Last weekend I took a trip to Toronto to attend Techmunch. The conference itself was incredible. I learned so much and met some wonderful people. Since the trip is 4 hours there and 4 hours home it did not leave much time for scouring the city for Farmer’s Markets and cute little shops. I did however get to hit Whole Foods, Williams Sonoma and browse around the Hot & Spicy Food Festival while there.
I also made a quick trip to Sephora. And when I say quick I mean it. We had 20 minutes at the mall after Mission Impossibling our way through the Toronto streets. So I spent 10 minutes at Sephora and 10 minutes at Williams Sonoma. Since we don’t have either locally it was a quick but welcome treat. It’s amazing how much money you can spend in each of those stores in 10 minutes. I also scooted over to Whole Foods. And when I say scooted I mean drove past three times due to traffic not letting me merge then almost having a coronary in the tiny, narrow parking garage that is not meant to hold the beast that is my SUV. I can see why people in the city walk or bike. Traffic is insane and parking is like navigating a labyrinth. Had so much fun though. I personally like small towns and am not a city gal. B-Dude on the other hand loved it. Except for Sephora. He rebelled and hit Banana Republic instead. Dudes, what can you do. Hope you enjoy the pics. It’s the FFF post with the least fruits and veggies ever. I’d apologize but heck, I don’t even feel a little bit bad about it.
I think we’re venturing to St. Jacob’s next week so if we do there should be more pics of actual fruits and veggies from actual farms in next week’s edition. Like I said, I want to feel bad but it’s really hard when you get to go to places like Williams Sonoma, Whole Foods and Sephora. The only way this day could have better is if I had hit Crate and Barrel or The Container Store. A girl has to have standards. See you next week with actual perishables I promise!
If you’d like to see actual photos of the Techmunch conference head on over to Swallow. I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Ivy Knight there, she is a riot to engage with. I am planning on descending upon Toronto again in the fall so I can crash one of her parties. Also planning on hitting all the farmer’s markets with Izzy from Crumb. Izzy is the most down to earth lady you could ever meet. Sharp as a razor too, the woman is brilliant. I apologize for not taking photos at the conference. Must have been lack of sleep or just being overwhelmed by all the amazing speakers. I had a choice, take pics or notes. I figured the notes would be a good decision. Good call if you ask me!
Toodles and smoochies! xx
