Bask-It-Style_2017-307

Ah, to be a celebrity during TIFF. There are many lounges designed to showcase the newest and best to A-list celebs. I got the chance to visit one of the lounges, the Bask-it Style Lounge held at the Thompson Hotel. This lounge does things a bit differently by delivering a bag full of treats directly to the stars hotel room.

In the past celebrities gifted include: Matt Damon, Jennifer Garner, Julianne Moore, Naomi Watts, Colin Farrell, John Legend, Sir Elton John, Rachel McAdams, Pierce Brosnan, Blake Lively,Olivia Wilde, Tom Wilkinson, Rachel Weisz, Iggy Pop, Princess Charlotte of Monaco, Elle Fanning, Helen Mirren, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman and many more

I attended the preview to get a sneak peek of what’s in the bag! (more…)

Canada’s African & Caribbean Wedding Show

I’ve been enjoying being engaged, and attending a vast majority of wedding shows! I’ve attended small indie wedding shows, lavish Indian wedding shows and massive north American wedding shows. I’m really happy that there’s a Caribbean and African Wedding Show! I’ve been struggling to find a bridal hair dresser, and I know that I’ll be able to find vendors that can do my hair and much much more.

  • a welcome glass of champagne

Cheap & Cheerful Winter Date Night Ideas

It’s starting to get a little bit brighter outside, and milder weather is definitely on the way! That being said, the Toronto winter weather has been known to return with a vengeance! Winter is definitely sticking around for the next few weeks.

I love being downtown all the time, but I am a sucker for an impulse buy. That bakery has a new matcha croissant? Sold. There’s a sale on a cute pair of shoes? Don’t mind if I do! Now that I’m saving up for a wedding and a condo, I need to stop these impulse buys. Loan & Go has some great tips on how to avoid impulse buys!

Another way I’m trying to save money is by going on thriftier date nights. There are lots of great cost effective ways in Toronto to still have fun, but save some cash. Here are some ideas!

Catch the Toronto Light Festival at the Distillery District. Not only is this totally free, but it’s romantic and tons of fun! My favourite is the coloured rings installation.

There’s something bright to look forward to during these dark winter months! The very first Toronto Light Festival has arrived in the city. Until March 12th visitors to the Distillery District can enjoy 21 light installations nightly until 11pm. The installations range from interactive to fun to awe inspiring. The festival is free, and they have several booths offering up warm bites and drinks. Visitors can find booths selling mulled wine, hot chocolate, soup and more. I checked out the festival, take a look at my photos! http://www.torontolightfest.com (more…)
