Baublebar Wants & Inspiration

Spent a few hours today binge-watching Supernatural on Netflix and browsing the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals on some of my fave websites.
BaubleBar has a bunch of items I have been lusting after for weeks months, and I can’t wait to order a selection tonight at midnight to keep and give away as Christmas presents.
And of course I had to imagine how I will use the items! I love statement necklaces for their versatility – they can be used with a tee and leggings to run errands or with a great dress at an evening function.
Here are the items I am currently lusting after:

Holiday Gear: Emerald & Gold

Another day, another idea for Christmas party gear.
I love green and it is perfect for the holidays. The gold adds the needed bling and makes me smile. And of course, these outfits would look awesome wandering old Quebec City 😉

Glam Christmas Outfit Inspiration

I saw this sequin bow sweater from Topshop on Refinery29 a few days ago and fell in love. Then, today, I saw this owl sweater on Glitterguide and I decided I had to put together a look around glam Christmas sweaters.
I wanted something ultra-comfy that you could open Christmas presents in and eat as much Christmas brunch as I might want without worrying about a food baby. The black bag is super easy and fits cards through presents, depending on your holiday needs. Finally, I would use simple loafers to keep my feet warm and cute throughout the day.

Bookstore Holiday Gifts

Over the past few weeks I have kept a list of possible holiday gifts on my phone. Included on that list are a lot of books. Growing up, an exciting Friday night was a trip to Chapters where we would each choose a book or two – and we would finish the book by Sunday night.
Okay, this might still be an exciting Friday night…what can I say, I love to read!
The list below is just a few ideas for family members and friends.
So tell me, what books are you giving this Christmas? What books are you hoping for under the Christmas tree?

Polyvore Wishlist 2013

My mom has been asking me for a Christmas wish list with a few items for under the tree so this contest on Polyvore was the perfect way to put my list together! The contest is live for another 10 days, so hop on over and enter! Oh, and don’t forget to send the list to your loved ones, and ask them to make one for themselves so, a great cheat sheet for gifts!

Bedroom Inspiration

I saw the pallet-wall-as-headboard idea here a few weeks ago and fell in love with the look of it. This week I found this DIY wall on Pinterest, and decided I had to put the whole room on paper before I forget it!
As most condos have limited closets, I love the idea of having extra storage beside the bed, and I think PAX are a great option as you can use them for storing anything. You could attach a light on the side of each for personalized reading lights over the beds. I am leaning towards richer colors in this condo, so I used teal-ish as an accent colour. I love this bedding from IKEA for our extra duvet (used so we don’t fight over bedding in the winter) with a white basic duvet for year-round use.
Lastly, I love picture rails over beds. I think we would layer two of them, so each has a purpose: one for our iPads/books and one for pictures.
What do you think? How do you make storage work in a small space?
