Happy (American) Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to those south of the border! 

Canadian Thanksgiving was over a month ago of course, but I still enjoy this day quite a bit - probably because some of the spirit can't help but make it's way across the border. I am also a football fan (NFL) so I am all about this full bonus day of football! Although I do wish I was having some turkey and stuffing... nachos will just have to do! :)

Another perk? That Canada has for the last couple of years also recognized Black Friday! And for those who don't want to get trampled in a mall, the more reserved Cyber Monday. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Wednesday Wisdom: 20 Things We Should Say More Often

It's a Winter Wonderland!!! We got our first real snow fall of the season last night. Everything is covered and is beautiful. We got a pretty big dumping (worthy of the title "winter storm") and we're getting more throughout the day so I don't think it's going any where. I'm not sure about you, but I'm ready for winter!

But on with today's post. I am sharing a video that my dear friend sent me yesterday. I'm a big fan positivity and kindness (in case you hadn't noticed) and that's what this video is alllll about! Too cute and too funny and a fantastic message. :)

2013 American Music Awards

Happy Monday! 

Last night was the American Music Awards. I totally missed the show due to watching football - which by the way was an AMAZING game if you happened to catch it - but as usual I was online early this morning checking out what looks walked the red carpet! It was an easy selection for me. Taylor Swift, who as I have said is not my fave person in the world, seems to be popping up on my lists lately, and last night was no exception. She looked amazing. Amazing amazing. Also, one of my absolute faves, Nicole Richie looked fab in her white dress. No matter the season whites always seem to make my list too... just something about them - classic and clean maybe?

Funny Friday: Epic Split

Launched last week and viral within minutes, Volvo Trucks put out a video starring Jean-Claude VanDamme to demonstrate their precision steering. It's one of my most fave videos and I can't stop watching it! It's a combination of funny and cool. My best guess would be that most have seen it but in the off chance someone hasn't I posted it below (and if you haven't DO watch it - it's that good), BUT that's not what today's post is about... it is about the second video I have included. That video, is 100% humor. If you're a fan of 21 Jump Street and/or Channing Tatum, I think you'll agree... enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

Looks of the Week

This week it was super easy to pick my favourite looks! Mainly because I allowed myself to pick 6 instead of the more common 2 or so. 

Starting things off are Victoria Beckham and Eva Longoria, both in classic, elegant Victoria Beckham pieces. Her designs are perfection in my eyes.

 Next up, Miranda Kerr and Niki Reed in two super fun, super cute and super stylish dresses. Love them. Please also note, white pumps with both... I have not attempted to wear mine since Labor Day but pics like these don't make it easy!

 Last but not least, Allison Williams and (surprise, surprise) Victoria Beckham again with two classic looks that I love for different reasons. That dress firstly... come on! Stunning. Christmas party inspiration perhaps? And Victoria's ensemble I like because it looks like something any one of us could and would wear on a night out.

Everything Happens for a Reason...

This is probably one of my absolute fave Marilyn Monroe quotes of all time and I think something that everyone should remember at any point in their lives (except maybe the "trust no one but yourself" part... but you get the idea!). Go with the flow and know whatever is meant to be will be. You might not know the reason when it's happening, but just trust it will make sense in the end...

Case of the Mondays...

At the start of this week, or any week, how did you feel? Did you feel like you were having surprise, having a "case of the Mondays"? Well surprise! A case of the Mondays is a real thing, especially with us ladies!

article, Marie Claire, MondayIn an article of Marie Claire magazine I learned about a U.S. study that looked into the days, times, and occasions when women feel their most and least attractive. Not a huge surprise, Monday is the day we want to look in the mirror the least. The reasoning? Firstly the obvious: it marks the start of a brand new work-week. But it is also linked to Monday showing the most "effects" of our weekend social activities! Sunday comes in second place on the "ugly day" scale. My guess is it's second and not first because we are not required to do anything such as dress up, socialize, or go out if we don't want to... Sunday Funday is ours right?!

Our best day where we feel most attractive? Well that day is today: Thursday! You are approaching the end of your work week and are mentally preparing for whatever your weekend holds. It's no wonder! How do you feel today? I feel mighty good :) 

Do you suffer from a case of the Mondays? I'm usually not too bad but I definitely do like Thursday better!

Looks of the Week

Alright Jessica Biel, enough already! Mrs. Timberlake has my two favourite looks of this week. Yes, I love the dresses she's wearing but it's more than that. Head (hair) to toe (shoes) she looks absolutely stunning and was styled to perfection!!!

Then as a bonus feature we've got a couple of LBD cutouts that caught my eye. Victoria Beckham in her own design looks absolutely stunning... just a simple yet interesting yet sexy dress. I love when her hair is long and sleek too. Then we've got Selena Gomez in admittedly a dress that probably only she can wear. Less subtle with the cutouts but I still think she looked great. Definitely more on the sexy and scandalous side, the modest hemline and shoes definitely made this outfit a beauty to me.

2013 CMA Awards

Easy picks for me last night with the 2013 CMA Awards fashion! The two belles of the ball in my opinion were Carrie Underwood (I'm not sure she can do any wrong in my eyes... and that hair!!!), and Kellie Pickler. Both dresses have some glitz and interesting elements and are accessorized simply which is perfection.

Then, with slightly less "typical" formal looks (but in my opinion more wearable) there's Jana Kramer in a modest black top with a stunning water colour skirt, and Rachel Smith in a super elegant lace gown. Love these.

Busy busy busy...!

Well here I am, one day into a very busy week! Just one of those times where there is a strong wave of many things being thrown your way all at once. With a desire to still post I think this week is going to simply be a quote week. For me or for you - who doesn't like a good quote to keep moving! Happy Tuesday!

Quote, do something good today

Looks of the Week

This week there were for sure some beautiful looks but in the spirit of fall and colder temps I was in the mood for some looks that were a little more wearable/realistic/everyday gal. Here's Alessandra Ambrosio and Ashley Tisdale in a couple of looks that really any of us can get inspiration from! I'm sure we all can picture ourselves wearing one or both of these. I definitely see Alessandra's look as a work look or a cocktail evening, where Ashley's is definitely weekend wear.

In other news, today marks the first day of November (can you believe it), and therefore Movember! Some gals (understandably) aren't too fond of Movember but I find it hilarious and it's all for a good cause... so bring it on! :)
