I celebrated my final 30 for 30 outfit with a trip to Sweet Obsessions with my colleagues from UBC. While I did enjoy taking part in this challenge, it certainly was a relief to hang out with the rest of my closet after finishing this. I did miss my other jeans, sweaters, cardi’s and boots, but all in all I didn’t find this 30 for 30 half as difficult as the Spring/Summer challenge. It was a great reminder that you don’t need that many clothes to make a ton of outfits. I encourage you to take up the challenge!
Something about this outfit reminds me of the traditional Spanish dresses and my trip to Andalucia, Spain.

Do I take life too seriously? Yes, I believe I do. Sometimes, I just have to take a deep breath, slow down and learn to enjoy life as my kids do. One step at a time.

Have you started thinking about your NY’s resolutions? Mine are always the same: worry less and be more patient. Do you have recurring resolutions? What are they?
Hope you’re all having a lovely Christmas day celebrating Jesus’ birthday, eating turkey (or roast lamb in our case), giving and receiving tons of presents and having a special time with family and friends. We are pretty low key this year, having been to church on Christmas Eve, we’re spending our day just the four of us, quietly playing at home, eating our roast lamb and root veggies, opening our presents (there is a strong car/train/anything transportation device theme going with the boy’s pressies) and having lots of cuddles and snuggly warm time inside. And maybe a big walk in the afternoon, we’ll see.
What do you wear on Christmas Day? Do you dress up or do you stay casual? As a child I always wore my ‘best dress’ but as I’ve got older I’ve opted more for a casual outfit. The key is: wear bottoms that allow lots of room for a growing, bloated tummy. That’s all i have to say about that.
Happy Christmas darling readers,
mwah mwah, smooch, smooch,

Happy Christmas Eve! How many of you are stuck in a car park today, caught in traffic, amidst last minute shoppers. Ho-hum. Next year: start your holiday shopping in July. That’s what I promise myself each year. Another broken resolution.
