Spring Brights

It’s amazing how what you are wearing can really set your mood for the day. I do a lot of ‘research’ for this blog, and have really noticed a trend in bright colours as we get closer and closer to spring. These are some of my favourites. What I particularly love about them is that they are the pop of colour your outfit needs to give it that happy, spring-y edge, but when styled with basics, they aren’t overpowering. What are your spring must-haves for your closet??????

Happy Wednesday Friends!!!



Pugs and Sequins

Pugs and Sequins
To finish of the work week, I decided to put together a fun little ensemble that combined two of my favourite wardrobe items: sequins & pugs. The red sequins on their own can be a bit showgirl, but I felt the balance of my fun, pug muscle-tee and my ‘all business’ blazer created the perfect mix that wasn’t too over the top to rock at work. The Donald did have some delightful commentary on this outfit, but given that it was less-than-blog-friendly, I’ll have to e-mail it to you separately if you are interested in knowing.  :)
Have a safe and fabulous weekend Friends!!!

Tulle on Tuesday

Tulle on Tuesday

This gem of a tulle skirt arrived on my desk on Monday and I knew exactly how I wanted to style it to wear to work the next day. Worn as a high-waisted skirt, the combination of the belt and shoes tied the outfit together despite the contrast of the tulle and plaid combo. Just be prepared to be razzed for dressing like a ‘farming ballerina’ if you wear this little number to your corporate job. ;)
Happy Wednesday Friends!! :)

Sequins for Spring

Sequins for Spring
Last week we had beautiful weather so I decided to really push the envelope with my work apparel and wear open-toe shoes and some vibrant coral coloured skimmer pants. I am obsessed with my chambray shirt, so it was a natural choice when I needed a piece to layer under my sequin tee from J Crew. What kinds of outfits are you putting together to bring in spring?

Fun with Fun Fur

Fun with Fun Fur
They say that you can categorize the way women dress in two ways: women who dress for men and women who dress for women. Last week, I wore this outfit to work and it was immediately apparent which category I fall into. Within the span of a half hour, the men in my office had dished out about a dozen quick witted comments regarding the ‘road kill’ on my back or the ‘official Game of Thrones’ merchandise I was wearing. Despite their jeering, I will stand by the fact that this outfit was nothing short of fabulous. And the ladies in my office will stand behind me on this one!!! haha.
A few differences between this posting and the reality: my vest was from Modcloth, but alas it is sold out, and my dress was picked up from Club Monaco a couple of months back on super sale.
The entire look was pulled together with a high bun and a lot of sass. Oh yeah…I said sass…..now you’re mocking me aren’t you?!?! ;)
Happy Tuesday.

Gorgeous Mommy Inspiration Look


I haven’t ever done a post like this, but stumbled across this picture of Miranda Kerr and her little nugget and couldn’t resist.

Now I would like to say that every time I leave the house with Nugget on my hip, that I look like this but the true picture is a smidge more runaway than runway. :) That being said, I figured I could at least give it the ‘ol’ college try’ (as the Donald likes to say). So here it is: Two Pugs and A Nugget’s Gorgeous Mommy Look!

Tuesday Workwear

Tuesday Workwear
I love pencil skirts for work. I am obsessed with colourful pencil skirts. The one I wore to work on Tuesday is a cheapy from Forever 21, which I also own in hot pink. This shade of blue is perfect for work because it’s that bit of colour that my outfit needs to keep me from looking too dowdy….and I suppose the studded belt doesn’t scream librarian either. ;)
Happy Tuesday friends.

T-Shirts and Blazers

T-Shirts and Blazers
Whenever I am in a rush to get out the door in the morning, my go-to outfit is a t-shirt and blazer paired with skinny pants and cute heels. Not only are there about a dozen combinations in my closet at any given moment, but I can simply throw off the blazer when I get home from work and have a fairly comfy, Nugget-friendly outfit. Here are four examples of what I have worn in the past month or so. I normally spruce these up with either a cute, chunky necklace or a scarf. What are your go-to outfits for work?
Happy Friday friends. :)

Two Pugs and a Nugget Love Products

Happy Tuesday friends!!!!

I thought it might be fun to share some of my absolute favourite, must-have beauty products with you.

I have tended to be a bit of a product slut in the past….bouncing from one product to the other, never seeing a product through to the end of it’s bottle. So believe-you-me, I have been around the block and seen a lot of lotions, toners and the like. These are the things that I have finally settled on as being the products worth the time and effort to use.

Skincare Products

Shockingly this post is not sponsored by Clinique, but I have to say that I do love the gentleness of their skin care line. (1) Clinique Mild Facial Cleanser (2) Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion/Toner (3) Clinique Daily Moisturizing Lotion (4) Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask (5) Estee Lauder Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator (6) Kiehl’s Microdermabrasion Scrub (7) LaRoche-Posay Effaclar Serum

Hair Care

Hair Products

When it comes to hair care, I really believe that less is more. The more product iIput in my hair, the heavier and more weighed down it gets. I swear by the Bumble and Bumble Mending line. It’s a bit pricey, but worth EVERY penny. My hair has never looked healthier.


Make up products

(1) Laura Mercier Mineral Powder (2) Fresh Sugar Lipbalm (3) Dior Show Mascara (4) Maybeline Dream Bouncy Blush (5) Benefit Boi-ing Concealer (6) Essie Nail Polish in Fifth Avenue (7) Narcisco Rodriguez Perfume (8) Stila Light Eyeshadow Kit (9) Almay Eyleiner (10) Maybeline Baby Lips Lip Balm (11) MAC Highlighter

What are your absolute ‘can’t live without’ products????
