Every Outfits Has Its Reason -

Hello Ladies!
First, thank you for your warm comments about me loosing my job - I 'm very happy still, can't talk to much about it, i have to make a few decisions and you don't know who is reading blogs  -

All i can say is  that  all that free time is  well deserve  -  I tell you

It was time to make major decisions in my life it's really a blessing for me -
 That said everything is going extremely well -  I got into a routine - I want to stay focus and positive
Call me weird but i still wake up at 6 am but i like to kiss goodbye to my Mr. D in the morning  - After that i have my lemon and warm water drink,  I have a couple of coffees - Check the Internet  and work out every morning for 40  minutes -  Treadmill and yoga
I eat a very healthy  breakfast - Usually chia  seeds with maple syrup, red grapes and sometimes raw almonds and pumpkin seeds-
Lunch is usually vegetarian
Supper is another story ....a little wine is involved but still healthy but copious -

Exercising and eating well and getting into a routine makes me feel good  -
Now the outfits and  i have a few for you ----
 This the outfit i wore today to cook the turkey - Ha! Ha! Ha! i know I'm completely crazy !



This is the outfit i wore this week for physio

This is the outfit i wore to do the X-mas cooking this week 
I did 10 french Canadian  meat pies
Beef, pork  and veal plus spices
I put cinnamon, steak spice - garlic - thyme - tarragon - The recipe calls for ground cloves as well but didn't put any since Mr D hates cloves
I  added vegetable stock and let it simmered for a while until the stock is almost gone
I then put the meat in pie crusts

 I deserved a bit of wine after all that work

 I also made nun's farts

Left over pie crust - butter, brown sugar on pie crust, roll and cut

 This i wore for the cleaning Lady


This is when i hit the charity shops and found.....

These Gucci boots for $10


I nearly pipied in my pants!

And they fit!

Couldn't believe it !


Tomorrow more cooking - i will be making turkey pies

Leo the cat is going for a shave as well - the reason why Leo is shaved so often is because he throws up a lot of hair balls - He 's throws up a lot less when he gets the shave!

Talking of cats - Here 's ChouChou - he is doing well - His thyroid is under control - he gained back weight and he's back to his old self -

He lives under the X-mas tree these days !


I hope you enjoyed this post
I will have a couple of blogger features in the next while
and do not miss next week  Faux Fur my way !

In the meantime i will be joining Ta- Dah Tuesday!
Oh! Izzy is featured on cultmontreal -   check it out - and she just told me they put in my blog link  in the article, very cool!
Take care Ladies
I will see you soon
Ariane xxxxx

I love all your outfits, Ariane, especially the second-last one. Quelle find on those Gucci boots!! And they actually fit you? Lucky girl. Glad to hear ChouChou is doing better. :) xoxo

Marla said...

Wow, you look great. Glad you are in good spirits. So many amazing outfits I am dizzy. I don't know which one I like best.

Krista said...

Looking extra bright in these amazing photos! I do love you pink! I'd say you deserve at least 2 glasses of wine. The meat pies have my mouth watering. YUM! Merry Everything!

Vix said...

I'm so glad you're enjoying your new found freedom, drinking wine and rocking colour to the max! If you were working you'd never have found those fabulous boots.
Nun's Farts? You are hilarious!
Hope Leo gets on okay and that Chou-Chou continues to improve.
Loads of love. xxxxxxx

Melanie said...

Your pink hair - it goes with everything. I love all your outfits, the colours are so positive and vibrant. I can't believe $10 for Gucci boots! Score!!
I also think your cooking is much better than Miss Cupcake's! Your house must smell wonderful with all that baking. I'm glad ChouChou is feeling better.
And that's great news about Izzy's article. It's fantastic that your blog link is included.

Mary Lou said...

Connie said...

Nun's farts! Hello! We've always made those. They had no name. Nun's farts. I LOVE IT! You just made my day!

PinkCheetahVintage said...

I am going to try to make those meat pies!! They sound so good!! $10 Gucci boots are a major score :)) Your days and outfits are filled with fun!

Joni said...

Oh my, what a score on those booties! Few and far between do I ever thrift a good shoe or boot.

Love your new hair color!


Such a pretty outfit love :)

Debbi@SheAccessorizesWell said...

I have never seen anything authentic Gucci except a scarf. What a find! Those are cool booties.
I love, love your pink hair. I'd love to do something like that myself, but here in the Middle of the US, I'd no doubt cause a few heart attacks.

Pam @ over50feeling40 said...

