Events

Way back in July I attended the 40+ Blogger Meet-up in Vancouver. Then there was camping vacation, work deadlines, storms, power outages (32 hours), family funerals, school starting, sick husband, sick kid, sick me, and then sick me again with pneumonia... and all of a sudden it is Halloween. Seems odd to be posting pictures […]

Love it when my footwear selection happens to fit right in with the Italian floor tiles. Fluevog booties seen here at the European influenced new Corbeaux Bakehouse in Calgary. The booties were a fun addition to my tunic and polka dot blouse. The tunic was a great choice as it left lots of room for […]

This is what I heard my girlfriend say when she invited me to a charity event..."blah, blah, blah, Fluevog, blah, blah...". My answer: "Yes". Who says NO to a fundraiser held at a Fluevog store. For the record the very smart organization that partnered with Fluevog for their fundraiser was Carousel Theatre for Young People. […]

Last month I attended the awesome and inspiring G is for Goddess event hosted by the lovely Suzanne Siemens and Madeleine Shaw of LunaPads. The event was also a far too rare night out with a girlfriend. I will have more to say about the thoughts inspired by the fantastically funny and honest speaker Taryn […]

I pulled out a long time owned, […]

It had some great speakers, experiential groups, and artists all geared at helping girls ages 10-12 as they transition into adolescence. Looking at the agenda for the day, I was jealous that there wasn't something like that for me and other adult […]

I don't know about you, but by this time in the winter I am getting tired of staring at the 4 walls in my house. I am starting to dream about a cleaner house, a redecorated house, fabulous and miraculous new cooking skills, OR just a few hours out of my house. The BC Home […]

I guess it isn't too hard to figure out that I recently on vacation. I had not intended to go on vacation from the blog, I even started some draft posts that I could figure on the go (literally as we went on an epic road trip to Colorado, Vegas and Disneyland). And well... I went […]

Every year it becomes apparent it is spring when my jean jacket makes its way into regular rotation.  But bright bold colours are on trend for spring and my current blazers and jean jacket are just a bit neutral. So I was hoping to find a piece that I could mix and match as easily […]

Do you do a regular closet clear out each spring? Do you send a big bag of once loved goodies to the thrift and/or consignment stores? But you keep a number of nearly new items because, well they are nearly new. You might have bought these awesome items online and then the size or style […]
