Ottawa is growing up guys, and I am blessed to be able to tell you all about it. I was invited to the grand reveal of Venue Twenty Two, The Westin Ottawa’s newest premium rooftop event space on the 22nd floor. It was stunning, the views were breathtaking, the staff was super friendly, and the food was delicious… like, really, really, good. This project was a huge undertaking and took about 6 years from conceptualization to grand opening! Because The Westin is located on NCC property, the rule book had to be pulled out for this one. I have to admit, I never noticed that there was any construction happening to the Westin, this entire time. Cudos to the team for pulling this off with very minimal interruptions. And now, it’s time to PARTY!
Father’s Day is only a few weeks away, and I gathered up a few awesome (selfish and dreamy!) local gift ideas to celebrate Father’s Day in style. I never know what to buy my husband and if you’re in the same boat, you may appreciate these local gift ideas. There are a few items that cater to different budgets, so I am sure you will find something that suits your needs in my list. As long as you actually put some thought into it this year, the thought will actually count! Don’t scramble with a last-minute two-four from the beer store and get him something he deserves (or something you can use yourself!! haha)
The Ottawa Senators are in the playoffs and the capital is buzzing! I’m so excited for the energy in the city when the Sens are in the playoffs. We went to Elgin street a.k.a. SensMile last Wednesday to snap some of these outfit shots and the street was crazy busy! Besides the chirping of fans watching me street style, Kamara and I had a blast in the hot hot heat!
