HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY SOFIA

 Skirt: Guess; Sandals: Local Boutique; T-shirt: A gift from Portugal
 
Today is a very special day! Three years ago we welcomed a gorgeous baby girl into this world, Sofia Isabel.
 She brought so much happiness into our lives, everyday is a complete adventure. I thought I was here to teach you, but you are teaching me every day, I feel so blessed to be your Mommy.
I just wanted to pass by and share some photos I took of Sofia a few weeks ago. Time goes by way too fast, I can't believe my little princess is turning 3 already. 
Happy 3rd Birthday sweetie! Mommy and daddy love you very much!
Details on her Birthday in a later post, so stay tuned.

VISITING CASA LOMA IN TORONTO


My outfit was very casual since I knew I was going to walk a lot that day. Jeans: Juicy Couture; Shirt; Local Boutique, Sandals, Ring and Pink Bracelet: Guess; Watch: Michael Kors; Necklace: http://claudiapersi.tictail.com/products/necklaces; Sunglasses: www.firmoo.com; Handbag: I bought this bag last year, it's now on sale for $85 @ http://deuxlux.com 
 
Being raised in Montreal there is so much I still have to discover and see in Toronto, so we decided to pay a visit to Casa Loma. A wedding was taking place when we got there, it definitely brought me beautiful memories of my own special day. 
Casa Loma belonged to Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, he was one of Canada's most powerful businessmen, an ambitious financier who became wealthy through bold investments in electricity, real estate and mining.
He helped to bring electric street lights to Toronto and to develop the first Canadian hydroelectric generating station at Niagara Falls. In 1913, Pellatt and his wife Mary moved to Casa Loma, designed for them by architect E. J. Lennox. It was one of North America's grandest residences. Ten years later, the Pellatts were forced to leave after failed investments severely reduced their wealth.
Casa Loma was and continues to be one awesome spot for film producers, as you can see from all the posters in the basement of the house these are all movies that were filmed in Casa Loma.
If you come to Toronto don't forget to pay a visit to Casa Loma. 
For more info and tickets please visit:
After Casa Loma we went to one of my favorite neighborhoods in Toronto, Yorkville and enjoyed a really romantic dinner at an Italian restaurant.  We had an amazing time and the food was delicious.
 
Take care everyone!

RIPLEY'S AQUARIUM IN TORONTO

 
 How is everyone's summer going?  I have so much to share with you that I didn't know where to start. Last week we went to the Ripley's Aquarium of Canada right downtown Toronto next to the CN Tower,  as you can see from the last photo. I invited my mom and my mother in law to come with us, I knew they would enjoy it too and it was just another great excuse to see their granddaughter. 
It was definitely a fun experience and Sofia had so much fun. We were really lucky we went on a weekday after 4pm, there was no line up and it was not crowed but I've heard if you go on a weekend it can get quite busy. The shark tunnel was my favorite part, you also can enjoy some petting areas where you can pet sharks, rays and horseshoe crabs. The aquarium also has really great glass domes inside the tanks that we can crawl into and stick our heads up. Like most aquariums the sharks and jellies were popular. 
They also have a great gift shop & café. I would highly recommend this place for families with kids, they have many great activities for the little ones to enjoy too. Allow yourself around 3 hours to see and experience everything.
Check out their website for info & tickets. www.ripleyaquariums.com/Canada
Have you visited any aquariums? This one was my third, I visited one in Lisbon that I absolutely loved and the famous Atlantis Aquarium in Nassau, Bahamas.
 
Take care everyone!

NIAGARA ON THE LAKE

My Dress: Lori M Collection, Bag: Deux Lux, Watch: Michael Kors, Necklace: Forever 21 and Sunglasses from www.firmoo.com. Sofia is wearing a beautiful dress by GRD Kids from Portugal, Sandals by a local children's boutique and her hat is from The Children's Place.


Hi my loves, first I would like to say I really missed sharing my small adventures with you. Hope everyone is doing great and enjoying the summer. I've been enjoying the wonderful weather with my hubby and our cutie pie. For those of you who have been following me for some time now may remember my last posts from our visits to Niagara Falls.
You can find them here:

Niagara Falls is definitely one of my favorite spots to visit that are really close to my home and any time of the year is perfect to visit. It seems that there is always something new to do and see. Next time I go I would love to visit one of the their wonderful wineries and go for a tour with some wine tasting and romantic dinner. What can I do I love wine and I am such a hopeless romantic so that for sure is on my to do list.
Hope my husband is reading this! LOL
 
Take care everyone and have a great week!
Claudia
