The Steps by the War Memorial

On very rare occasions, the stars line up and place a bunch of your favourite spots in the same immediate area. Such is the case with “the steps by the War Memorial” in downtown St. John’s. Now, don’t get us wrong, downtown is FULL of lovely places. If we both made a list of “Five Favourite Places I’ve Ever Been”, downtown St. John’s would make … Continue reading The Steps by the War Memorial

How Powder Room D Wigs are Saving my Hair

As a hairdresser, you would think I’d listen to my own advice: don’t bleach it too much, use treatments between each lightening process, use thermal protectant, don’t use super hot water, etc… Unfortunately, I’m stubborn and didn’t listen. As a result, my hair is fried to shit. (Okay, it’s not THAT bad…but it’s bad.) Let’s go back to last year this time when I had beautiful, healthy … Continue reading How Powder Room D Wigs are Saving my Hair

Surprising, since … Continue reading Petty Harbour and Local Celebrity Sightings

Fogo, Twillingate, Moreton’s Harbour. All Around the Circle.

This was a first for us. We basically based our travel plans upon the lyrics of a traditional Newfie tune. Not sure what we’re talking about? Go Google the lyrics to “I’se Da B’ye” and then come on back.

About Time we Became Tourists at Home

In the last four years, we’ve done a nice bit of travelling: Six weeks in NYC, 3 trips to Europe, five weeks in Australia/New Zealand, and a few visits to Canada’s West Coast.  Every single time we go on a trip, we’ll tell our new friends that they “NEED to visit Newfoundland & Labrador”.  And then they’ll ask us where the nicest places in the … Continue reading About Time we Became Tourists at Home
