Happy Canada Day!

Whether or not you’re attending Pride as part of the Canada Day celebrations, we hope you have a happy, fun and safe long weekend.
Some fun facts to wow your friends (or make quick conversation at the bbq/cottage/date you are on this weekend):
Did you know Canadians consume more macaroni and cheese than any other nation on earth? Source.
We’re home to the longest street, highway, coastline and freshwater beach in the world. Source
We have more lakes than the rest of the world combined. Source.

Quebec produces over 70% of the worlds’ maple syrup, and is the only walled city north of Mexico. Coincidence? You decide.

Happy long weekend!

Halloween costume inspiration

It’s never too early to start planning your Halloween costume. With the onset of October last week, we started swapping ideas about what to wear this year (no, we’re not too old for costumes. Are you crazy?). Here are the costumes that we think you’ll see most this October 31 – or that you might see us in. 

Debra’s pick:

Rob Ford

Christina’s pick:


Rachelle‘s pick:

Jersey Shore. Fist pump.

Lisa‘s pick:

Lady Gaga or….
For something a little more tame (for the vegetarians). 
Abby’s pick:
Coach Beiste and Coach Sue Sylvester from Glee. Strong ladies. 
 Michelle‘s pick: 
Serious costume for those with a political/environmental conscience: an oil-drenched bird.
A little more light-hearted: Twitter. I bet you can do a better costume than this, though.

Alana‘s pick:

Going classic: Zombie bride.

Hope this has helped stir your creative juices! Send us the best costume you see on Halloween, and we’ll feature it in a round-up on November 1. Don’t you wanna be on our blog?
