Girlfriend getaways

Excerpt from Susan Pollock’s article in the Detroit News. It was a pleasure to have Susan in class! Full article link below.

For an antidote to the holidays or a fun run-up to Valentine’s Day, sign up for a cupcake decorating class at Le Dolci, a foodie studio run by entrepreneur Lisa Sanguedolce, whose motifs range from Canadiana (beavers, Mounties and more) to holidays and fashion icons such as Tiffany and Chanel.

Located in a Phillipe Starck-designed condo high-rise in the tony west end, it attracts bachelorette parties, kids’ birthday parties and weekend chefs, men and women. Expect a sweet, sticky — and therapeutic — experience with goodies to take home. (http://LeDolci.com)

New Years Resolutions -more sweets, less meat and Sir Paul McCartney!

What’s your New Year’s Resolution? Challenge yourself to go meat free on Monday this year. Learn more about how to help the planet by reading a message from our fave British singer Paul McCartney!

A message from:
Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney who started Meat Free Mondays!

If you’ve come here today it’s because you care about what you eat and about what’s happening to our climate. We do too. That’s why we started Meat Free Monday.

By giving up meat for one day each week you can save money, reduce your environmental impact and live a healthier life.

In 2006, a United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization report, Livestock’s Long Shadow, highlighted the environmental impact of meat-eating and the importance of making more environmentally and socially conscious food choices. In 2009, we launched the Meat Free Monday campaign as a simple and straightforward idea to show everyone the value of eating less meat – and to make it easier for us all to do so.

We’re not asking you to give up meat completely, we’re encouraging you to do your bit to help protect our planet. By joining together in having one meat-free day each week we’ll be making great steps towards reducing the environmental problems associated with the meat industry. You’ll also be giving your own health a boost, and with the added benefit that vegetables cost less than meat, having one meat-free day each week means it’s good for your pocket too.

So join us and see how one day a week can make a world of difference

Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney

Things we love – Christmas Windows in Toronto!

There’s nothing more festive than store fronts during the holidays.
Retailers around the world celebrate the holiday season with gorgeous winter themed window displays, and Toronto is no
exception! To walk off all of the Christmas cheer, take a walk around Yorkville or Queen Street and take in some holiday spirit. This year we particularly love the Christmas windows at The Bay and at Holt Renfrew.
