The Meridian 66!!

We happened to have our camera with us, when we were out for a walk on the harbour yesterday, so we thought we would snap a few pics. Although the outfit is not that exciting, it IS one of my everyday outfits!! I have been loving my leopard print belt and wearing with almost every outfit!! It just seems to give the look a lit but of pizazz!!! I would however, love a black leather satchel bag to complete the outfit!! I am still searching for the perfect one!!! And when I find it, I will be sure to let you know!

This is one of my favorite boats that has been sitting in the habour since we got here. I absolutely love the color as it reminds me of hot tropical seas, even though the boat is sitting in near freezing water. 

Shirt: Joe Fresh
Pants: Zara
Belt: Madewell
Boots: Madewell
Coat: Filippa K
Snood: J Crew

I hope you have some wonderful weekend plans in store. We having a bit of a dinner party which should be exciting!! Have a fantastic weekend!!

Muchos Besos,

Rosey Posey.....

I know that this rose salve has been popular for a long time but I have actually never tried it, until recently, when my sister bought it for me for Christmas!! And I finally know what all of the rage is about, as it is amazing!!! 

A multi-purpose salve, it provides moisture to all parts of your body including lips, elbows and knees, and  even minor burns. Not only does it make your lips super soft, but it gives them the perfect tinge of a dewy ruby red!! Plus, it comes in the cutest of tins, that I love carrying around in my purse!!! So, if you haven't tried it, I suggest you do!!!

Some Mid Week Street Style Inspiration!!

I was feeling like I needed a bit of inspiration to get dressed this morning. So, I turned to my most trusted style blog, Stockholm Street Style to get some ideas for today's outfit!! These are the looks which caught my eye and why!!

I love how she really worked the brown color pallet and the gold bow is a nice change from the black one we have been seeing everywhere.


She makes this outfit look so effortless and beautiful!! I would love to wear this today!!!


Love the pop of color that the pink pants give her!! Plus I have a pink pair of jeans which may be able to give a similar look!

This look is so simple, but I somehow love it!!


The layers of black that this girl has going on is amazing!! A perfect winter look!!


Well I am off to put all of this inspiration to good use!! Hope you are having a wonderful day!!

All my love,

Summer Memories

I feel like I have been away from the blog forever. In reality, we have just moved into a new apartment and we still don't have our internet connection hooked up!! I hope to have everything up and running by tomorrow!!

I love this print entitled, "Summer Memories" by Kristy Bee, who has a great collection of romantic and vintage inspired photography on her etsy shop!!! 

When we lived in Taiwan, we kept a fan similar to this one at the end of our bed to keep us cool at night. The fan was our saving grace - I don't think I could have stood the heat without it!! I can't wait to feel heat like that again!!

Navy Seal!!

Although the snow keeps falling, the sun is getting warmer and it is starting to feel like spring!!! Although it is our first winter here in St.John's, we have heard that the snow will entirely gone by March - which is only a few weeks away!!

I was so inspired by the beautiful french pouf that I posted about yesterday, that I thought I would wear my very own pouf from h&m. I think it looks lovely worn with this newly purchased shirt from Joe Fresh which was a steal of a deal at $10.00. I suggest that everybody go down to their neighborhood Joe Fresh and buy at least one shirt, as they come in a variety of colors. For only  $10.00, you can add a super versatile piece to your wardrobe - a definite must!!

Check out our little, rather big seal friend, just chillin' out on some ice in the middle of St. John's!! I think this seal is definitely a city girl!! 

Make sure to check out my give-away!! There are only a few days left to enter your name into the draw!!

Le Pouf Rose!!

I am so in love with this French Pouf from!! I think it would be the perfect accessory for a valentines extravaganza!! Speaking of, what are your plans??? Dominic and I were planning on going to Raymonds, which is supposedly the coolest restaurant in town. However, since it is brand new, it seems as though they are already booked for the day of love. So, it is our weekend mission to find a replacement restaurant. Wish us luck!!

P.S - I also love the model's headband and the perfect color of her lips. I think I am due for a new pink lipstick!! How about you??

Happy Birthday Little Buddy!!

Love Aunty Karen and Uncle Dodo!!

50's Inspired Wall Clock

I have been searching for this exact clock for ever. And now that I found it at Cosas - an online Swedish store, specializing in handicrafts from Sweden and around the world, they do not send to Canada.  I guess my search will have to continue - such a shame!!! 

If anyone knows of an online store where I can get such a clock and they will ship to Canada - please let me know!!

Hej Da,

Chocolate Love

Since moving to St.John's we have been hearing a lot about this cute little, European Deli/Bakery called Manna European Bakery. So today, we finally checked it out and were pleasantly surprised with a great selection of Euro-style bread!! 

Luckily for me, they also sold these delicious, love inspired Belgian chocolates. We bought them for our dessert tonight but I think they would make the perfect Valentines gift for the one you love!

A Sunday Drive.....

Since we have moved to St. John's, we have started a bit of a habit of going for Sunday Drives. While I thoroughly enjoy these countryside drives, we primary take these drives so that Dominic can search out  potential surf spots. As we are never really sure where we are going, since we sometimes drive a little, sometimes walk a little, and sometimes we even hike a little, I am always unsure of what to wear!! I am however, getting a lot better at learning how to dress for the weather here in St. John's. I have learnt that on any given day, and at any given time it may rain, snow, sleet, hail, be cloudy or sunny etc etc. 

One way to get around this rapid changing weather is to layer, layer, layer - I can't stress that enough. I have been finding all sorts of layering options in my wardrobe - giving me a ton of possibilities. While I have been mostly wearing black and dark colors this winter - the sun on Sunday inspired me to put some color on!!! My entire outfit was actually inspired by the necklace that I am wearing in the photos - I think it looks a bit like a Free People add. Anyways, the necklace is made by my super creative, super talented friend Jordan Zakoor. Make sure to take a good look because I am going to giving a necklace from her collection away later on this week!!

Dominic particularly enjoyed these photos because just behind me is a newly found surf spot, but unfortunately for him it was flat!!
