Believe it or not, I am not a huge home decorator at this time of year. I LOVE decorating other people’s homes but in my own house I am actually a bit of a minimalist. This is truly my favourite time of year though and I like to embrace the festive spirit as much as possible through simple changes to my daily routine - a pine scented candle at my desk, a cinnamon stick in my hot drink, a vase full of evergreen boughs etc. I’m all about pleasing all the senses in small ways (not just the eyes with decor!). Swapping out my bath and body products for something a little more festive scented is something I love to do come December (as you can see by some of these bottles being well used before I got to photograph them 😂). I’m sharing about the @yvesrochercanada holiday products that I love over on the blog today - along with a few of my favourite hot water infusion recipes (my fave because they are warm, festive, and hydrating!). #yvesrocher #botanicalbeauty #partner

Went and cut down a Christmas tree today 🎄 I have a very vague memory of cutting a tree when I was a young child (we always had a fresh tree growing up but usually purchased and didn’t cut ourselves). I honestly think I was 3 or 4 but I have such nostalgic feelings of that day every single year. It’s so funny how these seemingly minor events can stick with us our whole life. Since this is mine and Dan’s first tree together we have no ornaments. With a busy work week ahead we will likely stare at a blank tree for the next week but I’m excited to come up with a unique way to decorate this little 🌲 of ours!
This was my first Ugly Christmas Sweater party so naturally, I cut a bunch of greenery from outside and sewed a real live wreath onto my sweater 😂 So much fun getting in the festive spirit with some #RobertMondavi wine and friends! . These special edition @RobertMondaviPS Ugly Sweater wine cozies make this bottle of wine the perfect hosting gift this holiday season...especially if you are going to an ugly sweater party (like, how perfect that would be?!). The dressed up wines are the Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon (both available at LCBO!) which are deliciously easy drinking but also interesting (for the people who like to stand around and talk about wine, like me 😂). The perfect combo 🍷 #UglySweater #sponsored 📷:@jessundecided
