#EDITORSNOTE: MR. WILL’S BEST OF 2016
2016 certainly was one for the books. I admit feeling terribly guilty every time someone claimed how horrible the year was when I secretly felt otherwise! Whether it be the amazing Films I saw, singling-out LA LA LAND, which I will say is the one of the finest to be released in the past decade, or songs on the radio - we love a return to strong melancholy melodies - the year gave us many memories to hold on to. And to think we used to scoff at Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars and ...

#SPOTTED: RIZ AHMED IN TORONTO FOR “STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE”
We absolutely are crazy about Riz Ahmed, the English Actor who in recent years has seen his star rise rather quickly stateside. In addition to starring in HBO Series The Night Of this year, Ahmed turned heads in a acclaimed 2014 Thriller Nightcrawler alongside Jake Gyllenhaal. While we have yet to see his performance in acclaimed TIFF '16 Selection Una (which he had to cancel an appearance for) with another of our favourites Rooney Mara, we soon will see him on many screens in STAR WARS: ...

#SPOTTED: ROBERT PATTINSON, DENZEL WASHINGTON + MORE IN LOS ANGELES
We were in L.A. this past weekend and although our reason to visit was the 2016 BREEDERS' CUP at Santa Anita Park, we always make time for the stars. We even met culinary master Bobby Flay at the championship races and saw one of our faves Elizabeth Banks, both Ambassadors for the event.

She performed a festive two-song set for the eager crowd which queued several hours, piling from the two stores' joint entrance to Eaton Centre, to be a part of the rare occasion.
