There's nothing like it.  Backroads.  Small towns.  Friendly folks.  Camping.  Boating.  Lakes.  Rivers.  Bonfires.  Hikes.  Forests.  Wildlife.  Mountain climbing.   Fresh air.  Casual clothes.  Wide open spaces.  Freedom.  It is all a part of country living.  In fact, it is.....Country Liberty.  

Today, we are shining the spotlight on the Canadian lifestyle brand, Country Liberty.  With its roots in New Brunswick, this company was born out of a passion and appreciation for our beautiful country and the freedom that is found within it.  With an emphasis on country and small town living, Country Liberty appeals to everyone who has country in their hearts.

STYLE FILE: Miadia Stiletto Heels From Aldo


Miadia Bone Heels from Aldo
 Calling all Divas! It's that time of year again. Time to show off your feet and pretty toenail art with trendy open-toe heels. We are totally smitten with these new Miadia stiletto heels from Aldo. They come in two sophisticated color styles, Bone and Natural Multi. We are always on a quest for beautiful shoes and when we happened upon this gem of a Canadian retailer a few weeks ago, we ended up spending several hours selecting our next shoe purchases on their website. Aldo is known as "the destination for style-conscious shoppers" and when we found their Miadia heels, with corset lacing and curvy appeal, we fell in love at first sight. These shoes can fashionably freshen up an outfit and take your look from ordinary to extraordinary.

Present mom with a tray of prettiness for Mother's Day
 Mother's Day will soon be here.  Have you thought about what you are going to do for Mom yet?  Keep in mind, it is not about what you buy.  It is about what you do.  It is about finding a way to show her that she is valued, treasured, cherished, and loved.  No need to spend a gazillion dollars but do make certain that you put plenty of thought and care into your gifts and presentation.
