my southern ontario trip: toronto (+one direction)

The next few blog posts will be about my past trips I’ve taken this month, so stay tuned!

On July 9, my family, my cousin, and I left for Toronto (5 hour drive anyone?) My cousin and I waited forever for this trip! We purchased tickets to One Direction’s Take Me Home tour more than a year in advance. Finally we were going the next day!

We arrived in Toronto around 5:30. My aunt’s lasagna was awaiting us. Yum!

The next day we went to Yorkdale Shopping Centre. I was ready to shop…I had been saving my money for the summer and was in need of retail therapy. First my aunt took me to Tiffany & Co. for my late 16th birthday present. I chose the “Return to Tiffany” heart tag charm in sterling silver.

Thanks Auntie K!

Later we browsed through more of the stores and I bought some clothes from Zara and H&M. Got some good deals, especially since Zara is having their huge summer sale. I also was hoping to get something from the Brandy Melville there, but it was packed. It was really stuffy and hard to move around. I really wanted the “Stay Weird” and the “Waikiki” tank, but sadly the store didn’t have them :( As time past my cousin and I counted down the hours before seeing 1D!

In line at Zara!

My aunt took my cousin and I to the Eaton Centre later before dinner so we could go to A&F and Hollister. We were disappointed with the two stores, but I ended up getting a pretty white tank with a lace back from A&F Kids (I fit their XL sizes still, oops) After we met my uncle for a quick dinner before the concert. McDonald’s anyone?

The line into the Air Canada Centre seemed endless. We waited in the line inside the train station outside the arena doors and it was boiling. The line went quick though and soon we were inside! My cousin and I were beyond excited…words cannot explain.

The concert started late, but my cousin kept saying, “You waited more than a year, you can wait another 20 minutes!” She was right. Loved every minute of it. The opening act, 5 Seconds of Summer, were decent, but I was ready to see boys!

My favourites were More Than This, Kiss You, Last First Kiss, and Moments. Guess who wants to attend the Where We Are 2014 Tour now?

*Posting a haul of the clothing/accessories I bought this month so watch out for that!*
