It's hard to believe that we've come to the end of another year so quickly.

I want to give a big thanks to everyone who appeared on TorontoVerve this year. Our success wouldn't be possible without you.

Have a safe and Happy New Year!

Lowe's Toronto Christmas Market: Andrea "A Tiny Bit of Funky"

Last night was the perfect night to ring in the Christmas cheer early at the Lowe's Toronto Christmas Market.

Christmas carols played endlessly as families, couples and friends crowded the rustic cobblestone walk. The enticing aromas of cashews, grilled cheese and poutine filled the air.

Christmas lights adorned The Distillery like thousands of beautiful bright stars. Children screamed with joy on the Ferris wheel and merry-go-round. It was a fun evening for all.

Andrea: "My style is classic with a tiny bit of funky."

Cliff: Neo-Victorian Steampunk

"My style is Neo-Victorian with a touch of steampunk. I dress like this all the time and occasionally I'll  wear a British uniform. Generally, I get favourable reaction from the public. A lot of people recognize steampunk. Often, people will pull out their cameras. It's a lot of fun."
