Livie & Luca’s Fall/Winter 2011 Collection: Cowboy Boots, Patent Shoes Trimmed With Suede & A New Line For Mama!

When Livie & Luca came out with their adorable Bloom shoes a couple of years ago I instantly fell in love. Those cute little leather flowers on peep toe sandals – it was too cute to handle. Since then they’ve come up with several variations but my favorite has to be the latest from their Fall/Winter line.

One of our favorites is the black and grey Blossom shoe. L&L has combined the softness of suede with a bright shiny patent leather and created a sweet pair of Mary Janes that are so darn sweet, your daughter won’t want to take them off (I’m speaking from experience here).

Top Family Weekend Getaway Destinations In Ontario ~ Part 1

(source)

Growing up across the border from Detroit in Windsor, Ontario, families tend to spend more time in the US vacationing than in Canada. It costs sometimes triple to book a flight to Vancouver than it costs to book a flight to California through Detroit. Economically it just made sense to go to the US, plus it warms up a bit quicker in the Southern States, which led to a soft spot in my heart for America that has carried through to adulthood.

Since having kids, my desire for weekend getaways has greatly increased, and this had led to a new found appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us here in Ontario. The size of Ontario is comparable to the state of Texas, or over 4 times the size of the UK. It’s a huge Province, and it is full of culture, a variety of landscapes, and gorgeous Great Lakes.

Below I have rounded-up Part 1 of our Best of the Best Weekend Getaway Destinations, where there is something for everyone! In no particular order…:
