Grouchy Deena: Style Link Up.

Truth be told, I'm in a pissy mood: more pool woes.

I'm sitting here, totally and completely unable to do anything while winds of 30 km are making my pool billow and balloon.  I doubt it will be standing in the morning, when winds of 80 km are supposed to hit.  Sigh.  I see all my summertime dreams being blown away and I am so angry.

So I'll roll with this picture for my outfit post today- except I wish it said 'Deena' instead of Toronto.

All I want to do is float.  I know, there could be worse- I have a roof over my head and health.  Gawd, this isn't even a tornado that Beth and her family lived through.  I'm being ridiculous. I have a good life.  I'll stop bitching.  I really need to gain some perspective before I lose my marbles over something I can't control. 

It's bad enough that this stupid windy night with a stupid useless contractor who couldn't fix the pool when he said he would and won't return my texts, had me stress eating....yummy ketchup chips and mini eggs were the culprit.  And also a Tennants.  
Might as well be completely real here and get all the good out.
At least I had Alynne and Kyla trying to crack me up via was sending me pictures of her dressed as a carrot Bitmoji and the other was suggesting I cuddle up in my pretty chair and sit facing the other way from the window with a book.

Alright- I'm done.  Got all the venting out of my system and I'm feeling better already.  Here's to hoping the pool is still standing in the morning and to fun fashion linkups.

on Tracy.

I've had some time over the past couple days to take a walk back through my life while revisiting all the photos and remembering old moments. It has become a part of the process I need in order to say good-bye- it's almost like I relive my life through my memories of who that person was to me so that I can fully understand the impact they had on my life.  
On Sunday heaven gained a shining star: our cousin, Tracy, passed away unexpectedly.  Tracy was young, she was vibrant, she was a creator, a dreamer, a free-spirit.  Her death is still a shock and it leaves such a huge hole in many lives.
Growing up, Tracy was that older cousin I always looked up to.  She was stuck babysitting me while I was busy admiring her gorgeous thick, curly hair, her social butterfly status and determined confidence.  I have so many memories from our frequent visits to Edmonton to hang out with my cool, older cousins. All three of them (Tracy has two older sisters- Tisa and Glenna) were the perfect f…

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…
