Haircare Review: Finding Zen with Orofluido Asia!

Orofluido Asia Haircare Review

There's a Japanese saying that "the beauty of her hair alone, can a woman captivate a man". Well if that's true, my hair needs a serious beauty makeover because I'm not captivating anyone right now, let alone someone from the opposite sex. And with the weather finally heating up, my hair is starting to frizz and expand. The warmer it gets outside, the bigger my thick hair gets. So when I arrived home from my vacation in February, to box filled with the Orofluido Asia haircare line, I was beyond happy.

Orofluido Asia claims 'exceptional frizz control, elasticity and smoothness.' And I'm hoping it will also help me to captivate a man....

Exhibit: Getting Wild at Gladstone Hotel!

Gladstone Hotel's Urban Wild Exhibition Review

I love the Gladstone Hotel. I've never actually stayed there overnight, but I am constantly visiting their amazing art exhibitions and fabulous events. A few weeks ago, I visited the Gladstone Hotel to see the Tim Burton Group Show Tribute in the 2nd Floor Gallery. While I was there, I also got the chance to see the Urban Wild exhibit in the 4th Floor Gallery.

It is always great to wander the halls of the Gladstone and enjoy some amazing, and usually free, art.

Exhibit: My Tim Burton Fix!

Gladstone Hotel's Tim Burton Group Show Tribute Exhibition Review

Like many, I tend to feel my regular daily routine is a little static after an amazing trip. I have been feeling a little lack-lustre since I got back from South America over a month ago. And when I get like this, a Tim Burton movie marathon can be the only cure. The fantastical films are so amazing that they can add a little pep in my step after watching them. But instead of wasting away in front of the T.V. on Sunday, I braved the cold weather and made my way to The Gladstone Hotel to get my Tim Burton fix at the free Tim Burton: A Group Show Tribute exhibition.

Exhibit: The Outsiders!

AGO's Outsiders: American Photography and Film, 1950s - 1980s Exhibition Review

People watching is one of my favourite past times, I think it's all the traveling I did when I was younger. I used to sit in the middle of a foreign city, grab a coffee and just watch the locals going about their daily lives and making up stories in my head about them (since I usually couldn't understand a single word they were saying:) Coming up with stories for your fellow passengers is also a great way to pass the time when waiting for yet another short turned streetcar here in Toronto. I think that's why I loved Outsiders: American Photography and Film 1950s -1980s so much.

The AGO has been celebrating The Year of Photography with special exhibitions and featured events since last summer. The celebration comes to a close soon but before it does, the AGO has two more photography exhibitions to show, including Outsiders, the largest photo exhibition since the AGO reopened in 2008.
