Totally Random Friday – March 13th

Happy Friday the 13th! I missed last week and I bought a bunch of stuff so I’m excited to talk about it.

First of all it was my niece’s birthday and we had a great time on Sunday afternoon at Great Big Adventure. For her birthday we bought her a matching raincoat, boots and umbrella from the Disney Store.

Grandma is a big fan of unbirthdays so the other three grandchildren got umbrellas too.



Aren’t they great?

I also picked up a new duvet cover at Quilts, Etc last week. It’s bright and summery and masculine enough that my husband doesn’t complain.

My new washing machine also came this week. Hubby and I have actually been fighting about who gets to do laundry. I’m sure everything in the house will be washed in the next couple of weeks while we try out all the features.

So, all in all, it’s been a pretty busy couple of weeks. What have you been up to? Happy Shopping!

Totally Random Friday – Jan 31

So, it’s been…. awhile since we had a TRF. Sorry about that. January is just such a boring shopping month. Once you get over spending any money or gift certs that you got for Christmas, it’s all over and you just get to watch the email pore in from your favourite stores as they lower and lower the price on items, practically begging you to buy something, anything. I don’t know about you but I’m holding out for when my mom, my daughter and I go to Toronto in three weeks. And then I’m buying spring stuff. Screw you winter!

Anyways… some exciting thing did happen this month and here they are:

It was my birthday.


I entered The Lacquer Legion challenge and created a manicure that I believe embodied the theme, “Reinvention.” Original idea by Polish Art Addict.


I made these amazing cookies, recipe from Bakerella. I swapped the walnuts for pistachios. Yum!


I had some boudoir pictures taken. This was the outfit I bought for the shoot (only in black, which is not on the website). If you are interested in getting boudoir shots done, I highly recommend Trina from Connections Captured. She was extremely professional and discreet. And for a limited time, she is offering an amazing package deal of $95 for 15-20 edited shots, owning the images, and the sitting fee.  It was truly an amazing experience. One that I will definitely be repeating in the future.


Overall, not bad for one of the coldest winters on record. What have you bought this month? What are you looking forward to for spring? Happy Shopping!
