Stars at Wintersong Music Festival

I had one of my favourite experiences ever seeing my favourite band perform last night. Stars were the headliners this year for Wintersong, a free music festival north of Toronto in Stouffville. They are always brilliant and last night seemed extra special. The venue was small, and it felt like we were dancing with them at a party


  • Well.ca Offer of the Week: Immune Support & Cold Relief

    It’s cold and flu season and we’ve reached that part of the winter where everyone is fighting off one bug or another. Our bodies are doing their best but everyone could probably use an immunity boost right now, or really good cold meds if you are already suffering with the sniffles. Until February 5th, save […]


  • Gussied Up Plus-Size Clothing Boutique on Bathurst

    Shopping for plus-size clothing in Toronto that is stylish, on trend and locally sourced can be challenging if you don’t know where to go. Even boutiques that make an effort to offer sizes over 14 often only carry limited stock and may not have a wide selection. Gussied Up on Bathurst has been offering fabulous […]


  • Scoop on Hockey: Leafs Weekend

    by S Ferguson A mixed weekend for the Leafs. Brutal loss Friday to the Ottawa Senators, Auston Matthews goes on the IR, but then a big win Sunday evening over the Washington Capitals.  That win was even sweeter because it was the 1,000th game played by John Tavares who got two assists as well. One more […]


  • Watching Toronto Marlies Games

    The Toronto Marlies are the American Hockey League affiliates of the Toronto Maple Leafs. You can watch Marlies home games at Coca-Cola Coliseum, and every once in a while (Boxing Day and Family Day for example) they play at the Scotiabank Arena. It’s a great way to see some pretty amazing hockey for a fraction […]


  • A Visit to Chanel at Yorkdale Inspired By Celebrity Makeup Artist Angela Levin

    By John-Paul Ricchio @johnpaulricchio I was at Yorkdale today at Holt Renfrew, a fabulous store that I have been going to since I was a little boy (5 years old) with my beloved mother Marianne Ricchio. I would watch her put on her makeup and delighted at the joy it brought her to sweep on […]


  • Watching Rugby in Toronto

    What happened to the Toronto Wolfpack? It’s been awhile since rugby fans have been able to enjoy a Wolfpack game in Toronto at Lamport Stadium. The Toronto Wolfpack shut down in 2020 due to financial difficulties brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, and that was the end of rugby’s only trans-Atlantic team. The Super League […]


  • Revolver Pizza in Mimico

    Just before the pandemic lockdowns started back in March 2020, a new pizza place opened on Royal York Road right by San Remo Bakery, south of Evans. Revolver quickly became our favourite pizza place in the city. In my opinion it’s the best pizza in Toronto. I like a thin melty crust that is slightly […]


  • Jimmy’s Coffee on Dundas St. West

    Visited the Jimmy’s Coffee location at 2210 Dundas St. West (north of Roncesvalles) for the first time yesterday… what a fabulous cozy spot with a perfect coffee shop vibe. The barista told me this location really caters to people coming in to set up their laptops and work, and they really take care to make […]


  • Visiting Toronto’s Distillery District in Winter

    Every February one of the many ways we celebrate my son and brother’s birthday is by taking a trip to the Distillery District. The last few years we have made the Toronto Light Fest our destination, but the festival has been paused during the pandemic so instead we take a trip to visit the shops, […]


  • The Real Kim’s Convenience Store Location in Toronto

    Now that the building that houses the iconic Kim’s Convenience store is up for sale, I wanted to snap some pics of the beloved shop where the TV series was filmed (the exterior scenes; the interior scenes were shot in a studio.) Located on Queen St. E. in the Moss Park neighbourhood of Toronto, the […]


  • Ontario’s Butter Tart Trail: Holtom’s Bakery In Erin

    The autumn colours are spectacular this year so we wanted to take a drive outside the city to take them all in. It’s always nice to have a tasty destination so we decided to head to a bakery in the town of Erin on Ontario’s butter tart trail. Holtom’s has been baking their delicious pastries […]


  • Jen Lewin’s THE POOL at Lights on Stratford

    We drove to the Lights on Stratford Winter Festival to see internationally renowned artist Jen Lewin’s THE POOL. This interactive exhibit, which has been travelling since 2008, is a huge field of concentric circles that swirl with light when touched. You activate the large circular pads by walking or jumping across them. It’s an amazing […]


  • Our Walk-in Closet Consignment Store

    The first designer dress I ever purchased was a vintage one, from an incredible consignment store in Toronto called Our Walk-in Closet Consignment. It was a cocktail-length Oscar de la Renta and it was on sale for $25. At the time, Sex and the City was airing and I was obsessed with Sarah Jessica Parker’s […]
