Shopping tends to get a little more challenging when you have children. Instead of that deep yearning to check out every store, you find yourself drawn to the ones that have everything you need under one roof. The parking, the buckling and unbuckling of car seats, the traffic, kids asking if we’re almost done – it’s exhausting.  If you ask my husband what my favourite store is in the city, he will answer with “Marshalls” almost immediately. Whether I’m shopping for myself or my family, it’s my go-to store for brand-name fashions, gifts, kitchenware and toys at a deeply discounted price.  Over the weekend, […] Continue reading →

Each and every Monday I’m joined by some of my favorite fashion bloggers, Vera Sweeney from Lady and the Blog, Lena from Listen To Lena, and Audrey from Mom Generations, where we share 3-4 covet-worthy products that we are currently in love with. During a press trip to Kissammee, Florida last week, I had the chance to visit the Premium Outlets in Orlando. Mind. Blown. Saks Fifth Avenue, Barney’s, J.Crew, Burberry and many other of my favorite shops were there – but as an outlet meaning that their goods were deeply discounted. I took a peek inside J.Crew’s […] Continue reading →

Last week while shopping with my kids I noticed that a new store had opened up in one of the shopping malls kiddie corner to Old Navy. Turns out Marshalls made their debut in Canada back in March 2011 and have now been opening locations across various provinces for the past year. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Marshalls, it is an American department store chain that is owned by TJX, the same company who owns Winners, Home Sense and TJ Maxx. I was pleasantly surprised with the great selection of designer brands, all of which had been […] Continue reading →
