Mistletoe and Summer Flowers

In Uncategorized on December 17, 2009 at 4:28 pm

It’s crazy how, after a week of -40c weather, -10c feels so summery! “You know you’re Canadian when…”

I’m looking through Etsy today, trying to decide about a custom buckle from Fosterweld, browsing Gift Guides (and lusting over this summer floral picture by Get The Picture) and getting in the Christmas mood!

A few more things I need to do to get into the Christmas mood:

  • Watch Love Actually
  • Put on the Xmas tunes and wrap gifts
  • Drink some mint hot chocolate
  • Bake goodies!

Tonight my little sister is coming to sleep over. She’s 15 and I love it when she sleeps over and we can have a Girls Night. Chick flicks here we come!

I think I’m in love with this artists work

I wish I was a kid again

I want this picture. The pink one.

I love this blog theme.

I want summer back!

I need to go home and do some crafts.

I need gloves. My hands are freezing.

Warm it Up

With love baby!

Just a clip I love (: Brandy has been one of my favorite artists since I was young. Great memories! Here’s one of her new songs.

Well, I’m back! Where was I? On a great long week in Calgary and Edmonton, visiting my sister, friends, shopping, eating Sushi and shopping my butt off. It was a great week off, sleep-in’s (kinda, I’m getting old and cant’ sleep past 9 now…) and a refreshing bit away from work.

I got so many new clothes and (YAY!!!) splurged on a bedroom set from IKEA. We’ve been married 3 years and haven’t ever done-up our room. So we finally bought a great bed frame, bed side tables, lamps, curtains, a new quilt and sheet set (Linen and Things is going out of business so I got a great deal). I also got a gift certificate for Pier One from my sister so I bought some colorful decorations for the bedside tables. We do need to paint the room yet, pale pink and green, but the cream colored bed and tables go perfectly. The curtains are a beautiful chocolate linen fabric, and the lamps are deep brown with cream shades. We stayed up until midnight setting everything up and it looks breathtaking. I love it. I couldnt’ stop looking around and grinning!

I also had an Arbonne Party while I was in Calgary. My sister booked it and it went really well! Four girls showed up, which is a great number, and I made the whole presentation without stumbling…although it’s ok if you do stumble. My sis and one of her friends bought a couple items so that was good. Since the warehouse that I order from is in Calgary, my sister received her order in four days. Crazy!

I’m in qualifications for District Manager (the second level in Arbonne) so I’m hoping to make quite a few sales this month and make it fully to that level. My Peel Party is tomorrow where I hope to make more sales and book more parties. Yay, cant’ wait!! We’re going to try out the Facial Peel and all of the RE9 set, and of course just visit and eat some Christmas munchies! Yum yum!

Christmas is almost here! Can you believe it?? I can’t. It came so fast…hopefully this year I can love every minute of it before it slips past us.

I have such a huge amount of family to buy for (7 siblings, mom, dad, inlaws and their children…which reminds me! Did I tell you I just became an aunty again?! My sister in law had her little Briea Lynae and she’s the most ADORABLE little newborn you’ve ever seen. I’m so proud!). Etsy as always is coming to the rescue! Last year I bought every single gift on Etsy, although hubby bought his boy gifts at Canadian Tire. It was a life saver not to have to leave the house or drive 2 hours to the city.

This year I have hubby’s mom and sister to buy for and while I was browsing through Etsy, these amazing post cards poped up. What a great stocking stuffer!! They’re colorful, which is what everyone needs in this dreary winter weather, and they’re just eye-catching!

Feature Friday – Amazonika

In Uncategorized on October 31, 2008 at 6:12 pm

I refuse to let winter get me down! I’m going to surround myself with color; flowers on the table, colorful clothes, colorful decorations. Amazonika is a great way to keep color in your life through the dreary winter months.

Amazonikahas prices that are too affordable to pass up, and products that will make you smile. Check out their beautiful shop on Etsy and stock up on great stocking-stuffers or a nice piece of jewelry for the Christmas party.

Party On!

Christmas is always a great excuse to buy a new dress. I know I need to! This dress from ArmoursansAnguish, on Etsy of course, is perfect for the holiday season. It’s shimmery and has great detailing. It’s PERFECT!
