If you left Father’s Day shopping until the last minute, and want to score brownie points with Dad, head down to Roots’ Flagship location at the Toronto Eaton Centre. This weekend, they have collaborated with CABIN: Barber and Gentleman Supply. With any men’s purchase from June 16-17, you can treat the man who raised and praised you to a cut or trim with CABIN’s barbers. From cue-ball smooth looks to neatly groomed, their crack team has Dad covered and gives you time to shop around Roots for something for yourself. Why not do some real bonding and book an appointment together?
Ready to groom Dad (and you)
So how did Roots X CABIN partner up for this event? CABIN Creative Director, Louie Manzo told View the VIBE, “Roots reached out and we both felt that our brands were aligned. We have the same aesthetic; the same wholesome principles and a Canadiana feel that unites us. Our high levels of service made us a natural fit.” Manzo also gave us the scoop on grooming tips for the man in your life. His number one tip is if someone notices that you need a haircut, then you have gone too long. If you can’t fix it, you should feature it either by getting professional grooming or using the right products from pomades, to lotions and oil to straight-blade and safety razors. All of the time-honoured, traditional men’s grooming products work the best. Your look is unique to you, and Manzo says one of his favourite mantras is “Stand tall and be confident.”
We also had the chance to speak with Elyse Goody, PR Manager for Roots Canada to find out more. “This Father’s Day event is the perfect example of creating something special for our customers in a way that unique to Roots. The Toronto Eaton Centre location is one of Roots Experience Stores. There are ten of these stores across Canada and now in the US as well.” Goody continues, “They have lots of special features that are more enhanced than our traditional locations. For one thing, we can hold events and provide special, unique experiences for our customers. We even have customization workshops at some locations focused on our leather goods, so you can personalize an Award Jacket or customize a leather bag. ”
We know all you last minute shoppers are waiting for the top picks for gifts. With Goody and Manzo’s help, we recommend:
The Banff Bag
This luxurious gift (top right) is hand burnished and polished Tribe Leather – imported from Italy and constructed in Toronto. Between all of the leather and hardware components, no fewer than ten artisans touch the bag before it gets to you (or your Dad).
Whistler Weekender Canvas
We loved this bag in khaki. It’s the perfect weekender.
Made in Canada Collection (see above)
With everything from t-shirts, Roots hoodies, caps and Award Jackets, this all Canadian collection will please your patriotic pop. With the whole country feel the pride of the Toronto Raptors NBA Championship win, you can’t go wrong with any of these items.
A Roots Shaving Kit (bottom left) filled with grooming products will remind Dad of the great time he had getting pampered at the Roots X CABIN Father’s Day Barber Shop Pop-Up.
Looking to maintain your figure this summer while having fun? Don’t feel awkward about it — every year, around 45 million Americans go on a diet. While it’s true that keeping your figure is difficult, you can always make it fun and easy with new discoveries.
The key is to stay curious about the healthy foods you eat. Wonder how each recipe is going to taste even if the ingredients are the same. Below is a list of the best summer foods you can cook up at home.
1. Eggplant Fries
Let’s begin our healthy summer foods list with an easy recipe. Potatoes aren’t the only vegetable you can turn into fries. Eggplants are a close cousin of potatoes, making them a healthy alternative for fries.
Heat the oven to 425’ F and prepare the baking sheet. Prepare your unpeeled eggplant fries by cutting them into uniform shapes. Season the sticks with salt as you toss them in a bowl.
Coat your fries into egg white. Mix breadcrumbs and Parmesan in a resealable bag then place your coated eggplants in. Shake the bag to get even coating onto the fries.
Remove your eggplant fries from the bag and place them in a single layer on the baking sheet. Spray with cooking spray and roast for 15 minutes. Flip them every 5 minutes until crisp and golden-brown.
For the dip, get 1 cup of Greek yogurt into a bowl. Mix garlic powder, dried parsley, dried them, kosher salt, and ground pepper. Use ½ tsp. for each of the spices.
2. Thai Chicken and Watermelon Salad
If you’re a fan of Thai food, this combination of summertime foods should be a great recipe to add to your summer diet.
Combine 2 minced lemongrass stalks, ¼ cup vegetable oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Add 1 ½ pound of butterflied chicken breast halves and marinate for 30 minutes. Make sure it’s skinless and boneless.
Grill the chicken over high heat, turning once till cooked through. This should take about 6 minutes. Let it cool for a few minutes and then cut into ½-inch dice.
Grab 2 Thai chiles and 2 garlic cloves, each cut in thin slices. Prepare 2 tbsp. brown sugar, 2 tbsp. lime juice, 3 tbsp. Asian fish sauce, and 2 tbsp. water. Pour these foods in a mini food processor until the chiles and garlic get chopped well.
Pour this dressing over the chicken. Cut 2 ½ pounds of seedless watermelons in various ball sizes then prepare ¼ cup each of chopped mint and cilantro. Stir them into the salad and serve.
