Stripes For Fall Style

For Fall, I am just mad for stripes. Especially the stripe collared shirts paired with denim pants or with a black skirt which were popularly worn during New York and London Fashion Week. The flexibility of wearing stripes goes along well with any outfit whether it be jeans, skirt or just match a stripe top with a stripe skirt as shown on the black and white outfit on the top right hand photo. Whichever way you decide to wear your stripe, wear it with confidence and style. As for me, I have purchased more stripe shirts mostly in light blue as shown above. I have also purchased the black and white stripe on the middle photo which will go well with my black pants, denim pants or skirts too. Are you inspired by stripes for Fall?

Shopping At The Mall At Millenia

 You  might think this is in Paris, France? Oh no, not at all! When we visited Orlando, Florida this Summer, we went shopping at the super fashionable The Mall at Millenia. It was our first time visiting the Mall and we were so impressed. Every turn was a delightful discovery from major American Department stores like Macy's, Bloomingdale's and Neiman Marcus, there were many American brands boutiques like Forever 21 and major European luxury Brands like Salvatore Ferragamo, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, Prada and Gucci among others. If you wish to take a break from Mickey Mouse, this is the place to visit. The Mall offers an extraordinary experience of  one stop shopping place for all of the World's best Brands right here in Orlando, Florida. It was truly a delightful shopping experience!

 The Buzz around Toronto right now is the LuxInside Exhibit inside the Holt Renfrew Bloor Street Flagship store.This exhibit in cooperation with the French Embassy displays luxury items and their internal composition that was researched and photographed in 3D by Laurence Picot. She choose some luxury items like the Christian Louboutin pumps, Leica camera and the Cognac among others to show their internal composition and how man created these luxury items from their own imagination, design, science and technology.  

Another big event in the City is the Toronto International Film Festival, commonly known as TIFF 2014. This is a gala of over 300 International Films from Hollywood and around the World showcased here in Toronto complete with the attendance of world famous directors, producers, actors and actresses.  My friends and I usually watch a few films that we can get hold tickets off. Most of these movies get sold out easily especially the Gala shows which includes big Hollywood stars like Denzel Washington, Jennifer Aniston, Keira Knightley, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jake Gyllenhaal, among other Stars.

Meet Señor Frog's

 When we were in Orlando,  we met Señor Frog's. He is quite a cool, relaxed and groovy dude that serves really delicious and authentic Mexican food with a fun and non-chalance philosophy on having fun, dining and drinking! Señor Frog's is a chain of restaurants in the USA, Mexico and the Carribbean that has a cool and tropical vibe. The ambiance is very colourful with vibrating music and very friendly service. Arriving in the restaurant felt like we entered an Island open-air restaurant in Mexico or in the Caribbean. We had lunch here on the day we arrived in Orlando. We ordered their beef tacos and their fajitas special. They were both delicious! After our meal, we discovered that the colourful decor provided some fun and entertaining inspiration about the philosophy of having fun, Señor Frog's style. Get to know Señor Frog's right here, right now. 
 Fajitas with mexican rice, beans, guacamole, chicken and shrimps.
 For our appetizer, we ordered their beef tacos which was so tender and marinated in some lemon sauce. This was really delicious especially sprinkled with more lemon then topped with guacamole and sour cream.
 As you enter the Restaurant, we were greeted by the stylish Señor Frog's himself dressed so casually in his T-shirt and shorts. 
Give him Four! 
 Some fun and entertaining quotes from Señor Frog's. I wonder how a drunk person will read all of these? 
Here in my Blog, we promote drinking responsibly. 
 In the Restaurant, there is a tropical Bar and beside it is their own Store selling their own merchandise from T-shirts and shorts. 
Up in the ceiling were these provocative and humorous display of Summer fun! Only at Señor Frog's.

Enjoy the Weekend!

Bountiful Harvest

 I spent the long weekend in Montreal to visit family. Here is our bountiful harvest from the garden of my Sister In Law's parents. We were amazed by the large size and abundance of these tomatoes. We harvested a bag full of them plus some fagiolini (Italian string beans). Amanda, my SIL, turned these sweet and large tomatoes into a tomato pasta sauce for our spaghetti antipasto. She learnt the recipe to make the pasta sauce from her Sicilian grandmother Maria and from her mother. For our main meal, we had barbecue ribs and she made  tomato salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  It is always fun and rewarding to harvest fresh vegetables from the garden then preparing them for the family to enjoy. It is food cooked with lots of love.

 See the large size of these tomatoes.

For our antipasto, Amanda cooked the spaghetti with her homemade tomato pasta sauce. The homemade tomato pasta sauce is organic, healthy, tasted fresh and sweet. My delicious drink is half beer and half Sprite which I learnt from my brother and Amanda. 


Buon Appetito!
