Just One Thing – Laura Kartonchik

Just One Thing – Laura Kartonchik

Yves Saint Laurent once said “fashions fade – but style is eternal.”

We’ve found that somewhere – deep in the recesses of our individual style histories – there’s always just one thing that stands out in our minds as a crucial element or objet that highlighted a turning point in defining our personal style.

The subject of this Just One Thing Interview is our very own Laura Kartonchik – whose months-long dream of a particular pair of dove grey suede pumps served as opening statement to developing her own Signature Style.

Our Best Dad Memories

Our Best Dad Memories

Father’s Day has us thinking about our dads- what they’ve taught us, shown us, and embedded deep into our psyches. Much as we’d like to think otherwise (because really, we all want it to look easy, don’t we?), it took LOTS of hard work to get us here & make us the women that we are today, and our dads are central figures in that journey. Laura, Raquel & Shira share some of their best memories of their incredible dads and some favorite lessons learned along the way. Continue reading “Our Best Dad Memories”

15 Minutes with Raquel

15 Minutes with Raquel

Spring is here (really, we promise it is) and with it comes renewal and a chance for all of us to let the colour into our every day again, try something new, and just blow all those winter blahs away.

Here at Handled we’re having our own version of a Spring renewal, and that ever so sassy & fresh breath of air you’re feeling is our new Handler- RAQUEL!  She’s a girl who appreciates a good Zara + Missoni pairing, and is all about food, fashion, travel & dogs.  We’re oh so lucky to have her join the fam, and know you’ll love her too.

15 Minutes With Laura

15 Minutes With Laura

Does anyone else find that a new year rarely actually brings change? One always pledges to create some, but how often does that come to fruition? Fortunately for Handled, this new year has brought us the best kind of change…

Meet (drumroll, please)…LAURA, our newest Handler! Simply the fact we’ve found the one person on Earth who has to remind themselves to wear more black (no, that’s not a typo), goes to show how funky and fresh 2018 is and is going to be. We are so, so excited that Laura has joined the Handled fam, and we can’t wait for you all to read why. Continue reading “15 Minutes With Laura”

We’ve all had THAT moment…

We’ve all had THAT moment…

You know the one… it’s 2:30am, you’re doing your levelled best to get just a little bit of sleep, but your Everest-sized to-do list is haunting you.  Forget about counting sheep- you’re too busy counting how many things you have to do vs. just how little time you have to do it in.

Yup- I get it.  And that’s exactly why I launched Handled.  Because not so long ago, that was the very picture of me, and I just so desperately needed someone to help, or at least just take the edge off my growing stress level and get some of it off my hands.

But not just that.  Handle it, start to finish, without me having to worry about it getting done.  And, not just done, but Done with a capital D, to the level (or better?) that I would myself.

Even more (was I dreaming?)- it would get done, to the highest quality and attention to detail, and we’re having a laugh all the while that it’s happening?!? Continue reading “We’ve all had THAT moment…”
