morning glory anyone?

Ahhhhh Monday you always come too soon, too soon! Morning routines….got one? Here’s mine!

My Blackberry Zen chimes every weekday morning at 5:30.  After a couple of (well-deserved) snoozes, I arise….

Monday-Friday makeup

One of the main things on my ‘to-do’ list today was to get a new eyeshadow primer. My current fave, Naked Beauty by Smashbox was sold out at my local Shopper’s Drug Mart. I had every intention of trekking to Sephora to get a new one.  That is, until I decided to organize my makeup bags, and YES I said BAGS (plural).

Well of course, I have figured out that I have a lot of makeup-and it’s great stuff!  I have selected the everyday products that I use for work.  It was a lot more than I thought!  Take a peek-I have numbered it all and will talk about it that way!

breakfast anyone? Chi-ko-roo on Church!

Hey everybody gets hungry right? Even me! I have walked by this place 123425456976 times of course but have never stopped in! This morning, Chi-Ko-Roo won the draw (or the rock-paper-scissors, whichever you fancy).  Did some quick Internet researching for reviews (this place doesn’t have a website) and was a bit skeptical.  Wanting to be true to my ‘I’ll try anything once’ mentality, I took the risk.

Here’s the inside…..after arriving just past 10am:

Inside Chi-Ko-Roo

Not too shabby, right?  Perhaps because this is a former Il Fornello? Whatever the case, our friendly (and foreign) waiter, quickly brought 2 cups of coffee (smart man) and took our order.  The food came 5 minutes later, and yes I time those types of things! This may be due to myself and beau being the only people there-but awesome nonetheless!

Here is the food:

Great food….quick service, and a fancy fruit shish to finish it off! Sounds good to me!  Normally, a Sunday morning (or late morning meal) includes several mimosas but since I have training with George this afternoon (you will meet him soon), I decided against that….

Yes I will return to Chi-Ko-Roo!

p.s. If you are admiring my manicure (and you should be), you can thank Nails by Natalie.  You will meet her soon too!

Hello world!

Yes hello hello! I know there isn’t much here, but take a wander over to ‘About Meredith’…you won’t be disappointed!

I am feverishly working on awesome content at this very moment….stay tuned!
