Enjoying the snow

Ange and I enjoying the snow at Nozawa

I had to write at least one post about my time in Japan and it actually tied in nicely with one (ok maybe a few) of my new purchases. Back when I lived in Canada I discovered and fell in love with Forever 21. I had been told about it from Superficial Sadie’s creator but it wasn’t until I saw it that I found the appeal. I then introduced Ange to Forever 21 when she moved to Canada and also fell in love with this store.

Long story short, Tokyo had a Forever 21 and much to the horror of poor Andrew, Ange and I ran to the five floors. An hour later and several purchases down, he was able to pull us out of the store, remaining us we were here for snowboarding not shopping!

As I’ve mentioned before I want to grow this blog to include other people and not just myself, so I convinced Ange to have some photos with me while we were sightseeing at the Imperial Palace. It also includes some of our new purchases.

Ange & I

I was wearing:

  • new mustard jacket from Forever 21
  • new white sequin shoulder jumper, from Forever 21
  • Ange’s skirt (Thanks! 😉 ) also from Forever 21
  • Timberland snow boots (I know there is no snow in Tokyo, but it saved me having to overpack!) 

Ange was wearing:

Thanks for stopping by!

Celebrating in Japan

Celebrating in Japan with Ange

Well I’m back… and it really was tough, to a) come home and b) start back at work!

I thought I’d write my first post by saying Happy New Year and hope that you have all had a wonderful start to 2013. I’m very excited to see new followers and hope you keep enjoying the blog in 2013.

This year I plan on posting not only my own style but that of people I know or people that give me inspiration. As well as friend’s favourite pieces and bargains they find. So please don’t hesitate to send me an email about your style!

My highlight from last year would have to be participating in Black Out, trying out something very different. I intend on many more experiments this year. Thanks Mon from Little Miss Mon Bon for that one!

These photos are a few of my favourites from last year (Even though I only really got into blogging late October!)

Oh Canada….

With the cold weather upon us it makes me think of our time living in Canada. Seven amazing months living in the beautiful snow and magical surrounds. It felt like you were waking up staring at a painting everyday.

We lived in a place called Banff and it was breathe-taking. So incredible and always made you smile, no matter how cold it was… and it did get cold!

When  you’re surrounded by snow though, it’s allowed to be cold, and doesn’t feel like this winter weather we have here in ‘four seasons in a day, Geelong!’

Here are some memories….

Our very first day in beautiful Banff… before the snow started to fall….

This was the view from our front door, living on the ski hill…

Lake Louise in April…water is no longer frozen.

Banff Ave at Night…. this is in spring… so most of the snow has melted.

Walking down Banff Ave in the middle of winter, this is our friend Miranda, affectionately known as Dora!

 Spring riding…. no jackets needed!

I think I need to go back….
