Fabulous Friday’s Linkup Party- Back to School and Another DIY!

Uhmm, I know I can’t stop September but, back to school already?? I’m still in flip flops (or barefoot) and wanting to hang out. Meanwhile, my two youngest daughters started classes already. They’re taking them online- no choice. But, that in itself required its own prepping and space-making (and time slots to boot!).  We’re all adjusting! 

The barefoot look.

As for me, I’m preparing!  I don’t begin teaching until late next week.  And on a very happy and excited note, I’ve begun a fantastic collab with a wonderful company here in Montreal.  You’ll be hearing more about this very soon!!

Besides the barefoot look, I’ve been living in jumpsuits and flip flops.

Here’s another jumpsuit fave (I know it looks similar to the top polka dot one- but this one has little darts instead!) Loving my famous (coz I wer them all the time) camelia flip flops. Summer please don’t go!!

Also always fun for me, I’ve done another DIY!  The cold shoulder dress that was revamped (maybe you already saw the post or IGTV on my Insta feed?).  If not, here’s the pic and a little video clip for your enjoyment😊

I have a bunch of things waiting for me to revamp.  So, I’ve pledged to myself to do at least one a week.  They aren’t all worthy of Insta or blog posting (as a lot of it is mending lol!!)- but I will share what I think you might like and want to learn to do as well.

This week I was also featured on Michelle’s blog: My Bijou Life Online!! Thanks so much Michelle for featuring me- I love the ladies you placed me with!! How we wore white!

Now- Let me take a moment to THANK ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN LINKING UP!!!  Honestly, you don’t know how much it means to me!!  And although I may not always comment, I do read every single linked up post- I promise!!!

And from those linked posts, see here which were my picks for this week:

My Favourite Linkup Fashion Diva of the Week: Gail of Is This Mutton

I’m a goner for a great polka-dot!! And this Styling is Superb!! How darling does she look!!!! She added a lime green collier- and that exquisite touch seals the deal for me!

My Favourite Real- Life- Talk- Linkup Read of the Week: by Shelbee of Shelbee on The Edge, for her post: Love Your Body, It’s the Only One You’ve Got.

This post was so on point and very real on all levels- It’s a must read for all women. Thanks for writing about this and on your own personal note as well.

My Favourite Informative Linkup Read of the Week was by Lizzie of : Lizzie and Lace, for her post on : Hidden Crown Extensions Review, Update and Comparison

I loved reading this so much because I’m such a girl who’s all about her mane (you could never tell, right?!). I love reading this type of info regarding anything that has to do with hair or enhancing it!

Fabulous Friday Linkup Party…and My BDay Recap!

Hope you’re all ready for the weekend my lovelies! Last Sunday I finally got to celebrate my Bday and cut a cake! And- the weather was the worse!! BUT…just as we were about to sit down inside, the sun came out! So out we went and set it all up – we were given a two hour window and we got it done! Got to cut my cake and open some cute and very thoughtful presents!

Take a look:

Jean Claude Poitras’ book! He is our famous Montreal Designer Legend!! I missed the exhibition at the Museum (thanks Covid)- but now I have his book!!
Y’all know how much I love to cook and entertain- how cute is this personalized cheese platter!! (Love anything with my name on it lol!!)
My husband did the BBQ and I cooked the side dishes- love doing it!
This is how you blow out candles the ‘Social Distancing’ way!

My daughter, her husband and the newborn baby couldn’t make it (again, thanks Covid)- but we still celebrated and had a great time…while the weather lasted.

That same evening there was a horrible thunder storm and we ran out of power! Oh well!

And now- Onto my Favourite Fashion Diva of the Week:

Shelbee from Shelbee on the Edge for her post : An Exercise on Self Confidence

Isn’t she absolutely stunning! And her article is unbelievably relatable- go check it out.

And- for my Favourite Linkup Read of the week:

Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood posted a heart-wrenching post on human trafficking, and along with it was a poem by Jennifer Morrison: Innocence Lost.

Why are we not doing more against these atrocities?? Shouldn’t this BE NUMBER 1 IN ALL POLITICAL AGENDAS??

AND NOW…Are you ready for the Link Up Party?!!!

Have a Great Weekend Everyone!

Fabulous Friday’s Link- Up!

Fabulous Friday and a Fabulous new week for me…Coz I became a Grandmother again!  My second grandson arrived on Monday- and I couldn’t be more excited- I’m bursting with joy!  There is a downside though…due to quarantine, I’m not allowed anywhere near them.  My daughter and husband have to do it all on their own.  Facetime is there for me to give some comfort…but it’s not the same.  A new mom needs help!  I can’t wait for this awful pandemic to leave us for good.

Sorry that you can’t see his face! Mommy is not yet ready for the reveal!

In the meantime I did cook up a storm for them…check out this clip!

And another thing that makes me extra happy is that I finally got my hair done!!  Some streaks, a trim and a few extensions to freshen up the whole look.  Feeling like a million bucks (and anyone who knows me knows…this is honestly the ONLY thing it really takes!).  Check out my before and after:

Before…
After…

This week I didn’t exercise or walk…my bad!  I have to honestly get into this ASAP!  Meanwhile…Here’s my Fabulous Friday List!

Friday’s Favourite Link Up Fashionista:
