Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in style, travel, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

6IX

6IX

A visit to Toronto right after seeing Drake is only right.

I spent a few days in one of my favorite cities in Canada just before the weekend. Though it rained a good chunk of the time, I still was so happy about being there. Read my last Toronto blog post here

First things first, we stayed in a nice Airbnb right around the block from Yonge-Dundas Square, which was an absolutely perfect location. The best way to describe it is like a mini-Times Square kind of place, but not as overwhelming as the real thing. We got lunch at the rooftop Jack Astor's then walked down Yonge for a bit while we took advantage of the sun.

Nathan Phillips Park was on the way to our next stop. It was only 27°C, but it felt like 40°C in the sun {but it was probably just me}. There were loads of food trucks sitting on the street as we walked by.

Sweet Jesus

Sweet Jesus

Sweet Jesus was where we were heading when it began to rain. If you don't already know, Sweet Jesus is literally the best soft serve I have ever had, and I seriously love ice cream, so I know what I'm talking about. I can't find the words to describe how good it is, so you just have to try it for yourself. 

When I was in the city last, Drake was in the process of opening his swanky Toronto-based restaurant, Pick 6ix. Since it wasn't ready last time, I was excited to try it out while in town for this trip. Before we left for the city, we tried making reservations to make sure we'd be able to get in and try it, completely disregarding the horrible reviews we saw online. {To be honest, I would've gone and loved it anyway}. BUT, they didn't allow reservations, claiming that it was closed and they didn't answer the phone when we called. Yet we still walked there to check it out and saw that it was closed for renovations, even if it had open just a few months prior. So, next time I guess.

We got dinner and drinks at Kelly's Landing instead by Union Station.

The next morning we got brunch at Kōst on the 44th floor at the Bisha Hotel Toronto. Though it was foggy and a little chilly, the view was amazing and the food was even better.

We spent most of our last day in town at the CF Toronto Eaton Centre, which is a giant mall in Yonge-Dundas Square. Though I didn't buy anything I thought I would, I did pick up this eye cream by Origins at Sephora. It brightens and de-puffs your eyes and I saw immediate results, so of course, I had to buy it.

The last few things we did was getting sushi for lunch and then stopping by a cute little shop called Fugo Dessert that specialized in interesting desserts. If you haven't noticed, all we really did was eat on this trip since it was raining. 

This trip was quicker than the last and I really hope to be back in one of my favorite places very soon.
