My Holiday Wishlist

Wishlist 2014

'Tis the season to be jolly. Fa la la la la, la la la la...

It's December and we all know what that means. Christmas gifts! To be honest I'm not really coveting for anything as much this year. I guess I'm pretty content on what I have right now so I thought why don't I invest on pieces that will last me a lifetime. Plus, I have other plans for the next couple of years ;)

Magnified Barbie

During the summer, I was literally obsessed with crop tops (and I still am). Now that I think about it, I think they are the second most purchased item that have been added to my closet this year. First were shoes, obviously. It doesn't matter anyway. I love pairing them with high waisted bottoms. AND they can either be dresses up or dressed down. I feel like whenever I buy a piece of clothing, I always say to myself, "I can wear this to some kind of event if I pair it with this or on a lazy casual day if I wear it with that." Which is actually a really good thing. I look for versatile pieces to mix and match.

Feeling the Holiday Spirit

Right before the last weekend of November, I headed to the dollar store and Walmart to buy some Christmas-themed bits and pieces. Most people prefer putting up the Christmas decorations in December or after Thanksgiving but I wanted to start decorating early before my schedule gets too hectic due to the holiday season. I've yet to finish the walls of the apartment so here's a preview of some of the stuff I've done. My family has always had red and gold themed tree. This year, I kind of "bent the tradition" and decided to have a silver motif Christmas tree. I added blues and pinks as well. So glad it turned out to be pretty good! Although the rest of the place has red and gold decorations.

PHOTO DIARY | TO Xmas Market

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock. Jingle bells swing and jingle bells sing ...
... What a bright time, it's the right time to rock the night away

It's the last weekend of November. Who's ready for Christmas season?? Because I am! Last night was the opening night of Toronto Christmas Market at the Distillery District (55 Mill Street). I've heard of this three-week long festivity since it started back in 2010 and I've always wanted to go. It was my first time and I was very excited because people have been saying so many positive reviews about it. AND THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. I headed there pretty early - probably around 3pm - to take photos before it gets dark and crowded with people. As night time comes, it was like the place was transformed (or maybe we got transported, who know) into a magical realm. Christmas lights were on. Families, friends, and lovers were all over checking out local artisan shops, craft beers, handmade gifts, and of course.. FOOD.
