Archive for September, 2011

Today felt like school picture day, and none of the pictures we took worked.  And then my husband had to run back into the yard to stop our dinner on bbq from burning. So I set up the tripod and still nothing seemed to work, partly because I had a 4 year running around my […]

My daycare provider asked me today how I had so many nice jewelry pieces.  I told her "visit good quality stores and head straight to the sale section".  Today's necklace was a great little steal from Fine Finds in Yaletown.   Although I'm not supposed to be shopping, I couldn't turn down this $8 necklace.  Plus […]


Over the summer most of the networking events take a break, and then come back in a flurry in the fall.  And because so many people are dealing with back-to-school, back-to-work and general back to rain in early September, everyone plans those events for late September. And the third week in September in particular. I […]

This upcoming Sunday I am going to be participating in Run for the Cure in Vancouver.  To be honest, I'll be walking 5km for the cure, because my Achilles tendonitis doesn't like running.   And I won't be alone, I'm running/walking on the Bloggers for Boobies team with 9 other awesome bloggers. Some who I know […]

I haven't done a Fashion Follow Friday in a long time. So I thought I'd make a few suggestions based on designs I saw at Spend on Trend last weekend. I love Spend on Trend as it brings such a unique mix of  local designers and artisans in one place. There were some old favourites […]


Earlier this month I picked up a new "to me" scarf at Value Village. I posted a pic of the frugal $2.99 find. And I tied it on my denim bag.  But I had not yet worn it.  So here is the picture of me finally wearing said scarf. It was one of the last […]


It was the Emmy awards so there were sparkles, spanx, emmy tones, fights, flat jokes and musical numbers. All in the first 5 minutes.  There were also some lovely frocks.  The themes for the night seemed to be either a bright colour, a pale pale colour or black.   Love My favourite dressed really shouldn't count as she […]

What do you wear when you are running errands, on a hot September day, with a pre-schooler in tow?  Somehow I suspect the answer includes the word "comfortable". On this errand running day I wore my Straight Leg Levi's worn rolled up for fun (yup the ones I bought a size too large).  On top was my Nicole Bridger […]

From time to time I post interesting fashion related events on my events page.   There is usually a summary of the events listed in the sidebar.  But once in a while there is an event that I feel needs that little extra bit of attention.  Sweet Talk is one of those events. I have a […]

For my birthday last spring one of the gifts from my husband was an ethical deal from Spark Jewelry. I had seen the deal and had sent him a "hint" that it would be a good gift. I have now finally gotten around to using it. I ordered this lovely necklace called Tree of Life.  […]
