Sometimes you just need a good hair day, you know? Today I'm introducing you to Society Salon and Blow Dry Bar, a little gem on Sparks Street. Spoiler alert: Society's client list includes a certain world leader with great hair and a penchant...

Full disclosure: this post is totally 100% biased. Here's why: one of my best pals just opened a downtown kitchen boutique called Pot & Pantry, and I'm smitten. Her shop is bursting with polished copper dishes, handcrafted pottery, and cast...

I have too many freckles. I'm too pale. My fine lines make me crazy. Why do I still get zits?! Why are my eyelids so damn purply? Why are my cheeks so red? OH MY GOD MORE FRECKLES. Thoughts like these zip through my head on the regular. How about you...

This spring I stumbled upon a brand new Ottawa business called ISÖ Spa Floatation Centre. I'd never heard of such a thing so naturally I popped by to check it out. And my goodness, what a gem. If life is feeling chaotic and you need to chill the heck...

Ever been to a float spa? Ever even heard of a float spa? Til recently I hadn't heard of any and certainly hadn't tried one. I'd been to Le Nordik a bunch of times and floated around in their hot tubs and pools, but when the kind folks at I...

Spring is finally here and like lots of you, I've been puttering away on house projects. Well actually, I've been making a long list of projects and tackling a few of them... then procrastinating the rest. You know, stuff like cleaning the windows, d...

I'm super excited about this one. On one of my recent trips to Vincent on Preston (I love that place), I chatted with sisters and co-boss babes Ang and Amanga (those beauties below ↓) about Mother's Day.

 

They had some great i...

I've been a fan of Purple Urchin for years now. I think I first met them back in 2011 when I was helping out at Urban Craft, and they had just launched their company with their unofficial HQ in their basement. Now they have their very own shop in dow...
