Earlier this week, globetrotting Canadian DJ Alex Merrell launched her brand-new travel app TREC at Toronto’s new The Cloak cocktail bar. TREC, which stands for The Remarkable Explorers Club, is a social platform for frequent travelers. It connects users through shared travel calendars and socially curated city guides. “My biggest frustration has been missing people by not knowing they were in town!” says Merrell, who is TREC’s founder and CEO.
Guests were brought in to a space that was decked out like a classic train car. They sipped on custom cocktails and chatted about their favourite places to hang out around the world—which they could then share on TREC city guides, which showcases the best things to eat, drink, do and places to stay direct from your own friends.

TREC is available for download for iOS on the App Store.

If you hadn’t noticed, it is Choupette Lagerfeld’s world, and we are just the humans who exist within it to serve her—and that includes this pampered Persian’s celebrity father, a designer named Karl. (I think he works at Chanel?) Choupette is honouring our fair nation with her presence tonight (don’t worry, we’re going to the party, we’ll report back), which means it’s time for you to paws (sorry) and get familiar with the cat of the moment.
What a guy. (Image courtesy the BBC)
Today was meant to be some fancy parade (there were horses) in honor of the Queen’s birthday, but a certain little royal stole the show. And we’re pretty sure the Queen couldn’t even mind, because like all of human-kind, his adorableness melted her into a gooey mess.
Prince George had a grand old time today at the Trooping of the Colour—giggling as he watched mummy and daddy go by, pointing at all the airplanes as they flew by, and of course, acing his very first balcony appearance (that royal wave was on fleek, dude).
In a lovely little touch, George was actually wearing a family heirloom today—the very same cream and blue little suit his own dad wore for his first balcony appearance.
And no, Charlotte wasn’t there. Although some lady named Kate Middleton was there too, maybe?
