Cooking with Chef Paula Zavala

A fabulous Saturday afternoon in my kitchen with local Markham via Mexico Chef Paula Zavala. I was lucky to be able to attend her virtual Thai Food Cooking Class today. On the menu – Thai Coconut Milk Soup with Chicken or Shrimp, Chicken or Pork Skewers with Peanut Sauce and Thai Caramelized Plantains or Bananas.

Chef Paula hosts a few weekly classes virtually from her kitchen. Definitely recommend doing your mise en place prep before the class. In addition to her weekly classes, you can also book a private class too. What a fun and safe idea to enjoy with family, friends and/or your team for a little holiday cheer from the comforts of home. Gracias Chef Paula for a great few hours of connecting with others, learning and my delicious Saturday evening dinner. ♥️

A Well-Fitted Bra

A well-fitting bra is a worthwhile investment and getting fitted is the key to the perfect fitting bra. All too often women are wearing the wrong sized bra and ones size changes too. For more than two decades, Legs Plus & Bra Boutique run by BFF’s Rhonda and Randi has been my go-to bra boutique. All the ladies that work at the shop are super helpful and they have an extensive selection including hard to find sizes. I love that they have brands one won’t find in a department store. A few of my everyday favourites are Chantelle, Fitfully Yours, Wacoal, PrimaDonna and Fantasie Lingerie for strapless ones and Anita for Sports Bras.

Whether you buy an everyday bra or one for a special occasion, make sure to take care of your investment by following these practical tips.

If you haven’t been for a fitting before, I highly recommend going for one next time you need a new bra. Always wear a t-shirt when you go for a fitting that you can pop over everything you try on to see what truly suits you and your body. Also make sure to factor lots of time to try on many styles and brands on. If you are in the Toronto area, definitely drop into see the ladies at the Bra Boutique. They will help you find your perfect fit.

A well fitted bra can not only change the way your outfits look but your confidence too.
