A morning of style with home baker and lover of pastries Mav

In this issue BijouxCloset talks to one of its most loyal customers about her passion of food and take on style while managing a hectic schedule in the bustling city of Toronto.

A bit about yourself: An actuary by profession, I have a passion for baking and creating plated desserts. My newest venture MavzMakes is all about catering sweet delights, whether its cakes, macarons or other mini desserts. Follow my instagram account @MavzMakes


Guilty Pleasure: Ohh this one is hard, there are so many but I have to say nothing beats a good gooey chocolate brownie. If I am in the mood for something a bit fancier, I don’t need to look much further than some of the great local patisseries here in Toronto.

Favourite book: I currently read “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime” by Mark Haddon and loved it! For anything baking related I am currently pouring over “PÂTISSERIE” by Melanie Dupuis and and “Éclairs" by Christophe Adam.

Favourite Holiday: It’s a tie between Istanbul in Turkey, Sorrento in Italy and London, England. All of these places are flowing with great culture, art and food.

Favourite Jewelry to Pack: Did I mention I love accessories! Earrings, bracelets, rings, necklaces - I find i’m always carrying a bagful when I travel. I have a number of chunkier bold statement pieces and also smaller elegant pieces. I like to be able to match something to each outfit.

Accessories to pack for travel

Best Dining Experience in Toronto: Chef Claudio Aprile had a restaurant Origin near the St. Lawrence market neighborhood which my husband and I loved to go to for weekend brunch! Their glazed banana french toast with coconut, peanut brittle and pineapple is the best!

Your style statement: I love accessories! No mater what style i’m sporting, I will always use complementary accessories to finish my look. For clothing I like to mix it up, I don’t subscribe to any one particular style.
