It’s hard to believe we’re already half way through the month of August. Questions like, ‘How did the summer breeze by so quickly’ and ‘Wait, what happened to my summer bucket list?!’ come to mind. Don’t let the date hinder your summer ambitions though! There’s still lots of time to check some of those items off your summer ’17 bucket list. One quintessential summer activity that you definitely don’t want to miss out on is a trip to the beach. A bonus to living in one of our Brampton, Kleinburg, or Whitby communities? The perfect beach day isn’t that far away! Here are some options for a day of sand and sun nearby.
When decorating their homes, there are two camps of people. Those who hold back, and those who do not. While we’re fans of all types of design, we completely understand the desire to keep things neutral in your home, because they’re timeless! However, part of the fun in having your own home is getting to infuse a little personality into each room. One way to do this is to add a pop of colour to the space you’re decorating. We spend a lot of time perusing the best home decor on Instagram, and lately have seen a lot of design – from furniture to decor accents – using one particular colour. Here’s how to add a pop of blue anywhere in your home.
We don’t want to stress you out prematurely, but we wanted to give you a friendly reminder that there’s only one month of summer remaining. No need to panic, though! There’s still lots of time to make your summer even better than it has already been. Even if you’re not getting away this season, there’s lots going on right in town. From Saturday Night Movies to an Amazing Race event, there’s lots going on in Brampton this August. Here are some of the highlights.
There are endless reasons to claim summer is your favourite of the seasons, but one reason stands out above the rest – the weather! Nice summer weather means you get to spend more time enjoying the outdoors. Whether it’s taking a camping trip, going for a picnic, or hosting a backyard party, a lovely summer day let’s you get outside and bask in the glorious sun. A perfect summer day is a host’s best friend. Rather than keeping your guests indoors, you can set up a lovely moment outside and host a cozy garden party. We’ve done a little research and have found everything you need to host the dreamiest garden party of the summer. From the patio set to the lighting to the dishes, these are all the garden party must-haves you’ll need for inspiration to host your own!
Nothing holds your hand, drags you to the shower and says “it’s time to roll out of bed and conquer today” like an encouraging mug of hot coffee – or iced coffee, if you’re into that. Luckily for us, Brampton feels the same way about caffeinated beverages, and proof of that lies in the fact that our city has so many cafe options to choose from! Here are ten places that will give you that zing you’re looking for!
Let’s face it folks, we live in a big, beautiful, bustling country that has so much to offer.
