Remember that Pringles fiesta party I had the other day? Pringles sent over a case of their new tortilla crisps for me to snack on. Since I can’t shouldn’t eat them all myself, I shared with the office. They’re long gone now but I’ve got something for YOU this round. Scroll down for details!
Pringles has put together a prize pack perfect for chip lovers everywhere. I want YOU to experience the playful fun only Pringles can deliver, now in their delicious tortilla crisps. Imagine, you could be the office hero too!
The new chips come in three flavours – Nacho Cheese, Zesty Ranch, and Original. The nacho cheese ones are my favourite. Check out their Facebook page to see some of the fun vides they’ve made with the luchador crew.

Happy Friday! I don’t often blog about food but I made something reallllllly amazing for family breakfast at the cottage last weekend. Sharing with you today in case you’ve got someone you’d like to impress. My creation, Reese Peanut Butter Spread French Toast Sandwich! I used a pancake batter to lather a Reese sandwich made with white bread and then French toast it.
Reese contacted me and asked if I’d tried their latest new product. As it turns out, I had JUST created this. It’s quick and easy (not so healthy) breakfast! YOLO!
Reese Spreads French Toast Sandwich
1/2 cup milk
1 cup Flour
1 tbl spoon Sugar
q1 tbl spoon Cinnamon
1 tbl spoon Baking powder
Maple Syrup – as much as you want!
Strawberries & whipped cream to top it off
Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Put some butter on there.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder. Whisk it.
In a small bowl, mix together the milk, egg. Whisk again.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until combined but still slightly lumpy.
Put Reese spread on bread into a sandwich. Make 4-6.
Dip each sandwich in batter and put on the grill.
Flip after 3 min or until fully cooked. Should be a bit brown. Add more butter to pan if necessary.
Set aside or on a warm plate until they’re all ready.
Serve with maple syrup, whipped cream, and fresh fruit, as desired.
Add bacon on the side!
To make all your Reese peanut butter and chocolate dreams come true, they’ve included a prize pack worth $100 for you. Simply enter below and I’ll pick a random winner next week. For more recipe ideas visit the Hershey website or find Reese on Facebook. If you end up making this PLEASE tweet me a photo. Or invite me over…. 😜!

