Toronto city slickers


   This past weekend I travelled to Toronto with my brother and his girlfriend to attend my cousins wedding. The weekend was filled with lots of shopping, laughter, and of course the occasional glass of wine. 




We stayed on the 8th floor of the Marriott seconds away from the Eaton Centre downtown. Our Hotel had a rooftop pool/ lounge area and we could see lots of tall buildings from our room. 

   
   When I first got my laurel tattoo on my arm, I didn't know what I wanted to fill it in with, I had multiple ideas and I couldn't decide which one I liked better. I ended up leaving it blank for the longest time and every time I looked down at my arm I was annoyed with the blank space inside the floral frame. 

   As I was doing some shopping downtown on Queen street, I walked by a tattoo parlour with a sign reading “Walk ins Welcome”, So I walked in…. 

   I’m extremely basic, I’ll admit it. So of course my new tat had to have dainty lines and even more florals...

   The reasoning behind the word “now” represents many things. To me, it means to live in the moment, to really enjoy the world around you right now. Even if its sitting in traffic, waiting for a cab to arrive, rushing to work … It’s important to take a look around you and breathe. Take the time to enjoy the little things in life. After all, it could be much, much worse.

   "Now" is also a motivator to get shit done. I cant even begin to count the amount of times I’ve said “Ill do it later” or “maybe tomorrow”… My own arm has been so encouraging to me and I’ve been getting SO much done lately. It feels amazing!!

   Toronto has been so good to me and I can't wait to visit again. I would love to live in a big city someday. I'm currently counting down the days until I finish University/College and then I can finally make my dream a reality!
