-27 is the HIGH for Today

Yep you've read the blog title correctly.  The high for today in Calgary, Alberta is a whopping -27 degrees celsius.

Let's just say it's freakin cold!

My 1 hour commute to work this morning was slow and steady. By the time I parked, my car had finally started to warm up.

On a day like this, one of the few items that would make it bearable when outside are Moon Boots.

I personally think they look ridiculous. Mainly these styles.....

And even their accessories are a bit ridiculous. I am not feeling this...

But besides all the ridiculousness, I went on an internet mission this morning. Mainly to see if I could find at least one pair of Moon Boots that I like. Guess what? I found not 1 but  2:)

Here are my faves

Great Chunky Scarves made in Calgary

Well the temperatures haven't risen here in Calgary, meaning the winter air is still quite bitter.  I've wrapped my neck with a flimsy scarf over the passed couple of days, which made me realize something....

How in the world have I survived living in Calgary WITHOUT a chunky scarf to keep me warm???

Trust me, I am in  a state of shock myself! I don't "do" hats, but scarves are an absolute "winter must have".

I'm on the hunt for a warm, yet interesting scarf to carry me through the rest of winter, (which could last another 2 months or 4).

Knittles (they've been featured on The Creative Mixx a few times)


Bubblegum Sass (We used to work together!)

Tangled Stitch

Hipband (created by a dear friend of mind)

I'll be making a decision soon.

Stay tuned for an upcoming post.....

My Fave Winter Layered Looks

The past few days in Calgary have been super warm which means that we are experiencing a Chinook (a warm dry wind blowing down the eastern slopes of the Rockies).

It's a great break from the harsh temperatures that we've had to bear last week....

So I'm in a dress today. Yay!!!

However, I always have to remind myself that as quickly as Chinooks come they go. I'll be wearing layered winter looks in no time, (my weather app says Sunday).

Here are my fave looks online - by clicking on the image, you'll be taken to the source.

 P.S. Love that the fur vest is "faux fur"

Just heard about these kats today and I am feelin their vibe....

A Drum for Beats....

Last year, I planned on buying an African drum for two reasons.  First,  I was hoping to get into drumming and second, I figured it would be a great addition to my home decor....

Sadly, I didn't get one:(

But, it looks like I may get one for 2013 thanks to  Bali & Beyond!

I've got my eye on this one right there..

Bali & Beyond is Moving from Their Main Floor store in TD Square (Calgary, AB).

Gold, Gold, Gold!

Happy New Year everyone!

I don't really do the "resolutions thing" but  I have decided to practice the following for 2013

Do what you say you're going to do 

I am officially doing that today.....

In November  I posted about gold jewelry ( and how I'd like to incorporate it into my wardrobe. Well, I am officially doing that as we speak. 

I'm rocking a:
- gold toned watch with brown leather band
- gold bracelet
- gold and black earrings
- gold ring (with blue stone) 

FYI peeps...I am on the hunt for quality gold rings without breaking the bank.....

With a quick search on Etsy, I discovered illuminance - organic hand- formed jewelry   

Here are my faves! Can't wait to make a purchase:)
