Macaron Day!

Ohmigosh, Toronto. Tomorrow, these pillow-y mounds of goodness get a special day devoted to them.
That’s right, tomorrow is Macaron Day. (hmm. I guess you could have guessed something else. For shame.)

Participating patisseries throughout the city will be offering up free macarons in support of the Red Door Family shelter. To get your macaron, pick a participating shop from this list and mention you are celebrating Macaron Day TO. You will get 1 macaron for free, while supplies last. If one just isn’t enough,

25 percent of all additional macaron purchased on this day will be donated to the Red Door Family Shelter.

Not sure which store to visit first? I recommend two of my favourites, La Bamboche or MoRoCo Chocolat.

Soïa & Kyo FW12

Ah, Fashion Week. Toronto fashionistas get to preen and be seen. What could be better? Last night, I checked out Soïa & Kyo, the brain child of Ilan Elfassy. This Montreal line gets its name from Ilan’s admiration of Japanese culture, and loosely stands for “beginning today”. The 2012-2013 collection features fur trim, bold cuts and structured hoods.
Models toted bundled blankets held by leather straps and donned fur trapper hats. The colours were mostly muted greys, khakis and browns, with a smattering of reds and mustard tones. Check it out!

Are you passionate about styling and working with hair? Do you always whip up fab hairstyles and cuts? Win a scholarship to the Aveda Hair Institute in your choice of city! Every Institute has a talented family of alumni hairdressers, so it’s like you are joining a family. (Where every member can give you an awesome hair cut.)

To enter, you need to create a video showing that you are born to style. The video should be max two minutes long. The contest closes on March 31st, 2012 at 11:59:59 a.m. ET.

Europe on the Brain


Forgive me if I’ve been a bit scattered, readers. My head has been in the clouds, because I’m taking a dream trip in May to France and Italy! I’ve been stressing out over choosing the right hotel, and saving up! I’m also going to New York in a couple of weeks! Expect lots of travel posts!

Happy first day of March! To celebrate, I’m giving away 3 pairs of tickets to the National Home Show! (Thanks, Home Show!)
