Summer Capsule Wardrobe

Tired of staring into your closet trying to come up with outfit combinations, only to revert to the same ‘ole, same ‘ole?  Me too, that’s why I wanted to try a Summer capsule wardrobe, based on a minimalist idea, to come up with 36 different outfits from 18 items I already owned (and you probably do too!)

I get a LOT of writers and companies asking if I’ll post their articles, or links to their companies, on my blog.

Celebrating the milestone of Instagram 10K with a giant thank you and the “traditional” 10K balloon bouquet.

Why? My struggle with marketing.

This is a blog post I wrote in 2015 – so I’m not as thin and sexy (or even married) as I was back then…

who am I kidding – I’ve never been this thin and sexy (lol) but my conundrum/frustration is still valid – I think that marketing TO women is missing the mark.

I have a bee in my bonnet.

How much does it cost to run a blog?

Starting seeds in newspaper pots

It’s May 2-4 weekend in Canada!  Woohoo!

Honey Nut Cheerios has/had a promotion going to […]
