write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.

It is amazing how quickly time seems to go by. Already, another year is about to begin. I always love this time of year, because anything seems possible.

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

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas! I can't wait to hear about your experiences.

Christmas is my favourite time of year, so I am always a little sad once it is over. Looking at my  pictures from the holiday season cheers me right back up, though! Here are some of my favourites.

christmas, my child, is love in action. every time we love, every time we give, it's christmas.

With Christmas quickly approaching, I am busy trying to balance my responsibilities with my favourite Christmas traditions. Lately, I have been thinking a lot about my favourite Christmas memories.

it’s true what you heard, i'm a freak, i’m disturbed.

Sometimes you hear a song for the first time, and know instantly that you love it.

This is how I felt the first time I heard Christina Aguilera's first single from her new album, Lotus. Your Body is catchy, fun, and bold - just like Christina! I bought her album the day it came out and have been listening to it non-stop since.

beauty is only skin deep.

One of my least favourite things about winter, is the damage it does to my skin. I have dry skin to begin with, but the harsh winds and winter cold make it even worse. This year, I am trying to be diligent in my skin care routine. A little while back, I picked up a Garnier skin care set, specifically targeted for people with dry skin. It included the Garnier Body 7 Day Intensive Care Repairing Body Lotion, Moisture Rescue Makeup Removing Wipes and the Moisture Rescue Gel Face Lotion.

it was magical, this snow globe world.

As December soldiers on, I find myself wishing I had a holiday party to go to. I love getting dressed up, and the holidays are always the perfect excuse! Since I am without a glitzy gathering this year, I decided to create my perfect holiday look instead.

among my most prized possessions are the words that I have never spoken.

Some things are more important than others.

Loving fashion, beauty, music, and books as I do...well, I have a lot of stuff. Out of everything I own, there are a few items that stand out among the rest.

christmas favourites.

As I've mentioned, Christmas is my favourite time of year. Like most people, I have my own traditions, both with my family and of my own. The traditions are what make the holiday season so special. Here are some of my favourites.

a picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.

I'll admit - I still do not like Miley Cyrus' new haircut. For some reason, it just doesn't work for me. However, I recently came across this older picture of her that I totally fell in love with!

reviews: new drugstore makeup

Over the last little while, I have tried a few new drugstore makeup products: Maybelline BB Cream, Maybelline Fit Me Blush and Rimmel's Match Perfection 2 in 1 Concealer.  I have had mixed reactions to these products, and wanted to share my thoughts with you!

winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth.

I still can't believe that it is December already! I am constantly counting down the days until Christmas - my favourite time of year. To get myself in the Christmas spirit (not that I need any help with that!) I've come up with my Winter Wants list.

love it or leave it?

Finally, it is December 1st! Now people can stop telling me it's too early to watch Christmas movies and listen to Christmas carols. I hope you are all excited that it is officially the holiday season.

I have the biggest girl crush on Keira Knightley. Why? Just look at her! She embodies classic beauty and sophistication. There is just something about Keira that stands out.

At the premiere of her latest movie, Anna Karenina, Keira looked ready for Spring with pastels, florals, and a perfect pouty pink lip.
