And we’re back! I hope you all had a fun filled Christmas with lots of wonderfulness and joy! Was Santa good to you?? We definitely got spoiled on this side of the globe!
I want to hear what your favourite gift was!! Some of my favourites- Chanel Coffee table book, Crystal Bow Eddie TB flats, extra long sheer shirt dress from Aritzia- Oh and my gold polka dot iPhone case… just to name a few!! :)
Plus a family diamond from my grandfather, that my mom and hubby reset into a dainty necklace for me. I adore it. I loved the combination of new and old this Christmas! Made it that much more special!
There was lots of food, lots of family, lots of treats and lots of screaming children! Just the way we like it! :)

Anyhow, I can imagine that we are all crazy busy this time of year! Especially this week! Can you believe Christmas is THIS weekend?? I can’t.

For the past few weeks every time someone asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I honestly didn’t have a clue what I wanted this year! HOWEVER after finished up my Christmas shopping last night, I saw a TON of things that I loved! Note to self: Start Christmas shopping extra early next year to have a better idea what to ask for! Quite honestly, I don’t need any of these things! But since you’re all asking! ;) Why not make today’s post about what I wouldn’t mind getting! ;)
If you know me, I like practical. I like jewellery. I like accessories. And I like when people go in a gift for those more $$ items that I typically wouldn’t buy for myself. Yes, my husband would more then agree- I’m not easy to shop for. I agree. I am not.
On that note. I hope this post brought a little smile to your face. Don’t you love Christmas shopping?! It can be so easy and fun! not. okay.. sometimes!
Happy Shopping! Only 10 days left till Christmas!!
