I was in quite the dire situation with little to no food in the fridge and pantry. I wasn’t going to be grocery shopping anytime soon, so I needed quick meal I could make out of what I had on hand. And of course, the one thing that you can depend on is rice balls or onigiri. Onigiri are rice balls formed into either spherical or triangular shapes and wrapped with nori. I obviously didn’t have the traditional ingredients like sticky rice or nori, so I altered the recipes quite a bit. After making onigiri, I have come to learn that it […]
I checked out Colette Grand Cafe in Toronto to see if it matches up with the reputation it has on Instagram. Is it as good as it seems online on Instagram? On Instagram, when you look up Colette, you see beautiful, bright, delicious foods with instagram-worthy backdrops and floor-drops for photos. Many bloggers and Instagramers visit the cafe to get professional looking photos without trying too hard. My friend Linda had her birthday shoot here, so it was a great chance for Esther, Linda, and I to check out how the place really looked and how the food tasted.
Have you ever thought back into your childhood memory and remembered a place that you found was beautiful, fun, and unlike any other you’ve visited? I recently did. I took a trip to Mill Pond Park to see if the place in my memory was real. To my delight, it in fact was real. Obviously it was much smaller than I anticipated since I was a lot younger, but it definitely still captured the same beauty, light, and fun. The exact place I remembered was far off in the back and corner of the park. It was a straw field with […]
One thing is for sure after I climbed the mountains in the Palo Dura Canyon, I’m not exercising for a VERY long time. At first, I didn’t think this was going to be that bad of a hike. The trails I’ve gone on in the GTA back in Canada are pretty flat or don’t stay steep for long. Also, I never have to feel like I’m being baked alive in the GTA. The different between trails in Texas and GTA are very different. Luckily, through all the exhaustion, I was able to get some bomb pictures.
Mornings can be a pain in the butt. Nobody wants to wake up super early to head into work. Everybody wants to relax and be on a permanent vacation. In my case, I live in Canada, so it’s freezing cold and dark in the winter mornings. Way to motivate you to get out of bed, huh? The moment I peak out a corner of my blanket, I shiver. It’s never fun. I’ve been living in these colds winters for a while, so I have some winter essentials that may help you all out as well.
Not too long ago, I had the pleasure of attending the KISS Fall and Holiday 2016 Collection. It was a pleasant experience at Delysees in Toronto. I have always heard of Delysees and seen many of the delicious pictures, but I had never been there. Being a girl close to Toronto, but still quite the commute away, it’s hard to drag me down there just for food. However, I finally got the chance to try it today!
EOS (Evolution of Smooth) products are known for being extremely aesthetically pleasing because of the unique packaging and product line variety. I believe the trend of owning EOS products started from their lip balms and branched out from there. Their lip balms have very unique packaging in being circular, round, and pleasantly pastel coloured. It’s a step up from the typical tube-like lip balms you find at your local drug store. People have even DIY-ed lip balms out of the left over EOS packaging. The EOS trend has exploded in the online community. Now I will admit, I have never tried […]
In October of 2015, a friend and I took a trip to Paris, France. This trip was our first big trip to a foreign place. We knew we wanted to go somewhere adventurous and foreign because we wanted it to be unforgettable. This trip was planned very last minute. We for sure had to have this trip during our winter breaks, but we were just waiting and searching for the right deal. Finally, we found a deal on YYZDeals and nabbed it quickly. And so, our big girl adventures to Paris had just begun.
During my one month stay in Texas, my boyfriend and I took a drive to Lubbock because he had to visit for school orientation. We stayed there for 2 days. I have to say though, Lubbock has nothing there but Texas Tech School. The school is gorgeous, stunning, and large, but every where else in the general area, meh. I don’t have too many pictures from Lubbock because we were simply too tired from the long 5 hour drive there. However, I did take some pictures of our drive there to pass the time.
This was my last stop during my stay in Texas. I didn’t even know there was a Dallas Arboretum until my boyfriend pointed it out to me. I do love nature, so I thought it’d be fun to check it out. I have to say though, this place is bigger than you think it’d be. We got there an hour before they closed and decided to take the main paths. There isn’t too much to see but a small overview on the main path. However, when we started venturing deeper into the little paths, we came to realize that this […]
Going to Texas means food. Yes the food is cheaper there than in Canada for a lot more to consume, but you do also run short of money. I especially ran short because of having to buy a new charger since the hotel at Lubbock shorted mine out. The other museums like the National Video Game, Dallas Art Museum, Nasher Sculpture Garden, and Dallas Arboretum costed some money to enter, but the Frisco Heritage Museum was free. Score! It was also one of my top 3 favourite places to visit in Texas because everything was preserved history in its original spot. […]
This museum is by far my favourite place in Texas. The National Videogame Museum is the happiest place on earth for me. I can be a nerd, I love games, I love playing them, I love watching game plays, it’s just all around fun for me. I appreciate the history of games and how they’ve evolved and this place is all about that.
If you know Texas, you know it is HOT. I’m a girl from Canada and I am definitely not used to the heat at all. I will say that I do prefer the heat over the cold though. Because it’s so hot, my boyfriend and I tried to refrain from leaving the house in the daytime. Instead, we slept during the day and went out at night like owls whenever we could. The weather at night is beautiful. It is warm enough to wear light layers or no layers at all, but cool enough where you don’t have to be […]
I feel like visiting any museum when you go to a new place is a mandatory tourist bucket-list task. It lets you learn more about the place you’re visiting. I did go to other museums like the Dallas Video Game Museum or botanical garden, but the first place I went to was the Dallas Museum of Art & Nasher Sculpture garden. They were both beside each other, so it was super convenient to be able to visit both.
Fashion is complicated sometimes. It’s nice to dress up and buy clothes, but what it does to your bank, is not fun. So I decided to make a short list of summer fashion essentials that you need that will not go out of style. That means if you buy one of these essentials, you most likely will not need to replace it for a long time. These fashion essentials are worth the investment to buy high quality versions.
