My VIP Weekend At Toronto!

I won't write a detailed and picture-heavy post about my trip because most of the pictures will be in my February in Pictures post anyway, but I will sum it up for those of you who are curious.

François and I in the plane

My boyfriend, my friends Yanick and Fred and me flew from Montreal to Toronto at 1:00 on Friday the 3th with Porter and we arrived at the Billy Bishop Airport around 2:10, where Tiffany from the Just Dance team and the very lovely Monique from Bravery Productions were waiting for us to do a quick interview in the limo on the way to the hotel. I was sooooo nervous, it was insane!

Yanick and I partying on the bed! Drunk? Nooooo...

Then they dropped us off at Hyatt Regency Toronto and we were free for the night so we ate at a random sushi place and brought some alcohol back to the hotel to party before going clubbing at XS Nigthclub. It was not the best club we have been to but I guess we chose the wrong night because we've been told that Friday are Asian Night and we felt sooooo out of place LOL!

Saturday morning, the limo picked me up at 8:45 at the hotel to drop me at H&M for a shopping spree with my personal stylist Darren and Monique and her cameraman. It was a very unique experience and what made it even more special is that I had never stepped foot in a H&M before!

At the CN Tower

The limo brought me back at the hotel at around 11:00, then my friends and I spent the day wandering around the downtown and we went to the CN Tower (I did not enjoy that, I was scared LOL!).

Partying at This Is London

At night, we went to This Is London (which has been recommended to me by the very lovely Cheryl) where we had a private booth right on the dancefloor with bottle service - it was awesome! Sadly, we were already back to Montreal at around 2:10 on Sunday.

I know lots of you lovely ladies were quite impatient to see what I bought at Toronto but the truth is that I have not really been shopping except for my shopping spree at H&M. I guess you know what it is to shop with guys... But of course I could not resist having a peek at LUSH in the Eaton Centre.

I'm really getting more and more interested in LUSH products, but I try to refrain myself from buying too many things because my LUSH stash is overflowing. However, I think their bubble bars is among my favorite items from them, and you know, I had to spend some of my prize money!

Magic Mushroom Bubble Bar $5.95 for 100g This is the only Valentine's Day product that really interested me because I'm a sucker for sweet and fruity smells, and this strawberry and vanilla scented cutie is a perfect mix of the two!

Ma Bar Bubble Bar $7.95 for 100g Chocolate and honey, yum! Yes, the brown sugary thing in the centre is really a lump of brown sugar - I tasted it!

Creamy Candy Bubble Bar $7.25 for 100g I have been recommend this product numerous time because I have dry skin, and I was delighted to learn that this is actually a combination of bath melt and bubble bar! It contains chunks of coca butter to moisturize and it smells divine!

No Drought Dry Shampoo Free sample It's actually the first time I received a free sample with purchase at LUSH and I'm glad I get to try their dry shampoo! At $12.95 for 130g, it seems a little pricey to me for a dry shampoo that comes in a simple squeezable bottle which is surely not the most convenient to use so I was not sure if it was worth it, but I can't way to try this sample!

And here's what the very lovely Monique and Darren helped me pick out during my shopping spree at H&M:

Cropped jacket $24.95 I fell in love with the color as soon as I saw this jacket, and I love how stretchy it is. I think it wil be great to brighten up any dull outfit.

Blouse $14.95 I've been a blouse like this for some time. I love how it is loose at the top yet a little more cinched at the hips.

Leopard print dress $29.95 When Monique spotted this leopard print tunique/dress, I knew I had to have it! In fact, I even wore it the same night to go clubbing at This Is London!

&Sqin Jeans $49.95 I have always wanted destroyed jeans, and I was actually surprised at how well these fit because I usually go for skinnies and these are slim legs. I also love the dark wash - it was definitely missing in my wardrobe.

Another thing I was firmly decided to get was the whole Chocomania range from The Body Shop but I was incredibly disappointed by the fake chemical scent of the body butter - not the quality I'm used to from The Body Shop! Very disappointing indeed ):

 It was a wicked weekend, thank you so much Ubisoft and Just Dance! =D
