I finally found some time to go through my photos from my trip to Canada for New Years, and I’m shivering just looking at them! A few days after Christmas, Matt and I flew to Toronto, Canada. He had to work on New Year’s Eve, and I got invited to tag along, which was seriously so much fun. We flew into Toronto and then made our way to Niagara Falls for Entertainment Tonight Canada’s NYE Bash at the Falls. The falls are absolutely stunning. It was “warm” as the Canadians would say, but I’m letting you know right now – this was the coldest I have even been in my life. I’ve been skiing, I’ve been in below zero temperatures, but the windchill and moisture in the air at Niagara Falls is FREEZING. I have terrible circulation, so my feet and hands are always first to freeze, so I survived walking around the falls with mini heating packs in my shoes that I purchased from Shoe Hero and gloves… and still bought a second pair of gloves during the walk! Don’t let the little patches of sun peeking through the clouds fool you, it was actually snowing while we took these photos and my lens kept fogging up!

Matt and I were cracking up because we both got US cell service (AT&T) while we were in Niagara Falls because we were so close to the border! Score for us!
Niagara-Falls-Canada-NYE-2015-9These are the Canadian falls! Note how theirs are instantly icier and snow covered!
Niagara-Falls-Canada-NYE-2015-10I love how different both sides of the falls look. The Canadian side looks drastically colder!

Niagara-Falls-Canada-NYE-2015-25While Matt was working I went and bared the cold to photograph and watch some of the other artists perform. I loved watching Lights open the show, she’s adorable.

    I went to Niagara Falls years ago when I was 4? I remember a few things, like riding on the Maid of The Mist! Such a beautiful landmark!

    That looks like on amazing NYE. I am also obsessed with your coat its so cute, I may have to add Toronto on to my NYE wish list and also visiting the falls in Winter, I never thought how cool it would look with a snow covered backdrop. Happy New Years x,

    My two sisters, Mother, and I went on a bus trip to Caribana in Toronto Canada. The boarder check was right at Niagara falls but we were not allowed to get off of the bus. On the way back it was the same scenario, everyone was begging for a 5 minutes peak at one of the worlds coolest destinations but the director of the trip ran a tight ship and wouldn’t let us off the bus. Seeing your pictures reminds me of how beautiful Niagara falls is and that I have to make it back to explore. Thanks for sharing
