Favourite Fall Outfit & Tres-Chic Fashion Thursday Link Up

One of my favourite Fall outfits so far has been pairing a blouse with my boyfriend jeans and wearing them with booties. I was in a store and this lady complemented me on my outfit. It felt so nice. She said “I love your style!” It made me feel really good. Is that arrogant or conceited? Cuz it’s not like I feel like I’m this hot thing or anything, it just felt really nice to receive a complement from a complete stranger.

Transitioning Your Denim Vest From Summer To Fall

I’ve been wanting to get back to my regular Wednesday posts about 1 item different ways and was thinking of having a Fall component to it. The lovely Salma, from The Write Balance, gave me the idea for today’s post. Since I can’t get enough of denim vests, she suggested a post on transitioning your denim vest to fall. So here it is ladies, transitioning your denim vest from Summer to Fall.

Denim Vest

I’ve got four great looks to help you ladies transition your favourite Summer cover up and take it into Fall. Three of the looks are ones that I currently have and the last one is one that I am hoping to own soon: camo pants. I’m hoping to add it to my wardrobe soon and you bet I’ll be doing a post on how to style them different ways. Stay tuned… :)

There’s really no difference in styling a denim vest from Summer to Fall. It’s a cover up for both seasons and that’s exactly how I approached styling it. Style it with a baseball sweater and coloured jeans, or with leather leggings and a t-shirt with a statement necklace or over a dress and booties or with camo pants and a graphic tee. The possibilities are endless. Thanks Salma for the inspiration. I was ready to put it aside for next Spring and I thank you for the inspiration.

I couldn’t decide between flats or heels, so I decided to style it both ways.

The idea of styling your denim vest is to think of it as a simple cover up, like a cardigan or blazer. It completes your outfit. Next time you’re trying to figure out what to wear it with, try throwing it over black jeans and a simple tee.

May this blog inspire you to see the different ways you can wear your denim vest and create great combinations to transition it from Summer to Fall.

Fitwells For Women Week #1

Fitwells For Women

A month ago, I was contacted by the wonderful Salma, from The Write Balance, to see if I was interested in joining Fitwells For Women for 1 month and then write a review. I jumped at the chance. Since injuring my back, at work in November, I haven’t worked out. I had done some yoga but honestly I was scared to re-injure my back. Lately I’ve been feeling very sluggish, tired, irritable, bloated, experienced lots of headaches and suffered from heartburn. So I was really excited to be presented with this opportunity. For 1 month I have unlimited access to the gym, classes, weights, personal training and even childminding. Since the teachers are on strike, the childminding will come in very handy.

Before my first workout

Fitwells For Women

My healthy breakfast: smoothie and fresh fruit with Chia, Hemp, Holy Crap mix and Greek Yogurt

Fitwells For Women

Last Monday was my first class, step and sculpt. I had a healthy breakfast beforehand and got there nice and early. My only criticism is that when I arrived, the girl at the front desk wasn’t able to give me a schedule and she was not able to do my physical assessment. I would have preferred to have my physical assessment before I started. Something to think about next time. I was ready to give it 100%. The class starts and I’m doing ok and then about 10 mins in, I felt lightheaded and then 5 mins later I wanted to throw up. I pushed through it and by about 20 mins into the class I was feeling great. Holy shit, I got my ass handed to me. First of all, it has been years since I did a step class and second of all, it’s been 10 months since I did any hardcore workout.

I felt great after the class. Re-energized and my indigestion, that I had been suffering with for the past few weeks, and lack of energy had gone away. I felt better than I had in a long time. Although I was extremely sore the next few days, it was worth it. I felt great.

Post workout picture

Fitwells For Women

The instructor was awesome. She kept me energized and enthused. It felt great to be working out again.

I did Yoga on Wednesday and again a wonderful class. It not only involved breathing correctly and emptying your mind of stuff (I have to work on that…) it was also great for strength training. I felt completely rejuvenated after that class.