Obviously in my busyness, I missed something Ariane...I did not know your lost your job. I am so sorry to hear that, but have such hopeful expectations for you of what might lie ahead. I hope it includes filling some of your passions. Of course the looks are fun here, but I cannot take my eyes off the food!! My thoughts are with you!

nancyworegreenstockings said...

I love love love all your fantastic colour combinations! They're so wonderful and so often completely unexpected.

Yay you for making the best of a situation that can throw someone for a loop.

Patti said...

It's great to see ChouChou feeling like his old self. And you look fabulous in your colorful outfits for cooking! I never heard of nun's farts : >

fashionoverfifty said...

OMG I cant believe you lost your job! I hate when that happens! Altho it can be a good thing....
Love, love love all your outfits!

TiaLou said...

Bravoe Runway said...

What an amazing find! Gucci boots for $10 and you look great in coloured tights.

Forest City Fashionista said...

The meat pies sound delicious, and I love the idea of making "Nun's Farts"! You really are rocking the bold colours this week. Great score on the Gucci boots - looking forward to seeing them in a post. Stay positive and enjoy the holidays!

Heather said...

Sorry to hear about your job I can't remember if I had already said that or not...When one door closes another opens right!! looks like my hubby will be out a job soon as well wish I could be more positive about it ...I am working on it though :). ~You look adorable have a great Christmas!! Love Heather

Val Sparkle said...

Nun's farts? What's the recipe? No, maybe it's better not to know!

You should bake for a living - everything sounds great! And your colors are just amazing. You might inspire me to finally color my hair pink!

Megan Mae said...

Totally an awesome find with those boots! Routine is a good thing to keep when you're not working. It keeps your days structured. ;)

I absolutely adore your skirt in the first outfit, but all of your looks are so lovely and bright!

Aww, Your Chouchou is such a lovely little guy. Glad to hear he's doing better. Our kitty cat used to love sleeping under the tree. The kittens don't get a tree this year though because they're too wild!

Sacramento Amate said...

I adore your splash of colour and style always, my dear Ariane.

Ms. Dainty Doll said...

You look marvellous!! You make me want to put more colour in my wardrobe, really must do that in the New Year ;) All the food looks amazing...so tasty!! I hope you have a wonderful holiday time doll and take your time with what you wish to do next, all will work out for you, I know it!! Just keep smiling and enjoying yourself!! Lots of love for the holidays xx

sabine said...

hi ariane,

i wish my daily routine would go more in this healthy direction like yours. to start the day unhurried, with a fine breakfeast and some nice activities would be fine. i should try it during my holidays in the next two weeks.
your are fabulous with your positive attitude and in your fantastic outfits.
i can not tell you which is my favorite i like them all. because each of it is showing that you feel well and concious.
i hope you enjoy your days beneath the xmas tree like chouchou does.

The Grande Dame said...

Such colourful outfits, I think the one with the green jumper/sweater is my favourite. Your pink hair looks fantastic - I'm very envious!

Sue @ A Colourful Canvas said...

Hi Ariane, This post has everything I love in it! Food, particularly delicious tortierres (sp?), and the nuns' farts, too funny, and yummy. Red wine, an awesome thrifted find. I love those boots, kitties..I've got two and adore all felines, and eye candy - You! Your outfits always cheer me and inspire me. Can't wait to hear what's up for the new year!

Happy Christmas Ariane!

pastcaring said...

What a feast of colour and good living and cooking and wine and positivity!
Good for you, Ariane, getting into a routine and being busy sounds brilliant - with a little wine, of course!
Nuns farts - genius!
Looking forward to hearing what you decide about your future. xxxxx

Lakota [Faith Hope and Charity Shopping] said...

Hi and thanks for linking up - love the colour burst you've injected into the link up, your hair is amazing! And WHOOHOO to $10 Gucci boots!

Your cooking talk is making me hungry and I've already stuffed myself silly today.

CityScape Skybaby said...

Sorry to hear about your job Ariane but hoping it will lead to better opportunities for you. You look like you're having a great time anyway, I admire your cooking skills and would love to try nun's farts, I've never heard of them before! And those boots are such a great find, they'd be gorgeous even if they weren't Gucci, you were so lucky to find them before someone else snapped them up. Great to hear Izzy is doing well too. I will try to read her blog now, the pc is giving me a hard time, going super slow and freezing constantly so I'm trying to get as many comments out as possible while it lets me. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Ariane. xx

Diana Marks said...

Get the hell outta here!!!! Ten bucks for those gorgeous Gucci boots? I love them if they're Gucci or not of course, but I'm sure they'll last you a wonderfully long time! You put so much effort into your Christmas celebrations and looked so relaxed in the process:)).
