Boxing Day sales aren’t really that big a deal for me. I worked retail for nearly five years while in university and once you’ve worked four Boxing Days, you really do not want to be anywhere near a mall.
If you’re going to buy something that’s on sale, is Canadian and is practical (well.. ) then try these Quill & Tine gloves.
There’s no such thing as a free(lance) lunch is a series that asks professional freelancers the questions you want to ask them. Think of it as having coffee with everyone at the same time. This week: Christopher Turner
Part of my job entails me meeting people and discussing the contributor network. This means carrying some tech with me – my phone(s), a tablet and occasionally my laptop. This means a decent-sized bag to carry it all.
A colleague and I walk up to Shops at Don Mills a few times a week to get lunch, coffee and to just get out for a bit. Today we went over and took a slightly different route to the grocery store. On our way I saw a Lucian Matis store.
Formerly one of the duo that was Pavoni. Mikael D sent some beautiful dresses down the runway – most suited for weddings but some suited for the club.
I was at a friend’s house for her birthday when Ryan Thomas came in and mentioned that Jordan English had a show right across the street. It’s called Beautiful Splendour. The works featured fashion designers and their famour scandals.
I really, really like my job. Why? Well, thanks to Nicole Bogart, GlobalNews.ca’s tech reporter, we got a hands-on tutorial about Google Glass. She invited Tom Emrich, one of the few people who owns a pair to demonstrate them to the team.
I’m not a fan of leather pencil skirts. I don’t find them comfortable and part of me finds them just a bit inappropriate for me for work. However, a leather full skirt? That’s different. Maybe it’s the fullness versus the tightness.
LinkedIn has a series of experts and influencers who share their wisdom about work, hiring, startups and life itself. Most of them do offer new insight into the changing world of employment but some of them seem to turn back time.
Torontonians love their city. They also love their neighbourhoods and in the last few years, (cough, Rob Ford), more of them have become politically active (see #Topoli and #WITOpoli on Twitter.)
I guess this is fall via Downton Abbey/English hunting? I don’t ever recall anyone here dressing up with this level of detail but then again, Sporting Life does cater to the aspirational.
Every year Cashmere does a fashion show where Canadian designers make clothing out of bathroom tissue. It’s partly to showcase the designers’ talent and partly to raise awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month with their pink bathroom tissue.
I’ve been taking the subway to Bloor this week instead of my usual easy bus ride. I hate taking the subway because it’s always standing room only by time it gets to Yonge and Eglinton – five stops north of Bloor.
I watched the SARS Crisis in Toronto unfold from a guest house in Japan.
In 2002, I quit my first job and left Toronto to teach English in Tokyo. My plan was to spend a year teaching and then travel through China, Hong Kong and end up on a beach in Bali or Thailand. Then SARS happened.
I'm at Social Media Week Toronto so come by and say hi. Why am I there? I'm the community manager for GlobalNews.ca and mobile is where it's at. I won't go on and on about it but there are some interesting panels going on this week. Not...Read More
Working my way through my closet, getting rid of some items, donating a few and altering some others. I got this dress five years ago in Monsoon on Oxford street. I’ve worn it a few times but it has been languishing in my closet for two years.
This is a blast from the past:
Everyone knows Joe Fresh and, of course, Club Monaco – both launched by Joe Mimran but how many remember Tevrow + Chase? I admit I forgot about it until this coat came into my friend’s store this past week.
