I was set to host my family who was visiting from Toronto and Kingston, and my plans got derailed when we discovered water leaking into our basement a few weeks ago (yes- renos coming soon!)

Whether you’re looking for something to do with the family on the Civic holiday long weekend or Labour Day long weekend, a road trip is always a good idea. A quick road trip to Montebello is an even better idea… and in a BMW X3 is probably THE BEST idea!

I can appreciate however, that finding a swimsuit for your body type can be quite the challenging assignment, which is why I put together some tips on how to select and buy a swimsuit both in-person and online!
