Happy 4th Birthday to the Toronto Design Blog, one of my favourite tumblrs out there - a must follow.
The Resort at Isla Palenque, Panama
- we all know that Panama City is very “hot” right now, so why not combine your stay at the American Trade Hotel with one at this private island where whale watching and relaxing on the beach are the hardest things you’ll do.
Happy Earth Day everyone.
It’s also Fashion Revolution Day this Thursday April 24th, which I think ties into Earth Day as all this fast fashion out there is just as guilty of polluting our precious planet. I don’t generally like to get preachy, but we all really need to be much more mindful of the impact our fashion buying decisions and the clothes we wear make. Have a nice day!

There are 2 types of people in this world - those that get it and those that don’t (and can’t be bothered to). Sooner I realize this, the happier I will be.
