Lattes, Sunshine, and a total Buzzkill

Book Reviews, Just for Fun, Lifestyle/Personal, Restaurant Reviews, Toronto Adventures

Self-imposed stress can do some wonderful things to your complexion and even give you that sexy eye-twitch you’ve always wanted. Yes, that was sarcasm but a trip downtown Toronto on a beautiful Fall day may be the cure for all that ails you.

You may have read about my trip to Kensington Market on Vintage Living Magazine but there are a few things that I forgot to mention. For starters, everyone in Kensington Market is so youthful, friendly, and accommodating – they even overlooked theĀ i’m-a-small-town-girlĀ sign that looms un-auspiciously over my head. The shops and cafes are divine and for a place that doesn’t have a lot of garbage cans or recycling bins, it’s exceptionally clean (gosh I’m such a priss).

I thoroughly enjoyed my Tuesday downtown and even learned a few things…

  • A skinny, half-sweet pumpkin spice latte is the best thing about Fall – apart from scarves, sweaters, ankle boots, and watching the leaves turn fifty shades of red.
  • Popping into a restaurant you’ve never heard of IS a great idea.

  • Your taste buds will give you a round of applause when you try something new – even if you look silly for eating with a fork instead of chopsticks.

  • Finally, bees that won’t leave you alone when you’re trying to enjoy a wonderful meal on a patio are a total buzzkill! But don’t let that get you down!

Smile, bee happy, and move your meal inside before you get stung!

Love Always
