Small businesses are essential for our economy and are a HUGE  part of the fabric that makes up our community. Familiar faces behind these establishments are our family, neighbours, and friends, and all help create this place we call home. Remember the time they donated that prize for your shag, sponsored your baseball team, made delicious eats for your event, or helped you create that memorable moment with your family that you won’t ever forget? Although we know they are all tough cookies, most are feeling a financial strain right now, and are worried about the future. So if you need to buy something—[…]

Bay Awesome 2020 TBay Top 20 Holiday Gift List

’Tis the season to start thinking about Christmas shopping. Cue the carols!! But, like most things in 2020, the way you’ll check everyone off your gift list is bound to be a little bit different this year, as long-standing holiday shopping traditions are being put to the test. Now I know you might think it’s easier to go online and Amazon Prime it, but this year, more than ever,  it’s super important to SUPPORT LOCAL. Shopping at home and in your local shops, not only benefits the community, entrepreneurs, talented artisans and local families, but you’re also going to find the most[…]

The Bay Awesome Tbay 2020 Summer Bucket List

Ya, I know your summer vacation plans have been derailed by the pandemic, but that doesn’t  mean we’re going to spend the next two months watching Netflix all day. No! (Because we actually watched everything on it already.) But seriously, don’t let the season pass you by. Make the most of what’s in  your very own backyard. Make it a #tbaycation!  Sunset at 10pm? Not a problem. Sunrise at 6am?  You got it. Frankly, why would we even be spending a single second inside when it’s beautiful all day long? Aside from the sun being on its best and brightest[…]

Life in Full Bloom.

I was having cocktails with one of my best friends the other night, going on and on about that new Beyoncé documentary on Netflix… you know, the one that chronicles everything that went into that unforgettable Coachella performance, (the show that was sooooo worth the midweek sleep deprivation). Anyhow, halfway through talking about the Blue Ivy appearance, I noticed she wasn’t listening to a word I said… HELLO!! Beyoncé … Blue Ivy…personal stories from the Queen Bey. How rude. I knew I wasn’t boring her with my conversation,  so why the hell was she not paying attention!? After calling her out on her[…]

Bay Mine.

It’s the time of year for cards with red hearts, chocolates, lame teddy bears, flowers, heart shaped boxes of candy, forced dinner dates, and  public demonstrations of pure admiration. As you can tell, I have mixed feelings towards Valentine’s Day. Ya I know, how novel… a 30-something year old, independent woman that doesn’t like a day about couples and LOVE. Oh stop. No, I don’t sit home alone, belting out the new Ariana Grande album eating ice cream with a dozen cats.  I don’t like cats; And romantic hardship isn’t my reason for feeling blah about the holiday. Very much like why[…]
