San Francisco to Toronto: I’ll Be Right Back

Published in: Just For Fun, News

Makeup and Beauty Blog Heads to Toronto!

Just a quick dispatch from somewhere over California, ladies! This morning I’m off to Toronto on a top secret beauty mission. I can’t really share any details yet (even though I desperately want to!), but I can say this much: COOL!


It’s just a brief trip, and I’ll be back in the Bay soon. Of course, I still plan to blog while I’m away because, well, that’s what I do. πŸ™‚

Stay tuned… Adventure awaits!

    Good luck with your secret mission!

    Yay! I’m in Toronto…too bad your on a top secret mission, I’m sure you have a ton of followers in T.Dot who would have loved to meet up! Perhaps next time….
    Toronto is a great city, hope you’re staying for a few days and get a chance to see the sights. Check out Bloor Yorkville shopping and Queens St. is also fun. A few worthy malls are Yorkdale or the Eaton Centre…both accessible by transit or short car ride from downtown. Don’t let anyone drag you to Vaughn Mills Outlet Mall though, not worth the trip IMHO.

    Best, Lisa

    • Karen says:

      Thanks for the 411, Lisa! Unfortch this time it’s a quick trip… I’ll be leaving on Friday morning. Hopefully I’ll be able to come back soon, because I need to hit all the good shopping spots and find the best poutine in the city.

  12. Josie says:

    Toronto girl here too! Its raining today but its still a beautiful and amazing city! Can’t wait to hear about your top secret mission here and hope you enjoy your stay! And just like Astha posted, get yourself a coffee at Tim Horton’s (or even try the Ice Capps) and you have to try a poutine which is fries, gravery, and mozzerella cheese! MMMmmmmhhhmmm!

  13. shiny says:

    we’ll recognize Karen immediately from the fabulousness, doesn’t she know that! πŸ˜‰ anyhoo, check out Brar’s – Indian food close to Pearson airport – great place to eat.

  14. Christine Tansingco says:

    Hi Karen,

    Welcome to Toronto! Hope you enjoy your stay here….curious though about your secret mission. Hope you enjoy our multi-cultural city – the Filipino community is big here…we’re glad to see one of our own making influential strides in the world of makeup and beauty.
