Explore Toronto: Living On The Edge at the CN Tower!

CN Tower Edge Walk Experience Review

I love exploring and seeing Toronto in a different light. Whether it's vising unique hidden gems in the city, like a new public art installation, or getting acquainted with a beautiful old park or neighbourhood, I'm always surprised at how much Toronto has to offer.

Now that is had been a few months since the ending of the Douglas Coupland invasion of Toronto with two major exhibitions at MOCCA and the ROM, you might be going through Coupland withdrawal. Don't fret, I've got you covered!

There are so many amazing pubic art installations in Toronto, especially downtown. A while back I had the opportunity to join a walking art tour organized by MOCCA, and tour a small part of Toronto and learn about some of Douglas Coupland's amazing art displayed for all to see!

P.s!: Some Sun & Fun!

June Blog Roundup & July Preview

It's already a few days into July, so this post is a little late. It's just been such a busy few weeks! July has started off with a bang thanks to Canada Day on July 1st and the start of The Toronto Fringe Festival! I have been working with Loose Leaf Theatre Company who debuts their amazing play Me With You at Fringe, and I'm so excited to be apart of such an amazing show. If you haven't seen it, there are still four shows left. And if you haven't been to Fringe before, you should definitely check it out!

Some of my favourite moment s from June, has to be working and preparing for The Toronto Fringe Festival. I also found my new favourite fashion accessories store in Cabbagetown called Pipler Accessories. And I went to some amazing art exhibits featuring some amazing Canadian talent. And I finally got to relax a little and enjoy some quality time with friends and family.
