If I had to choose only one social media platform, it would have to be Instagram. I spend so (read too much) time scrolling through beautiful accounts. If you missed my video on Five Canadian Instagrammers you should follow, here it is. These gals give me major FOMO! Who doesn’t want to be in a monochromatic hip café in Toronto taking flatlays (I’m looking at you Joelle (La Petite Noob)? Alternatively, I also love wearing sweet feminine styles that only Marie Ernst can pull off. Maybe you want to play mermaid for the day and follow along with local makeup artist Jessika Petten and her brightly colored and striking transformations! While these ladies’ feeds are serious goals, there is no…

Dear Robin Short

I have to give you credit for having a set of balls because it’s a very sticky situation to crap on Newfoundland and Labrador. We come out with pitchforks and torches a blazing. I don’t have a tendency to generalize any group of people, but I gotta say we are the most defensive province in the country. Reasonably so, because since confederation there has been an arrogance that steamed over us from the mainland. A sense of superiority from the upper echelons who reminded us of our lack of money and were backed by a federal government who has a tendency to forget we even exist and a country that believes we lack intelligence and education. It’s been a tough…

I’ve attempted some weird moves on George Street over the years from breaking out the robot to leading the entire dancefloor into an impromptu “Macarena” dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” but one move I have never attempted (to my recollection) on the street or in one of its twenty-four bars is a downward dog. That all changed this past Saturday when I took my mat and joined some fellow yogis for Yoga on George. The event, which coincided with the 33rd annual George Street Festival was a complimentary yoga class hosted by lululemon St. John’s who celebrated the grand opening of their store last year with a community yoga class right in the middle of George. Before the…

Feature: The Bonavista Social Club

Sometimes the REAL Newfoundland and Labrador gets lost in the shuffle of row houses and screech ins. Our hearts lie truly in the depths of rural Newfoundland, down by the water in the coziness of small, yet connected communities. The Bonavista Social Club is a reminder of the centre of our province, small town, great food and a place to feel at home. Located in the community of Upper Amherst Cove on the Bonavista Peninsula, Bonavista Social Club is owned and operated by Katie and Shane Hayes.  At first glance, it seems to be a cozy restaurant with a few NL fixings but it is more of a food production. Though food is served daily, homemade food and products are available for…

True believers assemble! Free Comic Book Day is fast approaching. The annual event taking place on the first Saturday in May promotes the North American comic book industry and attempts to bring new readers to their friendly neighborhood local independent comic book shop. Free Comic Book Day started in 2002 and is coordinated by the comic industry’s single large distributor, Diamond Comic Distributors but the idea came about one year earlier when retailer Joe Field wrote a column for a comics magazine that noted the positive cultural and financial effect that successful feature films based on superheroes were having on the comic book industry. It was eventually decided that the first Free Comic Book Day should be held on the…
