I started my day today with a morning Zumba class at Bayview Village. The fun and energizing class is run by the women’s active wear brand, Lolë (pictured above), twice a week at the Bayview Village shops location. You can find more meet ups hosted by Lolë all across Canada by visiting their website.

While the one-hour class reaffirmed what I already knew about my dancing abilities (I have no rhythm), it was a great way to start the day and everyone in the group worked up a good sweat.

Afterwards, we rehydrated with a cold iced tea from David’s Tea. I tried Pink Flamingo which was a sweet and refreshing blend of oranges, tangerines and lemongrass. Goji Pop, with it’s hot pink colour and sweet goji berries, was also a popular choice.

Cheers,

News: Where is Canada’s nicest restroom?

We all have our share of washroom horror stories’from a simple lack of hand soap, to a full-on, horror-movie-esque scene with broken stalls and flickering lights.
