Snapshot Saturday, 24 June 2017

Snapshot Saturday, the day where you get to see the things that I see! I like to share the little things because that is what makes us who we are and what makes the world go around. I’m also guessing (and hoping) that you are reading this blog because you have at least a tiny bit of interest in what I’m up, and want to share what you’re up to, too. Today is a little bit of good and a little bit of less good…

Brighton Crossbody, Style File Friday

If you are anything like me, or live anywhere like Winnipeg, you may be slightly hard on your handbags. My holy grail handbags are doing well, but my other bags get beat up after a while. With how cold Winnipeg is (-45°C in the winter, anyone??) and being on the go a lot of the time, I seem to go through purses faster than I would like. However, I recently received the perfect crossbody for me, and it’s more durable than I think most cars are these days. If you need something to stand up to unknown forces, read on!

Seattle Public Library, Travel Thursday

The Seattle Public Library is a quite a dominating building, which is impressive given that it is surrounded by several skyscrapers. Although it is only 11 stories, compared to the seventy or more around it, it’s a very cool and modern building that is worth a visit if you are in Seattle! It’s free to enter, it’s close to the wharf and downtown shopping, and it’s accessible by public transportation. Time to head to the library!

Kate Spade Fashionably Late 2018 Planner Review

As my Kate Spade 2017 planner review is still one of my most popular posts, I decided that I would do a 2018 update when my new planner arrived. It may not seem like it but planners are fairly personal objects for people. For those who have jumped into the world of planners, you have different layouts, different styles, bullet journaling, notations, decorations, designers, you name it. Now that Kate Spade is widely producing and selling their planners, it has become one of the most popular brands! Every year they are slightly different and the 2018 models are fantastic…

Blogger Fitness Challenge, Summer 2017

The main aspect of blogging that I am still here for is the community. So, when I sat down and thought about the fact that my blogging might be cutting down on my exercise/ fitness time, I figured that there may be other bloggers who feel the same way. I could have simply written this down in a notebook but I figured that I would share this if anyone else is interested!

Longchamp Le Pliage Review, Style File Friday

If you remember my Style To-Do List from April, you will recall that I had a Longchamp tote on it! Because I travel as much as I do, I knew that it would be solid investment (that I have been eyeing up for years). Everyone swears by them but I debated for the better part of two years if it would be worth it to invest that much in a simple canvas tote bag. I finally decided to go through it as that much time spent thinking on it has to mean something. Now that I’ve spent some time with it, I’m sharing my thoughts and review!

 Seattle Mariners Game, Travel Thursday

My family (like a lot of Canadian families) are huge hockey fans. We watch the season from the draft to the last playoff game, and sprinkle in the World Junior’s, Olympics, and World Championships. M’s family are just into baseball, and while they are Yankees fans, now that they live in Seattle are also cheering for the Mariners. The Mariners might not be the best team in the league but they are always fun to watch and it’s a fun ballpark to spend the evening in. I have to say, this was the most exciting baseball game that I’ve ever been to!
