Ten Ways To Describe What Tim Hortons Means To Me

Tim Hortons recently marked its territory in England by offering free timbits and people seem to go so far in expressing their excitement, that they even associate the brand with a "Canadian Starbucks".  Well, in my opinion, the resemblance of their market positioning is practically close to nonexistent. Similarities are superficial: they both sell coffee (or other hot and cold beverages) with something on the side, and they both adapt the design of the plastic cup according to the season or time of year. I simply love the two brands for what they represent in my mind: Starbucks, a cozy ambiance and place to study, Tim Hortons, a sweet guilty pleasure, accompanied by a coffee.

Montreal, My Wallet Is Missing: What Do I Do?

Although there are claims that Montreal is the safest city in the world and although you don't see Bucharest's pickpocket experts running around, there still is a slight possibility that your wallet gets stolen in the city. Or that you simply lose it and no kind soul is there to return it to you. 

At least that's what happened to me recently, that made me decide to share the story and give you some hints on how to handle a situation of this kind. 

In Montreal, Barbies Came To Stay

Barbies are every girl's dream. No matter their age. Even though some of them (like my daughters) are not really fans of the actual dolls, they cannot be immune to the appel of Barbie movies, novels, colouring books or games. In downtown Montreal, a Barbie exposition started last February and attracts fans even after one year. We were there twice and every trip brought us a pleasant feeling.

Paw Patrol - Toddlers' Action Series To Boost Sales

Everywhere I look....Paw Patrol...a simple TV Series' is not enough nowadays. Children need to have their favourite characters everywhere: on their clothes, bed sheets, backpacks, toys, toothbrush and paste, only to name a few. More than that, they need to have a game or app, everything that could bring their heroes to life. Have a problem? Call the pups!

In Montreal, Library Resources Are Easy To Access

The two most important tangible assets of being a resident of Montreal or its suburban area, are for me the Opus and library card, mostly because of the high degree of mobility they provide you with: using the "Bibliotheque de Montreal" card, you have access to all of the libraries in the city, while the Opus card helps you circulate by bus and metro throughout all the STM area.

Disney Princesses Vs Real-Life Audience

Life with daughters has turned me into an expert on Disney princesses. In the past years I voluntarily (or not) watched Disney princess movies over and over again and am starting to take it to the next level: action movies and live shows. After Maleficent and The Huntsman from the years before, this uopcoming year is supposed to bring a lot of action movies based on Disney stories.

Buffet des Continents – “L’apres Ski” As A Family Deal

Buffet des Continents is an awesome concept: all (I mean ALL) you can eat, from four continents. Traditional food from all-over the world in a Mediterranean setting. This restaurant, on our way home from the mountains, is perfect for winter evenings when we (me and my oldest daughter, for now. ) are extremely hungry after skying as much as we can. Although they don't sky, my husband and youngest child, can relate to our hunger and eat with us. Thus, this place really needs a review.

Ubisoft’s Brilliant PR lesson: Rabbids, An Amusement Centre In The West Island

…Because it’s 2016!...When the Pokemons are back, but chased in a virtual reality, instead of being collected as cards. It's the year when, bringing a mega-popular game from France to French Canada and making it as popular as in its homeland, means transforming it into an exciting offline experience! Let players enjoy it by living into its reality.
