Hate to admit it, but winter is on its way. My toes are little baby ice cubes. Someone pass the Snuggie.

FOOD & WINE

FOOD & WINE

Last year was our first year attending the notorious food & wine expo held at the MTCC and it was quite a fun experience. It was great to try some new things; different wines pairings, some tasty grub and we even got to meet Matt and Steve, the founders of those delicious spicy beans! We could not hold back when we saw the Fireball station and spent more tickets than I would like to remember, meanwhile trying to make best friends with the promo girls for more Fireball swag (we wore it proud!). All in all, fun night, expect to drop a minimum of $50 if you want the full experience but keep in mind not to go with a big group because it is craayy busy. Cheers!

THE SELFIE

THE SELFIE

I have a pronounced love/hate relationship with The Selfie. The more obvious reasons are why I hate them, as they follow suit with the general publics similar dislike. But the reasons I love them dig deep into my self-image as I realize I am sufficiently satisfied with my life and the way I look without having photo documented proof. Its bad enough that 98% of social media results in serious FOMO because eevvveryone’s life seems better than mine but it is the face shots that I find so unnecessary that really grind my gears. These photos have no back story, are not tied to any good times just an extraordinarily vain thought of “oh… don’t I just look fabulous today. The world should definitely know about it.” This article below left me in stitches and anyone suffering from selfie-addiction should read it to educate themselves on what the world really thinks of their duck-face-bikini-mirror selfie.

BREAKFAST FOR DUMMIES

BREAKFAST FOR DUMMIES

Okay IRVers, our whole lives we’ve heard it is so important it is to eat breakfast however day after day we pick up a coffee and forgo starting our metabolism with some sort of solid food. Quinoa porridge is actually the answer to all problems. It can be made in a big batch, customizable to include any toppings your heart desires and really fills you up. This morning I added some almonds, frozen berries and a dollop of yoghurt and was just on cloud nine. Give it a try once and I promise, you will be making it on the regular. Check out some of the recipes below:
