You'll have to forgive me for not coming to visit and post comments on any blogs. I'm in sunny and warm Mexico at the moment trying to hold on to the last shards of summer....for a week anyways and I will be unplugged from any sort of media. I'll be back to regular programming next Thursday.

What I am Wearing:
Dress: Kensie
Tweed Jacket: Dynamite (Old)
Boots: Town Shoes
Watch: Boyfriend Bracelet COACH
Necklace: Aldo

Red Velvet

The next few posts are scheduled posts – I am away catching some sun in Mexico

Given that my parents grew up in a British colonized part of East Africa, I learned a different set of words that are not normally used within Canadian Vernacular. For example: the trunk of a car was often called the boot, Jumper instead of a sweater, a pinafore instead of a sleeveless dress. I’ve always loved that word. Pinafore. It sounds almost as delicious as Red Velvet. Put those three words together and I am in heaven…And I get to say it as I am wearing a hand-me-down red velvet pinafore for this outfit.

Holiday Holodiam by Makeup Forever

Tis the season for holiday parties, festive get-togethers, office shindigs and of course glamorous (maybe over-rated) New Year’s Eve celebrations. While I love the holiday season, and the good cheer it brings, there are a few things that are making my list this year for holiday cheer.
  1. Holiday Cookies. One can never say no to my Toblerone Shortbread.
  2. Lights Lights & more Lights – though sometimes eerie (especially on bare trees) I love how beautiful the city looks as they twinkle! 
  3. Christmas Displays - Need I say more? 
  4. Make Up For Ever’s Limited Edition Eye Shadow from the Holodiam Collection #302. Ever since I saw this, I knew it had to be mine. I mean an eye shadow that has a unique finish of 3 colors in one? Sign me up! 
Available at Sephora for $28
Ok in all seriousness though, I am in love with it! Make Up For Ever has just been stepping up to the plate recently with things that I must have. Especially for my skin tone, the multiple highlights and color reflection from one shadow makes this a perfect showstopper.
Beware: This small package contains lots sparkle to tickle your toes and perfect for that stocking stuffer.
I’ve worn it to work (a light finish and it did not illicit crazy stares from co-workers) just brush it on (make sure to put a Kleenex under your eyes to catch any of the extra that falls from the brush). And I’ve worn it wet for a dramatic nighttime look.
Love the way this goes on! gives so many hues without having to mix with anything else!

I’d have to say, this holiday season is shaping up mighty fine: I’ve already seen some lights, holiday displays and put my sparkle on. Guess the only thing left to do is actually bake those cookies! 

What do you think? do you like the new Holiday Holodiam Collection by Make Up For Ever?

Leather Love

I have a serious love affair with leather. There I said it. Im so sorry to all my friends who are vegan, and to all who love animals….I do too! But I love leather. I just cant help it :(
Jacket:Mackage  Boots: Rudsak  Gloves: Banana Republic  Scarf: Gifted  Purse: COACH (gathered Leather Lindsey) Jacket: Urban Outfitters Pants: H&M

There’s nothing like wearing a fitted pair of leather gloves, or a great leather boot to make my heart swoon. What’s even better is the mixing and matching of different leather textures and colours to complete an ensemble.
And unlike many other fabrics I own, leather seems to be one that I will hang on to for better or worse.

Do you love leather? Or is it another fabric you can’t part with?
