Megan te Boekhorst, Toronto

Hi. I'm Megan.

I brought my West Coast soul to the city of Toronto in order to build the creative empire of my dreams. Never one to take the traditional route, I've lived life on my own terms since 1991. Currently working in Public Relations while rocking the side hustle lifestyle that brings me unstoppable passion. 

In A Sequoia is for those who own being a bad ass, vulnerable bitch. A source of inspiration for creating intention. Be unapologetically true to yourself. Live #thesequoialife.


Live a more mindful life with the sequoia life dayplanner and monthly updates from In A Sequoia!

get giving: the vino

get giving: the vino

The person who picks the bottle for the table, but always makes sure to find out what you'll be eating first. The one who recognizes a label and has probably been to the winery. Absolute wine lover. Probably has a glass in hand now (unless you're reading this before 6:00pm).

Here's the 2014 holiday gift guide for the wino you know.

wine-ny bottle tags

These cheeky, hand-stamped, re-purposed spoons make an excellent addition to any wino's collection. Also including Life Is A Cabernet, You Had Me At Merlot and others, they are sure to make the vino smile. Great decoration for their favourite bottle.

where to get: Any retailer for And Then Again

how much: $18

a bottle of red: red rooster reserve meritage 2012

Everyone goes for the Shiraz or Merlot. Surprise your vino with a Meritage. This Meritage Reserve is the β€˜King of the Flock’ with its beautiful bouquet of red and black berries standing perfectly. The grapes are hand-picked from select vineyards and lots which exhibit the potential to go into our top wines. This bottle is the perfect escape wine on a chilly winter night.

where to get: check your liquor stores or online at Red Rooster Winery

how much: $24.99

a bottle of rose: lastella 2013 lastellina rosato

A Rosato with personality and elegance. It is slightly off-dry and intensely aromatic. This style of Rosato will complement any hot summer day on the patio. The Cabernet Franc adds some beautiful spice and herbal notes while Merlot provides a melange of red and dark fruit notes.

where to get: check out where to find LaStella wines

how much: $21

As you can see, you can easily impress your vino without spending shocking amounts of money on a bottle. These are two of the best the beautiful Okanagan has to offer and are both under $30.
