I’ve Been Shopping For You…

I’ve been on the hunt for my clients and my own home. I’ve done some scouring online and in-stores and come up with some inspirational favourites. All products are new introductions for Spring’17 and are affordable. Please enjoy and remember: I shop so you don’t have to. :)

With that in mind, reality star/model Kendall Jenner has reportedly used the colour to paint her living room wall… stay calm and slim for 2017!

THE RE-BIRTH OF A SUPERMODEL:
50-year old Cindy Crawford is back gracing the pages of magazines as the new face of Silestone by Cosentino, a quartz countertop company. The magazine print campaign launches this spring and the manufacturers are hoping that her super-model status will help make their countertops sexy in the eyes of consumers. Cindy also has a line of furniture with The Brick, in Canada…

A recent study discovered the peak-age that consumers stop shopping at the following stores: Lowes: 54, Home Depot: 48, Restoration Hardware: 44, Crate & Barrel: 31, IKEA: 24. BTW: the age that most consumers are willing to give up their IKEA furnishings is 34. :)

BUY FOOD FOR UP TO 40% LESS:
Anyone who grocery shops downtown pays a premium! Penguin Pick-Up has started a program called ‘Walmart Grocery Pick-Up‘. You shop for groceries online and they deliver the order to one of about 10 pick-up locations in the downtown area. No more driving to the suburbs to save money on groceries. I’ve done comparisons and discovered and average of 25% savings.
