EATS: CNE 2019

Hello everyone! This post is LONG overdue but the end of summer was spent preparing for the new school year. The HF enjoyed another annual visit to the CNE and indulged in some pretty amazing eats. We went on the Saturday of Food Truck Frenzy weekend and were treated to some beautiful weather. Continue reading

EATS: Hamilton Fare Way at the RBC Canadian Open

Hello everyone! This weekend, the Hamilton Golf and Country Club is hosting the annual RBC Canadian Open and the HF and I will be attending on the Saturday with a couple of our friends. I was recently invited to the media preview of the new food initiative that will be open during the tournament between the 17th and 18th holes: the Hamilton Fare Way.

Several great Hamilton restaurants will be there serving up some delicious eats ranging from $10-$20 and there is something for everyone. There will also be live music and art installations set up to showcase the awesomeness that is #HamOnt.

EATS: Rony’s Rotisserie

Hello everyone! If you follow me on IG (and if you don’t – @staygorgeousLC follow now!) you’ll know that nearly every Friday, the HF and I go to Rony’s Rotisserie for dinner. I honestly can’t even believe that I hadn’t written up a post yet so better late than never. Rony’s is a super casual restaurant with dine-in and takeout options and EVERYTHING on the menu is delicious. Housemade yogurt is used for the chicken marinade as well as all of the sauces and it is cooked directly over charcoal. GUYS. I seriously will crave Rony’s during the week and am so sad that it’s so far away from Brampton. The chicken is THE BEST I’ve ever had. BUT WAIT, MY VEGETARIAN FRIENDS! They also have super delicious falafel which is fried to order and never dry. Crispy outer shell and fluffy inner filling that is PERFECTLY seasoned. Seriously, everything Rony makes is perfection.

MaskerAide Makeover!*

Hello everyone! Facial sheet masks are super popular and with good reason – they’re quick, easy to use, minimal mess, and super effective. One of my favourite brands is MaskerAide since they have a great range of masks to tackle any occasion. Whether you’re prepping for a night out or just need some self-care and relaxation, they’ve got you covered with their different formulations with Korean skincare sensibility.

Their main line of masks recently got a makeover – slightly bigger packaging with a more modern image (new ones on top, older ones on the bottom.) While the outside is different, the inside is still the same – beautifully drenched masks that make your skin feel super hydrated and healthy. 

I find that not only is my skin soft and hydrated right after I take off the mask (I usually get it sit for 15-20 minutes), it also restores radiance and helps give my face a healthy glow for a few days afterwards.

You can buy each mask individually for $6 CDN each, or for great value, they offer an 8 pack of masks for $36 CDN! With free shipping in the US and Canada on orders over $30, you may as well try a bunch – you won’t regret it! (If you missed my review on their Bubble Bubble Pop mask, read it here!)

For more information and to shop their entire collection, visit http://www.maskeraide.com. Have you tried anything from MaskerAide? Let me know in the comments! Thanks so much for stopping by!

OOAK Spring 2019 Haul

Hello everyone! My favourite shopping event is back again but this time, if you blink, you might miss it. The Spring One of a Kind Show kicked off yesterday (March 27) and runs only until Sunday, March 31st. Tonight, they are staying open until 11pm so if you see anything from my haul that sparks your interest, head over to the Enercare Centre ASAP.

This time around, I didn’t take any pictures of booths because I really just needed to enjoy the experience and talk to old friends and new vendors while indulging in some much needed retail therapy. Continue reading

NEW COFFEE SHOP: Phin Coffee Bar

Hello everyone! I was checking out TasteHamOnt’s list of what was open and closed on Family Day and came across a new name in Hamilton. I immediately took to Instagram to lurk and discovered Phin Coffee was having their soft opening weekend and that Monday was only the 2nd day. So the HF (who is a mega coffee geek and got me into vanilla lattes bc he would make them for me at his place) and I headed out to Westdale to check out this new shop.

There’s no signage outside as of yet so it’s easy to miss if you’re driving. They’re in a white brick building next to a crossfit gym and when you enter, it’s immediately cozy and calming.  Continue reading

EATS: Yasu

Hello everyone! One of my foodie dreams recently came true when the HF took me out for omakase at Yasu. Omakase translates to “I’ll leave it up to you” so it’s basically chef’s choice. At Yasu they serve the most amazing sushi with ingredients from all over the world, shipped daily so it’s super fresh. I had first heard about this place through my friend Laura who is half Japanese and lived in Japan for a few years, and when she said she almost cried at how delicious the tuna was, I knew it had to be added on my ultimate must dine list. WARNING: this post is VERY FOOD PICTURE HEAVY so you’ve been warned lol.  Continue reading
