Manolo Blahnik Exhibit: The Art of Shoes | Bata Shoe Museum

One of my fave Carrie moments on Sex and the City is her delight when she finds what she thought was an "urban shoe legend" -the Manolo Mary Janes- in the fashion cupboard at Vogue. Carrie's love of Manolos and the spectacular styling on that show made me fall in love with the artistry that is a Manolo Blahnik shoe. The Art of Shoes at the Bata Shoe Museum is a shoe-lover's dream; an ethereal exhibit of Manolos that will have you wanting to commit museum theft. Here are some shots of my faves:

The Art of Banksy Exhibition

There is still time to see this terrific exhibit which was even better than I was expecting. The Art of Banksy had it's North American premiere here in Toronto and was extended a couple of times this summer because it was incredibly popular. I loved it. It wraps up September 16th and then off to other cities. It takes about an hour and a half to get through and I would love to see it again. Here are some of my fave pieces.

Craig's Cookies | Parkdale

I drive along Queen St. West all the time and love seeing all the new shops and eateries that open up, especially in the Parkdale area. I nearly drove off the road when I noticed Craig's Cookies has opened on the south side of Queen (east of Triller Ave, west of Wilson Park Road.)

Baker Craig Pike bakes the yummiest selection of cookies using a recipe his mom taught him when he was young. These cookies are incredible. My favourite is the peppermint patty (bottom left) and the one with a huge spoonful of peanut butter it in.

I work evenings so was very happy to find out Craig's Cookies is open until 10pm every night. I popped in on Pride weekend and picked up a Pride cookie... so delicious. My new cookie happy place! Rosie :)

It's SO MUCH FUN here! You really get the authentic izakaya experience at Guu on Queen West in Parkdale, which is all about eating, drinking and loving the vibe in your community. Expect a hearty welcome from the entire staff when you come in and a warm boisterous farewell when you leave. It's awesome. Also awesome is the menu, which features a delicious selection of Japanese faves from ramen to tataki, all perfect to soak up all the sake and Sapporo you are gonna drink.

Farm Boy | South Etobicoke

Ok it's EXCITING to have a new grocery store to shop at! Farm Boy has come to Toronto and the first location is in South Etobicoke at the Shoppes of Alderwood plaza on Brown's Line. The produce is incredible! Look at these oranges:

My little man picked out these delicious vanilla cupcakes in the amazing bakery section. The icing was so fresh!

Farm Boy is famous for their lemon garlic dressing, which is so simple... made from just olive oil, freshly squeezed lemons, minced garlic, black pepper and salt.

The selection of flowers are wonderful as well. Hello tulips... hello spring! Rosie :)
