My absence here is inexcusable! This is the longest I've gone without blogging and I sincerely hope it's the record. The past couple of weeks have been a blur of workplace upheaval, Christmas shopping and hosting our first party last weekend (which was awesome by the way!). I never did get around to compiling that holiday gift guide (yes, they're everywhere but I'm a sucker for a good gift guide), so I thought I'd share a few items that have come into my life recently: either received by me as gifts, given by me as gifts or given to me, from me, as "gifts". And if any of them inspire you in your gift giving endeavors, even better!
Canada Goose parka I've been wanting (looking for one? Skip Holt Renfrew & Style Exchange and head straight to Azimut). Sure, in conjunction with my Sorel boots I now look like I'm wearing the Montreal winter uniform but I'm way too warm and comfy and happy to care about being a cliché.
I won't reveal too much of what I bought, just in case. But I have four nephews who certainly don't read this blog. No need to break my head over this one: X Box 360 with Kinect! Will I get a chance to play with it? I'm not holding my breath.
Le Creuset whistling kettle as a housewarming present. Love it!
Travel Book. Especially since I came thisclose to buying it for myself last week but just didn't feel like lugging it around. I love giving books as well, and this years' batch includes Kat von D's The Tattoo Chronicles, Montreal's Best BYOB Restaurants & Slash by Slash.
