PORSCHE PANAMERA 2017

I can't help but feel that 2017 is going to be the year for big changes and progress!! However, it all starts with a dream.

I've always dreamt of owning a Porsche! Thanks to the amazing team at Porsche Canada I've come one step closer, by getting a chance to check out the 2017 Porsche Panamera. They invited me out to the launch of their 2017 model that is currently being ranked as the number 1 four door coupe in luxury cars!!

Porsche Panamera's brand message shows how courage can take your attitude from 0 to 100 real quick

- courage changes everything

Hardly anything takes more courage than change. Saying  “Now what ...”, even though the status quo is working peRfectly well.  developing your own style, even though being average would be easier -

The Panamera is the right mix of sporty and classic style which is sleek and compact in design. The Porsche Panamera has some cool features like daytime running lights with four LED spotlights, air intakes, wings, door mounted exterior mirrors, extendable rear spoilers, a rear-sloping roofline and three - dimensional taillights.

All these design features underlining the sporty ambitiousness of the new Panamera. A sporty car that fits four people and does not compromise on passenger comfort! The Panamera has an advanced cockpit as well as an high definition12-inch touchscreen display. The touchscreen display is also available to the rear passengers.

One of my favourite features of the Porsche Panamera is the avant grande rims!! There are also various matte black, gold and silver variations that you can choose to customize it with. The Porsche Panamera is packed with power!! High revs, high performance and high levels of adrenaline!

When you build your custom Porsche Panamera there are various colours to select from, my personal favourite is the palladium metallic. I have been dying to find a car that can be customized to a tan / bronze tone. Seeing that Porsche has already taking this trend into account makes it even more exciting to customize. 

 

EXPLORE MY FAVS

SUNDAY COFFEES AT SORRY COFFEE CO

I recently came upon Sorry Coffee Co. during a recent visit to Yorkville for a meeting.

A narrow walk-way from the main-street leads right into the cumberland area. If your new in exploring Yorkville, this area will come as quite a surprise.

Especially because of the sudden transition from a busy city intersection to a serene area. The sudden noise of running water from the fountains gives clear indication that this is an area worth exploring. 

 

THE BEST TACOS AT LA CARNITA

When you've been to a restaurant three times in the same month, there has to be something special about it! What makes La Carnita unique in Toronto is the fact that it's a super urban hip vibe with affordable taco specials on each day. The service is amazing and I've never had a single complaint for this place. The staff is super nice and hospitable.

The Mexican food menu's versatility in flavours makes the options fun to choose from. The daily specials give you a reason to try something new. I tried the duck taco, I've never eaten duck before but it tasted amazing.

My favourite is the Pollo taco which has the right amount of crunch and flavour. We event tried the Mexican colas called Jarritos! They helped since the food was super spicy and flavourful. 

The eatery is sister to Sweet Jesus, both located in Toronto by Richmond street. 

 

CHEZ LAVELLE ICE CREAM & VINO

 

A venue in Toronto is measured by how authentic it is. Chez Lavalle brings this idea to life as it bestows a large rooftop pool and french restaurant on King Street West. The new venue has caused quite some buzz in Toronto with it's involvement into the Toronto Fashion scene as a covetd venue for the run-way afterparties and midnight soirees. 

I had a chance to check it out with my girls and I must say the dinner was totally worth it. Since then, I've visited the venue twice and hope to keep a birthday brunch celebration there. The vibe and the ambience surpassed that of the Thompson hotel rooftop, the other half of the roof-top pool patio venues in Toronto. With more deck space and a restaurant and bar to go with pool, it proves to be a good time.
