Life Style | Link Up | featuring an office fashion show


Today's Life Style post was inspired by a trip that we went on this morning to one of the best places on the planet, Target. Me and the munchkins were on the hunt for two different kids' birthday presents and we ended up in my and Otto's favorite section to spend a nice half hour loitering - the books. I saw that little I Can Do It Myself book on the top/left there and fell in love with its sweet style. We picked some other books and workbooks more age appropriate to the kids we were shopping for but I came home inspired and during the kiddos' naps (bless their hearts they even napped at the same time today) I decided to scout all of my favorite online shops to share with you some truly charming kids books that are oozing style and also (timely!) would make great gifts this holiday season.

Even though I spotted I Can Do It Myself in-store at Target, I couldn't find it on their website but I did find it at Barnes & Noble as well as The Gruffalo which is supposed to be, just great. Q&A A Day for Kids is from Anthropologie; did you know they always carry great kids gifts at the holidays? Well they do! This little book asks an interview question like "describe the perfect secret hideout" every day for a year, but is laid out for three years worth of answers so that you can record the answers and then page through and see how your child's response varies year-to-year as they grow. I love this so much I couldn't resist and nabbed one! You can find the whole series of Moomin books, comic book style graphic novels full of humor and adventure, at Henri & Flora. If you are, or are shopping for, a collector of vintage children's books then look to Etsy for gems like Playtime Poodles that I found at Becca's Best Finds' shop. This little knit crown from Miniluu would be the perfect gift alone or tied up in a bundle with Where the Wild Things Are. And then at Land of Nod there are so many great titles including Not a Box which encourages imaginative thinking and Betty Crocker's Cook Book for Boys and Girls which is a cute little reproduction of the 1957 book.

The links are just for your convenience, non are affiliate links or anything interesting.

Life Style is a weekly feature I started last week. Each week I will also feature one person who participated in the previous week's link-up as well, and that person will get to choose who will be featured the following week. Last week Randalin from Harvesting Kale and her adorable son, Kale, were featured. Randalin chose this week's featured from everyone who linked up.

This week's featured lady is the lovely Katherine from Somewhere in the Middle (selected images via this post link). Katherine has been doing a no-repeat-outfit challenge at work. I would fail at that pretty quickly! But Katherine rocks it. You guys might remember that Katherine and I have crossed paths before; we live about 30 minutes from each other and get the kids together for playdates now and then and more importantly we eat burritos together. We are Burrito Amigos.


Clear the way! Hot mama comin' through! Even though she accidentally put on the wrong team's tee shirt on that third day. Forgivable. Thank you for being my feature this week, Katherine!

Ok guys... Now it's your turn! You can link up below to your recent style-related posts or style-related instagram pics. Katherine will choose one person from this week's links to be next week's "life style" feature. Yip!

But if you find yourself going off on long tangents about personal matters, it's time to get back on track. The whole professional vs. personal ratio also has to be calculated with your topic and target audience in mind. You should not, however, blog about anything that you wouldn't write in a business email.

Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.

Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about creating my own but
I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers

You must know that moving services not just means moving it refers to the whole
process of unloading and loading too. Plus, companies have
slowly learned that when they add up the costs associated with manufacturing overseas, they might as well pay American workers those union wages.
This could help in simplifying the moving process and keep your company so much cash in order to stop unnecessary financial waste.

2 litre VR6 engine, which outputs 250PS (247hp or 184k - W).
LSU Fiesta executives rated 40 mpg on the highway,
rather impressive figure for a vehicle using a conventional transmission.

It does cost more and is only available with a double
clutch automatic and front drive.

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems?

A number of my blog readers have complained about mmy blog
not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
Do yyou have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

Don't forget to make an appointment on your way out.
You probably find yourself gaining knowledge and coming to a place
where everything is working well for you at the given moment because of your newfound awareness,
but then it all falls apart again at the next moment. The internet
is also where you will find the lowest prices and best deals on tanning
products of all varieties, allowing you to easily browse enormous collections and find reviews before you buy, and to fill your
cart with a selection of the best self tanners available at unbeatable prices.

Once you find a mask you like, you should stick with it.
In the 1960s when many people were becoming the victims of sunburn and skin cancer for the sake of Suntan, this method became very popular as a safe alternative to
sunbathing. There are so many different options for
people to be able to get a natural looking tan using artificial methods.

In the league of hair care products, its risk
free trial and consumer testimonials are the talk of the town. Choosing
a good conditioner that is right for you can keep hair healthy in the long run. There are a
number of lasers used to remove locks like Ruby aesthetic laser, Alexandrite laser,
Pulsed diode array, Aragon aesthetic laser as well as Nd:YAG.

The IRS may use their Internal Revenue Service Wage Levy to seize a percentage of
your paycheck. So you want to be focused when choosing a suitable accountancy firm.

Many expats believe that because their foreign earned income is
below the exclusion limit they do not need to file a return.
