Toronto shenanigans with Kelly McKelly!

Who’s so lucky? I’m so lucky!

I got to meet Kelly McKelly while she was here in Toronto and we went all over Toronto. Well, not really….but we certainly got around.

Here is our day in a few words and mostly photos.  Yup. PHOTOS.

First stop, the Face Shop (Eaton Centre).  No photos inside the store, but here’s my portion of the haul.  Keep in mind, Kelly went back the next day and picked up more items! How could you not….look at all the goodness:

We also spent time at the Illamasqua counter at the Bay. I picked up one of their new-ish  Matte lip liquid glosses and am kicking myself for not also picking up one of their *new* nude collection lipsticks.

*please note, the Marcelle products are going to a wonderful gentleman in Florida named Lewis*

Then we went into The Body Shop and said hi to Anita the manager. I had been eying several products but settled on the body sorbet. Anita was kind enough to give us some samples of a blur type product for eyes and face (Kelly only slightly scoffed at the size or lack of size of the samples).   I’ll be going back for what I originally went in for, the dry oil:

Phew! Finally made it to the subway.  We ended up dining at John and Sons Oyster House.  Neither of us had Oysters but Kelly enjoyed some Fish and Chips and I had the shrimp tacos.  Just to be scandalous, we also SHARED the homemade donuts.  They were worth every bite!

Then, a brief stop at the New Balance store (and declarations that we were in fact the COOLEST customers in the store), off we went to Me and T studio.  How could I NOT take Kelly to Me and T studio?  I think she was slightly impressed.  Her hands and feet looked amazing, we partook in the candy bar, gushed over the LoveFresh products. And of course, let’s not forget these 3:

We ended up back on the subway and decided to take a load off at the Toronto Hilton.  There was an interesting encounter with a gift shop clerk during a search for overpriced Gravol, and then it was time to meet up with Jill and Melissa for dinner at the fabulous Montecito.  I’ll tell you right now I am SO glad I booked that restaurant. It’s definitely going to be a tiff hot spot and it was nice to see what they would have before they are booked through next year.  Get your drool bib out, here come the food photos:

Is that enough for you? It certainly was for me!  I left my house that morning, arrived in Toronto at 10:30.  I got home at midnight.  Long day much? No matter it was TOTALLY WORTH IT.  Hope Kelly can say the same…..
