The winner and some Mother's Day stuff

Congrats to Jill (Doused in Pink) who won my giveaway last week for a Simons giftcard, which makes me really happy because she had just found Simons (without me having to push her there) a couple weeks ago.  I hope you can find something fun.  I have not met Jill, but she comes across as a confidant woman, full of great ideas and very creative.  She also has a great fashion sense.  Is it weird that by following other fashion bloggers, you feel like you know their style?

So because I feel like it and because it was my plan all along, I decided that I would pick out what I would pick out for the winner. Thankfully, I knew all the entrants..that would have been tough otherwise.

I picture Jill as tall...like 5'10 and thin, so I think she could rock a billowy maxi dress this summer or one of those long t-shirt dresses that look awesome on tall skinny people (and not so awesome on the short like myself because they are suddenly full length on me and I look like I'm in a cardboard bag).  Click on the images for more info on the dresses.  Whatdayathink, could you see Jill in this? I kinda want the one in the middle.



And while we're talking about Jill, you could head over to the Blended Blog and learn a little more about her here.

I find it hard to believe that May is already next week, which means that Mother's Day is coming too.  Jill, you should treat yourself to something super nice because I know you're a great mom.  I find Mother's Day a tough one to celebrate because I get stuck between wanting to do something for my mom and wanting to spend the time with my kids.  One thing I will be doing before Mother's Day is ....wait...Mom, you can stop reading here. Have a nice day. You look lovely today.  Come back on Wednesday......anyway, what I will be doing before Mother's Day is checking out the Charm Brand Glamulet bracelet campaign.  Jewelry is always a great choice for a present, especially jewelry that you can personalize.  Fun fact- all my friends have blinged out Pandora bracelets.  Check out Charm Brand for a more affordable version!  Also, good news for you, my readers are getting a 15% discount with the code BB-MOM.  I have received a discount for doing this post from Glamulet.



Happy Monday!

  4. Glad that Jill won, and I love what you picked out for her. I've never been a fan of dangly bracelets, but my mom loves them. Will definitely check out Charm Brand for her!

  5. Congrats to Jill, I just love her blog and her style. I love your picks for her--especially that first dress! I don't think I could pull it off, but for a tall gal it would look great!

  6. I dig the dresses! The last one is my favorite. Growing up we spent the morning with my mom, and went to grandma's in the afternoon. Sometimes the whole family on my moms side would go to a fancy restaurant. I'll have to check out that jewlery site, since I still have yet to get a Mother's Day gift. Plus 15% off!? I'm suckered in!

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 rambling....today's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it. Muahahahahha...here'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 …
