So, I dropped a little tease-a-roo last month about some epically awesome ssssshtuff that was going down in the land of Hue La La…

And I’m super stoked to finally be able to share the first yummy slice of the pie!

Before I toss the confetti, this post comes with a disclaimer…

Although I’m still pretty new to this blogging thang, I am acutely aware that there are peeps out there who think that some bloggers are a-lot-a-bit too narcissistic and might as well be writing for “”…(thanks to Vicky Sanderson for that wicked zinger a la The Facebook today ;)) ….so, if this is you, discontinue reading now…do not pass GO…do not collect $200!

I’m about to do some toot-tooting of my own horn…


Back in August I received a random phone call from a PR company who was reaching out on behalf of their “client”.  This mystical client was interested in working with little ‘ole me to launch their new colourfully chic tech product, and of course my interest was seriously peeked!!!

But I had no idea what awesome-tastic-ness was about to unfold…

Intro the client… Canon-logo-2012[1] SHA-BANG!

Oh yeah…the maker of my beloved EOS Rebel T3 that I got from Santa last Christmas (aka…bought for myself).

I know that this will appear like some serious tuckus smooching, but I was already a huge fan of the brand before I got “the call”.  So to find out that THEY wanted to work with ME was an uber YIPPEEEEEEE moment!!!

“Okay, okay Leigh-Ann….get to the point”

Canon Canada was in the midst of putting together a national commercial for their new line of fashionably functional all-in-one PIXMA printers that just happen to come in a fab collection of colours (…and, er…well, colour is kind of my thing, right?!)

So, in September, I was so honored to be asked to lend my mug to their campaign!!

Lights, Canon camera, action…

 On-set…say cheese!

And without further adieu (toot toot)…


If you happen to be surfin’ the boob tube in the coming weeks, then you just might catch the 1-minute version of the commercial on HGTV, Slice, Food Network and Show Case, to name a few!

I love how Canon believes that technology should integrate seamlessly into your décor, and there really is a colourful printer to suit every personality and space.  I happen to adore this red little gem…

red pixma

So my question is….what Canon PIXMA hue are you???

Why do I ask?!  Well, I want to give one away to YOU!  Well, hopefully you!!

I’ll be randomly drawing for one Canon PIXMA all-in-one printer, and you have 3 fab ways to enter…

1.  Leave a comment below telling me a wee bit about your style and which colour of PIXMA would be perfect for you

2.  Tweet the following…

Live colourfully and win a @Canon_Canada #PIXMA all-in-one printer via @LeighAnnAllaire by visiting #HueLaLa 

(***Be sure to add a hashtag at the end of the tweet with your printer colour of choice ie. #Red)

3. Show Hue La La a little Facebook love, and “LIKE” our page, then leave a comment telling me which PIXMA printer colour you’re craving

Giveaway eligibility ends at 11:59pm EST on October 31, 2013, and is only open to residents of Canada (for now…sorry to my US peeps).


Oh, and the fun just doesn’t stop there on my wicked Canon Canada ride…  I’ll be sliding back in front of the camera again this week, so keep your eyeballs peeled on the tele for more of my mug in November!

And on that note…I’m done jibber jabbering about myself….for now!  Bahahaha!!

Toot, toot!

But before I bust out of here for today, I’m-a-gonna bust a move in my kitchen to this…. HEY YA!

Have a good one, and don’t forget to live colourfully!!

    I love the clean crisp look of the white! and it would go great in my space. Although I love the red I tend towards clean classic lines and colours that blend when it comes to office equipment and tech.

  2. missbobloblaw says:

    I am a great mix of clean and classic with a punch of unique thrift shop whimsy. I think the black printer would fit right in!

  3. Londia says:

    I am a simple but classic but sometimes want different kind of person. Sometimes an added touch of colour can do so much. So I would have to say I would go with the brown.

      Love that printer- done with boring black- the sleek red one would be perfect for my home office! I like colour in the space I work-it keeps me smiling!

  5. Leah says:

    My style is Scandinavia meets vintage modern meets mid century. I love clean lines and adore pops of colour and warmth here and there. I love the glow of white walls, light floors and a feeling of calm infused with life. I think the white printer would best suit my style!

  6. Elaine Jasvins says:

    I would have to go with the black to go along with black leather chairs in my office.

  7. Renee says:

    OMG congrats! This is HUGE! I would love me the white one – clean, crisp and gorg!

  8. Melissa Finn says:

    I like simple but elegant. I love the classic look which I love the classic black printer.

  9. Angela says:

    Congrats girl! I can’t imagine how exciting that would be!! Keep it up!

  10. Hooray! That’s so exciting, although I am not surprised they picked you! :)

  11. Vicki says:

    classic style, therefore black.

  12. JennBS says:

    Congrats – so exciting!! Love the white one (would totally dig a turquoise one if that were an option, maybe next time Canon? 😉 ) !! I love clean, modern lines and lots of contrast!

  13. JennBS says:

    Liked & commented on Facebook!

  14. vicky says:

    Love a punch of colour like the red one!! What a great contest.

  15. Tracy says:

    I love the red! Working all day in my basement office, right now I have a black canon PIXMA that I have had for over 2 years, a red one would definitely add some pow! to my office!

  16. Christine Parsons says:

    Congratulations!!! I love earth tones, so I would go with the brown.

  17. Anabel, a Moreira says:

    Congratulations…I also love my canon EOS 60D!!!my style is totally traditionally classic.. a red PIXMA (for a pop of colour) would fit in perfectly with my style.

    Love, love love the red!

  19. Laura Selles says:

    I love the red! Bright, vibrant & it would bring a great energy to my working space!

  20. I like things that are modern, clean, and minimal. I like the red PIXMA

  21. fatema says:


    i love the red pixma, its classic which is something I always consider when making purchases to ensure it isn’t something I will get sick of a few months later.

  22. Vanessa says:

    I like to think of my design as eclectic and clean – traditional bones with nods to mid-century, industrial, and LOTS of white. I think the white Pixma is gorgeous! Such a fun giveaway, lady :)

  23. Linda says:

    The classic black would look great in the small office nook in my kitchen – the kitchen has cream cupboards.

  24. yoko says:

    Hmm..not sure what my style is. I love contemporary style but that’s not what my space looks like, with 2 young kids… I like a mix of old and new. White one looks so crisp and beautiful !

  25. Lindsay says:

    I should have commented when I watched the video – but YAY!!!!! Love Canon, Love you, so perfect fit. xo

  26. Virginia says:

    Just found you on the web while looking for ikat stencils. Saw your cityline segment about your bath and continued to browse. What a refreshing person you are. Polished speaker and designs are great too. Good for you on the Canon commercial. You definitely spoke my language and made me want to purchase one. Best wishes!

  27. Ilona Kiss says:

    Though most things I love are white, in this case, this beauty would live in my gorgeous contemporary diningroom/office and so, it has to be sleek black for me (please:)!
