 Spring is in the air.. Spring is in the Gucci store windows. The Spring collection is just full of floral prints, graphic prints, metallic and pastel colours that just pop in fantastic style. Even the shoes and bags are so oozing in luxury style. Spring brings about a new excitement, a looking forward to something lighter and warmer. Step out in lighter and more stylish style.

May your blessings out number the shamrocks that grow.
And may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

Year Of The Dog & Louis Vuitton

 The Louis Vuitton windows here in Toronto celebrated the Chinese Lunar Year of the Dog with a delightful display of two of my favourite in this world, dogs and bags. The new bag for this season is the re-design of the classic Neo bag now known as the Néonoé bag which has a long shoulder strap that can be carried on the shoulder and across the body. The colours are funky combinations in blue and red, yellow and purple, pink and orange, red an blue and the classic all black. Seeing these windows with the dogs and the bags was love at first sight. 

Icefest18: Medieval Times

 Last weekend, in the middle of a warm winter, we celebrated the Icefest 2018 Winter Hath Come at Toronto's Bloor-Yorkville park. It was a celebration of ice sculptures, food, drinks and music. We witnessed expert ice sculptors demonstrating their talent and creativity in their interpretation of Medieval Times‘ characters and places. The park was a showcase of knights, Kings and Queens, castle, swords, armours, court jesters and even dragons all sculpted in ice. This was one of our fun and magical winter traditions in our City. It's a time for everyone to enjoy the ice and winter season. 

Chanel Cruise

 During this winter, we dream of going to warmer and sunny locations to escape the cold and snow. The Chanel Cruise 2017/2018 collection on display at Holt Renfrew Bloor Street, Toronto showcase the beautiful collection inspired by travelling to the Greek Islands. Everything in the collection are so stylish and chic from the Grecian inspired clothes, the bags in white and gold, the Greek sandals and jewelries. Nothing wrong to dream that we are travelling in style to a scenic and warm location especially with everything Chanel in our luggage.

Happy Chinese New Year!

 Yesterday, 16 February was the beginning of the celebration of the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Dog. It is a celebration of food and well wishes of joy, prosperity and excellent health to family and friends. Here at Holt Renfrew on Bloor St, Toronto, they celebrated with a display of the Banyan Tree wishing tree where guest can write on a paper their wish and hang it on the tree. Tradition stated that the wishing paper is usually tossed up onto the tree and if it successfully hangs onto the tree, the wishes will come true. May all of our wishes come true. 

Valentine's Day Treats

 Valentine's Day for some people may be a depressing day. Rather than gloat or retreat on this day, share the love and calories by visiting Nadege Patisserie to purchase their sweet and lovely Valentine's Day treats of macaron, chocolate teddy bears with heart and heart shaped chocolates. The macaron comes in pastel colours and different flavours like rose, champagne, hazelnut, pistachio, even exotic flavours like kalamansi, the Filipino lemon fruit. If sharing calories is not your forte, then visit the L'Occitane boutiques to pamper yourself or loved ones with the ever smooth shea butter lotions, soaps and other natural products from  Provence, the south of France. Whatever way you choose to celebrate Valentine's Day, remember to always look up, be more loving and be grateful. We never know, miracles can happen anytime. Just believe in love. Love conquers all. 

Happy Valentine's Day!
