store spotlight: the jacaranda tree

If you are ever in the Mt.Pleasant and Eglinton area of Toronto, I encourage you to pop into one of my favourite little stores, The Jacaranda Tree. It is my go-to store for hostess gifts if I am attending an event, or looking for a perfect gift for a family member or girlfriend.What I love about the store is that it mixes items that are manufactured present day, with antiques. The result is a little shop that is bursting with must-haves for your home. From vintage china, body lotion, furniture on the second floor, and linens, this little store is filled with beautiful pieces.

shopping for new hardwood floors

I don’t know if any of you have ever been in this position but the past few years have been tough ones for me and my family. My father passed away in March 2009 and it’s been a long and difficult journey of recovery and healing. Overcoming the overwhelming grief has not been easy and now, two and a half years later, we’re still struggling to understand and accept.

But life has a way of pulling you along, even when what you want most in the world is just to stand still.

We finally found a condo that was perfect for her – large and spacious with an incredible ravine view. The size and layout of the space were ideal but the decor – not so much. We decided to take the condo anyway, and renovate it from top to bottom to turn it into a space that she’d love for the years to come.

a cup of coffee at cafe myriade

Since moving to Toronto, there are a lot of Montreal food spots that I find myself really missing. On the top of my coffee shop list is Café Myriade, a quaint little store near Concordia University. In a small but cozy locale, this coffee shop carries a myriad (pun intended!) of specialty coffees and some of the best pastries I’ve had in town.
