It’s hard to believe that Christmas is a month away today.  How did that happen?  This year I am planning on doing some cute little DIY prezzies and Christmas baking.  I am also working on some fun new posts for the holiday season, sharing some products I’m loving, and my Little Madelyn may even be making an appearance in a post or two.

I have officially come to the end of all the event planning I have had going on over the last couple of months.  LOVE planning events and parties (especially when one includes my Baby Girl’s first Birthday); but really appreciate when it all comes to an end and I have a bit more down time.  I spent the weekend with my two loves, just relaxing and doing a couple of fun outings.  Comfort was essential and so were these boots.

Love Winter is a Canadian company on a mission to make us fall in love with winter.  They want people to get outside and enjoy!  A perfect message for this time of year.  There is nothing I love more then getting all bundled and cozy and going for a family walk after dinner to check out all the Christmas lights in the neighbourhood.

The Love Winter boots are actually a modern version of a traditional Russian Valenki boots.  They are designed to keep you warm even during the coldest winter days.  My favourite feature is that they have interchangeable galoshes.  You can stick with a classic colour like I did or switch it up with bright pink, blue, or yellow!  The galoshes easily slip off the boot so you can go from outdoor boot to indoor slipper.  Love that!

Things have been craaaaazy lately.  Good crazy, but crazy.  I’ve been pouring myself into party and event planning.  This past weekend was my Baby Girl’s 1st birthday.  The party was so much fun!   I also have a HUGE client event happening this week, so with that comes the anxious excitement that I love.  Needless to say, this Lady is tired.  When I’m tired, all I want to do is wrap myself up in something delicious.  Lately that delicious has been my new J.Vansuch Studio scarf.  It’s luxe, cozy, and goes with everything.

All the designs of these scarves are limited edition prints.  Julie Vansuch’s textiles are made in Brooklyn, New York and Como, Italy and are all natural fibers such as silk, wool, and cashmere.  These are a definite must to add to your Christmas wish list.  Each scarf comes packaged in a beautiful signature gift box so they are easy to give…or receive.

Ladies, being stylish doesn’t mean you are forever in stilettos and rocking a red lip morning, noon, and night.  Some days a gal needs a classic jersey dress, cozy sweater, cute flats, with a few easy accessories thrown in.  When I’m running around with my Baby Girl I choose to be practical, but of course practical can still be cute.   Embrace your basics, and live your day to day life cutely comfortable.

If  you want to stock up on some amazing basics (and other adorable things), then head on over to GetPlenty.com  All my lovely readers can get  25% off the entire store including the sale section until the end of November (one time use per customer).  Use my shopping code JEN25. #LocalLove

 

Consigning has become a popular trend out of necessity.  Buying new all the time is not only expensive but can be wasteful. In the day and age of over consumption, buying pre-used items is the ultimate way to recycle through reselling.  For all you Vancouver Mommies, there is now a one stop shop for you to stock up on all your baby, kid, and maternity needs.

Just Between Friends is the leading infant, children and maternity consignment sales event. They are all about families helping other families! They recycle the items your kids no longer need by re-selling the clothing, toys, furniture, and equipment that kids have outgrown. This means huge savings for families who love bargains! Items at the JBF sale are inspected for quality and meet all Health Canada safety regulations. Parents can find designer and boutique brands priced at 50-90% off retail. It is a great opportunity to support the wonderful moms and parents of the community, so get involved! Unsold items benefit our local charities Aunt Leah’s Place, Crabtree Corner and BabyGoRound. Families looking to recycle items your kids have outgrown, it’s not too late to sign up and consign! Sell your items and earn up to 70% cash, just in time for the holidays.

Photos borrowed from my obsession that is Pinterest

I feel like I have been launched into Fall and all the coziness that comes with the cooler weather.  November is a super fun and kinda crazy busy month for me.  I’m co-organizing a major client event, planning my Baby Girl’s first birthday, plus working, and all the regular craziness that is my life.  This past week, I’ve had a sick baby on my hands, which means less sleep for everyone in our house, so the coffee is just on constant refill around here.  With the dip in the temp. and lack of rest, this mood board is a very good representation of how I’m feeling and what I’ve been wrapping myself up in.

I’m a big believer in rewarding myself for hard work, so today I booked myself a facial on the day of my Birthday at the end of the month.  It will be a great way to relax once all the hoopla is over.

I’m starting to plan and work on more style posts that I’ll having coming soon to PGITC.  Hard to believe that Winter and Holiday posts are already in the works too!  And Vancouver Mommies…I have a fab giveaway coming your way soon too.  Stay tuned!
