Ninety-nine years ago last month, a statue in Brantford Memorial Park was unveiled to the public. The sculpture was commissioned to commemorate the invention of the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell. The breathtaking Bell Telephone Memorial was the winning submission of Walter Seymour Allward, one of Canada’s most revered sculptors.

As I sit on a park bench watching the leaves fall in front of me, magazine in hand, scarf around my shoulders, I reflect on how truly beautiful autumn is here in Canada. As Canadians, we embrace all that summer has to offer with a sense of entitlement and reward for the harsh winters we endure. Yet, this country has so much to offer in the seasons that follow. From coast to coast, we are surrounded by the natural beauty that seems to radiate from the treetops.

November is often seen as an interim month; Halloween is done and Christmas is still too far away. However, like many parents, I enjoy this calm before the storm. I...

Keeping on top of my schedule means that I need a reliable smartphone that can manage my time as well as keep me in touch with the world. So, I was very happy to be asked to trial the new Moto Z smartphone by Motorola. I received all of the gear this week and I'm intrigued by everything that was sent! Moto told me that the Moto Z is the thinnest premium smartphone, and works with a number of Moto Mods, that I know the kids are going to be desperate to try. A Moto Mod allows you to transform your smartphone into exactly what you need, exactly when you need it. With a projector, speaker, camera, battery pack and more, I’m excited...

It's official, fall is here! The rainy, windy days are upon us and although it is a welcome break from the humid days we had this summer, I'm somewhat sad. It's this kind of weather that makes me want to drop everything and get away. Normally I want to run away to the hotter climates and grasp a little more sun while I can, but for some reason I seem to be drawn to Europe. Perhaps it is the recent visit of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge that has me yearning for a trip across the pond, in particular, London, England. I can hear you all, the weather there is exactly as it is here…but colder! However, this desire to...

Sometimes life just feels crazy. 

With so much that needs to get done, I find it easiest to default into an autopilot mode of operation. Jumping from one task to the next keeps me focused and feeling efficient. While spending my time effectively is a necessity at this time of my life, there have been many occasions where I have found myself wanting to slow down. I fear that I will look back at this period of my life and wish that I hadn’t bustled my way through.

I often get asked about my favourite things, my favourite stores to shop in, my favourite products, my favourite book or movie and also where I like to dine. Sarah Delivered was born from these sort of questions, as it gives me the opportunity to send my followers and subscribers products that I use and would recommend. However, sending a restaurant in a box is quite difficult, although maybe I'll start working on it ;-). Therefore, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the places that I have found throughout my travels.

As Toronto is full film swing, I thought it would be nice to have a family film night this weekend. So I reached out to Cassie, our trusted baker, for a special treat for the kids to eat during the film. I don't like to give them too many sweet snacks, but when we watch a movie together, I always try to have one 'bad' thing that they can chomp on. This time around, Cassie from Right From Scratch sent me a recipe for Funfetti Cake Bars and so I gave them a trial run the other day and am going to make them again this weekend. The kids loved them and they are very excited to have them again, alongside their choice of film.

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, September marks a new beginning for me. I’ve decided to seize the opportunity of a fresh start and make a few changes as I transition into a new school year routine. I’m doing my best to find ways to fit exercise into my life by following creative workouts that I can do in the comfort of my own home. As hard as it may be to squeeze a workout in, I do love taking an hour for myself to simply zone out and escape from the stress of everyday life. If you are like me and need a little extra push, there are some wonderful...

This summer I promised myself that I would take some time to read a few new summer books that I could share with each of you! Although, I have to admit, I didn’t have as much time to enjoy all the juicy summer novels that I usually do, I did find some time to read a handful of summer ‘must read’ novels. I wanted to share my thoughts on one of the big reads of this summer, The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney.

Today marks the opening of The Ex, or the Canadian National Exhibition for 2016. This annual event has been of interest to me and my family for many reasons, for the excitement of the rides and entertainment, and also as it marks the end of summer. But let's not focus on that last part, we still have a couple of weeks!
