Hometown Hunt: Christie Pits Film Festival

Larkspur VintageToronto is a big city with a ton of things to do and events taking place, and yet, I often find myself scratching my head every weekend or finding out about an event I really wanted to attend after the fact. So Meaghan and I vowed to keep tabs on the happenings of Toronto fun, and she wrote up a list of all the lovely, summery things we could do together. On that list was Christie Pitts Film Festival, an outdoor weekly movie screening that takes place in Christie Pitts park starting July 5th until August 16th. The movies on this years list are pretty stellar, The Birds, Mean Girls, Oh Brothers, Where Art Thou?…to name a few, which I plan to see all of, of course. What could be more fun than an outdoor movie?! I always loved drive-ins as a kid and I’ve been to a few as an adult, but what about those of us who don’t have cars but still want to enjoy a bag of popcorn, maybe a milkshake and some fresh air?! CPFF has got you vehicle-less, park loving Torontonians covered.

Meaghan’s Toronto fun list came to fruition through google searches, but with Eventbrite you can find tons of events going on in your city and advertise your own event right quick. Maybe you can find out if your city is also playing some movies in your local park!

Ballad of Magazine

ballad6 This 1960’s Brigitte Bardot-inspired editorial shot by Micaela Hoo, for the latest edition of Ballad Of Magazine – “Summer of ’63” Issue is for lack of better words (and tired brain), adorable and dreamy. Model Tate Moore looks like a little china doll in her own right, and styling/hair & makeup by Erin and Mich adds to this whole “dollhouse” vibe I am feeling. It’s like Barbie came to life and is hanging out in The Oakland Hills at the historic Claremont Resort and Hotel. All the ladies who were involved in this shoot work pretty magically together, and I’d love to see more by them!
