Google HQ in Toronto

It was Digital Day at Google head quarters down town, Toronto and I was invited. A great event to learn about Consumer Surveys and everything needed to know to optimize company online activities with the help of Google. I loved all the android green guys painted on random walls, a london telephone booth and a stairwell full of Google Map locations. A googler gave us a tour of the office, which felt like a mini version of what we’ve seen in the movie The Internship. Each floor was equipped with game areas. gaming consoles, arcade driving games and old school foosball.   They have their own little in house farm of fresh herbs and a kitchen on each floor for easy access. This Android piece of art is made up of hundreds of pieces of rubik cubes. This was pretty awesome! A lot of the meeting rooms…

Graffiti Central

Between Bathurst and Spadina, South of Queen Street is graffiti central. Living and growing up downtown has given me appreciation for the hustle and bustle of the fashion district. Lunch period during middle school days were spent getting lunch and window shopping. Getting groceries from chinatown was a regular day routine and then Sanderson library. So many memories. The fashion district name derives from this area of downtown Toronto being home to clothing manufacturer businesses back in the day. Just take a look up when you’re shopping in this area and notice the old victorian like roofs on top of most of these stores. Especially standing at the corner of Queen and Spadina. Other then wholesale, limited edition, vintage and designer shops along this south side stretch of Spadina Ave, you can also take a walk down graffiti central where you’ll see work by Deadboy, Poser, Spud, Fdoe, THINGS and…

OOTD: Simple Whites

I love spending time downtown. There’s never a dull moment. So much to do, so much to see. One of my favourite places is the new pedestrian bridge, Puente de Luz. This bridge connects the CityPlace condos with a short cut to popular streets like King and Queen St. Where you can pretty much find anything. I often shy away from wearing everything white. It’s so easy to get your whites dirty if you’re walking everywhere. Which makes it even more special when you do choose this look. There’s something risky and pristine about this style. When shopping for whites, make sure you test the clothing for transparency. Do the light and hand test. Ask to see it outside or put your hand behind the fabric. If you already own items that are too see through, don’t worry. Wear a neutral or white tank top underneath the blouse or layer…

Pantene Pro-V Product Launch- Hair is what happened..

Let’s face it, we all love our hair and have tried Pantene Pro-V products at least once before. I’ve tried many brands of hair products, from the high end to the low end and honestly, I believe in changing up your hair products anywhere from 3-6 months. Whether it is a whole new brand or within the brand. Just like our face and every other part of our body and lives, everything changes over time. I remember about 8 years ago I had really curly wavy hair. I would wash my hair, air dry and POOF! curls and waves galore! Now it’s different. Air drying gets me minimal volume and waves. Just the natural evolution of hair. Feb 13th, a day before Valentine’s Day, I was invited to the Pantene Pro-V product launch on King street, downtown Toronto to be pampered. If you’re familiar with Toronto you’ll know this venue.…
