Do you live in Ottawa? Ever shop and wander around the Westboro area? Are you the kind of person who likes to get a heads up about great finds and support local business? Subscribe to the Extra Helping*, a free email spotlight on one great product, service, nook, or edible treat from the wilds of Westboro Village. It’s a “hello, look what I found” note, fortified with freshness and served up in a tidy little package and delivered right to your inbox on a semi-regular basis. (I’m aiming for 3 or 4 times a month.)
This extra content will not be published here on the blog, and it could be about a swank pair of shoes, a stupendous cupcake, a fresh vegetable, or something sparkly. If you already follow me on Pinterest and/or my shopping-related blog posts and tweets you may find this mysteriously compelling.
I’m also looking for Shop Spies! If you love (a) Westboro and (b) window shopping as much as I do, contact me for more info. :)
Thank you for your support!
Thank you for visiting! My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (14) and Sarah (12). I've been blogging since 1999, which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran of the Canadian blog scene, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I am the Managing Editor of Capital Parent Newspaper but also make my living doing a bunch of other fun things. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for parents and kids. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
