The perfect fall red

September 22, 2017
orangey red sweater fall outfit

I have become a bit obsessed with the orangey red colour this season. That perfect colour that isn’t exactly pumpkin orange but more the shade of turning leaves. It is a shade that screams FALL. It may be cliche but I am ready for some real fall weather. We have been having more summer weather in the past two weeks than we have had all of July and…

Mr and Mrs Italy Parka Dupes

September 20, 2017
mr. and mrs. italy parka dupes

Whether you have heard or Mr and Mrs Italy Parkas or not you can agree that they take something fairly regular looking and make them look super luxurious and glam. Their parkas are instantly recognizable for their brightly coloured fur linings that take an ordinary parka and kick it up a notch. As much as I think these parkas are to die for their price tags are out…

Pink Pants

pink banana republic pants

Every time I wear these pants my daughter gets so excited. They are her FAVOURITE. I have to admit they are really fun. I mean it is hard to be in a bad mood when you are wearing pink pants. I have taken pictures of these pants that I haven’t posted. It was one of those outfits that I thought looked good until I looked at the photographs…


Convertible Backpack Travel Style

September 14, 2017
convertible backpack travel style

I have always seen two purposes for backpacks. One is as a book bag for school. Everyone at one time has used a traditional canvas backpack for lugging their homework back and forth from school. The other purpose for a backpack is travel. Whether it is hiking or sightseeing or theme parking backpacks come in handy for any sort of travel. I used a quilted backpack while we…

Falls Calling

September 11, 2017

As I look out my window onto the forest behind us I see the leaves starting to change. Fall is coming and it is especially obvious first thing in the morning. This year my kids moved to a brand new school in our neighbourhood and because there are no safe walk ways they are on the bus. This blanket cape that I have had for a few years…

Underwear Drawer Update

September 10, 2017
underwear drawer update

I feel like as women we spend so much time finding the perfect bra. One that is supportive and flattering. And it is a full time job because over time the whole support thing starts to degrade. But our underwear don’t get as much attention. Especially the every day stuff. I am guilty of just buying the cheap cotton undies to get through life. The other week there…

Everlane Day Heel Review

everlane day heel review

After returning a few pairs of Everlane shoes (including these), I had some credit to use up. Of course it was burning a hole in my virtual pocket. I decided to see what the fuss was all about for one of Everlane’s most popular shoes right now. This is my Everlane Day Heel Review.  Everlane Day Heel Review The Day Heel is described as a heel that you…

End of Summer Style

August 31, 2017
paper bag waist pants

I took these outfit photos last week or so before it got really chilly in the mornings. This is my end of summer style. The pants I posted a few weeks ago when I first got them. They are a lovely summer pant. So relaxed and great if it is hot outside but you still want to wear trousers. I paired a top from Loft (last years collection)…

Cool Transition Mornings

This morning I wore a blanket scarf and I wasn’t even hot. Mornings have been in the single digits lately and it is a crisp reminder that fall is coming. In fact I have caught myself googling is fall coming early this year since we didn’t have much of a summer at all this year. The verdict is that September is supposed to be above average? I wonder…


Lug Travel Bags Review

August 23, 2017
lug travel bags review

I stumbled upon the Lug travel bags a few years ago. I bought the Lug Cartwheel bag for my husband so that he had a decent carry on bag. Turns out Oprah recommended the same bag as part of her favourite things. It also helped that one of the founders is Canadian. I have since picked up a few more bags so that everyone in our family has…
