The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall on Blu-ray, in Celebration of its 25th Anniversary Review and Giveaway 25 years ago in the fall of 1986 I entered my last year of high school, being from Ontario that was the now defunct Grade 13. That same fall Rick Hansen traveled through Ontario […]

The 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards were all about colour.  Of course there were a few in classic black, and a few pale dresses. But the trend of the night was colour!    Check the slide show for my favourites, the not so fabulous dresses, so gratuitous eye candy and of course the beautiful couples.  When you […]

I spent last night scouring old 1990s photos looking for shots of me wearing my dark green Dr Martens.  I didn't find any good photos, but I had a great trip down memory lane.  Note, I said no good photos.  I found a few shots from a vacation I took with a friend down to […]

I LOVE how many great ladies aged 40 and over there were that graced the red carpet tonight at the Golden Globe awards.  There seemed to be lots of black tonight, especially with a single shoulder or unique cut outs.  There was also a continuation of trends from last year with lots of jewel colours […]

There was a large number of great looking ladies over 40 walking the red carpet at the Golden Globes this year.  I wish they could all have made my Top 10, but since I do not have the IQ required to re-invent math, some had to move into the Looking Good category.   And with all the […]

My friend Alexis has a great phrase that she uses when she shops "that dress does not make you fabulous".  It is never about how fabulous the woman may or may not be. But whether the dress is as fabulous as the woman.   And we can all make mistakes and be mislead by the dress […]

There were some great couples, aged 40 and over, walking the red carpet together.   It seemed that a lot of spouses opted for black, but I guess when your spouse is nominated/honoured/presenting at the Golden Globes a black dress allows you to look great, but leave the limelight for your other half. Check for my other Golden Globe coverage of My […]

It is January.  It is cold. It is rainy (for those of us in Vancouver). And we are expecting our first snow of the year this weekend.  Spring seems very far away right now.    And I am dreaming of warm, sunny beaches.   What to wear on that imaginary beach?  Why a cute and colourful dress, of course.   […]

So far January has been a sick-fest in our house.  Hubbie had it last week, I'm working my way through it and now the little guy seems to be getting sick.  Not complaining, lots of friends have had it worse than us this year.  But just wanted to explain why tonight's celebrity over 40 post is […]

I spent some time playing with Polyvore today.  Thinking about the different ways to wear some basic pieces and jazz it up with some fun accessories.  Keeping with my rule of 3 theme  I created an errand day, casual friday and work day outfit all centred around a grey shawl cardigan and white t-shirt. I […]
