The Christmas Wishlist


Screen Shot 2014-12-10 at 4.52.53 PM

The ‘Wishlist’ this year was actually a hard one. Besides the idea of gift cards for my future shopping pleasures, I had a hard time coming up with some actual gift ideas for myself. It’s a mix of ‘I want everything’ and ‘I don’t know what I want’. Sad really, isn’t it. This year I’m also really starting to see gifts as unnecessary. Can we not just spend some time together in each others presence? Why do we need material gifts? All deep and soul searching comments aside, these are some of the gifts I’ve come up with this year and would love for Christmas!

NARS Digital World Lip Pencil Coffret – $56.00 (Sephora)

Clinique Sonic System Purifying Brush – $95.00 (Sephora)

Laura Mercier Hydrating Foundation Primer – $40.00 (Sephora)

Kate Spade 2015 Stripped Date Book – $36.00 (Chapters/Indigo)

Danier Leather Seville Lamb Leather Gloves – $49.00 (Danier Leather)

What’s on your Christmas Wishlist this year? Have you ever tried any of the items on my list?


The Kate Spade Adelia Bag


I’m well aware of the holiday shopping battle: the desperate desire to shop for yourself albeit the inappropriate timing. It’s a time for buying gifts and wrappings to make the holidays bright for those around you! Don’t worry, hopefully they’ll return the sentiments. But with long-lasting Black Friday sales, and the constant unknown of what gifts (if any) are to come, I couldn’t help myself this holiday season. It’s not everyday you find these deals, am I right?!

It seems that each and every year Black Friday becomes a longer event. Starting as just a single day, Black Friday now seems to span a full week! Oh the gluttony and mass consumerism…..But I seem to get caught up in it too. Which is why I wandered over to the Kate Spade location at the Toronto Outlets, a close-to-home beacon of money spending. Through the pandemonium and crowds I found this little beauty, the Adelia clutch. Regular price of $180, I got this beauty for $80! Steal!

It’s the perfect size for this time of year. Fits my wallet and lipstick and is light and easy to carry for all of those Christmas shopping trips to the mall! No bulky purses to get in the way of arms full of bags and purchases! I love the deep rosy-maroon colour of the bag with the contrast of the lighter pink. It looks great with my black jacket and I’ve been getting many compliments!

Did anyone else find some great Black Friday designer deals?
