April showers are almost behind us, and it’s time for May flowers so it’s fitting that the May Day Festival is kicking off in Port Coquitlam, with parties and parades for everyone.

eat well, shop smart

We can’t believe that local food blogger Emily Wight wasn’t on our online radar ’til the recent release of her first cookbook Well Fed, Flat Broke. We can’t believe it because not only does she live in our ‘hood but we love how she manages working full time, being a mum and blogging on the side, and then there’s her recipes. Everything we’ve made from Well Fed, Flat Broke has been a hit with the whole family. And as parents of picky eaters – like us – know that’s a rare and magical thing. MORE

the circus is in town

When Toby Manson and Anuk Harvey moved to Vancouver from the UK five years ago they were looking for something to do together outside of the traditional work environment. They’d long thought of opening a cafe type business and kept collating ideas and then when their second daughter was born they realized that while Vancouver has a great cafe culture it’s not always accessible to new parents. And thus the Circus Play Cafe was born.

*Note: we just heard from Toby & Anuk that the Circus Play Cafe won’t be open til later this week or early next. We’ll keep you posted!* MORE
