Honest review of @steannesspa coming in a few weeks on the blog, with the pros and cons of this popular overnight spa an hour and a half outside of Toronto. Indulged in the three course meals included in the package...which meant desserts every meal 🍔 The beef is from Ste. Anne's own cattle farm, humanely grown, and hormone and antibiotic free, as part of their Homegrown Beef Program. eatlocal

I finished filling out the unravelyouryear2018 journal before the new year. It was a long process, somewhat intense, and it helped me document how much I learned/changed/grew in 2017. Last year, I got rid of a lot of BS in my life: beliefs, people, bad habits, fears, etc. I learned to communicate better and be surrounded with positive people who help me grow, nothing less. I'm better at trusting my intuition and listening to myself. My spiritual growth is important to me, and it will continue as I deepen my studies with @kabbalahcentre. I've been at it for 8 years now. This year I discovered @thetahealingbyvianna, which has helped me tremendously. I look forward to taking my first ThetaHealing class. For the blog, I'm more comfortable writing in my own voice and not mortified to be in photos anymore. See my top ten posts of 2017 on the blog (link in bio), where I analyze why they are popular. Let me know what you want to see more of on Terumah.ca. Ethical outfit posts are popular, but what about more lifestyle tips? Art and entertainment? Styling tips? Personal essays? Drop me a note. 😘 happy2018

Comment from T E R U M A H / Annie Zhu:


I love Tchaikovsky's ballet suites, my fave being The Nutcracker. This was my first time seeing the ballet, which gave the songs context. The story is sooo trippy. Rollerskating bears, a dancing horse, giant rats, a Sugar Plum Fairy who lives in a Fabergé egg...who came up with this stuff? The best character is crazy Uncle Nikolai. Every song is a friggin hit. By the second act, I was moved to tears. Just so good on every level. Each production of The Nutcracker is different, so what I saw in Toronto is not going to be the same story performed in your city. No photos were allowed during the performance, but I snuck one in during the applause at the end dreamy CulturalChristmas torontochristmas

A soda fountain from 1855 @pharmacymuseum. Sweet-flavoured syrups made bitter medicines more palatable, and sparkling waters were added because bubbles were thought to have curative properties and stimulate the system. No surprise sodas like Coca-Cola and Dr. pepper were invented by pharmacists and sold as tonics. This museum's pretty cool. It was America's first licensed pharmacy. What's really awesome is that it's one of the real locations in the vampire legends book. Bloodletting used to be popular back in the day to cure and prevent illness. The Carter brothers (vampires) supposedly struck a deal with the pharmacists and came here to get their fix of blood squeezed from the leeches. A non-murderous method of obtaining human blood. Urban legend? 🤤

Wanted a cup of tea, found this place, and thought, what the heck, I'll get a tea leaf reading. I had a ten-minute reading with Otis, who has been doing readings here since the '70s. It was all positive, and I had a fun experience. Just one of the many memorable experiences I had in New Orleans🍵🍵🍵tasseography

A creepy photo of me and my friend, typical of the art/photography I see around New Orleans - in homes, restaurants, galleries. Why is creepy art a thing? Apparently, creepy is cool here, and I do agree it goes well with the vibe of the city. 👹😈👽

The famous Carousel Bar that slowly spins inside @hotelmonteleone. The hotel has a rich literary history, used as a setting in over 173 stories and novels, and it has hosted authors such as Truman Capote, William Faulkner, and Ernest Hemingway. Fun to visit but you couldn't pay me to stay here or any of the other old hotels in the French Quarter. Just super haunted, with countless ghost sightings.

This is the book about vampire legends I've just finished reading, containing the three major stories of vampires in New Orleans: the Casket girls, the Comte St. Germain, and the Carter Brothers. It is fact based, so you decide for yourself if you believe in vampires. The author is the owner of Boutique du Vampyre. The stories fascinated me, but the one that freaked me out was in the afterword, where the author wrote about her real-life encounter with a strange man who could be a vampire. Good thing I was already back in Toronto when I read that part. 😂 azreadsbooks

So I didn't do any ghost or voodoo tours in New Orleans because I realized when I got here that I wanted to be able to sleep at night. What I did do was visit the Boutique du Vampyre on St Ann Street. It's a little shop stocked with all your vampire needs, and they even make custom fangs. I bought a book about vampire legends in New Orleans. They are so fascinating. It's a really old city with all these crazy stories in real settings. A bunch of Anne Rice novels are set here too. Do you believe in vampires?

So I tried beignets from @cafedumonde and @cafebeignetnola. You can't go wrong with deep-fried dough with powdered sugar, but I agree Cafe du Monde is the best. Cafe Beignet's were a bit crunchier, or maybe it was just my batch. If the lineup at Cafe du Monde is too long, buy them in their separate takeout line, and eat them in Jackson Square. neworleans latergram
