The fall season is looking bright – as bright as fall can be. Orange is the colour of the season, along with coffee, cedar, phlox (eggplant for the vegetarians out there), and bamboo. There’s a whole range of colours to complement orange – have fun with it!
The Jean Jacket
The season’s must-have item. Not the boxy kind from back in the day but a more tailored blazer-esque fit to accentuate your silhouette. Opt for a shorter crop to streamline your body and longer tapered sleeves to make this look even sexier. What’s perfect about this look is its versatility – dress it up, dress it down, layer it, wear it Read more

After 26 years of stylishly dressing kids of all ages in Toronto, Nancy and Cathy of Little Ones have opened a fashion destination in Vaughan that caters specifically to the tween market! Conveniently located on Rutherford Road just east of the Highway 400, N’B Tween Kidz features great fashion finds right here in Vaughan.
“We opened this store because we recognized the need for tweens to have their own space for shopping,” says Cathy. “We know that the last thing today’s preteen wants is to shop in kiddy stores surrounded by juvenile clothing.”
“Having just opened the store in March, the response from moms and kids has been overwhelmingly positive,” says Nancy. “Style is very important to today’s fashion-savvy preteens. They are in-step with current fashion trends and colours and many moms Read more

Do you recall when you enjoyed your first sip of coffee? Chances are your intense love affair with caffeine is still going strong, as you yearn for its rich aroma each morning. “It must be of a sweet taste – not bitter – and it must have a few centimetres of froth or schiuma, as we call it. And when you pour the sugar into the coffee, it should be allowed to sit for a few seconds. It is an art. No doubt about it,” says Ross Cammalleri, owner and general manager of Alfa Cappuccino. This, his sharp, impassioned and tempting description of the ideal espresso, sends the java-obsessed on frenzied coffee runs.
Alfa Cappuccino is an importing mecca: an impressive 20,000 sq. ft. of espresso machines, coffee makers, whole coffee beans, coffee grinders and restaurant equipment and accessories. Ross, along with his brother Sam, began Alfa Cappuccino in 1986. “This coming October it will be 23 years,” explains Ross. Read more
