It's starting to get cold here in Vancouver. I just got these mittens that I can use with my iPhone. They are super warm too because they're fleece lined. I've already gathered together all my toques, mittens and scarves so I'm ready for when it's really cold.

I like these too:

These are my "nerdy" glasses from Firmoo. With magazine in hand and book in bag I'm ready to read the rest of the night away. I'm currently reading Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich. These are my second pair of glasses from Firmoo. Check out the first pair I got here. Firmoo has a First Pair Free program offering free eyewear for first time buyers so be sure to check them out too.

Lifetime Collective Spring/Summer 2013

Image
Last week I attended the media preview of Lifetime Collective's Spring/Summer 2013 collection. The event was held at the Vancouver Urban Winery in Railtown. I had the pleasure of meeting both co-founders Reid Stewart and Trevor Fleming. The women's collection is extremely wearable with casual pieces that can seamlessly fit into any wardrobe. I especially liked these items below that can be layered for our Vancouver weather.  Jacket with printed lining Multicolour knit sweater (comes in three different styles) Overalls Printed pants (this print is throughout the collection) Necklaces (there's cute little earrings too) Obligatory shot of the food provided by Railtown Cafe. Those cookies were delicious!
Check out these Lifetime Collective pieces that are available now:
