It was a great day for internet videos - and both just happened to feature Jimmy Fallon.

The title pretty much says it all.
Jimmy’s Epic Lip-Sync Off
10 whole minutes of Jimmy Fallon, Joseph Gordon Levitt and Stephen Merchant lip-synching their guts out to such classic songs as “Take On Me,” “Tiny Dancer,” “Single Ladies” and “Super Bass”. Epic.
It’s been over a week since I ran in my very first 5K run - Color Me Rad Toronto 5K! If you’ve never heard of the run, it’s you basically get pelted with a coloured corn-meal like substance at checkpoints during the race. You essentially go from this:
I trained for several weeks before the run and managed to cross the finish line in 36 minutes! Not too shabby!
Enjoy more photos from the race below!
Two Beautiful Views of The Toronto Skyline
I was on a boat in Toronto Harbour last night and took these two photos of the Toronto skyline.
Born and raised Torontonians on the boat were laughing at me for marveling a the view, but I still think that Toronto really is a beautiful city.
It’s that time of year: the Canadian National Exhibition (also known as the CNE or the Ex) officially opens today ! In honour of the special day, I thought I would post this video I made last year at the Ladies Learning Code video editing workshop. In it, we talk about our favourite CNE memories:
Don’t mind the amateur quality - it was my very first attempt at directing, recording, editing and mixing a video all on my own. I did it all in one short half-day workshop!
What’s your favourite part of the Ex?
I’m finally getting around to posting the pictures from my trip to Chicago. I am 0-3 when it comes to posting my pictures on time, but at least it’s not as bad this time around.
Ferris wheel at Navy Pier
One thing I had to do was see a game at Wrigley. I ended up watching the Cubs host the Giants (The Cubs lost.) Despite the threat of rain in the morning, it ended up being a beautiful day for a ballgame. And yes, I did rock a Jays hat.
Before the trip, everyone kept telling me that I had to try deep dish pizza. A friend recommended Lou Manalti’s to me, and even though I was skeptical at first, I decided to give it a try. When we got to the restaurant, the wait was already an hour and a half. The strange part was that the wait didn’t seem to bother anyone! I was going to leave when a server brought out some samples of the thin crust pizza. Once I tasted the samples, I knew I was going to wait, no matter what. It was delicious!
Soldier’s Field (home of da bears) is beautiful!
The Bean was even better in person. No matter where you stand, you can see the beautiful skylight reflected back to you. It was neat watching all the tourists (myself included!) take their pictures underneath the famous landmark.

The Famous Chicago Theatre
Beautiful buildings are everywhere in Chicago. It’s an absolute architectural wonder. I highly recommend the Architecture Tour put on by the Chicago Architecture Foundation. It’s definitely the best way to view the city and the buildings.
And of course, no trip to the Windy City would be complete without a trip up the Sears ( aka Willis Tower).
The trip was amazing. I now understand why everyone usually is quick to cite Chicago as one of their favourite cities in the world. It’s definitely one of mine. If you want to see the whole set here, you can see them here.
I know, I know, I am terrible at posting pictures from my stadium trips. But now that the Giants are now World Series Champions, there is no better time to post my pictures from Wrigley!
