Insta-Monday: Globe Style Advisor, WSW Shop Local, GoT Exhibit & More

Happy Monday everyone!

This morning I'm introducing a new weekly series on SummerxSkin called "Insta-Monday". As a blogger and social media manager in one of the busiest cities in the world (Toronto), I have the opportunity to meet really cool people, attend fun events and sample new and interesting products. While I can't blog about everything that happens in my daily life (I really wish I had the time), I've been trying to think of a way to archive it all together so that you can get a glimpse, but so I can keep track of it as well. The best way seems to be through my Instagram profile. I take photos daily (sometimes multiple times) and thought it would be fun to share them here.

Of course if I have a boring week and nothing to report (it happens sometimes), then I won't share photos on the following Monday. This is also, in no way, a lazy way of showing my outfits or anything because I'm a believer of high-quality photos. You can still expect a #stylepost every Wednesday. ;)

Here we go!


Listed from top to bottom, left to right:
  1. Spent a day in Oakville and had a lunch with two of my good friends from college, Sara Rozalina and Jen.
  2. I was home alone for the week and had the kitchen to myself. A little experiment can go a long way. Baked chicken drumsticks in a spicy BBQ sauce that I made from scratch. It was delicious!
  3. As a #GlobeStyleAdvisor blogger, I get the advance copy of each issue and share sneak peeks of photos and articles on my social profiles.
  4. Went to Women Supporting Women: Shop Local on a sunny Saturday morning to hear the fabulous Joanna Track of speak about entrepreneurship, how to start your own business, tips and tricks on her success.
  5. At the same event I finally got to meet Mikayla and Nadim, founders of Kona Kare. after chatting online for months. I've been using my sample of the chocolate peppermint natural lip balm butter non-stop since Saturday.
  6. I took Nayme Inc. (Louise and Rachel) as my dates to WSW: Shop Local. We had a great time checking out all the vendors and networking.
  7. Don't know if I've mentioned it before but I'm a BIG nerd and absolutely love the show and book series Game of Thrones. I got to check out the Exhibition at Design Exchange in Toronto and took tons of photos. Dragons were present at the venue.
  8. It was really cool to see all of the actual set props... this is a collection of some of my favourite ones.
  9. I got to sit on the Iron Throne... I regret not taking it home with me, hehe. :(
As always I appreciate your feedback. Feel free to let me know what you think about Insta-Monday!

    1. Hi Maria! Thanks so much. Love your blog and I'm looking forward to reading it on the regular!

  2. Love this! Great idea to capture everything. I know what you mean sometimes it can be overwhelming to write about everything! I wish I could have made it to WSW Shop Local - I just had too much going on this weekend and still wanted to fit in family time :)

    1. Hi Elaine - nice to see you here! :)

      It definitely gets overwhelming, there is only SO much you can write about so I think this idea will work well. I am going to encourage others to do the same, it'd a great way to recap the week.

      Haven't seen you in a while but I'm sure we will bump into each other soon! And I got your e-mail, will reply soon, promise. :)


  3. Love this idea- and I already follow you on intstagram so I see you are a busy girl! I get major job envy!

    Looking forward to your instagram updates!


    1. Thanks. Feel free to use it if you like. :) I definitely plan on doing more Insta-Mondays after fashion week.

  4. This is a great idea! I don't use Instagram so I'd love to see your photos here. Those chicken drumsticks sound yummy!
