The Winner of the Philips Wake-up Light Contest is…

We proceeded to the random draw between the 133 entries submitted to this contest. The happy winner is Stacy Long who prefers to wake up with a song from the FM radio.

About the Prize

The Philips Wake-up Light (HF3470) wakes you up in a natural way with light that increases gradually, simulating the sunrise. Starting half an hour before your set wake-up time, the Wake-up Light gradually fills your room with bright light like a rising sun. This light increases the level of energy hormones in your body, preparing it to wake-up.

If you are interested to buy your own, know that the series has two models: the Wake-up Light and the Wake-up Light Plus. The Wake-up Light Plus model adds 2 natural sounds, a USB playback and Dusk simulation to the Wake-up Light.

Congratulations to Stacy Long! We wish to thank all the contestants for your participation. And Stacy, make sure to check your email, we will contact you shortly.

The March episode of On Est Ensemble

on est ensemble march 2010 episode

Since last month, I am the host of a home deco segment on a French-speaking Web TV show called On Est Ensemble that is hosted by Philippe Régnoux. It is a fun experience and the team I am working with is awesome. It is a talk show co-produced by the Communauté Sépharade Unifiée du Québec and KAYAK Media.

On Est Ensemble is produced every month. The March episode is now online. My segment starts at 21:31 minutes. Elie shares a recipe after my segment. If you understand French, you will not want to miss his recipe. It is absolutely delicious. I will translate soon his latest recipe.

I also wish to thank Billie Boutique for lending me the beautiful clothes I am wearing. I selected a Tara Jarmon skirt to go with an adorable green top (maybe by Marlene Birger). The dressing rooms at Billie Boutique are stylishly girlie.

I was delighted that Rebecca Orlov of Loving Living Small who also writes about home design for Apartment Therapy asked me for an interview for the blog community blog Blog Out Loud. I admired the Blog Out Loud events since they started it last summer. In fact, it you are living in the San Francisco area, their next event will be March 4th. 2010.

Rebecca asked great questions. I talked about who I started blogging, my blogging schedule, how I found my voice for your blog and for Twitter, plus a few tips on finding a great blog theme.

Twice in the Toronto Star | Sharing Potluck and Entertaining Tips

my article for the toronto star

Yesterday, for a great day for me. I wrote an article of the printed edition of the Toronto Star about how to Make potlucks stylish. You can read my article online at YourHome.ca. I wish I could show you the printed version, which has my picture on it but a mishap at the newspaper stand here in Montreal meant that I was unable to grab a copy yesterday. Do not worry, my dear friend Eden Spodek of Barganista is sending me two copies.
