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.
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 […]
Now that I’m finally graduated from school, it’s time to venture out into the real world and be a full fledged adult. I have to admit, I’m not ready yet because I want to enjoy my years travelling around the world. I just feel like I’m not ready to be tied down to a 9 to 5 job with only two weeks of vacation. I’m not satisfied. Unfortunately, I will eventually have to get a job and move out, so transitioning into business style is just the start. I know for a fact that when I find a job, I […]
SPRING IS IN THE AIR. You can feel it in the atmosphere when you walk out. It’s just creeping it’s way around. But how do you pack for this weather? For the past two weeks I’ve been staying at a friend’s place and trying to plan ahead and packing light is so hard! I mean- basic make up, bath essentials, and school things take up half my duffel bag… So where do my clothes go?! I really had to pack light for each week, but still be able to accommodate this awkward weather. I must say, it was a real […]
Spring weather has been coming and going recently. It’s literally like a tease. One day it’s 2’C, another day it’s -7’C. Sometimes it even starts at -7’C and becomes 5’C in the afternoon. So obviously, picking out what to wear is the biggest confusion for me. When the weather is bipolar, all I want to do is be laid back and stay in bed. The stress of having to choose attire that I won’t regret is too much. Luckily, crop tops are so versatile. You can literally style it for all 4 seasons and still look weather sensible. Crop tops should […]
Today was a warm day. In fact, this whole week has been warm, averaging about 2’C. Thinking about it, that’s actually pretty sad that we Canadians are calling it ‘nice’ weather when in comparison to summer or real spring weather, it’s quite ‘cold’. Well, I’m not complaining. I’m happy that the snow is melting and I can chuck my big winter jacket to the back of my closet. No more bulkiness, yay! This weather is actually perfect for layering a variety of textures without feeling too cold or too hot. When my houndstooth skirt first came in the mail, I thought I […]
This is actually the first jumper I’ve ever owned and worn out. I always admired fashion bloggers who strutted down roads in their long jumpers. I always associated the piece with tall, slim people. I always stayed away because I felt intimidated being 5’0. I thought I would look even shorter, frumpy, and just plain awkward. Just imagine a little woman with her crotch hanging low, sleeves falling off, and pants dragging 6 inches behind her. That was what I though I would look like. But, I finally collected some courage to purchase my first jumper. And it definitely does […]
I just have to say, that the lengths that we Canadian Youtubers go through to take nice videos or pictures, is quite extensive. In this season, the main problem is trying not to freeze our limbs outside in the cold. The weather was probably -22’C this day, and I don’t even want to think about it. But for nice lighting and dynamic backgrounds, I guess I can suck it up. I do love how frosty these photos look though. Did I pretend that I wasn’t freezing well?
