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.

Summer Brain

I’m playing some serious catch up in my life and career right now.  I guess that’s what happens when you spend your days off in a no-ambition-but-to-lunch-drink and-lounge-by-a-pool haze.

My project list is advancing before my very eyes and I keep taking on more.  Case in point, my bubble chandelier project? What happened there? The material still sits stilly on my floor in its original Home Depot bag.  Then there’s the lovely jewellery organizer, I have all the tangibles to create the perfect home to keep my gems organized, do you think I have even entertained the adventure? Nope.  I have e-mails that need responses and writing to be submitted.  I’m behind people.

I’d rather be doing other things…Like strutting down the side-walk in a breezy skirt and cute heels, window shopping then breaking for lunch!

This is just another symptom of summer brain..

Strutting it with the girls…

I’d get blisters for these…

Window shopping….

The dog days are over, I need to get my sh*t together.  At least until my  summer holidays begin.
