sipping through vermont
By this point, you know I like to enjoy a local brew or two whenever I’m visiting somewhere new. So many craft beer enthusiasts told me that I NEEDED to try Heady Topper from the Alchemist. I was excited about it! I was happy to have been able to have a delicious Heady Topper on a patio with dinner one night, but the actual brewery itself was closed on Sunday and Monday when we were in the area, what a bummer. It’ll have to be a stop for next time. (For those who don’t know, Heady Topper is a double India Pale Ale brewed in Stowe, it’s a whopping 8% but still goes down smooth with hints of citrus. It was voted the 4th best beer in the world this year by Beer Advocate, that’s a pretty big deal).
My husband is a huge foodie. He watches documentaries on food factories, popular authentic stops and events. When we booked our Vermont trip one of the first things he asked me is if we could stop by the Ben & Jerry’s Factory. I thought it would be a little hokey, I didn’t know what to expect, but of course I said we could check it out.
Magic On the Mountain
One of the absolute highlights of Vermont for me was Dog Mountain in Saint Johnsbury. At first, since it was a bit out of our way and would have added 3 plus hours onto our trip back home, we didn’t think we could pay it a visit, but Katie had the sneaky plan of us following her car (she had the GPS, after all) and surprising me.
The Beauty in Bvlgari
Dave Lackie is at it again, beauty expert and author of Beauty Departure magazine hosted a Bvlgari fragrance launch overlooking the city of Toronto this week. His loyal Twitter followers flooded into a beautifully set up event space on top of the Hudson’s Bay building in the Arcadian Court. The sun was setting over city hall and cast a warm glow over the stunning perfume bottles on display, Goldea The Roman Night- Absolute for her and Man- Wood Essence for him. They were begging to be photographed.
Hey! I'm Sarah! A 30 something living in downtown Toronto with a great guy and an OK dog. I love seeing what my city has to offer and try to hit up as many fun events or attractions as I can! I haven't slept since 2004.
