I am officially on vacation for a week and I plan to spend it on my butt, with a book, in the middle of nowhere. Today I picked up a couple used books from Macondo on Wilson Street, tossed ‘em in my bag and I am all set for summer. The guy working in the store even [...]

It wasn’t my idea, so really it’s not my fault. A friend wanted to go browsing at IF…Footwear Boutique on Quebec Street. So I was just following her lead when, suddenly, I saw these adorable BLUE almond -toe mary janes. They weren’t on sale and I didn’t care. Now they’re mine, all mine.
This goes to show you, again, old ladies know what’s going on WAY before we do. Back in the day, and by that I mean any day in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s you didn’t leave the house without a scarf. Around your bouffant, tied around your neck, as a belt… wear any [...]

While you’re on the street, check out other awesome shops like Pretty Chic Boutique and Blush. Come downtown [...]
Right now it’s a dusty, dirty half-built road but I can already picture the new patios in front of my favourite cocktail spots and restaurants.
OK. I know the world is already filled with all kinds of mugs – world’s greatest mom mugs, kitty cat mugs, and of course the matchy matchy mugs that go with your plates. So really, no one needs a new mug. But when I saw all the beautiful local pottery at the annual Potter’s Market [...]
Ask any woman what she hates shopping for, and she’ll likely answer either 1. a bathing suit or 2. a pair of jeans. I went to my favourite second-hand shops hoping to score a pair someone else had cast off, I went to department stores and had no luck. I tried on 30 pairs of [...]
