The Weekend Edit Vol. 63


Long time no blog! Between getting sick right after the holidays, and a busy couple of weeks back work, I'm desperately trying to get back into the swing of things over here (case in point: I only just put my Christmas decorations away on Friday. Oops!). I'm house/dog-sitting for my folks for the next week, so hopefully this will give me a chance to catch up on, well, everything!

I'm also super happy to announce that I'm now a regular contributor over at Julius + Valentina! Ariane and I spend so much time together as it is anyways, so we figured we might as well make it productive ;).

Off to run some errands, so check out these links below:

The ultimate test of packing flat vs. rolling your clothes. I'm quite surprised with the results!

This recipe sounds amazing! Makes me want to get a slow cooker.

I do quite a bit of solo travel for work, but I'm currently planning my first solo vacation for this spring. These are some great tips for travelling solo.

Another great recipe: Cast iron chocolate chip cookies for 2!

The ultimate Get Ready With Me video: Emily Weiss!

Did you see this story about the autistic barista at Starbucks in Toronto? Stories like this melt my heart.

Currently crushing on the pre-spring releases from Aritzia *insert heart-eyes emoji*

What are you up to this weekend?

p.s. any good book recommendations? I'm looking to start adding to this year's reading list :)

The Weekend Edit Vol. 62 (Looking back on 2015)


Happy New Year everyone! I hope you've all had lovely holidays, filled with all of your favourite things. I've spent most my 2 weeks off at the cottage, sleeping in, making coffee, and reading my way through a couple of books while sitting in front of the fire. Not sure I'm quite ready to go back to work tomorrow.

As we rang in 2016, I did a bit of reflecting on my goals for the upcoming year, but also everything I accomplished for this space in the past year. This blog is by no means my full-time endeavour, but it's a great hobby that brings me much joy. In 2015, I focused more on quality posts rather than quantity, worked with my first brand, and met some amazing new bloggers through the blogging community.

Some of my OOTDs from 2015 (Top row: 1, 2, 3, Middle row: 1, 2, 3, Bottom row: 1, 2, 3)

2015 was also a great year for travel for me, which I hope will continue into this year, and all of my trips were definitely the highlight of the year for me. You can keep up with my travels over on Instagram, with the hashtags #KrisTravels and #LLLTravels.

Top row: San Diego, San Francisco, Chicago
Middle Row: Tampa, Orlando, Toronto
Bottom row: Toronto, Boston, Hawaii (Hawaii 2016 has been booked!!)

For 2016, I've got some crazy projects going on at work, that will take a small miracle to pull off but are great for my career, and I hope to work on my photography skills. I'm not really one for resolutions, but I guess those are two of my broad goals.

What have you been up to during the holidays? Read any good books for recommendation? What are your goals/resolutions for 2016?
