spring fever is here.

Spring is officially in season, and although the weather isn’t quite co-operating yet, spring activities are in full swing. I like to make lists of things each season that I want to do – things a little more fun than just going to dinner with friends, or heading to a pub after work. Toronto is a great city, filled with tons of things you can do both indoors and out. Here are a few of the things I want to do this season.

go to a Blue Jays game – the Skydom (..sorry, Rogers Centre) is one of my favourite venues for concerts, games, and other events – especially in the spring/summer when they open the roof!

grow a succulent terrarium – I currently have a little cactus that my boyfriend bought me in the fall, but I don’t know how well the little guy is doing in this cold weather. I want to research more, buy a few more succulents and have a little garden.

spring clean – especially my closet! It is definitely time to switch out the big wool sweaters for shorts and fun spring skirts.

go to a concert – I love going to concerts, both indoors and out. With summer festivals right around the corner, now is the time to start booking tickets!

go to an amusement park – I find spring is the best time to do this because you don’t get sunburnt!


summer scents.

Summer is by far my favourite season. I love being outdoors, I love spending time at my cottage, and I especially love the sun. Aside from being able to switch to my summer wardrobe, my next favourite summer style change is being able to switch to all my spring and summer perfumes. In the summer I really love light, airy, fresh scents.

My four favourite summer scents are the ones below. I love the Bobbi Brown one because it smells a tad like sunscreen which is extremely reminiscent of the beach! Flora, by Gucci, has a beautiful and airy floral scent that isn’t too overdone. My housemate all through university was an avid wearing of D&G’s Light Blue and I’ve loved it’s fresh smell every since! Lastly, the Marc Jacobs summer scent line – especially the hibiscus one – is absolutely lovely and reminds me so much of being on vacation.
