Gifts for the Yummy Mommy

If I were a yummy Mommy, I would of course want the best of everything for my babe. A classy stroller to make a maternal statement when walking the city streets, a cute and cuddly outfit for showing off the offspring, a practical-but-not-obviously-a-baby bag to keep all the necessary accoutrements organized, a modern monitor to ...

Iegor Auction House – Montreal’s Church of Fancy Things

A few years ago, a friend asked me if I wanted to attend an auction. I immediately thought of the livestock auctions that my father would bring me to when I was a kid. I remembered the smell of animals, dust and hay. I liked to tag along to hear the auctioneers and to see ...

So long Summer, Hello Fall!

I don't do well in extreme weather, so the arrival of Fall is always an exciting time for me. In my excitement for the change of seasons, I already swapped my Summer and Autumn wardrobes last weekend. Pulling turtlenecks, thick sweaters, long skirts and wool pants out of storage, to me, is like reuniting with ...
