Brrrrr

There was a little frost on the pumpkin this morning. (Seriously. My pumpkin is still on my stoop. Don’t judge. It’s cute and it hasn’t fallen in on itself yet.) It was frosty enough for the (gasp) scraper on the car windshield.

Frosty weather is perfect for a little pip. Ya know? Pip Robins.


Pip Robins is a logical choice when the weather cools off. Designer and creator Gillian Hyde has been making and perfecting her cowls here in Halifax since 2009. After seeing a fella struggle against the wind with a bandana to keep warm, the tubular, over-the-head accessory was born. The Pip Robins line has grown from her signature unisex plaid cowls to include unique, limited edition appliqued varieties as well as lace and  embellished flowers. Gillian takes care to choose sustainable fabrics (often recycled) wherever possible and has a variety of choices from a cozy plaid and hardy herringbones to romantic lace and pretty satin flowers.

Now – don’t those look cozy?? And easy to wear! Come on in and see for yourself.

Yummy Noodles

Like any proud carrier of Irish and English heritage, I love me some carbs. True I adore veggies and fruits, but when it comes to the “guts” of a meal, I do love a big ol’ pile of saucy noodles. Yup. Be them Chinese, Japanese, Italian, or German – I heart noodles.

So it is really no surprise that a great new Love, Me product has won my heart. My cool weather comfort food is noodles and now my cool weather comfort accessory is…well…noodles??  Neck noodles are a fun necklace/scarf/ridiculously fun accessory made right here in the ‘Fax and available at Love, Me. Neck noodles are made from up-cycled premium tshirts and gathered in a way that makes wearing them both easy and fun. (Seriously there are a crazy number of ways to wear the noodles.) With plenty of solid or tie-dyed colours to choose from, the noodles with add both zing to an outfit & comfort to a style.

Just like its pasta namesake, no matter how you loop it, scoop it or swoop it, its delish!

P.S.  Neck Noodles are not restricted to cool weather. I am just being a tad grumpy today about the weather forecast. Hey! I have high (and perhaps unrealistic) hopes for my summer weather.
