Canadian design bloggers have really got it going on!

Last weekend I had the pleasure to meet and mingle with an amazing group of design bloggers at the Canadian design bloggers meetupÂ heldÂ at Brassaii in Toronto. Vitania of Verdigris Vie & Daniella of Dress Design Decor organized a most beautiful event with the help of generous sponsors (IKEA, Delta, CIL, as well as House & Home, Crate & Barrel, Style at Home, Kravet, and Rowenta). The party was full of style.

The very stylish Tommy Smythe shared some photos and stories from his recent trip to Scandinavia and kept the crowd laughing (photos here).
IKEA + prosecco = two of my favourite things
The event was beautifully organized, very well-attended, and it was an inspiring evening to say the least. I’m already looking forward to the next meetup – as I know many of the bloggers I met are too!
Happy Father’s Day to all the new and more experienced dads out there.

Happy Father’s Day Dad!
We bought you a gift but it has nothing to do with cologne. We know you’re more of an Old Spice kind of guy anyway.
Exactly one year ago today I welcomed Johanne as White Cabana’s first contributor. She has brought interesting products and witty commentary to the pages of this blog ever since. She’s been my blogging coach since day one (here and at Fashion in Motion) and I am absolutely grateful and thankful to call her a friend too.
I wish I could have written a song in her honor today but she’s the musician out of this bunch so it’s best to leave the singing (and ukulele playing) up to her.
Happy one year Johanne!
It’s my youngest nephew’s one year old birthday today. Hooray!
His most recent favourite thing to do is to walk. Everywhere.
