Siena is often overlooked. Nestled between the two powerhouse Italian cities, Florence and Rome, unless Siena is specifically on your travel itinerary, it’s easy to whiz by on the A1 onto bigger cities. But with plenty to see and plenty more places to eat, our Tuscan road trip through the Val d’Orcia (think endless rolling hills of green, tall cyprus trees and fields of wheat) started off in medieval Siena. All you need is a car, a map and your best sense of adventure!
Have you heard? TIFF is in town which means that Toronto turns into a bit of a circus for a week or so. King St. shuts down, actors and actresses flock to the City’s hotspots, and tourists follow in their wake clogging up the streets and walking super slow. On the bright side, TIFF parties are legendary, I mean, who doesn’t want to get glammed up and rub shoulders with the stars? Sign us up!
On Thursday night people from all corners of the city flocked to secret meeting points. Some were holding tables and chairs, others had flowers in their hair and long party dresses on – but all were dressed from head to toe in white. Did you see them on your way home and wonder where all those fanciful folks were off to? Well, I’ll let you in on the secret: The very secretive, and very exclusive Diner En Blanc. Jessica and I raced from work, throwing on white outfits to join in on the fun.
It’s officially wedding season! If you’re like me, you started planning out what to wear to all of the events you have on your calendar ages ago. Hair, makeup, nails, shoes, accessories needs to be on point. And that doesn’t even start to cover the most important bit (other than the bride and groom of course) – your outfit! When you’re spending up to $800(!!!) per wedding (seriously, they did a study), splurging on a new outfit for each wedding is RIDICULOUS. Ladies, how many dresses do you have hanging in your closet that you bought for a wedding and wore all of one time? I have 5…from LAST year alone. If you feel our pain, we’ve got good news! Jess and I want to share a magical place where you can shop a closet so full of designer labels Carrie Bradshaw cry tears of happiness and literally everything is in your price range. Studio Fitzroy – welcome to the future of fashion in Toronto – dress rentals.
Sports! Toronto loves its sports teams, and thats right, the boys of summer are back and already well into their 2017 season. We don’t just bleed blue and white in the winter. There is nothing like experiencing a sports game in person. Despite the rough start (looking at you Jays), rollercoaster rides (Leafs… you’re guilty!) and let downs (Raps, I can’t take your playoff runs no ‘mo) there is nothing like experiencing a sports game in person. There’s a few things that you should know before taking in a game at the SkyDome- er, Rogers Center this summer… but the bottom line? You must!
No trip to Orlando is complete without a visit to the happiest place on Earth! Disney World in May is hot hot hot. The temperature soared to 36C (97F for the yanks!) and the sun was stronger than anything we get in Toronto. Comfort and style are the two key ingredients when it comes to planning a Disney World outfit. Jessica and I kept our outfits basic but we made sure we had a few twists to keep things on trend and super cute.
December 31st 2016: New YEAR, New YOU!
January 6th 2017: New Year, Old Routine
So, how is that New Year, New You fitness pledge going? Or, has it even begun?
Whether you are dolling up for a glamorous dinner and dance, bringing out your wild side at a club, or keeping it casual with a wine and cheese party at home, picking a New Years Ever outfit shouldn’t be stressful! But, let’s be honest, after the holiday 10 pounds we gained post-Christmas, it can be tough to find the outfit.
