Yesterday was the Toronto Blue Jays home opener game.  For you non-sports fans, the Blue Jays are Toronto’s Major League Baseball team.  Even though I’m not really a baseball fan, Justin is a huge Jays fanatic, so we end up watching a lot of baseball in our house.  Well . . .  Justin watches a lot of baseball while I usually take that time to read fashion magazines.

 

Justin was heading to the home opener last night, and decided to create a baseball themed dinner for us and his friend.  On the menu were “franks and beans” along with a yummy macaroni salad, but where the fun part comes in is that we also decided to have a blind hot dog taste challenge.  The two opponents were the Schneider’s Juicy Jumbos versus the Chicago 58 Lanky Frankys.  We tested them both plain and fully dressed with condiments in a bun.  To make it fair, we also filled out our own secret ballots so not to influence one another.  I know you’re all on the edge of your seats waiting to find out which wiener won. . .well, it was a clean sweep. .  .the Juicy Jumbos swept both categories, and were hands down our favourites.  We’ve now decided to make the hot dog challenge an annual tradition, and next year the Juicy Jumbo’s will go head to head with another challenger.  (I know. . . my life is pretty exciting. *Sigh*)

 

Now that I’ve bored you all with my hot dog story, we can chat a little bit about fashion.  I had my eye on this Danier leather skirt for a while, and finally picked it up when it went on sale.  I just love the black and white contrast, the faux-wrap, and the buttery soft leather.

 

In other exciting news, I am so honored to be featured on Style Elixir as Lauren’s Head Stylist for her Style Sessions fashion link up this week.  Please check it out, and also feel free to join the link up yourself!

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Do you have any fun or romantic plans for tonight?  Every year, Justin makes me a delicious Valentine’s dinner (since he’s the cook in the family).  Restaurants typically offer limited menus with inflated prices on Valentine’s Day, so Justin and I usually do a pre- or post-Valentine’s dinner at a restaurant on the weekend instead.

 

These photos were taken last weekend after the big snow storm.  Friday was a snow day for me, as it was for many others in the Greater Toronto Area.  I live in downtown Toronto but work in a suburb 30 minutes away, so driving to work in the morning was out of the question.  We spent the day watching the chaos on the streets below from the warmth of our apartment.  We had a good chuckle watching several people actually skiing down the streets of the city, definitely a sight you don’t see everyday.

 

I hope you and your sweetheart have a wonderful day together.  To all the single ladies (and gents), I hope you are doing something to spoil yourself today!

I have finally checked two items off of my long shopping wish list that I’ve been on the hunt for for many years…a chic grey winter coat and a versatile pair of black leather booties.  Other items that have been on my wish list for several years but I have yet to find the perfect pieces are a sleek black leather jacket, a pair of flat riding boots, fun yellow pumps and a great leopard print daytime handbag.  What’s been on your list for a while now but you have yet to find the perfect item?
