Fira is Back

Hello all, I am back! I had an amazing trip, very inspiring and memorable. I’ve met lots of great people and I’ve learned to accept others with an open heart.

Germany is a beautiful country full of wonders and things to explore. Our vacation was too short to even start to fully appreciate all the greatness of Bavaria, and we are determined to go back for more in the near future. In the meanwhile, I fell in love with Munich – one of the oldest Bavarian cities and home to its royalty. The city centre is a bubbling mixture of old and new, of the past and the future. Benetton’s digital interactive ad is located right next to an old church and both look like they actually belong there.

My first two days in TO have proved to be super busy. I am recovering from a horrible flight back (never ever fly Icelandair, they suck!), making some changes to my lifestyle (resolutions, resolutions…), and getting ready for my trip to Florida with Capa. I also have some great material for the blog, mainly upcoming art events.

Have fun, stay healthy and happy!

Joe Fresh Undies

Just a quick note to my girlfriends… Joe Fresh is launching their new underwear line in select locations. I love the simplicity and quality of the collection - mostly cotton in basic colors. Their bras range from $10 to $16, and panties are $3-$7. Also, check out the new sleep and lounge wear collection - I am in love with beautiful pastels.

Mitzi's On College

Meet my newly-discovered brunch spot - Mitzi's on College. It's just a 3 minute walk away from College and Ossington and it has an amazing big patio. The key is to arrive early before the hang-over crowd crawls out of bed. I went there on Saturday around 11a.m. and got a table on the patio right away.

The food is outstanding, and the service is not bad at all… I was a bit disappointed when the waitress just dumped all out water glasses and cutlery on the table without giving us each a glass and fork-knife set. Other then that she was friendly and accommodating substituting my fries for extra fruit.

I had the best pancake ever at the Mirzi's, with lots of fresh fruit, real whipped cream and berries. The scrambled eggs and the omelet looked amazing and fresh, and the plates were large and filling. I will bring my family there for my B-Day lunch - they keep asking me to take them to a place "where the cool people go".

Oh, just a small cloud over M's blue skies - their "freshly-pressed" grapefruit juice tasted like it was fresh two days ago. Opt for coffee or tea.

Mitzi's has some siblings in TO. Check out their site for more locations.
