Andy Warhol is one of my favourite artists. It’s been such a great year in Toronto for Andy Warhol exhibits, and the fun continues with the newest exhibition to hit Toronto. Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen is a massive exhibition at the TIFF Bell Lighthouse. The one of a kind exhibit shares Warhol’s collection of Hollywood memorabilia, including 8x10s, magazines, posters, and costume pieces. There is also an amazing selection of his art ( drawings, screen prints and photographs.) along with video and TV work.
This exhibition runs until January 24th and admission is $13.
As the first giveaway in my 12 Days of Christmas Cheer, I’m giving away a pair of tickets!
One lucky winner will win an Evening with Andy Warhol! This package includes two (2) exhibition tickets and two (2) film tickets to Father of the Bride (January 2 screening). Tickets to the exhibition expire on December 31st.

I just came back from a trip to Japan (guys, I think I’ll be saying this forever. It’s already been two months since I returned, but it’s like I don’t want to let go.) and I was blown away by their stationery shops. Endless floors of pens, stickers, greetings cards, adorable erasers, notebooks and…washi tape. The washi tape was nothing short of amazing. Some had illustrations on them, some had stripes, tiny polka dots….you name it. I couldn’t help but wonder, why is North American tape so boring?
Luckily, that is no longer true! Enter Scotch. Scotch has been making tape that we all know and rely on for years. But did you know that they have a collection called Expressions that will appeal to the crafter in you? (more…)
Winter is all about being cozy, and nothing says cozy more than a nice pair of pajamas! La Vie en Rose makes some of the coziest pajamas around. My favourite pair right now is the Mink 2 Piece Pajama Set. Not only is the nordic pattern cute, but the PJs come with feet to keep, well, your feet warm! They have so many different styles of cute PJs. Onsies, flannel, microfleece and more! Take a look!

After the holidays are done and we’re just biding the time between Christmas and New Years, I like to go out and watch a movie. Last year I saw Frozen. This year, I really want to the The Hobbit and Into the Woods.
For an extra treat, I may go and watch them in Cineplex VIP. What’s Cineplex VIP? Only the best movie experience that you can get in Toronto. Plush, reclining seats, delicious popcorn and meals brought directly to your seat, and the drinking. Did I mention that the theaters are licensed? Yeah.
Face it: We’re all way too busy during the holidays to be constantly re-doing our nails. Have you tried CND Vinylux? Two coats of polish and a quick top coat and that’s it. Your manicure will last- touch up free- for a week! The possibilities are endless. Feeling festive? Why not give your nails a golden touch for Christmas? (more…)
