Man, I can’t wait till spring.  I can’t wait to see the cherry blossoms, shop for spring fashion, and dine on the patio.  But in the meantime, I’ll have to embrace winter.

I don’t like to wear sweaters, but I was drawn to this colour and it was on sale (that darn word).

We’re having our Chinese New Year’s Eve feast tonight.  Make sure you follow me on instagram to see what I’ll be indulging in.

Kale Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing and Giveaway Winner


IMG_5477 (1)

Like everyone in the new year, I tried to eat healthy (but you know that only lasts for the first few days).

I stumbled upon this recipe and it’s a winner.  It’s full of fibers, high in iron and filled with powerful antioxidants.  In addition, it’s delicious and filling (well, kind of).  If you like kale salad, I highly recommend trying this out.  And don’t forget to massage the kale with lemon and salt.  It breaks down the cell wall so the kale will transform into tender, silky greens.

Thank you so much to all of you who entered my giveaway!  Congrats to Maryann!

I love reading all your comments.  Many of you gave me some good ideas for my future holidays.  And I’m so proud that some of you wanted to visit Canada particularly Vancouver.  I just love my city.

Review: Poo-Pourri

IMG_9846 IMG_9848Poo-Pourri (Original Scent)

IMG_9847 IMG_9869Cirque Midnight Summer

Do you guys remember the show when Dr. Oz popped by The Oprah Winfrey Show and talked about poop?  It was interesting, wasn’t it?  I sure learned a lot about bowel movements.  Man, I miss Oprah’s show so much.

Anyway, when Tiffany asked me if I was interested in reviewing a toilet deodorizer, I didn’t even hesitate.  It sounds like fun.  I mean, poop is part of our life.  It shouldn’t be something shameful to talk about.

The product arrived quickly and well packaged.  Poo-Pourri is like a miracle in a bottle.  How it works is, before you need to do your business, you squirts 3-5 sprays into the toilet bowl.  You will quickly see a cloudy film over the top of the water.  Poo-Pourri works by trapping the embarrassing odour underneath this film while you do your thing.  With an infusion of bergamot, lemongrass, and lemon, it leaves a pleasant citrusy scent.  And if you’re sharing a washroom, your roommate or partner would never know what you did inside. :)

This product works exactly as they claimed.  I would recommend it to anyone who needs this product, as a gag gift, or just a good thing to have around the house or the workplace.  If you live in Canada or U.S., you can buy it here.

And if you haven’t seen this brilliant video yet, please take a moment.  It’s hilarious!

In addition to this spray, Tiffany also included a bottle of Cirque Nail Polish.  What a sweetie!  It’s a beautiful cobalt blue with shimmer.  The formula was a bit sheer and it required three coats for an opaque finish.  Thanks again Tiffany!

Disclosure:  I was sent a bottle of Poo-Pourri for the purpose of this review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

It seems like all the bloggers are wearing similar outfits lately – a beanie, camel coat and converse sneakers.  Of course, I’m no exception, not only does it look chic but it’s comfortable as well.  How do you guys like to dress in the winter?
