Happy New Year!

Having been completely absent from my blog for upwards of two weeks now, I guess I just wanted to write a quick post to wish everyone a happy new year! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday, no matter what you were celebrating!

I'm in for a nice low-key new years eve, in preparation for my birthday next weekend.

See you next year! :)

Supporting Local

For a project in school this semester I had to do a "soundslide" on a topic of my choice. Wanting to do something that was both visually appealing and catering to my interests, I found out that November was Support Local Month. So I got inspired and decided to do my slide show on a full day of supporting local. I went to some local stores and eateries and really had a good time. I was really inspired by what I heard from talking to the various owners and managers about how if we just support more local businesses, we all win. If you haven't checked out any of these places yet, I really suggest you do!

Wabi Sabi in Westboro has an amazing selection of yarn! Plus all of the ladies there are complete dolls!

Obviously if we're talking about supporting local, Victoire comes to mind almost immediately.

Next to Victoire on Dalhousie is Workshop, where you can literally find a gift for anyone on your list, even yourself.

Union 613 has probably the tastiest menu for the best value in the city. Definitely a new favourite for us.
