New Year's Resolutions......?

Good afternoon my darling, I hope you’re having a great start to your week. I love Monday’s because I find they fly by like nobody’s business…. Does it feel like that for you? I’ve been thinking a lot about New Year’s resolutions as the year, very quickly, comes to an end. I’ve been pondering over so many things that I could do as a resolution. Lately in my life in general some things and some feelings about things have been changing, and I think it’s time to spice things up a bit! I don’t have a hobby, I don’t know many people, and I seldom do things that I enjoy doing for myself, and that has led me to so many different things that I could take up, spend my money on, figure out…. First off, I thought that I could start running again. Typical New Year’s resolution, right? Nothing wrong with that at all, I work in the fitness industry so I totally support fitness goals, the only thing with that (for me) is that I know that if I feel like I HAVE to go for a run, I will talk myself out of it. I have “spurts” of running, so I might have it remain a goal, but it’s not going to be my huge new year’s resolution. I then thought about doing a program at college. I am very interested in doing a course on Business Marketing, and found a great course that I could sign up for in April, but is that a “resolution”? I mean, it could be part of a resolution, but it’s only 3ish months out of the whole year. If I want a hobby, it’s something that I’m going to want to keep up all of the time, right? I thought about taking a class in fashion design. I’ve never taken a course on this, so I’d start out with the beginner’s class. I feel like this is more on the right track because it could lead to a hobby of making clothes if I find that I enjoy it. I also thought along the same lines of taking a photography course! I’ve asked for a Digital SLR Camera for Christmas, so I guess depending on if I get that or not, I could take a photography class. That would definitely be a hobby! Whatever I decide to do, I know that part of my resolution will be to: - Have more friend time with my close friends. - Enjoy good food (which includes trying MANY different places here in Toronto). - Enjoy great wine. - Enjoy an amazing book. What have you thought about so far for your new year’s resolution? Let me know! Maybe it will inspire something fun for me as well. Stay Sweet. Xoxo.

My Grown Up Christmas List

Good evening good friends, I've been kind of blank lately when it comes to what to post about. Nothing exciting or new has really been happening, well, nothing that would interest you. But with the holidays just around the corner (LITERALLY! 18 days until Christmas! Which means.... VACAAAAATION!) so I thought I'd share with you, what I've asked for, for Christmas! I guess the biggest thing that was on my list was a new SLR camera... This one to be exact:
I can't help but fall in love with it because of it's colour, but I'm told that it's also a very nice camera! I can't wait to actually have an amazing camera to take pictures. I love taking pictures, and if I could take even better ones than I do now, it would be so worth the cost. Next on my list to C, was jewellery, to be more specific, a necklace from Tiffany's. Now, if anyone is dating a man like C, you understand how hard it is to get jewellery out of him. It took me 1.5 years to get a bouquet of flowers out of him, let alone a necklace, so I have made it very clear. I e-mailed him a list of 8 links of specific Tiffany necklaces that I thoroughly enjoy, so I'm going to share them with you for your opinion. Option 1 is very classic and elegant. Can't go wrong with this bad boy! Option 2 is so pretty and cute. I would LOVE telling people who gave it to me if they asked. xo Option 3 is SO adorable. What girl wouldn't honestly be so in love with this necklace? Swoon... Option 4 is another classic. Tiffany's is known for their key pendents.. love. Option 5 I love that it has New York City on it... another classic. Option 6... need I say more? Option 7 as cheesy as this sounds, it'd be like having him around my neck aaaaall day. Option 8 same comment as previous! What are you asking for for Christmas? Anything special from someone special this year? Stay Sweet. xoxo.

NYC Photos

Good afternoon my lovelies! I don't think I've had the pleasure of sharing my NYC photos with you all yet! Me and C went at the beginning of October for 5 days and 4 nights. It was my first trip anywhere, and I loved it!! Check out below :):
Awww.... I love these photos. Stay sweet. xoxo.

Stumped

Good morning gorgeous, I’ve decided to buy a Christmas gift for C’s mom this year. I still haven’t met his family (long story) but I’ve been with the guy for a year and a half, I think I can get away with getting them something this year, right? I’ve only ever seen one photo of C’s mother, and it was a cute on of her and C’s dad. I had put a suggestion out there that we get them a picture of the two of us in a frame, which I might do as part of the gift, the only thing is that C’s mom is blind, so she won’t be able to see the photo… or anything I get her. But fear not! I have come up with other plans as well, such as 1. A Pashmina; what girl/woman doesn’t like a nice soft scarf around her neck in the winter months? Or 2, a nice chunky/funky necklace from a nice little jewellery boutique. I’m leaning more towards the scarf, but if I see a necklace that I really like, I would consider buying it for her as well. We’ll see! Any thoughts? I’ve never had to buy a boyfriends mother a present before. I’m stumped. Also – I’ve decided that I’m completely giving up on baking. I really tried hard to bake macaroons twice now, and have failed miserably both times. However, it turns out that I really can cook, and I actually enjoy doing it! Talk about being domestic, right? I think I’m going to start sharing recipes and photos of my creations going forward. Stay Sweet. Xoxo.
