OOTD – Sunday Sundresses

I love when Birthdays brings family together! My Grandfathers 80th Birthday was today, a great time to dress up a little and take some pictures with my sister Meghan, who lives most of the year in Ireland.

I wore a brand new hot pink sundress from J.Crew matched with my ever trusty American Eagle jean jacket, a true wardrobe essential. Finished off with my black burlap Toms, I felt pretty in pink for a lovely garden party with the family. Too bad we don’t get together more often. My lovely sister wore a really pretty white eyelet lace dress from Banana Republic. And check out those fab Michael Kors wedges. A lovely pair I think.

I finally have some time for shopping this weekend and can’t wait to get some more summer sundresses and more bright cloths for my upcoming Boston trip!! I love summer!

What colours do you think are in this summer?

OOTD #3 and LUSH

When you work on the road it’s quite hard to have a social life. You come and go so often that you lose touch, and when you are finally home you have a completely different schedule than friends. But with my recent schedule change allowing me to be home for 3 months straight, I’ve been able to catch up with some friends and have a social life (something I thought I didn’t have anymore). This past weekend Sandra and I took a road trip to visit Megan – a weekend full of sushi, shopping, wine, fresh lush face masks, and meeting up with our really good friend John that we haven’t seen for at least a year. It’s because of weekend’s like this that I truly love my friends.

My outfit for the day was pretty casual:

JCrew Black Ruffled Pea Coat

American Eagle Dark Skinny Jeans

Grey Woollen Socks

Black Bass Leather Boots

Ray Ban Tortoise-Shell Clubmasters

After some exhausting shopping and stop at Menchie’s for some overpriced frozen yogurt, we return to Megan’s for copious amounts of wine and Lush Face Masks!!!! Truthfully this is the first time that I have ever tried a face mask from Lush and I’m kicking myself for not trying one sooner. I’ve used other Lush products, some of which I love and some of which I hate. But I LOVED this face mask!! I tried The Sacred Truth – a skin conditioning formula of anti-oxidant wheatgrass, green tea and papaya. It smelt amazing, and my skin felt as soft as butter when I washed it off after about 15 minutes. I’m really into the freshness of Lush products, as well as the fact that they are homemade. And the company has such strong beliefs against animal testing and recycling. Both Megan and Sandra tried different masks – Cosmetic Warrior and Catastrophe Cosmetic and they both really loved theirs as well (we even managed to get John to try one out!) After such a good experience I know that I will be purchasing another Lush face mask in the future. You have to use them quick though. They have a very short shelf life!

OOTD #2 and WOMF – Christmas in January

As I’ve mentioned before I work for a large Canadian food service company. Seeing as December is the busiest time of year for us, we celebrate Christmas and the New Year in January. This past Saturday was our ‘Far East’ themed staff celebration at a large convention centre in Hamilton. It was one of the most extravagant events that I’ve ever been to. It was amazing!!! The decorations, the food, the drinks, the outfits, etc. I had so much fun!! But of course the best part of a night like this is getting ready!! I haven’t had the chance to dress up in such a long time! It was wonderful!!!
