Hello Loves!

If you are ever in ‘TDOT’ you need to check out Lavelle. Situated on the roof of 627 King St W this uber sexy french restaurant offers panoramic views of the city in a chic yet cozy environment.

Sameer (@playingwithapparelmen) and I went to go check it out a couple of weeks ago for a classic Sunday brunch. We were seated next to a floor to ceiling window which offered a perfect view of the iconic CN Tower. Of course I took about a million selfies and Instastories… who wouldn’t. Sameer enjoyed what looked like a delicious eggs benny (he didn’t share so I can’t be sure), while I ordered their pancakes with a side of avocado. Now let me just chat about these gosh darn pancakes, I mean firstly, they were SO GOOD but this was a STACK! There was absolutely no way I could finish them all but boy did I have fun trying.

After our feast we took a quick tour of the restaurant checking out their bar area and their outdoor pool! I will most certainly be back in the summer in my itty bitty bikini. I will also be back next week to demolish those pancakes!

Hello Loves!

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be an Instagrammer in Toronto? Recently four amazing local bloggers and myself had the honour of chatting with Toronto Life’s fabulous Annisha Lashland about just that. She got to the nitty gritty about what it’s like to make a living on Instagram. I won’t give the article away by talking more, but you can check out the full report by clicking HERE.

I feel so privileged to be apart of this with some of my fav bloggers.

Hello Loves,

I am a little nervous for this posting. I am not really one to show off my body…heck I go to nightclubs in turtlenecks… so I must admit, the images below have been altered to hide my dreadful cellulite and various other body issues in order to give myself a much needed boost of confidence. However, I couldn’t let Valentine’s day pass without showing you some of the pretty little things that Canadian based Azura Bay has to offer.

You will have heard me talking about Azura Bay in previous blog posts. I have mentioned their incredible swimsuit collection and cozy PJ line, but there is still so much more that Azura Bay has to offer…

As a proud member of the itty bitty titty committee, shopping for lingerie online is normally a no go… I would order bras just to be upset when they arrived to0 big! No ones body shape is the same and lingerie companies need to start understanding and celebrating that fact. Azura Bay has done just that, they have refuelled my trust in online underwear shopping with their wide variety of sizes and styles.

I am also thrilled by the fact that Azura Bay is an ethical and Eco-friendly company… which is perfect for me. As you may recall I am trying so desperately hard to reduce my carbon footprint and become more sustainable. All of their lingerie, swim and lounge wear are ethically produced and sweatshop free, and most products are made with Eco-friendly materials. Even their packaging is recycled and biodegradable. If that wasn’t fab enough, for every purchase made, Azura Bay will donate a portion of the proceeds to 1 of 3 organizations… of your choice!!

As a little thank you for all your support Azura Bay is offering 15% off any regular priced items (including new collection) when you use the discount code FJ15

So girls it’s time to start telling your partner that this Valentines day you want Azura Bay!

Hello Loves!

It’s Superbowl this Sunday and I am so gosh darn excited! Do I know anything about football? NOPE, do I know whose playing? Absolutely NOT, but heck.. who cares!

I’m normally in Cleveland during Superbowl time (don’t ask me why, it’s a long story) and if there is anything they have taught me about Superbowl it would be 1. Americans get waaay better commercials than us Canadians 2. Superbowl is a lot more entertaining when your drunk … and 3. make sure you wear something comfortable and stretchy because BOY are you going to eat!!

This years Superbowl outfit is actually kind of a fluke. I was browsing around Forever 21 the other day when I stumbled across a pair of soft ‘cashmere’ sweatpants, they have a fab lace up crotch that reminds me of a football. Perfect! They are also a great addition to my ever growing sweatpant collection (I can’t get enough of them). Plus they can be styled in so many different ways. However, for this Superbowl Sunday they will be worn with an oversized t-shirt and a pair of cozy slippers.

Hello Loves!

Well guys, it’s that magical time of the year when each weekend the people of the city escape to the ‘mountains’ up north. As I am an avid skier… ok lies… I don’t ski at all, but I do have a family condo on the hills of Blue Mountain, so while my friends and family hit the slopes, I search for brunch.

Last weekend while avoiding the peer pressure of wrapping up in layers upon layers and throwing myself down a mountain on two planks… Sameer (@playingwithapparelmen) and I decided to wander the streets of Collingwood where we stumbled across a perfect little brunch spot. Located one street over from the main Collingwood strip is Tremont Cafe. How did I not know this place existed?! I must be blind.

Tremont Cafe is a gorgeous fusion of Parisian chic and Canadian pride. They have an extensive brunch, lunch, and dinner menu, offering a variety of delicious eats and treats. All in a cozy and somewhat historic (as historic as Canada gets) building that was once surprisingly, a hotel for travellers.

So next time your up north and want to avoid having to endure the snow, or want to warm up after having to endure the snow… may I recommend Tremont Cafe for your culinary needs.
