Style || An easy spring look || The New Mommy Uniform

With the weather finally showing signs of spring, I’m so excited to share this easy

daytime look. I’ve partnered with Blu’s to showcase some of the new items they’ve

brought in this season. If you haven’t popped into a Blu’s location recently, the one thing

I absolutely love is the customer experience.

They have personal stylists right in store to

help you find a full look or just the right piece you’ve been missing in your wardrobe. I

told my stylist, Emily, at the Southgate location, that I really wanted to find an easy day

time look that I could wear from meetings to the playground in a nautical color palette.

She helped me put together this look that I absolutely love!A76D4990-7832-4F9B-AC35-6C0EA5F694EA

The red MaxMara sweater is really comfortable and is just the right layering

piece for spring in Edmonton, which can be a bit unpredictable and still a bit

chilly. This navy blue cardigan jacket by Moncler is something I’ve actually

had my eye on for a while. As you all know, I love outerwear and I’ll get

tons of wear out of this piece, whether I’m running errands, taking the kids

to the park or lunch out with the girls or my hubby.

And, what can I say about this navy bag from Longchamp? These classic

French­designed bags are so durable and I loved the fun pattern on this

one. It will easily transition into the summer season and I’ll be taking this

one on many of our summer adventures!

interest­free payments made monthly throughout the year. You can inquire

including:

Manulife Place and Southgate in Edmonton

 or

New Age Road Trips || How times have changed…

Lincoln continental 2018 review banff canmore lifestyle blogger family road trip tips tricks ideas I love a good old fashioned family road trip. Snacks, great music and incredible scenery. Growing up the majority of our vacations were on the road as opposed to in the air. Let’s face it, it’s a far more affordable option for tons of families. The one thing that isn’t the same from my childhood mini vacations are the luxury features available in some motor vehicles nowadays. We had the pleasure of partnering with Lincoln on a weekend trip to the mountains. Here are some of my favourite aspects of The 2018 Lincoln Continental that make long road trips as a family that much easier:

Sync 3 is a voice activated feature that can easily control your phone. For us, we loved pressing a button, asking for great restaurants in the area and getting a response in seconds. It was like having a little tour guide in the car with us, perfect for a road trip when you’re not familiar with the town or city you are taking a pitstop in.

Home Decor || My love for round mirrors continues…

2B118BDD-7C41-4901-8A59-435C88231F2AWe all know I’m always on the hunt for a great mirror. Easily my favorite decorating trick to open up a room and make it appear even bigger. For the living room I’ve been looking for a large round mirror for quite some time. We found this gorgeous Oryx mirror from The Brick just in time for our Spring refresh of our home. I love the gold detail,  modern feel and minimal profile. The size was also a big selling point for me, I struggled to find large round mirrors with a minimalist frame. The majority were half the size or had too decorarive a border for my design needs. With Spring in the air we find ourselves adding a few more accents to each room as we tidy and move the winter items to storage. Continue reading

Style || Last Days of Winter || How you can score my fav boots and coat at a discount…

Here’s to hoping this is the last winter style post you have to see until late November but I’m probably dreaming! In any case, this time of year is the best time to score some major deals on outerwear and boots. I love coats, boots and bags! And of which are normally a pretty penny, so it feels good to snag some good end of season sales.
