Canadian Tire’s WOW Guide

Archive By April 14, 2016 Tags: , , , No Comments

Looking through Canadian Tire’s new WOW Guide I wanted to jump out of bed and start beautifying my home and space. I had no idea Canadian Tire had stylish rainboots, colour co-ordinated garden tools or cushions that would make top stylists get palpitations. There are two full pages devoted to water guns alone – along with a multi balloon that has me craving a water fight. (evil laugh). The backyard slides, pools and fun toys made me want to grow better grass.

Our Favourite Luxe Top Strollers for 2015

Archive By June 11, 2015 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , 1 Comment

Always top of mind when you are pregnant is the stroller. This year we’ve put together our top strollers for 2015 with luxury in mind.

Luxury Strollers Silver Cross for Aston Martin1. The Cadillac of strollers. The Silver Cross was beloved by our own mothers while walking on bustling urban streets and it’s back with a vengeance in partnership with Aston Martin. And kick-ass wheels (of course). Oh, and it includes a 100% cashmere baby blanket.

Luxury Strollers Young Versace2. Young Versace makes a beautiful carseat/bassinete/stroller system for a child from 0-3 years. The medusa logo is embroidered on the bedding, and the handle features a latte holder. Which you will absolutely need.

Luxury Strollers Fendi3. The Fendi Inglesina stroller line features a shock-absorbing pram and also a versatile foldable toddler stroller adorned with the signature ‘Double F’ fabric. There’s a gorgeous baby carrier as well.

Luxury Strollers Bugaboo4. One of the North American preferred brands has been Bugaboo. Easy to shift, sexy to push and with tons of accessories like umbrellas and jogging extensions, this is a well-priced, durable model. Special editions by Diesel, Andy Warhol and Kaviar Gauche are also available.

Luxury Strollers Stokke5. The Stokke line takes ergonimics very seriously, and the strollers are super easy to adjust. We love the design and how they look as if they are hovering on one bar with your tiny one floating!

Luxury Strollers iCandy6. iCandy is another UK brand who stands behid innovation. Soon they will launch a custom line, and even if you don’t want to design your own, the vibrant colours in the existing roster are spectacular. iCandy also offers limited editions.

Pizano’s Pizza in Chicago

Archive, ROAM, USA By October 19, 2011 Tags: , , , 1 Comment

So I’m in Chicago and am desperate to try a traditional deep dish pizza.  (Proceeded by a major diet).  Walking into Pizano’s I get an immediate sense of nostalgia and wonder.  And the owner chats freely while the pizza bakes (deep dish takes a while).  Apparently, Oprah calls (herself) to order in.  Wow can I pick ‘em.  It was delicious and when in Chicago, I’m not sure I could venture any farther than Pizano’s. (shopping aside).
