Winter is coming…
The days are getting cooler, the leaves are changing colour… All just a reminder that in about two months, we’re going to be thrown face first into the bitter Canadian winter. The nights are getting colder and darkerÂ and that means more cosy nights spentÂ under a blanket binge watching Netflix *cough* BuffyÂ *cough*! It also means the changing leaves, autumn Starbucks hot drink flavours, and vampy, berry lips!Â Today, I’ve partnered with Fjallraven Canada to show you some of my autumn and winter essentials!
2016 TIFF Suite with beautyBOUTIQUE and Phyto Paris
Each year the air is filled with a bit more glitz and glamour as the Toronto International Film Festival rolls into town. You know what that means – big films, big stars, big hair, red carpets, red lipstick – the works! Last Thursday, Emily and I strolled down the trendy streets of King Street West, past the popular little bars and cafes with slinking queues full of beautiful people. We reached the beautiful Spoke Club, and were led up to a charming little showroom with some of our favourite brands. Various stations were set up for hair and makeup, as well as previews of new collections and holiday releases! I’m so excited to share our experience with you today – keep on reading for the deets…
A Day at the Getty
For the past four years, I have made the trek out to the beautiful and sunny state of California! The main purpose of my trip is to attend Anime Expo, but I usually like to stretch out my stay and fit in a bit of sight seeing here and there.
On the second day of our trip, we headed toÂ The Getty Museum. I remember seeing photos of the museum’s fantastic architectural design on tumblr and longed to visit… now I can finally cross it off my bucket list! The gallery itself houses many iconic works and sculptures by the likes ofÂ Van GoghÂ andÂ Cezanne, as well as impressive gardens and a breathtaking view of the city below.
Admission is free, and there is a small tram that transports visitors from the lower parking area to the upper galleria and museum.
