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.

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[…]

I got it FOR my momma! (A last minute Bay Awesome TBay Gift List)

With Mother’s day just around the corner (THIS SUNDAY), many of you have been asking me for local gift ideas. I know that this year in particular, shopping for the Queen in your life is a little more tricky and stressful, as we can’t go into stores and browse around; But it’s even more of a reason to shop local and support all of our businesses, crafters and makers. So, I have rounded up a couple of my favourite gifts (that are still left in stock)…from breakfast in bed, mimosas, homemade bird houses, Lake Superior beach glass and a pottery mug[…]

At home. Being unproductive.

Social media is making me feel pretty inadequate these days, not to mention antiquated. Every time I do a quick check to see what’s happening out in the world, I’m being convinced that my new found “free time” is in fact, time wasted. Instagram taunting me with these recently showered people who are all shouting “my self-isolation is soooo much cooler than yours!!” As I scroll through my accounts, flooded full of photos and videos of people doing some pretty awesome things…. I first of all wonder, when did everyone become a professional dancer, chef,  workout instructor, etc!? Impressive guys.[…]

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[…]

The Sweet North’s Harry Potter Great Feast: The Most Magical Event of the Year

From the moment I received my personalized letter of acceptance from the Owl Post  (which included the official Hogwart’s crest and gold seal, signed by Professor McGonagall herself) I knew this event was going to be grand.  Hogwarts students and volunteers alike have been sharing photos and videos since the Sunday event, making everyone else in the world who didn’t get to go, jealous— and you have every right to be.  Muggles that were lucky enough to be given one of 49 spots to the Sweet North Great Feast (it sold out in 20 minutes) met at platform 9 -3/4[…]
