I can't tell you how excited I was the day I got a comment on this blog by someone I didn't know in some way. Up to that point all my comments had been real life friends or my social media friends or other local mommy bloggers.   And here was this lovely comment from Valerie who I believe […]

Last week Women in Leadership Foundation hosted their mentorship picnic at Locarno Beach.  It was a lovely afternoon with the ladies. Most importantly it was an opportunity to run into Lili Vieira de Carvalho again. I met Lili at last year's Women in Leadership Foundation Gala (she and a girlfriend won  tickets from @miss604).    She is now taking part […]

Some more scarf ideas from "The Knaughty Look". This first two I tried with my scarf clip without success.  The first one my clip kept slipping off.  I might try it again with a heavier scarf.  And even with the safety pin on the 2nd one I couldn't make it work nicely.  If you have better luck post […]

Some of the lovely Vancouver Moms Bloggers got together with some of the top PR folks in town a few weeks back. There was great discussion. And, of course, great shoes.  Wish the same could be said for my photography, but the shoes should stand for themselves, even if a bit blurry.

To continue with this week's scarf theme, here is the lovely Harriet from See Theo Run looking oh so European casual in this white oblong H&M scarf. (and apologies to the beautiful Harriet for my horrible lighting that shades her face and my inability to figure out how to fix it in photoshop).

Last week I wore my new H&M scarf to work.  At lunch I met up with the lovely @alexishinde from Chill Monkeys and Sue Sinclair from @raspberrykids for lunch at the local Go Fish restaurant.  Alexis was kind enough to take some photos of different ways I could wear the oblong scarf.  Style #1 - This […]

So I am madly packing for my cross-country summer adventure.  I have to pack for 3 different situations - cottage, camping and BlogHer in NYC.     My plan was to take pictures of my Blogher outfits and post them for your comments. Well I ran out of time for that idea.  So the BlogHer outfits are chosen and are sitting ready to go […]

I've always been a big fan of scarves.  If you look back at this post on some of my 80's and 90's outfits you'll see a lot of scarves  here or here.    In fact I have a small trunk full of scarves. All sorts. All colours.  But the best thing in my scarf tickle trunk is […]

Some accessories that I have bought in the past few months.  Will try to get pictures of me in these items... soon.    These were inexpensive ways to update my summer wardrobe. 

  Places I LOVE.   This is the first in what I hope will be an ongoing series on places or things that I love.  These will include places I've loved for years and new discoveries that I make. In all cases they will be places or products that I personally use and are not paid […]
