One weekend, a friend and I decided to wander around and check out some new winter spots in the city. One notable structure is that modern igloo piece at the Forks downtown, where I had my ootd taken. Designed by Anish Kapoor (same person behind Chicago's cloud gate), the ice sculpture named the Stackhouse is a contribution to Winnipeg's yearly warming huts exhibition. Each block from the magnificent structure was made out of water sourced from the Red River. 
Isn't it impressive?
We decided to warm up with some tea at Joy's Tea, located in the heart of the Wolseley neighbourhood. I specially loved the gorgeous interiors of this new spot as you can see in the photos. They are open late as well, which is good news to people who prefer their tea over coffee. 
Overall, it was a great day discovering new things in the city, something I haven't done in a while!


I spent my last full day in Toronto along the stretch of Queen Street West and Trinity Bellwoods. Everything about this neighbourhood was just up my alley -- from the random murals on every block, local cafes with hip interiors and lifestyle stores selling the coolest pieces. I literally spent my entire morning and afternoon there before meeting up with friends for dinner that night. We got reservations to this amazing Spanish tapas restaurant, called Patria and I totally recommend it to anyone visiting Toronto. My friends also got me a little surprise 'churro' birthday treat, which was really sweet and thoughtful. It was a great ending to this memorable trip in the east coast.
