December: Little Moments


Sometimes when the holidays approach it’s easy to forget to cherish little moments that can make your day. Whether it’s wearing your favourite lipstick or enjoying trimming the tree, making time for memories is always a good thing. 

I was fortunate to be off quite early this month for an extended holiday, and as many of you know, I love to decorate. So, this year, I was able to decorate for our home before preparing to leave, and help friends set up décor for a holiday party as well.

With Christmas essentially right around the corner, I thought I would share a few of my favourite December moments so far. There has already been a great amount—some moments to keep sacred, and some to save until the new year. But, here's a few that I captured.

One of several family traditions that we have is finding different nutcrackers from diverse places, this year is my turn, but the one that I found is not shown until Christmas day. Here’s a couple snapshots of other ones that I used. In addition, there's style favourites: a new travelling tote, a glimpse of holiday trimmings for entertaining, and more. 
Style shot of new wooden watch and the day's accessories, Current favourite colourful scarf, Leather tote/travelling bag, Boxes, boxes, and more holiday boxes filled with gifts to ship, Tree trimming begins, and Favourite December look.
