Hello Again!

{Hello, hello! Finally have the chance to put together a post about my delightful trip to Toronto to meet up with some fantastic Canadian bloggers... What a beautiful event.  Hotel Le Germain in Toronto is spectacular.  I travelled to Toronto with my oldest daughter and we spent the night at the hotel; more on the hotel to come.... }


{I was also one of the lucky ones to have won a complimentary hair treatment from GKHair... I will have much, much more to say about GKHair in a separate post to describe my experience, as I really want to share the details of this luxurious hair treatment with you, and perhaps, fingers crossed, there will be a little surprise for you as well... }



{A huge acknowledgment to the event's wonderful sponsors, GKHair and Delta! The lovely representatives from these companies provided us with great insight and tips and their generosity (i.e., giveaways) was extremely appreciated... By the way, Delta recently started a blog, named "Beige is Dead", which I highly recommend you visit (we all know how lonely it is when a blog is launched) and you can follow GKHair on twitter and facebook for a wealth of useful tips to achieving beautiful hair and hairstyles... }



{And for the stars of the night, Vie from Verdigis Vie and Daniella from Dress, Design & Decor! These women worked tirelessly to organize such a wonderful night for us... every detail was well thought out and I really have nothing but praise for them... they deserve so much more than a few words of thanks... }



{Lastly, I wanted to say how much I appreciated meeting and chatting with all the wonderful women I had time to meet on Saturday... I truly hope we can keep in touch... in fact, I have started to twitter follow, etc a few... happy to make new friends...}



{And on a final note, very happy to have travelled to Toronto despite the additional two extra hours tagged on the drive back due to an unexpected detour from the highway which led my daughter and I to get lost despite a GPS... all to say that I look forward to the next meeting!}



{p.s. don't forget... will be posting about my GKHair treatment soon, so come back again for all the details and perhaps a surprise!  And last but not least, I hope your weekend was spectacular... thank you for your lovely comments and for stopping by... have a wonderful week ahead, xoxo}
