I know, I know and I’m sorry for neglecting your party schedule and all that’s design cool in Toronto.  I’ve been spending way too much time in Markham these days.  Don’t ask.

I would like to invite my favourite customers to an evening of martinis, surprises
and 10% off everything in the store.

Please join me on

between 5PM and 8PM
and bring your friends.

I know you don’t need the particulars
but here they are in case you would like to forward this to friends:

I hope to see you all here for this cocktail party with martinis so I do ask you to RSVP

I’m sure you must be aware by now that one of my all-time causes is the Furniture Bank.  Since childhood, I’ve participated in charitable events.  Does anyone remember Variety Villages’ Bike – a – thon?  Did it for years.

Well, now my energy goes to the Furniture Bank.  Right here in Toronto, the Furniture Bank is responsible for redirecting thousands of tons of furniture and household goods that would have ended up in landfills, helps thousands of families make their homes comfortable and liveable by providing items we just take for granted – like mattresses, bedding, sofa’s, chairs, utensils, etc.  I’ve volunteered as a client consultant and this will be the second year that I will be participating in the Chair Affair.  More on that later.

You too can help the Furniture Bank from the comfort of your own home by simply voting for it on the Keg’s 40th Anniversary Thanks a Million Grant program.  Just vote for it every day until June 14th, to help them win a a much needed grant of $25,000.

It’s really easy.  Just click here  every day for the next 2 weeks and vote for the Furniture Bank.

Thanks a Million!!!

Is this the new Red Light district in Toronto?  Hardly. Well…

But the opening party of NSC(Neubacher Shor Contemporary)- The Venue, was a clear indication that something very cool is happening in the art gallery world in Toronto.

Anya Shor and Manny Neubacher, art experts, gallery owners and otherwise known as The Art Stylists have collaborated with Eatertainment to create this amazing gallery and event space.  It’s fortunate when you find an old building like this and can turn it into something amazing.  When they found it, “it was some sort of storage warehouse,” said Anya, who also mentioned that she wanted to do more research on its history.

“The collaboration just came together one day when Manny and Anya approached me with the idea” said Sebastien Centner of Eatertainment.  “Using the space for events after gallery hours just made sense” said Anya.  And I have to agree.  Imagine having your wedding reception in a beautiful gallery surrounded by the cream of Canadian artists.  And with one of my fave artists, Thrush Holmes as a new addition to their roster, you can’t argue.

The opening was by far the event to kick off the spring party season. Food was yummy with drinks flowing on through the night. Morgan Shim provided the cool tunes. There were tons of celebs, artists and fashion designers.  We bumped into Bruno Billio, – artist extraordinaire, Leah Bazian– fashion designer, Glen Baxter – reporter, and lots of socialites and models.  I was having too much fun to take everyone’s picture, but here are a few:

NSC – The Venue is now open to the public Wednesday to Saturday 11 – 5pm, at 5 Brock Ave. just north of Queen St. W.

You’re invited to visit every Saturday during April for a celebratory tour and cocktail.

Yes, you heard me.

“Snob”, which is one of my fave shops is having a fantastic Spring Sale, just in time for all of my friends who have just bought a house and are decorating.

“Snob” is a store that brings in amazing furniture and accessories from Africa.  No other store in this part of Canada offers these beautiful treasures. Read more about  “Snob” here.  I generally don’t like to list prices, but this sale is too good not to share.

These prices last until April 17 only!
