An evening in the city!

I am so far behind in my blogging!  These photos are from October 12th when High Heeled Life and I went to Toronto for the True Prep event. 

We went for a walk around Yorkville and stopped in Holt's and MAC for a few essentials then went for dinner in a cozy Italian restaurant....


My dinner was the most delicious mushroom risotto with goat cheese salad!


HHL ended up ordering what amounted to two salads...dear wait staff, please let patrons know if what they ordered sounds like two different things but are actually very similar.


The greenhouse has been decorated for Halloween!


We always stop in at MoRoCo when we are in Yorkville.  It is this adorable chocolate and macaron shop with a beautiful restaurant attached.  We have been there so often the staff remembers us.

Pumpkin spice macarons!  Yes Please!

Pumpkin Spice Truffles!


I love their wonderful little chocolates and cookies!  They come in at least 50 flavours and the staff is very knowledgable and friendly.  We always have a good time when we go in.  If you are ever in Toronto you must visit them or we will meet up with you and take you!

What better way to celebrate such a fun night! 
All good things come in little blue boxes!


Have a fabulous day!
