When I visited 10th and Proper to check out there summer sale I bought a great denim wrap dress by local designer Jovani (seen here at Blogher). It has a really interesting cut away in the back, which doesn't enhance any back-fat and can be worn with a regular bra.  Except that the dress needs a […]

Following my trend of posting my review the day of the next episode.   But hey I could be known for much worse things in life. This was such a fun episode to watch.   I think it might actually be my favourite episode ever.   I loved that they understood Noel and never tried to make her […]

While on my Blogher road trip I had jeans on my list of things to buy. I wanted dark wash boot leg jeans to wear running after an almost 4 year old, but also jeans that would look great hanging with other adults. I had fantastic luck and scored not one but two new pairs […]

Really don't know what what I was thinking telling everyone I'd run a What Not to Wear Review last week - when I was organizing a big event early Saturday morning.  So after a great event and a couple of days to veg out, I'm ready to write my review. Hey it only took me […]

Last Friday I experimented with some bright colour blocking to work.  I realized after I was at work that none the items I wore were over $50.  Who says it has to cost a lot to look great?!? I wore this outfit because I wanted to see how my new mustard cardigan would work with […]

I will be honest. I haven't quite forgiven TLC for moving What Not to Wear to Tuesday nights.   There is nothing nicer after a long busy week than to plunk down on the couch for some friday fashion candy. But it hasn't stopped me from getting my fix of Stacy and Clinton.  I just PVR […]


So over our week long road trip to San Diego in our snazzy Chevrolet Traverse I got a reputation for saying "random" things.   Including calling myself a Douche Canoe while driving along I-5 somewhere in California, and a twitter debate about exit 172, or was that 176?!?. Check our #traversetrip twitter stream for some of […]

So my netbook had a mini breakdown during Blogher. I can't blame it really it was a crazy busy trip with blogging on my lap in the backseat of the Traverse and then all those sessions and parties. The unfortunate result was that I couldn't download any of my outfit pictures after the first day.  […]

Yesterday was a long drive from Sacramento to Portland. But we are a well oiled machine and were on the road, coffee'd, gased and driving just after 8am.  We didn't stop to buy anymore food, we have enough of that, and we had a nice picnic lunch at a rest stop in Weed.  The result was that […]


Waaaay back in the day, specifically the 90s when I was in my 20s.  Sundays were the day that you could recover from a long busy work week and perhaps some overindulgance from the Saturday night. So you got up late,  sort of brushed your hair, read a book, watched some tv and generally lazed around.  Then […]
