After a long break I can say I’m finally ready to come back to blogging. To be blunt I fell out of love with writing and felt uninspired, my summer despite my Instagram photos was a rough one—there was a lot going on behind the scenes I was dealing with and now have officially dealt with which means I can come back full force, I feel re-inspired and ready to take on the world yet again.
Normally I’m not one for arm candy but lately cute little details have been calling my name.
A few months back I was gifted this classic watch, and ever since then it’s been on serious arm repeat.
If you haven’t heard of Daniel Wellington, get out from underneath that rock you’re living under and click here.
If you read my blog regularly you’ll know I’m all about effortless, chic, sustainable and VERSATILE fashion. This watch definitely fits the bill.
When I ordered the Bristol it was shipped in a timely manner and came in the most perfect packaging, little did I know how life changing this little piece would be.
At first I really struggled to remember to wear my watch, it was more of an accessory than a necessity.
Slowly I started wearing it more and more because I liked having that cute little extra oompf to add to my outfits.
Now after about 2 months, I can’t leave the house without it!
If you’re like me and still doing your last minute Christmas Shopping… I recommend checking out Daniel Wellington, for a timeless gift to put into your loved ones stocking this year or under your adorable Christmas Tree!

Do you ever direly need a girl’s day ? I know that I totally do.
I actually get a bit cranky if I don’t have time to see my friends! When West Edmonton Mall invited myself and two other FABULOUS blogger babes for a day of shopping, I was thrilled! A day with two of my equally obsessed fashion friends and SHOPPING ?
It can’t get much better, except it did…. We got to have our girl’s day on Black Friday, which is newer to Canada but still results with AMAZING SALES, everywhere.
Our day started at 7:30am (a little too early for my hibernating soul) at H&M, which was totally worth it ! Although I’m not one for fast fashion more often than not, I was still able to pick up some great goodies at a steal of a deal.
After that we hit up what I like to call the “Usual Suspects” , and some of my personal favorite stores such as Lush, Aritzia, Sephora, and Simons.
After our first few hours we made a quick stop for breakfast at the ever so fitting, delicious and totally instagrammable Caffe-Sorrentino !
Throughout the day we were able to find so many sales that our arms kept getting full with shopping bags, which if you’ve ever done this … you know it’s the WORST !
Thankfully we were able to take a rest stop on their beautiful replica of the Santa Maria !

And let’s talk about the FOOD, throughout the day we able to stuff ourselves with delicious eats! For lunch we went to Mr.Mikes on Bourbon Street , it was scrumptious and filling — totally a must eat !
Our afternoon was spent taking cute outfit photos , snapping like crazy and enjoying the company all while finding great deals and checking off our own Christmas wishlist for ourselves and for our loved ones !
We finished our day off with an extravagantly fabulous dinner at the L2 Grill !
Although my Christmas shopping is done I will definitely be back at West Edmonton Mall to pick up my last minute stocking stuffers !

Cold: The season, is a serious thing here in the lovely city of Edmonton. Unfortunately it’s normal for this time of year for temperatures to drop below -15 degrees celsius.
Thankfully I got these beautiful handwarmers just in time to make blogging , taking photos and texting in the freezing cold bearable.
