Family Style Friday – Late Winter’s Walk

Look of The Day - Shweta & Baby JWith the warm weather on Sunday, 10 degrees Celsius in Toronto, we couldn’t help but take a walk and enjoy the the fresh air.

Baby J got quite a few compliments on her coat that day, so that I thought it would be a great chance to start some Mommy and Toddler Style posts.  With Baby J now being 3 years old she has a lot of influence on her look everyday (as you can see) which often slows us down as we are going out the door and causes us to be inevitably late for appointments, events etc. But in the end if she’s happy with what she’s wearing then what’s the harm with being five minutes late 🙂

Baby J’s style sense is: “More is More”. She always grabs the hat, gloves, umbrella etc as we are running out the door.

My style sense is simple: “Never Let Em See How Tired You Are” hence the giant sunglasses.

Hopefully as the weather gets warmer and warmer, I will have more diverse outfit posts to share, because frankly right now, its all about the coats!

Until then. Remember what Shweta Says: “Never Let Em See How Tired You Are”

Manicure Monday – Birthday Party Nails

Manicure Monday - Party Nails

Birthday Nails – Black & Gold

Time to get my party dress on and celebrate because it’s my birthday and  I’m turning 30 (again)!!
No birthday outfit would be complete without some fun nails.
This look is very simple to achieve, but I did get them professionally done.
First, start with a solid black nail. (I prefer Shellac).
Then using a fine brush coat your tips in gold glitter polish.
Finally, using the same brush, stroke vertically about 2 thirds of the way down your nail.
Voila!! Pretty party girl nails!

Depending on the occasion, you could try this look with Pink & Gold, or Black & Silver… the options are really endless!

Shweta Says: Enjoy and have fun! Cuz it’s my birthday!!!

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?
