Recently, we sat in on an industry tasting at a new restaurant in Toronto called FUSE. Fuse is a chic, cool restaurant and lounge with a private dining and event space at Queen Street East and Parliament. The space with exposed brick is large with many views of large flat screen televisions and a huge projector screen, perfect for the sports fan. Our tasting included numerous sample sizes of the amazing dishes Fuse has to offer. Telly and I had a chance to dine at this restaurant previously and we enjoyed it so much that when the event coordinator asked us our opinion on the menu we jumped at making selections for our colleagues to try. Throughout the evening, we listened to the lovely Woodney Pierrea sassy crooner in her own way!
Our meal consisted of…
Chicken & Donuts – Yes. Chicken and Donuts together!! This is a Must Try.
Stuffed Eggplant Medallions
Escovitch Fish Taco
Sizzling Kalbi Beef -The aroma from this dish will catch you and never let you go.
Graham Crusted Brie
Black Bean Burger
FUSE Salad – Includes grape tomatoes, red onions and honey house dressing.
We call this restaurant for gathering with your grown friends. The food is great, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the owners along with the amazing Chef and staff desire to please their guests. The summer season will be great for FUSE as they have a retractable front window that can be opened for city dwellers to smell the amazing Sizzling Kalbi Beef. Visit FUSE at 366 Queens Street East, Toronto.
You may not feel the heat now, but Summer IS coming, and when it does, We dance! After a sweet tropical vacation, a weekend-long music festival is all the soul needs. You can’t help but get excited about the line-up for Montreal’s Osheaga 2016 with Lana Del Ray, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Disclosure, Vance Joy and more that are scheduled to perform. Check out the poster below with the numerous acts destined to perform July 29th – July 31st.
Queen Street West is truly the place for unique fashion. One awesome spot you should check out is High Street, who hosted the LA brand Wildfox recently, introducing the brands latest spring collection. Toronto’s multi-media influencer Casie Stewart partnered with the brand to show off what is in store. It’s cold out, but it’s time to start planning your spring shopping.
Wildfox is not only a fashion line, but a lifestyle brand that promotes laid back style fashionably, in lovely colors and comfortable fabrics as well as fun accessories. High Street Fashion is a bright space, perfectly merchandised for bingeing on the latest lifestyle fashion.
The brand had some beautiful floral dresses and separates on display along with lounge wear and cute under clothes. Of course, the event offered a yummy Candy table…doubt you’ll walk in this weekend and find that, but we had to mention the candy, obviously. Check out images below from the nights festivities!
Carcia here! Telly and I recently spent an evening celebrating one of our favorite affordable beauty brands Wet n Wild Beauty. We were given the opportunity to grab a vast amount of product from the company to try out and we want to share our haul with you! It’s crazy to see how Wet n Wild has really taken on some great products such a primers, setting sprays and more while keep the price lower so everyone has a chance to try. Check out our video below and let us know if you are trying any of these products yourself!
When we started blogging 4 years and 8 months ago, the first person who took us seriously was Gail McInnes, a Glasgow-born, Toronto publicist who has worked in Fashion for over 18 years! Gail is the owner of the publicity agency Magnet Creative, co-owner of the fashion showroom, Stylist Boxand a Fashion insider and mentor. As we do every once in a while, we stopped by the lovely editorial showroom Stylist Box to visit with Gail, but this time, we took our cameras with us.
We discuss her up-bringing, her determination to make it in Canada and we break down branding! This is the interview for those that want to pursue a fashion career or for those who seek to be inspired. Gail has already achieved so much, and there is much more to come! Enjoy another episode of #TR!
Indie pop recording artist Sean McVerry is a recording artist out of Brooklyn, New York. He creates well thought music with a mixture of folk and electronica. His sound is truly unique. When we first heard his music through our office speakers, we immediately started talks to feature him on HerCastleGirls.com. Our favorite track right now is Kerosene. We HIGHLY suggest you add him to your playlist. Sean is currently on tour, but he made time for us and our random questions.
If there is any place in the world that you could go, where would it be and why?
Ireland. I haven’t been yet, and I supposedly have a bunch of family over there. I’ve always had this very romantic vision of this “homecoming” scenario where as soon as I step off the plane (or boat?, usually have a boat in my head for some reason) I’ll be greeted by like, one hundred and fifty McVerrys waiting for me with Sheep dogs and barrels of whiskey. On top of that, I’m inspired a lot by architecture and have always wanted to visit the trinity college library (google search that right now).
When it comes to Netflix, What have you been binging on recently?
Like the rest of the free world, Making a Murderer. I’m putting Dean Strang on the guest list when we hit Madison, Wisconsin on this tour.
Superman or Batman? and Why?
Never was a big DC comic guy tbh. I’m going to go with Batman, although in reality he’s just a rich dude with a lot of expensive toys. Same could be said of Iron Man I guess though? I like Iron Man. I’m not sure, I’m conflicted on this. Batman though, Batman for sure. Better villains in Batman.
Would you prefer to be smart or happy, and why?
DEEP. That is a very good question. I’m inclined to say smart? I feel like If I was just happy I wouldn’t be able to write any music with emotional depth. Then I suppose I would never feel satisfied with what I was creating since satisfaction is a branch of happiness? This is another Batman v Superman question. It’s kind of like an Of Mice and Men situation. I could be George and see the truth in the world and carry that weight with me, or I could be Lennie and be just a big affable idiot. Lennie ends up in a ditch, so let’s go with George and smarts.
In regards to your latest release, which track or tracks should we have on repeat right now?
I mean, the whole thing is only clocking in around eleven minutes in length so I’m going to say rock the whole EP, live a little!
