More stuff I bought in Mexico

On top of the knick knacks and jewelry and scarves I bought in Mexico, I also scored large in the clothing department and pretty decent with shoes. My husband took some photos while I attempted to model them - all the while he kept trying to crack me up hence several of my huge, goofy smiles.

Love these 2 little mini skirts. (They were about $35 each). From Liverpool (a big department store). Worn with my adorable new flats, which were probably $20 from our favourite hole-in-the-wall shoe store.

  

LOVE this skirt also from Liverpool. It has 2 layers, and between the layers are string that you tie together to make all that ruching happen - as much as you want or none.

  

I bought this skirt in Sayulita. The shop owner made it out of several t-shirts.Worn with some gladiator sandals I also bought there.

  

A couple of cute blousey tops, from a shop called Shasa. I think they were about $30 each. (I think Jeff was crouched down when he took these pics - my boobs look more huge than normal).

  

A little sweater vest and dolman sweater also from Shasa.

  

A double layer striped tank and striped boxy thin shirt I think both from Shasa.

  

Drapey cardigan and cute blouse from Sfera, which has got to be the Mexican version of Zara. Hat from a Cuban restaurant with little gift shop attached.

  

A dress I bought in Sayulita at same store as skirt above and to even out the photos, here's one of Phoebe who bugged me the whole time I was changing into these clothes.

  

I got alot of sun while we were south. I LOVE not being ghost white this time of the year. All my freckles popped out.I could do without the slight sunglass tan tho'.

Peaches and Cream

I was just listening to one of my favourite songs and I thought I'd share it with you guys. It's sung by Jack Pelletier, a co-worker of mine for almost 8 years whom I miss terribly (he's been off on parental leave since early December). He just sent out an email about his band (Jack Pelletier and the Battle of Ontario) opening for Eric Passmore this Saturday at Irene's Pub on Bank St. Perhaps I'll drag the hubby out for the show. :-) (His album can be purchased at cdbaby, iTunes and MySpace).

Cat drama

So last weekend I noticed Milo had a goopy eye. When I went over to clean it and check it out to my horror he had a large abscess on his cheek under that eye. It was gross, and soon burst and was leaking all over the place. Monday we took him in to the vets. Turns out he had alot of tarter buildup on his teeth and they recommended cleaning his teeth and pulling 2 molars. At a cost of $1100. I nearly shit. Anyhoo, this happened Thursday morning. And it turns out after the knocked him out and were able to get xrays they figured out he'd need 4 teeth pulled - so $1200. (And he's got something going on with his jaw which likely means more teeth pulling in the future). So the poor little pooper has essentially no teeth on the right side. And because of the extractions I had to remove the always-present bowl of dry food from the kitchen because he can't eat it until he heals. Which means about every hour someone howls their face off in my direction in the hopes I will feed them something. AH MAH GAWD I'm gonna SNAP. Thank gawd I love all these guys to pieces.

I need these

These, my friends, are the Trash biker boot by Ash. They are SO COOL and kinda pricey (about $350). Luckily I can't really find anyone who carries them and has any decent sizes left.

There is a god

Yes folks, today proved that there is indeed a god. I know this because the following item just showed up at my door:

You may recall this nightmare I blogged before Christmas. Well, the eBay seller turned out to be SUPER accommodating to find us a replacement shade for the one that arrived here SMASHED. And here it is, identical to the original one. I am SO HAPPY this all worked out this way, and did not cost my husband another cent. Due to the overwhelmingly pleasing outcome to this scenario, I thought I should plug this eBay sellers shop because he sells some of the coolest lighting I've ever seen....and I've scoured eBay plenty of times for lighting lemme tell ya. So his seller name is superb3003, he is located in the Netherlands, and OMG right now he's got some INCREDIBLE retro light fixtures. After today, I would now highly recommend this shop. :-)
