Duffy's coming to Toronto

Thanks to my dear NY friend Tameisha for introducing me to Duffy. If you like Amy Winehouse & Adele, you're surely love Duffy. Her raspy voice is reminiscent to Dusty Springfield in the 60's.

She's currently touring North America and will be in Toronto on Saturday, August 2, 2008 at Phoenix Concert Theatre. Click here to buy tickets.

 

Her debut album Rockferry includes her 60's vibe single "Mercy" and is truly unique and refreshing album. I have to say that my favorite song on this album is by far "Sugar and Honey" and Lou's favorite song is "Hanging on too long".

Check out these videos from You Tube.

The best expandable table I've ever seen

I'm sure there are a lot of people who might have already seen this but I just discovered it today. The funny this is that I recently purchase a round table and always thought, "It's too bad it can't be expandable.". I live in a tiny 560 sq ft condo and the table I purchased has a 39 inch diameter. It seats 4 comfortably but could probably squeen in one more person.

This table, however, can seat a hell of a lot more when expanded.

Check it out!!

Czehoski is definitely on the top of my list.

    

Divide and Conquer!!

There are so many ways you can divide your rooms like using a curtain, a bookshelf, a divider screen, or even a IKEA PAX wardrobe as seen here on Apartment Therapy. In March, we were looking for a condo to purchase so that we didn't have to continue paying rent. We decided to look at City Place in downtown Toronto and saw a few different layouts.

Between the 3 or 4, 1 bedroom layouts that we saw, we had a really hard time deciding on which 1 bedroom unit to purchase. The first unit that was 468 sq ft, had loads of closet space, no door to the bedroom (yes.. that's right.. no door. Just open to the living area), but the most gorgeous view I've ever seen of Toronto. It was facing east and was on the 50th floor. The view was the lake to your right and all city view. The only problem with this place was it would have been impossible to fit 2 adults, 2 cats, 1 dog and 2 guinea pigs and it didn't have a balcony. I need my fresh air!

Another unit we saw was a bedroom plus den. The den was pretty small and had low uneven ceilings and because the den was by the front of the door away from the kitchen and living/dining area, the rest of the rooms seemed small. I LOVE open space concepts instead of many small rooms. One bonus though was that this unit was the only one we saw that had full size appliances in the kitchen and was a U shaped kitchen.

The last unit that was a potential was a 1 bedroom unit that had a kitchen on 1 wall that was pretty much in the hall way (see pics below) but had nice dark cabinets and an open living/dining room. Only downfalls were that the appliances were compact appliances and they were white, as well as the fact that the bedroom didn't have a door yet again! I guess they designed it that way to make the unit feel bigger and yes... it does make it feel that way, however, we have cats that aren't allowed in the bedroom because I'm allergic to them (don't ask.... long story). I have to say though that when we first saw this unit, there was something about it that just felt right. It would've been a design challenge and perhaps that's why I loved it because it is a challenge but we just had a better overall feeling about it.

The only thing that I was losing sleep on was how was I going to block off the bedroom?? Things that make you go hhmm???


Here's what the bedroom looked like. (That's Mark and Steve in the picture)


After searching and searching and more searching, we decided to go with the Pier 1 shutter room divider. Unfortunately, we are still waiting for the building to be registered so we weren't allowed to do any construction so this is our temporary solution.



Here are some other dividers to choose from if you're looking for a way to divide your rooms.
