Easter – From a Chocoholic’s Perspective

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Easter-Tin-PCI love Easter, not least because I’m chocoholic – I just can’t resist the stuff and at this time of the year I can indulge myself without feeling guilty, well not too much anyway! One of my favourite places to shop for Easter chocolate is Purdy’s – this year I plan to buy their vintage rabbit tins full of Purdys Chocolates milk and dark chocolates as gifts for my family. For me, I love plain chocolate and I’ll pick up one of their chocolate bunnies as my guilty pleasure. And yes, like 76% of all North Americans I’ll eat the ears first! Another favourite of mine is Rogers’ Chocolates milk chocolate jelly bean bark – now there’s an Easter treat I can’t wait to get my hands on. (more…)

Spring South East BC Road Trip

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

kim julia RVI love road trips – there’s something about the freedom to go wherever the fancy takes you, stop whenever you see something of interest and the opportunity to eat out every night! Two of my favourite road trip destinations are the Oregon Coast by the Coho Ferry and Southern B.C. In spring the latter wins out for me as there is so much going on across the province. Whether you’re flying into Vancouver, plan a first night at the Accent Inn Vancouver Airport in Richmond or if you’re heading west from Alberta or beyond, you can pick a route that encircles some of the most diverse, and interesting, countryside B.C. has to offer.
