Etsy's gift guide

Guess who's in Etsy's Gift Guide this week?

Yup, it's me. One of my newest tops from my fall collection made it into Etsy's Sapphire Gift Guide. Although, now I'm wondering why I called that top "Truffle"! It doesn't even remotely look like a truffle. If someone has a better suggestion, I'm all ears.

I also want to say a big Thank You to Necole from the CreativeMixx and TipandFiFI for featuring me their blogs.

Scenes from NB -part 2

It definitely feels like the end of summer today. A good day to reminisce about hot summer days at the beach. In case you missed my part 1, here it is.

Here I am trying to capture the dunes created during low tide at Parlee beach.

More scenes from the sand dunes. It's fun just to walk from one end of the beach to the other.

In between the dunes are shallow pool of water. They were filled with hermit crabs that got stuck when the tide went down. It was fun to watch them until I realized one of them was on my foot. Eeeck!

Shopping in Syracuse

Yesterday, we drove to Syracuse, NY for a mini shopping trip. It took us about 3 hours to get to the Carousel Center Mall. We were on a tight schedule since we needed to get back that night for a bbq. Once we got to the mall, I headed to Lord and Taylor. I wandered aimlessly for a while until I found the BCBG sales rack. I picked up the dress (below) and a linen skirt on clearance for like $30.

My next stop was at Ann Taylor Loft. I picked up the sweater dress below and a few summer dresses on sale. My last stop was DSW where I got a pair of Steve Madden boots for fall and a pair of black pointy flats. Then it was already time to go. I had tons of fun visiting these stores that we don't have in Canada. My bf didn't share my sentiment, he was very happy to leave.

Since I had exceeded my daily limit of $50, I would need to pay duty once we crossed back into Canada. I kept worrying that I was going to be charge an outrageous amount that would end my trip on a sour note. Once the agent processed my receipts, I only owed $44. Phew!

Scenes from NB - part 1

Back in July, we made our way to New Brunswick. We got a chance to visit Fundy National Park. Here are a few scenes from Dickson Falls.

Before going on a second hike, we had a little picnic overlooking the Bay of Fundy. The second hike was the Coppermine trail which was a bit of a let down. It was a long hike and there wasn't much to see.
