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

Local Joe's for the atmosphere and cheesecake, I also love the little Steve-O-Reno's drive thru

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

(The Economy) Shoe Shop - Halifax

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

Biscuit (General Store) – Halifax

What's the one meal you miss the most when you're away?

I love il Mercato (We have been going there for years) I just went last week when I was home in Hali, and had risotto balls (Funny name) and the pasta special and I could have licked my bowl, it was so good. There is so much good food, it's easy to say nachos, lobster, Chilean noodles from the market on Saturday.

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

Kelly's mountain, has the best view - I think it's the second stop, you know those stops they have, so you can park and look at the view. It gets me every time.

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

1. Go swimming at Melmerby Beach, gorgeous beach outside of New Glasgow (or just go for a walk on it if its too cold)

2. Visit Cape Breton in the fall

3. Go to Harvest Gallery in Wolfville and see all the amazing artists who live around that area.

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

It's my home. My parents and family , and good friends are there. Growing up in Cape Breton, gave me such special memories, wonderful memories and good times spent at my family cottage in Ross's Ferry. I also miss the ocean. I am not big on lakes. I am a lover of the jellyfish!
