Time to Kill….on Grand Cayman Island

If someone ever invites you to come along while they're on business in the Cayman Islands, even if it's only for three days and requires you to fly diagonally from one end of the continent to the other; you have to move your schedule around, cancel plans, board your dog and you don't have time for a pedicure - do it. — Read More —

No Grey Area In This Valentine’s Day Advice

If you're looking for something to do this Valentine's Day you can always line up to see the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, which hits Canadian theatres on February 14th.

Take Back Your Vacation

A vacation might be the most highly anticipated event of the year. It is a reward for hard work and a much needed respite from the stress, weather and general demands of every day life. Personally, I get so excited during the planning stage - anticipating all that I will do or not do, what I'll wear, eat, read and the fabulous people I'll meet -  that by the time I arrive at the airport, train station or rendezvous my expectations are sky high.
