William S. Walker, Milliner Extaordinaire has done it again!  He researched, designed and installed a new display right in the hall by the Pacific Street entrance of The Roundhouse.  With the background of a detailed historical map sent from Toronto's head office of Hudson's Bay, William has added Beaver Hats in different variations as well as others, feathers, hat molds, fabrics, bands, photographs, and so many other tools for making hats throughout history.

Tips Nail bar on Danforth is the place to get the best manicure and Dermalogica face care in Toronto! On Wednesday, June 10th, we were invited to visit Tips for manicures and Dermalogica face mapping. Not only did we leave with great nails, we also left knowing more about our skin and what we can do to ensure it stays healthy.

Tips also has a team present at World Mastercard Fashion Week and has created nail trends for Lucian Matis, Pavoni, Pink Tartan, Greta Constantine and Ruffian.

Last week I visited the newly launching The Apt by the very talented designer and small space expert Nike Onile. This "shoppable apartment" is the first of its kind and a retail experience unlike any other in Canada. The Apt, at 497 Sq Ft, is like a design pop-up shop but hosted in a real apartment, so you can see how the items can be put together and how you can seamlessly style 800 square feet or less. The Apt, which changes with each season, features furniture, design accessories, art by local artists and even designer garments in the closet. Everything in the space is shoppable, including the food! What impressed me most about the space and the items in it, was the inspiration I felt and the new items I discovered with each glance. It really is all about the details! I also met many of the artists and designers whose work Nike is featuring in the space. Some of their images are below. 

Nike on The Apt: "A distinct experience will emerge for each person passing through these doors."

Thank you for having us Nike! Interested in learning more? Visit


The designer and visionary, Nike Onile

It's all shoppable ladies and gents!

Amazing how big the space felt. I was surprised to see the actual sq. footage!

Beautiful gift boxes, as carefully put together as the space, to the right.

Art, art, art!

Loved this little chair


The fabulous Nike!

Clothes are shoppable!
