If someone would have asked me to paint a picture (literally), I would say you are out of your mind! Paint Lounge allows you to do what you think you cannot do, from an artistic point of view…and you don’t even need any art skills!
I attended a Blogger’s event at Paint Lounge not knowing what to expect. I left wanting to go back to create more beautiful paintings…I admit I need some serious practice!!!
Paint Lounge is a place you can go and let your creative side out to play. There are currently two locations in Toronto and one in Markham. I visited the location in Toronto East and spent the evening learning about paint techniques from Samantha & Grace. The place is small, yet spacious. There is a café which offers hot and cold drinks along with sweet treats. The atmosphere is inviting and friendly.
I even got to meet some of my fellow Toronto bloggers for the first time! It’s always exciting meeting new people who share the same passion as you, but it’s even more special when you have a relationship with them on social media. If you have not yet already come across their blogs, Irecommend you have a look! Some pretty fantastic bloggers right here in this gorgeous city!
Astrid is this cheerful ray of sunlight from the South of France. Her energy is so addictive!! Her blog Fringinto is a mix of fashion, food and lifestyle. Was so happy I finally got to meet this beauty! Her makeup artists friend was also super sweet! Check our Alek and her beautiful creations.
Rachel is just the sweetest! She had such a warm and inviting presence! It was so awesome to finally meet this gorgeous fashion blogger in life!
I picked Tracey out of the crowd as soon as I entered Paint Lounge! Her bright lipstick is somewhat her trademark in my eyes! Another bright and cheerful girl who’s Instagram posts always makes me smile!
Apart from these lovely ladies who I already had an online relationship with, I met some pretty awesome bloggers. Tienwho is a foodie like me! Jess who has such a unique sense of street style – she also just opened up a shop through instagram @shop.jessundecided! Nick Jolly who unfortunately I did not get to meet – but is an awesome fashion blogger in the city as well! Nav Brar who has the cutest photos and her artwork that night turned out GORG! Sydney who is a fashion and lifestyle blogger – I swore she was a model – such a beauty!!!
I was very fond of the art on the walls. During the night, I learned Samantha and Grace, as well as guests of the lounge and other staff members were responsible for creating these beautiful paintings! It made the space more personal and I appreciated it a little more. What I was really impressed was with how well the staff were able to guide you through your painting by giving you advice and tutorials on how to achieve the look you wanted to achieve.
I am really looking forward to going back to Paint Lounge to further advance on my paint skills! This is the perfect place to do something out of the ordinary and challenge your inner artist! Great place for date nights, bachelorettes, spending time with your family, or if you are just in need to relax and ease your mind.