I did my third class on Saturday, body blast, and it did not disappoint. I’m still getting into the grove of step again and I’ll be honest I had some trouble getting a few steps, but I was patient with myself and was able to finally get them.

My first week was amazing at Fitwells for Women. I honestly wasn’t sure what to make of them as I read some not so good reviews but they were mainly about their cancellation policy. They are friendly, the place is clean, it’s big, the instructors are awesome and I really like the childminding. I ended up using it on Monday and my son loved it. They have 2 people watching the kids, as young as newborns. They have a lot of great toys. My son loved it.

So far, so good. I had a great first week. My goal is to go 3 times a week. I like that they offer classes all day, even in the evenings with childminding in the morning and evenings, which works well for me. I love the way I feel, both physically and energy wise. Looking forward to my XLab class on Friday.

May this blog inspire you to get back to the gym and if you live in the lower Mainland, try Fitwells For Women.  I completely understand that it takes a lot of time, effort and willpower but it’s worth it. You feel better about yourself, you look better and it’s a great way to show your kids that we all need to stay active. Our kids need to see their parents staying active, if we expect them to stay active. We all lead busy lives and have a myriad of excuses, boy did I have lots of them, but the trick is to not think. To plan and just do. Like Nike says “Just Do It!!!!!” It’s so easy to fall into a rut, especially when you have kids. They are always the perfect excuse not to workout, but I’m here to tell you that you will feel so much better if you get back to the gym, I promise. I feel great, sore, but great.

*Although I was compensated for this post, all opinions are mine*

Favourite Summer Outfits

New post today!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!!!! If you follow me on Instagram, yesterday you got a sneak peak into today’s post. Since Summer still is in full swing here, I wanted to recap my favourite looks and items of the Summer. I owe today’s post to my wonderful husband, who made breakfast yesterday so I could blog, before we had to tackle some chores, shopping and a bbq at a friend’s place.

By far my favourite purchase and most beloved item of the Summer has to be my denim vest. At first I was reluctant to buy it. Wasn’t sure if I would get enough use out of it. Was I ever wrong!!! I wore it so much. It’s such a great layering piece over anything: dresses, skirts, shorts and the perfect completer piece. On Saturday I wore it to the zoo with shorts and a tank top, again can be seen on Instagram.

Denim Vest

The next item that I couldn’t get enough of is dresses. Long or short, I wanted to wear them as much as possible, considering all I pretty much wear in the Winter are pants. Definitely my favourite style of dress is the Maxi dress. It’s elegant, simple, light and easily dressed up.

dresses

Shorts were also another favourite of mine, especially my cuffed denim ones and my printed ones. As you can see, a theme is emerging with my Summer outfits: denim vest!!!!! Like I wrote earlier, I just couldn’t get enough of it. Again like with the dresses, shorts also have a short life span here in Vancouver so I tried to wear them as much as possible. I loved wearing them with a top and blazer.

Shorts

Last but certainly not least I can’t forget to mention my love of skirts. Over the years, I’ve acquired quite the collection. The sample below is only a fraction of the skirts I own. I love pairing them with a tank top and some bling. One of my favourite outfits, turned out to be one that I had never worn before. My striped skirt with a sleeveless polka dot blouse and my wedges. Sometimes experimenting pays off. I’m looking forward to wearing this combination more next Spring/Summer.

Skirts

Which one is your favourite look? Gotta say it’s a tie between the polka dot blouse and striped skirt and my tulip dress and denim vest.

May this blog inspire you to experiment with what you have in your wardrobe. You’d be surprised at the outfits just waiting to be created.

Looking forward to showing you all my favourite Fall trends. You can follow me on Instagram to see my daily outfits, see what I’m up to and get sneak peaks into my favourite Fall trends.

An Edgy LBD, Wedding Anniversary Celebration & Tres-Chic Fashion Thursday Link Up

Before I get to my post, I just wanted to thank you all for your sweet and supportive comments in regards to my absence and to Monday’s post. This blog isn’t going anywhere, it’s just been a crazy Summer. Here’s hoping the teachers strike ends soon so we can get back to normal and I can enjoy some “me” time while my son is at Kindergarten.

