Historic Beauty Bluenose II Sails into Toronto Harbour

Canada's most famous ship sailed into Toronto's harbour yesterday to help launch the 2008 Nautical Festival and give a boost to Nova Scotia tourism. The racing schooner first set sail in 1963, following in the lead of its sister ship the Bluenose, built in 1921 and known as the Queen of the North Atlantic. The schooner will be docked at Queens Quay and open to the public until the 23rd.

Rudsak Sale A Rare Treat

Walked into Rudsak today with my mind set to drop some serious dough on a slick new leather laptop bag. It's my birthday after all and I owe it to myself. They've got so many beautiful handbags, jackets, shoes and accessories too, in vivid colours like yellow and blue, as well as muted tones of cream, grey, brown and black. Was shocked to see how much they'd dropped their prices, on a whim it seems, anywhere from 20% to 70% off.

I'd had my eye on a luxurious looking italian leather tote in what I like to call winter white but it made more sense to go for my favourite colour since eveything else I buy these days is grey - strange isn't it? That meant the bag I wanted, large enough to slide my 13inch macbook into, went from its usual $240 to $75 dollars! Insane! The shopgirl helping me out was rather shocked herself. I'd never seen prices so low there, neither had she I was led to believe. Either way I walked out a winner, and chances are I'll be back for more - think I'll want a summery canary coloured wallet to complement my carry all.

Rudsak is Canadian label. Rudsak - 315 Queen Street West. See site for more stores.
