I Wish I Was...

As a part of my blog, I'm going to try and incorporate monthly features.  My first feature that I am adding to my blog is "I Wish I Was".  I Wish I Was will be an indulgance into people who I really admire at a certain time in my life.  The reason for admiration could be an experience they went through, a fashion that they are wearing that I want to include in my wardrobe or just an overall love for what the person exudes. 

My first I Wish I Was is ... Kate Middleton!

Kate Middleton is gorgeous!  Her style is classic and simple - I love that!  She also knows what looks work on her: tailored jackets, cozy sweaters, dresses with clean lines, neutral & classic colors... and she maintains a very natural makeup & hair routine.

She recently got engaged to Prince William and looks so happy (I mean who wouldn't be)!  She seems to be handling the press and scrutiny really well.  More updates on Ms. Middleton when becomes a princess on April 29th, 2011.  I'm dying to see which designer she selects to design her gown.

And you got to love someone that can pull off all the fabulous hats the royals wear!

I Have a Blog!

Hi ... and welcome to my blog!  Yeah, I finally have a blog and a place to express my inner thoughts & share things I love.  I have established a blog so that I can have a creative outlet to express my love of all things: fashion, beauty, home & food!

During the past year or so, I have become fascinated & a tad obessed with blogs.  I knew I became obessed with blogs since: (a) the word 'blog' has been added to my daily vocabulary (b) when I reference my favourite bloggers to friends and lastly (c) when just about anyone constantly asks "what have you been doing on that darn laptop for the past 2 hours"? 

You can pretty much find anything on a blog and that's what I love about the blogging community.  If there is something you are researching to purchase and you just want to see how it looks or you want reviews, I know I'll be able to find it on a blog.  Plus, I have found most bloggers to be very receptive when you have a question and/or are looking for advice.

To get to know me a bit I have put together a list of Ten Tiny Things about me and what you can probably expect from my blog!

·         I need to sign up for OA [Organizational Anonymous]
·         I am NOT a vegetarian - I love meat!
·         I love the serenity of a Saturday morning when it’s just me, my laptop and a cup of coffee
·         Yoga keeps my mind & body sane
·         I love to-do lists
·         I wish I studied typography
·         I never leave home without my blackberry, a granola bar and blush!
·         Cupcakes are a girls best friend
·         I have traveled to every province in Canada
·         I love to read

Now, before I go crazy with my new found love of blogging I must warn you ... I am not the best writer.  I didn't study journalism, English wasn't my best subject at school and all my essays began with "In today's society ..." so I will try my best to share my thoughts, feelings and passions with you as best as I can. 

I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I know I will enjoy writing it!
