Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend, not quite though! This morning is a quiet, cold, comfy morning here in Vancouver! The first snow has left a glorious winter’s touch to our mountains!

Days like today make me think about how amazingly crazy and busy life is! Taking moments like this in the morning and finding appreciation in little things, lets me to step back and be filled with love and thankfulness!

Sorry if I’m being too cheesy for you this morning. I know you love it!

Anyhow, just got me thinking about all the talented, gorgeous, thoughtful, hard working, fun girls I get to do life with! Today I’m thankful for ALL of you! Old girlfriends, new girlfriends and the ones yet to come! It’s true, we pick and choose! But they’re always the best ones!

Share the warm and fuzzy girlfriend love today! You know you want to! xo

Versace for H&M

I get so excited when I hear about top designers collaborating with H&M! It’s a time when we can grab some of our favourite looks from iconic designers- with much better price points! Time to pencil in and book off November 17th! That’s the date the Versace for H&M collection will finally be hitting stores! Prices will range from $17.95 for crazy printed men’s boxer briefs, to $299 for Anna Dello Russo‘s studded leather dress, hinted on  WWD! Drooling over that leather dress!

The collection is quite stunning, especially since most of the leopard print, Miami, palm tree patterns are straight from our beloved favourite 80′s era!

I had a little fun with the contest that Polyvore is running right now! By pulling all the fun pieces from the Versace for H&M collection, you can creating your own iconic look! You could win three complete Versace for H&M outfits! Plus, ten lucky winners will be chosen daily to win an exclusive scarf from the collection. Sounds fun right!!?! Here is mine on today’s post and my submission, here.

If you end up submitting one, I would love to see it!

I love “running into” great finds on the internet! Especially this random find this morning! Keep Calm Gallery out of London, is fabulous on so many levels. Classic, fun, and corky sayings printed on poster board, cards and even tea towels!! I know there are so many shops/ sites on line with similar momentum, but this store really caught my eye!! (How cute is the, “I’ll Wash, You Dry” tea towel!?!)

Here’s a little bit about their story: “Keep Calm Gallery was established in January 2007 by Lucas and Hayley Lepola, now a husband and wife team! The site was born out of their passion for typography in poster design, British heritage and the medium of screen printing. In the beginning Keep Calm Gallery was run from their university halls. The site is now run from their cosy office in south east London, not far from their small Victorian house, which they share with their two handsome cats.” Sounds romantic!

Be sure to check them out!
