Events, usually they have a hashtag.

If you’re looking for something cool to do tonight, check out the New Creations Festival at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. I’m heading back from Edmonton to meet Sean there for a date! The festival wraps up tonight w/ Water by Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead.. It adds the beautiful sound of tambura, vocals from Brett Dean, and DJ Skratch Bastid wraps it up with a remix from the festival. Check out KNOCKING AT THE HELLGATE.

This week I ventured out to Square One is Mississauga. I hadn’t been there in YEARS, man that place has really changed! Toyota invited me to check out their pop-up inside the old Target store that’s directed at millennials like me with a love for tech & digital. Yesterday the story was featured in Marketing Magazine and Strategy online with me in VR as the lead photo. Huzzah! The event is spearheaded by Desperado and Saatchi & Saatchi Canada. Scroll for my experience & see some stuff I made 😊. Toyota’s ‘Towards Tomorrow’ opens this weekend during mall hours and is around till…

Watch the awards last night? They seemed to go on forever! I’m glad, along with the entire internet that Leo finally won. There were some totally WTF moments, Stacey Dash, those three Asian kids? I know people are upset about the lack of black nominees but I wasn’t expecting the ENTIRE show and all the commentary to be about it. I don’t find Chris Rock to be that funny. Everything that came out of his mouth was about race, everything! Jokes about Will & Jada were mean, the ‘black bloke from Star Wars — Darth Vader’, using those kids as a…

On Thursday night next week I’m hosting a dinner at Lisa Marie on Queen Street with Chef Matt Basile. Our Muskoka Bound theme is about #cottagelife and For $60 you get food, drinks, and a fun night, tip is also included. U-Feast events typically sell out, so get a ticket now! The menu is incredible. I stopped into Lisa Marie last week to taste a few items and I’ve been thinking about them since. Read Matt’s Interview in NOW Magazine  “On February 25, you can witness another side of the in-demand chef at U-Feast’s Muskoka Bound at the restaurant. Hosted…

The other day I hosted a party at the Toronto WILDFOX shop w/ HIGH STREET fashion. We had champagne, a candy bar, onsite fashion illustrations, and a great DJ. The night was celebrating the launch of the WILDFOX Fairytale collection 2016. I was a huge fan of the brand years ago and it’s nice to see the latest is still totally up my alley. A nice mix of mermaid/fairytale fun with a side of rock n’ roll. Here’s some of my fav photos from the night. All pix by Pedro Marques unless otherwise noted. See more at #wildfoxinthe6ix on Instagram or Twitter. Thanks everyone who…

What do you think of this look? I’ve joined the #NoHairSelfie movement, demonstrating my support for those undergoing cancer treatment by shaving my head (virtually!). Scroll down to see how you can join over 30,000 people shaving their heads (IRL/virtually) and donate to the cause. This year alone, 15 million people were diagnosed with cancer worldwide, by 2030, this number will reach 22 million, an increase of 47 per cent.

Early January (after the tree house adventure) I’m flying to Detroit, Michigan for the North American International Auto Show. This is my third time at the show with Ford Canada as part of their global blogger/media outreach. A couple years ago I attended the show and Ford snapped this great photo of me right before the auditorium filled up for a major media announcement. The NAIAS is very exciting and a super cool experience. I even made it into the Detroit Free Press, see here! Last year 5,000 journalists attended from 60 countries. Happy to be heading back! On Earth Day 2015 I was in…
