Guess what folks…

My sunglasses just broke in my purse from my umbrella, which I brought today and never used.

Just keeps getting better!

Time for a rant….

- I had a long day and decided to grab some beer after work from the LCBO so I could have it while I watch the game. LCBO closes at 6 in the Metro Concourse Hall and I get there at 6:04.

- Get on the Subway for what I think will be a quick commute home. 45 minutes later I am still stuck in the subway tunnel. Oh and did I mention that it smelt like rotten cauliflower?

- My poor dog is waiting for me at home to be fed. And with my luck there will be piss all over the place and will have ripped the couch to shreds (as he did the last time we didn’t feed him on time/no one was home).

- Oh and I have a blind pimple on my lip so it makes it ridiculous hard to talk without some sort of pain. AND I’m Pmsing.

I think that’s it for now but I will be sure to update you all if anything gets worse!

Until then…

Weekend at the Ritz!

Sooo I have bragged about this to all my friends and family and have re-told the story of my weekend over and over again but I am going to go on about it one more time in detail (this is probably more for my own memory than anything else.)

Brando and I went to the Ritz Carlton this weekend to enjoy a gift certificate that I won this summer. We were only there for about 26 hours.. but they were the best 26 hours I have had in a LONG time.

First off, we arrive at the stunning hotel and are greeted like royalty from a valet who parks Brandon’s 2000 Honda Accord. We check in and are told to head up to our room with our bags to follow. Little did we know that we were in a SUITE. We had a den, hallway, 2 bathrooms, 3 TV’s (including the TV hologram in the bathroom mirror), heated floor tiles in the bathroom, king size bed, floor to ceiling windows, the Globe and Mail delivered to our door step, Cappucino maker…. and pretty much anything we requested, as long as it wasn’t illegal or immoral - as our Bellman told us.

We toured the spa, pool, hot tub, yoga room and work out facility and were amazed by all the amenities. Oh and did I mention that there were water jugs all over the hotel filled with fresh fruit flavoured water. They definitely kept us hydrated. 

After our tour we got ready for a fancy dinner at Kit Kat which had amazing home cooked style Italian food and the best Long Island Iced Tea I have ever had! We wined and dined in the busy Kit Kat and then made our way back to enjoy some time at the Ritz’ cocktail bar. 

Next day, we woke up to realize we still had 4 hours to spare (thank you daylight savings). Read the Globe and Mail in bed (that was delivered to our room). Drank our Cappuccinos and reminisced about the weekend.

So, thank you Ritz Carlton! You made my month!! This one is going to be very hard to top. And yes, I do accept gift certificates for my positive reviews ;) 

Until next time…

Expectations Vs. Reality

Heading up to the Sudzzzz

Yes followers, I have failed you once again. I haven’t posted in a month, I do apologize. Life is madness as usual. I am still working at Veritas, teaching for my Dad at his studio, galavanting around the cities of Toronto and Mississauga with my new hunk and trying to find time to eat and sleep between all that.
Today I am heading up to Sudbury with the boy, or Sudzz as it is pronounced by all the cool kids.
I just hope it’s not snowing up there. Kiddinggg.

Anyways, I will try my best to post some pics of the fun places I end up this weekend and the cool people I meet.

Until next time,

-Victoria :)

Attempt #2 at my blog

Ok Ladies and Gents. Clearly I haven’t been the best blogger lately, and for that I do apologize.
I was recently hired on from my internship at Veritas Communications :) yayyy. Although this means that I won’t have anymore “Life of an intern” stories for you (Sad I know). It does mean that I will have a whole new set of stories. I have also made a vow to myself to update my blog at least 3 times a week, starting NOW! And I promise to continue to provide/attempt to provide the Tumblrverse with all my findings, stumblings, people watching moments, travel insights, songs, photos and more!

So stay tuned and get on my ass if I don’t update regularly!!

Eventually I will achieve this -

Amazing video my travelling partner in crime posted on my fb wall.
“3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short film”

I wish this was me!
Enjoy :)
