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This extra content will not be published here on the blog, and it could be about a swank pair of shoes, a stupendous cupcake, a fresh vegetable, or something sparkly.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!
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 am the Editor of the Kitchissippi Times as well as Capital Parent Newspaper. I'm also a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999 (which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which). The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
