I know I said I was back and then I disappeared for a bit. I was in Toronto with my boyfriend, Frazer, for his dad's wedding. I had planned to blog from there but to be honest I was too busy having too much fun! Here is the kicker...I had never been to Toronto before! Isn't that crazy? I have traveled the world, lived in Hong Kong and Tokyo, but had never been to Toronto. Well it was love at first sight! Don't get me wrong I love Vancouver but sometime for me it is too small. I needed a bit of bigger city living.

And I got it.

I don't know if I am the only one but before I leave I like to spread all of the clothes I plan on taking out on my bed and make sure I have outfits, not just pieces. I used to be a horrible over packer and I am trying to tame that with some planning. That being said I did take 7 pairs of shoes...for 6 days. (Side note: I wore all of them!) So maybe next time less shoes...

First night we checked in to the hotel and then grabbed some dinner before drinks in our little private lobby. This place was amazing.

The bar at our hotel. It works on the honor system!

Day two it was off to the spa for a day of pre wedding pampering with the bride and my boyfriend's sister. It was wonderful. I never go to the spa and let me tell you the massage was RELAXING!

After the spa it was off to city hall for the ceremony and then back to the hotel for a fabulous reception. Honestly it was an amazing wedding. The bride and groom look so happy and all the family and friends had a blast toasting the new couple. After dinner the whole thing moved over to a nightclub for some dancing and cocktails. We finally got home around 3:30 in the morning. Totally worth it.

How beautiful is her dress??


Frazer and I in our wedding best.
The day after the wedding we moved out of the hotel and into the bride's apartment. They didn't need it anymore, they were off to Paris! But more importantly we met up with our friend, P!! She recently moved to Toronto for work and I love that she is chasing her dreams...making them happen really. The three of us got together had some drinks and a lot of laughs. It was a lot of fun!

We also went to a Raptors game Saturday night. Last time I went to a NBA game was when Vancouver had the Grizzles. So its been awhile. It was fun but the weird thing I noticed was almost no one was wearing a jersey, or the team colours and after having been to a few Canucks games I found it so strange. We have so many people in jersey and at least in the team colours at our games.

The next day we walked all over town and hit up the Kensington Market for some vintage shopping. I got a leather jacket, a badass tshirt with Heidi Klum giving the finger one it, and a dress. All for under $100! Love it!

Oh and Frazer got this badass ring!

UM...they have a SHOE museum!
Big chair...tiny person

The next day we hit up the ROM, Royal Ontario Museum. They were having a dinosaur exhibit and a fashion exhibit! I was stoked. Two of my favourite things!! I got a bunch of dinosaur photos but was unable to take any of the fashion, no camera allowed. Sorry. 

It was a great trip and I would love to again...and will go again. Watch out Toronto you haven't seen the last of me!!
