Everybody feels self-conscious about their appearance from time to time. Of course, many of us also experience moments of great confidence. Perhaps you look in the mirror from time to time and appreciate your outfit and how you are looking. Or perhaps you have the occasional “great hair day”. Still, it can be hard to feel confident about your appearance on a regular basis. It’s far too easy to be self-critical and pick out numerous flaws when you look in the mirror.
Happy A Labour of Fashion Day. I love the Thursday Linkup, a time to share all the latest and greatest. Seeing all your great looks is a fun way to enter the weekend. For me a stellar little white sundress that I wore to a Saturday BBQ. Ironically I found this cute little number in Target, I mean who ever would have guessed that right?
Is Fashion Ageless
So here is my question do you worry about age when you get ready?
Nothing like a day at the spa to help a gal feel pretty. Invited to partake in a little Linda pampering at Carte Blanche Spa I said of course. Honestly who wouldn’t love a day getting hair, make up and nails done? I selected the day we were heading to the VIP Event at the Ottawa Jazzfest. I mean let’s go really snazzy for a night out on the town.
Spa Carte Blanche
Inspired by the fashion abundance of European living, Spa Carte Blanche Haute Coiffure is an upscale destination salon and spa offering the finest quality service.
Summer season or the season of BBQ gatherings, I love this time of year. Poolside dinners, BBQ lunches, Brunch on the deck, and lord it all centers around food. Often it seems I am discussing food, drink and get-togethers lately, but hey all those make me happy. Summertime get-togethers are the best, it’s Nacho normal party. OK sorry I could not resist the little pun to celebrate the best Taco Dip.
Taco Dip for Summer Gatherings
This scrumptious Taco Dip can be thrown together in the time it takes to cook some burger.
Happy slow start to a Monday and a new work week. Well truth be told not a slow start except for on the blog front. Slowly getting back into work mode after a great weekend break and I thought I would share some real life frustrations (blog). OK not a real fun topic to start the week but is there vere a good time? For anyone not caring about the four letter word ” B.L.O.G” the cute dress is my H&M Floral Sundress I adore.
Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #279! I hope you enjoyed last week’s party and my features – I really enjoyed Pinning so many of the awesome posts our bloggers had to share!
Now that my kids have been out of school for a solid two weeks, I’m trying to come up with ideas and projects to keep them occupied. We’re also doing quite a bit of traveling to visit family out of town.
Summer time is Pool time and that also means poolside cocktails. WE spend our summers in our backyard enjoying the pool. That also means we spend it by our pool bar enjoying a few cocktails. Margarita’s, Pina Coloda’s, and any concoction we can think of. Last weekend I opted to modify and test out a Blue Hawaiian. Ever try the Blue Hawaiian Cocktail?
Pretty Blue Poolside Cocktails
First of all true confession I am fascinated with pretty, colourful drinks. If you ever check my Instagram while I am on vacation, it is filled with pretty drink pictures.
Shopping, y’all know how much I love shopping and of course Amazon. Funny thing though I had never purchased clothes on Amazon, until last week. Can you believe it, this gal had never purchased clothes through Amazon. Well now I am hooked, I mean I had found shoes and slips but not a dress. Blooming heck, that Blooming Jelly was a fun discovery. Now I am hooked on Amazon Dress Shopping.
Many of the greatest adventures are right in Canada’s backyard New York State, making it a great road trip destination. Next time you are feeling restless, want to immerse yourself in greenery, or get your sip on at world-class wineries, hop in the car. Looking to uncover delightful small towns with charming restaurants, groovy art galleries and unique museums, this is your state. I know that is exactly what Kent and I do. Day tripping or weekend tripping it is all a short drive away.
It is Summer and that means swimsuit season. Argggg I love it and hate it all at the same time. If you are like me then you have been trying to get swimsuit ready and maybe feeling deprived. If you’ve been dieting like crazy for the last few weeks to get that ultimate summer body, it is time for you to treat yourself and remind yourself what moderation really is. A few fun Cheat Meals to get you started.
