Capital Oh hit up Ottawa's Dalhousie Street shopping night, with stops at some of our favourites - Milk, Victoire, Workshop, Canteen and today's feature, Young Janes. We had a friend with us too! Meghan (pictured above) joined us for the night of shopping, snacking and turban buying. Overall, great night!

Any event where there's cupcakes in the shape of boobies is my kind of event. In fact, any event where there's cupcakes period is my kind of event. Hooray for Boobies was a silent auction in support of the Keep ABreast Foundation. Local artists decorated casts of their breasts and they all looked incredible. Quite a few of them went for over $200! S, a starving student, could not unfortunately bid on a cast, however she did win a free sweater! Awesome night. ♥ U Slaysh. - S

Hooray for Boobies!
Last Friday, Sarah and I embarked on yet another day of explorations in this beautiful capital city of ours, and we came across a store called Slaysh. We noticed they had hand painted casts of multiple breasts in the window, so we decided to ask what they were all about.
Turns out, Slaysh will be holding an auction in support of Keep A Breast Foundation at their store on Bank Street, this Thursday starting at 8:00pm. The items up for auction? The painted breast casts, created by Canadian artists! These pieces of art are super cool, and you won't feel guilty for the purchase at all. Great art for a good cause, what could be better?
The evening will be filled with shopping, music by DJ Matt Tamblyn, Slaysh giveaways, refreshments, cupcakes and even boobie truffles - sweet! See you all there! - J

The rich smell wafting out of Ottawa's The French Baker is enough to trigger an intense mouth-watering for baked goodies. With glistening crescents, delectable pastries, and an atmosphere that makes you suddenly feel all chic and Parisian, Julia and I immediately scheduled a breakfast date here in the very near future! - S
As soon as you walk in to The French Baker, you can smell the buttery goodness of the flaky croissants - The Baker's specialty (and Paula Deen would definitely approve). It is a quaint little pastry shop up front, and in the back there is the lovely Benny's Bistro, a perfect spot for breakfast/brunch/lunch. I loved the black and white tile, with primary colour accents - best! - J

Dans La Rue
En route of their fabulous Capital Oh! adventures, J and S take on street fashion and style stalking. The first installment occured on a very sartorial sunday, as the Ottawa Vintage Sale attracted some stupendously stylish shoppers. Delicious! - S
