A New Look....

Seasons Greetings y'all! I hope your holiday has been amazing so far:) Mine was pretty good! It was so good that I am now the official owner of the iPhone4!

Y'all know I've been wanting one for the longest time. Well I am so happy to have one of my very own, cause I'll be back to blogging on the regular. I know I've said this before but I'm so serious. In fact, this post was created entirely via iPhone! Technology truly can be amazing!

You also must have noticed The Creative Mixx's new look. I hope you like it:) I love the fact that this space looks a lot cleaner. There's a couple of tweaks that I'll be making over the next couple of days. Not all of my links are working, so I'll be fixing that up:)

Now I've got to give another shout out to a cool blog called Textstyles. I mentioned this blog a few posts ago. I was spreading the news about a wicked contest she had going on "12 days of Christmas",(which ended being the 12 gifts of Christmas). Well, I entered the first day for the chance to win a lovely calendar by Kid Icarius calendar and I WON!!! Can't wait to get this in the mail:)

Check This Out!

It's December 13th and I am practically finished my Christmas shopping!!! This is so unlike me, as I usually get everything done minutes before the big day. Instead, I had an amazing shopping day with my fab friend "G".

Shopping during the holidays always gets me into the "goiiving" mood and wanted to offer a giveaway on The Creative Mixx. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to offer one:(

The good news is that I've located two really cool contests (run by some pretty wicked bloggers) and I'd like to share them with you.

Today I entered Throw It In Your Bag's Christmas Giveaway. I gasped when I saw what was up for grabs and quickly entered in every way possible.

Click HERE to get all the contest details to win THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Over at, today began the "12 days of Christmas giveaway" where everyday, (including weekends) 1 item will be given away.

You have a chance of winning a "hot pick" by Toronto and Canadian designers/brands.

Their first giveaway is a hand Printed limited edition 2011 calendar from Kid Icarus.

This Got Me Excited!

Happy Monday y'all! Hope you had a fabulous week-end! I had a pretty relaxing one, but not entirely uneventful. I wasn't couped up in the house for the entire week-end. I actually met up with my friend Vanessa for some Vintage Shopping at Fashion Central! We were there specifically to see the Vintage Pop-Up Shop. For those who have been following me for a while, know by now that I adore vintage. So I was super excited to go! I took some cool photos and will do an official recap tomorrow! (I've got other things to post too, like a photo of the most beautiful leather bound notebook given to me by my friend Vanessa and a photo of the vintage telephone table that I bought today).

But tonight, an ever-so talented Stylist (who happens to be a friend of mine) exposed her new website for her facebook fam, so I had to share! It's such a beautiful site showcasing her talented "styling" that I fellt you would appreciate her talent too. You've seen the works of Lindsay Sutton on The Creative Mixx before. She was one of the creative masterminds behind Fox Sparrow Boutique.

So, I am proud to introduce you to

Here's some of the loveliness that you can expect to see!

Official Launch of DADA Belts....

I just heard about the launch of DADA Belts today from a very close and dear friend. When I got the Facebook invite to "like" them, I figured "why not?" I like belts (although I don't own very many), but I do think its important to own a really good one.

After viewing their cool video (which shows you how a DADA belt is made and what it looks like), I am hooked.

Dada Belts from Brett Ferster on Vimeo.

I love the fact that they make custom belts (with a modern feel) for men and women, but use old school methods. Everything is hand-cut or sewn on a 101 year old sewing machine. Wowsers! Who does that in this day an age?

Well, if you want to learn more about them or want to order a custom made DADA belt of your very own then visit their website:

Ordering your very own DADA belt has 5 simple steps:

1. Choose your leather
2. Choose your stitching colour
3. Choose your hardware
4. Choose your end strap shape
5. Enter your belt measurements
