Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a coffee?

I went to Lion & Bright on Agricola Street in Halifax last weekend. Not only is a gorgeous space, but they make a mean Macchiato.

Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a pint?

I am currently loving The Stubborn Goat on Grafton Street in Halifax. It seems like they have a hundred beers on offer but the servers are really great at helping you pare down the selection to find something you’ll like.

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Nova Scotia?

Bellissimo! on Agricola Street is one of my favourite stores in Halifax. Gorgeous fabrics, chic furniture, cool lighting and lots of elegant home accessories to drool over.

Where in Nova Scotia would we stand to see your favourite view?

I know I’m not alone when I say the end of the Skyline Trail in Cape Breton took my breath away the first time I saw it.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit Nova Scotia:

1. Sit and have lunch on a bench in the Halifax Public Gardens.

2. Head out of Halifax down the St. Margaret’s Bay Road until you get to the South Shore. Stop often.

3. Stay at Cabot Links. Make sure you take a day to soak up the sun on Inverness Beach.

What makes Nova Scotia such a special place on earth for you?

From the southern tip of Yarmouth all the way to the top of The Cabot Trail, Nova Scotia is a wonder that never ceases to amaze me. I am left in awe on a daily basis at its beauty and at the fact that I am lucky enough to live here. Maybe I’m biased, but there really is no place like home.
