Basics Challenge, week two.

Confession time.  I haven't worn one of the outfits out of the house in the 10 ish days of this challenge.  Oops.  While we're being honest, I will say that I've been mostly lazy, somewhat feeling unchallenged and a lot of just wanting to pick out my own outfits.  
I have enjoyed seeing what everyone else puts together but just lack the motivation all together.  I'm hoping I come around for the Winter Challenge which starts sometime soon.  
So what I did for this post, was take some of the pieces I like from the challenge and I created my own outfit.  Alison may very well have this coming or maybe even have had it already, but this is what I liked the best this week:

Neutral Sweater, blanket scarf (Simons, similar), jeggings (Gap) and boots (Hush Puppies).

In other news, come back on Friday and we'll be sharing recipes that have 5 ingredients or less!  I whipped up something yummy in my kitchen this past weekend for Christmas! Or a random Tuesday, because cookies.
Also, only 2 days left to enter into our giveaway! Go give these girls some love and win some money while you're at it!

  1. You and your plaid! I love that scarf! I still need to get those plaid shoes and leggings you have!

    1. I see we have the same scarf....twinning!

    1. yes, yes you do. Bonus of a blanket scarf is that you can curl up on the couch and have naps with it.

  3. I've been feeling kind of uninspired too - probably because I'm cold, and all I want to do is wear warm sweats! Hoping the Winter Challenge helps. I love the picture of you out in the snow!

  4. I haven't been doing the best job following along in this challenge either! I have been sick and tired and choosing clothes based on feeling sick and tired :) I really love that scarf! It is fantastic.

    1. I hate getting dressed when I'm tired and sick

on Tracy.

I've had some time over the past couple days to take a walk back through my life while revisiting all the photos and remembering old moments. It has become a part of the process I need in order to say good-bye- it's almost like I relive my life through my memories of who that person was to me so that I can fully understand the impact they had on my life.  
On Sunday heaven gained a shining star: our cousin, Tracy, passed away unexpectedly.  Tracy was young, she was vibrant, she was a creator, a dreamer, a free-spirit.  Her death is still a shock and it leaves such a huge hole in many lives.
Growing up, Tracy was that older cousin I always looked up to.  She was stuck babysitting me while I was busy admiring her gorgeous thick, curly hair, her social butterfly status and determined confidence.  I have so many memories from our frequent visits to Edmonton to hang out with my cool, older cousins. All three of them (Tracy has two older sisters- Tisa and Glenna) were the perfect f…

Sunshine inspired fashion

Today I'm showing you the first outfit I got on my trip to Scotland/England and it just happens to be in one of my favourite colours....yes, yellow.  I also put together some of my fave yellow picks on the interwebs for you in the above link.

I have posted a few of my fave yellow pieces before like the one with the blazer  or the one with the yellow shoes and jacket and then there is also this bag that I got in Vegas last year that always makes me swoon....

Anyway, I'm's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it.'s sneak peak.

A blogger meet up in Toronto

It was like a weekend long blind date...... e-Harmony but for friends..... Possibly one of the craziest things I've done..... But I spent the weekend with 10 other women whom I met online. Well, except for my real life bestie on the far right. We have a group of 14 bloggers who have been collabing since the spring of 2014 and what first was simple blog fun has quickly become a sisterhood.   Last year we met in Vegas, this year we settled for Toronto and had 11 members.
Trip highlights include a bus trip with wine and Niagara Falls, a walking tour of downtown Toronto, plenty of great meals, a shopping adventure and rooftop hot tubs at night.  I could go into the details, but for me, the actual trip to Toronto wasn't why I went...the Jays weren't even playing. What brings me the most joy about this trip is the fact that women from all walks of life, all ages (we had 30, 40 and 50 somethings) with a gamut of different interests took a leap of faith and traveled to meet women…
