Happy Holidays all! Can you believe we’re two days away from Christmas? Eeek – I can’t! Nor can I believe that this year is within a week of being over. It feels like just yesterday that I was plagued with viral pink eye for almost two months straight (that was last January for me). This January is going to be much better…
what’s going on with me
I was on a blog hiatus for a few weeks as a result of a combo of school wrapping up and traveling. I was in Seattle for a few days and I forgot how much I love it there – it’s such a great city! It was freaking cold when we were there though – and I know understand the meaning of a “damp cold” – it really feels worse than the “dry cold” that I’m used to.
have you seen/tried/heard?
Damn you Apple! This commercial makes me tear up everytime! I love it though! 🙂
I want this but there’s no way in heck I’m making it – too much work! I’ll just order one from Starbucks thanks.
This is so hilarious and cute. Pandas are awesome, I want one.
This OGX Lotion has been saving my skin lately and it smells SO GOOD!
While in Seattle, I made a beeline for the Chukar Cherries stall in the Pike Place Market to pick up a bottle of this dessert sauce. It’s the most amazing topping for plain vanilla ice cream – I
could eat it by the spoonful!
I’m not usually one to wear Disney apparel, but I saw this super-soft sweater at Nordstrom Rack (sidenote – OMG I love Nordstrom Rack!) and it caught my eye because it looked warm and cozy. So I tried it on and it’s now my new favourite sweater. I feel like I’m walking around wearing a cozy blanket and I like that. A lot. I wish I had picked up one of each colour.
I was really excited to read The Girl on the Train as I heard it was similar to Gone Girl which I enjoyed. I was a little disappointed with it – I found it pretty predictable. I still want to watch the movie though.
Tati was raving about this Smashbox lipstick in one of her recent videos and I really love the shade. Not sure if it’ll work with my skintone but I’m willing to give it a try.
A good striped top is a wardrobe staple – like this one from Ricki’s!
I can’t wait to watch Sing over the holidays. The clip where the bunnies are dancing to Baby Got Back kills me everytime! #omglookatherbutt
I’m hoping to pick up a gingerbread house mold similar to this one on Boxing Day – I really want to make my own from scratch next year. I’m certain my first attempt will be a disaster but I think it’ll be so much fun to decorate it on my own terms, rather from a box.
favourite youtube video of the week
I haven’t watched many of these types of videos but this one is worth watching – it’s hilarious!
