Happy New Year from J&K

2 Jan

Happy New Year!

We are both so excited for this new year, and due to the extraordinary amount of excitment we both have; we skipped the long lines, the $100 entry fees, the gin and tonic spills, and the headache of having to flag a cab down home and stayed inside like little ol’ ladies. We know. What?

This is the first year in a long time, that we haven’t strutted our stuff on the dance floor as the clock runs down. Don’t think we’re getting comfortable, because we love a night out. Everything came down to just poor timing, and honestly?..$100+ to get into some okay club, when we would much rather spend that money at Zara (or Club Monaco, Sephora, J.Crew, etc., you get the picture) was just all we could think of when Dec.30th rolled around.

Julie was lovely enough to have me and one of our close girlfriends over for a home cooked dinner, some champagne, and good ol’ Ryan Seacrest hosting in Times Square. We sat down and felt grateful for another year and felt the anticipation of the year to come. A lot of change has come in 2012, and we look forward to sharing all of our experiences with you this 2013. Some of our resolutions include seeing friends and family more often, upgrading our wardrobes, posting and meeting other bloggers, saving up, and travelling. Of course, we can’t forget about the classic resolutions such as “eating better and being fit”, right? Haha, you can expect a bit of that from us as well. Do you have any resolutions?

The new Yorkdale

14 Nov

Hello !

Those in the know, know that Yorkdale is most definitely one of Toronto’s greatest malls to shop in. The best, in my opinion – and with the announcement of it’s $185 million renovation last year, this mall is sure to be an absolute show-stopper come this Friday.November.16th. This mall is home to some our favorite retailers such as H&M, Zara (one of the best in Toronto), Aritzia, The Bay, Holt Renfrew, Tiffany & Co, J.Crew, Tory Burch, the list goes on. Can it get any better? Of course! Yorkdale is expanding and bringing along some of my personal favorite retailers including Kate Spade New York, LOFT, and Anthropologie. It’s been a few years since I’ve lived in New York, but I can tell you from personal experience that I am really excited about not having to wait for my next trip down to the big apple to shop at Kate Spade and LOFT since now I’ll only be half an hour away!

Julie and I are also absolutely loving the new ad’s released by Yorkdale; let alone the slogan “Be Inspired”. Perfect for any shopping trip. These ads are starring Coco Rocha. Not only is Coco one of our favorite models, she’s Canadian! Coco Rocha alongside Sutherland model Maxim Budnick absolutely blew us away in these stunning pictures wearing some of the latest styles by Hugo Boss, Ann Taylor, LOFT, and Ted Baker London.

Julie and I are also really excited about the new Joey’s Restaurant opening up right next to Holt Renfrew! The next hot spot for a girls night out or a martini after a long day of holiday shopping. The expansion grand opening on Nov.16th is just a promise of more to come! Doors are set to open at 6am on Friday, and the first 100 visitors will receive a $50 Yorkdale gift card 🙂
Where can you be inspired on November.16th?

Happy shopping!
