Crappy Lighting Strikes Again

My crappy lighting situation strikes again (I was too lazy and suffering from a cold to set up my lighting ring and the sun had set at 4 pm so getting natural light wasn't happening). But I really couldn’t resist getting a photo of my cozy poncho. As the weather gets colder and the stresses of the holiday season start to get to me, I basically just want to live in this thing.

Living My Best Life in the Winter

I am just living my best life when it’s cold outside. How weird is it that I’m seriously at my happiest when it’s cold and snow is involved? And I don’t ski or do any winter sports whatsoever? I just like the cold and lack of daylight. I feel like that’s probably pretty weird…

Christmas Stress

I tend to get hyper organized around Christmas (a time of year which stresses me out like no other) and usually book a few days off work at the start of the month to decorate the house, address all my holiday cards, go shopping in the middle of the day on a Thursday in the hope that that will somehow make it less stressful, wrap all my gifts, and make a trip to the post office to ship various presents to various places. This was worn on the day I went shopping (I’d been living in sweats for the two previous days as I literally worked from 9 am to 5 pm to get all the decorations set up and all the holiday cards done) … I was tired, frustrated, and cranky (basically a real treat to be around for my helpmeet, who also took the day off work so we could double team on the shopping). Does anyone else get a bit stressed at Christmas?

Coat Love

I can’t get enough of this grey coat now that winter is here. While not my beloved black, I do enjoy other monochrome pieces and this definitely one of them, I just want to curl up in it, wearing a cozy scarf.

All the Frills: Work Shoes

Meet my absolute favourite new work shoe, from Old Navy. I ordered a pair in black recently and I could not be happier with them. They are comfortable, affordable, and look great with pretty much all my work outfits. This might best investment I’ve made in recent memory. Do you have a go-to work shoe?

I think it’s safe to say that it is officially winter around here. Snow has fallen, temperatures have dropped, and, while I definitely enjoy winter, my annual fear and nervousness about driving on icy roads is in full swing. Hopefully I can get a handle on that this year!
