Happy Thanksgiving!

This year, Thanksgiving is just me and the pooch! He didn’t get me anything but I know he is thankful for me. I got him the Ruffian-Chicken-Dog-Toy. I am thankful for everyone who has supported my journey to the crazy city of LA and of course everyone who reads the blog!

you can get it here
and here’s a lil something for y’all!

Thicker than a Snicker?

For all you ample and curvaceously blessed women I have something for you that’ll make you happier than the day you discovered that really sexy bra that didn’t kill your shoulders, or suffocate your breasts! 
They say it’s almost impossible to find a chic dress that’s comfortable and compliments a curvy womans’ shape, but I say there’s no such thing as impossible! That doesn’t mean you should go squeezing into something that was made for a girl with no booty, hips, and tits. There are tonnes of elegant, sexier optipns that will sit nicely/comfortably on your hips 🙂
That’s where Toronto based fashion showroom and weboutique Lola & Gigi come in. They understand that every girl/woman curvy or not, needs a look that makes them glow. They bring quality, and stylish clothing to women sizes 12 to 24. They also offer expert style advice, providing women with the support they need to love and rock their curves with Pride! 

Lola & Gigi x Stella & Dot Present the Rock Your Frock Shopping Event!

“Lola & Gigi abounds in infinite and wonderful wardrobe possibilities”.– doesn’t that just sound like somewhere you wanna be?!
The Mission? To help curvy women find a complete chic holiday look.

Lola & Gigi and Stella & Dot will help curvy women rock their frocks and sparkle from head to toe, providing a holiday look for every personality! While Laura Caravaggio provides clients with customized fitting and individual style advice; independent Stella & Dot Stylist, Shelley Inglis will be pairing statement necklaces, earrings and bracelets from the Stella & Dot collection with selected Lola &  Gigi frocks. It’s gonna be magical! 

And just when you thought it couldn’t get better…They also have SHOES!! whether you’re looking for a kitten heel or flirty pump, look no further; Lola & Gigi provide shoes from Barefoot Tess in sizes 11 to 15.
So where and WHEN is all this magic happening??
This Saturday at the Old Mill Inn and Spa: The Drawing Room!

The Balconies

“The three split songwriting and vocal duty, each bringing to the table diverse and eclectic styles, influences, and impressive vocal range…The result is a blossoming blend of classic and garage rock, catchy pop hooks, and bass lines which twist and groove through an unquantifiable list of influences and genres.” – Bridging the Atlantic Blog

“The Balconies are a power popping trio with a nice pedigree, tons of energy and the songwriting chops to make their self-titled, self released debut one to

Jacquie Neville, Liam Jaeger, and Steve Neville are The Balconies; a trio made up of a brother, sister and boyfriend (sounds like fun!). They’re Ottawa’s pride and joy, and they’ve been turning heads with exciting live performances all over the country; sharing the stages with notable acts like Mother Mother, Young Rival, Sister Suvi and the Bicycles to name a few…They’re all experienced songwriters and performers, so it’s understandable that they are quickly becoming one of Canada’s most promising new indie bands!
Formed in only December 2007, The Balconies have built a reputation for their high-energy-rock-out shows in a very short amount of time. They recently released their debut album this past September and they’ll be capping off the year with two holiday shows in both their hometowns (Toronto + Ottawa; including a performance at this years AudioBlood and Third Estate’s Jingle Bell Rock Event. An event featuring artists such as CMTM, Make Your Exit, and Oh No Forest Fires, omg I gotta be there! Love them all!

They have a couple shows coming up, so make sure you go check them out!
