I’ve been listening to Florence + The Machine a lot lately and this morning saw the announcement that she was headlining the very first “Bestival Toronto” on Toronto Island June 12-13. That should be a great show and I hope we get to go.
This weekend was a pretty great one. Jason and I had a quiet but fun Friday night at home and then Saturday I had a baby shower for my cousin and then ended up at the Ceili Cottage for Steph’s birthday. It was a really fun time, I saw a bunch of girls that I hadn’t seen in years. We were in the Yurt, which was a pretty interesting and funny party room.
I am so ready for Spring to get here and hopefully this month starts to ease on the deep freeze we’ve been experiencing. It’s hard to get motivated to do anything in the cold. I have completely abandoned my Yoga practice and any thoughts of going outside if I don’t absolutely have to. It’s going to be a pretty exciting month I think. There is something brewing in the air and I feel a big change coming on.
In other Toronto news, the police found the people who dug the “Mystery Tunnel” and determined that they just wanted to dig a tunnel and had no ill intent, so case is closed. Glad the hysteria level didn’t increase to Fox News proportions.
Tonight I’m going to an event at the Ripley’s Aquarium with some girls from work and I’m pretty excited about it. I hope we get to wander around a bit and see all the marine life!
Happy Friday Lovelies! Today has started off pretty great. Woke up before my alarm feeling like I had a great sleep, got a ride in to work from a super hot man (Pony) and made a lunch date for next Friday to see one of my favourite girls.
It’s been another whirlwind of a week and there are no signs of slowing down. I’ve been laying low in the evenings and we’ve almost watched all of Season 5 of Sons of Anarchy this week. Yes I’m late to the party, but man it’s such a great show. I am literally on the edge of my seat and having anxiety for most of every episode and I’m going to be sad when it’s all said and done.
This weekend will be a busy one as well. I’ve got a baby shower, maybe a wedding dress fitting with one of my ladies, fixing the stairs in our new place and maybe even getting carpet! So grown up, I know. haha
We Won The Internets! For real! Yesterday, the FCC voted on a monumental decision to approve strong net neutrality rules. Net Neutrality is “the principle that Internet service providers and governments should treat all data on the Internet equally, not discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication.” – Wikipedia
A Mermaid School is coming to Toronto. AquaSirene opened in Montreal and due to the fast growth they will be in Toronto by the end of the sumer! Seriously, you can learn to swim like Ariel and wear a beautiful sparkly fin. We used to pretend to be mermaids all the time when we were swimming and I am absolutely going to sign up. I wonder if it’s hard?
If you have $4000 you can have a brand new pair of underwear every day for a year. Yes, that’s right, for only 4K you can get 365 pairs of underwear from MeUndies. They will customize this pack so you can get mens or womens styles. But seriously, where the heck would you keep this many pairs of underwear?
Daniel at my office made me feel old because he didn’t know who Warren G was. If you don’t know who he is, then please Google him. Warren G & Kenny G performing “Regulate” is what brought this conversation on.
Last night we had a Trivia Night party at work. It was super fun and I was on the winning team!
It’s been a pretty fun and busy week. Finn has had a couple of playdates with Jilly the Puppy and Atlas the Golden Retriever. I got my hair done by Matthew (it’s Birthday Blonde, my favourite colour) and tonight we’ve got a dinner date.

That’s all I’ve got. Here’s a Show & Tell!
There is a company called Cuddle Clones that makes a plush toy of your pet. I lost my Harley at the end of the year and I think I’d like one of him. Is it creepy or nice?
Oooohhhh…. Friday the 13th! Right before Valentines Day!
Are you doing anything super special for tomorrow? Honestly, I’ve never been a big fan of Valentines Day. I love my man and we celebrate our love every day (ok, too cheesy). But for real, I prefer to stay home, order takeout and have a pajama party with tons of junk food and maybe a bottle of champagne. I don’t know if Jason has any ideas for something fun to do, but I’m good with a relaxing evening of drinking at home
This week has been a challenge. I fell down the stairs of my new place last week, bruised my ribs, butt & arm. It’s affected an old injury from a car accident, so I got some muscle relaxers last night and am a little lucid today.
It’s been hard to keep up my blogging with so much going on. Work has been super busy, moving and unpacking is crazy and I can’t wait til everything is put away.
So friends, here is a Show & Tell to help you through the day.
Princess Awesome is a line of girls clothing that move away from “traditional girl prints”. Like a dress with trucks on it or a skirt with dinosaur print. I would have loved these cool designs as a kid (and kind of want a few of them now!). Their Kickstarter campaign has surpassed it’s goal and I can’t wait to see these in stores. Here is the article from HuffPo.
Sequin is a NYC-based design studio founded in 2000 by sisters Kim and Linda Renk. Contemporary chic with a romantic edge, we are known for distinctive, directional jewelry that transcends fast fashion. Our line especially resonates with those who understand how to accessorize for the ultimate individual style statement.
The Star Maps Stellina necklace is what first caught my attention. I love Capricorn symbols and the delicate chain and stellina design is dainty and feminine and just my style!
The Star Maps Capricorn Stellina Necklace is my favourite
The Star Maps Collection illustrates the twelve astrological signs with beautifully detailed interpretations of constellations and zodiac symbols. Each medallion has been cast from an original Sequin illustration, and comes with an adjustable chain so that it can be worn in a variety of ways. Whether you’re devoted to your horoscope or just love what these celestial pieces represent, they’ll integrate perfectly with your own unique style.
These would make a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for any astrology lover and I am seriously coveting these necklaces.
The Star Maps Capricorn 3-Charm necklace is gorgeous as well.
