MOTHER’S DAY OBSESSIONS: EXPLORING PANDORA

    I recently joined the mom-club when I welcomed my little girl into the world this Spring.  One of the first things I wanted to do was give my mom a Pandora charm, celebrating her becoming a grandmother.   We love that Pandora gives us a way to commemorate important milestones and that we can enjoy these keepsakes or years to come.   If you’re looking for a beautiful gift for your mom, Pandora should definitely be at the top of your list.  We’ve picked our favourite pieces to help you spoil your mom this Mother’s Day.  She deserves it!     NECKLACES   Pandora’s necklaces are elegant…

HOW WOMEN WEAR MODERN MENSWEAR

      The modern menswear-inspired shirt has long been a staple in the closet of the most fashionable women around and now, it’s being reinvented.

There’s something about them that brings more than softness to a space, they almost bring a sense of happiness too.       Before writing for Stimuli, one of my favourite DIY projects was creating feather lampshades for The Renovator’s and my bedroom. Despite them being what I would think of as…

ROLLING KITCHEN ISLANDS

  The indispensable rolling kitchen island… We say the kitchen is the heart of the home and if this is the case, then the island is the heart of the kitchen. Many Stimulistas have been known to plan their kitchen layout around the island and in a new-build or renovation, this makes perfect sense. But what about those of us that need to make do with what we have or simply can’t see a stationary island working for us? Don’t give up on your island dream – the rolling options can be just as functional and beautiful.     INSTANT BAR CART, EATING…