I also wanted to mention that I finally joined Instagram!!!!!! I know it’s taken me a long time, as many of you have asked if I have an IG account. Well now I do. I’m still trying to get the hang of it, but I would love it if you would follow me @ http://instagram.com/vodkainfusedlemonade

Last Wednesday, my husband and I celebrated our 9 year wedding anniversary. On Saturday we headed out for a fabulous dinner at Hawksworth restaurant. Without hesitation, I would describe my husband and I as foodies. We absolutely love food. A good friend of mine recommended it to me and it did not disappointed. We had a wonderful evening.

Banana Republic was having their 50% off Friends and Family sale a while back and I fell in love with their black Sloan-Fit Faux-Leather Sheath dress. I like it because it’s an edgy take on a classic dress. It was the perfect dress to celebrate our 9 year wedding anniversary. It was a big hit with my husband :)

Activities For Your Kids During The Strike

Kid Activities

Today I am home for a number of reasons. The first being that my son caught a stomach bug and the second, and most important reason, is that the teachers remain on strike. This was going to be a post about me ranting and raving about how our government is full of absolute shit and how they don’t care about our kids, but I realized that this is everywhere at the moment. If you want to read about my rant that I wrote in June click here. I realized that I can continue to be negative or I can do something about it.

Earlier this Summer I realized that I wanted to keep my son’s brain stimulated. I wanted to keep all that he learned in Preschool fresh in his mind and I also wanted to build on it. I was at Michaels and I found a great book called Big Workbook Kindergarten. I also found similar books at Costco, Walmart and at Chapters. Honestly the best $10 I spent. I can’t believe how much he learned. He learned about pattern recognition, comparing objects, picking the bigger object vs. the smaller one, spelling, writing, counting, learning to tell time. It’s been wonderful for his development. We did a little bit every day and he finished it well before the end of the Summer. I was at Walmart at the beginning of August and picked up some amazing tools in anticipation of the strike continuing. Below are some great items I picked up that won’t break the bank and will keep your child’s brain going and will help to prepare them for Kindergarten. (My husband joked that by the time school starts, my son will be at a grade 2 level.)

Spelling: Crayola 4 word double sided puzzle

Crayola Puzzle

I found this on my way into Target earlier in August and my son loves it. It’s a simple double sided puzzle. The idea is that you can make 36 simple 4 letter words. It’s a great way to get your kids to start learning how to read and spell.

Activity Books

Activity Boooks

These books can be found anywhere: Costco, Walmart, Chapters and even Michaels. What I like about them is that they build on concepts and start preparing your child to think, to think in an academic way. I love watching my son learn how do to each activity. You should have seen his little eyes when he made the connection regarding patterns. I love it. They have books from all ages, Kindergarten all the way up to grade 6.

Writing Your Letters & Numbers

activity

In preschool my son learned to write the alphabet and numbers. I wanted to continue that and build on it, so I decided to purchase a few exercise books, which are really cheap right now for back to school. The idea is to get them to repeatedly write the letters, upper and lower case, along with numbers. For me writing legibly is very important. I can’t stand poor penmanship!!!! These books can be purchased anywhere.

Flashcards: Learning to spell

Flashcards

When I was in Walmart they had these flashcards for $2.99. The idea is that one set of cards has a letter from the alphabet and the other cards have the ending. You now need to put the cards together to make a word. It’s great because it teaches kids letter recognition, spelling and rhyming. My son loves it. It’s a great way to introduce your child to spelling and reading.

Telling Time

Learning to tell Time

I know that kids don’t learn to tell time until they are in grade 2 or 3, but my son loves watches. I told him that if he learns to tell time the right way, then I’ll buy him whatever watch he wants. I found this pack of 36 dry erase clocks for only $4 at Target. Thought it would be the perfect tool to start teaching my son to tell time.

