christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.


I can't believe how quickly Christmas is coming up! Even though I've spent ages counting down the days (and taking care of the endless preparations for the holiday)...somehow it managed to sneak up on me. Since there is just over a week until the big day, I thought that I would share some of my holiday pictures with you.

They include a decorated gingerbread house, white hot chocolates from Second Cup, Christmas shopping, festive nails, and of course, checking out the lights in the area. Ready to take a peek into my Christmas so far? Here are a few of my favourite shots!

White Hot Chocolate and a Kinder Penguin! 

Gingerbread house built by my boyfriend...but largely decorated by me.

 Red, glittery Christmas nails!


From the first snowfall of the year! (There is tons more of it now)


Enjoying a peppermint hot chocolate.

Out Christmas shopping....giant Christmas tree!

 Knitted holiday socks. 

 Checking out some Christmas lights with my wonderful boyfriend!


My favourite person.

A gift from my favourite person - an advent calender charm bracelet! I love it!


So, there you have it! Those are some of the pictures from my holiday thus far. I'm sure that I will have plenty more to share with you after Christmas! Until then....I hope you are enjoying the holiday season as much as I am.

Are you excited for the holidays? What have you been doing to prepare?

Also - just wanted to congratulate Kari on winning the $30 Firmoo Voucher Giveaway! I hope that you enjoy it!

    You are better prepared for Christmas than I am! I don't think I've even done any shopping yet! Maybe I'll do that Tuesday after work, lol. If we aren't able to catch up before Christmas, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  15. I've been dying to decorate a gingerbread house! Except that I know I'd want to eat it before it's even finished.

    Sincerely,
