RSVP Redux: September & October

Sometimes I’m a bad blogger. After staring at a computer screen and creating digital content for major brands all day at work, attending events and maintaining relationships at night…let’s just say blogging sometimes falls to the wayside. Unfortunately, this means that some of the awesome events I’m so privileged to…

99 Problems but a Bitch Ain’t One

It’s no surprise that I love my dog, Chloe. I got her on Queen’s Homecoming Weekend in 2008 after spending 21 years convincing my parents that we needed a dog and months scouring the web for the perfect breed. I’d settled on either a snow-white Maltese or a Yorkie, but…

Euro 2012 & Carlsberg Fan Park

I’m one of those “every two years” kinds of soccer fans. Around Euro Cup & World Cup, the flags come out and I split my time between Woodbridge, College St. & St. Clair. Now, I’m not a fair-weather Italian (I’ve got citizenship!) but I do ration my soccer intake. Last…

NXNE, Ben & Jerry’s and a chocolate moustache

I can guarantee my Saturday was cooler than yours. Although I’ve lived in Toronto my entire life, I’ve never been to a concert at Yonge Dundas Square. Honestly. On Saturday, I was invited by Ben & Jerry’s Canada to join the #ScoopMoovement by climbing onboard the Ben & Jerry’s ice…
