Huge haul at The Sweet Potato last night. I made a nice healthy dinner and he played records. I also made kale chips. Who am I?! If this is growing up, I really like it. Feels good to have quiet nights at home after being on the go for the last 5 years at every event in the city. I’m much pickier about the things I go to these days.
The sky in Toronto was really beautiful last night.
Had a drink and snack at The Drake hotel with a former colleague from MTV. My how times change! It’s always nice to catch up with old friends. If they’ve been reading my blog, we seem to always pick up right where we left off.
Pretty stoked to go to Boston next weekend. Crazy thing, the people from CityPASS contacted me after I mentioned them in the CAA post last week about travelling to NY & LA. The power of THE INTERNET is truly amazing! Looking forward to touring around the city and showing Sean all my fav spots. We’ll start with Harvard, MIT, and the Boston Common. Hopefully we have spring weather by then!
Remember, you’ll never be younger than you are today!
Last weekend I booked a trip with Sean to visit some friends next month in Boston. I go there about twice a year for a mini vacation. He’s never been to ‘beantown’ so I’m pretty excited to show him around the gorgeous city.
Mum is always first to remind me about the importance of travel insurance and for this trip I was able to purchase it online through CAA using my new CAA membership.
As I was checking out all the life-side assistance benefits from CAA I was happy to find out I can save money on a Boston CityPASS.
The CityPASS allows you to check out some of the greatest attractions in the city at a discounted price.It’s valid 9 days from day of first use and you get to skip most ticket lines with your CityPASS in hand. You know I hate waiting in lines!
CityPASS gives you admission to these 5 must-see Boston attractions:
New England Aquarium (Never been!)
Museum of Science (Never been!)
Skywalk Observatory So cool. See photo below!
Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (Never been!)
Harvard Museum of Natural History OR Revolutionaty Boston at The Old State House
The Boston CityPASS was $89.95 and with CAA I saved $45.96 PER TICKET.
After having my membership for a mere two months, I have saved more than the membership itself costs! Yeah!
I went to the skywalk last year it it was so neat! There’s a full 360 view of downtown Boston. The night I was there the Blue Jays were playing the Red Socks at Fenway Park and I took this photo. I think the Jays won.
If you love travel like me, you’ll be happy to know that CAA’s wide variety of travel benefits also feature these fine cities. Atlanta is famous for its glorious weather, Chicago is the place to go if you’re a foodie, and Philadelphia is particularly good if you have kids, just look at the best hotels in philadelphia for families, if you need some accommodation ideas. I’m personally hoping to take advantage of New York and LA CityPASS this summer.
This was a cool thing to wake up to on Monday morning! Last spring I was a model in the Dare to Wear Love fashion show for Toronto’s World Mastercard Fashion Week. This year, I’m on the website with fashion legend Jeanne Beker!
I bet when you see this thing at a construction site near you the first thing that comes to mind is not shoes? It’s ok, I would have never thought that EITHER!
I own one pair of CAT boots (See: Stella in brown) that I’m wearing right now and have worn, walked, and biked in since they arrived in September. They might be the most comfortable boots I own.
Prepare to be amazed by the CAT footwear’s 2013 collection. You will be wanting!
I LOVE this little shoe.
There are all for your boyfriend.
These are wedges. Love!
Heart a flutter over these little babies.
And these too.
Swoon worthy boot love.
The Fermenting Cellar and various buildings in the Distillery are so lovely for their sheer beauty and oldness. I have a crush on this set of chairs. Reminds me of something Mum would have at our house.
There are some really, really nice styles for men. These are for someone handsome & stylish.
I get to pick a pair from the collection and I can’t decide, they are all so nice. Which ones would you pick from my photos? LMK in the comments!
Last week I got a CAA membership and I’m pretttttty excited about it. Why you ask? Remember having an SPC card as a student? Well, a CAA Membership is kinda like one of those for adults. CAA offers Life-side assistance in the form of savings and rewards from heaps of partners in North America.
I’ve never owned a car but when I started driving my Mum had CAA memberships for both my sister and I. She didn’t feel safe with us on the road without knowing we had CAA, just in case something happened. You would not believe how many times it came in handy. I remember saying “It’s ok I have CAA” and getting a friends card towed, a boyfriends car towed, or saving the day when someone accidentally’ locked the keys in the car. (No not me, never!)
I really enjoy driving and having a CAA membership makes me feel safer, especially for long highway drives. Would have been great for our trip to Austin for SXSW last year! Doh.
Over the next couple weeks I’ll be sharing some of my shopping, dining, and entertainment savings that come with having a CAA Membership. I was honestly shocked to see just how many partners they have including a full service travel agency. I’ll be exploring that option in great detail.
Most of all I’m looking forward to shopping discounts at Gap & Banana Republic Factory stores, finally visiting the Ontario Science Centre, and taking my BF out for a dinner and a movie.
