Fossil wearing Floral for Fall

I’ve been really into internet radio stations lately. More along the lines of indie rock that has nice mellow flow to it. Kno’ what I mean? A feel good kind of music. The other day, I tweeted out that I was listening to indie rock on Grooveshark.

My cousin wrote back that she was listening to…vlodge-coffee-indie

The other stations I really love to listen to (which are more house music) or kinda loud are audioboxlive, protonradio.

But you know what? This coffee shop indie reminds me of the music they play (or should play) in the Fossil store. Kinda relaxing, but kinda indie and fun. Calls to everyone whether their age be young or old. Don’t you think it suits the Fossil theme?

Music brings back so many memories. I’m sure you all can relate. For instance, I really enjoy music from Louie Armstrong, Fats Domino, , Ella Fitzgerald and all those oldies. It brings me back to when I discovered them as a preteen. I had a periwinkle colored bedroom and drawings of Louie on my wall that I did when I was in Art School.

Jumping all over the place here with my blog post, but since I was talking about Fossil two paragraphs ago, I may as well keep going. My boss recently bought a Fossil purse but not from the flag store itself. She got it from The Bay so you probably won’t be able to get one of these again.sharis fossil 3

She also bought the same wallet I have, but hers is in brown. It’s crazy soft. Softest leather you’ll feel. Touch it through the screen, that’s how smooth and buttery it is. Trust me. K maybe the leather’s more smoother.sharis fossil 2

The color of the purse is a beautiful tomato red color. Perfect rusty red for Fall. sharis fossil 1

Here’s the other side of ‘er. It looks small in these pictures but the purse itself is bigger than my Fossil explorer crossbody. sharis fossil 4


Fossil shared their fresh floral prints on their blog the other day. Fossil Floral Fall. That’s what I’m calling it. Blue dress is A-1 in my books. The boots to go with it? I need those. I thought they stopped selling footwear? Anyone know for certain? Either way I have a pair of new booties I got from Target the other week. Similar style, which I’m digging.

The girl in the green dress reminds me of a brunette Julia Styles. Agree? Circle Yes/No for your answer please. Why did she pop into my head? Probably because I”m on the 5th season of Dexter (NO SPOILERS!) and she’s one of the main characters during that season.

Are you a fan of floral print?

Do you own anything from Fossil?

Are you ready for Fall?

At home CrossFit WOD

Today was such a lazy Saturday. We both slept a lot, and by a lot I’m sort of embarrassed to tell you we had a nap on top of the nights sleep we got last night. Because apparently 8 hours on week nights isn’t long enough for me and I needed to catch up on it.

Alfie-in-the-snowAlfie on the balcony earlier today… eating the freshly fallen snow.

McDonalds-Mocha Well, I’m wide awake now since an hour ago we headed to McDonalds to redeem our free McCafe coupons to grab a mocha each. Some tasty too b’ys. I love the way their cups fit my lips. All curvy like.

McDonalds-CouponsPsst, thanks for the extra coupons Stephanie!

Alfie wearing Canada PoochAlfie came with us for the car drive too. Isn’t this photo hilarious? It’s like he’s driving us there. Atta boy!

Alfies Canada Pooch jacketHe looks super cute in it too. I did a review on the Canada Pooch jacket for him last winter, he still loves it! It’s such great quality and doesn’t look worn at all. Bonus.

Canada-Pooch-JacketClose up of the jacket after I lint-rolled Alfie’s fur off it.

muffinsToday wasn’t an entire write-off, because I made a “big breakfast” for us, then lemon poppy seed muffins and a delicious supper with scalloped potatoes! Do you know how long they take to cook in the oven? 1.5 hours! It was torture waiting for them, and smelling them cook.

using tongs for muffinsAm I brilliant or what? I can’t stand touching hot things from the oven or toaster. In fact, my Boss scolded me this week for taking my English muffins out of the toaster with a knife. Yes it was plugged in. I shouldn’t admit that I do that…but omg isn’t the tong the best idea ever for getting muffins out of the pan?

