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!

Valentine’s Day sweet treats

I’ve never been big on Valentine’s Day. Flowers are overpriced, chocolates give me hives and the restaurants all are crowded. If it were up to me, the custom would be to send your lover shoes or a great purse.

But since it’s not up to me, here are some sweet treats for you (and I) to drool over on this lovely Hallmark-made-up holiday. Feel free to send this list to your honey so they know what you really want. 😉

I am crazy over these silver ballet flats from Joe. They will be perfect for work, shopping and date nights walking down Corydon.

OOTB cardigan

This darling cardigan lends itself to spring but will keep you toasty warm while the temperatures slowly climb to above zero. Available at Out of the Blue

aritziadress

This cute dress from Artizia also comes in a gorgeous red colour, perfect for Valentine’s Day.

CMleatherlacedress

Rejoice leather lovers, leather continues to be hot this season. But bargain hunters need not apply: this gorgeous white leather laser cutout dress from Club Monaco will set you back $995.

I picked up a bib necklace from Paramix last week and caught myself wanting more than one including this Peter Pan collar and floral choker. Check out her great selection on Facebook or Instagram.
