Lounge Underwear

My favourite kind of deliveries are definitely underwear. Actually, make that comfortable underwear. Recently I tried out Lounge Underwear products, this is a company I had seen on Instagram and fell in love with. They are made in the UK and are super comfy and fit fairly well. They are made out of 100% Cotton and the quality of the product is very well-made. What I like most about the set is that the bra is elastic all the way around (no bra clasp). The shipping was really quick and the packaging was sleek and simple, which I also love. The idea is similar to Calvin Klein’s underwear sets,  but I think that  Lounge adds a more feminine look.

Thank you Lounge Underwear for the wonderful gift!

Queen Margherita Pizza ( Dundas )

This past weekend, I had an awesome experience at Queen Margarita Pizza. I went for dinner and enjoyed their PRIX FIXE menu option. With this you get to choose one appetizer, one pizza and a dessert, for only $30! This is the perfect pizza spot to bring somebody with a gluten allergy as well. There are many gluten-free options that are actually tasty. Here are a few of the items that I tried from QMP , all of which were amazing.  The restaurant is very spacious and would be great for a holiday party with friends and family.

Hungry Amoo – Toronto

The most recent restaurant that I have visited, Hungry Amoo. This is a great spot for snacks and drinks on Ossington, you have to check out! All the dishes that I tried were creative and so flavourful. Hungry Amoo offers dishes from different international cuisines, some of which I had never tried before. Something that I really love about this restaurant is that the menu is seasonal and changes based on which ingredients are most fresh.

All the employees here were very friendly and helpful, especially our server Yasmine. She was passionate about the menu and explained how it worked, so we could get a better understanding of the type of cuisine. Yasmine also recommended a few dishes, which I found really nice. Needless to say, we were definitely taken care of @ Hungry Amoo.

But my favorite thing about eating @ Hungry Amoo, is that we left with belly’s full of wonderful food! And all of it was gluten-free.

Cool bar setup! Delicious cocktails too, most of which I had never heard of before. I tried the pomegranate spritz and I found it had such a unique flavour. This is definitely a great place to go for drinks with friends!

Tamarind Beef (GF) $12

Crispy Pulled Brisket, Cashew, Date sauce, Brussel Sprout. This dish was by far, the favorite dish of the evening. The beef was so tender and cooked beautifully. I had never tried Tamarind Beef before, and I was really impressed.

 

Overall, I had a great experience dining at Hungry Amoo. I would recommend trying it out here because the menu is so diverse and unique. They master all different cuisines, theres a bit of everything.

 

Thank you to the Hungry Amoo Team and to Yasmine for being such a great help! I will be back to try the Pistachio Soup.

 

 

AQUIS Hair Towels

Recently, I have begun a new hair routine to strengthen my thin and broken locks. A product that has already made a difference is my new AQUIS Hair Towel.  I received this towel about 2 weeks ago and have used it after every hair wash. It is made to soak all of the water out of your hair to reduce the use of a blow dryer. When hair is wet it is most vulnerable, so minimizing heat is very important. Aquis is made up of a material that quickly and safely drys the hair. The longer that your hair stays wet, the more it stretches and water it absorbs. But, when it gets too stretched and bloated the keratin bonds rupture and your hair loses all natural elasticity. So it’s crucial to dry your hair fast to prevent damage. But to do so in a way that doesn’t stress or stretch your hair. It is lightweight, so it does not pull on your head and you can continue with your beauty routine while having this gentle towel on. 

I got LUXE LONG HAIR TOWEL in Moody Grey and Ive noticed that by keeping this towel on my head for as little as ten minutes, my hair is about 75-80% dry. This is perfect for the winter months because coming out of the shower with wet hair, is uncomfortably chilly. This drys the hair fast and damage-free. 

You can find these towels at Sephora or @ AQUIS.COM

Thank you again AQUIS. 

Thompson Diner – Toronto

A few days ago @ an extremely late hour of the evening, I wanted to go out and eat somewhere. But of course at 1:30am on a Tuesday, everywhere in Toronto is closed. As I researched where we could possibly go that was 24 hours, I came across The Thompson Diner. This was about a 20 min drive because it is downtown, although there was no traffic considering the time we went. 
 When we got to the Thompson, I knew exactly what I was ordering. TRUFFLE MAC AND CHEESE WITH BACON! I had seen this on Instagram several times and knew I needed to have it. This is something I would normally never order but I am so glad that I did. This was so rich and creamy I was actually in heaven. The food came pretty quick and at this time it wasn’t very busy, which was nice.  
I recomend going to the Thompson Diner for a late night bite to eat, it was awesome!
