Black Friday at Chapters

I’ve been obsessed with this brie baker for years…and now it’s finally mine for only $12!

And this tote is something I’ve been coveting for a bit. I love how it’s hot pink inside! Sony sells this for $90…but I got it today for $41! I love all Built NY products.

I liked this olive feather tote too! $8.00

Hairdressers Against Aids

Hairdressers Against AIDS (HAA) is a joint collaborative between L’Oréal and UNESCO. It’s a worldwide campaign in over 25 countries, on World AIDS Day (December 1st, next week.) This year is especially significant because it marks the ten year anniversary of the campaign. This is an important event that educates the public about AIDS, and sends a positive message. This campaign has a number of creative outlets, including videos on YouTube and a celebrity calendar featuring one of my favourite actresses, Audrey Tautou.

On December 1st, Hairdressers Against Aids will be hosting a press conference in Toronto at the L’Oreal Hairdressing Academy from 10am – 12pm. If you are interested in attending, take a look at the flyer below.

Brunch at MoRoCo Chocolat

MoRoCo Cholat is one of my favourite places to have brunch in the city! It’s elegant,  beautifully ornate and sells delectable macarons. It’s an excellent place for high tea and dessert. MoRoCo has three seatings. Brunch on weekends, afternoon tea and dinner. This weekend I stopped by for brunch with a friend.

We shared a pot of Swiss Schoko tea ($10) that was served with a yummy strawberry macaron. Swiss Schoko tea was a “Ceylon black tea layered with chocolate pieces, vanilla, almond and calendula.” It was delicious, and the chocolate taste was very pleasant.

For my meal, I chose the Savoury Crepes ($17) with chicken and mushroom in a white cream sauce. It was delicious! And surprisingly filling. I also ordered a side of homefries ($6) but I didn’t end up finishing them! I’ve also had the breakfast pastry basket in the past, and it’s filled with warm breads and pastries. A good choice for only $11.

My friend had the Blackstone Eggs Benedict ($19). It was her first time having eggs benedict (I’m not a fan) and she really enjoyed them. She especially liked the capers.

In addition to the restaurant, there is also a shop attached to the store. MoRoCo makes their own chocolates and macarons. They have cookies, sweets and more for sale. I especially liked these boyfriend chocolate treats!

A Word to the Wise: MoRoCo can be a fantastic place, but it also has it’s downfalls. It’s not the best for groups, because they don’t do separate bills. Also, they automatically add a 18.5% tip to all bills. The service varies, and I usually have to beg them to bring us sugar and milk for our tea.
