Dating Tip - If He Doesn't Pay Send Him Away

This is not just a dating tip, this is my rule and I'm firm on this one... 

If you go on the first date and he doesn't pay, send him away...or you'll be paying for ever. 

I don’t care who asked who to go out, if he's a real man, then he will pull out his wallet and pay. Some of you may disagree with me but here's why I have this rule.

You should be valued. He is lucky to be on a date with you. If he can't even pay to take you out for a meal, does he deserve the time you're spending with him? I think not. 

Come on, if he likes you, he should put in the effort,no? I understand that sometimes folks are short on funds every now and then but if he's broke then what's wrong with planning a picnic or going out for a coffee. There are many cheap and cheerful but also romantic things he can plan. It's about his willingness to try.

Although a dinner date at his house would be very economical, don't go, its not a safe move for a first date. Actually, I advise against it on the second or third date too. Take your time to get to know him before going to his home.

Just in case, remember to always be prepared to pay for your part of the bill and have a safe plan for getting yourself home.

Parkas for 2015 Winter in Toronto

2015's fall/winter in Toronto has been pretty mild but the cold, snowy days of winter have started. If you don't have a good winter coat yet, I suggest you get out there and find one ASAP. Finding the right coat at a good price is not easy but I think I can help.

Check post, updated in 2018, on where I've find warm winter coats or parkas in Toronto.

Here are some places where I think you may get lucky...

From Curly to Straight in Less Than 1 Hour

My hair has grown a lot since I stopped relaxing. The transition took a long time, about two years, so I'm not about to damage it again. Wearing my hair natural has helped my hair to gain strength and thickness. But sometimes I just want to wear it straight and that means being careful not to damage it.

You've been sending me question about blowouts and how I go from curly to straight without doing severe damage. When it comes to hair growth, I have two key pieces of advice for you. Make sure to give your natural hair moisture and go the extra mile to protect it from heat. That's how I achieved the results in the before and after growth pic below.

These results are all me. I haven't been to a hairstylist in a very long time. Not because I can't find a good one, there are many talented stylists in Toronto. I just prefer to do my hair myself myself. Actually, anyone that knows me will tell you that I LOVE♥ doing my own hair. It comes out exactly how I want it to.


Von Doughnuts on Danforth

The doughnut in this pic is not just any doughnut, it's a Caramel Salt N' Pepa doughnut from Von Doughnuts. It is absolutely delish! I discovered Von one evening strolling along the Danforth with my family after dinner. As soon as we saw the big orange sign and my daughter's favorite word "Doughnuts", we had to check it out.

I'm hooked now but not just because of the doughnuts. I absolutely love the vibe of this place. It's just chill. The people who work there make it even better. My favorite is Nora, we bonded over doughnuts. Well, actually, she's the only Von employee I have met.  As you can see in the pick below, by the time we left, Nora was blowing good-bye kisses. We love her and we'll be back.

We dropped in a little too close to closing time so we only had the Caramel Salt N' Pepa and a few lightly sugared doughnut holes to choose from. But Miss Nora made sure we knew what doughnuts to come back for by reading off the list of flavors …
