Fall is coming!

I know this SHOULD be a Fashion Friday post… But I thought it could be a Fall Friday instead!

I don’t know about any of you… BUT I am super excited to have some cooler days!! It even rained a bit yesterday! WOOHOO! Who would have thought that would be exciting? But after a whole summer with about 2 rainy days – I was glad to see those few precious drops!

I have been really getting into my wool and have been scouring the net looking for great patterns to try. I found the GREATEST pattern and cannot wait to try it…. are you ready – it is for PERRY THE PLATYPUS! I couldn’t believe my luck!! For anyone who has no clue who I am talking about, you are missing out! Here is a pic from one of my FAV cartoons Phineas and Ferb!

That is Perry on the front of the surfboard. The pattern looks kinda difficult but I am going to try my best and hopefully give it to my little guy for Christmas. 

Are you exciting for Fall? What are you doing to get ready?

Fashion Friday (on a Saturday) – Audrey Hepburn

Well… it is a Fashion Friday SATURDAY!  Because I was at camp I had no time to blog – so now that I am home I wanted to blog about Audrey Hepburn and how wonderful she looked in her movie Roman Holiday with Gregory Peck. And since a picture says a thousand words – here she is!

It is no wonder why she is a fashion icon.

Fashion Friday ~ Happy Canada Day!

O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.


Since it is Canada Say I thought that it would be fitting to blog about a Canadian Designer!! Makes sense right?? So I googled “Canadian Designers” and the same name kept popping up! Allison Wonderland!

“Allison Smith’s design inspiration can be summed up simply by “how much food and drink you can consume without having your belly pop out.” This may or may not be the result of her being born and raised in BC and her love of fine food and wine. But a girl has to live.
And a girl wants to look good”

I like the way she thinks! And LOVE that she is a BC girl!

Here are some pics from her line:


Pretty Cute “EH”!!

Loving the dress….. I think I need to go dress shopping! Comment and let me know what you think!


Fashion Friday ~ Shabby Apple

Welcome to my first Fashion Friday post! YAY! Every Friday I will try to post about favourite shops, lines, products, blogs, tips or anything else to do with fashion. This in all in hopes of jump starting my fashion sense a bit! As a WAHM it can be hard sometimes to focus on yourself and what makes you happy! And I really like clothes, jewelery and makeup!!! I can’t tell you how good I feel when I am wearing a new lip gloss!


“A return to what dresses were always meant to be — a one-piece outfit. No need to add anything…no tank tops, no cardigans, nothing (except accessories, of course!).”

This is my FAVOURITE DRESS! It is from their vintage inspired “Set Sail” line


Does this make you want to go sailing?? I sure do! This is on my wish list!

They have so many AMAZING lines within this company! I honestly think it is one of the best I have seen in a long time.

And check out this bathing suit!

“Every woman deserves to feel beautiful in a dress, but not all of us look like runway models. Shabby Apple celebrates the short legs, curvy hips, straight waists, and flat chests in all of us”

They have an amazing section that helps you to shop for your body type, and then gives you examples from their site of what would look great on you. I know I will be making some purchases VERY soon!

Thank you for reading my first Fashion Friday post! I hope you enjoy their site as much as I do!
