Day 5

I am on day 5 of my style challenge and I feel its going great and think it will only get better. It is making me think outside of the box and to really go through my closet. I am having to find piece that haven’t been worn in a while or not at all. Yes, I am only on day 5 so the though process it still a little on the easier side. I do feel its going to start to get a lot tougher by next week when part of my plan of doing this challenge was to try my hardest to not ware the same thing twice if I can. Yes, there will be some exception as jeans are different. Everyone including me have a couple of pairs that are loved so much that they get worn all the time. So yes I will most like be wearing my jeans more then once, and really who doesn’t.

if you haven’t checked out my outfits on instagram here are the ones from the past few days. I f you are on instagram and want to follow along or try my challenge yourself,  you can do so with the hash tag #MrsLongsStyleChallenge. I would love to see the outfits that you have styled and put together. And for those who are following along I have see some great pieces and cant wait to see the rest.

Enjoy!

Style Challenge

As the month of May is here I am starting it off with a style challenge. It is my birthday month and I want to enjoy it to the fullest.

I have created a list that I feel will best challenge myself at trying new outfits, new pieces And bring out the a new me. My challenge this month is full of bright bold colours, as I love them but tend to stick to the grays and blacks as they are easy to pair and find in my closet. I have also added some prints and patters so I can take my self out of the neutral zone no solids. I also want to accessorize as much as possible.

This challenge may also want to take me out and do a little spring shopping as I may need to update my closet as some days I’m not so sure I have the outfit in there. and it hasn’t really been up dated in a few years as I tend to purchase more for my boys now then myself.

I hope this month of challenges starts off my 32nd year with new adventures, dreams and creations.

If you would like to see the outfits I will be putting together, follow me on instagram as that it where my creations will be displayed.

Bright Whites

As spring has finely arrive in the city of Toronto I feel the need to bring out my white pants. Yes I have been wanting to wear them all winter and I really should have as winter whites look amazing, I just didn’t have it in me. Well now I do and I have found my inspiration to do so.
As I was spending a little time pinning on one of my favorite sites (I may spend a little to much time on there.) I found some amazing outfits with white pants. One stood out at me, as if felt like I could recreate it as I had similar clothing in my closet and looks office appropriate.
Pinterest

This outfit was perfect for me to try and make it my own. Spring style at it finest I think so here is my recreation on how I have style a similar looking piece.

Enjoy!

A Spring Start

Hello again I feel I should be saying as it has been so long. My March was jammed packed full of life evens and my April is off to the same start.

As I never got to do a post for the month of March here it is in review.
I had an amazing March. If you follow me on instagram you may all ready know this, as I have posted a few pictures there. For some reason I always find time for a quick update as I have a little love for instagrm and a life full of pictures.
My month started off with a wonderful week with my family to the in Cancun Mexico. The place was just beautiful and great for our whole family. There where things for the kids to do everyday. The pool was great as we spent most of our week there and we met a lot of great people. My husband and I could not have asked or wished for a better time. We are already trying to plan our trip back next year.

My month was also full of a few different outfit changes. Now that the season spring has arrived I am hoping to have a better verity of colours and style. The problem I have been having is the calendar is saying it’s spring but I have to say here in Toronto it hasn’t felt to much like it. I could really use some more warmer days as I would really like to get rig of the socks and pull out the flats. I know I really could but I am one of those people that just cant get warm and once my feet are cold that is it an I am done for the day.
so as April is here please send some warm beautiful weather our way so I can put away the boots and bring out the flats and enjoy some good choice in style and fashion as I am a little tired of the winter wardrobes.

6 Years of Love

I became a wife 6 years ago on the very day, Tuesday February 24th 2009 at 2pm to my very handsome husband. We wed on a cruise ship int eh middle of the Caribbean Sea in front of 30 of our closest friends and family. I could not have asked for anything better to happen that day, and could not have been happier with how the whole day turned out. I still remember it like it was yesterday and the truth is who doesn’t remember there wedding as it should be one of the happiest days of your life and mine was.
To describe this perfect day as I remember it. The sky was blue with perfect puffy white clouds, the water was crystal blue and sparkled with the hot sun shining off of it. (That truthfully was all I was hoping for as I’m from Canada and the end of February is most likely freeing cold). As my now husband was standing at the end of the aisle waiting for me to walk down, dressed in his white suite (yes, I wanted a white wedding and had asked all my gust to be dressed in a shade of white) All I was thinking was that I could not have been happier person with the decision I was about to make.
Yes in the past 6 years we have had our ups and downs, our cries and kisses, but to this day I could not happier with the man that I call my best friend, my soulmate, my rock. He is the one that brings a smile to my face everyday, makes me laugh so hard I cry, and picks me up when I am down.
I would like to wish my very handsome husband a happy 6th anniversary and to many more wonderful years with you.

Love
Mrs. Long

Tea Time

As you may have noticed I am a lover of tea. I don’t drink coffee and it does surprise most people that I go through and entire day with out one drop, but I have to say I can not go with out my tea. Most days I will drink 3 – 4 cups of tea. It just my kicker. Love and live for my tea. I do have a favorite brand and it daves tea. They have some of the most amazing flavors.
I wanted to share a few of my favorites from this past holiday. Yes these were holiday teas, but when I walked in as saw them there I just had to have them. Tea keep my heart and body warm and give me such a reading feeling. Truthful during the holiday I didn’t feel that I had any free time or get to enjoy these flavors and now I can.
If your a tea drinking what are your favorite types of tea to drink. I have to say I lean more toward the black teas.

Shrimp Tacos

One of this years New Years resolution is to eat better. It’s not like I’m a bad eater and have tons of junk all the time, it’s just I have some savory taste buds and love my salty foods. I feel if our family dinner this year start off healthy we will feel much better about our selfs and hopefully will start getting my children to eat more. (They are some picky boys so it makes it hard for me as the parent to decide what to make)
Last night dinner was some shrimp tacos. They turned out delicious and my family at least tried the. Lol!
The boys were not a fan of the shrimp but they did eat most of the taco.

What I used to make these were half a package of frozen shrimp, corn, tomatoes, red onion, avocado & lettuce.
To defrosted the shrimp and then cooked them in a little bit of coconut oil and fajita seasoning.
I cut up all the veggies and tossed them in a bowl. I also heated up the corn and tortilla wraps.
Once all was cooked I just topped it all together on the tortilla. And dinner was done. And easy yummy fix for the whole family.

I also cooked a little bit of rice as my kids love it.

Sorry not the greatest at describing how to cook as I’m not the greatest of chefs. I do try but if it’s going to take some time I may leave it for some one else to make 🙂
