Spring finally seems to have arrived - well until tomorrow when it changes its mind.  No matter what the weather man decides, the magazines and blogs are all talking about what is hot for spring.    Frankly almost everything seems to be in this year.   And many of them seem to overlap each other.  But here […]

Last week my son was sick, so it is logical that I spent all this week sick.  So I haven't had the brain power (head to full of... well you can imagine) to write any posts. But I'm tired of seeing my silly Iggy Pop post from last weekend. So here is a video done […]

Not sure how I got on the mailing list for Man of Action Figures. But I have to admit to loving this Iggy Pop figure.   I've always had just the tiniest bit of a crush on Iggy.  Even though I'd likely be too scared to talk to him in person.  The figurine doesn't make him […]

And she rocked this great tweed dress.  The best part it was […]

I'm not sure why but last Friday I felt a bit like a Charlie perfume ad.  For those of us of a certain age we remember Shelley Hack, before she became an angel, as the model in the Charlie perfume ads.  There were apparently other women who did Charlie ads, but I always think of […]

Today is National Denim Day, one of Canada's largest single day fundraisers for breast cancer. Cure Foundation is encouraging everyone to wear their jeans to work to bring awareness (and raise funds) to help fight breast cancer. The idea is wear your jeans to work, donate $5 and get a lovely pink ribbon to show […]

Spring finally seems to have arrived - well until tomorrow when it changes its mind.  No matter what the weather man decides, the magazines and blogs are all talking about what is hot for spring.  - Whites - Minimalism - Colour blocking -  Patterns - 70s - Now here is my personal list of what […]

It was 19.5 years ago that I saw my first opera and I fell in love.  I was a recent University graduate doing a work exchange (through AISEC) in Hungary.  Our group of international students were open to taking in all sorts of culture. And in 1991 Hungary, culture was a very cheap thing to […]
