Happy New Year! I hope you are all well and have been enjoying the first few weeks of 2014! I guess I spoke a little prematurely when I said I was back a month ago….. as my life was consumed with physio for the ankle and then poor little Charlie became very ill with a rare condition. So we spent the last few weeks of 2013 nursing each other back to fighting form! So HELLO 2014, GOODBYE 2013!
One thing I have been loving lately is cuddly critter sweaters. When my dear friend sent me this foxy one for Christmas it was perfection! It is such a fun way to add a bit of whimsy to your ensemble while proudly showcasing your love of animals. Perfect for a casual Saturday, and so easy to swap the denim for a great black leather skirt and a pair of heels for the office scene. Cheers!

Hello! It has been quite a few months and the blogging hiatus has finally come to an end. I am finally back on my “foot” and re-joining the world of the living. The old adage that things happen in three has proved true in my case as it was a shattered ankle, followed by appendicitis and then an infection. I am happy that it all happened in a timely fashion when I was already down for the count and recuperating as I had my wonderful husband, friends and neighbors to look after me. With my fancy boot I now also answer to the moniker “Megadon,” part woman, part transformer.
It seems in my convalescence that I have missed the gradual change of the seasons from Summer to Fall and there is already a nip in the air. Christmas decorations are up in department stores and the lights are waiting to be turned on to twinkling on Regent Street. My oh my. So as I slowly swap out PJ’s and loungewear I am sticking to the basics for Fall: cozy sweaters, plush scarves and layers upon layers. Hope you are well and warm in your little nook of the world. Cheers!

Hello all! Sorry for the long absence, but the fabulous heels and stairs combination finally got the better of me! I took a tumble at the beginning of the month and broke my ankle. So the past few weeks have been filled with surgery and lots of bed rest. This is me and Char bear in my first “outing” since the injury. My wonderful husband rented me some fancy wheels so I can get out and about and enjoy the Fall weather. I will be in a cast for the next five weeks, so posting will be sporadic. Boyfriend jeans have been my savior as they are the only trouser that fits over the cast at the moment. I have had my eye on some fancy sweatpants but have been unable to follow through on the purchase. I think there is a part of me that feels that if I let myself get too comfortable what other standards will I relax? hah. Hope you are well! Cheers!
