I’ve been MIA for quite some time. I’ve been pretty busy and travelling and just haven’t had a lot of time to post but as I sit here working on this post I remember how much I like doing this. I really hope that I don’t disappear for so long again cause I need this creative outlet and I totally enjoy the blogging process. I was in Ottawa for a couple of weeks and had a FABULOUS time at home just hanging with family and friends. It had been way too long and that won’t be happening again any time soon either.

beauty bliss faves

I think it’s time for a few beauty recommendations that I’ve been loving over the last few months.  I’m hoping to make this beauty bliss faves a regular occurrence here on the blog and I’d love to hear your input as well. The stuff I’ve listed here are things that I actually use and swear by. I’m a bit of a beauty junkie and I love buying makeup, creams, potions, and anything that claims it’s miraculous and will help me look more like Gisele Bündchen!  Continue reading

fall style inspiration

I’ve been scouring tons of magazines and taking in all the fall/winter trends.  I love doing this because I enjoy knowing what’s coming up for the new season however it can be very dangerous cause it makes me want to go to the stores and shop, shop, shop which translates to spend, spend, spend!  I LOVE what I’m seeing for fall and winter!  The trends are quite wearable and easy to turn into real people clothes, plus we won’t be freezing and comfort reigns thanks to the chunky knits, sporty touches, a little tartan, and the menswear inspired looks.  There are obviously way more trends but these are my favourites.  Here are a few looks that have my particular spin on them.  P.S. I need these in my closet ASAP! (M I hope you’re reading this 😉 ) Continue reading

diy: blue LOVE clutch

This  DIY blue LOVE clutch was inspired by a We Are Knitters (WAK) pattern they were handing out at the Beefeater London Market in Madrid this spring. The pattern was for a mega clutch in WAK’s fabric yarn. The pattern was cool but it wasn’t exactly what I wanted however it did inspire me to make my own clutch. This is my first DIY project on LLK and what started out as just a quick knit turned into something more elaborate but the end result was totally worth it.   I don’t know why I have a tendency to overdo it, well actually I do, it’s called perfectionism (my number one frenemy).

summer Buys

I love to shop however I don’t do it very often because it could be very dangerous to my wallet!  I’m actually pretty restrained; I’ve figured out that if I don’t go into a store then I’m safe.  I just can’t go into a store because then I’ll definitely buy something.  I’m also not someone who likes to just look for the sake of looking.  I like to shop which means I like to buy and spend my money so it’s easier for me not to go into stores because unless something’s caught my eye, I’ll just keep on walking.

I don’t do a lot of online shopping because I don’t know how I could buy clothes without trying them on first however I do buy things for the house, kitchen, and shoes, oh so many shoes online.   Online shopping is dangerous, very dangerous, because it’s just so easy to click and it’s done!!!  Here are few things I’ve picked up for the summer that I thought I’d share with you.  Continue reading

welcome and i how i found out that it’s only hair!!!

Where do I begin?  In reality this all started with a haircut or should I say a hair chop!!!  It took a simple haircut to get my butt in gear and start this whole blog thing.  I’ve been pondering the idea of a blog for years but I really didn’t know what I’d talk about and then finally I decided to just talk!

Of course I have interests and hobbies but I don’t dedicate enough of my time to be able to post something about these things daily.  Then I thought why do I have to talk about just one thing!? My life isn’t that one sided and I’m hoping I have a lot more to talk about then knitting and baking.

Yup, I’m a grandma in a 35 year old’s body!  I LOVE to knit and bake.  I’m also a pretty good cook but in all honesty I don’t cook every day.  If I cooked everyday my husband would think it’s normal and expected, this way he appreciates the times I do cook and who am I kidding, I just don’t have the energy to put together a kick ass meal every night!   We usually throw something on the grill and we’re good to go.
