No, Hubster has not gone crazy and decided to dress in shorts and slip ons in the snow. But he did get these sweet kicks in the mail this week and couldn’t wait to put them on and show them off. As most of you can recognize these are Toms shoes, a company that gives a pair of shoes to an child in need every time you purchase a pair of shoes. I think this a noble cause and I’m happy...
An Ode to Orange
I was flipping through last month’s issue of InStyle magazine and they did a little spread on the color of the moment and it was Tangerine! Orange is so bright and vibrant with a million wonderful shades, orange can bring life to any outfit. I fell in love with every piece on that page, and yearned to fill my life with orange. But I quickly realized I had already accumulated many orange...
So, it’s been snowing like crazy the last couple of days. We are totally back in the winter land again. Which is cool, I love the snow and it’s super pretty. BUT I am so sick of gearing up each day to go outside. I am really sick of putting on these boots everyday. They are really nice boots, but I only have one pair of boots so it means the same thing everyday. It’s a little...
Chickens Wings Recipe
So, I was all set to do a lovely outfit post and then… …this happened. Can you believe it? Needless to say I am a little disappointed. Plus it’s preventing me from showing you my snazzy outfit because after walking home in this my mascara was halfway down my cheeks and my hair deflated. Instead I’m going to share my recipe for baked chicken wings! You’ll Need ...
When I got home from work today to snap some shots of my Hubster for today’s post I found him already in his pj’s and asleep (at 5pm!) So, I pulled up this great old photo from last summer, I have to say I like this outfit better than his ratty Pajamas. I think he looks like a member of Mumford and Sons, and he explained that he plans on taking all his fashion cues from the band....

Charlie Brown Moleskine planner 4. Post It Note pad 5. Neopiko pen 6. House & office keys 7. Photo of Hubster and I 8. Lipstick -Tutti Frutti, Blueberry Muffin, That’s My Pink, Coral 9....
Wanna Be A Guest Blogger?!
Hello there gorgeous, smart, funny, creative, wonderful you! Now that I’ve buttered you up I need to ask a favor. The Hubster and I are taking a little trip back home on the second and third week of May, which means for two long weeks I will be wandering around Southern New Brunswick visiting friends and family. So, I don’t really think I will have constant internet access or time to...
Do You Want Fries With That?
How amazing is this print eh? I am seriously in love with it and it’s not even my style. But once in a while you see something and it just speaks to you and you know you can’t live without it. Every time I put this dress on it puts a huge smile on my face, and brightens up my whole day. Oh, and the dress is so comfortable. And it has pockets. And there is really nothing bad to be...
Take A Look At Yourself
Okay, so I know it’s not great blogger form to take your photos in the mirror BUT my hair looked so good in the morning with it’s natural curls that I thought I’d better quickly take some photos before the wind deflated them (see below). I’m smiling, but my hair isn’t. Wind is so cruel. And say hello to my blur of cat Felix. Dress- Suzy Shier Pleather Jacket...
On Saturday night my Hubster played his first professional gig. He was amazing if I do say so myself, he’s really quite the musician. And if you think I am a little too bias, I did record his show and I hope to put up a little video later this week (once I figure out how to get the video from the mini DVD to my computer). Jeans- Old Navy T-shirt- Underoath Blazer- Thrifted I think his...
Have you ever gotten up in the morning, put on an outfit and felt great?! It’s happened to me a time or two, when an outfit comes together perfectly and it makes the start to your day awesome. That was totally my morning. It started off wonderful; I had coffee with the hubster, put together this outfit and headed out the door to work. Then my day went to shit. I know it’s bad fashion...
Flowers in the Snow
Hey Party Peeps! Look at me, I am finally taking photos outside again. I mean, I am just standing on my balcony but it is outside. It was a balmy 5C degrees out today! I love this dress, so much. I think it is super flattering, especially since I have a fair bit of hips to me. However, I feel like this outfit is so uninspired. There is no real pizzazz to this outfit, no edge. I am looking into...
A casual leisure walk outfit. The different grays in this outfit add a put together feel to this relaxed outfit. Sunnies, Jeans, Jacket- Old Navy Tee- Glamour Kills (Do Things with passion or not at all) much love.
These photos are a lie. By the way I am dressed it would look like I am enjoying some warm weather because I have no socks or tights on, no sweater or scarf. This is all a lie. It is still in the negatives most days, and there is an abundance of snow on the ground. But yesterday I felt like dressing as if it were spring in my part of the world too. So two minutes after I took these photos I had...
Colorful Art Journal
I have always started journals and never gotten more than a few pages in. I tried written journals, photo journals, collage journals and every other sort of journal in between. But the other week I was reading A Beautiful Mess written by the talented Elsie and she wrote a post on making an art journal. Then I had an epiphany! I shouldn’t try to make a journal that fits into a box, like a...
I am in love with this dress, since the moment I saw it I knew we were going to be best friends. The color, the cut, the crinoline all come together to become my dream dress. It makes me feel like a pretty little 1950’s housewife, even if I did have to go to work today. Dress- Suzy Shier Shoes- The Gap Cardigan- Old Navy Accessories- Gifted and Thrifted I am loving this print; the...
As promised the weather is on our side now so I am back doing menswear Mondays! Which is all thanks to my lovely Hubster who makes the best model in my opinion and is very patient to do this for me. Jeans-Old Navy Sweater- Mark’s Work Wearhouse T-shirt- Haines Leather Jacket- For Him U.K. Sunnies- H&M What I love about this outfit is that it’s got a bit of edge due to...
Fringe (and no this is not about my DIY bangs)
I love every season where fringe is present in fashion. I find it so inspiring; I love the way it moves and swooshes. I love that it can be any color, any length and on anything. So here is my DIY, add fringe to anything. Or everything. Here I have is an old clutch that I haven’t used in a couple of years. I opened it up and hot glued a piece of black fringe to the bottom of the...
