My Week In Pictures 9th -15th May

FINALLY my website is working again so I am posting last week’s blog followed by this one. Anyway, good times…. a lot of beer!

Monday

Our projector finally arrived! Now we can watch movies really large on the wall and project weird funky patterns.

Tuesday

I went to the cinema went to see Captain America, but I walked most of the way which was insane – it took the best part of two hours. I walked through High Park and the weather was beautiful!

Wednesday

All the fun in the Studio. This is Liam, doing a handstand… because why not.

Here I am!

The weather has been nice this week, so Will and I went to the park after work for a cheeky beer and some sun.

Friday

Oh…more beer…! Oops! Jessica and I went to WVURST, a German beer hall that sells an array of good sausages!

Saturday

Will and I went to a Brewery (yes, more beer) in Eglington for lunch and some ale. We had a Wh-ALE of a time 🙂

Busy busy as always, but next week RUTH NORRIS (aka one of my best friends in the universe) is coming to visit so I am so excited!!!!!

My Week In Pictures May 2nd – 8th 2016

This week has been fun! While everyone back in England seems to have been enjoying a heatwave, Toronto still seems to be breaking the spring, so we have had a real mixed bag of weather – which keeps it interesting!

Monday

Will and I went for chicken at a Portuguese place near our house that sells cocktails for $5 ! That’s ÂŁ2.50 back home. Rude not to really.

Tuesday

IMG_6918

Suns out, water-guns out! Or, erm…water jet streamy things. Whatever, they look like a summerlicious delight

Wednesday

IMG_6922

Suns out, HUNS OUT! Look how Spirng-y us gals at the studio were looking

Thursday

IMG_6977

A much needed beer sesh with a much missed babe; I haven’t seen Harriet that much over the past month but we finally managed to have a good beer and impromptu wine drinking sesh.  On my way home, I passed this chap:

Sometimes on a Friday I like to script from home and this Friday it turned out to be an excellent choice because I was able to script in the garden on a bloomin glorious day.

Saturday

IMG_6940

On Saturday, Danny and his girlfriend, Skylar, came over for a BBQ and it was glorious. Will got pretty excited about his “waggly meat” and even more excited to christen the BBQ with a cook up!  MANY MANY beers were drunk. Oops.

Sunday

Today Will and I went on a brunch cruise around the Toronto Harbour Front on Lake Ontario. The weather was a  mixed bag but it was nice to do something different and I enjoyed my afternoon at sea (not actual sea…but a really big lake counts, right?)

IMG_6975

Also being by the water means being able to hang out with these babes!

IMG_6974

A moody picture of the city to end the week! But fear not, I’m most jolly! Will and I have just bought the new Radiohead album, A Moon Shaped Pool, so we are getting into that RIGHT NOW.

HERE is a video of the cruise!

My Week In Pictures 25th April – 1st May 2016

I am feeling like a weird imposter as I am having to write this on Will’s computer as I left my laptop charger at the studio, which is very annoying as I can’t get it until Wednesday and that means I can post an adventure vlog today! Boooooo! Anyway, luckily I can still write my blog, so let’s talk about this jolly old week.

Monday

IMG_6903

On Monday evening Will and I went to a bar that does great beers with a couple of friends we have made here. They even have cask ale, which is kind of rare in Toronto. Cheers!

Tuesday

IMG_6901

On Tuesday I got a free lunch, which excited me no end (those of you that know me will understand!). A new company called Feast is delivering food across the cities core and they came into my office on Tuesday Lunch to give us a taster. I had a delicious Kashmir beef curry with lentils.

 Wednesday

IMG_6906

I finally saw If/Then! I had been wanting to see this show for ages, since it took Broadway by storm. It is a simple story, a bit like Sliding Doors , but it is relatable and has a lovely score. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thursday

IMG_6900

Éclairs and fizz cocktails you say? Interesting! Courtney and I went to check out Nugateau, a new éclair specializing patisserie on Queen West. Good lord they were tasty; the best was the lemon meringue one – which was divine!

Friday

IMG_6905

I love that some days I can script my Top 10 videos from home! On this particular day, there were a couple of sunny spells, meaning I could enjoy my delightful Juan Valdez coffee outside. If you don’t drink Colombian coffee, I wholly recommend it!

Saturday

IMG_6899

So I was working filming videos at the studio during the day on Saturday, but after work I went fabric shopping with Will, which is actually way more fun than it sounds when you get to walk past this array of glitz! I need me some more sequins!

IMG_6898

On Saturday evening I went out with a few of the gals from work. We had drinks here first then went to a bar called Odd Thomas.

 Sunday

IMG_6897

Despite going out the night before, I got up at 7.45am, got ready and went to a bar showing the Leicester v Man U game, as I wanted to see Leicester win the league! Unfortunately it wasn’t to be, but Harriet, Will and I did have a great breakfast and a cheeky Caesar.

IMG_6895

We’re now deeply considering a late afternoon jaunt to Snakes and Lattes, seeing as I can’t make any videos!

Next week I have filming and a Sunday morning brunch cruise to look forward to, which is exciting!

 YouTube

I’m still ploughing away at my own little spin-off YouTube channel, if you fancy seeing what I have put out this week, then click the pic below – this one is a discussion on celebrity culture at festivals and whether it is healthy.

My Week In Pictures 18th – 24th April 2016

This week has been a little quieter as I have been working on my new YouTube channel in my spare time, rather than guzzling a plethora of cocktails. Sacrifices!   Anyway, here’s what’s what!

Monday

IMG_6771

I took some delicious macarons to work, which I am 100% sure increased my productivity!

Tuesday

IMG_6856 (1)

A black and white snap of the newest “studio”, haha! I have been shooting little inspiration vlogs on my bed.

Wednesday

IMG_6860

Work work work work work work (it is ESSENTIAL you read that in the style of Rihanna.) With a love of food as strong as mine, I need to make a bit of time for the gym.  Yes, I am sure you are all a fan of my “Damn Daniel”-esque pink trainers! This little terror is a step machine….

Thursday

IMG_6789

All of the excitement in just one day! I had my hair done – gotta keep these red locks firey!

IMG_6803

I went to Ovest in Toronto to review their new menu and it is GREAT. My review will be live in Toronto Guardian later this week. Meanwhile, you can visually lust at these food snaps! Above is a steak tartare and below is a crazy performative take on tiramisu, made ON the table!

IMG_6859

YUM!

Friday

IMG_6858

Bit of a riches to rags story! The night before I enjoyed an evening of fine dining, and on Friday I had a second dinner of Poutine. Classy. Luckily two fabulous Canadian honeys were in tow and we had a blast.

Saturday

IMG_6850

I went to the park to get some fresh air and I found this little chap sitting around.  Hello little rubber dinosaur.

IMG_6857

On Saturday evening, Will and I went to a friends house, and it looked a lot like this ^^^^^

Sunday

IMG_6862

How to end an indulgent week? With a pizza hut? I wish I could say I was sorry…. but it was nice to catch up on Game of Thrones with a cheeky slice (or 8!)

SO yeah, next week I guess I’ll just eat leaves! (LOL JK).  If you fancy checking out my youtube stuff, then please do!
