National Ballet of Canada’s Hamlet

Hello Darlings,  Dodging heavy rain last Friday evening, I set out to watch the North American premiere of National Ballet of Canada’s Hamlet, which runs through June 10th. Ballet has always been a part of my life. When my family moved to Canada from Ukraine, they enrolled me in a ballet academy where I danced for eight years. I may have retired my pointe shoes years ago, but my love for ballet continues.

Picasso and His Women

Hello Darlings, Having my university degree in art history and architecture, gallery visits are a big part of my personal life. Art Gallery of Ontario is one of my favorites to visit for  inspiration, and this summer the gallery has a wonderful exhibit, Picasso: Masterpieces from Musée National Picasso running until August 26.

Apple Pie Trail: Sweet Adventure

Hello Darlings, Always a nature lover — I grew up spending summers at my grandparent’s farm in Ukraine — and loving the thrill of adventure, the weekend at Blue Mountain satisfied my inner Marta-the-explorer. Savoring down time at Scandinave Spa and pool time at The Westin Trillium was a treat, but exploring the beauty of Ontario’s Apple Country was an experience that I will never forget! To say that it made a lasting impression is an understatement.
