Holidays are Coming

24 Nov

Christmas is my favourite time of the year, spending time with family & friends, over indulging, classic Christmas movies, festive parties & if you’ve been good some great pressies under the tree. That being said I’m never one to start the festive season too early, it’s all about pacing yourself so that you go the distance.
But I was quite shocked when I realised today that I only have 3 weekends left until I go home to Ireland for Christmas!! I’m So excited but at the same time I know it’s time to start the preparation & pressies are first on the agenda. Here are some of my picks for;

Gifts $25 & under

Martha Stewart Collection Recipe Cocktail Shaker – Macys $24.99
Studded Stretch Ring – Topshop $18
Le Vernis Steel – Chanel $23
Fall in Glove in Gray Gloves – Modcloth $24.99
The Sartorialist – $25
Faux Fur Bootie Slipper – Urban Outfitters $24
Candy Bar Scarf in Nougat – Modcloth $24.99
Tattoo Etched ID Case – Urban Outfitters $14
The Gingerbread Man, ginger hot salt body scrub – Philosophy $25
Christian Lacroix Croquis Notebook – Therapie New York $10.95
Backstage Eye Shadow Palette – Sephora $19

    Christmas is my favourite time of the year as well. This one is going to be rather bittersweet for me. I will not be going home to London, but it’ll be my first Christmas here in Toronto. Christmas away from the fam, but with good friends.

    It is just around the corner now. Never too early to start planning. Love the wrist cuff!
