Title stolen from Wil Wheaton who says that on twitter whenever he's traveling to new cities. But it's true, I am in Toronto. :) I arrived yesterday afternoon and I haven't really stopped smiling since.
I'm temporarily staying in a small flat that I found on airBNB.com. I'm starting looking for a place with a vengeance but I'm not expecting it to be easy.
Today I just walked around down Queen St., up University Ave and then down Dundas, kind of in a circle.
Here's what I was wearing.
Dress: Smoking Lily (last worn here)
Tights: ? (they are way to long so I'm throwing them away)
Shoes: Fluevog Presence | Impel (last worn here)
I wore the BIG SKULL cardigan as well.
I brought a lot of Smoking Lily clothes because they are completely washable and don't really wrinkle. You'll be seeing these pieces a lot until I get a permanent place and have my stuff delivered from Halifax.
So here's some of the things I saw today.
First thing I went to breakfast. I had The Standard, not the Disco Breakfast. I'm not sure what makes it Disco - maybe I should ask.
Walking down Queen Street I saw this sign at a Poutinerie. OM NOM NOM indeed.
I saw this adorable display in the window of The Knit Cafe. It's a knit cat playing with pompoms. Adorable! I didn't bring any knitting so maybe I should go there and get some yarn for a small project.
I went to the new Gravity Pope store and saw this special edition colour of the Fluevog Queen Transcendent | Nefertiti. I like this colour much better than the black or pink at the Fluevog store. Might have to go back....
Guess where I went next? Yup, less than 24 hours in the city and I was at Fluevog.
Terrible photo but I left with the Swordfish Postmodern Slushy (I keep calling them "Squishy"). I've been lusting over them for a few months now so it was fate.
I'm usually a 7 1/2 in Fluevogs but in these I got the 6! They fit very big. There's your tip of the day. Size down!
After going to Fluevog I walked to where I'll be working and then walked to where I'm living. It's about a 30 minute walk. Not too bad.
Walking back to my apartment, I walked past the Art Gallery of Ontario. This was on the window. I'll take it as a sign. :)
After getting back to my place I went out to a Vietnamese restaurant recommended to me. Had a yummy vermicelli bowl.
I'll have to find a grocery store soon or I'll be broke.
When walking back from the restaurant I saw this sign outside a salon. I really love grumpy cat too!
Better run. I'm going to grab a bite to eat and then I'm having a drink with someone I used to work with in Halifax who moved here about 18 months ago. I'm a social butterfly!
