As someone who works full time from home, I make my own coffee each morning and as I previously wrote about, I make my own smoothies for lunch. I save tons of money compared to my days working in an office and buying my breakfast and lunch each day, but sometimes I miss the luxury of a latte or espresso based morning beverage. Sure, I can get into my car to go get one, and sometimes I do for the opportunity to step away from my desk for a little break, but most of time, I settle for homemade drip coffee. Until now! My friends at Nespresso graciously sent me a brand new Nespresso VertuoLine Evoluo coffee maker as a housewarming gift! Needless to say, it looks great in my new kitchen and my hubby-to-be and I have been loving it!


I used to think Nespresso machines could only make espresso shots and that didn’t appeal to me because I prefer a tall coffee or latte. The new Nespresso VertuoLine Evoluo machine makes both! I purchased some regular coffee capsules as well as some espresso capsules to give me the ultimate variety right in the comfort of my own home.

My fiancé and I recently moved from a two bedroom townhouse to a four bedroom detached home in Toronto. While we were thrilled with the idea of upgrading to a bigger home, we weren’t so excited about the process of moving. Enter Jiffy


Of course there’s an app for that! Jiffy offers easy home services on demand. When we determined our moving date, we simply launched the Jiffy app, searched on “moving” and entered our moving date. Within one click, Jiffy searched their inventory of reputable Toronto-based moving companies until they found one that could provide service on the date requested. Within 5 minutes, I had a confirmation email in my inbox with the name of the moving company and an approximate price quote. Easy peasy!

When I used to work downtown, the “PATH” or shopping concourse was both a convenience and a curse. I would start my day in the food court with a breakfast sandwich and a tea or coffee, and I would have some sort of fast food for lunch. Sure, there were healthier options, but there were only so many $12 salads that I could afford! I probably spent $2500 a year on coffees and lunches and I worked downtown for 10 years – CRAZY! For the past three years, ever since I started working from home, I make myself a smoothie every weekday for lunch. Not only has this been an economical choice for me, but a super healthy one too!

IMG_0887My signature smoothies always include a variety of fresh or frozen fruits, spinach and yogurt, among other things that I find at my local health food store. When I heard about the new iögo large yogurt pouches, I was thrilled because they’re perfect for someone who goes through as much yogurt as I do!
