Pony Love

Two horse noses nuzzling.
It was a very special Saturday a few weeks back. As many of you know, I have two horses (aka ponies as I like to call them). They live at two separate farms in the Hamilton area. Both farms are fantastic and the care they both get is amazing. On this particular Saturday my older horse Toby was trailered over to Griffin’s barn.

Filly in the City

When you combine the horse world with the fashion world in an urban downtown setting, you get Filly in the City.  Christine Curtin, the owner of the store, combined her passion for horses and previous work experience to bring Filly and the City to life back in mid December.  On a recent trip back to Toronto, I had the opportunity to speak with Christine after she kindly invited me to take a look ... >

Nothing Like a Good Yin Shoelace to Put Me at Ease

During this past year, I have found a new appreciation for yoga.  It has many benefits: for the mind, body, and soul. Sounds cheesy, I know,  and some may be skeptical.   But I have found it to be such an amazing way to relax, unwind and just get in tune with myself again.  I live a whirlwind of a life, and it is hard to destress and calm down for the craziness of everything else going on.

My Room, My Sanctuary

It has been quite some time, many years, since I can truthfully say that my bedroom feels like it’s my escape. My room consists of many elements that make me feel relaxed and at peace. For one thing, I actually have a decent sized closet! To some this may not seem so exciting, but for a woman with a lot of clothes, this is heaven! There are pictures of my horses and friends up, giving me dai ... >