BC Curriculum from Kindergarten to Grade 9

If you’re concerned about what your child is missing during the strike, you can click on this link. It’s from the BC government and it includes what your child should be learning from Kindergarten to grade 9. So if you’re worried, print it off and see where your child is at and then you can see where you need to supplement. Again here is the link: https://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/irp/gc.php?lang=en

Day camps, Daycare & activities offered in the lower mainland

Here are 2 great links from The Province and from Global on different day camps, daycares and activities to help keep your kids busy, and your sanity intact.

http://blogs.theprovince.com/2014/08/26/day-camps-and-programs-offered-during-b-c-teachers-strike/

http://globalnews.ca/news/1348742/daycare-options-during-the-teachers-strike/

Learning to read

I have yet to check this out, but a friend of mine posted this saying her son likes it. It’s called Reading Eggs. It’s an interactive way, using the computer, to learn how to read. They have activities and games to make learning to read fun. This is definitely something we will be trying out.

I really hope that this helps alleviate some anxiety that you may have regarding your child’s learning being affected. Regardless of whether or not the strike would have happened, I still would have invested in these resources. I don’t believe that my child’s learning solely depends on his teacher and what he learns in school. It’s up to us parents to solidify and reinforce what they learn at school. We also need to take responsibility for their learning. It’s a team effort.

I truly hope that this strike ends soon as it has saddened me to no end that we couldn’t enjoy back to school this year with all the turmoil and uncertainty.

May this blog inspire you purchase some tools to help keep your child’s mind stimulated during the strike.

Happy Hump Day Everyone!!!!!!!

What I’ve Learned This Summer Is That I can’t Have It All and It’s Ok

I struggled with what to title this post. Should it be “You Can’t Have Everything!!!”, “What I’ve Been Up To”, and then the current title came to mind. Yes it has been a while and it’s been mostly by my choosing. This Summer my son was 5, the last Summer he and I would have together before he starts his school career. It’s also the first one where he and I could completely enjoy (he being more independent).

Before this Summer, when we would go to the park, the pool, the beach or even my backyard, I would have to stick close by him. This Summer everything changed. I felt like he was more independent, more confident, more understanding of rules and consequences. This has been the Summer where we could go to the park and I could relax more, where we would go to the pool and I could enjoy watching him jump off the diving board (with his life jacket on), knowing that he can swim and that he’s comfortable in the water. Although I’m still extremely vigilant, and by his side, I can watch a little more and be a little less hands on. Does that make sense?

So with this found independence for my son, came a little less independence for this mom. I found that we were out more in the pool and beach and less at home, which mean’t less time for me to blog. I just couldn’t justify keeping us both indoors while I spent hours blogging, researching, taking outfit pictures. I wanted us to enjoy the beautiful, warm weather, enjoy our Summer, make memories. So I unconsciously and then consciously made the decision to not kill myself trying to juggle it all, because I just couldn’t!!! I couldn’t blog every day and put in the effort that it required to do good quality posts, while running my household, working (shift work sucks!!!!!!), and trying to enjoy our very short Summer. I didn’t want to plunk my son down in front of the tv while I blogged. I wanted us to enjoy our Summer. I wanted to enjoy being his mom and play with him. Also please keep in mind that my husband and I have no family here to help us. It’s just him and I and my son is also not in daycare, so that means it really is just my husband, me and my son. No help.

There’s 2 things that I have learned in my 35 years of existence and that’s “Never say never” and “You can’t have it all!!!!!”. It’s true, you can’t have it all, no matter how hard you try. You can delude yourself into thinking you can, but you can’t. Somethings gotta give and will give. There’s no such thing are perfection; as a perfect home, perfect life, perfect marriage, perfect child, perfect mother, perfect wife. What does exist is making it right for you. All these superficial magazine articles titled “You can have it all, just read these 5 points” is total bullshit. Something will suffer, someone will suffer, and most likely it will be you, your sanity and your health.

