Bang Bang Ice Cream

Happy Friday! Part of soaking up the most amount of summer involves plenty of ice cream! There are many cool places to check out and I recently discovered a funky shop serving unique flavours in style. This small action packed place is called Bang Bang. True to their name all ice cream flavours stem from…

Vegetarian Lasagna

Happy Friday! Another week of summer is over and we are finally getting hot temperatures here. Hasn’t June and July just flown by? Seemed like we blinked and it was gone. I’m certainly not ready for summer to be over. On Tuesday I took a chance and made vegetarian lasagna. Before sharing the recipe, directly…

Tips for Packing Lightly

Happy Travel Tuesday! One thing I’ve learned in my travels is packing light is essential if you’ll be walking and traveling with your items quiet often during your travels. When I went on a Contiki majority of our stays were one night and a few were two nights. Living out of a suitcase for one…

Good morning Sunshines and Happy Friday! This week flew by and was a productive one at home. Even though my to-do is growing I am starting to tackle some of the cleaning around the house.

Smoked Salmon Bites 

Appetizers are one of my favourite meals. Yes, I’m counting this as a meal since I love them oh so much. Tasting little bites as you go and if you don’t like something it isn’t a waste! Smoked Salmon reminds me of appetizers at Christmas as a child. This must be where my love for…

Low Calorie Drinks

Happy Fit Friday! Only a few years ago did I start to learn about the effects of consuming sugary drinks. Does anyone else love sweet drinks? I have a massive sweet tooth and it carries over to all types of sweets. For drinks, I’ve switched to healthier alternatives and cut out ones high in artificial…

Top Travel Mug

No secret I am one of the millions who love having tea and/or coffee daily. Tea I can drink plain but not at all with coffee. Trying to be frugal I bring my own latte in the morning from home to work and then use the kettle at work for afternoon tea. Usually twice a…
