It’s hard for me to believe that it is almost Christmas! It feels like the past few months have flown by and I am not even remotely prepared for the holidays! Nonetheless, I am looking forward to sleeping in and enjoying delicious food over the next few weeks so my countdown is on! Here are the five things that I am loving right now:
I have been a Mindy Kailing fan for many years, and when I first heard about her movie Late Night earlier this year I was really excited to watch it. Unfortunately, I was unable to make it to the movie theatre to see it so I was thrilled when it was released on Amazon Prime earlier this month. This past Friday after a long day at work, I poured myself a glass of wine and settled in to finally watch this movie. It was just what I needed! Funny, smart and well written I expected nothing less from Mindy Kailing. If you are looking for a great movie to watch I highly recommend this one.
I am always on the hunt for a great smelling candle and I especially love it if I don’t have to pay a ridiculous amount of money for it. While doing a bit of Christmas shopping the other day, I discovered Capri Blue candles. All of the candles that I tried smelled amazing but I finally settled on Exotic Blossom and Basil which has a light clean fragrance. Once lit my home smelling fresh and welcoming, love it!
There are always such delicious baked goodies around the holidays but my absolute favourite is always gingerbread. I have been on the hunt for some over the past couple of weeks and FINALLY this past weekend I found my favourite holiday treat! It was soooo good and I am planning to enjoy a few more before the holidays are over.
I made the decision at the beginning of 2019 to listen to more podcasts. I really enjoy listening to them as I get dressed in the morning or even while I eat breakfast. I consider podcasts a great way to learn about subjects and people that interest me. One of my favourite podcasts is the Goop podcast and last week the host chatted with Melody Hobson about being colour brave rather then colour blind. As a visible minority I really connected with the subject matter, and I strongly feel that anyone that is interested in this issue listen to this podcast as Melody Hobson is a articulate, incredible woman who is really interesting to listen to.
Maybe it’s the colder temperature and my desire to nest in a chic space, or my love for marble and contrasts but I have absolutely fallen in love with this kitchen. The colour of the statement foliage on the counter contrasts well against the marble, cabinetry and floor and helps to elevate the chicness of the entire space. Bright, beautiful and welcoming this kitchen is definitely going on my mood board!
