Another busy December has come and gone which means it’s time to celebrate! I work for a large Canadian company that is bombarded with crazy schedules and assignments each and every Christmas-time (as you may have noticed from my recent travel schedule and hectic moods). So when our busy period winds down and everyone can breathe a sigh of relief, we celebrate. We have our Christmas party in January and I kinda like it that way. (see last year’s party here)

Our celebration took place this past weekend and I couldn’t have had a better time. It’s one of the only times Corey and I get to dress up and go all out! He wore his Calvin Klein suit and I put on a old dress that I’ve only ever been able to wear once before. A little black and white Taylor number from the Hudson Bay Company many moons ago (you don’t always need to splurge for something new, this one got me a lot of compliments!).

Of course my favourite part of the entire evening was getting ready. I’m currently working on editing a Get Ready With Me video and am still unsure as to whether I’m going to post it, but for now here is what I wore on my face for the evening! A co-worker of mine thought I had it professionally done!….I pat myself on the back. The pictures don’t quite do it justice:

OOTD #2 and WOMF – Christmas in January

As I’ve mentioned before I work for a large Canadian food service company. Seeing as December is the busiest time of year for us, we celebrate Christmas and the New Year in January. This past Saturday was our ‘Far East’ themed staff celebration at a large convention centre in Hamilton. It was one of the most extravagant events that I’ve ever been to. It was amazing!!! The decorations, the food, the drinks, the outfits, etc. I had so much fun!! But of course the best part of a night like this is getting ready!! I haven’t had the chance to dress up in such a long time! It was wonderful!!!

Starting with the outfit:

– TFNC London Dress from Topshop

– Beige Froguil Shoes from Aldo
