Holiday Outfit #3: Glam!

22.12.14


Only 3 more days until Christmas! I saved the best outfit for last, and this one is by far my favourite. I don't have nearly enough fancy events to have warranted purchasing this dress, but I have no regrets! This is a total glam outfit that can be repeated all year round. Add a red lip and red nails and you've got a fab holiday outfit. Keep reading for more photos and outfit details!

The Weekend Edit Vol. 24

21.12.14



Only 4 more days until Christmas! Eeeeeek!!!
Sorry for the late post, but this weekend has been busy with holiday parties and trying to see everyone who's home for the holidays. So I'm going to keep this one short and sweet and leave you with a couple cool things I found this week. Hope you're enjoying the last weekend before Christmas!

Tamira has some great last minute gift ideas. I would love getting any of these!

I am totally crushing over Anna's holiday dress. I'm trying to think of any event/excuse to buy it. Must. Resist. Temptation!

I have been sharing this one with everyone this week as it's just too good. The Hater's Guide to the William Sonoma Catalogue. Because a regular pot just isn't good enough for hot chocolate. Trust me, you will be in tears laughing ;) Quick! Get the goat cheese frittata pan!

Anyone brave the stores this weekend? Any cool holiday parties? I've definitely eaten too much!

DIY Holiday Garland

17.12.14


I love everything about the holidays, but for some reason I wasn't very inclined to decorate my own space for my first Christmas there last December. I guess cause it's small, I'm away for the first bit of December, and it's just me anyway. But this year I decided to fill it with a bit more festive cheer. I've got a mini tree (seriously, it's drowning in presents it's so small), a wreath that my bestie made for me last year, and I whipped up this DIY garland last week. It's super easy to make, so keep reading for the instructions!

Holiday party season is upon us! One of my favourite things about this time of year is the opportunity to bust out my fancy gear and get all dolled up. I've got a total of 3 outfits to share with you over the next week or so, and the first is this plum-colorer jumpsuit. Keep reading for more photos!

The Weekend Edit Vol. 23

14.12.14



Ah Sunday: the day of rest, which is exactly what I'm doing! I've been feeling poorly all week, and back to work after coming home from Brussels didn't help much. Then the slew of holiday luncheons started on Friday, and the first of 3 Christmas parties was last night. Today I have no plans other than cleaning up my loft and trying to finally kick this cold out the door.

I did find some cool bits on the internet this week, so check 'em out!

The Beauty Department broke down "the lob" for all those thinking of making the big chop. Do it!

WhoWhatWear had some great tips for packing winter clothes for all those going away to a not so south destination this winter.

Need entertaining at your office party? Pay attention to what people are wearing says about them...

And finally, if Wes Anderson were to direct the upcoming Star Wars. I want to see his version too!

Brussels Photo Diary

12.12.14



Bonjour! I'm back from Belgium (unfortunately with a cold) and I've got a bit of a photo diary for you today. Brussels was beautiful and what I liked most of all was how walkable it was. Everything was within walking distance and it was easy to explore most of the city in a day. Keep reading for more photos!

Planning a Christmas Menu

8.12.14


Just over 2 weeks until Christmas, what a perfect time to talk about planning a Christmas menu! It's not secret that I love to cook and bake, and so I've been in charge of the Christmas menu for the last several years. One thing that makes it easy is that the most we've ever been for Christmas is 8 people, but it's still my dream to host a massive Christmas dinner one year. Here are some over the best tips I've learned over the past couple years!