3. Sweet and Spicy Grilled Salmon
Find confidence in joining the next neighborhood grill party with this healthy recipe.
The first thing you need is to preheat a grill on medium high. Grab 2 tbsp. of hot sauce, 1 tbsp. of brown sugar, 1 tsp. of smoked paprika, and ¼ tsp. of cayenne pepper. Mix these ingredients in a small bowl then transfer 1 tbsp. of the mixture into a large bowl.
Whisk this with 2 tbsp. light mayonnaise as you set aside the rest of the sauce. Add 1 tbsp. snipped chives, thin half-moon slices of 8 celery stalks, and thin slices of ½ small, red onion to the mayonnaise bowl. Toss well.
Sprinkle salt and ground pepper onto four 5-ounces, 1-inch thick salmon fillets. The fillet should be center-cut and skin-on. Lay fillets on oiled grill, skin-side up until grill marks appear and releases with ease from the grill.
Turn and brush the fish with the reserved sauce until cooked through. Brush them every few minutes with the sauce. Transfer and serve with the celery slaw.
4. Muesli and Raspberries Make Awesome Summer Foods
Haven’t got much time to prep food? Try this 5-minute snack or breakfast food for healthy nutrition. All you need is 1/3 cup of muesli, 1 cupful of raspberries, and ¾ cup low-fat milk.
Put muesli in a bowl and top with raspberries. Add milk and serve for a high-fiber, soy-free snack. This diet food is rich in vitamin C and calcium.
5. Homemade Orange Sherbet
When it comes to summer comfort foods, nothing is better than creamy orange sherbet. Homemade ice cream turns healthy. For this, chill an ice cream bowl.
Blend 1 ½ cups orange juice, 1 cup half-and-half, and ½ cup buttermilk. Don’t’ forget to add ½ sugar, ¼ cup corn syrup, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, and 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
Transfer the base to an airtight container. You can choose to churn it right away. You can also choose to refrigerate it overnight for more flavor.
Churn the base until thickened. After that, transfer to a freezer container. Wrap with wax paper or parchment to prevent ice crystals from forming and leave the sherbet in the fridge for 2 hours.
6. Crispy Fish Sandwich with Herb Remoulade
For a taste of the sea, try this classic fried fish sandwich.
Heat canola oil in a small skillet, then add 1 cup of panko crumbs over low heat. Keep stirring until they’re golden. Stir 1 tsp. of Old Bay seasoning and then transfer toasted crumbs to a plate.
Whisk ¼ cup fromage blanc in a bowl with 1 tbsp. mustard, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, and ½ tsp. of Tobasco. Also, add 3 tbsp. chopped cornichons, 1 tbsp. finely-chopped parsley, and 2 tbsp. finely-chopped tarragon. Season the remoulade with salt and ground pepper.
Grill 4 split kaiser rolls until somewhat toasted. Next, transfer them to plates and spread with remoulade. Go back to your grill with the fish, seasoned with salt and pepper.
Use moderate heat and turn the fish once until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and then press into the panko and toasted roll. Top the lettuce with tomato and serve.
7. Peach Iced Tea
Of course, our top summer foods wouldn’t be complete without drinks to wash down the food. Instead of reaching for the soda, make your own iced tea at home. Grab 6 black tea bags, ½ cup fresh mint leaves, and 2 ripe peaches cut into chunks.
Put your peaches as well as the mint in a big pitcher. Muddle the peaches using a wooden spoon till they’re broken down. Add the tea bags and after that, add 6 cups of boiling water.
Let steep for 20 minutes before you pull out the tea bags. Refrigerate the tea until it’s cold or fill your glasses with ice before the iced tea. If you want, garnish with mint.
Eat Healthy This Summer!
Those are our top 7 summer foods to make this 2019. Feel free to embrace the grill this season because it’s going to be your new best friend. Eating lots of fresh produce will for sure keep your energy up as you travel, swim, and/or hike.

Enjoy the Food the Florida Keys Has to Offer
For your upcoming trip to the Florida Keys, now you’ll have a list of must-try restaurants. If you or your significant other are foodies, these restaurants definitely won’t disappoint!
If you want to read more on traveling, then take a look at the articles on our website.
There’s one in every family (or group of friends). That one person who talks all year about a “friend-cation“ or family trip and then fusses about every detail.
We can’t help you decide which restaurants to eat in, or what activities are the most exciting. What we can do is help you figure out how a rental split can work so that every traveler feels happy about the arrangements.
Read on and discover a few creative options for splitting vacation rental costs.
Know Before You Go
First, remember this is a vacation and you’re spending it with people you love. The main goal is going home with awesome memories and relationships intact.
Start with a planning session where you gather ideas from each person. This is the meeting where you also discuss splitting major expenses.
The rental split is only one point of discussion. You should also talk about food costs, transportation, and entertainment.
While spontaneity should always be a part of a vacation, if you can agree on the basics of sharing costs, the trip should go more smoothly.
