Childhood Memories

On Thursday June 25, 2009 Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson both passed away. I was shocked to hear about both of their deaths.

As a child I watched Charlie's Angels. My sister reminded me that I had the Charlie's Angels lunch box. I also had a Farrah Fawcett doll and stickers that I would put on my bike.

In the early 80's I was in love with Michael Jackson. I spent any money I had to buy magazines and buttons. I did not get to see Michael Jackson in concert. Whenever I saw the Pepsi commercial on television, I would scream at the top of my lungs.

Thanks for the memories.

My Must Haves For the Summer

This list is in no particular order.

Rimmel Lycra Wear Nail Polish Tequila Sunrise 347 - I have been looking for orange nail polish for a while

Coach Kendal Sunglasses (438) - I have been wearing these prescription sunglasses for two years and I still get compliments

H2O+ Pumice Foot Scrub - a must have if you are wearing sandals

Joe Fresh Makeup - awesome prices

H2O+ Softening Mint Foot Rub - smells good

Schick Intuition - no shaving cream required

Carol's Daughter Gelee de Soleil 15 Browning Oil - the smell takes you away to the tropics

Colourful Bag - still looking for a colourful bag

Dior Addict Lip Glow Reviver Balm SPF 10 - great lip balm that adds a hint of colour

MAC Bronzing Powder - I don't spend much time in the sun, so this bronzer adds a glow. I use it in winter as well.

Coach Baby Bags

Addison Op Art Baby Bag $498.00 style:13629

  • Op-Art print fabric with patent leather trim
  • Inside multi-function compartments
  • Fabric lining
  • Zip-top closure
  • Two outside back zip pockets
  • Two outside open gusset pockets with additional small zip pockets
  • Outside front pocket with turnlock closure
  • 46” detachable strap
  • 16 3/4" handles with 10 1/2” drop
  • 16 (L) x 12 3/4 (H) x 6 (W)
  • Includes baby changing pad
This bag is perfect. I need a bag with lots of compartments. As I have said many times, I carry too many items in my bag and I can never find anything. However, I do not need the baby changing pad. It is a good idea for a mother who would still like to carry a stylish handbag.

iPhone 3G S

Apple is always coming out with new products. I am a fan. I love my Macbook and my iPods. I always wanted to get the iPhone. The iPhone was not available in Canada until 2008. I was stuck in a 3 year contract with my cellphone company. I decided to get the iPod Touch which is very similar to the iPhone, except it does not have the phone or camera. I can access my email or internet where ever there is a wireless connection.

On my trip I noticed that there were a lot of people in London and Paris that owned the iPhone. I really want it, but I do not want to pay the high voice and data plans. Right now I pay $28.25 for my cellphone (including taxes, network and access fees).

Now that it a 32GB version is available, it is looking more attractive.

The website is a personal shopper that searches thousands of brands to find fashions in your style and size.  The Stylyzer results are based on your preferences from a series of images presented.

My Stylyzer Results

Classic Preppy

J. Crew thanks you for your business. Your closet has an array of timeless cardigans and chic flats. Prim & proper but never stuffy, you pride yourself on being pulled together like iconic prepsters Michelle Obama and Reese Witherspoon.

Wardrobe Influences

Classic Professional

You understand that dressing professional is more than donning a power suit. From impeccably tailored pieces to sleek bags that fit all your essentials, your look reflects your take-charge attitude.

Classic Modern

You combine timeless pieces with contemporary silhouettes. Wardrobe staples in a mod color palette line your closet. Your flair for distinguishing what's fleeting and what is timeless from today's trends epitomizes classic sophistication.

I have never categorized my style before. I just try to buy clothes that fit. At my age I try to stay away from trendy clothes. I refuse to wear anything from the 80's. I lived through the 80's. I cannot wear neon colours or leggings again.

Lady In Black

One day someone asked me if I was in mourning. I thought that was an odd question. They said that I was wearing all black. Actually, I was wearing a black jacket and dark blue jeans. I do not own a lot of clothes in bright colours. Michelle Obama takes chances with her wardrobe that I could never take.

For some odd reason about 90% of my summer wardrobe is black. That is not a good thing as black attracts heat. Not only is my wardrobe black, but also my bags, jewellery and shoes. I thought I had passed that phase in my life when I ONLY wore black. It must be an unconscious decision on my part.

I am not totally hopeless. I do own these cute Geox red shoes and purple Latico clutch.
