This place is a heaven for people who like Indian food and might look for vegan, gluten-free meal options. This is authentic Indian cuisine with a variety of traditional dishes, including dessert and drinks (mango Lassi, Masala tea).
We went for a lunch buffet, hours 11 AM to 2 PM. The cost was $15 per person which includes fresh out of oven butter naan and drink of your choice from the menu. It was delicious!
We tried vegetable pakoras, butter chicken with basmati rice, kadhai paneer. So good!
I couldn't resist and went for seconds. On the picture above: more kadhai paneer, fish pakora, basmati rice, bhindi masala, beef korma.
I highly recommend this place to anyone who enjoys Indian cuisine or just wants to try something different: 112-1677 Commerce Drive, Kelowna along Hwy97.
At the time of a visit we thought this will be a raving review, but after both of us got stomach problems after eating the garlic pork dish, our opinion has changed.
I checked Google reviews for Thai Terrace and everyone seem to rate 5 out of 5. Maybe we got an end of the roll deal? Who knows?
The location of the restaurant is downtown Kelowna, intersection of Water St and 210 Lawrence St. The restaurant has a terrace with a view of City Park and the lake, which will be pretty nice in the spring/summer. The atmosphere is casual, very laid back, we were greeted warmly. The seating is comfortable with dark purple velvet bench and velvet cushions.
The menu offers some authentic Thai dishes. The truth is, Thailand has so many varieties of a seafood, noodle and rice dishes that it wouldn't be simple to integrate all that diapason into North American reality. Nevertheless, most known dishes are presented by Green Papaya Salad, Tom Yam soup, Tom Kha Kai soup (menu calls it coconut hot&sour soup), Pad Thai, Mussaman Curry, Red/Green Curry. There is even an authentic Thai beer on the menu! People that visited Thailand will notice that menu is missing some of the market favorites: fish in salt, BBQ chicken marinated in special sauce, prawns and most seafood.
We ordered garlic pork stir fry under signature dishes with jasmine rice and coffee.
The pork tasted OK, except lettuce was yellowish. Rice was made to perfection.
This one was an emergency pit stop, as we were super hungry. And we were glad we did!
Viva Mexicana serves authentic Mexican food: tacos, enchiladas, burritos. We really liked they have Mexican soda in different flavors. They also are licensed for alcohol and serve Margaritas!
The food came out in about 10-15 min and was freshly cooked. We ordered fish tacos and chicken enchilada. Both were super delicious and tasted just like in Mexico!
I loved our server: he was attentive and super friendly. The Margarita was mixed right, in good proportions. Overall experience, including visit to the washroom was positive, so we do not hesitate recommending this place.
Viva Mexicana is located 9685 Hwy 97, Lake Country in a mall along the highway.
This was my third visit to Cirque du Soleil and I enjoyed every minute of the Corteo performance. They are simply put, the best!
Corteo performance includes all traditional circus elements: acrobatics, juggling, equilibristics, vaulting, clowns, aerial straps, balancing on a freestanding ladder, artistic cycling, danish pole. Amazing life sound and singing adds depth to each element. The costumes and decorations are well-thought with great imagination. It is forbidden to take pictures during the performance due to safety reasons.
The highlight of the show for me personally was Valentina (vertically challenged performer) flying on three huge balloons. The viewers were involved into the show, as we were asked to give Valentina a push up, when she goes down. The balloons were directed at the huge chandelier hanging above crowd and were afraid that balloons will pop. But that didn't happen and Valentina safely returned back to clown.
In conclusion: the Corteo performance isn't as thrilling as KOOZA or TORUK, but it is a very good performance for families with children. It is easy to understand, interactive, funny, amazing! I highly recommend for people of all ages!
Naked Pig restaurant goes hard on pork dishes: pork Mac-n-cheese, pulled pork sandwich, brisket philly, Havana cubano, bacon cheddar burger, carnita tacos with pulled pork, BBQ ribs. They also serve vegetarian bowls, beef burgers, pizza, eggs Benny and various breakfast dishes.
