Vancouver Foodster 1 year Anniversary

29 Jul

Vancouver Foodster celebrated his one year anniversary in style with an amazing party at Canvas Lounge. Tickets were just $5 with 100% of the proceeds going to the Vancouver Foodbank.

There were tons of amazing restaurants serving samples of their amazing food:
Coast, Sanafir, Atithi, Hapa Izakaya, Maple Grill, Nimby Burger, Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co, Wild Rice, Canvas Lounge, Benton Brothers Cheese, Bonchaz, Cake Tease, Vancouver Brownies, Xoxolat, Kafkas Coffee & Tea, Dao Tea, Vista D’oro Farms, Chandra Winery, Nichol Vineyard, Rollingdale Winery, Desert Hills Winery, and Neck of the Woods Wines.

My favorite was for sure Benton Brothers Cheese. They had some REALLY amazing cheese to sample!

Also, Cake Tease blew me away with their delicious cupcakes!

I was in love with the cold brew coffee from Kafkas Coffee and Tea. It was almost creamy! AMAZING Paired with a chocolate truffle Bonchaz bun… it was perfect.

My last favorite was the Rocky Mountain Flatbread. They had some great veggie flatbreads that were SO GOOD! I wanted more than just a little bite! The moment one was cooked, it was being eaten by many hungry people anxiously awaiting their first or second taste! They couldn’t even keep up!

All in all this event was a slam dunk and raised TONS of money raised!

Are you wearing TOMS yet?

19 Jul

I was shopping around Vancouver all weekend, looking at countless shoe stores, and longingly staring at the TOMS shoes. I REALLY want a pair, but have yet to decide on which print to get. That lead me to their website www.toms.com

There I was blown away by this amazing company. Not only do they make adorable, comfortable shoes, they also do something amazing. For every pair of shoes that is purchased, one pair is donated to someone in need.

It’s amazing to think that this is something that even exists. While most corporate companies are busy worrying about their bottom line, TOMS is worrying about making our world a little bit nicer, one shoe at a time. At this point, they have given away more than 600,000 pairs of shoes! AMAZING!

Watch this amazing, inspirational video, and be sure to visit their website to learn more, and purchase a pair of these shoes. You will look super hip and cool, and also be helping out someone who really needs it.

Needless to say, next weekend I will be most definitely picking up a pair!
