Yesterday, I slept late, strolled down the hill for a haircut and then went shopping. It felt like so long since I had a day of nothing. A day when I bought a pretty scarf, just cause. I browsed lazily, indulgently instead of my usual search-and-destroy shopping blitz.
It can colour a day when everybody you meet along the way is happy. My lovely hairdresser. The gentleman who works at the Byredo counter at Holt Renfrew — one of my favourite people in the whole city to shop from. I treated myself to one of the leather travel cases. And the girls at Gee Beauty, where I stocked up on my skincare staples and samples.
Today, I have a bit of writing to do and errands of a more banal variety. Still, my neighbourhood is heady with lilac and mock orange and I'm having a bit of a summer romance with Toronto. There's something exciting in the air. Something new.
