Relentless Acts of Kindness

I’m at the cottage, sitting outside, as I write this week’s blog.  The air is still, the sun is shining, birds are chirping and I can hear the neighbour chopping wood in the distance.

Yesterday was Sunday of the Thanksgiving weekend.  My father-in-law and I spent most (more…)

Be Thankful

I’m pretty sure I could write about being thankful every week.

This weekend certainly is the perfect time to reflect on all of the parts of our lives that matter the most.

What happens to us when we don’t feel thankful?  Do you ever have those days where (more…)

This is how we Celebrate!

Mouth watering wines from Konzelmann Winery in Niagara.  Delicious sliders with a choice of back bacon, Montreal smoked meat or roast beef.  Creamy Oka cheese, fresh grapes, juicy peaches and nectarines, salty potato chips and sugary sweet butter tarts and maple cookies.

Does this buffet of yumminess make you proud to be Canadian?  I sure hope so!

This was the spread that we presented to our guests on Friday September 22nd when we launched our very special (more…)

Mom, Me & Europa!

On Tuesday August 29th Iceland Air Flight 532 left Toronto International Airport at 9pm and my Mom and I were off on another adventure.

We had decided earlier this summer to travel to Germany and visit relatives.  Our family is changing quickly over there in Deutschland!  Many of them are getting older and we also have (more…)

The Okanagan Collection

Oooh that Okanagan, such a magical place!  So magical in fact that Wayne and eloped there.  Hey, enough about me, I’m so grateful to share this amazing story from our Maggie.  We obviously share the same love . . .

“My dad was born and raised in the Okanagan, the middle child of three. His parents, though originally both from Saskatchewan, had moved to the valley after a short time in Quebec. When I was a kid, we would go back and visit my grandparents and all my dad’s old friends every few years.

Two houses were built by my grandfather for (more…)

The Niagara Collection

Are you ready?  Natasha is taking us to her homeland!  It’s time to take a walk through the vineyards and sip some of the best wines in the world.  Hmmm . . . I wonder where she is taking us?

“Niagara is a place I’ve called home for over 40 years!  From the gorgeous (more…)

The Jasper Collection

This week the glamjulz fall collection is reminiscent of an alpine town located in Canada’s largest national park.  Nestled within the Canadian Rockies, this landmark is arguably the most picturesque spot to visit in Canada.

Dawn is taking us to (more…)

The Montreal Collection

If anyone knows our Natasha, this girl LOVES to shop!  What I love the most about her is that she saves her pennies to shop local and support people in her community!  That’s pretty much how we met and why she is now such a big part of glamjulz.

There is only one place I think of (more…)

The Toronto Collection

This city holds a place in my heart that is so big it actually flutters.

I grew up in Oakville but my heart is in this city.  Toronto is my foundation.

My parents met in this city, my Oma lived at Pape and Danforth and I was living the city life from the time I was in the womb.

When my Mom started having contractions with me my Oma drove her along the Danforth, across the Bloor Viaduct and straight to the doors of the Wellesley Hospital.  That drive was made very gingerley, entirely in 2nd gear in my Oma’s 1967 emerald green beetle.  That was August 20th 1969. (more…)

The Laurentians Collection

This stunning colour combination comes from Dawn who has been with glamjulz since 2001!  I know how much you all love Dawn’s creativity here at the studio.  Start to imagine now how spectacular this Laurentians inspired colour story will be.

Take it away Dawn and tell us what inspired you for our fall 2017 collection.

“I was so lucky to have had a beautiful cottage in the Laurentians – spending weeks (more…)
