Fashion Friday – Sept 18

Another week has flown by and while I’ve been busy planning my daughter’s third birthday party, I did manage to coerce my lovely friend, Sarah, into taking more photos for another edition of Fashion Friday. So with no further ado….

Tank: Ricki’s

Scarf: Plato’s Closet

Apparently I’m in a scarf phase, I’ve been wearing one almost every day and I find it an easy way to add some colour to an otherwise neutral outfit. What have you make your staple for this fall? Happy Shopping!

Totally Random Friday – March 14

This week I have written speeches, letters and emails. Writing a blog post is not exactly what I want to be doing right now. Apologies for the lack of written words. Hopefully I can make it up to you with pictures.

1. Bout this Kate and Mel orange cut-out purse this week and got this Town Shoes reusable bag. Hard to say which is going to get more use. I totally love reusable bags.

Weekly manicure: Quo by Orly in Star Formation layered over OPI Black Cherry Chutney. Top coat Seche Vite and base coat Nail Envy by OPI. I’m not thrilled with the Quo by Orly polish as it chips easily. Layering it over the OPI and under the Seche Vite makes it last a little longer.

Got the April issue of Flare in the mail this week and looking forward to reading what’s new for Spring. I love the “Punchy Pastels” tagline that I’ve been reading everywhere. Also pretty pumped that Emilia Clarke is on the cover. Season 4 of Game of Thrones starts on April 6th. Are you as pumped as my husband and I are?

Last week I was cleaning up my office and quickly snapped a pic of all the shoes (and one pair of boots) that I keep under my desk for all sorts of situations. From left to right, back to front: Clarks ankle boots, Franco Sarto round toe black patent heels, Sam & Libby black faux-patent Mary Janes, Clarks peep toe flats, black sparkly Toms and one of my favourite pairs, Nine West cheetah patterned pointy toed princess heels. How many pairs of black shoes is too many? How many pairs of shoes should you keep at work?

How was your week? Hopefully more interesting than mine. Love to hear about it, leave me a comment. Happy Shopping!

Totally Random Friday – March 7

So, I’m pretty proud of myself this week. Not only did I post three times, I’ve actually been posting in the morning so you could read them during the day. Like, this post, you’ll actually be able to read it on Friday, March 7th as opposed to being posted in the evening and read on Saturday. Okay, I’ll try not to wrench my arm patting myself on the back. Lol

This week was pretty busy. Did some shopping on Saturday, both with a client and then with my daughter. Sadly, shopping is the only exercise she gets when it has been as cold as it has. Definitely looking forward to the warmer weather and maybe some tobogganing and walks.

Here are a few things I bought or found this week:

Here are the three pieces I purchased from Peter Pilotto for Target:

Long sleeve T-shirt for a client

This dress actually ended up going back. While I loved the print, I didn’t find the cut very flattering.

And this geometric shell.  (pants from Banana Republic, jacket from Rickis, shoes Nine West and necklace from ParaMix)

Sarah Stevenson is the next designer to do a designer capsule collection at Target. Here are a few of my favourite looks.

She says she is heavily influenced by florals. Could I have found my new designer soul-mate?? Collection is unveiled March 23rd. See the whole thing here.

Found this black lace Joe Fresh t-shirt when I ran into Superstore to get diapers. Love being able to buy clothing with my groceries!

catchingfireAnybody else pumped to buy Catching Fire today? I have to say that while I loved the first movie, the second one truly blew me away. I can’t wait to see the third and fourth movies (based on the third book) coming out in Nov 2014 and Nov 2015 respectively.

 

halcyondays

For my birthday (yes, that was over six weeks ago) my husband purchased the Ellie Goulding album Halcyon Days. I am totally loving it. In fact, all three of us have become pretty big Ellie fans. My daughter stops what she is doing and starts dancing when she hears Lights, Burn, or I Need Your Love (we are also Calvin Harris fans). And I loop the album (it’s pretty big) when I’m blogging and it’s mellow enough for evening but upbeat enough to keep me grooving while I search for links and upload pictures.

How was your week? Are you enjoying the warmer temps and the snow dump? What did you buy? Leave me a comment. Happy Shopping!
