On November 3rd 2016, Hudson’s Bay x Saks Fifth Avenue kicked off the holiday season with an incredible window unveiling. This is the first time such an event takes place at the shared entrance to Hudson’s Bay and Saks Fifth Avenue at CF Toronto Eaton Centre.

In addition to the special appearance of John Tory, Mayor of Toronto, Richard Baker, Governor and Executive Chairman of HBC, Jerry Storch, CEO of HBC, Liz Rodbell, President of Hudson’s Bay and Marc Metrick, President of Saks Fifth Avenue, perhaps the most exciting of the evening was the special music performance by the legendary Mariah Carey! Wearing a gown by Anna Maier, Mariah performed two holiday hits that evening before the unveiling ceremony.
Hudson’s Bay’s iconic holiday windows include five distinct windows along Queen Street. Inspired by the spirit of an Enchanted Forest, the windows portray scenes of a winter wonderland filled with 34 hand-sculpted, cheerful holiday animals, with over 350 sq ft of LED walls to enhance each vignette.

On the other hand, Saks Fifth Avenue’s holiday windows take audience to a Land of 1000 Delights – An enchanting landscape of colorful candy and festive fashion. The windows display scenes set in fantasy music boxes, containing hand-painted mannequins twirling atop wind-up pedestals. Each of the nine mannequins wears a one-of-a-kind handmade costume featuring a confectionary hoop skirt made of giant candy canes, gingerbread men, cakes and icing, or hundreds of hard candies, among others.

I had the opportunity to take the latest 2017 Lincoln MKZ for a ride to the beautiful Canadian Rockies past weeked. If you have checked my IG stories last week, you probably have watched my review. The latest edition has many amazing features that speak the definition of what a modern, powerful and yet ‘quiet luxury’ means. Can we first talk about the seat massage function? And the ability to sync your smart phone and answer text messages from there? I am particular drawn by its safety features, which you’re the vehicle goes to ‘park’ itself if you forgot to do so before turning off the engine.
