Our Love Story

People always ask me how I met Sean, my boyfriend. If they're seeking a way that they too can meet a great guy, then our story probably won't be too helpful. If they are looking for a story that will make them believe in love at first sight, then ours is the perfect fit.

Sean and I met last April outside of the club Citizen, over on King and Brant. I was saying goodbye to a few friends of mine, when I noticed two of my girlfriends were talking to a really hot guy. I walked over, but instead of marching up and introducing myself I kind of just hid behind my friends. The hot guy (who was Sean, in case you didn't already guess) noticed me, and picked me out from behind my friends. "You're Lebanese," he stated. The fact that he recognized my nationality was extremely impressive, never mind that he revealed his Lebanese roots as well. At that point I hadn't come across many Lebanese people my age in Toronto, let alone a cute Lebanese guy. Suffice to say, I was excited about him from the first second.

10 Places to Find Lavender Goodies in Toronto

Every season has a few signature foods that we all look forward to each year. With pumpkin spice lattes and gingerbread taking over autumn and winter, what does that mean for flavoured goodies once spring comes around? There are a few scents and flavours one could associate with spring, but one that should be near the top of everyone's list is lavender. It can be found in drinks and desserts, as well as home supplies, such as soaps and candles. Not only is it a calming and refreshing plant, it also has regal roots. Rumour has it that Cleopatra used lavender as a fragrance to attract Julius Caesar, while Marie Antoinette decorated her palace with lavender for its scent. Queen Elizabeth I demanded fresh lavender every day, and used it for tea and perfume. After hunting around the city for lavender flavoured treats, I came across a wide array of products from local hot spots. Whether you're working in the Path, or hanging out in Kensington Market, you too can live like a royal while exploring downtown Toronto this spring.
