So what if it's snowing in April? It's not anything we Canadians aren't used to. We know Old Man Winter has a bit of a warped sense of humour and likes to give us one last salute when we think that Spring is here. It's ok with us because we like snow. It's the one thing you can throw at your significant other, friends and kids that won't hurt (except for ice balls don't throw them, a black eye from middle school taught me that lesson). Snow is quite beautiful the way it lightly falls to the ground. It's ...

Space saving furniture that multi tasks
March 23, 2016
Chatter about the full moon and lunar eclipse tonight has reminded us that whether your condo is big or small, the best way to utilize space is to have furniture that moonlights as other pieces of furniture. Take for example the everyday stool. This stool can be used as something to stand on when you're reaching up for something, but did you know it could also be used as a last minute seat or fill in for a side table holding your magazines in glorious sight? And if Ottomans are your thing, be sure to get one with an internal compartment that ...

This is the vacuum for you and your condo
November 20, 2015
I'm not sure if I mentioned in previous posts but I am not much of a cleaner. In fact I am downright ambivalent to cleaning most of the time. It usually takes a few unpleasant looks from my husband to realize I'm not pulling my weight in the cleaning department. So since I'm not known for my cleaning skills I like to equip myself with the best tools. For example I've got my friend Scrubbing Bubbles doing most of the work in the bathrooms. I've even enlisted one of those robot vacuum cleaners in my time. However awesome an ...

September 28, 2015
Yesterday was a time when people across the world took their eyes off of their computer, tablet and phone screens and looked up. The much hyped Supermoon was a sight for many people. It is a rare occurrence when a Supermoon coincides with a lunar eclipse and it was a spectacular beauty to see. Unfortunately, if you were in Toronto you likely didn't see its full beauty due to cloudy conditions #bummer. However that really got us thinking about the importance of a good clear view for condominium owners. There is a reason why you pay a premium for higher ...
