PHOTO DIARY | TO Xmas Market

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock. Jingle bells swing and jingle bells sing ...
... What a bright time, it's the right time to rock the night away

It's the last weekend of November. Who's ready for Christmas season?? Because I am! Last night was the opening night of Toronto Christmas Market at the Distillery District (55 Mill Street). I've heard of this three-week long festivity since it started back in 2010 and I've always wanted to go. It was my first time and I was very excited because people have been saying so many positive reviews about it. AND THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. I headed there pretty early - probably around 3pm - to take photos before it gets dark and crowded with people. As night time comes, it was like the place was transformed (or maybe we got transported, who know) into a magical realm. Christmas lights were on. Families, friends, and lovers were all over checking out local artisan shops, craft beers, handmade gifts, and of course.. FOOD.

REVIEW | Doll Face Spa

I was invited to sample the services at Doll Face Spa by Melissa from Charming Media and opted to try their Advanced Facial. This treatment is for clients that are looking for that much-needed relaxation. It covers everything from the basic facial treatment, including pore extraction, as well as a facial mask and a collagen-boosting massage. This treatment requires a well-deserved break of 60-minutes.

It's All Scribbles

Have you heard of the origami skirt before? I thought they'd be an interesting piece to add to your wardrobe. Such a playful twist to a regular skirt. However, in this case, it's actually a pair of shorts. So.. a SKORT ! What struck me at first sight was its eye-catching print. Kind of reminds me of a seabed or something like that. I had no idea what to coordinate it with when I put it in my shopping bag. "Whatever. I'd figure it out once I decide to wear it," I said to myself.

I kept it fairly simple by wearing a light grey cropped long sleeve. When in doubt, go with neutrals.

D&B Holiday Menu Launch

***WARNING*** For all of you carefully watching their weight, step away now before it's too late.

Your time is up! Brace yourself because you will be entering the holiday sweets heaven ;) I had the opportunity to preview Desmond & Beatrice's holiday menu launch. Since I discovered this little gem on Queen Street East, they have been my go-to place for treats and give out as gifts. Cause who doesn't love cupcakes and pastries, right? The event was held at the 2nd Floor Events (461 King St W).

REVIEW | Evil Dead - The Musical

It was the night of the living dead.

The best way to spend Halloween.. Evil Dead - The Musical is back in Toronto for a limited encore engagement! This hilarious live stage show takes all the elements of the cult classic horror films, "Evil Dead", "Evil Dead 2" and "Army of Darkness", then combines them to make one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time. Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into Candarian demons. It's all up to Ash (a house ware employee, turned demon-killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons are telling bad jokes... and all to music.
