The Foaster

Okay Apple lovers I have discovered the coolest accessory for your iPhone. If you haven’t heard of it already it’s called the Foaster. It is an elegant charger for your iPhone and it looks like a toaster. It is meant to de-clutter all those cords, is designed to look good in a kitchen and it lets you charge 2 iPhone’s at a time.

Probably my favourite feature is it was designed so that you can see your phone while it’s charging so you can see if you get a message. If you do get a message while you have one hand dirty from making dinner you can easily use the free hand to grab the iPhone instead of having to use both hands to unplug it. This creative device isn’t on the market yet but it should be able to buy in March of 2014. I can’t wait to put this in my kitchen!

8 Must Haves in your Carry-on

Bon Voyage!! I am off to Toronto tomorrow for a little vacation to visit some family and friends. I am super excited for my trip but I dread packing. I am one of those people that want to bring EVERYTHING.. It’s suppose to rain twice while I am there and for that reason I wanted to bring my Hunter wellies. I took me a day to convince myself I won’t really need them. But my suitcase is now full! and I am just packing up my bag for the plane. Here are some tips and things I plan on bringing with me so I can enjoy my flight!

1) Use a big purse/bag!! I am using my Michael Kors Jet Set Macbook Travel Tote which is perfect because it has a compartment for my Macbook Pro and it still leaves tons of space for other things that I need to bring with me.

2) Bring a Laptop or iPad to play with. I get really bored on planes, especially when I am alone. I will be bringing my laptop to keep me entertained. But I also don’t trust having my laptop in my suitcase so even if I don’t plan on using it I want it with me. Along with my laptop I make sure I have my charger and iPhone charger.

3) Bring a book or Magazines. I am bringing both, again it’s mainly for entertainment purposes.

4) Chapstick!! I am seriously a lipgloss/chapstick hoarder.. I have put in 5 different kinds in my bag.

5) I like to bring my own blanket. The ones they give you on the plane just plain suck. I tend to get cold easily, so I prefer to bring my own fuzzy blanket. I also am packing a scarf with me to put on once I land in Toronto.

6) Proper Identification and cash! This is important anytime your are going on a flight, mainly because they won’t let you on if you don’t have the right ID and it is always safe to have some kind of cash with you, just incase.

7) HEADPHONES. This is crucial. If you want to watch a movie or listen to music you are going to need these, unless you enjoy listening to the person beside you snore.

8) Gum and snacks! Gum for taking off and snacks because you never know when you’ll get hungry!

Birthday Wish List

We’ve officially started Fall and October is just around the corner – where has the time gone?! I swear each month goes by faster and faster. (Which also means that our wedding is 11 months away –  eep!) I may or may not have already mentioned that October is my favourite month of the year…because it’s my BIRTHDAY MONTH! I don’t really celebrate it all month long but try to stretch it out for a week of celebrations. The week will consist of lunches and/or dinners with family, a night out with my friends & a nice evening with my fiance. However, this year he goes away the day before my birthday for work *tear* but we’re going away to Whistler for a couple nights the previous week which I’m very excited about!

Personally I LOVE celebrating birthdays, whether it’s mine or someone else’s. I know lots of people who could care less about celebrating which makes me feel more inclined to give said person a card and even a little gift. I either bake cupcakes for them in their favourite colours/flavour or give them something related to their interests, so it feels more personal & thoughtful. When it comes to gifts for my birthday (even Christmas) I tend to think that I’m very easy to shop for, however, some of my friends seem to disagree. Pretty much anything to do with cupcakes, clothes/shoes/shopping or unicorns is a safe bet. And anything purple or sparkly. As I get older there doesn’t seem to be as much that I wish for like I did as a child. It becomes less about material items and more about feeling loved on the 1 day a year that’s all about me. So here’s this years little Birthday Wish List!

katespadeagendaI use an agenda at work for planning out all my visual changes & since we’re getting closer to the end of the year I’m going to need a new one for the new year – and this gold polka dot one by Kate Spade from Chapters fits the bill perfectly!iphone5s_white_medI still technically have to wait a year before upgrading without paying a fee but since they released the iPhone 5S I think it’s time to upgrade early. 1) Because I’m still team Blackberry and 2) it now comes in gold.

justintimberlakeI’m really enjoying the new music he’s been putting out and I missed seeing him last time he came to Vancouver for his solo headlining tour. (balcony tickets showed up but I was selfish & wanted to search for something better and sure enough they sold out – I legit shed a tear) So this time I really want to see him – I know he’d put on a great show! Tickets go on sale Monday!

As if I need another pair of shoes. I already have cognac booties and black booties but I’ve fallen in love with taupe coloured ones as well. These are my current favs from Aldo!

hunterbootsOne pair of boots that every Vancouver girl needs – rain boots. I have a pair of floral rain boots but these classic black Hunters need to be added to my closet as well. They’ll go with every outfit, as black always does.

giftcard2And of course, you can never go wrong with a gift card! It may not necessarily be a personal gift but for any shopaholic – like myself – they’re perfect! Get me a gift card for any store that I shop at and I will have no problem finding a goodie, or two, to take home with me.
