Café Can Can

It only takes a glance at my Instagram account to know that one of my favourite pass times is scoping out new cute restaurants, bars and cafes.  I have travelled all over the world and always make a point to find at least one Instagram worthy interior wherever I am.  This task is definitely easier to accomplish in some places (ie. NYC, or Paris) than others.  I am really excited to see that Toronto is beginning to become more photogenic with photo-shoot worthy spots popping up in different neighbourhoods around the city.  I believe I discovered Café Can Can through…

Toronto’s Most Charming Cafés

I am one of those people who is absolutely useless before my morning cup of coffee.  It is one of my favourite things about the morning.  Such a comfort it is to have a hot cup of coffee in hand.  Especially when enjoyed inside a cute café & extra points if it comes in a beautifully designed mug.  I also love the culture around coffee.  Grabbing a cup with a friend, or hiding out in a café with other creative minds mid day.  My boyfriend and I will often grab coffee in the morning and then go for a walk…

Kitten & the Bear

Admittedly, I saw these beautiful Sloane takeaway cups on Instagram and this was my prime motivation to walk across the city to Parkdale.  I even went so far as to email Sloane Tea to ask them where in the city the cups could be found!  Being a downtown dweller, I’m not one to venture too far out of my box in Toronto: bordered by Bloor Street, Yonge Street and Ossington is the furthest west I usually desire to go.  So you know I really wanted one of these gorgeous cups if I was willing to walk all the way to…

Oretta

I have long complained of Toronto lacking in pretty restaurants.  Though not a huge foodie, I love going out for brunch, especially if the decor is charming and unique.  I have always been guilty of judging my books by their covers, I guess I’m just a visual person.  I first saw Oretta on Instagram, with the pink wall with gold accents and velvety blue booths.  It is gorgeous inside.  I actually realized where it was while David and I were out for brunch at Brioche Dorée across the street, as the two story tall pink walls can be seen from…

Runnin’ Through the 6ix

As a lover of travel I am constantly looking forward to my next trip, my next adventure, my next getaway from home.  Though recently, I’ve been reflecting on the contrast between how I spend my time while travelling, versus at home.  I often don’t take advantage of my home and what it as to offer, or take for granted my surroundings.  My boyfriend has also recently moved away to work abroad, so I have a lot more free time and am trying to keep busy and see more of my girl friends to keep me out of the house.  This…
