Chatelaine's 85th Anniversary at CityLine

Last Tuesday I had the pleasure of being invited to a special taping of Cityline here in Toronto - a taping for Chatelaine Magazine's 85th anniversary. (Insert freak out moment) I know a lot of my readers are based in the US, so I'll explain the significance of this occasion -

Chatelaine is Canada's #1 Magazine and with the addition of Jane Franscico as Editor in Chief recently it has gone through an amazing revamp. In addition there has been the addition of Emma, one of my favourite bloggers to the team as their Home Editor (Yay!)

I grew up with both Chatelaine, and CityLine as a kid - Chatelaine was always around the house as my Mom read it (I used to flip through it as a child) and CityLine I watched religiously as a teen - it's where I fell in love with Home Decor and DIY's watching Steven Sabados and of course Fashion Fridays were a favourite.

Both CityLine and Chateline have gone through transformations - so a little bit of nostalgia, but because of their continued updates, they continue to speak to me as a young adult, young Mom, and professional. So to be invited to an event where these two Canadian institutions were combining - was pretty awesome moment.


Ceri Marsh from The Sweet Potato Chronicles and Jane Francisco, Editor in Chief of Chatelaine
I got to sit in the back row with a few other media like Ceri Marsh and Taylor Kaye. I saw on twitter that Jen was actually one of the audience members and got giddy for her, knowing that the show was jam packed with giveaways.

Giveaways? Oh yes. Ok, can I explain my envy that this was one....


Every audience member got TWO round trip tickets anywhere Porter Airlines Flies. GET OUT. I looooove Porter - I flew them for the first time when I went to New York for the Gift Show and LOVED them. I actually said to my Mom that I'd consider taking Oscar on a plane as long as it was via Porter because of the low stress and comfortable accommodation they have. So I was super jealous of all the audience members.

The show was jam packed with giveaways for everyone... A gorgeous "Chatelaine Extraordinaire diamond stackable ring" by The Right Hand Gal -



There was also a set of 4 Royal Doulton Pop in for Drinks Collection Champagne Flutes, and oh my goodness THIS Roots Bag. I was dying in the back row knowing everyone was getting one, and may have squealed with delight when I was given one at the end of the show too. I LOVE it. Read more about the bag here.


Seriously, it's SO CHIC. It's so, so pretty.

So you too can take part - Chatelaine is having 85 days of giveaways over on their website and you can take part in entering to win. YAY! But I'm also going to give away five Chatelaine Issues to readers. I know it's not a major giveaway but I'm personally going to buy you some magazines and ship them to you. US, Canada, Switzerland - anyone can enter, I'll ship you a magazine. Just comment below and tell me what your favourite magazine is. (I'm actually interested to know!) I know a lot of us have a few favourites, so tell me what you love to read. Contest ends Monday, May 20th at midnight.

xoxo Linds
