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.[…]

Most Awesome Fall Adventures in Thunder Bay

Written for CBC’s Fresh Air morning show on CBC Radio One. Aired Saturday October 5th, 2019, live from Thunder Bay, Ontario. As dazzling colours begin to transform the landscape, they say you will fall in love with Thunder Bay at this time of year and it’s absolutely true.

This is 35.

Those that know me… know I love birthdays. My birthday, your birthday, your friend’s birthday. BIRTHDAYS!!! Yes, you’ve been to my weeklong celebrations. But for some reason this year is different. 35 is definitely a hard year to swallow. I remember thinking 30 was a little scary, but this birthday forces me into a totally new age bracket— I am now “35 and over”, which spans from 35 until… I’m pretty sure, the end 😉   I really can’t tell which one is more horrifying…the actual number 35, or saying it out loud. Thirty- five. Thirty-five. No matter how you see[…]

King of All Spaces and Places

It’s the Godzilla of nightlife in Thunder Bay. Well actually, it’s the three headed dragon that is Godzilla’s arch enemy— bigger and golden. The new King Ghidrah that is located above Sovereign Room, (ya I always wondered what was up that magical, twisty staircase as well), is a super sleek lounge that combines sultry Asian design elements with a relaxed energy and style.  The intimate, modern space, that you might have known as the Dragon Lounge back in the day, is bathed with Sakura accents, emerald blue bench seating, and exposed original gold walls, giving guests a circa 1950’s vintage[…]

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[…]
