It has been a crazy busy few weeks because of all the Christmas and holiday happenings. So much to blog about and so little time!
One exciting thing that happened lately was that Brittany Alexander nominated me for the Reality Blog Award! If you aren’t familiar with Brittany Alexander’s blog, Inside Public Minds, it is about current news and things that really matter in the world. Therefore, I am extremely honoured to have been chosen by someone who blogs about such important things to receive the Reality Blog Award.
This blog award is for having a blog that is real and inspiring, among other things. You should definitely check out Inside Public Minds if you are looking for a perfectly balanced (**insight**) of what’s going on in the world.
The next step in accepting this award is to nominate a few blogs that fit within the criteria of this award. I read a lot of great blogs so it will be hard to keep it to “a few”, but the ones I have chosen, I highly recommend that you check out because I’m sure they will inspire you just as they have inspired me.

And because fashion never sleeps, I have to mention what I’m wearing on this beautiful Ontario winter’s day.
Oh look guys! Doesn’t this picture remind you of something I said I was coveting in an earlier post? Hey, it’s that winter coat from Zara! Lots of my readers gave me feedback when I asked readers to let me know which I should get, the equestrian houndstooth blazer (click to see blazer) or the coat above.
I love this coat so much because it’s just the right thing to wear over almost any outfit, and unlike my other winter coat, which is more of a blazer, this can be dressed down as well as up.
But for those of you who said I should get the houndstooth jacket, which was all of you who replied, I’m happy to announce that I got both!
Thank you mom!
