Happy New Year!

This really has been one of the toughest years for me that I can remember, for so many reasons & too many to list.  In order to move forward, you have to look back, let go, stay strong, worry less, dance more, stay positive & definitely love often...
...so I just want to say THANK YOU for all the lessons 2013 and as I look forward to 2014, there are no 'resolutions' in my head, just a whole lot of "I AM READY!"                                                                                   
 Happy New Year & all the best to everyone!

Weekend Look

FALL fashion is probably one of my favorite seasons for dressing & this year it's so fun!  Look for plaid, quilting, leather (vegan (faux) if you can), jewels, burgundy, reds, whites, textures & metallics.

Sunday & Pretty in Pink

I've been obsessed with pastel pink for quite some time now.  It's probably the reason I made it a colour you can choose for a variety of items in my Jac&Jil shop on Etsy.  With all the Royal Baby buzz lately, and all things British, I'm also obsessing over a little thing called "High Tea"...why not have one of your own? Here's my version of a Sunday afternoon with good friends for High Tea, and maybe a few ideas you may want to add...

Things I'm Talking About - Orange!

Don't be afraid!  Orange is everywhere, and instead of running from it, embrace it!  Whether it's fashion, beauty, home decor, indoors, outdoors, light, bright, dark, barely there...here's a few ways you can incorporate this fresh colour into your life.  

Here's why I love this:

Instantly adds colour to any space, adds a modern feel & can easily be changed! 

                 Here's why I love this:

Adds a fun tropical feel to any outdoor dinner party, or elegant touch for that dinner for two with it's scalloped edge.  These are also made of melamine so they won't break! 

Here's why I love this:

This orange clamp on style lamp, swivels, gives GREAT task lighting and can be moved from room to room!   It also frees up more space on a shelf or desk! 

Here's why I love this:

Studs are in and why not have them with a punch of colour!  Paired with olive, black or teal...
...now that's what I call arm candy!  
The best part?  It's under $10! 

Here's why I love this:

It's right on trend with the geometric print, subtle colours, dress it up or use as a cover for your bathing suit at the beach!   What!! 

Here's why I love this:

New from Maybelline is their Colour Sensational® Vivids collection.  "Vibrant Mandarin 885" can be worn on any skin colour/tone and with nourishing honey nectar, it's actually good for your lips!   I personally have this and love love love it!

Series: It's A Tween's World-One Dress, Two Looks!

So the tween in my world, is having a formal dance on Friday, so the madness of shopping for a dress and accessories began yesterday, because living in a town of only 17,000 (plus), doesn't give you a lot of shopping choices for these types of things.  As much as I try to shop local for most things, there are exceptions.  So off we went to Downtown Vancouver and after trying on about 10 dresses, she fell in love with one from Topshop.  

I must say, it's a pretty spectacular dress that looks fabulous on her, and the bonus?  She can wear it two ways. Yay!!  

Here's two ways to wear this dress:

1. Dress
2. Ring
5. Clutch

1. Dress
2. Jacket
4. Boots
5. Tote

In the end, she got a dress she loves, the clutch from Aldo, ring from Forever21 and earrings also from Forever21.  She is borrowing my white strappy wedges (similar to the ones posted minus the silver).  Not sure if it's a good thing that we have the same size feet?  Do you have a piece you wear two ways?
