The Looks

Wednesday: What I wanted to wear vs. what I should really wear.  I didn't really love this look...I think it was the scarf with a poncho that was new to me.

Then the next day I tried it again whilst heading out to the kid's Cmas concert...and I LOVED this look:

Thursday- cozy outfit for morning school run. This one lasted all day and the puffer was even good as a jacket later on when it got above zero warm.  Practically bikini weather, if you ask me.

Friday- the new sweater (same, similar)  which was cozy for a day where I needed some extra warmth and cuddles.   
Saturday: Embellished sweater and skinnies. Nope. Cozy sweater with pearls and the go-to leggings. Yup, that's more like it.

Note: the outfits end here. I've been wearing the same lulus and Harry Potter Tshirt all week. I've gone rogue, but when grieving one must be cozy, so says me.  Thursday is my Grams' funeral, I promise I won't wear said lulus and Tshirt to it.

Also sharing the scarf that I got in our blogger's scarf exchange.
I sent my scarf to my friend, Vanessa and I received a scarf from a girl I went to high school with. It has been great reconnecting with her over Instagram and through this exchange.  Also...she picked out a beautiful scarf!!! It's pattern mixing defined, with my favourite patterns: plaid and polka dots!
Thanks, Johanna!!

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 …
