JT in TO

Justin Timberlake and his best pal, Trace Ayala, visited The Hudson Bay Company Queen street store on Jul 16 to promote their clothing brand, William Rast!

Trace and Justin talked about their clothing line and answered fans’ twitter questions. It was just awesome seeing the legendary Justin Timberlake in the flesh!

ps – Thanks to HBC for the refreshing water and cookies 🙂

Visual Diary: Diving into Good Food at Canoe restaurant and bar

Luckily for the budget-minded, Toronto’s Summerlicious (‘special offers’ offered by restaurants throughout the city) is in full effect.

My best friend, Regina, and I decided that we would try Canoe restaurant’s menu. We called on the day of and luckily got a spot for 2:15 Lunch.

Located atop of TD Tower, we marveled at its breath-taking view of Toronto and appreciated the taste and the visual presentation of the food served to us.
