Indigo Toronto opens American Girl Boutique!

If you have a little girl then this post is a MUST READ!!!

Indigo Toronto in the Yorkdale Mall just opened it's first ever American Girl Boutique. They have 3 doll lines to choose from:

My American Girl- Recommended for ages 8 and up. This doll is 18'' long and you can customize everything about her from skin tone, eye colour and hair colour. You can also buy clothing, accessories, pets and furniture. Not only is she a friend in real life but you can also bring her to life on line as well.  Price is $125

Girl of the Year- This year her name is Isabelle. Recommended for ages 8 and up. She is also 18'' long. You can't customize her like "My American Girl" but you can buy clothing, accessories and furniture for her as well. You can buy her on her own for $125 or with the book for $135.


 Bitty Baby- Recommended for ages 3 and up. This baby doll is like the "My American Girl" where you can choose the skin tone, eye colour and hair colour. She is 15'' tall. She comes with a book and a sparkly wishing star. Great for any little girl who likes to play Mommy! Price is $80

The boutique also has a Doll Salon where you can have your doll's hair done and also get her ears pierced.

I know these dolls are pretty pricey but really it's a keepsake item for sure. Also, the quality is amazing so you know they will last a long time. If I ever have a girl I am definitely getting her one!!

Michael Kors Purchases

Last weekend my husband and I went out for our last date night before our second child is born. It was a great night to sit back and relax and not have to worry about a toddler freaking out at the table. We actually made pretty good time getting to the restaurant and our reservation wasn't for another 20 minutes so I decided to run into Michael Kors which was just down the street.

I needed a new pair of flip flops and I have been eyeing these for a while now so, I decided to pick them up since they only $39. I love how the rubber sole is so thick and I find them very comfortable!!

Next up I bought this really cute phone case. Sometimes when I leave the house I don't need to bring my purse and I am always running out with my phone in my hand and a credit card. This is something I totally needed! It has a couple of compartments for some money, credit cards, change and my phone. It also has a removable wrist strap.

Elmwood Spa

Looking for a relaxing afternoon with a girlfriend or a romantic day with your significant other? If so, I would check out Elmwood Spa in Toronto which is considered one of the top 5 spas in Canada!   The Spa recently underwent a multi-million dollar transformation which now includes 4 floors of treatment and renewal options.
The spa has 2 restaurants, a juice bar, 34 treatment rooms, a swimming pool, whirlpool and steam rooms. All of their services are very reasonably  priced.
Another option that I love is that you can add a 3 course lunch at the Terrace Restaurant for only $29! Enjoy an amazing lunch while relaxing in your robe!
