Photography: Olivia Spies a Seagull

I love, love, love this photo so much. The light, the white, the lines, the title, and imagining the excitement that Olivia must have felt when she spotted the seagull up high on the rooftop – these things are what put a smile on my face when I look at this photo. Love.

Blog Spotlight: Olivia’s Everyday Musings

Olivia’s blog, Everyday Musings, is just gorgeous. She showcases beautifully her daily experiences with food, travel and photography. I’m completely hooked!




And yes – it definitely helps that Olivia’s current adventures are in France!

Thank You Desire to Inspire!

Sending out a big thank you to Jo and Kim at Desire to Inspire for featuring White Cabana on their Easter Reading Guide. Yay!

I’m not left-handed but some of my most favourite people are. This post is for them!

Miss Moss Music Mixes

Try saying that title 10 times fast. I don’t mean to make you so silly this morning but just had to draw your attention to the music mixes over at Miss Moss. They just make my day.

What are you listening to these days? Any recommendations for the rest of us?

And the Award Goes to…

An award? For White Cabana? Aw. Thanks.

The Award (the original is green)

A while back Antonia of Swedish Love Affair was kind enough to award White Cabana with the Versatile Blogger award. How fun! Thanks Antonia! (Sorry it has taken so long to post this!)

To accept the award I have to do some sharing and pass on the award to others. Here we go!

Seven things about White Cabana:

1. I (Jordana) have loved white for at least 10 years now. When I decided to start my own blog I knew it had to revolve around my love of this colour (or is it a non-colour?).

2. The name White Cabana was shortlisted on a list of about ten possible blog names. The final decision came after some late night phone conversations with my (Jordana) parents, sister and blog coach, Johanne (who also created White Cabana’s first logo).

3. Johanne and Jordana met in graduate school. Surprisingly, they grew up in the same Toronto neighbourhood.

4. Johanne and Jordana share the same nick name…Jojo. Although they pronounce it differently.

The Jojos – back in the day

5. Jordana and Mackenzie are cousins. They both love fashion.

6. Jordana, Johanne & Mackenzie use Macbooks to write all White Cabana blog posts. Mackenzie was the first Macbook user and Johanne bought hers soon after. Jordana arrived (fashionably) late to the Macbook scene (August 2010 thanks to her brother-in-law).

7. We thank our parents for supporting our efforts, for being our number one fans and for offering their advice.

And the awards go to…

1. Designs by Nina
2. Luxe + Lilies
3. Lark + Linen
4. Curious Sofa
5. The Social Secretary
6. Bea-Cici
7. I Suwannee

Happy reading everyone!

Please be patient…
