A little bit in love with Hudson’s Bay

IMG_0478

Once upon a time, I wouldn’t step foot into the Bay. (Unless my mother dragged me, of course.) But Jordan and I went for a stroll through the iconic Canadian department store recently and were in love with… well, pretty much everything. The whole store is filled with fantastic brands, beautiful displays, and some fun pop-up shops. Basically it’s a goldmine for potential Christmas presents – I definitely know where I’ll be doing a chunk of my shopping this year!

How fun are these shoes? Chuck Taylors adorned with the instantly recognizable Hudson’s Bay stripes.

There was a full Kate Spade display at the Eaton Centre location. Pure gold for a KS lover like me.

Ridiculously adorable phones? Check.

Here’s the fun part – pop-up shops! Now, instead of trudging outside to a Drake General Store, you can just head to the Hudson’s Bay basement. You’re welcome.

Also awesome: The Brika pop-up shop. Handmade goods, all beautifully designed (above).

Bottom line? The Bay is fantastic nowadays… and definitely worth a visit.

Decor inspiration: Celebrating Canada Day

It’s the Canada Day long weekend – the perfect time to think about adding something Canadian to your decorating. It seems our country is rather chic right now and I’ve stumbled on quite a bit of Canada-themed home decor lately. My top picks below!

Watercolour print on Etsy“I love Canada” watercolour print – $16.22 on Etsy
Isn’t this gorgeous? Would be stunning with a white frame and a big mat.

Pillows at Spruce

This store recently opened in TO and I keep meaning to check it out.
They have all these fun pillows with  everything from the Great Lakes to a map of Canada!

CBC record journal at Scout

CBC hard-bound record journal – Scout
Scout, a gift shop on Roncesvalles in TO, always has adorable (and often patriotic) trinkets.
This CBC record-turned-journal is no exception. What’s more Canadian than our national broadcaster?

To all my fellow Canucks, I hope you’re enjoying this long weekend and have a chance to celebrate our lovely country on July 1! Thanks to all our readers from coast to coast!
