I love Toronto and everything it has to offer. Moving from Pakistan about three years ago was challenging but living downtown has allowed me to never feel alone or bored. Every day and every area feels like a new adventure. This series will focus on 5 of my favourite features of a Toronto area. Today I’ll be covering the quaint and ever colourful Leslieville.

Designer Jewellery Minus the Price Tag

I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the hunt for unique and affordable jewellery. Sure, there’s a huge selection at high street stores but they’re not locally made.
