I can't believe Christmas is only a couple days away!! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and best wishes for 2015! What are your New Year's plans?
Christmas decor in my lobby
Nadege Patisserie just opened a new location in the PATH. I was really excited about this and went a few days ago to pick up some marshmallows and macarons.
A few nights ago - dinner at Bloor Street Diner before watching The Imitation Game at the theatre above. We decided to try out the VIP theatre which I thought was not worth it at all. The screen and room are a lot smaller than regular theatres. The movie was amazing though and I definitely recommend it. I may be biased as I love all war movies..
Hennessy has an adorable new friend (just for a week though)
Lunch with my mom at Dragon Legend today. I LOVE the decor in the restaurant..it's very unique.
A few weeks ago I attended a media lunch at E11even to try some of their new menu offerings. The restaurant is located right beside the Air Canada Centre. It has a great atmosphere; especially on nights where there's a game going on. I've been here for drinks a couple times in the past but I think this is the first time I'm trying their food. It was really good! The flatbread was my favourite. I also loved the slider burgers.
These yearly holiday tree lights have just gone up around my area. I always love seeing them, but it also makes me sad because it means winter is almost here once again - already. I'm pretty lucky my building is connected to the underground path which means I don't even have to step foot outdoors to get to most places unless absolutely necessary (actually I'm in there most of the time during warm weather as well..). I would like winter a lot more if I had Christmas/New Year's plans already though.

My building has been going through a complete renovation. They finished my floor about a month ago. I love our new shiny black floors! Apparently my floor is the only one that has black though..all the other floors got non-shiny grey tiles which doesn't look as nice, in my opinion. The manager told me everyone voted to have grey but they decided on black for one floor just to see how it looked..I'm glad they chose mine lol.
& on the right side is Hennessy hiding in a blanket. I couldn't find him anywhere once night. He wasn't in any of his usual sleeping spots..then I saw him peeking out at me from the laundry pile. He wrapped himself up pretty nicely!

Dim Sum lunch with my mom at Casa Imperial + media lunch at E11even (blog post on this coming soon!)
I have been loyal to Dior foundation for many years but when I made the switch to liquid foundation (from powder), I didn't like the Dior one as much. I finally found the perfect one - the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet. I love the scent of it too.
It's funny in my previous post I said I would update my blog more frequently but as expected, that didn't happen. In fact, I think the time from that post to this one is probably the longest time I haven't blogged. I just haven't had the time these days. I feel extremely busy yet I'm also not because I've been re-watching the entire series of Desperate Housewives (one of my favourite shows) from the beginning. Back to back episodes..I'm now up to season 3.
I poured out the rest of the vodka and washed the Crystal Head bottle..now it makes for the perfect foundation brush holder. The window cleaners came today. Luckily I was awake this time and had my curtains closed (usually they come early in the morning when I'm still in bed...)
