A snapshot of what is happening on the Westshore
As a mid-30’s millennial, I find myself in a new chapter of life, just like some of you I am certain. But hey, that’s okay, change is good, and we’ll march on to our new stories together! I have officially declared 2018 the year of me and to celebrate, I’m off on some solo and . . .
Our precious planet is a hot topic these days and with April being Earth month, it is even more so! I’m always reminded at this time of year to take stock of how I recycle at home and ask myself what more can I do to reduce my waste? We are lucky here in Victoria . . .
It’s Wednesday night, and what a week it’s been! Back and forth to soccer practice, just picked up my daughter’s dress from the cleaners, and we can’t forget the not so quick trip to the groomers after Lucy the pug had a run in with a skunk! Time to put my feet up, and what . . .
The curtains and windows are open, fresh air and sunlight is shining through the house and those beautiful cherry blossoms are everywhere in our gorgeous city. It is time to refresh and renew for the spring! A good spring clean makes me feel organized and ready to face the rest of the year with renewed energy . . .
So when I want to get the whole family to unplug and engage, I call everyone in for family game night. I mean, really, what better way to get my family sitting in one room, with no devices in hand and actually paying attention to one another! Over to the hall closet I go (you . . .
Ah, ‘tis the season . . . when all the gyms in the City are filled to the brim with the, “well intentioned”. No judgement . . . we’re in the same boat. In fact, with a March Break vacay quickly approaching, one of our New Year’s resolutions (along with eating a more plant-based diet) . . .
It’s that time of year! Time to light a fire, dig out those deliciously-scented candles and crawl under the covers with a good book. Hibernation . . . hygge . . . whatever you want to call it, we think we’ve nailed it, along with picking out some great reads from Coles. Here’s what’s on . . .
Bet you haven’t heard that one before! Never fear, foodie friend . . . we’ve got you covered with pizza, burgers, tacos and soooo much more! Here’s the 411 on all the delish dining options at Westshore Town Centre: A&W What’s your favourite? Mama Burger? Papa Burger? Or, maybe the Teen Burger? We know . . . it’s . . .
I find home cooks usually fall into one of two categories . . . people who follow the recipe to the letter and people who take it all with a grain of salt and wing it. Having closely watched my mother in the kitchen numerous times growing up as a child (relegated to bystander after . . .
I’m not sure about you, but lately I feel like I am here there and everywhere which means, some evenings there just isn’t enough time to eat let alone prep and cook meals from scratch. This is where my friends from M&M Food Market, my go-to for quick and easy meals with little or no . . .
It’s 11 a.m., do you know where your lunch is coming from? I do! Well, ask me today and it’s the Cambodian Jungle Curry Box from Noodlebox (yellow curry and coconut broth simmered with rice noodles, Asian greens, sprouts, onions, peppers, cilantro and mango). Tomorrow, I’m leaning towards the Crispy Shanghai Chicken Box, also from . . .
In keeping with one of my New Year’s resolutions, I’ve made some big changes both in terms of my workout routine and the foods I eat (beach body, here I come!). Every once in a while however, I like to treat . . .
