I love a good old gift giving. I’m SUCH a sucker for it. My family is not big on Christmas, at least not on the gifting part. Last year we weren’t going to do any gift exchange whatsoever, but I caved at the last moment and ended up on a little shopping spree buying each person from my family a little Christmas present. Then, on Christmas Eve, I wrapped them all up, wrote a little Christmas card with a little explanation as to why I brought them each what I brought, then I signed it from ‘Santa’ and then put it all out on the kitchen table once everyone else had gone to bed. I told you, I’m SUCH A SUCKER. This year is no exception. I went to all of my favourite local shops in Edinburgh to get the best of the best for the people I love most. …
Before I moved, I asked on my Instagram for anyone with any questions about my move. In case you missed it – at the beginning of September I relocated from my northern Ontario home, across the Atlantic Ocean, to my new home in Edinburgh, Scotland. Instagram did not disappoint in their questions, and finally after spending a few days here I filmed a little Q+A (my first like this!) to answer some of your burning questions. At the very least, I speak candidly about why I decided to move, and what it really meant for me, what the biggest challenges were, and how I approached it considering I’ve lived with a relatively severe anxiety disorder for my whole life! Watch below.
Do you have any questions for me that weren’t answer in the video? Let me know! I finally have a job here, and at least a lead on an apartment, and ONE whole new friend.
I think it’s about time I feature a lil outfit post! My wardrobe and style is VERY dependent on the season, and in the summertime I’m very floaty and fresh with my wardrobe. I don’t like anything too flashy, or too high maintenance. I’ll wear the same pair of jean shorts and plain t shirts with Birkenstocks day in and day out. As the weather gets colder, I always somehow find the inspiration to put a lil extra something into my wardrobe. I suddenly want to take the time to do my hair and makeup, and wear skirts with tights and cozy sweaters and turtlenecks. This year, I moved right at the beginning of September, which meant I had to pack up my entire Autumn/Winter wardrobe, and now I’m working through that summer to fall transition on a very minimal wardrobe.
