Yesterday Johanna and I got to live out our high school dream- an epic shopping spree date at the mall! When we were invited to ride the first trip of the #VMshoppingshuttle, aka a charter bus that takes shoppers from downtown right to Vaughan Mills Mall and back home again, all we could think about were all those teen movie scenes with girls bouncing out of shop doors, arms bursting with shopping bags of every shape and colour.
Well, not to toot our own horns (that’s the bus’ job!) but our day was everything we dreamed of- less a few prop shopping bags I’ll admit. The massive floral bus rolled up to 123 Front Street (right near Union Station) to retrieve us, and we were greeted the the world’s sweetest little lady bus driver, and free WIFI (always a blogger perk!) In a short time we were on our way to the mall, and though we got a lot of work done on route we were definitely eager to reach our destination.
As soon as the bus doors swung open we were on our way. As per usual we were on a mission to dig up all the best pastels, and as newcomers to Vaughan Mills (neither of us had ever been before) we had a lot of ground to cover. Favourite spots included Aritzia, HR2, and Chipotle for lunch, and after we’d shopped till we dropped, we got to drop right onto the magic mall bus and zip back home with no hassle.
Is it weird I’m half expecting to wake up without any of my new treasures, only to find it was all a marvelous dream?
