Exhibit: Therapy is Fun + Free at the Sanatorium!
Toronto Art + Culture Exhibition ReviewHeya! Last week I visited the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto to enjoy their newest exhibit Pedro Reyes: Sanatorium. This was the first time I visited this beautifully located museum, and after my initial visit, it will not be by last.

Explore Toronto: Strolling Through the Solar System While Enjoying the Many Charms of Toronto!
Walkable Planets Community Art Project ReviewThere are so many cool and interesting things to do and places to explore in Toronto. So many that even Torontonians don't know about them all or haven't visited them, like the Toronto Public Labyrinth. A great way to explore and learn about this amazing city is to take part in organized tours.
There are a lot of city and site specific tours that cost money, like The Steam Whistle Brewing Tour. But a unique and economical way to explore Toronto is to take advantage of one of the many free walking tours, both guided by volunteers or self-guided, organized by Jane's Walk. Jane's Walk was founded in Toronto by a group of friends and colleagues of Jane Jacobs, who "believed in walkable neighbourhoods, urban literacy, and cities planned for and by people." Jane's Walk organizes free locally led walking tours "in which people get together to explore, talk about, and celebrate their neighbourhoods" in over 100 cities across the globe. Please visit Jane's Walk to find out more information on walks around Toronto and other cities.

My Style: Chic, Sexy, + Fun!
Summer Fashion OutfitHeya! Crop tops and tees have been an ongoing fashion trend this season. They were quite popular last summer and can still be seen this year. And for those of us who don't have washboard abs or a flat tummy, trying to wear this trend can make us uncomfortable. But I've come up with two ways to rock the crop top without showing off the belly bump: over a long dress or with a high-waisted (or semi-high) skirt.

Exhibit: Infusion of Spanish Food + Design at the Design Exchange!
Food + Design Exhibition ReviewHeya! Last week I took the opportunity to visit the Design Exchange's newest cultural exhibit - Tapas: Spanish Design For Food. I would never call myself a 'foodie' and sometimes find myself eating just so I won' faint. But because I have enjoyed the last exhibit at the Design Exchange, This Is Not A Toy, I figured I give the Design Exchange's newest exhibit a try.

Haircare: Smooth & Shiny Hair with Matrix Biolage Exquisite Oil!
Hair Oil Treatment ReviewNow that Summer is in full swing, the hot air outside and from my hairdryer is making my hair extremely frizzy. So for the past few months, I have been using Matrix Biolage Exquisite Oil Replenishing Treatment and have noticed an amazing difference in the look and feel of hair. I received Matrix Biolage Exquisite Oil in my Spark Sessions swag bag, but forgot about it for months. I came across it during my annual spring cleaning of my makeup and beauty cabinet and thought I would give it a try.

My Style: Casual Boho!
Casual Fashion Outfit from ExpressHeya! My life has been extremely busy these past few weeks. Between trying to find a job and keeping up with my blog postings and events, I still had to plan and organize my sister's Bachelorette party last weekend, and entertain out of town guests and family. And with the weather warming up and the constant errands I'm running, I've been trying to keep my everyday style comfortable and chic. That's why I love these distressed jeans I bought from Express last year. I have been basically living in them. I like to pair a fun and trendy top with them, like this pink loose tank top, also from Express.

Exhibit: Fashioning the Intangible at TMC!
Toronto Art + Culture Textile Fashion Exhibition ReviewHeya! A few weeks ago I visited The Textile Museum of Canada's (TMC) newest exhibition Fashioning the Intangible: the conceptual clothing of Ying Gao. I loved TMC's Geisha to Diva exhibit, and after seeing previews of Fashioning the Intangible, I couldn't wait to see Gao's creations in person.

My Style: Two Faced Dress!
Express Reversible Dress Fashion OutfitHeya! I have been in love with a lot of the fashions available at Express lately. I usually only find very few pieces that I really want among the basic jeans, shirts, and trendy tops, but lately I have been obsessed with a lot of really cool finds like their zebra print skirt. My latest Express obsession is this fabulous reversible dress!

Exhibit: Par Amour + Over the Rainbow at MOCCA!
Two Toronto Culture + Art Exhibition ReviewsHeya! I always love visiting the Museum of Canadian Contemporary Art in Toronto. They always have some very interesting and unique art exhibits like Misled By Nature and Material Self. A few weeks ago I enjoyed MOCCA's latest two exhibits: Over the Rainbow: Identity and Seduction and Par Amour / Paramour. Both exhibitions were very interesting and are presented in partnership with World Pride Toronto.

Beauty: Buildable Colour that Sparkles from Revlon Colorstay Shadowlinks!
Eye Shadow Makeup ReviewHeya! Several weeks ago, I attended a Revlon beauty event, where I was given several Revlon makeup products to try at home. I loved the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Lip Stains and Revlon Colouburst Lip Balms, so I was excited to review the Revlon Colorstay Shadowlinks, a range of individual eye shadows that click (link) together to form your own customized colour palette. The colours I tried are Lime (satin finish), Plum (matte finish), Lilac (pearl finish), Moss (pearl finish), and Onyx (pearl finish).

Event: TOAE Takes Over Nathan Phillips Square!
Overview of Toronto Outdoor Art ExhibitionNathan Phillips Square, located just outside of Toronto City Hall, is normally home to just a few pieces of art, like Henry Moore's sculpture The Archer. But this weekend Nathan Phillips Square becomes home to the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition (TOAE): the first, largest, and longest running outdoor art fair in Toronto. This is a great event that I have only seen in passing and this year will be the first year that I will take the time to visit this amazing free outdoor art exhibition.

My Style: Zebra Print Lady!
Full Skirt Fashion OutfitHeya! One fashion trend I'm in love with right now is the full skirt! You can find a variety of styles and colours in almost every clothing store! I feel so pretty with the lady like silhouette and hem length of the full skirt. I feel like I'm ready for afternoon tea with royalty or just my little princess niece. And what's great about this trend is that it can easily transition into other seasons when paired with boots and tights.
