    A La Carte.. Maps!

    As you all know, I moved to LA 3 months ago and have really spent a lot of time looking for all the cool spots, fashion secrets, best french macaroons and of course the best dog parks! The only reason I have learned to be so resourceful is because of the spring I spent in Muenster, Germany or the summer I spent in Manila, Philippines and the seasons I spent in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Tokyo, Hong Kong… and so many other places! This is just a great idea! I love this :). I also love superfuture.com – They beat any map you can find in a gas station… Knowingt his kind of insight takes a special skill, one of keen observation and a kittens curiousity.

    Holiday Work Visa

    There is always in influx of students and young people traveling to Toronto with Holiday Work Visas. With their travels, they bring fresh trends, new cultural learnings and a few international slangs. At the Hello Kitty x MAC party, I met Mayuu and her crew’s style is just fly. Check it out:

    AND… If you want to get out of Toronto and see what you have to offer the world, pick up a SWAP Working Holiday booklet at any Travel Cuts. This is a great alternative to those who want to travel but do not necessary go the ‘teach English’ route. According to their brochure, 84% of SWAPPERS find work within 7 days of arrival of their destination. If you haven’t been able to find work in Toronto for a while, maybe a change of L”attitude” will do you some good.

    This program is available to Canadians 18-35.

    Imagine traveling + working in:
    UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Japan, China, Brazil, South Africa, Thailand
