Getting my Mojo Bowl on with Acai Bowls

Getting my Mojo Bowl on with Acai Bowls

I’m sure you’ve heard about bloggers and Youtubers raving about Acai bowls. I’ve wanted to try it for a long time, but I’ve been holding back because I figured it was generally the same as what I make myself for breakfast sometimes. But since it’s close to where I live, it seemed appropriate to try it out and see if it actually tastes good or if people are just saying it’s “good” because it’s a superfood. I got to find out the truth behind Acai bowls.

A Birthday at Colette Grand Cafe Toronto | Fashion

A Birthday at Colette Grand Cafe Toronto | Fashion

I checked out Colette Grand Cafe in Toronto to see if it matches up with the reputation it has on Instagram. Is it as good as it seems online on Instagram? On Instagram, when you look up Colette, you see beautiful, bright, delicious foods with instagram-worthy backdrops and floor-drops for photos. Many bloggers and Instagramers visit the cafe to get professional looking photos without trying too hard. My friend Linda had her birthday shoot here, so it was a great chance for Esther, Linda, and I to check out how the place really looked and how the food tasted.

Revisiting a Childhood Memory Again| Fashion

Revisiting a Childhood Memory Again| Fashion

Have you ever thought back into your childhood memory and remembered a place that you found was beautiful, fun, and unlike any other you’ve visited? I recently did. I took a trip to Mill Pond Park to see if the place in my memory was real. To my delight, it in fact was real. Obviously it was much smaller than I anticipated since I was a lot younger, but it definitely still captured the same beauty, light, and fun. The exact place I remembered was far off in the back and corner of the park. It was a straw field with […]

Rain, Rain, Go Away | Layering with Different Textures

Rain, Rain, Go Away | Layering with Different Textures

Told you I’d wear the hell out of my houndstooth skirt. Instead of wearing it for a light outfit, I’m styling it to keep me warm. It’s been raining a lot since Spring came around. When I think of rain, I think: ick. Go away please. For whatever reason, I never want to wear colours when it’s raining. Maybe because it’s so gloomy and dark that it just puts me off. The only time I really want to wear a bright outfit is when the sun is radiating in the sky. Oh, I miss that weather. Well, I guess I’ll suck it […]

Manning Up for the Bipolar Weather | Geometric Shapes

Manning Up for the Bipolar Weather | Geometric Shapes

I love geometric pieces. They show off a sense of sophistication and edge. The hard lines make me think of a professional business woman while the colours and different dimensions of the shapes convey a creative image. They’ve been in season since winter but I haven’t been able to get my hands on the perfect piece until now.

Welcoming the Green | Parka & Houndstooth

Welcoming the Green | Parka & Houndstooth

The weather in Toronto has been wavering between fall and spring. It’s chilly in the morning, but warmer during the afternoon. Being a commuter student, I need to dress according to both climates because if I leave the house in the morning, it’s already afternoon by the time I get to school. Having versatile jackets is a pretty high priority in my books.

Fur-reals It's Cold | Faux Fur Vest Fashion

As I am writing this, the weather outside is treacherous. You think you can walk outside for 10 minutes and suck it up, but no, that’s not the case. The first few breaths you breathe in instantly form icicles inside your nose. I guess that’s what I get for living in the GTA with -30’C weather. The funny thing is, Toronto is a lot closer to lakes, but also a lot warmer in climate than my city. I guess having a lot of buildings pays off in the winter. Well, regardless of the weather, I’m still going to run outside […]
