Edo For A Week #ad #yeg #yegfood

496E5A48-8A2B-451C-9E4C-421DE0C142C1If you’ve caught my Instagram stories this week you would have probably guessed I’ve partnered with Edo Japan. By no means am I new to the franchise, I’ve been loving them for over a decade. I’m so excited to share this exciting partnership opportunity with my family while ‘Edo for a week.’ We got to ’Edo Your Heart Out’ while eating some menu favourites and trying some new finds from the ever evolving Edo Menu.  We made three visits in one week and this is what we found:

Chop Chop Bowls. Perfectly grilled chicken, beef, or crispy tempura shrimp on top of rice, raw veggies, and Savoury Bulgogi sauce. We tried both the shrimp and beef this past week. This has been a go-to of mine since last summer. I love the fresh ingredients and size. I usually share mine with my toddler. He loves it as much as I do!

Iced Coconut Coffee: This one is unreal! It’s like a vacation in a cup. During this heatwave it was the perfect midmorning break for this mama.

Tempura Sweet Potatoe. A twist on the ever so popular tempura shrimp, this appetizer was my children’s fav of the week. They couldn’t get enough!

I love to take advantage of the same day delivery within 10km of a Nordstrom location. This service is available for $15. Also, hassle free in-store returns make it easy to stock up on your favourite wardrobe essentials! Did you know you can get alterations in-store on your Anniversary purchases! Now that’s an exceptional shopping experience if I don’t say so myself.

#Sponsor || My 3 tips for creating the perfect outdoor living space with @TheBrick

Patio season is in full swing! I love an outdoor space, it’s easily my favourite “addition” you can make to your home.  By that, I mean creating an outdoor living place can essentially add another room or two to your home. In my case, I’ve added an additional living-room and dining spot with some help from The Brick. A patio space can be an investment but it does provide additional living space much cheaper compared to adding an actual structural additional to your home. I’ve included my 3 must have components to help create a well rounded and multifunctional outdoor living space:

“Create Several Different Types of Seating”

I want my guests to feel at home and stay away on our patio. So I added both dining and lounge seating. We’ve been enjoy many a meal in the sunshine with the Park Terrace Patio Dining Set! Featuring durable resin rattan wicker on the chair and table frame, this set will look sleek and sophisticated in any backyard setting. After dinner, take in the sunset and have conversations by the fire with a lounge set. The Park Terrance set (pictured) is 2017 model, but this year’s set renamed The Morris is great too built with the same durable material. Double the seating, double the function of the space. Adding multiple forms of seating will help you stay out longer on your new patio.