Garnet-Hill-catalogThis post is all over the place, but that’s alright sometimes right? I got this random catalog in the mail over the past week and I have no idea how this US company got my address up here in Canada. But they did. Probably because I give my mailing address out to any survey that asks for it. Just kidding Mom! Either way, I’m digging the stuff they have for sale.

Garnet-Hill-catalog-003I want this sweater. But instead of the mint colored pants, I really want a pair of olive green one’s. I came across a pair at Top Shop last year but unfortunately didn’t want to pay the hefty $80 price tag for them. I’m a cheap girl now. I get all of my pants at H&M. Seriously. They fit me soo well. H&M, please make some olive pants for spring…

Garnet-Hill-catalog-002Like their bedding too. I’m a grey gal. Our bedding is all grey too. I should add some texture to it though, like that throw blanket. Looks nice.

I think the combination of listening to audioboxlive and drinking that caffeinated drink has made me a little hyper this evening. I can’t stop typing.

February-calendarLast week I picked up some Sharpie pens for work (thanks to Leanne’s review of them), and ended up bringing them home so I could make a February to-do calendar for the boyf and I. Jam-packed with attending CrossFit! I like the pens, since they’re fine point and they don’t bleed onto the next piece of paper.

at-home-workoutThe boyf and I ended up doing an at home CrossFit WOD tonight.

pushups-at-homeWhat? You don’t workout in jeans? Pushups, bicep curls, v-snaps. 3 full rounds! The real deal. I’ll do an “at home workout” post tomorrow about it.

Guys. I really do have to start my 50 day push up challenge again, but when I fly to Quebec later this month I don’t want to “forget” to do them, or put off doing them. But at the same time I don’t want to wait til the end of the month to start them. Suggestions? lol…

Sitting-PomeranianAnd we’re out! Good night!

Only a few more nights on the patio

There’s only a few weekends left of our beloved summer. To be honest, I think it’s completely over up here in Ontario! I’ve actually cranked the heat in my car in the mornings, when it was 18ºC outside. Isn’t that ridiculous? Who am I? I’ve become accustomed to the 40º heat I think.

What did everyone end up doing this weekend? Up until a few moments ago, the Boyfriend and I were drinking some tall boy drinks and having some snacks before supper.

That was what our weekend looks like. A lot of chilling out at home on our balcony, listening to some music (audiobox live!) and enjoying our last few weekends of the warm summer sunshine.

Speaking of music there’s a Canadian Club Mixed & Ready Cover Challenge program. If any unsigned Canadian bands interested in sharing your talents and unique sound there’s a few days left to enter.

Deadline for submissions & voting is August 27  and judging will happen shortly after. The winning band will receive recording time, new gear and a flight upwards to $3k to Toronto.

If you’re interested, find out more details on the Canadian Club Canada Facebook page.

Have you guys ever tried these Canadian Club drinks? We had some with popcorn and peanuts. I feel like a university student, or a frat boy drinkin’ with the boyfriend. They’re really good. I had the “Cola” one. Which tasted like a rum & coke.

Popcorn is my favorite snack, next to candy. But I loved breaking open the peanut shells.

I ended up doing a few loads of laundry which I air dried out on the balcony. Browsing the net for some chunky knit wool scarves (and will be posting my favorite links + photos in the near future. I’ve also planned out our meals for this week — something I haven’t done in months it seems, and writing the Broski of mine a funny Happy Birthday card, since his birthday is this week!

So we’ll sit back, relax while taking artsy shots of the alcoholic beverages we’ve consumed and enjoy the last few days of summer.

Has anyone else been reading up on people’s blogs talking about the HLS12 (Healthy Living Summit 2012)? So jealous of the people who ended up getting some really amazing swag from Reebok, one of the sponsors this year. They gave everyone some minimalistic Reebok CrossFit sneakers! Amazing right?

Cheers to endless summer nights!