The Flat Rate Vacation
If you can get everyone on the same page, the flat rate rental is the easiest. Remember that detail minded person we mentioned earlier? This may not work as well for them, but it’s a great starting place.
Charging everyone a flat rate assumes the rooms are roughly the same quality and size. Or, your traveling companions aren’t worried about one-upping each other as far as their assigned rooms go. Even if you find a vacation rental with a variety of room sizes, this method can work!
If you choose the flat rate system, you’ll simply calculate the total cost of the rental and split it evenly. No arguments over whether one person has more closet space and another has a better view of the lake.
This likely works best if all people sharing costs are single and there are no children. We’ll talk about why next.
The Family Rental Split
A group of single friends can usually agree on an even split for a vacation rental. But if this is a family vacation and you include family members with children, things get a bit more complicated. Inviting families who don’t have kids, or who can’t stay for the entire trip adds another layer of difficulty.
We have a solution that works for any of the above scenarios. Our formula works even if the rooms are different sizes and some guests share a bathroom.
First, calculate the number of nights each family member stays in the rental. Hint: If it’s your job to find a vacation rental, make sure you ask about the charge for children. In some cases, infants are free but children over 2 years of age count as a paying guest.
Second, divide the total cost for your rental by the total number of nights you’ll rent the property. This gives you the per family member rate per night.
Doesn’t that sound better than figuring out whether a person should pay half, a third, and so on of the total rental fee?
Since couples often vacation together, next we’ll look at an easy way couples can split costs.
How to Split Rent with a Couple
If you’re lucky enough to have friends who you enjoy sharing a vacation with, don’t ruin the partnership by squabbling over how much you each pay for the rental home.
If possible, find a rental with two master suites. The obvious advantage to that is each couple has a private sleeping area and their own bathroom.
If you can’t find a rental with two master suites, at least look for a property with rooms of the same quality and size. Each couple splits the cost equally and everyone has a wonderful vacation.
Don’t Fight Over the Hot Tub Suite
What happens if you rent a vacation home with one fantastic master jacuzzi suite, a few large rooms, and one or two smaller, or standard rooms? If you ask for an equal split between all guests, expect more than one set of raised eyebrows.
We won’t figure out your costs for you but here are a few suggestions that should keep the split fair for everyone.
If the property has one master suite, invite the grandparents and let them stay in it! As long as all guests are family, and have the budget for it, You could even pay their share.
We know that still doesn’t help you with how to calculate the per room charge for the other accommodations. Let’s make it relatively simple!
Assume each family uses the size room (or rooms) appropriate for the size of their group. Then, you can agree on a cost per room based on room size/amenities.
Now you see why a pre-trip planning session makes sense, right?
A Word About Dropouts
Always plan for the family or guest who can’t make the trip at the last minute. It stinks for that person but sometimes life happens. and vacations don’t.
In your planning session, make sure you talk about a back-up plan. Most vacation rentals require a down payment, and some ask for full payment a week or so before you visit. For the last minute cancellation, how will it impact the entire group?
If the cancellation occurs far enough in advance, you may have time to switch rentals. If not, consider inviting another paying guest as a replacement. If a replacement won’t work, the guest who cancels should cover at least some of their costs.
Have a Wonderful Vacation
It’s the season for fun and we hope you’re inspired to pair up with friends or family and make some summer travel memories.
Turns out traveling with friends (or family) is a healthy activity. Just don’t let divvying up expenses be the challenge that prevents you from sharing time with people you care about. Use one of our suggestions for a rental split and start packing.

2. Check out the Farmer’s Markets
In Rome, do as the Romans do. In West Palm Beach, the locals go to farmer’s markets. Often.
The first notable market is West Palm Beach Green Market. Located at the waterfront near Clematis Street, Green Market happens every Saturday.

You can find antiques from nearly every era in every style. From French textiles to jewels from Louis XIV’s time. You might find your new favorite necklace or a Belgian bookshelf for your home.

After having read Jules Verne’s classic novel, Around The World In 80 Days, a lot of us probably had the same lingering question in mind: Is there a way to actually get this done?
A new interactive guide by Betway titled Around The World In 80 Hours focuses on just that. To start off, the guide lists the different modes of transport available to make this travel expedition happen, whether it’s land, air or water. This gives users the freedom to plan their journey according to their convenience and choice of preferred method.
The journey for each transportation mode is broken down into 8 legs and follows the same pathway taken by the novel’s protagonist Phileas Fogg. While the guide may have been inspired by the book, it targets not just those interested in Fogg’s journey, but also travelers seeking new ways to explore the world.
The entire journey through each method is mapped out from start to finish, all the while stating the duration to and from each destination. This makes it easier for the traveler to create a schedule for themselves with exact timings in mind. In addition, the guide also states the number of days it would take for the entire expedition to be completed. The medium’s visual and interactivity features adds in a further layer of ease and excitement when it comes to planning the voyage.
