Ottawa At It’s Best

By on March 4, 2017

Being an Ottawa native, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to not only talk about my hometown, but also share with you some of the great events that are lined up for the Nation’s Capital.

My article, Enjoying Ottawa in 2017 featured in Modern Mississauga, highlights the amazing attractions and activities that locals and tourists can take part in all-year-round. The article also pays tribute to all the amazing events lined up to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary. It also features the incredible culinary works that some of our local chefs have demonstrated in their new successful establishments.

Regardless of the season, one can enjoy Ottawa’s captivating and multifaceted beauty that can be witnessed all year long.

I am proud to share this article with you and hopefully you will come and visit this beautiful city, that I call home.

Bon Appétit!

Chocolate lovers in the know can't seem to get enough of the decadence that @hummingbirdchocolate provides in ALL of their sweet treats😋😍🍫
.
And if this is news to you, then you can read about my chocolatey sweet experience in the latest edition of @fiftyfivepluslifestylemagazine
Your sweet tooth will thank me 😉😋

At their new Hummingbird Chocolate location (476 Ottawa St. Almonte), you can now reserve a private tour and see how all that chocolate yumminess comes together. During my visit, I had a real 'I Love Lucy' moment when I had the privilege of working on the chocolate covered caramel assembly line....And yes, I ate many caramel treats for 'quality control' measures😉😍🍬🍬

Hurry and get your Easter treats!!🐰🍫🍬

Being one with nature in @discoverdominica 🌴🌴💧🔥
Who loves hot springs? I know I do, as they are incredibly relaxing and therapeutic🔥😍
.
Relaxing in one of Wotten Waven's well-known natural hot sulfur springs, which are believed to have medicinal qualities, was incredible!! The hot sulphuric water is mixed with river water, so it's not only tolerable but that it doesn't burn the skin. Complete relaxation!!
.
When traveling to new destinations, I try to immerse myself in cultural experiences, and this hot sulfur dip in Dominica was a must😍🤩

Live latin music and delicious dishes made for a fun evening out. Everything from their corn bisque, shrimp stuffed avocado, to their uber flavourful truffle butter steak and chocolate lava cake was delicious😋 And ofcourse, their mojitos were off the chart!! 😋 😋

Looking forward to more evenings and getaways to relax and let loose!💃🕺🎶
