I saw my first film of the festival today and it started with a bang...kick...punch. Lots of action. I saw the movie Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen (Jingwu Fengyun - Chen Zhen). I like to see at least one action movie in the festival.
After the film I had got some lunch at Freshii. I am trying to eat healthy and avoid the foods that I am allergic to.
I only had one film scheduled for the day, so about three hours until my pilates class later in the day. I decided to wander down to Queen Street West, a trendy part of Toronto with lots of stores, boutiques and cafes. There was one store in particular that I wanted to check out.
The boutique Jacob & Sebastian carries bath products from around the world. I couldn't resist. I walked around the store once to sample the products. I didn't want to spend too much money as it is only the beginning of the festival and I have so much more shopping to do.
These are the items that I purchased:
The Republic of Tea Be Well Red Teas - Get Clean Herb Tea for Detoxing No.7 ($12.95)
Villainess Soaps Whipped Body Creme - Jai Mahal Whipped ($14.99)
Villainess Soaps - Decadence ($5.50)
The Balm to the Rescue - vegan lip treatment ($19.99)
After leaving Jacob & Sebastian I started walking west and noticed the sign for the beauty bar the 10spot. I didn't have an appointment, but I wanted to see if I could get a manicure. I felt like pampering myself. Luckily I did not have to wait long.
I was hoping that I would have time to go to the pastry store Dufflet. They have amazing chocolate tarts. I was going to cheat a little bit. Unfortunately, I did not have time after my manicure. I had to catch a streetcar without smudging my nails so I could get to my pilates class.
