It never fails. Fall comes and I’m so excited about the change in weather and can’t wait to show you my fall outfits and then I remember how early it gets dark! Indoor pictures. So much more difficult! I love being able to wear fall colours and sweaters and boots though and I actually don’t even mind that it gets dark earlier. I like going out for supper after the sun sets. I know I’m weird. I’ve been told so a million times! It’s October so the breast cancer extensions are in — #survivor — and I’ve dyed the rest a deep purple though its hard to see in the pictures. It’s still quite warm here in the Northeast so I haven’t been able to break out the sweaters yet, but at least I’m in long flowing sleeves and long pants. Enjoy!
I can’t tell you how excited I was when I received an invite to the “Fall For Free People” event at Bloomingdale’s in Bridgewater this past weekend. Free People and Bloomingdale’s — these are a few of my favourite things! It was also a Fashionable Fundraiser which was in support of amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to ending the global AIDS epidemic through innovative research. Shopping for a good cause is always a good thing and Bloomingdale’s pledges to make a donation of $75,000 to amfAR as part of the event. There was so much going on from refreshments, to a sketch artist who was drawing amazing fashion sketches of the shoppers and of course I was assisted by my favourite Bloomingdale’s stylist ever. He’s amazing and is always there as my partner in shopping crime! It was so much fun to meet all the great people from Bloomingdale’s and have the opportunity to blog the event. Coincidentally this past Sunday was three years from when I had my mastectomy (hence the pink outfit) so being able to be there and have fun was awesome. Even Lubi got in on the action! Thanks Bloomies!
goo.ey – Design-led phone cases inspired by art and fashion. goo.ey cases stick to glass and mirror so you can enjoy your device hands free.
I was so excited to receive this case. First of all — it’s sparkly. Second of all — it’s pink. Breast cancer survivor — must have pink. This particular case is from the Phoebe Lettice collection but they have many amazing designer collections to choose from. The coolest thing is that instead of taking a selfie with your arm swinging in the breeze or holding a stick in front of you it sticks to glass so you’re hand’s free! You can then set the timer while you position yourself properly or, if you have an Apple Watch you can control your camera with that and hit the button when you’re ready.
I love that you can take a whole body selfie and get all sorts of different outfit angles. I do have to admit that I was terrified to hang my phone on a mirror or window, but it didn’t fall! It really sticks! Don’t let the name deceive you. You’re not actually walking around with a sticky gooey phone case. It’s perfectly smooth but the material also keeps it from slipping around too much if you rest it on your desk or a table. Love it!
Here are some shots I took playing around with my new goo.ey case. Enjoy!
I feel like I sound like an advertisement for Free People. It’s bordering on obsession. I can’t help how much I love everything by them! This tank is a new and super reasonable addition to their lineup. I restrained myself and bought only one colour. See… I can do it. They also have the best pretty, seamless and comfortable intimates. I had no idea! How neat is this showing out the back of the tank? It also doesn’t hurt after all of the breast cancer surgeries. And for a chilly spring evening this cocoon wrap does the trick without overheating. Perfect.
