After crossing off seeing Parliament Hill off my bucket list , the Sports Diva did something else that I love doing no matter what city the 30 Plus Teams Tour takes me.
No, it’s not traveling , eating, or going to a sporting event .
Although going to a sporting event is tied neck and neck with this.
IT’S SHOPPING !
My friend and I wanted to go to one of the largest malls in Canada , Rideau Centre Mall , which is located not far from Parliament Hill and right on one of the main streets of the city, Rideau Street.
This mall has three floors, which includes a drugstore, liquor store, and a supermarket .
I brought my Ice Wine from LBCO , which is the Liquor Board of Canada and they have a lot of stores in Ottawa.
My friend and I were in the mall for 5 hours.
That’s right, I didn’t stutter , I said we were there for 5 hours.
Besides the food court, drugstore , and admiring the Christmas decorations , we shopped in some of my favorite stores.
Forever 21, Bath and Body Works , LUSH, Sephora and a new store that’s been added to my list of stores to go into no matter if I’m doing a 30 Plus Teams Tour in Canada or United States .
It’s LIDS, which sells all types of hats with your favorite pro sports team on it.
Being the team sports apparel fashionista that I am , the Sports Diva just had to buy some new sports swag because you can never have enough hats with your favorite team splashed all over it.
Besides at 2 hats for $40, you can’t go wrong.
I wanted to buy 2 more but I can wait and check out the LIDS stores in New York and New Jersey .
Although I did turn down getting my hats embroidered with my favorite player’s name on it for $12.
That’s what team tshirts and team jerseys are for.
After a big lunch of Thai food for my friend and Chinese Dim Sum for me, it was finally time to take our packages back to the hotel.
But first a stop at the Ottawa Souvenir Store.
