The Doors

I have a thing for doors. Not only they are very useful for when you want to go in and out of places (or hide stuff away) but I also love their look and unending variety.

Time to Kill…In Banff

The view from my hotel room in Banff says it all, doesn’t it? It is so mind-bogglingly beautiful it’s surreal. It is like the supermodel of landscapes; hard to believe and impossible to look away from. It looks more like a Disney set than real life. Except it is.

How to Meet a Man in 7 Not-So-Easy Steps

I hear it again and again from my 40-something single girlfriends. At this age, a good man can be extremely hard to find.

“Online dating is such a crap shoot and time-consuming. I’d prefer a more organic approach but where do you go? Add to that that I do find that men my age want younger women. It’s tough,” says Lisa*, a 45-year-old mother of two.
