I was browsing through Chapters over the weekend and I must say I am super impressed with their home and style items this season. Since we’ve officially entered December, I thought it would probably be a good idea to start Christmas shopping. I wish I was one of those keeners that have everything bought and wrapped before eggnog lattes are back at Starbucks. Anyhoos, here are a few of my favourite picks! Have a nice day! =) xo
Shoes: Nine West
Shoe accessory: BCBG
Clutch: Lord & Taylor
Happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine consisted of cleaning up the place, taking our parents out for dinner and finally putting our Christmas tree up. Yes, I say finally because I usually have it up by November 1st. My friends call me crazy but I get into Christmas mode even before Halloween. Its just one of those holidays I absolutely love. After all our hard work, the hubs and I decided we deserved a long overdue date night. I got dressed up (understatement of the year) and went out for a lovely dinner. My look consists of a vintage lace dress topped off with a velvety cropped tuxedo blazer and finished off with bejeweled satin ruby heels. Cheers to a great week ahead! xo
Warning: these are dangerously addictive! They’re sweet, crunchy and salty! I love giving these out as gifts during holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas. Seal them tight in small jars, tie a cute polka dot ribbon around it and voila, you have a homemade sentiment to bring over to someone’s house. Oh, and did I mention they’re super easy to make? =) Enjoy!!
