Currently Loving

I love almost everything about the holiday season! Except maybe the cold 😉

This first one is not holiday related but a few products I have quickly grown to love from Beautycounter, their concealer pen, blush and charcoal mist.

My friend, Brie is a consultant so if you have any questions check out her site here.

Our new sprinkles from The Sparkling Pantry:

I bought these at the market my Mom and I went to last weekend and now want all the sprinkles off their Etsy site!

Speaking of the market, my Mom bought me this mug there:

So obsessed with it and it is perfect for me!

Getting outside in this nice weather! Winter is not so bad when it is not -20 and we can get outside and enjoy it. We have a rink behind our house and I hope to get out a lot to go skating – it was one of my favourite childhood activities 🙂

Creating Christmas traditions with the girls, from baking cookies, decorating our gingerbread house, donating toys, making Christmas crafts – all these little things add up.

Our yearly family photo book from Mixbook:

I started creating these for us and our family members 4 years ago and not only do I love putting them together but looking back through them.

Our joint (early) Christmas gift to each other – Google Wifi. For some reason we have struggled to get decent Wifi in our entire house since moving in. So I am very happy to have Wifi in our entire house now!

    I also love my Beauty Counter concealor pen and blush. I really want the charcoal mist (and everything else) haha

    I love the ornaments you made. I should do something like that with Liam this year.

      haha – I think those are my favourite three things so far – though I just am trying the exfoliater and really like it too.
      It was so easy, I think the paint inside or stuffing the stuff inside was the best – we tried melting crayons and glitter but that did not work as good.

    Your photo album looks really nice! I do one every year with Shutterfly and I'd like to buy it now because they're having big sales but I want to get all our Christmas photos in. Will you just put the photos from this Christmas into next year's book?
    I love the idea of custom spinkles – They are sooo pretty, but so far have resisted – We'll see how much longer…

      Thank you! I do – I add December into the next year just so I can get them in time for gifts.
      Avery is so obsessed with sprinkles – it is how I get her to eat oatmeal haha

    I need To check out mixbooks! I did Shutterfly this year for some photo books but I hate That they are US. Are Mixbooks US$?

    Oh I need to try that concealer pen!

    Love those ornaments you made! So cute!!

    I’ll have to look into this Google Wifi. Ours can be spotty in a few places.

    That mug is perfect!!
