Megadon 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!

“Break”ing News!

Posted in There's {a} Way

Breaking NewsHello 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!

Taking a Moment….

Posted in There's {a} Way

Taking a moment….in Amsterdam!!  August is the month of travel. How European I have become in the two and a half years of living here. After our sailing of the Adriatic we made a quick weekend getaway to Amsterdam with two other couples. We arrived a day earlier than the rest of our party which gave me time to explore vintage shops (check out my instagram for a glimpse at some of the goods “mjintheuk”), home good stores and coffee breaks in the form of a macchiato 😉  For an outfit that would take me from an early morning flight to a questionable bedtime I opted for distressed denim, a sensible pair of walking shoes, and a bit of glitz in the form of a sequin top. The top drew a bit of attention at the airport  by a businessman heading to Edinborough who said he hoped I was “headed somewhere fun.” My response, “I am the fun.”  Hope you are all enjoying the last rays of summer wherever you may be! Cheers!
