Hey there – it’s been a while!
A few weeks ago I got invited to NEON Toronto on Queen Street in preparation for Spring! I had a wonderful shopping experience with really great customer service from the store staff. They were all so helpful and allowed me to run around pulling outfits and really maximizing the store space and decor for my photos.
NEON has been around for over 20 years in Quebec. They had a store in Toronto before relocating to a bigger space on Queen Street. I had such a fun time exploring all corners of the store and didn’t realize they carried so many brands like Levi’s, Billabong, Element, OBEY Clothing, Fjallraven and RayBan just to name a few.
Spring is always a great time to freshen up your wardrobe with a few new pieces. I went through the store and pulled out 4 spring looks to share with you before I chose my favourite one.
Layering is key when it comes to spring fashion. I kept the jean jacket as a staple piece with all 4 looks as spring is usually still quite chilly in Toronto and it’s necessary to keep a jacket around.
I’ve been thinking back to the first Toronto Flower Market this season in May – looking at all the beautiful flowers has me planning for the next one on August 20th! All the vendors bring a different style, selection and flare to the blooms and I’m telling you, it’s really tough to just choose one bouquet/kind! I love supporting local businesses and it’s right down Queen West so there are a ton of great restaurants and coffee shops there.
I LOVE workshops and DIY projects- it is always super reward for me when I make something on my own. In my 2016 Action Plan post last month, I mentioned some actions that I will take this year to bring more balance into my life and one of them was to take on more DIY projects and workshops so that it gets my creative juices going!
For years, My sister and I both use vegan soaps from Demo Soap, locally produced and based in Toronto Liberty Village. This past Christmas holiday we decided that we would take their Soap Making Workshop together and gift the soaps we make to our friends. It was such a creative experience and we had a ton of fun throughout the whole process! I have provided their contact information below if you would like to take up a workshop with them. It makes a cute date night, fun to do it with friends and family or even plan a small party there. The whole process took about 2 hours long and afterwards you wait about an hour or so to pick up the soaps. During that time, I would recommend going around Liberty Village to visit other stores or grab a bite at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen or School!

Hey guys! This past weekend, my sisters and I spent Saturday together exploring our lovely city Toronto. First stop, the Toronto Flower Market. It was our first time there and the local flowers were so beautiful! We bought some really pretty blooms, then we explored around Queen Street East before we decided to stop for brunch. We stumbled upon this cute resto called County General Riverside (nom nom nom)! Last stop, Edwards Gardens, it’s too beautiful for words! We had such an amazing weekend and hope you had a great one too.
