Friday Favourites

‘Twas the day after Christmas and all through the house – you could hear me weeping softly for it to come back.

Honestly. Not even kidding.

I hope your Christmas was spent amongst your loved ones, including your brand new shiny and hopefully wish list-ed gifts.

I’ve actually been busy and not just lazy throughout the month of December so now that things are settled and I need something to distract from counting down the days until next December I’m rapid fire posting. And go.

Here are my current favourites…

Favourite Photo

Obviously my favourite photo would be based on the holidays. This here is Jackson and I on Christmas morning waiting to tear into our carefully selected and crafted gift wrap. Although it may not seem like it, Christmas is so much more than just gifts to me. I love giving them and watching my sisters surprise (heh), family photos, staying in and watching movies with my parents, and having so much family around. This was our first Christmas sans my sister whose moved back home but Skype made it feel like she never left. ‘Twas wonderful.

Favorite Purchase

Wilfred Chatou Vest. I purchased this for my sister for Christmas from Aritzia. Santa was in a very giving mood. In turn, I should be able to beg, borrow or steal. So plush, the perfect nude, and made for layering. A nice little investment indeed.

Favourite Past-time

Now don’t get any ideas here – I’m no Chopped Holiday Baking Champ but when I have the time, the motivation, and the utensils – I can craft a cake or two. This one was for my sister’s birthday last week. She had doubted my skills after a couple batches of sub par cupcakes but that doubt has now been clouded. With thick fog and icing. This whimsical little snowman here can attest to that.

Favorite Outfit

Duh. I would. My sister is dressed up as my Elf. Does that make it any better? Mind blowing right? This was for our annual trip to see the Bellevue Square Santa and tell him that we have more than enough luxuries, but still. You can thank Wildfox for the sweater. – Ms. Claus

Favourite Food

I usually care enough about my fitness that I keep my cravings in check until cheat day but Christmas week has gone and done it again. And true to cliche’ – the new year’s resolution stands true – melt off the holidays. In the meantime – this was breakfast this morning. I usually await a meal prepared by someone other than myself because Panda Puffs and smoothies aren’t sustenance for satisfied tastebuds, obviously. This here was crafted by yours truly. I am just as shocked and amazed. It’s no Mom’s French Toast from The Griddle but it was some of my best work yet.

Favourite Beauty Product

I found this gem nestled in my stocking yesterday and holy sh*t – amazing. My sister and I were on a Dior craze because when we get hooked on a product we seem to delve into excess but I am floored by this Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi Shine Nail Lacquer.  I got Fluorescent Beige which is a nude with a slight iridescence . I’ve only tried it on – my nails are due for a manicure – but the shine, the coat and the formula is already blowing me apart. Review should be up sooner than later…

I sincerely hope you all had a Christmas to remember. Whether it was busy, relaxing, spent with loved ones or with those you are glad to see only once a year. Cherish.
