NESCAFÉ Coffee Taproom on Queen West

I’ve been here a few months now and I’m super stoked about my new life in Toronto, but I’m embarrassed to admit that my all-too-particular boyfriend and I are still searching for the perfect furniture additions to our condo (lol). If you have any recommendations, please send them my way! Because of the indecisiveness, our living area is pretty sparse, and I regularly have to dart out in search of more work-friendly or comfortable places where I can sit down and get all that computer work done. Luckily, Nescafé has opened up their take on the ideal cafe space just a few hundred metres from home. To top it off, my definition of the perfect spot is exactly the same as their’s because it’s virtually Instagram heaven (winning).


Rope For Hope | Make-A-Wish

I loved to daydream as a kid (and still often do), so I find the notion of the Make-A-Wish foundation granting the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions truly inspiring. To add yet another wonderful twist to an already inspiring cause, Make-A-Wish has created the Rope For Hope fundraiser in which people rapel down tall buildings across the country to raise money for their “Wish Kids”, allowing them to grant 100% of all wishes. Last year, Toronto and Central Ontario raised over $360,000 towards the national goal of $1.6 million. This year, participants will be rapelling down 30 stories of Toronto’s City Hall (my fave building) with the hopes of raising even more money than last year! So fun!


Getting Ready for The Power Ball | The Power Plant Toronto

This coming Thursday, June 1st is the 19th inception of The Power Ball, a fundraising event that raises vital funds for the Power Plant, Canada’s leading non-collecting, contemporary visual art gallery. In 1980 this gallery moved to its current location on the Toronto waterfront, inside a decommissioned coal power plant, and has since become not only a visual landmark of the city, but a cultural one too. With many programs providing education to children and youth, as well as investing in contemporary visual artists, the Power Plant has become an institution in Toronto.
