Pint-size fashion collection: Rudsak

I’m sure everyone can remember back to a time when the weather at Halloween was cold enough that you had to wear your winter coat with your Halloween costume.  Either underneath your costume and Spiderman now became the Marshmallow Man or over top of your costume and your princess dress was no longer sparkly and pretty.   If the thought of winter coats and costumes makes you cringe then look no further then the brand new kids’ line from Rudsak.

Canadian fashion brand Rudsak was born in Montreal in 1994 under the leadership and vision of creative leader Evik Asatoorian.  The brand … Read More »

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, my thoughts go to what I am thankful for, and right now it’s The Bachelor Canada!  With its season premiere tomorrow, this is the first time the franchise has moved out of the US, and it will be interesting to see how Canadians put their own spin on the show.

Brad Smith is a former CFL player, now free agent who is looking for love with 25 eager bachelorettes, and I got to sit down with him one-on-one last week, and I can now honestly say I know why he is the … Read More »

22.09.2012 + Upper Canada Mall + No Comments


It’s fall–time when a young girl’s heart turns to thoughts of Apple and what’s new. Turn those thoughts into action and visit our Apple store ASAP. By now you’ve heard that the iPhone 5 is out–a little bit taller and thinner (what girl doesn’t love that), with a slightly bigger screen and a few more sleek colours to choose from, among many other updates. And there’s also NEW models of the iPod touch and iPod nano for hours of fun, and earlier this year the company brought out new versions of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. My personal … Read More »

These boots are made for walking

12.09.2012 + Upper Canada Mall + 1 Comment

With such a limited time to wear sandals in summer, thinking of boots seems like a fashion crime, but leave it to retailers such as Browns and suddenly you can’t wait to cover up your toes.  I love my open toed sandals and bright pedicure, but give me a pair of tall leather equestrian boots and I’m ready to jump into the leaves.  Something about the sleek and classic look with a pair of tights, a cozy jacket and a pumpkin latte from Starbucks says “bring on fall”.

I am also really excited to see pointed toe pumps making … Read More »
