France, right?) each morning outside our conference room at the Andaz Scottsdale. After an info-packed morning,...

Bloghouse Scottsdale – Day 2

Our second day of Bloghouse Scottsdale started bright and early with an optional selfie class. We learned about color, composition, movement, and Instagram tips. My selfie lens flattens my nose a bit–and my version of a selfie is still using my own arm. I learned...
Bloghouse Scottsdale – Day 1

Bloghouse Scottsdale – Day 1

I’m in Scottsdale, AZ at Bloghouse Scottsdale (a travel blog conference). I’ve been blogging for almost 10 years (this November), so it seemed like a good time to learn more. As I walked around the resort this morning, I was struck by these beautiful flowers. I...
Rediscovering Seattle – Days 2 + 3

Rediscovering Seattle – Days 2 + 3

Known as a coffee mecca, I had to check out as many local coffee shops as possible. On my second day in Seattle, I headed to Anchorhead Coffee for a tasty latte and a blueberry scone. The decor and vibe of the shop were my favorite part – I love anchors, rustic rope,...
Rediscovering Seattle

Rediscovering Seattle

I haven’t been to Seattle for quite a few years. The city has changed immensely since I was last in town, maybe ten years ago (I don’t even have any blog posts tagged with Seattle) – lots of high-rise buildings and so many new restaurants! One thing that hasn’t...
