Pixie Mood Purse Review

I’m a mom. I’m a toddler mom. I have a gorgeous designer diaper bag like many of you. Except, I rarely use it.
I pretty much stopped using designer diaper bag when Baby J was 8 months old because I found it was just too heavy and bulky and took up all the space in her stroller basket and just did not fit my small shoulders lifestyle.
Adamant to not “that mom” who carries a giant diaper bag I started looking for affordable handbags which could do double duty as a purse for me and a bag for Baby J.

I recently discovered Pixie Mood and found the perfect bag to fit my needs!

Manicure Monday – Winter Nails

After the incredible response I received on my blog and in person over my holiday nails, which I blogged about here,  I thought I should share my latest cute manicure with you. I was inspired by all of the snow and ice around us, however this manicure could also be festive if you celebrate Hannukah or if you just love the colour blue. I had this professionally done at my local nail salon;  the colour is OPI Yodel Me on My Cell from their Swiss 2010 collection with white french tips.

What do you think? Cute or Cheesy?

Any suggestions on what I should do with my nails next time?

Kimye’s Having a Baby – And I don’t care

Hear Ye, Hear Ye!!! Kimye is having a baby and I don’t care!

I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care!

However, I am completely irritated because I know the next six months are going to involve daily news articles about the baby to be. Photo’s of Kim Kardashians baby bump will dominate every entertainment news feed. Journalists will make up headlines like:

  • Kim’s workout regime while pregnant
  • Kim & Kanye planning a wedding before baby makes 3!
  • Kim’s having twins!

And it is going to be longest six months ever for those of us who couldn’t care less! I mean I’m as happy for Kim as I am for any pregnant stranger, but I really don’t need a play by play. I don’t want to know what Kim’s craving while pregnant, I don’t care if she is going to start a maternity line or how much she is going to spend on her nursery.

I DON’T CARE!

And frankly I find the media’s obsession with pregnant celebrities to be quite scary. As some readers of my blog know, I suffered two stillbirths during the second trimester of pregnancy and other celebs have had similar experiences. I can’t even imagine the pain of going through that under the public eye. I didn’t mean for this post to get serious… But REALLY! ENOUGH! Why are celebs like Kanye (who has a big mouth I know) announcing their pregnancy so early? I mean there was no need! Isn’t Kim afraid of “evil eye”?

Yes, I’m ranting and raving.. but I’ve HAD IT! I’m sick of celebs using pregnancy to keep themselves in the headlines. And I’m sick of headlines being dominated by pregnancy. And before anyone suggests it… no I”m NOT jealous at all. Just annoyed.

So listen up celebs! Listen to what Shweta Says: “There is no need to announce you’re pregnancy until you are so huge that you can no longer see your feet.  Enjoy your moment with your loved ones and respect your privacy. Trust me”.

RANT OVER!

METEORS ARE COMING!!!!!

Image

I was reading through other Blogger’s New Year resolution posts and feeling like a loser. I had no inspiration. How can I make 2013 better? How can I make myself better?

I don’t need to lose weight; I just started a great new job 4 months ago; blessed to have great friends and family. So what should i resolve? Cook more? Bake more? Craft more? Please…. why set myself up for failure.

But then I read the Daily Post challenge:

“Tell us about the three things you’d most like to change about your life, and make a bold, I-don’t-care-who-knows-it-because-there’s-a-meteor-a-comin’ assertion to the world that you are going to get these changes made. And that you’ll have at least started making them happen by March. When, erm, you’re probably going to wind up as dust.”

So here goes!  if I’m threatened by the thoughts of meteors coming, these would be my three resolutions.

1) Freedom 45. I would like to be mortgage free by the age of 45. And so in the next 3 months I need to set a proper plan and payment schedule to make this happen.

2) Enjoy the outdoors. I live in a wonderful part of Toronto, and yet I don’t take enough advantage of the beauty all around me. Time to bundle up and get outside!

3) More “Quality Time” with my gorgeous husband (if you know what i mean).

So dear readers, I’m hoping you will hold me to my goals. Will check in at the end of March to let you know how I did.

Until then… from my family to yours. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
