This week was a busy one. Not like ‘fake busy’, I mean I was full on running from one thing to the next every single day. I directed something Monday that was the 2nd day of shooting for a campaign. When we wrapped around 6pm, I went back to the 1188 office then over to RAINA+WILSON studio to celebrate the Globe Style Summer Issue.
It was only Monday but I was ready to wind down with a cocktail. Grey Goose was sponsoring and they had grapefruit juice, my fav. 416 Snack Bar was catering and the food was A+ too.
We were treated to a small private show by Calvin Love. The style issue comes out TODAY, Friday, June 12th. You can download it for FREE from iTunes right here.
Tuesday was rainy and my hair was a mess. I find it much easier to work and concentrate when it’s rainy out. When the sun is shining I wanna shut my computer and play outside.
You know what I mean?
I went to the Stage TEN office on Tuesday night for a live Pet Skills show. It’s the world’s first live, interactive, web show! I’ll be sharing more about my involvement with Stage TEN soon.
The lower East side of Toronto is quite pretty, especially driving over this bridge when the sun is setting. It was almost 8pm here.
The bridge says ‘This river I step in is not the river I stand in’. It means the water is always changing, no river is ever the same. Think about it. Read more about it here.
Working together has been quite fun lately. I enjoy the morning drive and singing along to the radio.
Dylan and Sean dressed the same this week. So cute.
Really hoping we can get our car out for a drive soon. We’ve had it in the garage for over a year and I know it wants me to drive it. FAST! This one is 1982, my parents had a similar silver Corvette in 1979.
We had a tornado warning and some serious rain on Wednesday, but being a trooper, I braved it to cruise over to the Toronto Island Yacht Club and celebrate with Veuve Cliquot. I felt really under dressed until it started pouring and then I was super thankful for my yellow lace raincoat.
The party was well decorated. Fancy.
The new Veuve Clicquot RICH goes great with fresh grapefruit. It’s made for mixing and JUST came out in Canada. I suggest giving it a whirl for your next dinner party, BBQ, or Sunday afternoon.
There were lots of A-Listers/T-Listers. Galen Weston was there too. Joey (Articulate Eats) and I had a nice chat with him about Loblaws, SDM, and Life Brand.
Finally got my hair done yesterday. I like to leave my roots to grow in a bit but let me tell you, being blonde is hard work! I’ve been going to The Loft Toronto for a few months now and I really love the experience. The crew are lovely, it’s decorated with vintagey things, and is right near the office.
The plate wall is one of my fav things.
I had lots on my to-do list so a hair appt didn’t mean stepping away from the office. When you’re me, the office is anywhere and you’re always on the clock. I bring WIFI wherever I go (Thanks Telus!) and I’m ready to stop, drop, and blog any minute.
After hair I did take a ‘lunch’ break for a Dermalogica facial with Vee and it was magical. I highly suggest treating yourself. Vee is a Dermalogica Expert and a facial is a great way to treat your skin to the love it deserves. She exfoliated, treated it for again, sun damage, and added vitamins/serums that will work on my face for the next 72 hours. Come Sunday, I’ll be glowing more than I am already. 🙂
I saw these boots on Sidewalk Hustle’s Instagram the other day and ordered them late before bed from my phone. I love online shopping so much. When I arrived back to the studio they were beside my desk.
Normally I don’t hope for rain but, when you’ve got really cute rain gear, there’s nothing that stop you from wanting to show it off! Stay dry out there my friends!
Today I’m rappelling down Toronto city hall with Telus for Make a Wish Foundation. Just another regular ol’ day, THIS IS MY LIFE! 🙂
