• A Fine Balance.

    Last Monday, after Thanksgiving dinner and 90210 (the orignal!) viewings with friends, I had a great idea for a blog entry. Something to do with thanks and being thankful, but in my slightly drunken state, I decided not to start writing said blog and instead decided to go to sleep. When I awoke the next morning, […]

  • Write Now.

    Remember that promise I made to myself to spend at least thirty minutes of everyday writing? No? Well, neither do I. I mean, I remember taking the time to make the promise, but then I started a new job (not in production, sadly), made some personal changes and voila! my promise disappeared. But not to […]

  • Ready-Set-Go!

    Ever have one of those days where you go through your entire phonebook and text people you haven’t talked to in ages? Hi, long time – let’s do those drinks soon! You’re lonely, but you’re lazy – too tired to call someone. You want to do something, but you want to sit still. I’m having one […]

fitzroy boutique

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of stepping into one of my favourite places in all of Toronto: Fitzroy Boutique. Fitzroy is a seasonal pop-up shop brought to you by the lovely (and fashionable) friends-since-childhood duo, Julie and Ange. Currently housed in BYOB Cocktail Emporium on Queen Street West, the pop-up shop features many Australian […]

Nail Polish!

Nail Candy.

I am obsessed with nail polish. My roommate, Jess, is also obsessed with nail polish. We both paint our nails every few days, carefully choosing which colour we’re going to do next and we’ve collected over fifty bottles of nail polish since we moved in together a year and a half ago. Why the obsession, […]

The Cocktail Menu

The Ace

I’ve been meaning to check out  The Ace  for a while, and after my friend Amy and I decided we wanted some post-work drinks, it seemed like the perfect destination. We got to The Ace just before 7PM on a Thursday evening, and it was full! We gladly put our names down on a waitlist […]

There will be blood orange gimlets.

Sometimes after a long day you need to get together with a friend and make a gimlet. What is a gimlet you ask? A gimlet is a cocktail that features gin and lime juice, traditionally, however this recipe is anything but traditional! We ended up tweaking the recipe Kristin found online so it was a little more […]

A Place Called Home.

I should really have a section on this blog entitled “Homebody” because, well, I love staying at home. Try as I might, the bar scene and I don’t get to spend that much time together. Maybe it’s because I work in a bar, maybe it’s because that $50 I’ll spend on a bar tab will […]

Film Review: Drive

 I love films that are encompassing. You commit to an idea and you are able to follow through with it. I also love juxtaposition. With its hot pink title sequence and a delicious eighties sounding pop soundtrack, Drive offers its viewers a complex and interesting journey that keeps the audience watching with baited breath until […]

Biography

Julia Rowland always knew she’d be in the movie business; when she was a child, Rowland would write, direct and star in countless plays that she performed in her living room to very enthusiastic audiences. As she got older, Rowland perfected her craft and studied with some of the best teachers in Toronto and New […]

weekend update.

In the line of work I’m in (the film biz and the bar biz) it’s very rare that I get a whole weekend off, but when it happens, it’s amazing. Not that I’m the kind of person that has to go out all the time, not at all. I work in a bar several nights […]

Work It.

I was going to write a post about my goals for this year, but instead have scratched it in order to write about my main goal: work. Yes, 2012 is the year where yours truly works her ass off. Why work, you ask? Well, in order to get to where I want to be, I […]
