mission impossible - ovo fest

after missing ovo fest last year due to a mixup on ticketmaster's end (you can read about it here), i was determined to attend the fifth annual ovo fest held this past weekend.
once again, i was unsuccessful in getting tickets at the box office as they sold out so quickly.
my sister and her friends were able to obtain tickets from scalpers the day of the show last year, so my cousin and i decided that was our best bet.
big mistake.

we arrived at the venue a couple hours before the show was to begin and were instantly approached by people selling tickets.
long story shot - these fools were trying to sell tickets with a face value of $60 for $300.
my last name is not hudgens or williams, so that just wasn't going to happen.
we decided to wait it out until the show started as tickets tend to go down in price once the event commences.
show time was at 7:30 pm, so at around 7:45 pm we went back to the scalpers and asked them what the tickets were going for.
they had the audacity to say $500.
and with that, our dream of attending the fifth annual ovo fest was shattered.
bandidtas denied entry :(

we were on our way out of the venue when i saw someone from drake's entourage.
before i could even point him out, tania was already running towards him requesting a photo.
normally, i'm not one to ask celebs for photos but hell, i was already there, so this gem was taken:
can someone please explain this hand gesture to me?

tania really wanted to get him to relay a message to shay mitchell regarding the last episode of pretty little liars but he said he had to go as he was waiting on his dad.
she'll survive.

since we were already close by and as it was on our summer to-do list, we decided to pay ripley's aquarium a visit instead.
naturally, photos were taken while on our walk...

it was my first time visiting ripley's or any aquarium for that matter and i thoroughly enjoyed myself.
i've seen a couple fish tanks that i would love to have in my house...



  1. You still ended up having a wonderful time (and looked beautiful!) Love that you ran into someone quasi-famous and didn't have to overspend, I would have done the same darned thing xo

  2. Hey girl! I haven't gone to OVO for the past 2 years b/c of the same issue. It still looks like you had lots of fun. Go easy on the fish tank purchases ;)

  3. Sounds like fun. Great photos. :)


  4. Thanks so much for commenting on my blog love! Loving the aquarium shots. Inspirational! xx


  5. I've heard how popular that fest is and after reading this entry, I'll make sure that when I do decide to go, I'll get my tix in advance. So sorry you guys were able to go, but looks like the day turned out great for you guys. (:

  6. Lovely pictures! :)

  7. Toronto is in the house!! How I missed your comment on my blog is beyond me, but I had to march over to a fellow Torontonian and say hello! I also missed OVO fest and I was sad too, still sad a month later. Keep doing your thing!!


  8. I have never heard of Ovo Fest, but I'm sure it wasn't worth a $500 entry. Sorry you guys didn't get to go. There's always next year!!
