To say that Lucy Hill has already emerged as a successful and multi-dimensional talent, is an understatement. With acting credits piling up and projects she’s behind building acclaim, Lucy Hill is poised for success, whatever the medium.
I have to be upfront about something: I don’t watch nearly as much TV as I do film. I still haven’t seen Hannibal or The Americans or Orphan Black and I haven’t caught the latest seasons of favourites like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Adventure Time. That being said, I still watch a lot more TV than I used to. I used to think TV was film’s sad cousin, with weaker casts, sloppier storytelling and more commercial influence. And then I watched Lost and it led me to take TV seriously and watch a whole host of other great shows.

Goldie’s General is a pop-up general store located on the top floor of the old Golden Dragon building above The Hollows restaurant. Goldie’s will be open this upcoming weekend (Sunday Dec. 15th) in preparation for the holiday season. Here is a list of my favorite gift items that can be found at Goldie’s. They are perfect for that hard to buy for person, and also make sincere, useful and sustainable gifts.
Now that December 1st has come and gone and I’m back from the beachy coastline of Australia to the snowy (insert curse word here) of Saskatchewan, it’s time to get festive.
As much as I complain about the snow and cold, I have to admit that nothing pairs better with it than a mug of hot chocolate and Bailey’s, an oversized knit, slippers, and a plate of baked goodies fresh from the oven.
Since everyone was so into last week’s pick-a-number contest, I’m reissuing the same contest this WINsday: I’ve written a number between 1 and 200 and the guesser who’s closest gets a pair of Saxx and a pair of MyPakage underwear c/o Spareparts. Come Friday afternoon if there’s a tie, I’ll make a draw from the tied guesses. But first, as promised, dicks in boxes.
I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of the rum and eggnog, but I do enjoy a couple each year as I trim the Christmas tree, before switching to something less sweet. However, I’ve also been drinking the poor man’s version, which is just rum poured into the store bought eggnog. This is not real eggnog, in fact, it’s kind of just a weird chemical sugar milk that only needs to contain 1% of egg yolk to be called eggnog (according to American FDA standards). Purists would say that most people these days haven’t actually tried the real thing. Now, I’m as lazy as the next guy, and I’ve found the more rum you pour into it, the less it matters anyway. But I’m going to show you how to make a real mixologist’s rum and eggnog, or this would be a pretty short write up.
Great people across the ages often share the same innate qualities- vision, guts, single mindedness… the list is endless.. likewise, look through the wardrobes of 10 random fashionable men regardless of age, status, and body shape and I bet you will find they all own at least eight to ten similar items. These “essentials” complement each other when worn together and if absent, makes your wardrobe look somewhat deficient. I have put together a list of items that should underpin the foundation of every man’s wardrobe.
Sunglasses say a lot about your personality so when you’re buying a pair as a gift, you’ve got to climb into the headspace of your gift recipient to see what style would suit them best. As your luck would have it, I’ve done a bit of reconnaissance for you on the subject, lining up a few personalities that might grace your Christmas shopping list beside some shades available at Spareparts. From your brother ‘the party guy’ to your bestie ‘the sporty girl’, their wish is on my list. Continue reading
