#LexGoFurther to Southern Florida!
I know I already told you I’m headed Disney-bound, but the trip doesn’t stop there. We’re driving down and spending a couple of days in West Palm Beach area as well!

Going to Disney World – Need Your Tips #LexGoFurther
After 48 years, we’re  going to Disney.  Walt Disney World in Florida to be exact. We’ve spent a couple of weeks doing our research, going through the site, talking to friends, talking to each other.  I’ve created a Pinterest board, and I’ve reviewed the Disney Food Blog – disneyfoodblog.com It’s overwhelmi [...]

I Need A Haircut – I Need Your Advice
My last haircut(s) were in February. Yes… February.  Dani did a great job, which is why it has lasted so long, but she lives in New Brunswick and I need a haircut badly!  Preferably one where I won’t have to resort to taking scissors to my new haircut again. Of course, the question always is where to go?  I’m always on the look out for new pl [...]

Jonesing For Dim Sum!

Jonesing For Dim Sum!
Sometimes the cravings for dim sum come on hard and fast!  You want cup after cup after cup of tea for no reason. The urge to have fluffy steamed char sui bau, the craving for baby octopus in curry sauce, and of course potstickers so when I realized I would have access to a car for lunch tomorrow I decided- Dim Sum in Markham! But here’ [...]

Sick Flicks – What To Watch When You Are Sick
I’ve spent the better part of the last 2 days curled up popping echinacea with a hot mug of NeoCitran, a big box of kleenex and Netflix.   With my duvet wrapped around me and pillows propping me up, I scroll through the endless movies options but I seem to find myself watching schlock!  Usually Chick Flicks & Rom-Com schlock. Help me inte [...]

None of my smart phones will upgrade to the latest OS so it’s time for a tech upgrade. And I’m looking for all the Fanboys and Fangirls out there to weigh in.  Tell me what you think, why you love (or hate) your phone. Why you hate (or love) the phones I’m considering, and what you think will suit.  You are smart, you tell m [...]

Breaking the Virgin Diet

Breaking the Virgin Diet
I figure if you are going to reintroduce gluten, sugar, and dairy back into your diet, why not do a three-fer! At last that way what ever payback you experience, and I expect it will be uncomfortable, unpleasant, and unfriendly, it’s worth it. Right? Hey, there’s a rumour there’s peach in this peaches & cream doughnut t [...]

Restructuring Unsweetened.ca

Almost Famous Competition

Almost Famous Competition
I am almost famous. Famous enough that people I’ve never met will stop me in the airport to say: “aren’t you Alexa Clark?” But not famous enough to get free plane rides. Famous enough to have a stalker But not famous enough that they know they are my stalker. Famous enough to be considered as a guest judge in the S.Pe [...]

What Comforts You?

What Comforts You?
What did your mommy or daddy used to make you when you were sick at home? And if you have them, what do you make for your kids? As per my last post, I’m home sick, and a little thought on twitter inspired conversation about what we were given when we were home sick: alexaclark: Why does it seem SO wrong to eat toast slathered w/ butter & [...]

How Do You Do It?

How Do You Do It?
Every so often I get bogged down in tools.  Not hammers and screwdrivers but technologies tools that promise the world and deliver, well, mostly a monthly ding on the credit card. Since watching my roommate Keith design and redesign study organizing processes, methods & charts during university, I’ve been kind of addicted to trying [...]

The Smell of Hot Pavement

The Smell of Hot Pavement
lili skipping – photo courtesy of phitar The smell of hot pavement makes me crave a new skipping rope.  A brand new, pink plastic, skipping rope.  I can feel myself stretching it, my right foot holding it on the ground while I pull up as hard as I can on both handles. I can feel myself swinging and skipping and tripping… hastily l [...]