Another specialty of this restaurant home brewed kombucha and craft beers, bourbon and specialty roasted coffee, so if you like any of those items you know where to go! 2933 30th Ave, Vernon, BC at the corner of 30th St and 30th Ave.
We ordered chai tea latte, London fog latte, Badass brisket philly, eggs Benny with brisket.
Latte was made to perfection- frothy with just right amount of sweetener. Eggs Benny arrived with a huge chunk of meat hidden under the egg, with a mountain of hash browns and two slice of water melon. Everything was delicious and just cooked right.
Badass Brisket Philly had a lot of meat on a savory and crispy bun. The meal was served with fresh crispy fries.
The atmosphere is nonchalant, very laid back. The furniture has a true antique vibe to it.
This is a good place to eat out if you are in the area: good food, good vibes, affordable.
In the previous post I wrote about my new fall skin care routine, which includes BHA exfoliating toner. And after a few weeks I see amazing results from religiously using COSRX 1% BHA and bee propolis toner.
However with a great power comes a greater responsibility. I mean, I have to wear SPF 50+ every day outside (no matter rain or shine). In the end of the day cleaning my face becomes a chore.
I like easy and effective solutions, so I decided to try cleansing tissue as my very first step. The tissue removes most of the makeup and sun lotion.
The SAEM Healing Tea Garden Green Tea Cleansing Tissue is a part of the SAEM's Healing Tea Garden line. Formulated with the skin's changing conditions due to seasonal / environmental variations in mind, the Healing Tea Garden line focuses on melting away the daily stresses from your skin just like you would melt away your mental stresses during tea time with a cup of healing tea. Its goal is to provide your skin with a breath of fresh air and a moment of relaxation, promoting clear and healthy skin.
The SAEM Healing Tea Garden Green Tea Cleansing Tissue contains organic green tea extract that helps maintain the oil/moisture balance of your skin and supplements moisture to keep the skin from drying out after cleansing.
This one I recommend to anyone:

I decided to try Farm Stay galactomyces all-in-one CC cream, as I like effective solutions and this cream has good reviews. Farm Stay galactomyces CC cream minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines; has a high SPF factor to protect the skin from the sun; naturally blends and controls color. It is enriched with galactomyces extract that’s rich in vitamins and minerals.
What is galactomyces? I like trying new skin care and I am a curious monkey!
This is what I found: " Galactomyces is a type of fungus! The point is, galactomyces is a proven skincare ingredient! There are numerous scientific studies that show that galactomyces ferment filtrate (the liquid filtered out after the mold does its job of fermenting stuff) is effective in moisturizing, brightening, controlling sebum production, decreasing acne, and increasing elasticity. In one study published in the Korean Journal of Aesthetic Cosmetology in 2014, the research team concluded that “the number of the large opened pores and blackhead pores on faces were significantly reduced more than 15.66 and 21.84% by treating the essence as compared to the number of pores on untreated control faces. Also the amount of sebum and keratin in faces were meaningfully reduced by 64.17 and 16.47%, respectively. In addition, we further demonstrated that the levels of the skin brightness were improved after treatment of the reagent by 2.49% respectively. Moreover, the number of acne were decreased 9.59%.”
From my own experience I noticed my skin feels nourished and well-hydrated all day long. CC cream comes on rather pale out of a tube, but it mimicries my own skin tone after 2-3 minutes. It lasts all day and stays put. I still use a daily moisturizer underneath it, since it is fall and skin is adapting to new temperatures/moisture altitudes.
If you are looking for a great CC cream, I highly recommend this one:

Saver #3 Ginger sugar lip balm stick from ARITAUM
I opened it recently due to Nivea balm no longer providing moisture to my chapping lips. It must be fall!
This is something I can't live without. People that suffer from dry and chapped lips will understand me, I am sure of it.
Ginger sugar balm contains the high-moisturizing oils and natural butter, leaving the moisture-keeping-film on lips. It contains the ginger, orange oil, sugar and shea butter: the powerful moisturizing.
