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

A Bite In Queen West

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 ( on Queen West. Breakwich + Coffee = Happy ~ Steve Read Full Entry

Sunday Brunch & The Queen West Art Crawl

September 19th, 2011 | City LivingRestaurantsKing West / Niagara / Liberty VillageQueen West

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

Come Up To My Room Again K?

February 1st, 2011 | City LivingHouse And HomeQueen West

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

January 29th, 2011 | City LivingQueen West

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

New Bosley Digs & The Drake Cafe On Queen West

December 7th, 2010 | City LivingReal EstateQueen West

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 brand under… Read Full Entry

I Love Trinity Bellwoods Park

September 20th, 2010 | City LivingHouse And HomeReal EstateQueen West

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

Stairway To Heaven

August 20th, 2010 | City LivingRejuvenating The Button FactoryQueen West

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

Quintessential Stylegarage

June 28th, 2010 | City LivingHouse And HomeRejuvenating The Button FactoryQueen West

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

Coffee, Tea Or Me Downtown West

April 28th, 2010 | City LivingLifestyleQueen West

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
