Pistachio is the eco-friendly consumer’s one-stop shop. The beautiful modern store welcomes you in with unique ideas for gifts, skincare, housewares, books, clothes, stationary – and for the eagle-eyed family shopper, this one’s a keeper: baby products they have.

Every parent needs some time for themselves – and what better way to rejuvenate than the spa! We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Vida Spas, a first-class spa catering to your pampering needs at the Sutton Place Hotel, The Sheridan Vancouver Wall Centre, The Westin Bayshore and The Fairmont Chateau Whistler.
Nannies on Call has been at the corner of Beatty and Robson for many years. We love the location. There are many great resturants within walking distance (Japa Dog anyone?) and I’m sure I don’t need to mention all the shopping all along Robson. It is a great place to work.
The atmosphere at Patachou is both chic and welcoming; un vrai petit cafe Francais! Which is welcome if you’ve been missing wonderful chocolate croissant from Montreal (like the ones at the patisserie from the train station? Right. I’m fussy.) It’s tricky to find quality French bakeries like Patachou in Toronto – they do exist, but you have to search diligently. And eat. You know, in the name of purity. I’d go on at length, but I think Erwin M, Matthew S., & Kat F. have said everything you need to know croissant-wise!
ou have found a nanny you want to hire. She seems confident, experienced and trustworthy. Then you call her references and they do not say good things. What do you do now? You were so sure her references would be excellent.
Make sure you do enough digging. Was there one incident or was there a recurring problem. Was the nanny open to fixing the issue or did the family fire her without any discussion. A bad reference is not the end of the road.
