Apart from my birthday and Thanksgiving, the best part about fall in my opinion is definitely the layers. Some of my friends say fall is their favourite season, but for me, the nostalgia of summer creeps up just three weeks into my fall bliss, and soon after I’m wishing it were a balmy 28 degrees out again. While in California, post-Coachella, this year my love for Free People continued to grow as I found this perfect summer knit, which is easily translated to fall and winter with a few extra layers.
for those of you who don’t live in Toronto, or just haven’t noticed, the CN Tower lights up gold when Canada wins a gold medal. so thus far it’s been 4 times…hoping to see more golden skies soon.
in other celebration of winning gold, Air Canada has special one-day-only discounts! on Feb 14th flights were 15% off and on Feb 16th 20% off. i’m not sure if the promo continued with yesterday’s win, but i’m predicting that the discount price will not continue to increase (because Air Canada is selfish and cheap), or that Air Canada doesn’t have much hope in the Canadian team, and figures 20-25% off is the most they will have to offer.
well it is a sad day for us Torontonians (if i am even really considered one). for years we have held onto this title, and could use this big/little fact as a way to place ourselves on the map against other more cultured and pretty foreign cities… but now it is gone.
the Burj Dubai, is now the tallest building in the world, standing at 800+ meters high! our poor little CN Tower has now fallen short by 247 meters. for some reason boasting to others that my city has the 2nd tallest structure in the world, doesn’t really strike much appeal…i guess size really does matter.
and all around Toronto egos are being crushed, one meter at a time…
