I recently had to take a last minute road trip to Ottawa for a family emergency. I got the call from work, rushed home and had to pack as quickly as possible for both myself and Link. Flustered as I was, I managed to pack everything I needed without forgetting too many items. Having to pack for a trip is cumbersome enough, but packing for an unexpected last minute trip with less than an hour to spare….that’s just crazy! I came up with a few tips that can help anyone pack for an impromptu trip.
Happy New Years everyone! Now that we are well into 2016 let’s revisit those resolutions you made at the beginning of the year. You made them with good intentions to fully follow through and you jumped eagerly into making them happen. January is a good month for gyms and a bad month for retail stores as we attempt to recover from the excesses of the holidays. But what happens in February? After the thrill of “making a change”, some of us all too often slump back into old habits and abandon our resolutions. Some of us, but not you, right? With the help of a few easy tools and hacks, we are going to make 2016 the year we stick to our resolutions. Let’s start with our financial resolutions – because you know how fun those are.

I will be writing a two part series in where I discuss strategies in dressing appropriately for the winter weather without having to look like a sad sack of potatoes (no offense to sacks of potatoes). If you live in a similar climate as mine you’ll fully understand the trials and tribulations of varying temperatures and weather conditions on a daily basis. There’s a joke we like to recite around here and it goes: “ If you don’t like the weather just wait 5 minutes and step outside again”. This alludes to the times when our weather can possibly go from a full blown snow storm to freezing rain to hail and then some warm sunshine all in one day.
This first post will concentrate on some day looks and I’ve broken them up into three categories starting from the mildest to coldest of cold.
So you’ve bought your first Chanel and now it’s time to bring her home. But before you rip that pretty little box open and start to wear your new beauty there’s a few things to keep in mind.
