catwoman

No Comments 21 May 2012

lucky penny has never been much of a comic book aficionado, but… michi activewear garments make her feel like a superhero when she hits the gym.

they are the perfect combination of glamour and comfort, yet sexy and athletic enough to make her feel like kicking some major a**. take that, wonder woman. ka-pow! bam!

designed in canada, michi is made of cutting edge fabrics such cotton jersey, nylon lycra and mesh. each piece hugs her body in just the right places creating length, and smoothing out curves. zlonk! eee-yow!

the boys in class cannot stop staring… their frontal lobes have short-circuited. holy hotness, batman. meow!

sans worm

No Comments 21 March 2012

lucky penny could get used to this beeeeeeeautiful spring weather. in fact, she is itching for cocktails on the patio. tequila, anyone?

our girl has long been turned off by the stuff until cute boyfriend suggested tequila tromba, an ultra-premium, boutique tequila.

throat burning shooters be gone! made in small batches, tromba is sweet, smooth and can easily be sipped. the best part is that… it is the only canadian-founded tequila out there competing against 13 multi-million dollar competitors, yet listed at a 40% discount to patrón.

lucky penny loves a good ol’ underdog, and this one spells w-i-n-n-i-n-g.

l’ouvrier

No Comments 19 March 2012

lucky penny gets teased a lot about the contents (er, lack there of) in her fridge… chocolate, früli, and maybe some leftovers—on a good week. but can you really blame her when there are so many *new* restos opening in her fair city?

a few weeks ago, bestie’s boyfriend was in from out of town, so resos were booked at l’ouvrier kitchen bar… the pink table, of course. having nursed a hangover (prolly plural) over their delish brunch menu, it was time to see how dinner matched up.

cocktails: manhattans for the girls, and a duggans brew for cute boyfriend.

starters: steak tartare and a macintosh apple, baby rocket salad to share. so far, so good.

mains: butternut squash ravioli, leg of rabbit and wellington county beef burger with fries.

portions were the perfect size, but the standout item was the fries. glorious, glorious frites. bestie boyfriend pro tip: mix the kozlik’s, mayo and ketchup for legit awesomesauce.

lovely night with good food… and even better company. ’til next time!

soba tuesday

No Comments 13 March 2012

lucky penny is in the business of sharing secrets, but… only with her nearest and dearest. ready for one more? soba canada.

one to always admire passion, craftsmanship and love (she did work at hermès in the not too distant past), owner/farmer/chef, ted, runs soba tuesday once a week out of ichikiri japanese restaurant.

his soba noodles are the first and only authentic japanese buckwheat noodle in the city, but… with a canadian twist. he cultivates the buckwheat himself in manitoba. (did you know it is canada’s buckwheat capital?) once harvested, he mills the buckwheat and produces his own fresh soba.
