Every fall my work mates and I go around to a bunch of different academic departments here on campus to give short orientation sessions – I feel like having to speak for 10 minutes in front of crowds ranging from five people to over 150 was as good an occasion as any to wear my striped blazer.

Mint Green

I really need to get more pieces in my closet in this sort of mint green shade. I don’t wear colour that often or really gravitate to it much at all, but I do love a dash of green and I find this mint shade really soothing. Now to remember to keep my eyes peeled the next time I’m shopping…

Bye Bye Summer

Summer this year in my neck of the woods was a rather dismal affair with very few warm days and a lot of rainy and windy days. I’m not at all complaining about that though because, a) I really dislike summer and b) it means I didn’t have to wait until fall proper to wear my new poncho.

I’m irritated with myself for not taking more photos of this rarely worn dress that has sort of a ballet/dance vibe to me (owing to the length and the thin layer of tulle on it). I guess next time? So, you know, in like 2 years…

From Now On I Want To Drink Everything From This Bottle

I was recently offered the opportunity to test drive an amazing copper bottle for water.

Why would the fact that this water vessel is a copper bottle matter you ask? Well, turns out it can have some pretty great health benefits. Water stored in a copper bottle (known as “tamra jal” in the Ayurvedic medical tradition) is gently infused with the positive health properties of copper and helps balance the three doshas in your body (vata, kapha and pitta). Water stored in a copper bottle also becomes natural alkaline water which helps to balance your body’s pH levels.

Another great thing about this copper bottle is that the company producing it donates 15% of its profits to several non-profit organizations that work to supply clean drinking water in developing countries. So this copper bottle is good for you and good for others.

All that said, a major reason I love this copper bottle so much is that it’s incredibly stylish. It actually looks pretty great in my house (so I’m not rushing to get it into a cupboard when company comes over) and it also looks super cute tucked in my purse. You can learn more about the benefits of these bottles here and can also get your own copper bottle here. You can also learn more on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest with the handle @copperh2o and hashtag #copperh2o.

All the Frills: Is There Such A Thing As Too Many Rings?

I was organizing my jewelry box the other day and I’m starting to think I have entirely far too many rings … sigh.

I purchased this rather ostentatious necklace for my Halloween costume (I‘m going as mid-cabaret act Countess Luann (if you watch Real Housewives of NYC you know what I’m talking about)) but decided it was too pretty to not take out for a pre-Halloween spin.

Animal Print Addition

Just hanging about in my drive way, looking like I’m filled with murderous rage…

In all seriousness, I’ve very pleased with this animal print midi skirt that I acquired recently. I’ve been on the hunt for a piece like this for quite some time so now I can cross it off my seemingly never ending to-do list.

Feeling Surly

Another day, another opportunity to look unrelentingly sullen and mildly surly. I consider myself to be a generally pretty happy person – I’ve just got an epic resting bitch face and, in all fairness, I am usually low-key irritated about something pretty much all the time…

As you can tell, I am totally into summer. The “summer” weather here has been all over the map this year – sunny days with cold breezes, rain threatening constantly, etc – so wearing my usual all black has actually been even easier than usual this year.

Adventures With Eleanor

I took a week of vacation in late July/early August as Eleanor’s day home was closed – Eleanor and I spent the whole week having adventures and doing fun things, like visiting the university campus and my office there. She seemed confused as to why we were there…

Play Date at the Park

Worn to take Eleanor to a play date at the park on a day that was a little chilly and seemed to threaten rain at every turn. Somehow, now matter how much I tried to get it all off before we left, I wound up taking home about 5 cups of sand in the back seat with Eleanor, so vacuuming out my car later was a ton of fun.
