First Week in Toronto 2015

Hello, how are you all?
Australian Spotted Jelly 

So I was supposed to do this yesterday but, well, I fell asleep. I was asleep before my head even hit the pillow. Seriously - I was tired, like knocked out tired. Since we've been here, we've had rest time but I think yesterday it caught up with me and I was super super tired. Anyway, I'm here now :)

Right. Firsts things first. Our trip so far = :D
I love it!!!
We've done quite a few things and the people here are amazing. People are important wherever you go and it really does make a difference. Here the people are, as I've already mentioned, lovely. 

We've been quite busy since we came and have done a bunch of different things like glow in the dark mini golf, Escape Game, walking around downtown, shopping and also Ripley's Aquarium.

Glow in the Dark Golf
In downtown we walked around as our plans were slightly diverted,but it was still lovely. I love walking and exploring and this way, I got to do both.The Aquarium was awesome!!! I saw a blue lobster and so many other things, octopus, sharks, sting ray, eels, both Dory and Nemo too!! I really enjoyed it :) 

Another thing we did do was go to the IMFDF. May I say before I start to tell you about this, our outfits rocked!! The convention itself, not so much. Like seriously, it was disappointing. We got to the place (thank you to the lovely person who gave us a lift!!) and when we got there we were told to go to a makeshift desk to get our wrist bands. Off we went. The place was rather small and there were about fifteen to twenty stalls (despite what was advertised!). Anyway, they couldn't find us on their list even though we had printed tickets with our names on. So yes, that was the first hurdle. Eventually they couldn't find the person in charge/with more authority so they decided, as we had printed tickets, we could go in -figures huh!

Our Outfits :)
The fashion show was OK but truth be told, I'm not really a fashion-show type of person. We sat and watched the end of one and then decided to explore the stalls. Overall, the whole things was disappointing - the atmosphere was dull and it was not what I was expecting. Pearl Daisy (Amena Kin), a blogger from the UK was also there as were some other bloggers. That was one reason I was there!! I wanted to meet bloggers and other people who shared similar interests to me - you know, since I make things?? Anyway, a makeup blogger did walk past us and I recognised her when she passed us. And that was it.I decided to ask about Pearl Daisy and they told us she had a meet and greet much later in the day but no stall. NO stall!!! So we decided to head home. I did buy two things but other than that, it was disappointing. To make matters worse, I checked my instagram when I got home and Langston Hues (photographer) had been there too!! I missed my chance to meet him! :( 

Fear not readers, it does get better. We shopped, went to the aquarium and played glow in the dark mini golf - awesome. I also did something totally new to me, I played what's called an Escape Game. Basically, we were locked into a place and then, in order to get out, we had to solve clues. It was interesting. I say interesting because it's a game that involves group work and a lot of cooperation. Like seriously, team work. And this meant sometimes I wanted to sit in the corner and wait whilst the group shouted it out because there are often dominating personalities in every group. We, ahem, were told to keep the noise down. Actually, come to think of it, that wasn't the first place we'd been told that!

Yes, wear are a noisy bunch but we still have so much more to do! Have you done any of these things? Did you go to the IMFDF? Have you been to Ripley's?
