Best of 2013

Wow 2013 is almost over and I know everyone says this but where did this year go!? When I look back at these photos it feels like all of this just happened last month. I will be making a staple 'New Years resolution' post but for now I obviously wanted to do a recap on all my favourite outfits/milestones throughout this year. LOTS of photos for you with links to each post, enjoy :)



Oscar Night
Every year my family goes all out for The Oscars. We are huge movie buffs and this year we made sure the award show was a hit with lots of treats and booze ;)


Xquisit Magazine 
Making it into a magazine was a very surreal moment for me this year. It's so unbelievably cool to see yourself while flipping through the pages!!



Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids Lipsticks  
Introducing makeup and makeup monday posts to my blog this year has been wonderful. It's another passion of mine and has helped tremendously with my blog.

My 21st Birthday
My 21st birthday this year was full of everything I love...tea, food, friends/family and flowers :)


Beach Day





World MasterCard Fashion Week  Flare Fashion Magazine Street Style
Another huge moment for me this year was being invited to Toronto Fashion Week. I was invited to New York Fashion Week this year which blew my mind, but unfortunately couldn't make it so I had to make sure I went to the Toronto Fashion Week.
While I was there I made it into Flare Fashion Magazine Street Style post which you can see (here)

I Vant to Suck your Blood
I made sure to really go out with my Halloween makeup/attire this year.



Workout Wednesday : Back to Basics
I also decided to make a workout Wednesday post that I will write about working out, eating healthy and workout gear.

Lots and lots of photos!!

This year has had some major ups and downs, but overall it's been a huge learning and communication year for myself. I will talk more in my New Years resolution post in the next few days but I have been so happy with the opportunities I've had with my blog and I can't wait to push forward even more in 2014 !!!

Christmas Goodies from Santa

Here is a continuation of some other little gifts I received from my family and friends :)

I'm not sure if its just my family, but we get so excited for stockings. "Santa" would always bring our stockings to our room in the middle of the night and when we woke up we would all jump on someones bed and dump out everything we got. My siblings and I have all said we would be ok with stockings and no presents. This is my stocking this year :)

It's a tradition in my house to always have a Terry's Chocolate Orange in our stocking. I love the chocolate and concept of how to open and eat one. There has also been times where I've wanted to buy one on my own for a treat, but I always stop myself knowing it will make Christmas morning that much more special by saving it.
I tried to find these EOS Christmas lip balms for my friend last minute but they were sold out everywhere. I'm so glad Santa got me one ;) 

Today couldn't be any better, it's been snowing all day :)

I will make sure to have these reviews on Makeup Monday!

Every year we all get Christmas pjs or Christmas slippers/socks :)

I have a mug obsession, my family and friends know me well!!

Giant chocolate wrapped to look like a candy. Cute!!

I already mentioned these boots were an early Christmas present, which you can find more information about on my Toronto Christmas Market post!

My family is almost finished cooking dinner and I'm going to "try" to eat something. Having the flu during Christmas blows!!

What was your favourite gift from Santa this year!!!?
