It's been one heck of a busy week. We played baseball (we're part of a sport and social club here in London, Ontario) on Wednesday. I really enjoyed our team and I wasn't half bad at baseball either! Next week is ultimate frisbee, good thing I've been practising all summer at the cottage. 

Yesterday I went to a Yoga Class. When you work from home, it was a great thing to get up and do over the lunch hour (not to mention it's a 4 minute walk from my apartment). I'm sore today, so it was definitely a challenging class ( that, or I'm just out of shape since the summer?) I also went to a London camera club last night. Maybe it was the night I chose... but it was rather tedious and boring. I'll give it one more shot I suppose. I get two guests passes and then I have to decide whether to join up or not.

So... yes I've been trying out many different things here in our new city. Has anyone ever moved to a new city? What do you suggest doing or signing up for to keep busy and meet some people? 

 Yippee! It's FRy-eye-Dee eh. 
Happy weekend everyone.

Autumn Winds
The necklace above is made from an old vintage brooch. I love the leaf design. It is the perfect necklace for the fall. Check it out in my online shop
Jack Skellington
If you love Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, you'll love this bracelet. Doesn't it remind you so much of this classic movie? Jack and Sally. Romance. Click here to see it in my shop.

Snow Storm
 Favourite things to do in the winter cuddle up by the fire with some hot cocoa. Do it fashionably with this Snow Storm necklace. So beautiful, so elegant, so of all the vintage brooch as the pendant. Click here to view it in my shop

mustard fall jackets

What I wore
Rings: Gifts, flea markets
Jacket: Club Monaco
Skirt: Winners
Scarf: Clothing Swap
Sweater: Winners
AH! I'm back to the ol' curly hair. It's fun having straight hair for a few days. Do you have a hair style you only do once in a blue moon that changes your look so drastically that sometimes people don't recognize you? ha 

I've been trying to scout out areas around my new place in London, Ontario, of where I can shoot my outfits, and jewellery from my shop come the winter months! London, Ontario is RIGHT in the snow belt...meaning a TON of snow. I won't be able to take photos outside as easily as I did last winter when I was out in Vancouver. I hope I don't freeze a chilly freeze this winter! 

 Unfortunately you can't see my jewellery due to the fact that it was too cold. Check it out in my online shop by clicking here.

I'm in love with this mustard jacket. As most of you know mustard is my favourite colour. I almost had my mom convinced to paint the colours of the cottage mustard grey and white. Trust me...they all go fantastic together in a room. Check out the bedroom below. I just LOVE it. What's your favourite colour palette?

This weekend was filled with Tristan's birthday, he turned a quarter century, a family friend's beautiful wedding, home cooked delicious meals, and sunday funday football with friends. It was a pretty great weekend. 

We are headed back to London, ON today. I have SO much work to do this week with Hattitude. Christmas is coming...VERY soon, it's starting to make me excited and nervous. It's one of my busiest times of the year with Hattitude Jewellery. I need to update the ol' website with all my new designs. My new studio is finally set up in London, ON so it'll be fun to finally put to use the beautiful light that comes streaming in! 

Have you all been feeling this FREEZING cold weather? Aye yai yai. I am bringing my long underwear back from Caledon to London, ON to layer up. It's just so darn chilly! 
Have a great Tuesday.

P.S. If you want to see a melt at the knees, swoon in your heart, hollywoodesque looking couple on their wedding day, check out the video below.

reading nook

Here's a little peek into our reading nook. It's one of my favourite places to be in our apartment. Who wouldn't want to be surrounded by DIY fashion, and costume jewellery books? 

Tomorrow is one of my lovely family child hood friend's wedding. I cannot wait to be apart of her special day. They have been working so hard on this wedding, I just know it's going to be out of this world. Wishing everyone a happy wedding weekend!
