The Weekend Edit Vol. 61


It's official, we're less than a week away from Christmas! Eeeeeek!! Between coming back from Orlando this week, jumping right back into work, and all of the holiday parties, I've been busy!

This year's annual ALS/MND symposium was in Orlando, Florida, and so I took full advantage of our close proximity to Disney World to extend my trip to visit with my old pal Mickey Mouse. It had been a couple years since I'd been to Disney World, and as someone who consistently went every year growing up, my inner kid was unleashed and I had a blast! You can see some photos on Instagram.

This year's conference was a week later than it normally is, so it totally threw me off my schedule, and came back to Christmas party madness, and shopping left to be done. I'm thankful to have gotten to spend some time this week with friends before the holidays, including my soul sister Ariane. If you don't read her blog Julius + Valentina, you definitely need to check her out! This year she organized a holiday beauty drive to donate gift bags to local women's shelters in Montreal. I am so proud of her, and look forward to supporting her again next year. Read more about it here.

I've got a giant cake to finish for tonight's party (and don't judge me for watching Love Actually for a second time this weekend), so I'll leave you with some links to check out:

With all of the impending family time over the holidays, I'm going to be referring to this list of excuses for why I'm single :P

Love this hair tutorial for the holidays! Simple yet chic!

A piece on red lipstick.

Instagram husband. Probably the most epic video I've seen all year.

Lisa Eldridge released another incredible tutorial this week, with an Elizabeth Taylor transformation. I love this vintage, glam look!

I love Jimmy Fallon and the Roots, and this Star Wars A Cappella with the cast of Episode 7 is essentially what is keeping me sane until I see the movie this week.

And in case you're looking for some last minute gift ideas, check out my gift guides (here, here, and here), as well as my DIY gifts for the hostess.

Happy pre-Christmas Weekend!!



  1. I'm so glad to see the cake turned out! (No, I won't stop talking about it until I can try it.) I'm glad Orlando was fun! I'm going in three weeks, and even though I won't be at Disney, I'm so excited for the warm weather. Merry Christmas Kristiana!

    1. I can't wait to hear how the cake turns out if you make it!! It's definitely a crowd pleaser.
      Merry Christmas and enjoy your time in the sun!

  2. Going away right before the Holidays set me back, too! I've been busily trying to catch up. Only a few more days! Enjoy xx


    1. Haha glad I'm not the only one who has been set back in their holiday schedule!
