If there’s one thing torontonians don’t take for granted, it’s summer! Whether it’s soaking up the sun by a pool, running along Lakeshore or hanging out on a patio, trust me we’re all over it! The other day, my friend Jaime and I met up for lunch to catch up on life and decided to check out Colette Grand Café. Colette’s been a go-to for me for a while now and honestly, I can’t see it changing anytime soon! I’ve been obsessed with sea food recently (more than usual) so oysters were a must along with the Poulet Á La Créole & a few cocktails. Check out some images I snapped below of our hang out! Thanks Colette as always for the great hospitality!
What has seemed like such a long time coming, spring has finally arrived and is hopefully here to stay. With that being said, there’s a lot of great things on deck that I can’t wait to share with you guys. First up, Christian Confidential has partnered with Lacoste on their global lifestyle campaign Live Beautifully. Last year, Lacoste and Christian Confidential teamed up to put on the successful Brunch Fixe event and because of the great time that we had working together we’ve decided to team up again. This time around we’ll be creating a 3 part spring/summer vignette series that will highlight fashion, lifestyle & ways that you too can #LiveBeautifully.For the first entry of this series, I chose to highlight the significant role that friendship plays in living a beautiful life. With the help of my favourite parisian inspired restaurant Colette Grand Cafe, I was able to spend some quality time with a few of my good friends. There’s no better way to catch up with your friends than over Sunday brunch and if you’re looking for a place that knows how to do it in style, Colette is the perfect location. Great food, refreshing cocktails (ask them to make you a Jolie cocktail, it’s my favourite), amazing ambiance and excellent customer service, you’ll never leave disappointed. Check out the video that my creative partner Alexander Kim created to give you guys a better glimpse into our experience.
For me, the friendships that I’ve made along my journey have really helped mold the person that I am today. Sometimes life can get extremely busy and you don’t always get the chance to spend as much time with the ones you love. I chose to highlight the importance of not only making time for your loved ones but making that time together really count.I wouldn’t be able to talk about living beautifully without mentioning the importance of fashion. Bright colours, soft palettes and fresh sneakers are the perfect way to welcome the new season. My friends Daniel, Nykeem, Isaac and I really tried to highlight the various ways that you can express your unique style within this series. Whether you’re preference leans towards polos or light sweaters to classic white sneakers or stylish boots Lacoste’s spring/summer collection has something for everyone. With the brands continued commitment to innovation, quality and style, Lacoste is a company that I can always recommend to others without hesitation.I hope that you guys enjoyed the first instalment of the Live Beautifully series as much as we did creating it! Thank you to everyone that helped make this possible, the Christian Confidential team, Lacoste, Deck Agency, Colette Grand Café and my friends for being apart of this initiative.
