What I do is not normal, sometimes it’s down right strange. The constant documenting of our selves as bloggers is a crazy one. I one hundred percent could not do what I do without my Instagram husband!


First off let me introduce you to one of my besties Nneka Elliott. We live in the same building and live similar lives. We hang out a lot and our husbands have grown close too. It’s a win win over all and I am so lucky to have her in my life!

We always knew we wanted to start some sort of thing together. Over a hang out recently we brainstormed a culinary series called #ThegivebackTO where we were going to thank and giveback to the most precious people in our lives. We immediately knew we wanted to celebrate our “Instagram husbands” for Valentine’s day and we put things in motion.

Stay tuned for more #ThegivebackTO events because we have a whole lot of giving back to do!


On February 12th Nneka and I along side a few close media friends and of course our instagram husbands gathered for an amazing brunch at Bar Reyna to celebrate! It was a fabulous feast and I had an awesome time.


Bar Reyna is Yorkville’s reigning snack and cocktail bar. This atmospheric restaurant, located in downtown Toronto at 158 Cumberland Street in a timeless two-storey Victorian house with a year-round back patio, was conceived by restaurant industry veteran Nicki Laborie.


We ate on the cutest winterized patio and all the food was divine!!!! Some brunch highlights were steak and eggs on toast, fresh oysters and qatayef pancakes! I had the steak and eggs on toast and I loved it. Plus they are known for their fries and I have to say they were so awesome – thin and crispy just how I like them! I highly recommend Bar Reyna.


A big thank you to all these beautiful ladies!!! Pictured left to right -Sydney Hoffman HERE Amanda Phuong HERE Nneka Eliott HERE Kimberly Moffit HERE and I.


A big shout out to Bar Reyna of course but we also gifted our lovers with a beautiful jade plant c/o Tonic Blooms and the most perfect Saje Wellness XO Kit.


…and last but not least to my real husband and Instagram husband!!! I love you!! I love you so much!!! Please never leave me. I need you to take my pictures lol
