It’s been a while. Many, many things have happened in the last few months, including (in no particular order): moving, sock buns, fall, winter, new jobs, new year, manicures (duh!), birthdays, prints, Joe Zee, DIY.
Well I’m ready to get to regular programming. GFB was my original writing place and a way to keep inspiration, and I want it back. Please enjoy the below catch up sesh, and see you soon, I’ve got ideas in store.
I forgot to mention, I went to Chicago in April. The city definitely lives up to it’s title, our umbrellas had multiple near death experiences in the Windy City. Chicago has always been a city I’ve wanted to visit and so I can now check this one off my bucket list (which does not currently exist). Chicago is actually quite similar Toronto, other than the beautiful architecture. And so here is a brief photo diary of our adventures.
Loved the Bean (the Cloud Gate) in Millenium Park. Toronto needs something like this.
Not deep dish, but best pizza I’ve ever had, worth the wait Piece Pizza. Love the logo.
Fried chicken & waffles at The Red Canary.
Oh ya we also got BOTTOMLESS mimosas for $18. Best idea ever.
Wrigley Field, home of the Cubs.
We also went up the Sears Tower, which was a huge let down (maybe because it was raining). Who wants to see 4 states anyways?! Not even worth the $17, next time more mimosas. I’ll stick with the CN Tower.
Some other honourable mentions: Delilah’s – $2 Pabst Blue Ribbon (on Wednesdays, $3 otherwise) & $2 whiskey shots. HUB51 – waited 3 days to get a reservation, but the fish tacos were the tits (I Love You Man, anyone?). Rockit Bar & Grill – delicious burgers.
Despite the rain the city was in full Playoff mode (Bulls & Blackhawks), so there was always something going on. Our last day we shopped, and unfortunately & surprisingly for me, I only bought 2 nail lacquers and a pair of sunglasses from H&M, lame I know. Later we stopped by House of Blues where a local blues band was playing. Can’t get enough of the blues.
Though there were no Oprah, Lupe or Kanye hangouts, I’m quite fond of Chicago, and like I had predicted I could totally see myself living amongst the wind.
This Weekend song: Teach Me How To Dougie dance: Dougie mission: learn how to Dougie.
So our newest thing is to have pre-drink dance workouts. I mean you may as well be ahead of the game, and work off the drinks before the bar right? This weekend we decided to master the Dougie. Let me tell you this takes a lot of practice and technical ability. We probably practiced for an hour on Friday night, but now we pros. I also thought wearing my high-tops would heighten my Dougie skills, FACT.
I once knew a girl…her name was Olga and she was from Russia!

Saturday night we had a party to celebrate our new condo and us finally being roommates. We called it our Barbie Dream Home. Many beverages were consumed, cupcakes were made and personalized and all in all it was lovely.
My mission of the night was to make #freeweezy a trending Twitter topic…better luck next time. A second mission was to cover everyone in the sparkles that fell off my dress like fairy dust. It was $10 from H&M, and looked like dance recital costume material. Kayla wore a new little Urban number.
We should do this more often.
I’m currently in Vancouver, having a mini holiday before I start my real life, i.e. I become a working girl. I used to live in Whistler back in the day, and now my cousin who I lived with lives in Van. I’ve forgotten how much I miss the mountains, and I’ve never really realized how different Van and Toronto are style wise. Hello Lululemon and running shoes, kind of an odd sighting since no one in Queen West would be caught dead wearing running shoes unless they just left the gym. Here are some pictures from yesterday in Kitsilano.
Blazer – Club Monaco, Top – H&M, Leggings – Lululemon, Canvas Shoes – Wal-Mart, Purse – H&M
Favourites of Vancouver: Noodle Box, Kits, The Eatery Sushi, Earls, Mountains, Beach, Robson Shopping
It’s pretty sad when you finally become too old to be visited by the Easter Bunny. Just last year I had my last easter egg hunt, at the age of 21, with my younger sister (18) and my little cousin (4). This year, I’m the only one home for the long weekend and my mom refused to hide eggs for me…I guess I’ll just go devour my GIANT bag of mini eggs instead.
