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.
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.

Cavalcade of Lights: Saturday, November 26 at 7pm Nathan Phillips Square
A spectacular fireworks show and concert held by the City of Toronto once a year. This used to be every Saturday night but it looks like they changed that to only one night! Don;t miss out! The show starts at 7pm with fireworks at 8pm.
So I know we’re still getting to know each other, but there’s another thing that I’m obsessed about that you should probably know. I love tights & stockings! I spend way, way too much money on them. And today’s Crave is no exception.
I love, love, love these Wolford Bondage tights (actually, all of their tights are fantastic.) , but alas, they are out of my league. I’ve even visited the Wolford store downtown. But $65 for a pair of something I will probably end up ripping is too rich for my blood.
So I’m pretty much ecstatic now that I’ve found these replicas from England! The Pamela Mann Strap Around Tights are $14.58. I’m going to order a pair!
