Finally. Ugh. I have waited and waited so long for an Iphone and finally took the plunge.Yes yes I know, a little late eh? I had 3 friends left on my BBM. 3. You guys, I love it. I got the Iphone 5 so I can't say if it's any better than the 4 or 4s. Either way, Iphones are fab machines.
You may have noticed on the left hand side of my page I now have Instagram! Feel free to follow me there as I will be posting photos daily of random stuff.
There is something about becoming an auntie. I'm not a mom, and I don't know how it feels to be a mom, but there's just something about being an auntie. Especially a new auntie to a new baby. Warms my heart doesn't even describe it. I guess you could say it's adding love to my heart.
Baby Kayla was born Thursday evening...
This is the new daddy. My brother. I've never seen him hold a baby before. He could't take his eyes of her. Even when I wanted to take a "family" photo. It was precious and totally fine.
We went to see them yesterday at home. It's amazing how fast babies change. Here is a couple photos from yesterday...
I can't wait to watch her grow. I can't wait to have tea parties with her and brush her hair and be the best Auntie CC ever.
Love love love her. This is going to be the best Christmas ever with my brand new niece and my growing precious nephew.

For as long as I can remember I've always loved plaid. Even in elementary school I would take my dads plaid shirts and wear them to school even though they were super huge on me. There's just something about the print that I love. Maybe it's because it brings me back to my younger years. I dunno.
Anyways, here's my take on dressing plaid up a bit. And tis the season to get some good use out of my hunters!
I apologize for the lack of posts, but this week has been crazy busy with a lot of Christmas cheer. Husband's work Christmas party is tonight. I'm looking forward to meeting all of his work mates that I hear so much about!

It's really amazing what happens to your mind after you get married. I though for sure I'd want to wait a least a couple of years after marriage to have a baby. But when I see my twin sister's little guy and my brother has a baby girl on the way (sissy-in-law is due on Monday!) and my very best friends little girls, I can't help but feel like the couple years is closing in. My husband is amazing with all babies and I call him the baby whisperer.
I feel like something has kind of clicked.
The only things keeping me back and this one might be kind of selfish is I still have my 30th birthday coming up in June. I wanted to go to Vegas. I've never been to Vegas. The more I think about it though, Vegas isn't going anywhere -but my years are.
I was also traumatized by what my sister went through during labour. Holy-smokes. Why would I ever want to endure that! And I know-I know, look was came after! But it still scared the bejesus out of me. Although she didn't have an epidural...
And money. You sure don't make a lot when you're on maternity leave!
Decisions decisions. This is the biggest decision ever. And I don't know how to make it. Some may say by reading this is maybe you aren't ready or you'll just know. Maybe I'm not ready right now, but will be 9 months down the road when the baby is ready? It's scarey to even think about. Gah
How did you mamma's know you were ready?
Enough of my rambling, I'm really digging faux fur type things right now, like this vest!

I went to check out the new Forever 21 on Robson Street the other day. Wow. It's the best Forever 21 I've ever been in. Stunning to say the least. I never thought I would be able to say that about a store. So clean and organized and NOT BUSY.
Anyways, as I was on my way to the checkout I saw this skirt and had to have it. I feel like a ballerina with her tutu. I wanted to winterize it a bit so I wore it with all black.
I hope you're having a great week so far and thanks for reading!
Thanks so much everyone for your comments on my last post!
This aztec print sweater finally arrived in the mail for me yesterday! I couldn't be happier with it. All day at work I felt like I was wrapped in a stylish, in-public-wearing blanket. I mean, who doesn't wear a blanket while there in public? Jus kidding. I don't. But if you do, maybe you should try this sweater instead.

It's that time of the year again. My hair goes dark! It's funny how this happens to me every year. I want bright highlights come spring and dark coliur in the winter. My fab friend and hair color-er aka a Colour Technician Jenn was kind enough to do this for me last night at Suki's on Granville Street. I love the way it turned out.
I've also been meaning to tell you about this Eye Cream from Kiehl's. You guys, this is the best eye cream I've ever tried. It's perfect for those tired mornings where your eyes feel like there going to pop out of your head (which is me every morning when I wake up at 5 am). You just dab a small amount on your under eye, emphasis on dab - not wipe and put your make up on over top. It's instant cooling is exactly what I need in the morning. It is $32.00 in Canada for a teeny tube, but it lasts a long time because you don't use much. And it's totally worth it.

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a really great week and an even better weekend!
As I was posting my jeans link I noticed that they are on sale again! Too bad I'm not shopping for myself until the New Year or I'd be getting myself some more colours!
My weekend plans will consist of my very first NFL football game! A whole bunch of us (we have an entire row) are heading down to Seattle tomorrow to watch the Seahawks and Jets play on Sunday. I can't wait to finally be in the stadium that I've seen on TV so much.

Thanks so much for all your sweet comments on my last post =)
If you're a Vancouver, Canada blogger you know that it's going to be increasingly difficult to take photos each day. We went back an hour this past weekend which means it gets darker earlier in the day.
So I thank you for your patience and hope you understand when I don't post every other day like I usually do. And I thank you in advance for still reading when the photos might not be so good.
I finally found an army jacket that I liked! I got this from Chicwish a couple days ago and unfortunately it came with a couple missing buttons (I was able to sew them back on). I wasn't too upset about it though because I loved the jacket It's not too warm, but not too thin either. It'll be perfect for layering.
Unfortunately, by the time I write this post it's sold out *sad face*. I just discovered Chicwish so I'm not sure if they get them back in stock or not.
I loveanything with pockets. When I saw this sweatshirt tunic had pockets I got even more excited about it. I rarely try anything on before I buy something so it was a nice surprise! It was also on sale for $19.99. Can't go wrong with that!
