So the other day my friend and I were working on this project when we decided that it would be fun to try and make our project look old and worn by slightly burning it. Neither of us were brave enough to actually do this on our own, so of course we went ahead and attempted it on our own [...]

This building fools you: A Wish‘s creativity stands out amongst the shops on 8th Street SW, however. When you walk in, the impression you get makes this place almost a bit too sparkling new for this block and the apartment building it is in. The food and drinks they offer are a mix of both Western and Asian fare, so they have to manage [...]
Perhaps you’ve read my article from a while back complaining speaking about a few issues I have with ordering drinks at Starbucks. Well, although a year later I can’t say I’ve become too much more coffee savvy, I can appreciate the variety of drink combinations that the global favourite does offer. I thought I’d share a few secrets I’ve picked up through the interwebs of some interesting [...]
Christmastime, the perfect time of year for baking gingerbread men, decorating your Christmas tree, and spending cherished time with family and friends. After a fulfilling afternoon of skating, tobogganing, or simply going for a wintry stroll, the best thing to do is have a nice hot drink, and a festive one at that. This season, no longer will you be [...]
One cold winter morning, Juliet and MJ set out into the ice and slush of 17th avenue to bring you this food review! If you're looking for good places to grab a bite, check out our reviews!
I promise I am not a spokesperson from Starbucks. Here is the result of another photo shoot at the coffee shop. 7
A rare, fragile yet charming form of art – latte art is usually created either during the process of pouring microfoam (perfectly steamed milk) onto the crema (brown foam formed at the top of freshly brewed espresso), creating a heart or rosette (free pouring); or by drawing a pattern in the foams with a coffee stirrer (etching). As with most [...]
I felt so inspired by the poem “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T. S. Elliot (a 20th century poet), I wrote a “poetic response” to it: When the evening is spread out against the sky, When feelings and emotions are flying high. Why so intricate and obscure? When I disturb the universe so vast, When I feel the seconds [...]
When it comes to me ordering a drink from Starbucks, the menu might as well be written in Greek. Honestly, when people order, I always think to myself – “you want a tall, non-fat, no foam, whipped cream topped, caramel drizzled what?” – and the barista doesn’t even bat an eyelash. The other day, I walked in to place my [...]
Unfortunately, my chances of winning are still poor, and I have only won Roll Up the Rim 7 out of 87 times. Yes, 87. However, the updated winners on the Tim Horton’s site still show that there are 45 3D TVs, 14 cars, a little less than 4,000 bikes, 635 grills, and roughly 18,000 Tim Horton’s gift cards to be [...]
I don’t know about anyone else, but I’ve been going to Tim Horton’s nearly every day just to get a cup of coffee so I can roll up the rim. Unfortunately, out of the twenty-two cups I have rolled, none of them have won, which makes me believe that there must be something wrong with the statistics of one in [...]
Do you know that Starbucks is the largest purchaser of Fair Trade Coffee? Also, every time you buy a coffee at Starbucks, your money goes not only towards your coffee, but also for the children who need school and other good stuff. So don’t blame your friends too much about drinking Starbucks. They are donating their money to education =) [...]
