Let me introduce you to my Coach gloves:




I love these. I could get used to this. Headed out for coffee with a friend, have a great evening!

Hello all! I hope you have had a wonderful holidays so far; I know I have! These are some new items that I got for Christmas, although you have seen the shoes before. This is my first pair of regular skinny jeans. I feel that skinny jeans shouldn't be worn by anyone with curves, including me, because they emphasize the hips, but my sweater and the added heel height balances this out pretty well. I think this will be a future Friday casual outfit for work :)
I was thrilled to receive a pair of Coach leather gloves from my brother this Christmas. I will share those beauties soon.

I love Canada. Because our dollar is par with the US, our Canadian companies are hosting Black Friday/weekend sales to keep us shopping locally! I wasn't planning on going to the US this weekend for the mega deals, but I have definetely taken advantage of the deals here at home! Some friends and I visited Old Navy this evening, and I made the following purchases:


Cheers to American Thanksgiving!

How Many Sworovski's Are Too Many?

We are having a work Christmas party in December, and I am pretty excited about it! I have been looking through my closet for a dress to wear, and wondering if I need to buy a new one. I found this dress which I wore last New Year's, but no one at the company knows that :) I will add my string of Sworovski's and matching custom earrings.

Fa La La La La...La La La Laaaa

I am finally getting into the Christmas spirit. I did my first bit of Christmas shopping today and am ready to go back out tomorrow. I normally would have started earlier, but I have been drawing a blank on what to get people this year. What do you buy people that have everything? But I guess they are probably thinking the same thing about me lol.
I was downtown in the cold for a lot of today, so I'm glad to be bundled-up and ttoasty here in my room. I had a great 2 days with friends, but am looking forward to a gym date and shopping solo tomorrow. When I shop with others, I always feel pressured to move quicker. I never want to hold anyone up if I am looking at something. Here was an out-and-about outfit for the day: Cold wind makes me sleepy, so I'm off to bed. Have a great night :)

I'll Be Bullet Proof

I have survived yet another long week of work. It has been stressful, but I did get a pat on the back today from my boss for showing initiative. That was a rare and very appreciated compliment after a stress filled morning.
I am having computer problems yet again, so was only able to upload this one photo. This is my Thursday work outfit.

My Return

Hello all. Thank you for the inqueries and the kind words that you have sent me. After about a month of dealing with personal issues and keeping myself busy, it finally feels ok to smile again and to finally continue blogging. Blogging is something that I have enjoyed for the past 2 years, and am happy to start again.

Here are a couple photos taken tonight. I might wear the outfit tomorrow or Friday.

Sorry for the poor quality, my flickr wasn't working, so I had to improvise.

Happy Weekend

Hello all! Well it is the weekend yet again. This week has just flown by for me...I couldn't believe that the last time I posted was 6 days ago. My work life has kept me happily busy, and because I'm happy, I have been losing weight. I'm the type of person that eats when they are unhappy, but now I am getting back to the size I was 2 years ago. The onlydownside is that I have a whole new work wardrobe that is starting to get pretty loose. My skirts just don' nip in far enough at the waist anymore.
I love my 70's inspired ruffled blouse in these pictures. They were the only photos I could get before the batteries ran out in my camera. Will charge and do more!

Kids Who Wear the Crowns

I went shopping States side today, which I love to do. Because I was by myself, I only shopped in Watertown, at the SalmonRun mall, Kohl's and Target. I didn't find as many deals as I was expecting, however, I did enjoy the low tax rate. On my $44 dress, I paid just over $1 in taxes. I think that is awesome.
I didn't buy much, but as usually, I made sure I loved what I got. I was so close to buying a Calvin Klein dress today. but found the one below that I liked more. If I hesitate over a piece of clothing, I immediately put it back. When I go shopping, I doing buy anything I don't immediately love when I try it on. I have always found that those purchases have been a waste of money because I don't wear them.


I also bount my first pair of wearable wedges and I am sold. They are so supportive, I want more!






My original intention when shopping was mainly to get 1.5-2" high heeled shoes for work, and possibly some tops and maybe a pair of pants for fall. I ended up being draw to all sorts of skirts and dresses. I did get a pair of shoes, but also got a dress of all things. The season is changing, and I but a I am also looking for the perfect sweater dress right now.

Working Girl

I love going to work where there are lots of friendly/funny people...but then I have to come home to an empty house. Kind of depressing; however! tomorrow is my spa day, I will be relaxing with a massage after work. Saturday I will be buzzing off to the states alone because le boyf has better things to do with his day. But shopping alone is always better anyway, le bf's never give you a straight opinion!
Today I didn't want to wear a skirt, dress pants or heels.



Sweater: winners; tank: Cleo; belt:? jewelry: rings made by myself and dad

Sept 14

This is my first work clothing post. It was a random picture from this morning before work.

sept 14

I think I look kind of mean, I wasn't going for that!
I am now home alone for a week, le parents have gone to North Carolina for a week. My dad is obssessed with driving race cars around Charlotte Motor Speedway (NASCAR track)! I didn't go this year because I have gone for the last 3 years and need a break from NC.

My Wonderland

As promised, here are a couple new photos. The one flaw that I have found in many places I have lived over the past 5 years is a lack of closet space; There never seems to be enough! Luckily, since I am living at home, I get 2 whole double closets! They are pretty jam-packed, but I think they should be the limit on how much clothing I should have...I am going to have to adopt my brothers philosophy of "buy a new item, get rid of an old one."
I also plan on doing some what-I-wore-to-work posts in the near future; I am absolutely obsessed with work clothes. I always have been, and I am currently planning a trip to the States for some dad b-day present shopping and work attire. I am planning buying my dad a charcoal bbq for his b-day...would that be a good gift?



This tank is one of my all time favoutire shirts! It looks so fancy under a sweater of blazer. Tip: if you are looking for classy items or amazing classic pieces, take a look around older women's stores like Cleo or Melanie Lym. They always have great basics.


Next week when I get paid, I am splurging on a massage and pedicure! Any advice on what kind of massage I should get? I haven't had a hot rock one yet.

Who Am I?

I have really been noticing lately that I am knowing fewer and fewer people in the celebrity magazines. Where are all these random young people coming from? Oh God, I just said 'young people'...I feel so old right now....I think it all started with the Jonas Brothers for me; that is when I stopped caring about random young celeb crazes. However, it might also be because I don't watch vampire shows...Is anyone else having this problem -if you can really call that a problem - or is it just me?

What show am I on?

New Camera Fun

Happy Wednesday everyone! I spent most of this afternoon down at a new little coffee shop in Kingston called the Mug & Truffle. It has great coffee, free wifi and a bonus courtyard outback. My bestfriend and I visited it for the first time the other day, and I am smitten. I will definitely start going there over Starbucks...the only downside to it is that it is pretty far away from where I live.
Anyway, we were playing around with my new camera the other day, and I thought I would share some pictures. Have a good one!





I chose the Kodak, not the Nikon :)
