I often find it difficult to choose a place to eat or grab a drink. Not because there’s nowhere to go, but because Toronto has SO many options it’s hard to pick just one!
I love discovering new places and my latest adventure was to Cafe Taste.
If I showed you around my house today, you would find dozens and dozens of cookbooks stacked on my bookcases, kitchen shelves and side tables. I really treasure each and every one of them and have hand-picked them all individually, creating what I consider to be a pretty perfect cookbook collection!

When I was designing my nursery I came across Monte, a Canadian manufacturer who makes gliders that fit into more modern home decor. It was refreshing to know that there were companies out there that took modern approaches to baby items. Although we didn’t get our glider from them, we bought our son Oscar this little Cubino chair from them for our TV room. Oscar is already in love (see him pictured above in it!)
I fell in love with the the charcoal and green colour combo as it was soft and soothing and went with the rest of the decor in our house.
Monte Cubino Chair, $109 + shipping.

Having lived in Toronto for only a handful of months, there are a lot of places that I have not yet had a chance to visit. I was told by a myriad of people that going to the CNE was a must. With only a few weeks of warm weather left, I finally made my way to the Ex this past Sunday. I saw the farm animals, walked through all the attractions and games and, maybe most importantly, had my first bite of a deep-fried Oreo.
