I found myself in the kitchen a lot this Christmas, thanks to Mr. Jamie Oliver! While on my extremely short plane ride home, I managed to catch 3 episodes of Jamie's Christmas special! Over the two days I managed to try out 3 of his amazing recipes. The thing is - they are so simply. That's the key!
Dress - 1940's inspired navy blue button up dress - vintage
Shoes - Black leather t-strap wedges - Urban outfitters

Ever since Nicola and I were small girls we have loved to play dress up. Thanks to our amazing mother we had an entire closet full of exciting costumes, vintage clothing (that are now part of our real closets), props, bangles - you name it! Now that we've lived a province apart for 4 years, every time we get together seems like a great excuse to get dressed up! I love having Nicola as a model, this girl is stunning! I hope you enjoy these photo, more to come.
ps. I'm selling this beautiful dress on my Etsy shop! It will be up in the early new year - I'll keep you posted!

My little sister Nicola is the queen of nail polish! Not only does she have a wicked OPI collection, but she is also very skilled at applying nail polish. This is one of her creations, perfect for the holiday season.
Throughout the year I love having flowers in my apartment. The local grocery store I go to wraps the flowers in simple brown paper sheets with little ivy patterns. Most people probably just recycle these lovely brown paper sheets, but I've held on to my recycled goods for this very reason ... WRAPPING PAPER.

Today was lovely indeed. The weather wasn't ridiculous, a mild minus six degrees with warm sunlight.
This morning Charmaine and I went for brunch, did some vintage window shopping. I even bought some treats for my Secret Santa!
My extremely messy braid and cashmere sweater.
I watched The Survival of Pigeons as Studied by Human Lovers and ran into the beautiful Rachel. Afterwards I did some Christmas shopping. Now to eat some dinner, get ready for the show tonight and possibly do some crafting!
