Ripley's Aquarium | Downtown Toronto

Ripley's Aquarium in Toronto is one of those attractions that is truly fun for people of all ages. We've been several times now and have seen babies in strollers and teenagers on Saturday night dates. Even The Weeknd and Selena Gomez while they were still together enjoyed a date night at Ripley's. This is because everyone- little ones, grown-ups and globally famous pop stars- loves pretty fishes. I also love how this $130-million facility has livened up what was for years a real dead zone in the downtown core. We recently became members because with the winter we have been having, it's a great place to take my little guy so he can burn off all that little-boy-energy. He just tears through the place and the interactive kid's area where they can actually touch the fish is amazing. This is really an attraction where the pictures speak louder than words, so, enjoy! Rosie :)

Images From The City: Sam The Record Man Sign

Look up at the northeast corner of Yonge-Dundas Square and you'll see the restored legendary Sam The Record Man neon sign, just around the corner (and way up high) from it's original location.

Angelic Nails Bar | South Etobicoke

For years I never bothered with manicures because my nails do not grow too long without breaking, and polish always chipped off within hours of getting my nails done so didn't really see the point. Then the SHELLAC manicure came around and that changed... now even my short nails could have amazing colours that actually lasted. There are lots of great places in Toronto to get a good shellac manicure but I found a new place on The Queensway that is just a little extra special. I rarely get the trendy pretty nail art because my nails are so short, but at Angelic Nails Bar even short nails can have ombré...

I never know what I want so I loved that Lyda took charge and gave me the most gorgeous festive nails for the Christmas season. She's awesome! Angelic Nails Bar is located at 732 The Queensway in south Etobicoke, just east of Royal York. 416-792-0341. Rosie :)

Uncle Tetsu's Japanese Angel Cafe | Downtown Toronto

One of the perks of an early morning doctor appointment in the area is being first in line at Uncle Tetsu's... actually if you get to the Dundas St. location of the Angel Cafe right when it opens, there is no line-up at all. Hand-made from the highest quality eggs, milk, cheese and butter, the Uncle Tetsu creamy smooth cheesecake is one-of-a-kind. So perfect, light, fluffy and delicious.

This location offers a dine-in experience with Japanese pop culture inspired decor and dance performances by servers dressed in the style of the Japanese maid cafes. The line-ups are so bananas at Uncle Tetsu's bakeries because they can only produce a certain number of cakes per hour. So that means a limit of only one cake per person... make it last! Rosie :)

Huevos Gourmet | South Etobicoke

Having lots of tasty reliable breakfast spots in the neighbourhood is always a bonus, but having one that serves up a plate of delicious huevos rancheros is the best ever. Huevos Gourmet on the Lakeshore serves authentic Mexican and all-day breakfast so you can get your fix of huevos allllll day long just like this:

I'm obsessed with my morning coffee and I love how there is a choice of a medium or dark roasted brew. The entire menu is delicious whether you are wanting brunch or lunch. On the Lakeshore just west of Islington, with plenty of paid parking spots nearby. Rosie :)

Invictus Games 2017

What an incredible week! Toronto embraced the Invictus Games with open arms and anyone who made it out to an event was blown away by the strength and spirit of the competitors. We attended a wheelchair rugby game between Canada and Australia and it was amazing... the competitors, men and women, were incredible to watch in action. Check out this passing for the try of the game for Canada:

My favourite moment at the closing ceremony on Saturday night was when Prince Harry came out after the star-studded concert and said to the competitors- "you said you wanted Bruce Springsteen- and I got him for you!" You could tell he was so proud to have organized an artist that everyone had wanted. The concert featured Bruce Springsteen, Kelly Clarkson, Coeur di Pirate, Bryan Adams, Bachman and Turner... it was awesome. The highlight was when Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams performed together, doing one of each other's songs... "Badlands" and "Cuts Like a Knife." What a sensational jam. Here's a bit of Bruce performing "Dancing in the Dark":

The Invictus Games will be held in Sydney, Australia in 2018. Rosie :)

"Time and time again, competitors from around the world tell me that sport has saved them; that the Invictus Games have given them a new lease on life; and that to represent their country again with fellow comrades is something they could only have dreamt of while lying in hospital." -- Prince Harry
