Born in Sri Lanka raised in Dubai, Bahrain, Pakistan, U.S, Australia and England, I now find myself settled in downtown Toronto. Passions include entertaining, fashion, wine, dining, cooking, cocktailing, travelling, hunting for random fun events in the city and … exploring all things baby related. A branding specialist by profession, I found myself at home on maternity leave with a newborn and time on my hands, hence the blog was born in 2011 to talk about my passions. I tried to escape the corporate world but it keeps drawing me back because I work for a very fun company in the beverage alcohol industry where I am currently the Trade Marketing Manager. In addition to my full time day job and this here blog, my husband and I also offer social media, event and brand marketing consulting services. Needless to say, we’re ALWAYS on the go. Yes we have a nanny who helps us twice a week and we’re very thankful for that and our solid network for close family and friends.
I made it my mission to strike a balance between baby and self from the very start and luckily my husband, Chris, was onboard! Chris is a sports fan, movie lover and craft beer aficionado who moved to Toronto from the East Coast of Canada in 2005. He and I met during our MBA program and the rest has been a magical carpet ride. After four years Chris decided to join in on the story sharing and you’ll now find both our (very different) voices and opinions on the blog.
Our goal is to encourage young families to maintain the pre baby life, post baby. Having dined out and traveled to over 52 cities in 12 countries since the first little one was born in 2011, we encourage you to travel and enjoy the culinary offerings in your own city! We continue to explore the urban lifestyle with two kids under age six. If you’d like to work together please click here for more details!
We will be doing our best to post each weekday, but life may get in the way. If we’re travelling expect to see more picture updates on where we are and what we’re up to. We promise to share the details on our return! Whilst at home in Toronto you can expect to see the following : Manic Mondays where we’ll be covering local events and happenings, Tasty Tuesdays which is where you will find good dining out spots with a baby tagging along, Wacky Wednesday is all about the little ones from tips and tricks to product reviews and a healthy dose of parenting rants, Traveling Thursday will feature travel related posts including hotel reviews and city reviews and finally Fashion Friday is dedicated to a picture outfit!
Here’s the family! The Hubs and I met in 2006 and got married in true whirlwind fairytale style in 2009. Little Monkey was born in October 2011 and Baby Boy joined us in 2013 -yes they are 2 years apart to the week.
Come join us on our city living and exploring journey!
