Happy New Year everyone! As we leave behind the holiday season and slide into mid January, many of us begin to think about our New Year’s resolutions and how we can actually start achieving new goals in 2013. It’s easy enough to write a long wish list of things we want to improve about ourselves but often these broad resolutions don’t last past Valentine’s Day. Setting smaller, specific goals is better way to achieve lasting change.
A common goal many of us set for ourselves during this time of year is to get more physically active and to adopt healthier eating … Read More »

My hands tucked into the new Bay Olympic mittens holding my first (of many) Starbucks Caramel Brule latte! The colour coordination couldn’t have been any better, and even the first few snow flakes of the season didn’t bother me. The timing of the launch of these two new seasonal products was perfect; The Bay launched the newly designed mittens last Monday, along with matching scarves. The Starbucks holiday drinks and red holiday cups launched this past Friday along with their entire holiday line.
The launch of these two products is an obviously sign that Christmas and the holiday season are around the … Read More »
This week Toronto has turned into the centre of the fashion world as top designers, as well as our own Canadian talent, bring their Spring/Summer 2013 looks to the runway at David Pecaut Square.
Our team got the chance to take in Canadian designer Adrian Wu’s show on Tuesday. While Wu’s fashions certainly aren’t known for being “ready to wear” (think extreme haute couture), the show still provided an interesting insight into new trends for the coming seasons.
Wu is one of Toronto Fashion Week’s youngest designers; in fact last year he was the youngest designer ever to show at TFW. He … Read More »

The Pantone Colour Institute recently released their “Fashion Colour Report Spring 2013” forecasting the “it” colours for next spring and summer. And when it comes to talking colour trends, … Read More »
