The 5 Best Holiday Movies

Today I’m sharing the 5 best holiday movies out there- I’ve seen pretty much every vaguely Christmas related movie out there (bar horror movies), from the big name block busters to the early morning Hallmark movies that are replayed when no one should be awake. […]

Red and Green Wardrobe, Style File Friday

I genuinely love wearing red and green, they are my two favourite colours. (Red works well in the fall and winter, and green is pretty for the spring and summer.) Unfortunately, I rarely have an excuse during most of the year to wear the two […]

#24daysoftea (aka David's Tea Advent Calendar)

I love Advent calendars. Even though I’m not particularly religious, they are one of my favourite parts of the holidays! Countdowns make everything more excited, and when you factor in that each day of the countdown means that you receive a tiny gift, it’s the […]
