I love plaid. Last fall I picked up a this awesome plaid shirt. I had been looking for a plaid shirt for a LONG time, but I wasn't interested in a tiny shrunken style shirt - they didn't fit usually fit, were too short, and gaped. In the end I found this awesome orange and […]

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.

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 […]

Long time readers will know that I make no secret of my love for polka dots. I also have a love of pencil skirts. So how could I pass up on this super fantastic black and white polka dot pencil skirt?  You are correct. I could not pass it up. I picked up this new […]
