delish gift ideas

We’ve been fans of Delish General Store ever since we found Portland Growlers at one of their pop-up shops a few years ago. So when we heard that owner, and mama, Tamara Komuniecki was opening a permanent location on Granville Island, we couldn’t wait to check it out. We love her store, and it’s packed with such great stocking stuffers and gifts we thought this was the perfect time to share the deliciousness. MORE

Dolls are more than just toys for our little ones. Depending on the day a doll might be an important guest at a tea party, a comforting companion or a sidekick on a special mission to an unknown planet. Dolls are the perfect small accessory for large imaginations and Bamboletta dolls are designed to become part of lasting childhood memories. MORE

help curb hunger

The silly season is upon us, which means a parade of decadent meals and sinful desserts, all of which have us heading to the gym by January. And yet inexcusably amid this culinary excess, many kids, mums and families go hungry. We polled our yoyo contacts across the country and came up with three charities dedicated to ensuring Canadians get healthy meals year-round. MORE

mountain fresh scent

When it comes to personal care products, we’re very conscious of what we put on our bodies as we know it also ends up in our bodies. Except when it comes to deodorants. We’ve tried and tested organic and eco-friendly deodorants to no avail, even with Adria Vasil’s (aka the Ecoholic) guidance. So we’d been sticking with conventional ways of keeping the smell at bay until we fell in love with Rocky Mountain Soap Company’s Natural Deodorant. MORE
