Friday’s Fabulous Five

Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Today is the day of looooove! Hopefully you’ll will be spending some time with a loved one or family or maybe a night out with your single girlfriends. My Valentine is a few provinces over so I will have to settle for a phone call. In honour of Valentines Day I have made a list of Friday’s Fabulous Five that are inspired all things Valentines! Enjoy!

Deck The Halls

The time is seriously just flying by – Christmas is ONE week away!

I plan on attempting to finish up my shopping this weekend. The only people I have left to shop for are the 2 most important men in my life – my dad and fiance. I know the malls are going to be crazy busy so wish me luck!

A couple weeks back I put up all our holiday decorations and only just recently put up our tree. I quickly snapped a few shots of the various decor pieces we have around our condo during the holiday season!

Holiday Party Attire

It’s that time of year where your weekends start filling up with holiday parties, whether it’s for work, with your friends or family. Asides from your personal style, the location and/or theme of the party can narrow down your outfit choices. Everyone pretty much always has an ugly sweater party to attend, right? But it’s more about the parties where you get to throw some heels on & get all done up! Unfortunately my work doesn’t have a holiday party and neither does my fiance. However, I’ve compiled some pieces that I would consider wearing if I had somewhere to go – whether you’re feeling glam (sequins!), sophisticated sexy, or romantic in lace!

Holiday Decor

Happy first of December!

Every year my dad gives us a Lindt advent calendar so today I got to enjoy the first of many delicious chocolates! Also, my fiance and I decided that we’d wait until the first of the month to put up our Christmas decorations. He’s currently out of town though so I went ahead and put up our few decorations myself, minus the tree. I want to wait for him to get home so we can at least put the tree up together, even though it doesn’t take much time.

I was eager to put up our decorations though because I couldn’t remember what we’d purchased last year (it was our first Christmas together in our place) and wanted to buy more. I should’ve known better than looking at what new pieces stores had to offer this year, I always get tempted. Sure enough after setting everything up, I want more. Our colour scheme is gold, silver, red & white and I feel that certain spots need more of certain colours. Therefore I plan on hitting up a couple stores this weekend to purchase just a couple new decorations!

Christmas on Etsy

So it may be a little bit early to start talking about Christmas.. but it is my favourite time of year!! I love everything about Christmas, spending time with loved ones, going to Christmas parties, buying gifts and all the decor!! I always make it a rule each year not to decorate until December 1st but that doesn’t mean I can’t shop around and see what is new this year.

Yesterday I was browsing through Etsy to see if I could find any unique or fun Christmas decorations. Here are a few of my favourite I found!

These are Half Pint Frosty White Tree Mason Jars. Mason jars have been really popular the past few years but I have never seen it used in this way. They are super cute and they also come in different sizes. Love them!

il_570xN.394366194_nitlThese Lego Christmas Baubles  are perfect for kids!! I grew up building Lego all the time with my brother so when I found these it brought back some childhood memories!

il_570xN.506567713_at36This Geometric Christmas Tree is made from recycled hard book covers! I love this idea and it is unique so I couldn’t help but share this gem.

il_570xN.518493808_bydcVinyl art decor is a quick way to change up a space and is quite popular. This Reindeer Games Decal is perfect for Christmas. This vinyl art comes in different sizes and colours and can be placed on walls, windows and mirrors!

Some of these decor items can also be created at home as well. Happy decorating!!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!

As soon as I saw photos of mini pumpkins surfacing on Instagram I knew I wanted to pick up a few to decorate my condo with – they are just too cute! Especially the white ones, but unfortunately I couldn’t find them anywhere. I also had a little vase that I wanted to fill with  Halloween candy but I wanted to buy something that I wouldn’t be tempted to eat so I went with candy corn. Call me crazy but I’m just not a big fan of it, however, I have been guilty of snacking on them. (I have to add that the vase wasn’t full when I put the candy in it).

Here are a few photos of how I added some Fall decor to our place, which will be replaced with Holiday decor before I know it. I didn’t go as far as making them gold or glittery but definitely will get more creative next year!