I felt like that was happening to me. I was trying to juggle it all and I felt like I was going crazy. I was frustrated, irritable and exhausted, not enjoying things and I didn’t want that. I wanted to enjoy being a mom and enjoy my son being 5. So I chose to make that my priority. I will always have blogging, but my son will not always be 5. Next Summer will be different. He will be 6 by then with different needs and life will also be different as it’s always changing.

So I hope by writing this post you understand that you can’t have it all, to give yourself permission to make your family and your health a priority. I read many comments and posts this Summer from other fellow mom bloggers about how it’s been hard to juggle everything in the Summer. It’s ok. We all feel the same way.

I am hoping that once my son is in school full time (the teachers are on strike, so I’m hoping that by the time you guys read this on Monday it has resolved), I can dedicate more time to my blog and be back to blogging more regularily. I have so many ideas for my blog and what I would like, but I have to be patient as all good things come to those who wait.

May this blog inspire you to realize that you can’t have it all and to not beat yourself up over it. Do the best you can and that’s all you can really do.

Happy Labour Day Everyone!!!!!

How To Create An Outfit & Tres-Chic Fashion Thursday Link Up

Last week I needed to run to the grocery store and I was just going to put on a maxi dress and head out the door. Then it dawned on me that I could add a denim vest, my heart pendant and my cross-body bag to make my simple maxi dress into an outfit. Have you ever just walked out the door in simple jeans and t-shirt and then saw someone who added a necklace and blazer and thought wow, she sure looks put together??? That’s exactly what I was thinking as I was putting together my outfit. Why head out the door in a simple maxi when I can look and feel more put together??? It took me only a few extra minutes and I felt much better about myself.

Maxi Dress

Dress (Gap). Vest (Old Navy). Necklace (J Crew). Watch (Michael Kors). Bracelet (Stella & Dot). Purse (Fossil c/o The Bay).

The key to creating an outfit is to slowly build on it. Start with a blank canvas. In my case it was a simple maxi dress. Next step is to add a cardigan, blazer or a denim vest. The idea is to complete the look. You can also do that with a scarf, once the weather gets cooler. Next add some jewelry. A great statement necklace, bracelets, earrings, watch, hat, you name. The key is to add some subtle touches. Then add some cute shoes, in my case I decided on some sandals. I then completed my look with a cross-body bag. Again the purse can bring the entire outfit together. It may seem daunting but play around with your jewelry, with hats, scarves, purses, shoes. It’s exactly like dress up!!!!!!

Chambray & Stripes Day & Night

I got inspired for this next outfit by the lovely Carylee from More Pieces of Me. She styled a chambray top with a striped skirt. Love the result. So I decided to style my chambray and striped skirt 2 ways: one for the day and one for the evening. I’ll be honest I don’t have a job that requires me to wear heels, it really doesn’t require me to wear anything other than comfy scrubs and supportive shoes. So for me to wear this outfit with heels during the day is totally unrealistic. Imagine me chasing a toddler around the park in heels??? It would be quite entertaining to say the least :) I did, however, manage to come up with a very realistic day look for us busy moms chasing our kids around. For a day look try wear the chambray as a jacket over a graphic tee, converse runners and a cross-body bag. It’s still a polished look, but comfortable and realistic for a busy mom on the go. For an evening look try tying the chambray top, add heels, pearls and a colourful clutch.

Chambray & Stripes

Style it with a graphic tee, runners and cross-body bag

Chambray & Stripes

Top (American Eagle) Graphic Tee (JAC by Jacqueline Conoir). Skirt (Gap). Shoes (Converse c/o The Bay). Purse (Fossil c/o The Bay).

Style it with a simple knot, heels, colourful clutch and accessorize with pearls

Chambray & Stripes

Top (American Eagle). Skirt (Gap). Shoes (Aldo). Necklace (J Crew). Bracelets (Jacob). Purse (Kate Spade). Watch (Michael Kors).

May this blog inspire you to try pairing Chambray with stripes and see all the different outfits you can create.
