A night of Caribbean cuisine

May 18, 2019

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to attend Good Buds Bakery Caribbean cuisine pop up. I must say it was nice to be able to get all dolled up, and join my two favourite guys for dinner. It was a gloomy cold night, as we jumped out of the car in mid-February, I can only remember the profanities coming out of my husband’s mouth cursing the day we moved back to Winnipeg. We did the half run/half walk/half…

I could literally purchase my summer wardrobe for under $200. Those were the days. I never thought much about the construction of the garmet; where it came from or the…

3 month review of OTF

April 17, 2019

As I walked in to the studio and saw splats of orange covering the walls, I couldn’t help but wonder if the apple pie and ice cream I had for lunch was going to slow me down. It was three days after Christmas and I found myself staring at a mirror in my bathroom, and like most people I promised myself 2019 would be my bitch. As a platinum level donor to the local Goodlife gym, I decided after two…
