Yesterday I was an audience member at The Martha Stewart Show for their special blog-themed episode. The studio was packed with bloggers tapping away at their keyboards and I was busy tweeting on my ‘berry. There were a few special guests like Alexia and Jennifer from Whatever Martha and the show was filled with the usual: cooking, baking and crafting. But there was one thing Martha was wearing which I couldn’t take my eyes off of. Those shoes. Those 6″ stiletto shoes! Lucky for us, Martha showed off her flexibility skills, whipped her leg onto the counter and dished out the brand she found on sale. Being in the front row, I was lucky enough to get the entire thing on tape!

Oh, and believe me it’s good. Martha like you’ve never seen before! Click here to watch the video

Don’t let the virtuous name fool you, this is one place that will leave you cursing the day you ordered a medium-spiced roti causing you to weep with each bite.

Eating at Ghandi can either be a pleasurable or painful event. Read on to find out how to make the distinction.

Last year I figured out the secret to enjoying the winter — have fun. This year I’ll be adding tobogganing, snowshoeing and other child-like activities into the mix, but I’ve already found my favourite thing to do on a Friday, head to Dufferin Grove Skating Rink for their Friday Night Suppers.

Read on for the best kept secret in town – a perfect night out for $10, including skating, supper and dessert!
