BlogTO's Best Facials in Toronto    


The best facial in Toronto can be had at spas that are a varied bunch--as they should be, considering the range of skin concerns (let's just call them issues) they address. Some will very easily break the bank, but do so while providing a particularly high level of service, while others will deliver bang for your buck. It's clear that Toronto's finest facials come part and parcel with the ambiance and little extras provided by the spa, but whatever your needs, Toronto's spas have got you covered.

Beaches Jazz Festival:

July 20th-29th     


The Beaches International Jazz Festival runs for nine days beginning on July 20th. While the festival doesn't attract the boldfaced names like the Toronto Jazz Festival does, they do have a lineup of accomplished musicians including Alex Pangman (above) and Liona Boyd.

Toronto Life Series: Where to buy now, Brockton Village  



Like Wallace-Emerson next door, Brockton Village is quickly becoming a destination for both urban tastemakers and young families looking for a nice, yet affordable, first home. The area's Victorian row houses are being scooped up by the first-time buyers you'll see pushing strollers on the tree-lined streets. Residents have plenty of shops to frequent: along Dundas West, Portuguese and Brazilian businesses alternate between new bars and brunch spots.

Sarah and Trevor's Story      


We started with a wide range of neighbourhoods, but soon narrowed our search to the High Park and Baby Point areas. We were seeking a detached 3+ bedroom century home, with a large backyard, private driveway, and original features (original hardwood floors, fireplace, wainscoting, etc.), as well as a home with potential for investment that would benefit us in future resale.

The home we purchased is precisely what we were looking for!
