November Finds: A Style Link Up



I'm going to change up my typical "What I Wore on Wednesdays" posts to stick with the prompt from The Blended Blog for November: Fall Favourite Finds. I don't tend to buy new stuff in November or December so I want to concentrate on working with what I have and finding new ways to freshen up my look.

For today's post I had fun with lipstick and kept it real with the photos.  If you read my Monday post, you would know that I'm barely staying on top of things, so I thought I would take my pictures when I got home from work, with the makeup that was still on my face after my workout.  5:00 - 7:00 is my tiredest time of the day.  But it gets a little better after I slap on some lipstick.  I have been toying with this new shade that can be really dark when applied with multiple layers, but I haven't been that brave yet.  Instead I wear it toned down a tad.

What about you, trying any fun lipstick colours this fall?

  7. You're saying you took these pictures AFTER working out? You goddess, you look like you're ready to go for the day! I love that lipstick color on you, it is so perfect for the colder months! I'm with you, I never buy anything this time of year so I'm trying to revamp what I already own by mixing things up with my makeup, accessories, etc. You look great! XO -Kim

  8. I like the lipstick - looks purplish. Last time I wore my purple lipstick Grady asked me why I looked like a vampire. What does he know?

  13. When I had it on in the morning with full makeup and a choker...Dan kept calling me 'Grade 9 Deena'

  14. Classic pearls are my go-to piece.

  15. I like the 'found' part of that. I need to clean all the random lipsticks out of my purse.

  16. It's sad how we can be our own worst critics, no? I just look at those pictures and think...well, I won't say it on here :)

  17. Definitely a bit better. Fun lipstick helps.

  19. I tend to really love dark colors in the fall! I'll go as extreme as a rich wine color, but I have to have an outfit I feel confident in to pull it off:) Love that necklace!

  24. I've been totally failing on the lipstick front. You are looking fancy and I think you would look even more like a rockstar with it darker.

  25. Awesome fall color!! You look beautiful as ever!!

  26. I need a little more confidence to go complete dark on this one, but I will get there.

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 …
