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 […]

Last week I was asked to speak at the Vancouver Mom Top 30 Mom Blogger Gala.  It was the perfect night to debut my new Kiyonna dress.  I was recently asked to be part of the Kiyonna Blogger Brigade and picked this Harlow Faux Wrap Dress in red.  I have wanted a great red dress for […]

A very long, long, long March ended with a much needed night out with the girls - a little something Alexis Hinde and I like to call Vancouver Mum's Night Out.  A casual together, hosted at Lunapads, with a little wine and some nibbles.  It was an opportunity to dress up a bit and see the […]

The last thing I remember it was early December and I was prepping for Holiday parties and finishing my Christmas shopping. Now I look at the calendar and it is February.  Between the busy holidays, January family flu season, work deadlines and award season... time has flown right by!   So I find myself on February 6, 2012, posting […]

Dear Santa, I know it has been a long long time since you've heard from me (about 33 years).  But over the past year I've blogged about all sorts of stylish items.   And I thought you might find it confusing to know what items I really really really wanted in my closet this Christmas.   I have […]

While I was sick a few weeks ago I had a set up a seminar for some clients on a Friday.  I dressed to go to the event with the clients.  Because I felt like crap I added some cheery colour.  I made me feel like maybe it might be spring, even though I had to wear tights […]

I was only able to attend one night of the Vancouver Eco Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011 shows.  But I was excited that the evening included one of my favourite local designers Margarita Angelatos.  Margarita designs two lines Red Jade and Peridot Kiss.   And once again she didn't disappoint.   The Red Jade's Fall Winter 2011 line was […]

For the past few weeks I've been shopping for a new pair of black shoes.  I need them first for the Women in Leadership Gala on the 6th, and then for both work and fun occasions.  My goal was platform peep toe shoes with a stacked (not stiletto heel).  I wanted good quality shoes that will last me […]
