After what felt like the longest school year ever, classes are finally done! This means that I can freely spend my weekdays galavanting and enjoying everything that Toronto has to offer. This also means that I can stop dressing like I only own one hoodie and one pair of pants. Continue reading “Fun pants for a guaranteed fun day”
Last week, my university had our reading week. While a lot of my friends were jetting off to really cool places, I was stuck in Toronto working. Usually, this would make me very sad, but we had such amazing weather this past week that I couldn’t complain. I made the most of my week free of classes , and did what Torontonians do best – brunch! I went to 4 different brunch places over the course of the week. It was totally unplanned, but I’m quite pleased with my decisions. In addition to all the brunching, I spent a lot of my time in Kensington market (pictures after the brunch pics). I never get tired of looking at all the cool knick knacks in the little shops, and just sitting in pretty coffee shops. All in all, it was a great week, and even though I stayed in the city, I still felt like I was on a vacation. Continue reading “Toronto Staycation: Brunch + Kensington Market”
Last week was chock-full of exploration, and trying new things. From new lunch spots to new books, I’ve definitely discovered some fresh favourites. Here is my list of things that I have fallen in love with in the past week.
I am absolutely head over heals in love with Whiskey Words & a Shovel II by R.H. Sin. It is a stunning book of poetry about life, love, loss, and leaving. Sin’s writing is raw and honest. After reading every poem in the book, I feel like I’ve just read someone’s diary and I’ve become a better person because of it. There are poems in the book that resonated with me more than others, and “Good Vibes Only” really struck a chord with me.
Let’s Dance to Joy Division – The Wombats
I rediscovered this song while going through videos I had saved from Bestival last month. It is such a catchy song that I have had it stuck in my head the entire week. I’m definitely down to dance to The Wombats any day!
Mountain At My Gates (Alex Metric Remix) – Foals
This is a brand new remix to the song by Foals. It has such a great vibe to it. The song manages to be upbeat while having an ambient charm to it. This is something that I would love to listen to on a summer night. Pure bliss!
I’ve been craving pizza a lot lately, so naturally I indulged in my cravings. I decided to try out a place I’ve never been to and I really enjoyed it. If you are in Toronto and looking to get some bomb tasting pizza, definitely try out Sud Forno if you haven’t already. They even have a cute patio!
Rompers! It has been insanely hot in Toronto lately, so lightweight rompers have been my best friend. They just make getting dressed so easy because all you have to do is throw it on and voila! you’re dressed. The romper I am wearing in the photos is from H&M.
There you have it, folks, all my favourites from last week! xx
