Happy Monday! Feliz Cinco de Mayo! Will you be celebrating with a mojito or eating yummy Mexican food this evening?! I’m very fond of Mexico, its people and its culture. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to Mexico on several occasions: I was able visit a bit of Mexico City but my favorite destinations thus far have been Puerto Escondido and Sayulita. Mexico too often gets a bad rap but I’ve only met wonderful people and had the best of times while traveling in this beautiful country. It’s where my love of surf developed and where I’ve met people I know call some of my best friends. So Happy Cinco de Mayo amigos mexicanos!
Today starts one of the busiest weeks of the year for me – the annual Canadian Music Week. I’ve been attending CMW every year since 2007, wearing different hats. This year I’ll be doing a bunch of live music sessions for the show I host BRBR as well as hosting a showcase on Thursday night at the Gladstone Hotel. All the deets can be found here. In addition, I look forward to seeing a handful of artists that are in town for the week. There are thousands of bands coming from around the world to Toronto this week. If you’re looking for some must-see acts, I’ve created a little playlist with the help of Deezer, with some of the acts that are worth checking out. You can listen to my playlist here.
Happy the sun is finally shining down on Toronto! Celebrating by not wearing any tights!! It’s a revolution!! Love this Forever 21 mesh and lace bohemian dress that Offner found for me last year in California. Since it’s not incredible warm yet, I’ve paired it up with a plaid buttoned up shirt to make the outfit a little warmer!
