Jen is a foodie at heart. We have travelled quite a few places together and I can always count on her to take us to the best restaurants. Well, our visit to NOPI did not disappoint and my delight at the amazing cuisine wasn’t surprising!
We are both fans of Yotam Ottolenghi, an Israeli chef known for his incredible cookbooks, some of which specialize in vegetarian fare. Most of his dishes also have a Middle-Eastern influence, so expect flavourful pairings of spices, textures and colours. His cooking is influenced by Syrian, Turkish, Lebanese, Armenian, Iranian and Israeli traditional dishes with a Western flare. Continue reading NOPI – A Yotam Ottolenghi Masterpiece of a Restaurant
I LOVE LONDON. It’s just amazing. This city, steeped in history, has such an amazing energy, such a cool vibe…I feel it was blessed with way more coolness than any other place on Earth. Every time I visit, I do not want to leave. I want to be one of those British cool girls, walking down Regent Street like it’s a runway. I want to spend my days touring Westminster Abbey, exploring the British Museum, shopping at Selfridge’s and discovering amazing restaurants. Continue reading Style Domination Goes to London, Part 2
I am immensely proud to announce that I was featured on YOW City Style! About a month ago, I did a little photoshoot for this up and coming style, culture and entertainment website.

Here are my shots from our day of shooting:
Loving my street style looks! I can’t believe this is me! LOL!
As I packed last night for my trip to London, I realized that I my handbag collection is pretty weak. Back when I had a lot of disposable income (pre-cars and pre-mortgage), I used to treat myself to a new designer bag once a year. It has been a reaaaal long time since that happened! My last amazing handbag purchase was a bronze metallic Prada Vitello Daino bag. While I love it, it’s very “autumn” looking and it’s also very delicate (metallic leather does not like scratches!!).

I’m super excited! I will be heading to London soon to visit my dear friend Jen. I wish so much that she lived closer, but hopping on a plane to visit her in one of my favourite cities in the world ain’t so bad!
I love everything about London. The sites, the history, the architecture, Princess Kate, London’s amazing energy…it can do wrong in my eyes. Continue reading Style Domination Goes to London, Part 1
This winter was “way harsh, Tai.” Sorry. Just watched Clueless…
My skin was ravaged from the winter dryness and indoor heating. While I have oily skin, my face always felt like it was going to crack, which eventually resulted in breakouts. I hate nothing more that freaking breakouts. I had to take action. Continue reading Style Domination Beauty Review: Dermalogica Active Moist Moisturizer
The other day, my friend Vanessa and I popped into Sephora as she needed some new foundation. I tagged along to scope out some new products and I’m glad I did! That visit proved truly educational! Now, I find shopping for foundation extremely daunting. There must be a million options out there, further complicated by the fact that I am a woman of colour, and finding that perfect match is near impossible. Continue reading Style Domination Beauty Review: Sephora + Pantone Color IQ
Pure Yoga is a popular yoga studio here in Ottawa. Their classes are fantastic, and the location I frequent offers up cute yoga wear by such brands as Teeki, Pure Apparel, etc.

As some of you may know, I’ll be running the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend 5K on May 23rd. I wouldn’t quite say I’ve been training as I run 5K all the time, but I have been out running quite a bit over the past few weeks.
I’ll be running more and more outside as the mercury blissfully climbs past 0ºC, taking advantage of warm temperatures, sunny skies and fresh air. Continue reading Need a Running Break? Walking and Yoga are Your Friends
