Lumberjack Plaid

Lumberjack plaid. Everyone and their dog (literally) seems to have this staple pattern in their closet. Except me (and my dog). Well, I’ve subsequently fixed that – thanks to Old Navy! Not only is this a perfect “Christmas red” … I added an extra nod to an Xmas-y vibe to this outfit by adding my…

Winter Outerwear: Faux Fur Poncho

Isn’t this a fantastic photo?! ❤ That bright blue painted wall as a backdrop to me and my pup (Max) really came out great! Good eye –  Thanks Joel! ❤ You know what the worst part of winter is?  Seeing all the black parkas. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve got a black parka too…

Product Review: LipSense

I’m always down to try out new make up products if it means making my 5-min face look even more fabulous! 😉 Earlier this summer I tried a product called LipSense – a long-lasting liquid lip colour. This product boasts claims that are pretty tough to ignore: its waterproof, does not kiss-off, smear-off, or rub-off.  Each lip colour…
