Garance Dore & Rifle Paper Collection

gdI am incredibly excited at the news that one of my favourite illustrators, Garance Doré, is going to be launching a stationery collection with Rifle Paper Co!

This is great news and I can’t wait to get my hands on it! Rifle produces really high quality stationery. The collection includes invitations, notebooks and iphone cases.

The collection will be sold at the French store, Colette, and online on Riffle’s website. Woo hoo! The collection launches in March.

Picture This! La Tease: DivaGirl & Shop Socials


Hosted by Tamika Auwai & Laura Furtado

Earlier this month, women gathered at the Spoke Club for a night of cheeky fun, health and shopping. Hosted by DivaGirl & Shop Socials, the event was a fun pre-Valentine’s day party.

Guests were treated to performances by P.O.S.E Dance Troupe and High Society Cabaret. Throughout the evening, there were seminars on relationships, nutrition, sex and style.


The Can’t Cook Book

I used to work for Chapters Indigo around the time that Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld came out. It had such awesome design, fun recipes and instantly became a bestseller. I was jealous that it was for families with kids- I wanted it!

Now she’s back with a book that I’m pretty sure you or someone you know could use.

howtocook2The Can’t Cook Book is a book that will hold your hand during the terrifying task of cooking. It helpfully guides you though the basics while reassuring you, “Hey. You can do this.”

Winterlicious at Pizza e Pazzi

IMG_7408I have a bunch of favourite restaurants that I inexplicably haven’t written about yet, and Pizza e Pazzi is one of them.  I was thrilled when they participated in Winterlicious this year!

They make one of my favourite Neapolitan style pies in the city, and have a custom wood burning pizza oven that traveled all the way from Naples. Fun fact: I always thought Pizza e Pazzi meant pizza and pasta. Nope, it means “Pizza and the Crazies.” We stopped in for the $15 Winterlicious lunch.
