Valentine Gift Guide with Uncommon Good

Shoes to Shiraz' Valentine Gift Guide with Uncommon Good

I was approached by the friendly people @ Uncommon Goods to share with you my favourite gift ideas from their Valentine's Day collection.  Here's the thing....even if they hadn't approached me, their site is one that I would scour for unique gifts for the fun people in my life.  I love finding funky and unique jewelry for my sister or humourous presents for my ridiculous brother. Wait.  Or was that ridiculous presents for my humourous brother.  Regardless if it's birthdays, Christmas presents, random Tuesday gifts, Uncommon Goods has every person or event covered.  I love sites that offer quirky and original gifts and if that's what you're looking for too, then UnCommonGoods is for you.  In fact, I got side tracked whilst browsing and came across a bunch of presents I wanted to get for the kids in my life....

But let's talk Valentine's Day, which sometimes does and then sometimes doesn't live up to our expectations.  Essentially, the men are easy to buy for, because what they really want is free, but if you aren't into that and have a headache or something, there are some helpful gift ideas for Valentine's Day here.  And really sisters, you know that the other in your life will either tune in to your utmost desire and really be on par with your wants/needs in life (read or they'll completely forget and get you either a) a random card or b) a vacuum.  Therefore in case you are, ahem, shopping for yourself- I picked out my favourite gifts for all the different and wonderful women in my life.  Maybe you are one of them and should just order it for yourself.....

The Book Worm / The Foodie / The Boho Babe/ The Eccentric One/ The Fashionista/ The Geek

And husbands, if you are still reading...there is a handy page on Uncommon Goods which organizes and lists them all as gifts for wives.  So go ahead, do yourself a favour and order that wonderful woman something.


This is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own and husband, if you are ready this, I would like all of the above for Valentine's Day.

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 …
