Summer Programs for Kids on the Autism Spectrum

I love this website! "Help We've Got Kids" does exactly that- helps busy parents find resources and information on stuff to do with their little ones. If you have a child on the autism spectrum and you are looking for programs this summer in the Toronto area, check out my post here. Often parents with kids with special needs have a little more of a challenge finding programs tailored to our kids and my family couldn't live without the wonderful people at Kidnastics, Lynne Patch and Under the Umbrella Tree! Bring on summer! Rosie :)

Joey Sherway Gardens | Etobicoke

SO GOOD! Loved everything about Joey, from the airy contemporary decor to the delicious and varied menu. This ahi tuna salad was perfect, light and refreshing.

Made in Canada Beanbag Chairs

I love sharing products with you that are not only gorgeous and high-quality but 100% Canadian, so I had to tell you about these amazing beanbags chairs. I know, when you think "beanbag chair" you don't exactly think chic decor. They sort of invoke images of dorm rooms and unshowered teenagers lying around playing video games. Not so the fabulous squishy bags from MyBeanBag.ca. I was searching for my son's playroom, because our current ones purchased at the now defunct Target do not have removable covers you can throw in the wash. There is enough unidentifiable food particles hardened on them that they needed to go. A good pile of beanbags chairs are perfect for my little guy and his cousins who enjoy flinging themselves everywhere and expect you to stop and drop at any moment for a big snuggle. The chairs from this Montreal-based company are stylish, high quality and have 100% cotton covers that can be zipped off and machine-washed. I ordered this denim one and having spent a sizable amount of hours in beanbag seats, I can safely say it is the perfect beanbag chair.

The Good Son | Queen West

What a gem The Good Son is! Cozy, inviting decor with a wall of grandfather clocks, varnished wood tables and a stunning vintage chandelier that gives a warm glow to the dining area (a good chandelier gets me every time.) The wood oven baked pizzas do not disappoint. I had heard lots of good things about the prosciutto one and it was perfect- crispy and flavourful topped with mascarpone, arugula and roasted tomato.

Chef Vittorio Colacitti was at lots of top Toronto restaurants including Lucien and Pizzeria Via Mercanti before opening The Good Son. Top Chef superfans like me will remember him from season four of Top Chef Canada. What a lovely addition to Queen West in the location that Nyood used to occupy. Rosie :)

Eclectic Revival | The Junction

If you are like me and love interesting lamps, chandeliers... anything that brings me light, then take a peek at this amazing shop next time you are in the Junction. Eclectic Revival features a beautiful selection of vintage pieces including fixtures that date back as far as the 1800s. Some of the 1920s Art Deco lamps are stunning. It's a cool place for light lovers. 3075 Dundas St. W. Rosie :)

The Keg | Sherway Gardens | Etobicoke

The renovated section of Sherway Gardens is gorgeous and the new Keg is just as pretty to match. The food is great and the atmosphere is luxe, contemporary and very inviting. Perfect for me and my bestie's annual Christmas lunch. The tuna tartare and avocado starter is delicious and so easy to eat with these crispy tasty chips.
