All I Want to Wear for Christmas

So lookit. It’s been a long time. I get that you’re probably wondering if I’ve crawled into a cave with Channing Tatum, but the truth is, he’s married. I know you don’t want to hear excuses, but I wrapped up my 7 year corporate career, took some time to smell the hydrangeas, discovered a few new things about myself, and slept. A lot. Or slept-walked through the shoe department at Holt Renfrew, but listen: I’m back.

And I feel amazing.

For those of you that loyally read this mess, it’s true that this time of year makes me giddy as hell. I don’t know if its the pretty little flakes falling outside my window, perhaps its the catchy jingle with Mariah Carey and Jimmy Fallon that’s lighting up my iPod, or the excitement of dressing a little glamorous and wearing sequins and Ruby Woo to all the holiday parties? Whatever it is, can you blame me, It’s such a peaceful, sparkly, cheerful time of year!

As I sit here tapping my sequin slippers to “All I want for Christmas” I want to share with you a little compilation of “All I want to wear for Christmas”. Warning: textured tights, sparkly shoes, sequin trimmed blazer, and gold ahead – might cause rapid heart beat, excessive smiling and holiday fever.

Sometimes you just need to stop and smell the hydrangeas, slip into something sequin and shake your little a*s to some Christmas tunes to get in the spirit.

17 Days……

Some mornings catch me off guard. I sit down at my laptop to write and…nothing. Absolutely nothing comes to mind. So today I will write about nothing. Just like I do every other day, but today I’m acutely aware of it.

This week I totally caught the Christmas bug, which was spurred by a Starbucks holiday beverage and a 2 hour shopping fling at The Bay – that store has amazing Christmas cheer and some pretty bad as* sales.  I frolicked about the store humming away to the holiday classics, sipped my spiked spiced latte, crossed off a few items on my list and bought some ornaments to accent my cream and gold, I went off path, selecting an assortment of colored decorations instead of simply choosing a third color….. Maybe next year I’ll swap out gold for silver? I’m so unpredictable.

Here are more reasons as to why I caught a case of the Christmas bug…

Ryan Gosling for Christmas…yes please!

This might have been me while getting my mini tree together?

I love the chevron tablecloth mixed with the holiday decorations and that fur thrown over the chair – fabulous.

Glowing.

This ever so cute couple…Perfect for a personalized Christmas card

Cuteness….

But who’s counting?

Have you caught a case of the holiday bug?
