Beautiful Blue Boats

I thought you might enjoy this photo I took at the beach in a little fishing village. I love the colors in the photo, so bright and brilliant that you can't help but smile. If some day I ever have a house I think I will decorate a room around this photo!!

Muchos Besos,

Flower Power

I am really getting into the whole floral trend this season. I love love love my new skirt from Mango. It has added a little punch of color into my wardrobe.  It is almost like wearing a bouquet of flowers,  it will not only cheer you up but everybody around you. 

The floral trend this season has a bit of a grown up twist in comparison to other florals. The florals this season come in a variety of colors including red, pink, blue and purple however they are on a dark background navy blue or black.  I know that the floral skirt would look super cool paired with a floral top but maybe I will give it a try when I get a little bit braver. For now I will enjoy the skirt as is.

I have been wearing this grey t-shirt a ton but it just seems to go great with everything I own!!

It is almost getting too hot here for me to be wearing tights and boots but I guess I shouldn't complain!

Fendi Spring Summer 2010

While the spring sumer 2010 season is full of whimsical, Parisian inspired, tattered edges and pastel colors, the Fendi Ready to Wear line has encompassed all of these trends in their line. I picked out a few of my favorite looks which are inspiring me this season. If you want to check out the entire collection you can do so here at Fendi SS 2010 Ready to Wear

I love love love this skirt. She looks like she means business but so feminine at the same time. 

I love this dress. So pretty and light. And the belt just gives it that little bit of extra. I'm happy to see that belts are still appearing on the runways as you can do so much with them. 
Check out these shoes!! I think they are great minus the heel as I am a flats girl!! 

Ciao for now,

I Heart Chanel!!

I first saw a Chanel inspired sweater worn by Alexa Chung and I immediately fell in love. I love the contrast of the iconic, clean cut, and modern lines of the Chanel suit jacket inspired sweater with the ultra casual t-shirt and jeans. 

I picked up this great pendant from a market here in GDL - it a a mere 25 pesos which is less than $2.00.

Have A Wonderful Weekend!!

Here is just a quick snap shot of the flowers that I got for Valentines Day!! One of the perks of being in Mexico is that tropical flowers are readily available and they still look as nice as the day I got them.  

Have a Wonderful Weekend!! 
Hasta Pronto,

I came across the cutest little chocolate shop downtown in Guadalajara! Assuming that the chocolates would be ultra sweet, as many dulces in Mexico are, I was completely surprised when I bit into my first  chocolate. It was not too sweet, not too bitter, but just right - I am sure that Godly Locks would have enjoyed it. Not only is the chocolate completely delicious but they also comes in all sorts of shapes, sizes and designs.        

I am not sure who these chocolates were supposed to appeal to but it seems like they sell alot of them. 
The store was also tastefully decorated!!!

These to ladies were great!! They were happy, willing to help and super knowledgeable about the chocolates.

After all this talk about chocolate, I think I may take a trip down to Shocolaa!! You should do the same - you deserve it!!

Ciao bellas,

Prairie At Heart

Since I have now been away from Canada for about a month, I thought it was time to pay homage my beloved Prairie Province of Saskatchewan. I know that it is not one of the major destinations to see before you die, but it is amazing. There are over 200 000 thousand lakes, pristine forest, and the most amazing sunsets. And despite the common misconception that people from Saskatchewan have no style, I would have to say we are doing pretty good. Some of the best dressed people I know either live in Saskatchewan or are from Saskatchewan. I think you should be proud of where you come from - it has made you who you are!!!

The name of this dress was "Prairie Girl" and so not only did I love the name but the dress was amazing as well. It is a shirt dress detailed with sea shell buttons.

Happy Valentines Day!!

I am so happy to be spending Valentines Day with the most amazing man in the world - My Husband!!!  Although I sometimes think that Valentines Day was created as a consumer holiday, I still love the premise of the idea.  It is just a day to let the one you love know how much you love and appreciate them!!

I will leave you with a few pictures from our wedding. It was the wedding of my dreams and I actually don't think that the day could have been any more perfect.  But I am sure everyone says that about their own wedding! However, I must say it was like a fairy tale - we rode up the gothic style 18th century church in a horse and carriage, I walked down the isle with my mother and father to an amazing quartet and an beautiful opera singer. And the dress, oh the dress, I how love thee....It was a Vera Wang from the Princess Collection. There were only a few made to accompany her Princess Fragrance. It was pink silk on the top accompanied with layers and layers and layers ..... and layers of silk tulle.

My friend gave me the most amazing compliment yesterday when she said that, "You and Dominic just as in love, if not more than the day you were married." And I immediately replied, "Of course, if it wasn't so, then I wouldn't be married."

I  still love my wedding dress as much as the day I first saw it. 

Oh... The Kiss.... that every girl dreams of....

I wish you the most joyous and love filled day and may all your dreams come true!!

Happy Valentines Day,

Singing in the Rain..... Just Singing in the Rain!!!!

 As I posted a few days ago, it was raining cats and dogs here for days!! Luckily it only lasted a few days until the sun came out to warm the city up agian. Although I don't own a pair of Hunter Rain Boots, this would have been a perfect occasion to wear them. My boots were soaking wet and my feet were frozen the entire day. There are Zara's Mango's and Berschka's everywhere in this city, which I have really been enjoying, which I am sure you will notice in my upcoming posts.

La Casona!

We stayed at this amazing boutique hotel in Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico. The decor and the service were both top notch. And although I dont say this very often, I am not sure if I could have done any better with the decor. It is absolutely speculator. 

Each room in the hotel has a different name and a corresponding theme. We stayed in the Peacock Room which I have to say was amazing. Modern Chic Mexican style, with vintage furniture painted modern colors like bright pink, blue and green.
They also provided an amazing continental breakfast with fresh fruit, yogurt, granola and the most delicious banana chocolate chip muffins. We had our own little picnic on our private corner balcony. And the best part about the hotel was that it was reasonably priced. I will definitely go back and I recommend you stay there as well. Check out their website at:



P.S - I also wanted to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful, cute, adorable and loving Otto. We miss you very much and hope you are having a wonderful day!!!! Lots of Hugs and Kisses

Cool Colours and Hot Pants!!

While I really did like these jeans, the $10 price tag was the real inspiration for me to buy them. I have had them since this summer and I was just unsure if I could pull them off or not. But if pink jeans would work anywhere it would be Mexico. The bright colors of the jeans not only compliment the bright personalities of the people but the colours of the Pueblos as well. I love the contrast of the pink jeans and the bright blue wall. This is the true beauty of Mexico.

Memories of the Beach!

It is cold and raining here in Guadalajara and I am dreaming of the hot weather at the beach. Wouldn't it be great to sail around the world in one of these amazing sailboats. Just a thought!

We came upon this Ghost Town on the border of Utah and Nevada on our drive down to Mexico. While we didn't get to see any goblins or ghosts the town was definitely deserted. I am sure however, that at one point in time the hotel/saloon was bustling with cowboys of the wild west and the pioneer women of the prairies. It is these very women who inspired many of the spring/summer 2010 collections. Check out Ralph Lauren,  Marc Jacobs, Chanel and Vivienne Westwood Red Label for more prairie inspirations. Although my clothes are not so pioneer inspired, it was a great chance to do the whole layered look before we hit the hot weather!!
