A Day with Cadillac

A Day with Cadillac

Last week, I spend a day with Cadillac to test drive their new 2015 Escalade. Starting off downtown Toronto, I paired up with fellow blogger Catriona of Coco&Cowe (we chose a beautiful white Escalade, naturally) to head north to Lake Simcoe. While the Escalade has a state of the art navigation system, we were given a special route to follow, using a map and old school directions, to which we had quite a hysterical time getting used to. Sadly, but probably for the better, it was not recorded.

I took the wheel for the first leg, bringing us up to The Briars, a lovely resort on Lake Simcoe. It was a beautiful drive and the Escalade was more than comfortable, with every technological luxury one could need. For more details on the Escalade, its features and drive, check out my review on KENTON magazine.

After our return downtown, we stopped briefly for lunch before heading over to the Honda Indy race track. We got to take an up close look at the action in the pit and feel the energy on the track before race day. The best part? Riding in the passenger seat next to pro racecar driver, Johnny O’Connell, as he whipped us around the indy track in a Cadillac CTS!

It was such a fun day, topped off with a fantastic rooftop party in Yorkville to celebrate the reveal of the 2015 Escalade!

The dog days of summer are here… and I am so happy about that! The temperatures have been nice and warm, with many beautiful sunny days. Of course, there have been the typical thunderstorms here and there, but let’s not talk about those. This look was all about sophisticated summer style in a neutral color palette.Continue Reading

A Schwarzkopf Professional Styling Session

A Schwarzkopf Professional Styling Session

Last week, I had the opportunity to learn all about the Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ product line. I met up with Ted Zorzi at Capucci Salon & Spa in Toronto and let him work his magic to style my hair. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’m pretty particular about how I like my hair styled, but Ted was able toContinue Reading

The French California

The French California

My T-shirt reads “The French California, Chill and Have Fun“… duly noted! Summer is the season of chilling and having fun and I’m all about it. I’m a West Coast boy living in an East Coast world, that’s for sure. If this look doesn’t scream it, I don’t know what does. We have denim on denimContinue Reading
