A Thursday special for those who love being cozy.

It's pajama day in our house.  All. The. Time.
Sadly, when I say it's PJ day, for my kids, what that really means is that they're running around in their undies.
For me, that means something else, because pajama days are the best kind of days, especially on the chilly winter afternoons, ahem, nights.
So when I was contacted by the very friendly, Lindsay at Casper Mattresses to do a post on my version of bedtime style, I was more than enthused; I was ready to make her my new BFF!
What a brilliant idea! Why haven't I thought of this before???
And if you get a chance to check out  Casper, which is a new memory foam mattress company, you'll quickly see how thrilled I was when they asked me to take part in their Beauty Sleep Challenge.  Their investors are the likes of Ashton Kutcher (I may or may not have refered to myself as Mme. Kutcher when I was teaching grade 7, to amuse them.  Or me. Whatever.), Nas and designer Steven Alan. “Check out the Casper Mattress Facebook page for more! 

On me: Simon's Quilt Grunge NightshirtHUE leggings from The Bay, freshly brewed coffee, nude face and authentic bedhead. Okay, maybe not completely nude face, I did sneak some lipgloss.

I love getting ready for bed (hello, Clarisonic and Boscia Luminizing Black Mask) and who doesn't love to sleep?  It is a known fact that I need a good 8-10 hours a night to run on all levels of awesome. But what I love even more is a good pair of PJs and cozy slippers.
One of my favourite Christmas traditions is getting new flannel pajamas.  This year, both sister and I (she happens to be living with us right now) picked out the same red buffalo plaid flannel pajamas.  This can be very confusing to our husbands.  Good thing she's 8ish months pregnant.

                                           My Christmas pajama selection.

The best pajamas for me are the comfy ones, especially any onesie.  Sister Bear and I both (shocker) got red onesies last year from the Drake General Store.  They are so cute, they even have a butt flap!  Where do you get your pajamas from? Any traditions I need to know about (so I can steal them)?

Check out my Cozy Sleepwear Pinterest Board where you can find these beauties (hint, hint most of them come from my favourite Canadian department store) and then there are other great slippers and onesies too that are definite must haves for this winter!   Also check out Casper on Pinterest  for some serious bedtime encouraging posts.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I clearly need to check out Simons for some pyjamas. That nightgown with the deer on it is seriously calling my name.

    1. Yes!!! There is so much cute stuff there that is totally your style!

  2. Back from vacay and getting caught up on my favorite blogs! I LOVE flannel, cozy pajamas and honestly would stay in them all day, except my hubby seems to frown upon it. Bah humbug. LOVE your buffalo plaid :)!

    1. What's with hubbies not supporting us wearing pjs all day???

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…

London 1

Sunday/Monday was a blur.   It went from cruising around Toronto (that means shopping) with the little group of Blended Bloggers that were left over to heading to the airport to meet Dan and the kids then to an overnight flight to Dublin and then another 2ish hour flight to London.  At least the kids slept an hour or two, but I couldn't do it.   Currently in zombie mode.   When we got to our hotel (MalMaison Charterhouse Square) we had to nap. Well I had to anyway before I started losing it.   After an hour long family nap, Dan headed to work and I decided to take the kids out on an adventure in the neighbourhood.  We're only 850 metres from St. Paul's Cathedral and I hadn't visited it last time I was here so it was an easy pick. First I had to devise a plan to keep them engaged and because Pokemon is all they ever want, it was an easy bait.  The deal was that if they came and learned something with me, they got to have some Pokemon time in the area. It worked like a …
