PUMA En Pointe & New York City Ballet

Last Saturday I was invited by a collaboration between PUMA and Sportcheck to workout with two New York City Ballet dancers.   A group of us gathered at Toronto’s Extension Room,  a lovely airy and white washed dance studio near the Distillery District at 8am to try out the PUMA En Pointe collection.  PUMA En Pointe is a new collection inspired by dance, both in aesthetic, with soft pink and satin bows, as well as in practical use, with shoes with flexible soles and soft uppers to allow for articulation of the foot, a very important aspect of dance, particularly ballet.

High Park Cherry Blossoms

We are currently experiencing peak cherry blossom season in Toronto.  We are lucky to have cherry trees all over our city and last year I went to visit the trees in Trinity Bellwoods (pictures from Bellwoods HERE).  I can’t believe that all these years I have never been to see the beautiful fairytale that is High Park during when the cherry blossoms are in bloom.  There is such a small window of time that the blossoms are present  and there is actually a webpage dedicated to tracking the High Park cherry blossoms and will tell you when peak bloom is!…

The 15 Most Instagrammable Spots in NYC

It’s been a year to the week that my boyfriend David moved to New York City on a project.  With the current situation being that there is snow on the ground in April in Toronto it’s safe to say I am horribly nostalgic for New York City summer (something I have not been shy to wax poetically about on Instagram stories).  I fell absolutely head over heels for New York while flying back and forth all last summer and I am dying to go back.  As I don’t have any current travel plans to go there, I’ve decided to make…

How I Plan My Trips

The enjoyment I receive from travelling begins even before I set foot off an airplane in destination.  I have always been a bit of a dreamer and immerse myself on a daily basis into travel day dreaming.  When I plan a vacation somewhere, I want to get in as much as possible of that destination on my trip.  I have a long list of places I want to visit in my lifetime and I may not have the opportunity to revisit some destinations, so I want to be as thorough as possible.  I wanted to share with you today my…
