October in Review | K-Pop, Fashion, Spooks and Sugar Highs

October in Review | K-Pop, Fashion, Spooks and Sugar Highs

Hola D-Rex readers,

October has finally come to an end and it’s time for our regular recap of the great stuff we covered last month.

So what’s been going on? Fashion Week, Halloween and Korean pop stars were in the mix. Sound random to you? It does to us as well! This month had a lot of good surprises.

For those who know us, Karl and I are pretty easy-going and have many interests that span the arts, food and lifestyle that make up our diverse city. I’m sure other young professionals can agree – there’s something for everyone in Toronto. We both only moved here two years ago and can attest to the amazing variety we find.

It’s officially been 6 months since we started at this blog seriously. Woohoo! All the great strides we’ve accomplished to date are thanks to you readers and your support.

Feel free to flip us an email with your thoughts/suggestions on our work. Also, check out our Facebook and Twitter to leave your comments and see what shenanigans we’re up to next.

Now onto the recap! We know you guys love photos so here are our favourites we took during October…

I waz at the Dragonette show! so sick!


Thank you very much Aja. Nice to see you here. And elle s’ennuie, thank you too. And alo. I’m trying so hard to not use exltomacian points (!) Ya I wanted to do a new pocket. It’s the buttons that make me crazy, they are really nice. I think it’s ok if it’s showing wear especially nice green stuff. They do clean up pretty well and can take a pretty heavy duty cleaning. I love to hear bag updates! I think the totes you have of mine may have the best life of any that have gone out into the wilds of the world. I can’t even believe all the endless- here is a butterfly, here are some deer, here are flower and flowers and more flowers, oh here is an abandoned castle. Bit jealous!
