A little Throwback Thursday (tbt) to brighten up a stormy Thursday in Vancouver. This Toni Basil video takes me back to Grade 9 and my first high school dance. It still makes me want to dance. Every.

When I started this blog in 2010 I thought I could always find inspiration to write about style and fashion. Well the dearth of posts over the past year has shown I was clearly wrong. I started to find sitting down to write about what I wore, my favourite shoes, or a new piece of clothing […]

I hope everyone enjoyed a fabulous holiday. I am enjoying some well deserved downtime with my family. What I love most about a holiday is the chance to do some reading. I finally downloaded the library reading app onto my phone this year. I have what a large phone (Samsung Note) which is a decent size […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
