Springing it up at Manulife Centre


We knew Erica Wark from her blog, Erica On Fashion, but we had no idea what a fan she was of Manulife Centre. So when she came to us with the idea of doing her entire spring prep ritual in one visit to our little corner of the world, we jumped at the chance to break out all the stops.

On March 29th, Erica will be spending the day at Bloor & Better getting her wardrobe warm-weather ready. She’ll be showing us what she does to clean out and organize her closet, the can’t-miss 2016 trends and why one visit to Manulife Centre is all she needs.

You’ll be able to follow her throughout the day on Twitter and Instagram. And we’ll do a full recap of what she did and what she found here on the blog.

Until then, here are a few spring prep tips for you to think about:

Check your sunblock situation
Unless you went south over the winter, you probably haven’t looked at your suntan lotion in a while. But now that it’s getting warmer, make sure you’re fully stocked. If you’re running low, you can stock up at Pharma Plus on the concourse level.

Get BBQ ready
If you went to town with your grill last summer, your tools may not be in the best shape. No problem. A visit to Indigo can change that. And while you’re there, check out the new titles in the cooking section.

Think weekend road trips
From Muskoka to Niagara to Prince Edward County, we’re blessed with options in Southern Ontario. If you don’t yet have small luggage options for a two-day jaunt, Bonny Satchels ’n Duffels can hook you up.
