I love finding hidden gems at Winners – on my last visit I found this white tray and sparkly candle – just what I needed for my coffee table!
I purchased this camisole top during the GUESS winter sale using my $20 giftcard from the #PRESSDAYS event. It will be perfect to layer under a wrap sweater when I’m lounging around the house – a lot more glam than my usual tank tops!
Speaking of lounging around – I was feeling crafty over Winter Break and made these glove animals as New Year’s presents for my kids (I confess…the one in the middle is for me!!! Doesn’t she look like Hello Kitty?). I followed this tutorial from Martha Stewart – and sewed on buttons and pieces of felt to make the faces. This is a great craft to make – the materials are easy to source (gloves from the dollar store!) and the steps are very simple. It especially helps if you do it in a group/assembly line – my mother, sister and I made 5 of these in total – with my mother on the sewing machine and my sister in charge of stuffing.
And now for my exciting news…you can tell from my blog that I LOVE to shop…so what could be more perfect for me than joining Yummy Mummy Club as their Shopping Blogger? So excited for this new role – check out my first post here.
I’ll leave you with 2 recent outfits – with the deep cold setting in, I need all the layers I can get.

I also made some POM POM puppies for my kids recently – here’s my daughter’s puppy. I followed the instructions in this book – luckily all the supplies (except for scissors) came in the kit, so it was really easy to make!
