VIVA LAS VEGAS

Well, I’m back. I must apologize to all 2 of my followers for the long delay between posts, but I was prepping for and going on a trip to Las Vegas with a few friends for the past long weekend….

WINE TASTER’S CHOICE

This past Sunday, myself, Boyfriend Nik and some friends attended the Winnipeg Wine Festival. This is the second year in a row Nik and I have gone and I must say, we’re fans. It’s packed inside the Convention Centre, but…
