There’s something so elementary, so fresh about the juxtaposition of structured, clean lines in monochrome, with a sleek white against black, a tailored cut, paired with a light and sheer silk. The way the fabric drapes, the angles that converge, the nuances of light and dark created by the shadows of a seam falling just the right way…is that an art in and of itself? An appeal against counterfeit labels and knock-off designs is, if nothing else, about the quality of the collection. Take a look, you’ll see what I mean.

Clean lines, sleek tailoring

There’s something about Sundays that requires comfort food, fluffy blankets, and strong coffee. I’ve been compiling recipes to try out on those lazy days for a while now, but somehow things like laundry and island trips and shopping at Toronto’s Kensington market always distracts me. Finally, I’ve had some time to pick and choose my favourites, and I’ve even picked up the ingredients at the local market. This Sunday, I’m finally getting around to cooking all those things I’ve been pinning. What’s on the menu?


Home Made Honey Ice Cream


Red Velvet Waffles with Cream Cheese Drizzle – We had these when we visited Nashville a few months ago, and I am certain that they can’t be that hard to master….right?

Heirloom Tomato, Basil, and Feta Frittata. Sunday morning brunch perfection.


Berries are healthy…right?

Summer is here–finally. It’s been unseasonably wet, humid, muggy, and flooding, and it’s time to bust out the sunscreen (Kiehl’s), the shades (Ray-Ban), the beach blanket (Surf Saturdays), and the summer reading materials (currently: A Hologram for the King/Eggers). With the hot weather come some of summer’s best essentials
