Recently I was both charmed and horrified when a pair of my fab newlywed buyers gave me a gift as a 'One year Anniversary'. As I accepted their delicious sweets and treats (Hello Wine!), they saw a look of confusion pass across my face. I couldn't compute how they had only recently got married… Read Full Entry
Yup, sometimes I start my day with coffee and a Breakwich. This is what it looks like when I have it at The Drake Hotel (http://www.thedrakehotel.ca/) on Queen West. Breakwich + Coffee = Happy ~ Steve Read Full Entry
Okay, so I'm not a Cheerio's fan but I thought this a great pic to chat about Sunday brunch. As a realtor, my action-janet-life-on-the-go doesn't always allow me leisurely Sundays to drink Mimosa's and savour waffles with maple syrup and bacon (Hello? Canadian here!). This is because weekends are often booked chock-a-block with appointments unlocking the doors of… Read Full Entry
If exploring the Interior Design Show wasn't enough fun for one this weekend past, going to the 'Come Up To My Room' exhibit at The Gladstone Hotel elevated my fun quotient even more! After my pals and I toured the ID Show we grabbed brunch at The Drake Hotel (it is… Read Full Entry
Don't forget to catch The Gladstone Hotel's (pics from their site) 8th annual "Come Up To My Room" Exhibition this weekend. Love It! As the official CUTMR website says "Come Up To My Room (CUTMR) is the Gladstone Hotel’s annual alternative design event. This year’s show, curated by Jeremy Vandermeij and… Read Full Entry
I really love the new Bosley Real Estate digs located at 1106 Queen West in Beaconsfield Village. For a family run company going strong since 1928, The Bosley's intuitively know how to keep it fresh and stylin'. It's one more reason I continue to enjoy operating the urbaneer.com brand under… Read Full Entry
This past Saturday I bee-lined it to back-to-back appointments under ominous clouds threatening to rain. From the start of my 10am appointment til my last at 6pm, I was almost of the verge of a nervous breakdown for all the traffic and delays. With the Gardiner Expressway being closed for maintenance and repair, it reeked havoc on… Read Full Entry
Ok, I'm sure you know well by now I'm a product of the 70s, so please forgive the 'Stairway To Heaven' reference on a stair railing blog. It simply can't be helped given 'Stairway To Heaven' is, without doubt, one of the greatest rock anthems ever created! Released by the English rock band Led Zeppelin in 1971, this breathtaking eight minute song… Read Full Entry
I've always been a fan of Stylegarage, the purveyor of crisp clean-lined furnishings. Over the years I've come to depend on them for stainless steel mirrors and smart ambient lighting. They even did a custom stair railing for me...all items I'll post in future blogs.
But those… Read Full Entry
In the 1970's, when you were out and about and craving a coffee, it usually accompanied a glazed donut from Tim Hortons. For the majority of Canadians you purchased this before, or after, taking your kids to hockey practice or figure skating.
Then came The Second Cup and… Read Full Entry
