Announcement!

I have some pretty cool news (in my opinion anyway...)! I've been trying to think of ways to really connect with you all and I had the perfect idea! This December, I will be doing vlogmas! That means from the first of December to Christmas, you will be able to follow me around through vlogs! How exciting! 


I've created a youtube channel where you can subscribe to my vlogs! I am really excited to do this - and I hope you will join me for vlogmas!

Tech Gloves

It's really starting to get cold in Windsor, which means I'm wearing my scarves and gloves on a daily basis. I need to able to use my touch screen devices in the cold, which is an issue with normal gloves. Enter the tech glove! Equipped with special technology within the fingertips, tech gloves makes it easy to use touch screen devices in cold weather!

Here are some of my top picks:

Secret Santa for Men: Gifts Under $20

Yesterday, we talked about Secret Santa gifts under $20 for ladies - but we can't forget about the men in our lives! I think it's pretty hard to shop for men - especially with a $20 price limit, so here are my top choices: 






Argyle socks


5" Globe - Mustard


I think these are all fun and fairly practical gifts that the men in your life would enjoy!

Cold Weather Approved Skincare

When it starts getting cold - my skin really suffers. I have naturally dry skin and cold, dry air makes it 10 times worse!

I really have to focus on moisture during the colder months. I rely on three products to keep my skin as moisturized as possible: 


#

C.O Bigelow - Lemon Lip Creme
Philosophy - Hope in a Jar
The Body Shop - Vitamine E Eye Cream

Hope in a Jar can be pretty expensive - but it really keeps your skin moisturized for the whole day, but isn't greasy. I think it's completely worth the price tag! The eye and lip cream are very affordable - and do a great job keeping your lips and that delicate skin under your eyes hydrated!

What are you cold weather skin must haves?

Changes

First I'd like to apologize for Friday's mishap - I'm still not entirely sure what happened!

I begin this post with the fact that my favourite string of pearls broke last night. This might not mean much to you, but it really means a lot to me. 

Change to change

For so long these pearls had been my go to necklace - something familiar, and suddenly they were just gone.  I'm starting to realize that I need to make some changes in my life. I don't know how or where - but I know it needs to happen. 

It's always tough breaking away from the familiar, but I suppose that's also the beauty of change.

Gadabout

I stumbled across Gadabout a few days ago and have been addicted ever since. My love for stationery is no secret - but Gadabout is special. Everything is so dainty and the monograms are so subtle.

iWant

I've wanted an iPad for a while now. I don't want one just for the sake of having one, though. I am a relatively busy person and sometimes it would be nice not to have to carry around my (fairly heavy) laptop to every meeting or event. I also travel quite a bit - and since the iPad has a pretty good battery life, it would come in handy for the long train rides home. 




Not only is it functional, there are just too many adorable cases and accessories available!
