The Fairmont Hotels takes high tea very seriously. Having already experienced the full Fairmont high tea experience at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier (check it out here!), when the lovely ladies at the Fairmont Royal York asked us to their Holiday High Tea, we were there with jingle bells on our feet! We spent the day braving the Christmas crowds trying to get some shopping done and then headed over to the Royal York to rest our tired feet and enjoy a well deserved spot of festive tea.

There’s a new restaurant in the core and with over 100 beers on tap, it’s MASSIVE. Craft Beer Market is another wave of the west coast invasion of Toronto. It’s located at Yonge and Adelaide – smack in the middle of the downtown core. Before opening its doors to the rest of the city, Craft Beer Market invited Jess and I (and our friend, A!) to their raucous opening party to sample what’s on tap. Bring on the brewskies!
I have a low key obsession with interior design. I greedily devour any design magazine that I can get my hands on and half my insta feed these days is all about tablescapes, shelfies, and hygge. Although most of my obsession is purely virtual (living in a condo doesn’t exactly lend itself to DIYs and renos), I love a good wander around interior design stores. And nothing beats Restoration Hardware when it comes to dream decorating my perfect house, nothing. You can bet that as soon as a little bird told me about the new MASSIVE Restoration Hardware that opened up in Yorkdale complete with a CAFE, I rounded up the squad!
Jess and I haven’t treated ourselves to brunch out in a long time. Rather than being a homebody for yet another weekend, after running a few errands (wedding related yay!) we decided to debrief and catch up over brunch and we knew exactly where to go – Gusto 101.

Toronto has a handful of secret restaurants and bars, hidden places that require passwords, memberships or secret keys to get into. You might hear about these little gems from friends of friends or, if you’re lucky enough, you’ve visited these secret little spots. Oh you fancy. Let me tell you about Toronto’s other ‘secret’ bars. Those that aren’t plastered with advertising, relying only on reputation and word of mouth to attract a small but loyal clientele. Instead of memberships, you only need a sharp eye and an adventurous spirit to discover these (not so) secret bars.
Toronto is all about the #views. The best way to take in Toronto’s epic skyline is to get as high as possible. Jess and I have spent a lot of our summer ’17 on rooftops with a drink in our hands and we aren’t complaining – some of Toronto’s best bars aren’t on street level. With vibrant atmospheres and spectacular views going sky high is our new favourite way to while away our summer evenings. I thought I’d give you guys the low down on our fav rooftop bars in the city. We’ve scouted out places bring the AMBIENCE and the VIEWS – perfect for your next night out!
Can anybody say, cheap street eats? Cheap, loud, and hella fun. If you’re looking for somewhere to knock back drinks on the dime and on an awesome patio? You’ve found the spot. This is my kind of dive bar. Brought to you by the same gents behind El Furniture Warehouse and Queen Street Warehouse, I knew that the Dime on Queen would satisfy all my thrifty millennial needs.
Toronto is food festival wonderland during the summer. From brunch to tacos to wine, Toronto can’t get enough of small bites out in the sunshine. We’ve already shared our top list of the best bang for your buck summer food festivals this year.

Luckily, the weather held out for most of the day too. Taste of Toronto is truly a Foodie Paradise, practically bursting at the seams with Toronto’s greatest and newest restaurants – all in one place!
