Evening dresses with

Today's post is sponsored by All opinions are my own. offers a great selection of dresses for the important events in your life: from weddings to prom to a fancy night out, has it all.  

Holiday season is approaching and usually for me what that means is choosing a dress for a fancy Christmas social. Any excuse to pick out a new dress, really and I'm happy but there's something about Christmas music, egg nog and rum, delicious treats and a fluffly snow fall that makes me want to dress up and pretend to be fancy. This year there will be no such lavish Christmas party, but that doesn't stop me from imagining what I'd wear if I had a chance to get all beautified!
I took some time to look around Promtimes' site and was thrilled to see some categories that appealed to me. There are evening dresses, evening dresses under 50$ and even a category for pink evening dresses!  What interested me the most was the vintage evening dresses, because I like a little old school sparkle and shine.  I think it pairs perfectly with a bold glass of red and some jazz.

Here are my top 5 evening dresses for the festive season:

1- Sassy in black.  I would wear this in a heartbeat.  

2- I thought this one was simple, yet elegant enough to make you feel like a million bucks.  I love the peplum detail around the waist.

3- This is a dress I would love to wear in theory but I don't think it would look good on my short torso-ed body.  I would likely buy it and make my taller, leggier friend, Erin wear it.

4- I love the colour of this dress and the feathered skirt.

5- Lastly, this is my number one pick. The mixture of browns, creams and blacks scream Christmas and a snowy night to me.  I also love the tulle skirt and lace detail on the top.

All these dresses have the perfect amount of sparkle and flow to make for a wonderful evening.  Which one would you pick for your perfect wintery night out?
Thanks for stopping by!

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 …
