A Few Of My Favorite Things

I remember being a child and making a Christmas present list every year for Santa Claus and then as I got older for my parents. Though I don’t make lists anymore (because let’s be honest, I have more than I could ever need – I’m healthy, I’m surrounded by amazing friends and family, I have a roof over my head, I get to eat 3 meals a day and I get to do things I love!), I thought it’d be fun to make a fake fashion holiday wish list this year. There are just so many beautiful garments that exist in the world, a girl can dream can’t she? Here are a few of my favorite things…

Mixing Classics #DailyOutfit

My favorite time of year is fast approaching – Christmas!!! and I’m definitely starting to feel pressure to find the perfect gifts for my loved ones. I know Christmas is not only about gift-giving, but the amount of joy that I get from getting my family members something that really makes them happy, is priceless! There’s nothing I love more than to see their reactions on Christmas morning when they open their presents. I’ve always gone overboard every year ever since I can remember but I can’t seem to do anything less. How about you?! Are you good at finding the perfect Christmas gift?

Also, super random side note but is anyone else addicted to Season 15 of The Biggest Loser?! I blame my boyfriend for getting me into it but now I’ve watched a few episodes and I’m hooked. A total guilty pleasure. Anyone else watching?! What are your current television guilty pleasures?!

For today’s outfit, I’m mixing classics: the black and white stripes and some red and blue plaid. I’ve also added some dainty rings and my newest Biko Jewellery necklace.

Roar #DailyOutfit

This week, Katy Perry launched/leaked two new singles, one with her on and off again beau John Mayer, a sappy love song called “Who You Love” as well as her already hit new single “Roar”. I’ve always been a fan of Katy’s music, I love her colorful pop and the magical universe that she transports her listeners into. It reminds me of my childhood and can always put a smile on my face. I thoroughly enjoyed her music DVD Part Of Me. I watched on Christmas eve last December while I was at London Heathrow waiting for a flight to Montreal for the holidays after having spent a magical ten days in France. For some reason, the DVD really got to me and I really starting appreciating Katy Perry even more. Though I usually always talk about up and coming artists and maybe less commercial tracks, I think there’s nothing wrong with also liking top 40 artists and big pop stars. I’d say Katy Perry is probably one of my current favorite pop darlings along with Rihanna and Beyoncé. What can I say, I’m kind of a sucker for a good catchy track.

Today’s daily outfit is inspired by “Roar”! If you haven’t heard the track yet, here’s her emoticon lyric video for the track:
