I met Andrew Dobson during a site visit to Toronto. His energy, love for the city, and fabulous food recommendations convinced me that he would be a great addition to our TBEX line up, as we expand our reach into the food and culinary niches.
The Windsor Arms Hotel is one of the most prestigious hotel in our little neighborhood of Yorkville. The original home of TIFF and the destination hotel for celebrities, couples and dignitaries alike for when they visit Toronto.
During one of the days at the hotel I got to experience a day with Executive Pastry Chef, Rita. It was defiantly a fun experience; I got to make many various desserts for the afternoon tea event that happens at the hotel.
Nestled just below Yorkville in the elegant Windsor Arms tearoom, Persona Jewelry unveiled their latest collection of Spring-inspired jewelry, available to the public late April 2013. The women of Persona Jewelry select the most delicate and light-catching beadwork they can find, usually sourcing materials from Italy (crystal) and beyond, rounding out the airy beads with sturdy and luminous sterling silver. This season Persona draws inspiration from delicate flora and fauna with their Paradise collection. The beads in this line feature petite and brightly coloured flowers and butterflies made from a mix of cubic zirconia accents and enamel paint. All the small accents are also three dimensional, giving the beads a life of their own.
