I don’t know about you, but I’m really happy to see the temperature sky rocket in Toronto this week. I’m bringing out all of my nautical outfits and ballet flats. Yay! The sun may be ready, but my skin is not! My lips have been in need of a little prep to get rid of the dry days of winter.

Enter Mèreadesso Tinted Lip Treats ($28). These balms come in pairs so that you can leave one at home on your nightstand, and pop the other in your makeup bag. The Lip Treats come in a sheer pink colour, that you can build by swiping on more. They make my lips feel really soft and moisturized. So what’s inside? A blend of evening primrose, grape seed, coconut and sunflower oils and Vitamins C and E. It’s a perfect blend to get your lips ready for summer. Bonus- it also acts as a primer.

So, as it turns out, planning a wedding isn’t all that easy. Although I love to plan, there’s a certain kind of stress that comes with planning the biggest party of your life. For me, the most stressful part was picking a date and a venue. Now that that’s finally done, I can get down to some of the fun bits, like picking my wedding photographer and florist. I’m trying to stay organized, so I have a trifecta of stationary to help me out. (more…)

Toronto Craft Cider Cruise

It’s almost Ontario Cider Week! From May 27th to June 4th, this week is devoted to celebrating local cider. This is my favourite week, because cider is my preferred drink of choice. Cider is rapidly becoming more popular in Toronto, which is awesome to see.

I’m really excited to share this event with you! The Craft Cider Cruise brings together 12 cider companies and 1 brewery for an evening cruise along Lake Ontario on June 5th, at 7pm. This 3 hour boat ride is $40 and includes a commemorative mug along with four sample tokens that can be used at one of the participating cider companies for a 4oz sample of your choice. There will also be some tasty bites to buy on board.

Participating cider companies include: Pommies, Forbidden, Spirit Tree, Thornbury, Revel Cider, Shiny Apple Cider and more.

Sounds like fun? Grab your ticket here before it sells out!
