I remember first meeting Alex Lacroix at a now defunct Mexican restaurant in the distillery district of Toronto for a media event introducing a new tequila to me in 2015-ish. This was before I had ever really explored Mexico – not the beaches and resorts we all love, but Mexico City, Oaxaca and the interior that truly define the soul of a country I could see myself calling home.

Working for yourself may seem fabulous but it’s a lot of juggling and just keeping your head above water. Like I am holding my breath and hoping for this rough patch to just finally be done.Continue Reading Read More »
As the summer officially starts to wind down, it’s time to think about the Labour Day long weekend and planning weekends in the fall – which I have to admit is my favourite season of all. Ontario offers some of the most beautiful destinations, and while many of us dream of beaches and plane trips, I am also here to remind you that a perfect weekend can happen just a few hours away. So it’s time to pack up your special someone, grab the dog, and come along with me to one the best kept secret Ontario has to offer.Continue Reading Read More »