The first person to successfully find the influencer wins the prize.
Earlier this week I announced my partnership with Woodbine Racetrack for race season. I’l be attending all major races AND getting dressed up for The Queen’s Plate on July 5th. This is us there last year. It was so much fun. I love taking a seat and along with the actual horse racing, seeing all the hats and outfits.
This year Woodbine Racetrack is hosting a contest where you can win a $1,000 gift card at the end of the season. You could really turn that prize into a big win if you’re lucky! It’s quite easy to enter, details below.
By posting your selfie at the track with the #OfftotheRaces hashtag you’ve got a chance to win a $1000 Woodbine Racetrack gift card at the end of the horse racing season. Please remember, your selfie MUST be taken in front of the racetrack!
On another note, tickets for The Queen’s Plate on July 5th are now on sale! Get yours here. Looking forward to this, need to find an outfit and HUGE hat!
Please take note of the humour, I don’t ACTUALLY brush my teeth with dish soap or cook hot dogs with on candles. The top video in pink with the hanging clothes is my fav. We had a lot of laughs shooting these!
Eyewear have always been a staple in my wardrobe. I’ve always had a large variety of costume glasses of different shapes and sizes. I’d much rather have a bunch of affordable styles instead of one or two fancy ones. I like variety but I’ve also been known to lose and break them (unfortunately!).
Late last year I was contacted by Polette eyewear in France and offered a spot on their blogger team. In exchange for sharing my fav glasses from the site, I get to pick a couple pairs EACH MONTH. Perks of the job guys, squeeee! I can’t wait to stock up and share new shades every couple weeks.
My First Polette Eyewear Order:
Devil – rose coloured lenses
Léosummer – yellow/green fashion lenses
Gracie Mile B – blue/black lenses
Polette has a pretty neat story. Founded by Pierre Wizman, a young entrepreneur at 16, he launched the website in 2011 with his biz partner and just like that, they were in business. Their goal was to be the only intermediary between the consumer and manufacturer to cut down on price without skimping on quality. When you visit polette.com you’ll see there’s a wide selection of styles starting at $6.99.
One of the cool things about placing your order is first you pick the frame, then lenses (anti-scratch, reflective), then lens tint (ex. red/black), and finally tint level (red ones above are 85%). I didn’t really understand this at first but I know for next time now!
I’ll be posting my new glasses monthly as they arrive. Would you like a pair too? It’s been ages since I did a contest so enter below and we’ll send you your choice of glasses including prescription if you need them (mine are not prescription). Contest doesn’t include Vintage or L’Atelier collections.
Loving this remix of Tove Lo’s ‘Stay High. I put all the recent songs from my Shazam (music discovery app) and put them in an Rdio playlist. You can check it out here.
“I eat my dinner in my bathtub, Then I go to sex clubs, Watching freaky people gettin’ it on, It doesn’t make me nervous, If anything I’m restless, Yeah, I’ve been around and I’ve seen it all”
Next weekend I’m going to The Everything To Do With Sex Show for my first time even thought it’s been in Toronto for 15 years. The three day event runs October 24th-26th at The Direct Energy Centre and features all kinds of seminars, art, wellness, celebrities, and other fun stuff to do with sex and romance.
It’s a great time of year for this show because we’re about to start hibernation and if we have a winter like last year, we’ll all be spending heaps of time at home. And hopefully not alone!
I creeped the event website and found this group of cool peeps I can vouch for that are worth checking out at the show:
Other things I reco checking out are burlesque, the leather, latex, and the exhibitor floor. I’m not sure if you have ever worn a latex outfit but if you have you know how amazing it is. I used to have a gorgeous long latex shirt but it ripped. These are a few of my fav Gaga latex outfits.
I recently had the opportunity to travel to Montreal with their tourism board to learn about their upcoming food festival, MTL à TABLE. I had an awesome time discovering their culinary scene, meeting other bloggers/media, and being back in my second fav Canadian city. This is part one of my experience.
Scroll down to see what I got up to and get details on how YOU can win a round trip, including airfare to Montreal to experience MTL à TABLE for yourself!
MY MTL à TABLE EXPERIENCE – Part One
I arrived at Renard Artisan Bistro at 9am to greet Chef Jason Nelson and my blogger partner in crime Jason from shutupandeat.ca. After visiting the smallest coffee shop in all of Montreal and we decided to venture 45min outside the city to get local meat, wine, and cheese, a trip Chef often takes on Sunday afternoons.
It was about 10am when we did a wine tasting at Vignoble Vertefeuille. I loved being at the farm. The air was fresh and the wine was good. Not a bad start to the day! Chef gets chicken, rabbit and wine from the farm on a regular basis.
Our next stop was Fromagerie Au Gré des Champs where we sampled cheese and said hello to the animals. It was my first time at a fromagerie and I have never tasted cheese so delicious!
This award winning fromagerie is one of very few in Quebec that uses raw unpasturized milk to make the cheese. It was DELICIOUS!
Love this beautiful lady.
We had heaps of laughs on the way back to the city where blogger Jason from shutupandeat.ca and I met up with the other bloggers for lunch.
Later in the day I really got my hands dirty prepping dinner. And by dirty I mean I got blood on my hands! This is the blood used for blood pudding. I tried not to think about it too much. Look at my crazy face, ahhhh!
Stay tuned for the next post about the rest of my MTL à TABLE experience…until then enter the contest below to win a MTL à TABLE experience for yourself.

Hi guys! Let me tell you about my new shoes and how you can win a pair!
I recently got to check out the latest from Cat Footwear and was once again impressed with the stylish and dainty yet rugged styles. You’ll recognize the logo from construction equipment and big machines but little did you know they also make really nice shoes. You might remember a while back when I got my first pair Cat of boots, Stella.
The leather is SO soft and I wore these babies for an entire winter and walked all over the city, and to different cities on my travels. They are very comfortable and as time goes on, they age like a fine wine.
From the Spring 2014 look-book I picked the ‘Mahoney’ in Nile. They are a clean classic oxford with a nice solid sole and leather upper. I’ve got a pair with your name on them!
Enter below to have a pair of the same shoes sent to YOU. We’ll be twinsies and if we are ever in the same place at the same time wearing them we are totally taking a shoes selfie. Contest is open for one week and open to anyone in Canada.
I went last year. It was awesome. I’m giving away two weekend passes from the peeps at Arts & Crafts + Field Trip and I would LOVE to see you there. They were awesome to hook me up with a pair of passes too, so when you win we can jam together. There are so many great bands! See below to win passes.
Travel and accommodations not included. Open to all ages. Bring your kids, your mom, your grandpa, it’s fun for the whole family. Raise your hands and CHEER because summer is finally HERE! Contest closes Saturday and winner will be notified by email.
