My Five Fixations

I have complied a small list of my latest loves. It is basically some things that interest me in some way or another everyday and I am sure some of you will relate to one or more of them!

1. Leopard Print

This blog was not aimed to be a fashion blog, but what girl doesn’t like to talk about clothes and accessories every now and then?!

So, yep, leopard print is my new love. The last jumper I bought from H&M was leopard print, as was my scarf…. and my sunglasses and I just ordered a leopard pint skirt from Boohoo.com. I may have a problem!

I also noticed that H&M have leopard print bed sheets…too Bet Lynch do you think?

Road Trip

Jasper to Whistler

Our week long road trip was brilliant! We seen so much and enjoyed it all the more as my sister and brother in law flew over from Ireland to visit us for a couple of weeks. They first came over in October of 2015 so we had already showed them some of Edmonton, Banff and Lake Louise, so we all agreed that this time a short road trip would be fun.

As I tend to ramble a bit, I decided to break this trip up into two blog posts, so keep an eye out for Part 2!

Niagara Falls

The Falls

As we knew we wouldn’t be settling in Toronto, we decided we would take a trip to Niagara Falls before we left for Edmonton. We are soooo glad we did. It is so beautiful and definitely worth a trip to see. We rented a car for 3 days and made the short hour and twenty minute journey to the Falls. Buses also run regular from Toronto or Richmond Hill and are about a two hour journey if renting a car is not an option for you.
