The Toronto Public Library Party

The Toronto Public Library is the largest urban public library system in the world. With 100 branches, TPL saw over 18 million visits in 2016. How epic is that?! Not only is a it a huge system, but it is also an important role that The Toronto Public Library plays within the city. In addition to all the wonderful books, Toronto Public Library offers free internet, videos, music, classes, exhibits and even access to virtual reality equipment! By providing equal access to these wonderful resources, both traditional and digital, the TPL has a wonderfully positive impact on our community. Plus, they throw epic parties in the library, but more on that soon.

A Day at Moonshine Juicery

I recently had the opportunity to spend a beautiful day at Moonshine Juicery in Waterloo about two hours outside of Toronto. It was a wonderfully welcome escape amidst the craziness of fashion week, as well as a day to focus entirely on mental and physical wellbeing. As someone whose brain is running five hundred miles per hour (to the point where I’ve made myself physically ill), these pauses to focus inward are both necessary and important. From the moment I arrived at Moonshine, I felt calmer than I had in a long time. By the end of the day, I was refreshed and inspired….and all that after only about five hours. Follow along as I take you through my day of wellbeing with Moonshine Juicery.

Dreamy Dining During TIFF

Ricarda’s, located in the super pretty Entertainment One building on the corner of Peter and Richmond streets, might be the prettiest place in the neighborhood. The dinner itself was delish and I’ll get into more detail in a moment, but first I’d like to mention the neat story of how Ricarda’s came to be. What is a true project of passion, Ricarda’s is named after the owner’s wife and business partner. With the dream of creating a dining and lifestyle experience that’s perfect from morning to night, the couple embarked on a journey to fulfill their vision in a restaurant rich part of Toronto, the entertainment district. Although it has undoubtedly been hard, their passion and devotion to this venture has resulted in a truly wonderful dining experience only one year after opening.
