Happy Canada day folks! Happy 4th of July to my American friends, and happy Friday to all! I've been in Toronto for slightly under six years now and I'm impressed at how quickly it started to feel like home and how welcomed I've been made to feel here. This long weekend celebrations involve...

Landlords were quick to catch on and are now charging an arm and a leg for dodgy holes in the wall. No can do m'am. I haven't found a place yet, but I've put a brake on the scrambling; I'm less anxious and have faith that a cosy gem soon will come. With this new found peace, I was able to...

Only classic thing of course are the problems that arise when one needs to go to the bathroom. Then easy breezy becomes extremely frustrating and sweat-inducing as the straps choose that moment to go on strike, refusing to come undone. Succeeded in kicking one of my summer resolutions into...

Throw in a broken laptop and touch-and-go phone coupled with some serious bouts of fever, and you've got one terribly frustrating experience. But the saying is true: all's well that ends well. Sickness is out the door, lappie and phone are in good working order, exams are donzo and graduation...

I especially love how she personalizes each page withletraset letters concealing a "secret message",finishing off with an original printed vintage illustration on the first page. Charming. Of course I've put in a plea to have one made for me.We've all been urging Amy to create a little...
