Amex + fall shopping = you in NYC [contest alert!]




With the changing of the seasons it can only really mean one of two things.  1.  It’s getting colder.  2.  (and more importantly) It’s time to revamp our closets!   Yes, it’s Fall and sadly, time to tuck away our cutoffs and pull out our cozy knits.  And though we can’t all just go out and buy a whole new wardrobe, it’s always nice to pick up a few key items to help spruce up our look for fall.   I’m currently lusting over these three magical items:

This SAM jacket from Holt Renfrew:

To make shopping for Fall even more fun, Amex has teamed up with select retailers like Holts, Browns and Hudson’s Bay to give you the chance to win expense trip to NYC with every purchase!

Yup, just simply register your Amex HERE and when you shop at any of the participating stores you are automatically entered to win a trip to the shopping mecca of the world!  I mean, if you’re going to be picking up some things for Fall anyways, why not register?  Every time you swipe is another entry AKA one step closer to a swanky trip to NY with your bestie!

Happy shopping!  Don’t forget to let us know what you snagged.

Our ‘Taste’ from Platinum Dining Experience at Luma with American Express


amex platinum dining


As you probably know, we recently had a night out with American Express for an incredible Platinum Dining experience. The dinner was held in the fancy TIFF building at Oliver and Bonacini’s Luma restaurant. Head chef Michael Wilson created a ‘one of a kind’ foodie extravaganza playing off of all of the food trends happening in Toronto right now.

The appetizers were modeled off of the food truck craze with lobster po’ boys and mini tacos accompanied by delicious champagne cocktails and some mingling on the patio. Once we sat down we went on a food journey sampling all of the current hashtag hits from ramen noodles with fois gras and duck to a fully local 100 kilometre salad to a limousin grass fed steak to a deliciously decadent doughnut to finish.

Five courses and a perfect sampling of different wines provided by and we were not only stuffed full of food but satiated by the cool conversations we shared with our new found friends and table mates.

The entire dining experience was top notch and really reminded me of why I love being a Platinum Cardmember. It not only affords me an invitation to a once-in-a-lifetime experience, like the one I had at the Taste from Platinum Dining event at Luma, but it also gives me the opportunity to get out and explore our city and the world in a whole new way. I’ve been to Luma before and though it was lovely, getting to meet the chef and to go on a foodie journey with him and a bunch of other like-minded individuals was an experience I won’t soon forget.

Check out a little video that we put together to get an idea of what I’m talking about:


I can’t wait to check out Luma again or even the newest addition to the O&B family, America – though it’s so new I might have to lean on my Platinum concierge for some VIP reservation access ;)
