Pulp Magazine Launch

Pulp Magazine
It’s been almost two weeks since Pulp magazine launched its first print issue and Toronto media outlets are still all over it! Articles about Pulp’s models and photo shoots keep popping up all over the web and the reviews are almost always great. The magazine begun as a web and mobile-based publication, but just after two issues proved itself worthy of being printed and treasured by fashion lovers across Canada. And yes, it is good enough to be a coffee table book!

My Luxe Box

It’s been a little while since I’ve written an article for you. I apologise, my dear readers, Fira and Capa have been too busy enjoying their summer. But don’t worry, we are back on track now and have a whole bunch of fun posts coming up this week!

I’ve been dying to share with you my latest obsession, of which, as you know, I have quite a few): Luxe Box from Loose Button! For $12/month (the annual subscription is $120, so you get 2 months free!) you get a beautiful gift box packed to the brim with deluxe samples, delivered to your door. Even better, some of the products come in full size! Loose Button works with brands like Clinique, Dermalogica, Shu Uemura, MAC, and many more. There is a rumor that we will be able to get discounted products which have been featured in the Luxe Box on their site!

Come for Wine to 9 Church St.

choose from 200 wines! one of the best selections in town.
A few week ago I took my mom and her friend for a light dinner and wine to The Wine Bar on Church st. The ever-changing tapas menu was good for an unpretentious late afternoon meal, but the wine list was a real hit! Over 200 wines are available to meet every demand and budget!

Take a look at the pics after the jump and come for a glass...or two... or three...
