    A Nutcracker Christmas

    Posted in Uncategorized by

    First off, I apologize for the quality of these photos. I made sure to pack my camera and SD card but somehow managed to forget the battery. Silly me! 
    Its become a bit of a tradition that I see The Nutcracker every Christmas. I didn’t celebrate the holiday growing up even though I very much wanted to and watching The Nutcracker would somehow always make up for that. Since then, I always make sure I consume some form of Nutcracker cinema around the holidays. My fella and I celebrated (a late) Christmas together this year and it was my 2nd ever celebration. One of my gifts was tickets to see the ballet and I just about cried when it came time to go. I couldn’t wait to get dolled up and head out for our fancy evening together. He sure knows how to make this lady happy!
    In usual blogger fashion, I spent quite some time mentally planning my outfit. If it wasn’t for ModCloth’s 50% off sale, I wouldn’t have nabbed this beautiful green velvet dress. It just screams Sarah Anne doesn’t it? I was a bit concerned that 4x would fit more like a 2x but luckily its full of stretch and fits me like a glove. I couldn’t have dreamt up a better outfit for this occasion and pairing it was Sockdreams’ polka dot gloves (did you know they sell gloves? so neat, right?) was the perfect addition. I received so many compliments and felt like a darn princess. Now if only it didn’t rain all over my hair!

    Dress – ModCloth
    Gloves – Sockdreams
    Tights – Walmart
    Shoes – Thrifted

    Best of 2013

    Posted in Uncategorized by

    Can you believe that today is the very first day of 2014? It doesn’t even remotely feel like a year has past but I guess it has! 2013 was crazy, strange but exciting and life changing. 
    Highlights: Meeting my boyfriend (duh) and sharing the majority of the year with him. Taking a trip to England and getting to check off a major must-do on my bucket list. Enrolling in a new course that has me feeling inspired and on the right path. Travelling a lot and conquering my fear of flying. Living on my own and realizing I can do it.
    Lowlights: Mostly losing my lifelong kitty Daisy. After 17 years and growing up with her, I had to say goodbye after old age caught up with her. Its still terribly painful to think about not sharing 2014 with her but she’ll always be in my heart.
    Personal life aside, my style has gone through some major changes this year but I think 2013 will go down as the year that I really started to love my style. I’ve compiled some of my favourites from the year and I cannot wait to get more creative in 2014. Here’s to another year of great fashion, love and adventure.
