Totally Random Friday – Dec 20th

So, are ya ready?? I’m sure you’ve heard that about a thousand times this week. For those of you who aren’t, this is the last weekend before the BIG DAY. And for those of you who are, sit back, relax and eat some more cookies. (This is my plan… and wrapping.)

Here are some totally random pictures and thoughts of things I’ve bought for myself and for Christmas. I’m not too worried about blowing any big Christmas secrets. My daughter can’t read yet, lol.


Weekly Manicure: Quo by Orly in Star Formation

Gifts for my 15-month-old:

Little People Disney Princess Castle. Honestly, I think I’m going to be more excited to play with it that she is. When you put the princesses in different areas it sings songs from the movies. And it’s soooo cute!


Vtech iDiscover App Activity Table. You can put your iPad in it and the controls around the table interact with several games on the iPad. Also works with Android tablets. When you don’t want your tablet in there, this other piece fits in and babies can play with it. I think her dad is excited for the racing game on this one. And I know she will like the music game that is available.

Note that while I’ve linked the pictures to the Toys R Us website, I noticed both were on sale at Target earlier this week (and cheaper, too).

Sloan pants I picked up on Black Friday from Banana Republic. Love these pants. Totally buying them in at least one other colour and maybe a back-up black pair. Super soft and extremely comfortable.


Chocolate Peppermint Cookies recipe from Bakerella, made by yours truly. I used the milk chocolate mint M&Ms instead and omitted the instant coffee crystals. Delicious!


My fireplace all decorated. Misplaced our tree when we put it away last year (actually, we think we might’ve thrown it out thinking we would buy a new one this year), so this is all the decorating I could do. Not exactly sure where to put the presents.


My Christmas look. Been seeing a new stylist who came up with this gorgeous idea for a mixture of warm and bright reds to glam up my look. Totally loving it!

And lastly, if you are looking for a place to get some Christmas family or engagement pictures done, I highly suggest heading over the Legislative Building. The staff there do a great job of decorating the main staircase every year and it’s a gorgeous building if you’ve never been there. Click on the picture to get the full size one.

I still have some time left if you need some last-minute things picked up or wrapped. Please give me a call or send me an email! Happy Shopping!
