I’m dreaming of a fashionable Christmas

It’s so strange that I live in Canada and already it’s December 23 and we still haven’t seen snow that has lasted more than a few hours.

Now the past few years for Christmas I’ve been lucky enough to pick my own gifts, well in a way. I get taken out to shop and my mom decides which pieces she wants to give to me. This year I think I’m most excited for either my boyfriend blazer or my black sequin mini skirt.

While it is good idea that I’ve invested in both staple and fun pieces, I find I’m much more drawn to my bulky warm sweaters in the back of my closet. I find I’m always cold so these awkwardly over sized sweaters go great with a new movie in bed with some of my specialty hot chocolate.

Trying to stay warm can be a struggle, especially when the weather here is constantly on the fritz with little to no continuity, I feel I’m either going to buy too many mens sweaters or just dye my hair a ginger.

I’ve managed to give my forehead some warmth by getting bangs. Bangs can be cute, they can be flirty, they can be amazing…if you are Zooey Deschanel. I haven’t had bangs since I was in high school and I forgot how hard they can be to manage. I walk past a mirror and I’m either weirded out by how awkward I look or stop, wink to myself and do a slight tiger growl because of this little indie look I’m attempting to rock. 

Christmas is just days away and while I will be working for the man Christmas morning I’m lucky enough to make it for dinner, and I’m definitely in need of some good ‘ol quality family time.
