Jill of all TradesInterior designer and former Bachelorette star Jillian Harris lives life by love and design.

Q: What led you to pursue a career in interior design?
A: My family has always been very crafty and into design — well, my mom, mostly. She owned a few home décor and design stores when I was a kid and I always remember being so fascinated with moving my furniture around, decorating my room and thinking of fun colour schemes. Growing up in a small town in northern Alberta, a career as an interior designer wasn’t really an option. It wasn’t until I moved to Calgary and was juggling a waitressing job at Cactus Club and a retail job at Caban that I fell in love with the idea of being a designer. Shortly after, I applied to be the executive assistant to the creative director of Cactus Club and it was then that my career in design was born. Read more

NavigatingTheDigitalSeaAs we plunge into the unknown expanses of the future, we must navigate the always-changing waters of the digital sea. Growing and multiplying at an ever-accelerating rate, technology is constantly evolving in both looks and functionality. There was a time when technology changed infrequently – a time when typewriters were used for typing, cameras took pictures and calculators calculated. But ever since the introduction of the consumer computer, technology has increased its pace, leaving consumers adrift in the wake of obsolete devices, software and formats.

It’s no secret that technology is always on the move. Devices and hardware we once thought to be ideal, important and perhaps even “cool” eventually become obsolete. We’ve recently seen this through pagers, fax machines, physical maps, VCRs and more recently, DVDs. With the popularity of Facebook, who even Read more

kidsAfter 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.

“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
