 The camper bar at the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler.

For the 2018 rendition of Cornucopia, Whistler’s 22nd annual celebration of food and drink, I was only able to make it for one night because of conflicting plans next week. (Note to self: check calendar before doing any November scheduling!)

But if you’re going to do it, do it right, right?

The Four Seasons Resort in the Upper Village is Whistler’s only five-star...

There’s music playing and a whole lotta fun and feel-good vibes, especially when people start reclining their chairs back and even doing a the “wave” among those who don’t mind feel as if they’re going to falling backward from so high up off the ground.

There’s lunch, dinner, brunch, and even late-hour happy hour experiences, with prices starting at $149 per person.

Dinner in the Sky was founded in Belgium over 30 years ago and...

Lunges. Lots and lots of lunges. 

Today, I got to attend a workout hosted by KIND Snacks, a New York-based company that makes healthy, flavourful bars and other guilt-free treats. 

We had a 45-minute sweat session at the Westin Bayshore with a killer view: the pool, Coal Harbour, StanleyPark, the Lions Gate Bridge, and the North Shore mountains: talk about inspiration! 

Led by a handful of YVR fitness and yoga instructo...

It's not easy maintaining a blog as a working mom, but so many women out there have inspired me to give it another go. 

So welcome back, and stay tuned for blurbs on food, wine, health, and fitness, all the things that make up the good life!

Last fall, I started trail running with a group of amazing moms along the rugged trails in our spectacular neighbourhood of Lynn Valley. This weekend, I’m joining them on my first half-marathon, and I can’t wait.

The Half Corked Marathon takes place on Saturday (May 23) through the wineries and vineyards of Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country. You read that right. This is my kind of run!

Inspired by the legendary Medoc Marathon in Borde...

Every November we go to Tofino for a dual-family surf trip, and every year we take turns making dinner, eight of us cozily packed into a one-bedroom hotel room. This year was a first for us in establishing “date day” for each set of parents, with both couples picking Wolf in the Fog for lunch. 

Voted recently as Best New Restaurant in Canada by EnRoute, it’s got an upstairs dining room for dinner and a smaller bear den downstai...

I had the chance to visit Mission Hill Winery a little while back, and... Wow. If you've never seen the jaw-droppingly beautiful estate , put it at the top of your list. 

In fact, if you're looking for something to do if school doesn't resume in these parts soon, I'd recommend finding a way to get out of work and go on a road trip. 

And if you're lamenting the lack of resources to visit the grapevines of Italy, take heart...

Sure, Chicago is a great walking city, but some tourists just can't resist those Segways.

With speakeasy-style spots like the Drake Hotel’s Coq d’Or lounge, which opened the day after Prohibition ended in 1933, and Buddy Guy’s Legends blues club, Chicago is home to some of the world’s coolest bars. Call them just some of the Windy City’s Hip Places You’ll Never See if You’re Travelling With Kids. 

But if you do have tiny...

We just came back from two nights to Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound, Washington. 

Let’s start with the good stuff: the kids loved it: the waterslides, the wave pool, the basketball pool, the obstacle course, and the Magic Quest.


Now, onto the stuff no one tells you.
 

- There is a US$14.99 “resort fee” PER DAY that isn’t included in the rates you see when you book. Supposedly this covers things like “free” Wi-Fi (which,...
