Lumon Canada

I have always been a fan of glass enclosures for balconies since discovering them in Finland. All of the flats I have visited have had them and you find them both on new and old buildings. Smart and practical Finnish design for climates with four seasons. Thankfully Lumon has brought this design element to Canada. If you are looking to expand your living space in your condo, sunroom or patio at your residence and/or business, definitely visit at Lumon Canada to learn more. Beautiful, stylish and practical design to create a better home.

Lano Love

Lano ­čĺŚ. For the most part, my makeup is pretty natural and I love the simplicity and nourishing feeling of a lip gloss plus a more understated lip colour. Recently I learned about Australian brand Lano Lips from a friend on the train. Love their line which is new to Canada and available at Sephora Canada.

Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Consider this: One in two Canadian women have experienced sexual harassment at work, according to a 2018 Angus Reid survey, and 89% say they use strategies to avoid unwanted sexual advances in the workplace. Yet, in a survey late last year of 153 Canadian executivesÔÇö95% of whom were maleÔÇöthe Gandalf Group reported that 94% said sexual harassment was not a problem at their companies.

Please take time to read these stories shared by eight brave women. One of my former colleagues is one of the eight women to share her story. Share it. Speak up if you see it happening to a colleague who may not have the confidence to speak up for themselves. Intervene. Lead by example and end sexism and sexual harassment in the workplace.

Kitchen Essentials: A Chef’s Knife and Paring Knife

For anyone who cooks at home, a Chef’s Knife and Paring Knife are kitchen essentials and absolutely worth the investment. My knives of choice are the W├╝sthof ┬« Classic 6″ Chef’s Knife and W├╝sthof ┬« Gourmet 3″ Paring Knife that I have had since 2010 and still love today. Despite cooking since childhood, I signed up for a knife skills cooking class at the LCBO in Toronto. In one evening class, my friends and I were lucky enough to learn beginner knife skills, enjoy the fruits of the our labour and were gifted with a few W├╝sthof ┬« knives to take home. The LCBO still runs these classes at the Summerhill Toronto LCBO Stores and other locations throughout Ontario. If this is something you are interested in, sign up for their LCBO Taste and Experiences Guide to learn about future classes. The LCBO also has a number of great cooking classes with wine paring too. I highly recommend taking one if you are looking to expand your own culinary skills. It is a lovely way to spend an evening.

If you are already a knife pro and looking for an upgrade, definitely check out the Wüsthof ® knives which are sold in Toronto at Crate and Barrel Yorkdale Shopping Centre, via their website and at Russell Hendrix Foodservice Equipment. I love mine.

Happy chopping!
