Gatineau Park

Today we went for a hike in Gatineau Park. As you can see, it was a gorgeous day so park was packed with hikers, mountain bikers, kids and dogs.

We decided to take a break at a dam on Meech Lake. There was a few guys playing latin music on one of the huge rocks. It was actually a lot of fun and I'm not usually an outdoorsy person. We decided to turn back at this point since I realised I had forgotten my Kleenex in the car. My boyfriend kept insisting that I could blow my nose with am Oak leaf but I wasn't buying it!

(Yikes! I think I'll have some sore legs tomorrow)

A banana what..?

My boyfriend got himself a banana guard at the Glebe Emporium last week. No, it's not what you're thinking. It's actually a plastic case so your banana doesn't get bruised on your way to work or school. Although he has gotten a few weird looks from his fellow co-workers, I think it's a clever idea.

They come in a variety of colors. I think I'll get the pink one for myself. Available for 6.99 on their website.

New reversible scarf tops

Here's a sneak peek at my new reversible scarf tops. I was a bit hesitant listing these in the fall but I think they're pretty cute with a long sleeve top (or even a turtleneck) underneath. You can click on the pictures to see the back. Sorry, only 1 is still available.



Size S/M - still availble for $35 here

A post about my mom

Since moving away to college 10 years ago, I've been receiving care packages from my mom. In the early years, it was filled with essential student items like boxes of Kraft dinner, Q-tips and dryer sheets. The college days are over but the boxes keep comin'. However, they've evolved into a more sophisticated care package filled with either craft supplies or thrift store finds. Sometimes, there's even a combination of both. Yay! Even though, I can afford all of these items - it's still a treat receiving a package in the mail.

A few months ago, I mentioned that I would be making capes and pendants with x-large buttons. Guess what I got in my last box...

I should also mention that my mom has a knack for finding designers labels within the thrift store "junk". This has inspired me to start a weekly post featuring my mom's thrift store finds. It will consist of clothing, kitchen and decorating items. I'm sure a few post will have you saying AS IF !!
Stay tuned...
