Review of Uli’s Restaurant

Uli's is a delightful restaurant on waterfront in White Rock. Nals & Missy R went there for brunch in early February for our 16th Friend-a-versary Celebration. As it was wintertime, it was cool. But that usually-shy sun was shining brightly. And I could easily see where the pier was nipped off in the storm a … Continue reading Review of Uli’s Restaurant

There were a … Continue reading Sky’s the Limit at SkyCity Hotel in Auckland, NZ!

But there's this local joint in the heart of gastown that's pumping out some amazing fried chicken and other great bbq'd … Continue reading Why did the chicken cross the road?

Maybe she’s born with it? Maybe it’s EyEnvy?

I searched high and low last year and could only find the mascara.  I thought it was peanuts but it actually made lashes a bit fuller.  My review … Continue reading Maybe she’s born with it?
