Where To Eat:

Spring is finally here, and in Japan spring is considered to be a special time that’s called ‘Sakura‘ or the cherry blossom season. In celebration, Miku Toronto has released a special edition Sakura Aburi prime fixed menu that’s available for a few more days only. This exquisite four-course meal is not only a next level dining experience, but every course is served with a sake pairing. Click HERE to view the menu and book in your spot while you still can.

Where To Shop:

Made INLAND returns this weekend in Toronto for your chance to shop some of the best up-and-coming contemporary Canadian brands on the market right now. If you happen to be in the market for new jewellery and accessories, don’t miss our recent post on the 12 Canadian accessory brands that need to be on your radar.

What To Do:

ICYMI, William Ashley has officially opened their new store on Bloor Street in Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood and we can confirm it’s glam AF! From Hermes to Versace, this is what homeware goals were made of. If you find yourself in the area this weekend, do yourself a favour and stop in to browse (and maybe even buy!) anything and everything in the store.

What To Try:

Our go-to local steam facial and bath salts brand, Gold Apothecary, has teamed up with Toronto’s first drop-in meditation studio, Quiet Company, to create a custom Citrus & Sage soak blend that comes with a rose quartz and clear crystal for ‘added intention and healing’. Click HERE to shop the soak collab now.

What To Know:

What’s better than French skincare? Honestly, nothing and we’re obsessed. The luxurious natural bath and body line from Aix-en-Provence, Bastide, has just launched the brand’s first beauty counter at none other than Holt Renfrew, right there in Toronto. We had the pleasure of seeing the launch of the new space at Holt Renfrew Yorkdale, and all we can say is that we know you’ll want to see it too.

What To Make:

Are donuts your weakness? Yeah, ours too. Which is why we were instantly intrigued by the No-Bake Lemon Poppy Seed Glazed Donut Holes by food-blogger Alison Wu. Although we have not yet had a chance to make these ourselves, they look pretty damn good and the weekend seems like the perfect time to try them out, no?
