Gusto 101

Consistency is key, and I think the people over at Gusto 54 Restaurant Group must have clued into that a long time ago. They’re the restaurant group that owns neighbourhood staples, like Trattoria Nervosa (which just celebrated its 20th–yes 20th!–anniversary), Gusto 101, Pai Northern Thai Kitchen, Felix in Los Angeles, and soon to be opened Chubby’s Jamaican Kitchen and Gusto 501. I can’t tell you how excited I am that another Gusto location will be opening up in my hood at 501 King St. E.! While I’ve seen many restaurants come and go in the King West, Toronto neighbourhood, Gusto 101 (located at 101 Portland St.) has been around…

Celebrating Our Engagement

My fiancé, Alex, proposed to me on December 12, 2015 and it was magical! Whenever people ask me how he proposed, I always ask them how much time they have to listen to the story! I’m truly not exaggerating when I tell you that our proposal was like something out of a movie! Alex pulled out all the stops by planning an entire day full of surprises, including asking me to marry him with 4 framed pictures in an art gallery, a surprise lunch with our friends, dinner at my favourite restaurant, and a helicopter ride around Toronto! We were lucky enough…

Bailey Nelson

Who ever said premium glasses had to cost a fortune?! The wonderful people at Bailey Nelson aspire to bring everyone the same quality glasses and sunglasses as all the luxury brands at a fraction of the cost, and I appreciate that! They started in Australia in 2012, and they now have locations all across Australia, New Zealand and the UK, and a total of 6 stores across Canada, including Vancouver, Ottawa, and Toronto. Breaking away from the same supply chain that other designers use and thus saving you all the mark-ups, Bailey Nelson manufactures their glasses using quality materials and craftsmanship. They’re striving to change the glasses industry and…

Day Off

Have you ever taken a day off to just explore and be a tourist in your own city? I think it’s not only important to do that every once in a while to have fun, but I’ve also felt the necessity of doing that more so in the last 6-8 months (when I’ve had to deal with the additional pressure of blogging while maintaining a full-time job). I normally use my vacation days for actual trips, but since my fiancé and I are saving for our wedding and therefore not travelling much this year, I figured I might as well put my vacation days to good use…

True True Love

There’s no truer love than my love for pizza – *cough* – I mean, my fiancé. While Alex may be my real true love, pizza honestly comes in at a close second. You could say it’s got a pizza my heart 😉 We recently had the pleasure of dining at True True, a fast-casual pizza joint that opened in February of this year. Located at 169 King St. E., dare I say, it may very well one of the best pizza places in the St. Lawrence/King East/Corktown neighbourhood! Lucky for us, that also happens to be the neighbourhood we live in! Even though we’ve walked…

Windy City Travel Guide

It’s long overdue, but I’m pretty excited to be posting my very first travel guide! It’s kind of ironic that this is my first, considering travel is one of my passions. On average, I take at least one, but often times two, big trips per year. But, with all the developments over the last 6-8 months, like getting engaged and now saving for our wedding, my fiancé and I have barely traveled for the year. Apart from this trip to Chicago, we don’t have any other travel plans on the horizon until next year (which makes me really sad). My fiancé had the opportunity to…

Twirl

Twirl. That’s all I want to do when I wear this top! If you read my last style post, you would already know that I’m obsessed with frilly white tops, so this top from SheIn was the perfect addition to my ever-growing collection! I came across it while shopping online for more summer shirts, and I just had to have it (especially since it’s such a great price)! It makes quite the statement on its own, with its large, accentuated ruffles, that not much else is really needed. I’ve styled with a pair of treggings (which is not a made up word, btw) and lace-up high heels,…

No Frills

The name of this blog post is a bit of a misnomer because it’s actually about frills – a lot of them! As you may have noticed if you follow me on Instagram, I have a bit of an obsession with frilly tops (as seen here and here), and in particular, white frilly tops (more to come in my next style post). I also love off-the-shoulder tops, so this little number from Club Monaco is exactly my style. Speaking of Club Monaco, if you live in Toronto, have you had a chance to check out the Club Monaco Market at the Bloor St. W. location…

On the Fringe

There’s just something about warm, sunny weather and white jeans that go hand in hand! Despite having to be so extremely careful when wearing them, white jeans are one of my favourite things to put on in the spring and summer. I think they look so lovely on women. Fun fact: the first time my parents met, it was at a party. My mother was wearing white jeans and it was one of the things that caught my father’s eye and caused him to approach her. I guess it was love at first white (my parents will probably kill me for sharing this story!) But anyway, on to…

Low Tea Brunch – Thoroughbred Food & Drink

My fiancé, Alex, and I spend a lot of time together, in general, but lately, I’ve been going to a lot of food events and brunching with other Instagrammers on the weekend. So, I thought it would be a nice change of pace to go on a brunch date with just Alex, since one of our favourite things to do together is eat, after all! We’d been to Thoroughbred Food & Drink for dinner in the past and really enjoyed our meal. So, it’s always a bonus when a restaurant you already like has a brunch service, and best of all, takes resos!…
