Styling the graphic tee

Today is my day!!!!!! I picked the graphic tee prompt, so you should go over to The Blended Blog to see how I styled it and for a little fun.   But first let's talk about the wonderful people in my world.  I had this little idea about creating a meet up with all of my favourite people.  I was even going to invite some readers that I want to meet, but then I got nervous and didn't.  I even made an invitation.  Turns out Mother Nature didn't want us to get together anyway, because it snowed that day.  Not a day for a BBQ in the park.

In yesterday's post I talked about courage being a goal for my year.  I wish I hadn't backed down from inviting people, I will get over this self-doubt, I hope.  I was even nervous to email Laura to ask if I could co-host with her- but I'm glad I did because I feel a connection to her and really enjoy her voice and her style.  There are many other bloggers too that I hope to reach out to and connect with.  But not just bloggers, other people in my world that I want to get to know better.  You'll have to come back tomorrow (yes, 4 posts in a row!) to hear my impressions on meeting my blogging friends for the first time in Vegas.

Back to my botched effort at reaching out to readers and my friends.  It didn't happen, but nonetheless, those wonderful people sent me pictures of their graphic tees and how they wear them.  My vision was to do a photoshoot at the park on the day that we didn't get together and you know what, I like this too.

It's so important to surround yourself with wonderful people, isn't it?

Now head on over to these beautiful ladies' blogs and see what they're wearing! Don't forget to stop at

  6. I look at you and see courage and beauty and awesomeness. And a really good friend.

  7. It's really great that you've been connecting with other bloggers, and even had the chance to meet them and establish friendships. I was able to meet some fashion bloggers recently, and it was a truly memorable time!!

    Today's Post (so exciting!!): Alena, again!

  8. Real men make girls, baha ha! I LOVE that shirt. I need to get it for Russ :P!

  9. Heading over to TBB now. High five on writing posts for four days in a row.

  10. You are a rockstar. And BBQ sounds tasty.

  11. Oh no, I hope you're able to have your BBQ on a non-snowy day. I think courage is a great word to focus on. My word this year is similar--confidence. I feel like you have to have courage to be confident, and that's something I'm working on.

  12. Love this so much! You are the life of the party!

  13. bahahahah- I don't normally feel that way

  14. Day five coming on Friday. immaonaroll

  15. With my blingy necklace, for sure!

  16. Yes, they are definitely similar. Are you doing anything specific to work on yours?

  17. I agree...very wonderful and surreal.

  18. Shame that you didn't have the meetup, but maybe you have the courage to give it a go in future! It sounds like fun, and you still got lots of great photos even if you weren't all in once place to take a big group shot! :)

    Away From The Blue Blog

  19. So I always set monthly goals for myself and try to check-in on those goals weekly (TRY being the operative word) and at the same time check-in on my big goals/ word. I feel like sometimes I'm better about consciously focusing on it than others. One thing I'm doing is trying to say yes to more things outside my comfort zone. It's a work in progress :) How about you?

  20. Here's to hoping for more courage.

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 …
