Hilton Markham/Toronto Suites

Hilton Markham/Toronto Suites

fullsizeoutput_6e5Do any of you have jobs that require travel? If you’re new to my blog, and me, then you may not know that along with blogging I do also have a day job. I work from home luckily, but usually every few months I have to go my work office which is located in Markham, ON.

First time having to travel since moving to Kingston, and I knew that the Hilton Markham/Toronto Suites was going to be where I stayed. This hotel is stunning and has everything humanly possible to survive.  Our checking was a breeze, we got the pool hours and the menu for the restaurant before we headed out to check out room.

The room was filled with bright lights and marble tiles and black accent furniture. In the living room there was a sink, microwave, coffee maker and a mini fridge.

The bathroom did not have a bathtub only a shower, and oddly enough the bathroom is where we had most of the “negative” experience. The bathroom had an odd smell of urine, that got stronger the longer we stayed. Also, there was no actual shower door, so it was exposed and the water leaked all over the bathroom floor making it impossible to keep dry.

The chef personally came out to greet me and offered me an array of items he could make me for breakfast. We settled on Eggs Benedict which is a personal fave. The fact the Chef took the time to come and introduce himself and offer to make me a personalized meal which he delivered out all on his own was above and beyond. I couldn’t get too many photos as I wound up being almost late for work but can assure you that the breakfast & service was phenomenal.

Upon checking out, we were asked how our stay was. The only thing we really brought up was the bathroom smell, which the Manager offered a lunch for my boyfriend on the house due to that issue. That shows me that they take issues very seriously and aspire to give the best experience to their staff. Thank you to Anna and the staff for taking such great care of us. We will definitely be back!

Summer Florals & Boho Chic

Summer Florals & Boho Chic

Picture

Am I the only one who loves Boho Chic Florals? Not going to lie, I’ve been living for the headbands and cute floral dresses ever since I got my hair done at Organic Salon & Spa. I have been super into actually doing my hair (yay!!) and making my outfit complete from top to bottom!

This dress is incredibly soft, and super comfortable for the hot summer nights. It’s a shorter dress, but thats what makes it great for the Summer! I can wear this to any outing as its so multi-functional. Date night? Yes! Media Event? Totally. Maybe not so much walking the dog.. but you catch my drift. It’s super cute!

Available right now at Bootlegger, it’s even on sale for 50% off!! The designer is Twin Hearts, and it has all the perfect little details. Ruched, V Neck and the cute little ties on the sleeves are the perfect added touch. I am wearing size XS.

Finished off with an even cuter Jewled, Rose Gold headband and the outfit is complete! (Currently they only have Metallic in stock)

And as always, my Bella Beat Leaf tracker which I wear everywhere. It can be a bracelet, necklace, all while tracking your fitness!  ((I’ll be Blogging about this amazing device very soon!!
