Holiday Pop-up Gathering

  Last Thursday, we teamed up with Toronto based independent label People’s Product  and hosted a little pop-up gathering in the Launch Zone at the Ryerson Student Learning Centre. The weather was not in our favour. With windchill and snowstorm, many of our customers and friends couldn’t make it.  (If I were you, I wouldn’t want to go anywhere either. Netflix, wine and couch sound a great plan!) But for those who braved the snowstorm…

Sashion Woman- Isabel Mundigo-Moore

Isabel Mundigo-Moore and I met in an industry party full of alcohol and deafening music. It was hard and almost impossible to make a decent, not to mention an heart-to-heart conversation. So I gave up trying to get to know her. Instead, we had small talks. But there was something about this young lady that stood out and stuck with me.         When we met up again in her lovely home for a coffee,…

Five Podcasts to Feed Your Soul

Lately, the word “Podcast” has been popping on the internet quite frequently. But what does the word “podcast” mean and where it came from? Well, I googled it and this is the what I gathered from Wikipedia.   “Podcast” is a portmanteau, invented by BBC journalist Ben Hammersley in 2004, of the words “pod” — from iPod, a popular brand of portable media player produced by Apple Inc. — and “broadcast”. Despite the etymology, the content…

Cashmere Crave

Before reading this article, tune in the soundtrack. 🙂   Cashmere…hmmm. Where to even begin? My love for cashmere started from knowing Audrey Hepburn is a dedicated knitwear fan? Or when Natalie Portman wearing a black sweater to her movie premiere “Thor: The Dark World”? Not so sure. However, cashmere knitwear’s versatility is unarguable. Whether it’s a retro inspired look or a more contemporary style, a classy cashmere sweater can just be that perfect timeless…

Gentlewoman Profile: Amilus of A-unefille

  Although as a Start-up CEO, my days are mostly filled with operational planning, meetings, strategic reports, I still love to go back to my roots whenever I could, which is storytelling. I think the desire for me to ask questions, get the stories and tell the tales will never fade.     I came across Amilus’s blog, a Unefille, a couple of months ago and have been an active reader ever since. Her writing is…

Being greeted with Drake on the radio, nice windows and a colourful…

Social Media Detox with Celia

Photography by Vai Yu Law Copy-edited by Nicolette Kimberly Mendoza     My friend Celia Fernandez is someone really random and spontaneous, in a good way of course. One day when we were taking the subway, out of the blue she told me, “Oh by the way, I’m going on a social media detox for a week. Starting from tomorrow.”   “Oh really? All social media? Including Snapchat?” I asked.   “Yes, all social media. That’s why it’s…
