the-rue-collective-thompson-hotel-4Every once in a while I make a point of being a tourist in my own backyard. It’s been four months since I moved home from Sydney, and in exactly a weeks time I’m moving to New York City, so I decided it was high time to cool it on the Netflix and see what else is happening around town.

I’d never been to the Thompson Toronto before so I thought I’d hide out there for a couple days and partake in my favourite hotel activities – breakfast in bed (in response to my Insta comments – yes, there were spills), rooftop rosé’s and a whole lot of bathrobe lounging.

If you’re into views, you’re getting one of the best in the city. Yes, I know, it’s not the CN Tower – but personally I prefer looking at the tower as part of the skyline instead of testing the limits of my acrophobia from within it.

I also feel the strawberry cheesecake pancakes deserve their own personal mention here for successfully ending my carb-ban with no regrets – totally worth the cals and subsequent food baby.

All in all, it was the perfect little staycation before hopping cities again.

  1. I love that striped top with your bathing suit! Is that an actual bathing suit top or a fun crop top? Either way, you look great in it. All of these outfits are darling, actually! I hope you had fun! And good luck on your next move.
