Spotlight: A Little Nook of Holiday Heaven

Distillery TO Style Bargains

The greatest cure for stress is honestly an overdose of cheesy commercial in-your-face holiday spirit that comes in the form of dancing elves who pose for pictures. It’s almost a breath of fresh air to hear people shouting at you from spiced apple cider vendors. No thank you but please keep that cheer up.

I’m super duper excited to be back in the DIY game. It’s been a while since my last one (all of which you can find here) – so I hope my skills haven’t rusted over. Ha, not possible 😉 Nonetheless, I hope you like this one as much as I enjoyed making it.

Alright, we’re doing the weekly recap a bit differently this time around in the form of a collage. It’s more organized and visually pleasing, no? It’s been a whirlwind of

1. Thank you Tiger of Sweden for opening up a new shop and inviting me to take a sneak peek. Men, are you ready for this bold, bold blazer?

Drankkkkks with my ride or die at Cube in celebration of Contiki Legends where I got to interview Gunnarolla and his amazing adventures. I was drinking straight O to the J.

2. FIRST SNOW DAY. Very exciting stuff so I snapped a quick pic and completely forgot about frostbite or the fact that my footgear was inappropriate. I swear it’s not uncontrollable dandruff.

Yes, tons of shopping and giving and receiving. I couldn’t wait for Black Friday and the deals at Toronto Premium Outlets were too good to pass up. Shout outs are in order for shuttling my cold bum there and back and putting a hot chocolate in my hands! I loved meeting all the hip mommy bloggers (so much love and excitement).

3. Instagram share: pretty leaves, pretty macarons and pretty (also seriously good) donuts to commemorate my last day at the company! I’ll miss you ladies *_*

I was fortunate to preview the Alexander Wang x HM collection before it launched to the public last week and my purchase came with an extra surprise jersey. Let me say that if Alexander Wang tells you to “WEAR THIS”, I’m going to happily embrace my inner tomboy.

Thank goodness for relatively warm days in November or I would have frozen to death shooting this. Any chance Mother Nature can spare us a few more? *Sigh* I doubt it. Well, did you have a favourite Wang piece? (I’m seriously never going to get tired of saying his last name)

People know BLACKS as the store that sells photo frame thingys and an assortment of flashy cameras. The store space itself had a super serious/old fashioned interior which was kinda intimidating for photographer newbies. Well, BLACKS has said “NO MORE!”. Their revamped stores are now vibrant photography showrooms that make you want to rip pieces off the wall and mount them on your own. Wanna see what I mean?
