Our Spring Cleaning

In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve got a new look here at lifeovereasy.  In the spirit of Spring (really the spirit of waiting for spring given the weather of late) we thought is was time to do some spring cleaning and freshen up our look a bit.  This became a fun task once I stumbled […]


Head Over To The Ryerson Image Centre

Arthur S. Goss photograph

A extra dose of culture came to the city last fall when the Ryerson Image Centre opened. Their world-class collection includes Canadian business magnate Jim Pattison’s donation of historical photos from New York’s famed Black Star Agency, valued at over $100 million. This collection represents a photojournalistic history of the 20th century, and is a […]


More Lovelies From The One Of A Kind

Here are a few more of our finds from the Toronto One of a Kind Show to keep in mind for all the ladies in your life. I was especially excited to find the perfect gift for all the older women I sometimes need to buy for – mothers and grandmothers and aunts who don’t […]


Really Really Guilt-Free Ice Cream

Yes I’m that girl.  The one that spends way too much time trolling through supermarket aisles, picking up new products and reading through the labels.  It’s true no one wants to food shop with me.  It’s always a way-too-long winded experience for most but once in a while it pays off in a big big […]


Some Target Fun

I finally had a chance to check out my local Target Canada store. Nads and I are long time Target fans, and it’s exciting to finally have one close by (although we’ll have one less excuse for a sister road trip to Buffalo). Target has opened 24 new stores in Canada, so there may be […]


Home Show Highlights

  Check out this fab fab fab outdoor fire pit.  Now I just need to buy the right backyard to house it, lol.  The Home Show/Canada Blooms Show wrapped up on Sunday with the usual collection of beautiful garden displays and new ideas for the inside and outside of your abode.  Here are a couple […]


Welcome Target to Toronto

Yes, I made the drive to Milton on Tuesday for the soft opening of a Target store.  Granted when I got on the highway I didn’t know where Milton was, but my traffic app showed it wasn’t that far and I figured if I went outside of rush hour I may scoot there and back […]


Dear Canada, Say Hi To Zara.com

Today is an exciting day for fashion lovers – Zara is launching their online store in Canada. Finally, Zara’s trendy and affordable fashions are available at the click of a button. I was invited to preview the new online shop, and it was great to be able to jazz up my wardrobe while lounging on […]


My Lips Love Coco Shine

  I might have gone a little over board with the filters but it’s late and all the happy sparkles and shiny stars really reflect how I feel about this product.  I am a lipstick girl – you know some girls are mascara girls, some are perfect hair girls, and some are lipstick girls, like […]


Adler Pet Accessories On the Loose

  Now my pup is a true manly pup, all big bark and bumbling ball of fur.  He’s not really the metro sexual type but he loves to get presents and we love to make sure he gets the latest and greatest stuff.  I’ve shared my deep mad love for all things Jonathan Adler before […]


Reno-cation Highlights – Treats from Zane

We are on “vacation” this week, or as my husband has coined it, a ‘reno-cation”.  We decided to take a week and spend 2-3 days laying down a new hardwood floor in our bedroom and stair landings and then take off up north for the rest of the time.  Famous last words.  Here we are […]


Check Out: 360 Screenings

Take some of the best iconic movies of the past 30 years, mix in some live theatre, Toronto heritage buildings, audience participation, and a touch of mystery – what do you get? A great night out courtesy of 360 Screenings. It’s always great to try something a little different for your next night out, and […]


Hello Cupcakes!

I know it’s all about donuts these days. And you all know how much we love Paulette’s and Glory Hole. But there is something just so pretty about a cupcake. So light and sweet and delicious. While donuts are great and very Canadian and all that, they don’t quite make my heart flutter like a […]

Momofuku Noodle Bar NYC

Momofuku ramen Check out some snaps from my visit to the legendary Momofuku Noodle Bar in NYC.  We regularly visit as many Chang establishments as we can get too – read my post on my Milk Bar love here. We ducked in for some late night eats on a recent visit.  I have to say […]


Furniture Picks at IDS

I had some fun with Instagram Friday while touring the IDS floor. That app is pretty addictive, and I find myself reaching more and more for my iPhone rather than my trusty Nikon. Here are some fun pics of our favourite furniture and accessory finds at this years Interior Design Show, amped up with Instagram’s […]


Some IDS Fun

We had a chance to check out the Interior Design Show when we attended the media tour on Thursday.  It’s always fun to get a design fix and check out the latest design trends, and we caught up with some of our blogger friends like the lovely Michelle from Modmissy, and the super-friendly Sarah and […]


Paris Patisserie in the Hood

Our Saturday morning (usually afternoon) routine usually consists of grabbing a coffee, stopping for some quality pastry and heading to our favorite dog park to take our pup out for a mega walk.  I don’t really have a big sweet tooth, but I am pretty picky about that perfect bite of sweet crispiness and have […]


Bond on the Brain

  It’s been a bit of a funny week.  Not funny ha ha but funny odd.  It’s been hot and cold, wet and dry, pouring rain, hot sun and the odd snowstorm here and there.  People are winding down after the holidays and there’s a smattering of Christmas trees on the curb.  Is it really […]

Holiday Vintage at Value Village

  One of my secret ‘go to’ places around town is Value Village.  It doesn’t seem like an obvious destination when shopping for the holidays, but you’d be surprised how many things you might come across with a bit of time to dig with a creative eye.  I drop in occasionally to peruse the vinyl, […]


Mega Mega Mega News – the Mega Quarry Proposal is Dead!

In our own local real life David vs Goliath story, US based billion dollar Highland Companies’ has withdrawn its’ Mega Quarry proposal after quiet but relentless opposition from the community.  I myself heard about the proposed development about two years ago, but the initiative has been in the works since early 2007.  I was shocked […]
