Merry KardiPOP!

Last night, my dad and I headed downtown to the Thompson Hotel’s Rooftop Lounge for KardiPOP, Kardinal Offishall‘s annual Christmas bash. It’s always a great time, but this year was better than most.

I’m at a point where people know me à la carte – as opposed to just as my parents’ kid – so I have more opportunities to talk to people and not be the most uncomfortable person in the room. I mean, I still had my moments. I literally passed out four separate times because my shoes were hurting me in an extreme way. Maybe it’s time to retire my Steve Maddens, because that was uh…y’know, a bit much. But I had a great time, and the view of the Toronto skyline was stunning. Definitely feeling a little more in the Christmas spirit now. Finally!!

It’s also always fantastic to have a good night while also supporting a deserving charity. All funds raised from donations and auction items went towards his goal of again sending 10 children to Kenya (with 30 Elephants & Me To We) to learn about their culture, do some good, and come home to share about their experiences. It’s a great cause and makes you feel like you’ve accomplished something by attending a holiday shindig. Great times with even better friends!

I didn’t drink at all, but I’ve been nursing a hangover headache all day (weird) so I’m just gonna leave y’all with some sick pics and call it a night. Hope you’re all enjoying the holiday season as much as we are!
