Food Post : Amazing breakfast at Cucina Guzzo 

Had an amazing breakfast with my mom at Cucina Guzzo restaurant which just newly opened in the Vaughan area, north of Toronto. The restaurant is in a quaint little plaza corner and is beautifully decorated, with both rustic and modern elements. 


My mother and I both ordered poached eggs with avocado and tomato, which was very delicious and the avocado and tomato were both extremely fresh. 

We also decided to split an order of classic pancakes, which was an amazing decision as the pancakes were some of the fluffiest, most delicious pancakes I’ve ever had! They weren’t thick, but they were perfectly soft and mouthwateringly good. I’ve been thinking about those pancakes ever since.

The best part is- breakfast is served all day- meaning I can enjoy those heavenly pancakes at any hour. 😍 I’m already planning my next trip there!

Food post: One of my favourite Ice cream spots! 


This past weekend to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday my boyfriend and I embarked on a road trip up north to stay at my family’s cottage. Along the way we decided to stop at one of my favourite childhood ice cream spots – “Brainfreezz” which is located in this adorable old tiny town called Thornton . It’s a small little ice cream shop that runs out of an old house and it has been there for quite a while as I’ve been stopping there on summer day trips home from the cottage since I was about 8. They have some of the best ice cream flavours ever and the tastiest waffle cones! They also have amazing yogurt ice cream -which is what I ordered- and they allow you to choose either chocolate or vanilla frozen yogurt and mix it with two kinds of frozen fruit. I opted for vanilla frozen yogurt mixed with raspberries and blueberries in a waffle cone and it was incredible! My boyfriend ordered an ice cream flavour called raspberry cheesecake and he enjoyed it a lot as well. 



I definitely reccomend this little place to anyone who lives in the Ontario area or who will be talking a road trip up north this summer! It’s a great little historic town to check out. 

Song of the week 03: Isaac Gracie- All in my Mind 

I’ve just discovered this song and I can’t stop playing it so I thought I would share it! I really love this song and I find both the lyrics and the melody entrancing. I had never heard anything by this artist before but after hearing this beautiful song and his incredible voice I am an instant fan of his. I’m a huge fan of Indie/Alternative rock and I’m always on the look out for new artists to listen to and I’m so happy with this discovery! I will definitely be adding more of his music to my ever growing ITunes library. 

Some of my favourite lyrics from the song include: 

“Talking ain’t as easy when you’re down

I know you know I’m tryin’ to find the words to say

You told me you would always be around

But now you’re gone, I know that we are not okay

I’m so afraid of growing old 

So don’t you go and leave me on my own” 

And 

“Looking for my answers from above

The only home I knew was for me and you”

I’ve inserted a link to the song on YouTube so that you can take a listen or you are interested! 💕

All In My Mind- Isaac Gracie

Song of the week 002: “Cringe”- Matt Maeson (2017)

Song of the week 002: “Cringe”- Matt Maeson (2017)

This weeks song is Cringe by Matt Maeson. I chose this song as a reflection of my week, as I’ve been feeling really down for the past couple days; emotionally, physically, and mentally. I heard this song for the first time a couple weeks ago and I’ve fallen in love with it and hearing it makes me feel a little better. Favourite lyrics:

“Lover come over,

Look what I done.

I’ve been alone so long,

I feel like I’m on the run.

Lover come over,

Kick up the dust.

I got a secret,

Starting to rust.”

I love the use of the line “starting to rust” as in the author of the lyrics feels as though he’s been alone for so long that he’s beginning to form rust, like an old piece of iron left to outside to endure the elements.

I think this is song is both well written and upbeat, and It is currently my favourite new discovery.

Food Post 003: Amazing Korean Food 🥘 

This food appreciation post is for one of my favourite Korean restaurants in Toronto: Song Cook’s in the Thornhill area.

I always get the vegetable BiBimBap and it is absolutely amazing. The vegetables are so fresh and the food is very authentic. The seafood pancake is a must order starter dish and is very large making it perfect for sharing. I’m vegetarian so I can’t speak for the meat dishes but my dad and brother swear by the kalbi beef ribs with the brown rice.


Pictured above is a miso soup, which comes with the BiBimBap, brown rice, and a spicy tofu soup that my dad ordered.


Close up of the vegetable BiBimBap, complete with rice, veggies( bean sprouts, sliced mushrooms, cucumber, lettuce, seaweed, and carrots), and an egg.


A picture of the Kimchi as well as bean sprouts and yellow beets to start.

I highly recommend Song Cook’s, it is the perfect Korean restaurant, the food is amazing, and the staff is very accommodating and even on the restaurants busiest days we’ve always been seated very quickly.
