Chambar Restaurant’s Exclusive Hard Hat Media Preview

Chambar has been one of my favourite fine dining restaurants since I first stepped foot in their trendy Gastown location a few years ago, so I was very excited to experience a sneak peek and raise a glass to the new location’s development.

That hot summer evening was served with excitement, exquisite cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while the blueprints were displayed for us to see, and the difference is tremendous already!  The restaurant (going to be located at 568 Beatty Street) is more spacious and the patio is bright and beautiful.

The new seating capacities will be:

Lounge 60 guests
Bar 22 guests
Patio 60 guests
Dining Room 90 guests
Private Room 20-80 (standing is 150) guests
Apprentice Bar 8 guests

Breakfast/Brunch starts at 8am, Lunch 11am, Dinner 6pm, Civilized Debauchery is all day long, and you can find me at the Waffles and Coffee, which starts at 8am and goes until 3pm!

Feast your eyes on all the treats and ‘juice.’  The photos do not give justice to their taste, however, you can see how delightful they were!

LIVIN’ EZ

A cotton pencil skirt’s form fitting silhouette makes it appropriate for almost every occasion; pair with a Tee and chucks to relax the look or throw on some edgy heels to be ready for wherever the day takes you.

GREEN GO-TO!

Lately I’ve been on the go nonstop, leaving little to no time to cook much and I refuse to eat crap from being short on time.  With that said, making smoothies have been my go-to for nutrition on the fly.

DREAM HOMES: Ronald McDonald House Part 2

This week Dream Homes completed filming of our special episode at the Ronald McDonald House.  The team behind the RMH did an incredible job creating a ‘home away from home’ for many families, so be sure to tune in when the episode airs.

Here is a sneak peek of the looks pulled from Le Chateau for our hosts, Peter Verge and Bianca Solterbeck.

BOHO KIMONO

I’m practically living in my kimono these days, which ‘fits’ my west coast style.

You don’t need to be at a music festival to wear one.  I love dressing my kimono up with some cool leggings, wedges and accessories, or for those days that I want to be relaxed, I’ll often pair it with my boyfriend jeans and heels or high waist denim shorts with some embellished sandals.

The Kimono is definitely a trendy staple to have in your wardrobe this season.  Have fun mixing prints and colours with it’s floral palette.
